Review: Market for Love by Jill Elaine Hughes


Heroine Miranda Johansson has had a very bad day. The strait-laced, ultraconservative stock-market analyst in Chicago’s LaSalle Street financial district just lost eighty-seven million dollars of her clients’ money in a massive stock-market implosion. And if that weren’t bad enough, she just had wild, no-holds-barred sex with a complete stranger on her coffee break----and that complete stranger turns out to be her new boss! Can Miranda get control of herself without losing her job, and her mind? Or will her sexy new boss completely derail her self-discipline, her stock portfolio, and her career? (Not to mention the sudden intrusion of his manipulative ex-girlfriend---a scheming, ruthless woman who controls half of Wall Street.)
Will Miranda survive the ups and downs of her new love life, which is just as volatile and unpredictable as the market? Or will her new romance go down the tubes along with the economy? Only time will tell.
Readers who are down and out about their trashed investment portfolios can pick up a copy of MARKET FOR LOVE and forget all about the economic downturn. Read the book, and have a little fun peeking inside the unseen world of the sexy young investment bankers who’ve been pushed to the edge along with everyone else.

Jenny's Review
***I received this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review.***
Millions of money loss, hot sex with a stranger who turns out to be her boss, manipulative ex-girlfirend, hostile takeover, blackmail and did I mention HOT SEX. Market for Love by Jill Elaine Hughes has it all and then some. . Miranda is a straight-laced, conservative stock maket analyst who is at the beginning of the worst day of her life when she meet a stranger that she seduces during her coffee break. Turns out that stranger is her new boss Max. With Miranda's initial encounter with Max, her seamless normal life is turn upside down and changes Miranda in more ways then she every thought possible. 

I liked this book.The characters were well written and I was invested in their story.The book draws you in from the first page.  There are a lot of laughs, emotional ups and downs as well as some twist and turns throughout the story. There is one particular twist within involving Max that I did not see coming. Definitely a WTF moment while reading.  And it was great to see the dynamic between Miranda and Max while they navigate the feelings that they have for each other. I really enjoyed to fast-pace of the story. There really wasn't any dull moments.  A nice surprise and a great read.
