The Feisty One (A Billionaire Pact Romance) by Cami Checketts {Review}

The Feisty One (A Billionaire Pact Romance) by Cami Checketts
Kindle Edition, 186 pages
Published February 25th 2016 by Birch River Publishing
Can he hide his heart or will the reporter take everything? 

Maryn Howe isn’t intimidated by billionaire recluse, Tucker Shaffer, or his enormous log cabin in Island Park, Idaho. Maryn needs this interview and she’ll get it at any cost, even if the last four reporters were physically removed from his presence. 

Tucker Shaffer has no desire to change his less than flattering public image; but his PR people persuade him to give it one more try. Ready to make nice with whoever comes through the door, Tucker is blindsided by a petite blond with an extra-large personality. As the snow piles up and the questions keep coming, Maryn discovers the secret Tucker Shaffer has spent the last four years torturing himself with. She suddenly sees him in a new light and she flees—right into danger and into Tucker’s arms. 

But the danger has just begun and now Maryn has to make a choice—trust in Tucker or lose it all. 
My Review: 5 Stars
Beauty and the Beast is one of my all-time fairy tales and this one had that kind of a vibe. Maryn is a reporter for a magazine and is finally granted an interview with recluse billionaire, Tucker. She has to go to his mansion of a log cabin in Island Park to do so, which proves to be quite dangerous--in more ways than one.
Cami Checketts is one of my favorite authors in the romantic suspense genre and this story has just the right amount of romance, peril, danger, attraction, and suspense. When you mix that in with a fantastic romance and great characters, it makes for a great read--one that I devoured in about a day.
Maryn is very feisty and I love a character who isn't easy intimidated. She adds some sass to the story, which really reaches in and touches Tucker's cold heart. I adored her character and spunk. As for Tucker, who can resist a big, growly, gorgeous man? He's more bark, than bite, and I can to love him and his generosity and protectiveness. He's got a quirky staff and I loved how they each reminded me of the Beast's help. The friendship is heartwarming. There are twists that I didn't see coming, romance that made me swoon, and an unexpected resolution to a charming tale! Loved it and I can't wait for more!
Content: no language; mild religious elements; mild violence; mild romance (kissing, spending a night together with nothing happening); no language. Clean!
