Worth the Challenge (Worth it, Book 3) By Karen Erickson @karenerickson

Excerpt from Amazon:

Together, they’re magic. Now to capture it in a bottle…

Worth It, Book 3

For once in his errant life, Rhett Worth is ready to prove to his older brothers he’s more than good looks and a woman-melting smile. Except he’s screwed up. And it’s about to hit the fan as he prepares to tell them he’s failed to deliver the master perfumer, Michel Durand, to create Worth Luxury’s signature scent.

Then salvation walks through the boardroom door, all wrapped up in a petite, seductive package.

Gabriella Durand is prepared to beg the Worths to give her capricious father another chance. Instead, she finds the devastatingly handsome Rhett Worth offering it to her as if he’d planned it all along. And Gabriella, hungry to emerge from her father’s shadow, jumps at it.

Soon they’re in Maui to hunt for the perfect scent…and find it in the tropical breeze that washes across their entwined bodies. Now the pressure is on to capture that passion in a bottle—before they let love complicate the delicate mix. Before a whiff of betrayal threatens to destroy everything.

Warning: The last of the Worth brothers, he’s the wildest one of all. Expect lots of challenges, much yearning, plenty of vulnerabilities revealed—and lots of macho Alpha behavior on the hero’s part. Don’t worry, though. He’ll be begging for the heroine’s love before the end, we guarantee it.

I have a soft spot for bad boys and rebel children.  Rhett fits both those descriptions very well.  He is the rapscallion brother that seems to get away with just doing little to nothing.  Alex finally gives him a chance to have some responsibility in the form of developing a new perfume line.  Two months in to the development and he has nothing to show for it.  The man he had chosen as the designer for the perfume has failed to commit and he doesn’t know what to do.

Gabriella Durand is hoping that Rhett will allow her to have the contract in place of her flaky father.  This is her chance to make her own name in the perfume world.  Rhett sees her as a blessing when she walks in on the day that his brothers are demanding results.

These two come together because they both have something to prove.  I like that.  I know what it is like to feel like you always have to prove yourself and no one believes that you have actually changed.  I would love to be able to actually smell Ella’s fragrance, though!

I have to admit that the curve ball thrown at the end of the story actually left me wanting to read the next phase in this story.  Can’t wait to see where Ms. Erickson takes this trio of brothers.
