Review – Limited Time Offer (Brew Crew, #1) by Kelly Jamieson

Sex may sell, but their deal doesn’t include love…

Brew Crew, Book 1

Account Director Sloane Granderson has been given her orders by the CEO—tone down the antics of the “Brew Crew”, the guys at Huxworth Packard Advertising who work on their biggest account. Sure, they’re all puffed up, strutting egos, but they’re also the best and brightest creatives in Chicago. Including the newest recruit, disturbingly attractive Levi Wolcott.

Award-winning copywriter Levi is pumped to have been headhunted to Huxworth Packard to work on the beer account. But he’s not off to a good start when he and Sloane first meet in an embarrassing encounter in a hotel hall, and the Brew Crew’s merciless new-guy hazing doesn’t improve his shaky first impression. Even worse, Levi can’t ignore the intense attraction he has to Sloane.

Despite their mutual “hell no” when it comes to love, a moment of weakness makes Sloan and Levi believe business and pleasure can be kept separate, and maybe a little harmless sex isn’t that dangerous.

Or maybe it’s as harmless as a bomb with a lit fuse…

Warning: This book contains a hero with an award-winning, panty-melting vocabulary intent on the hard sell, and a take-charge businesswoman who doesn’t mind giving up control in the bedroom…and thinks panties are overrated, anyway.

Dear Author,

I don’t typically write my reviews in this format, but I REALLY needed to address an issue I had with this book. You probably would have received a higher ranking from me if this issue weren’t present. Especially considering the storyline was refreshing and entertaining.

Although I COMPLETELY understand that Levi has a filthy/dirty mouth in the bedroom, a reader (at least one like me), really doesn’t want to read this sentence while totally getting in to a hot and heavy scene: “he grabbed her snatch…”. I know that coming up with alternative dirty words may be a difficult, but PLEASE don’t use the word snatch. It completely ruined “the mood” and I found myself turned off, not only from the scene, but also from the book in general, considering you used the word throughout the book.

If I weren’t a reviewer, I would have probably DNF’d this. But, I stuck with it and finished. Once I put aside the vocabulary, I was able to concentrate on the actual story, which by the way is really cute and sweet.

It was refreshing that the guy was the one who was the gigolo and fell for the girl. It was refreshing that the woman was professional, independent, wasn’t looking for a relationship and had to come to terms with life. I even enjoyed learning about the advertising scene from an employee’s perspective.

If you ever decide to edit this by changing the word snatch to something else, please let me know so that I can recommend this.
