The Billionaire’s Wake-Up-Call Girl by Annika Martin Publication Date: July 9th, 2018 Genre: Romantic Comedy
SYNOPSIS: When my manager assigns me the task of finding a new wake up call service for our CEO, I think, how hard can this be?
Answer: practically impossible. It turns out that no wake-up call company in the world will take him on as a client. They’ve all had enough of his surly personality.
So in an effort not to lose my job, I secretly start making the calls myself, every day at 4:30 am sharp. OMG yes you read that right—four freaking thirty in the morning.
Confession: I’m not the nicest wake-up-call girl at that hour. Hello! Who wakes up before the roosters are even crowing? Luckily he doesn’t seem to mind my get-your-ass-out-of-bed attitude.
Day by day we’re becoming closer, and the calls start turning hot, like pay-by-the-minute hot and oh-so-wild. Snuggled under the covers with the moonlight streaming in the windows, we divulge our secrets to each other, but the one thing that he can never find out is that the sexy vixen who wakes him up every morning is just the lowly assistant who wears frumpy dresses. I can only imagine his disappointment.
Now he wants to take me out on a date and he’s scouring Manhattan to find me. He’s an overachieving billionaire bent on a mission. How much longer can I keep up this charade?
REVIEW: 5 HILARIOUS STARS
The Billionaire's Wake-Up Call Girl was a brilliantly written, laugh-out-loud funny story filled with witty dialogue and sizzling hot chemistry. Annika Martin is one of my favorite authors, and with this story she gives readers a heartfelt and unexpected love story between two completely different people.
“Wake up, motherf****er," I say. "It's time to rise and shine, ok?"
Theo and Lizzie were two really well-written characters. While some rom-coms tend to lack character development, this book contained two well-written main characters, each multi-layered and so likeable. Lizzie was such a witty, intelligent, strong girl, with a sense of humor that had me hanging on to her every word. Life had knocked her down pretty hard but she refused to stay down. She made me laugh so many times, especially during her phone conversations with Theo. Theo was so stoic and straight-laced, a self-professed workaholic who put work before everything else, including his personal life. His interactions with Lizzie brought out a different side to him, which was awesome to witness. These two were absolutely perfect together, and everything from their intense sexual tension to their opposite personalities was so well done.
"He's such a control freak that it's not enough for him to run his own company like Stalin on steroids, now he has to tell me how to do my imaginary job."
Their back and forth banter was on-point and made for some seriously hilarious scenes. The dual POV allowed the reader to see their unconventional relationship through both of their lenses. Their chemistry was off the charts, and their intimate moments, both over the phone and in person, were among the hottest I've ever read. This was one of those couples who truly brought out the best in each other, and Martin did a fabulous job showing their progression as a couple.
"This blend of dislike and obedience and heat is the most f***ing erotic combination I've ever experienced."
Annika Martin wove such a unique and enjoyable storyline, with just enough unpredictability to keep me completely engaged while reading. The mix of warmth and angst, comedy and romance was really well done. I really hope that this author has more romantic comedies planned in the future, because she truly excels in this genre.
