Black Tie Optional-Book Reivew

About the book (provided by Tasty Tours)
Everything about Coleman Grant III oozes power and sex. And not the perfunctory kind either, but the sheet clawing, heart stopping, gasping for air after you’ve screamed so loud you can’t breathe kind. From his dark wavy hair that stands in an artfully rumpled mess, to the blue eyes that sear your skin, to his full, sensual lips - on the surface he’s pure perfection.
Too bad he's an asshole. An arrogant, uptight corporate raider hell bent on destroying the environment one species at a time.
Everything about Olivia Ramsey screams hippie humanitarian. From her blond hair tied in a sloppy bun, to her faded jeans with the Bonnaroo patch sewn on the thigh, to her combat boots still splattered with mud from the previous day’s site visit.
So it makes perfect sense that they would get married. In Vegas. Stone-cold sober.Cole needs a wife. Olivia needs to save an endangered species. But what starts as a marriage of convenience soon turns into a battle of wills and sexual tension. Love is a game, and Olivia and Cole are ready to win.
And I thought
I loved it. 
 I will caution some friends right up front.  This book is steamy. This book is somewhat graphic in the bedroom  rated a 3 for heat in the description and the language is well let me just say there is a lot! 

But, the story is great.  The characters are great!  All of them! 
Well one isn't such a charmer but every great story needs 1!

From page 1 I loved Olivia and Cole.  The banter between the them was playful at least most of the time and funny.  

They each tell themselves that they hate the other.  But deep down they don't.   It takes them a while to discover how they really feel about about each other while taking the reader on a fun and somewhat wild ride during their romance.  

I loved visiting Olivia's farm home.  Her parents were delightful. 
The chapter(s) during the visit I think were my favorite part 
of the book.  I am probably biased but I enjoyed the visit to the farm.

Olivia's friend Cassie was fun to get to know.  I hope she and the rest of the cast is in the next book.  I kind of wondered if Cassie might be the one to settle Connor Coleman's best friend done.

Coleman's sister Rebecca played a small role in the story but a huge role in Coleman's life.  I hope Rebecca gets to stick around and maybe be the main character of another story.  I could see Olivia having to keep Coleman at bay from trying to interfere in 
Rebecca's love life.  Interference is kind of a family trait for the Grants. 

Black Tie Optional for me was a wonderful story.  I really am glad that I took a plunge on the Wild side and read it. 

If you like romance I promise you'll become a fan of 
Anne Marie Walker and the Wild Wedding Series.

I received a complimentary e-copy from Tasty Tours.
