Third in the “sweet and sumptuous”* romance series from the author of Coming Apart at the Seams... Thirty-year-old Bebe Banerjee is desperate to get rid of two things: her fiancé and her virginity. Escaping her arranged marriage might be impossible, but she refuses to give her firsts to an entitled jerk who lives on another continent. Instead, she devises a plan that guarantees another man will get her momentous firsts. But she never imagined that man would be Cal O'Brien, the gorgeous heir to the Riley O'Brien & Co. denim empire…
Although Cal has always been fascinated by Bebe's brilliant mind and beautiful eyes, he's never pursued her. She can't stand the sight of him, and every time they're in the same room, they end up trading insults. Yet when he finds out about Bebe's bold plan, he makes his move, unaware of her upcoming nuptials. He promises to make her firsts unforgettable, but he doesn't know how hard it will be to forget her when their arrangement ends.
With every book Sutton continues to out do herself with her heroes. Every story I say okay this guy is my favorite then bam a new book and a new favorite but by far it has to be Cal.
Hanging By A Thread is a super sweet and delightful read. The storyline of him falling for his little sisters best friend has been done so many times but I enjoyed the spin the Sutton put on this one. Cal has been attracted to Bebe since they first met but after hearing a very private and real conversation between Bebe and his sister he decides he's the one man who give Bebe the experience she is looking for.
Once these two start on their journey of helping Bebe get rid of her virginity I could see the connection building between them. And oh boy does it get steamy! I felt in this story Sutton took scenes up another notch and it was appreciated. *winks*
I liked Bebe's character and how smart she was. At times I felt bad how much of an outsider her family made her feel and for the fact she was set to marry someone she doesn't love but in the end I'm so glad everything worked out.
I enjoyed Sutton's writing and I felt the dialogue was fun and flirty in this story. As the storyline continued to grow so did the characters which only made me enjoy it more. I hope this isn't the last of the O' Brien's that we will be seeing.
