Building Love Book 1

Release Date: March 22, 2017

Catherine(Cat)Warner has problems. The profits from her inns are down. The pressure from her parents is up. Her love life is non-existent. But Cat did manage to get the attention of tough, powerful, gorgeous hotel magnate Ty Orland. Unfortunately, his interest in her is for all the wrong reasons. Instead of wanting Cat, this debonair CEO only wants her land—a parcel he desperately needs for his next big development deal. Too bad, it’s not for sale. A people pleaser by nature, Cat knows to stand strong. If she caves in to the demands of this sexy, alluring man, it will be her own neck on the line.

Ty Orland has a lot of things going for him. Success. Power. Respect. Unfortunately, he’s also got an old chip on his shoulder and a new financial nightmare. His development deal is going down in flames—and fast. His only way out is if Cat sells him her strategically located parcel. But romancing the land from her is not easy when love gets in the way. The woman is as beautiful as she is beguiling. And Ty no longer knows which prize is more valuable.

Catherine (Cat) Warner and Ty Orland are both in Las Vegas for a hotelier Convention. Ty is trying to buy a key piece of land that Catherine owns, although she is not willing to sell it.  She has fond memories of her family vacationing there and no amount of money is worth it to her.  Ty becomes frustrated as he spent a lot of time and money on this project and her land is the crucial piece in building a new resort. Ty decides to meet Catherine in person at the convention to discuss selling the land to him.   

Before their meeting, the convention holds a cocktail party which they both attend.  Cat and Ty meet and there is an instant connection.  They flirt and both have a great time, until Ty realizes he needs to leave to meet with Catherine. Unfortunately, he leaves before telling her his name, number or asking to meet again.  Wouldn’t you know, who shows up to the business meeting… but Cat. They are both shocked and confused.  Ty ponders, how can he try and convince her to sell her precious land when he also wants her?  Cat wonders, is Ty really into her or is he just romancing her to get the land?

Betting on Love in Vegas was a fun beach read and I thoroughly enjoyed the story line.  The characters were entertaining and recommend you adding it to your TBR list!
