A Cut Throat Business-Julia Bennett-Book Review

A Cutthroat Business

About the book (provided by KOBO) 
Everyone has warned new-minted realtor Savannah Martin that real estate is a cutthroat business. But Savannah doesn’t think she’s supposed to take the warning literally ... until an early morning phone call sends her to an empty house on the ‘bad’ side of town, where she finds herself standing over the butchered body of a competitor, face to face with the boy her mother always warned her about.
Rafe Collier is six feet three inches of testosterone and trouble; tall, dark, and dangerous, with a murky past and no future—not the kind of guy a perfect Southern Belle should want to tangle with. In any way. But wherever Savannah turns, there he is, and making no bones about what he wants from her.
Now Savannah must figure out who killed real estate queen Brenda Puckett, make a success of her new career, and avoid getting killed—or kissed—by Rafe, all before the money in her savings account runs out and she has to go back to selling make-up at the mall.

And I thought...
Another new one to add to the favorites list.  I can't wait to get a chance to read book 2 and the remainder of the series.

This was a fun read and kept too interested!  I had a hard time getting anything done.  I kept wanting to know 'who dun it' and I kind a was wanting to the romance to continue. 

I loved the main characters and I can't wait to see if they ever do end up as a couple.  Sorry to spill the beans but they didn't in book 1.  There's a lot of sizzle.  But no bedroom scenes.  
Other than the fact that there are 2 murders this is a 'G' rated book.
This is a good 'clean' book.  (read additional reviews for other opinions)

I did really enjoy Savannah she was just delightful. Her character is full of southern charm and wit.  She struggles to start over after a failed marriage with determination and savvy.

And then there's the gorgeous and mysterious badboy(man) Rafe he just oozes charm. 

I really enjoyed this book.  The story kept me interested from page one and until the end.  I really didn't want it to end!  
There is mystery and some suspense and just a tad bit of romance.  

I will buy the series.  I would recommend the book to friends. 

I read this book on my phone using the Kobo app.  
I was not asked by anyone to write a review. 

This review will be posted on Amazon, Kobo, Good Reads and may appear on My Journey Back and Springtime In Magnolia
