Small town. Big ego. Huge... plans?
Carter Graves is as smooth as the weave of his designer suit, and just as out of my price range. He sweeps into Wittville ready to wheel, deal and melt some panties, quickly topping my short list of men I love to hate and would hate to love.
Before I know it, he's got his sexy eyes set on me and his talented hands all over my business.
My family's business, of course. What were you thinking?
The contract he waves in my face will turn my quiet little life upside down, but it's his seductive smile that threatens to do the same to my heart. If he really thinks being the hottest guy in town is enough to make me roll over and let him turn us into just another faceless franchise, he's got another think coming.
I'm not signing unless he can convince me he wants more than just another notch on his resume. Or his bedpost.
There's just one problem with my strategy.
The harder I make him work, the harder it will be to watch him go.
Stiff is a full length stand-alone romance with no cheating and a resounding happily ever after.

This was a pretty good read. The writing flowed well, and I liked Carter and Sadie together for the most part. Sadie was really hard on Carter after she found out who he was, and I wasn't sure why she pushed so hard with the negotiations. She was getting everything she wanted and more, and still she fought him. When she wasn't being difficult with him, I loved their banter back and forth. It made for great chemistry. I thought it was pretty crappy how her parents dumped the whole situation in her lap. If they didn't think she wanted to take over, why would they put her in charge of the deal? It didn't make a whole lot of sense to me. The story being set in a funeral home environment was something I've never read before, and made the story line interesting. I will definitely be reading whatever is next from this author! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book.
Sadie's family owns a funeral home which Carter's family is in the process of buying to add to their chain of funeral homes. Sadie surprisingly finds herself reluctant to sign it away, especially to sexy hot Carter who she find herself equally irritated with and attracted to. Carter wants to prove to his family that he's more than just a pretty face and is determined to close the deal and make Sadie his. This funny, sweet, sexy romance has a great cast of characters, especially Sadie and Carter. The writing is great and so is the chemistry between Sadie and Carter. I had a smile on my face through most of this book. It's just such a fun read with some hot love scenes that really spice things up! I loved it.
