Drawn Through You Synopsis:

What if the brooding billionaire wore pencil skirts and Louboutins? What if the impressionable intern was a small-town furniture maker with boyish charm?

Cole Jacobson always thought he would take after his father and pursue his dreams. But when the family business falters and he’s forced to accept his uncle’s help, Cole is summoned to the big city for a job he never wanted.

Priorities become obscured when Cole finds himself working for Shaun Wright, the strong, intimidating, and ruthlessly attractive business partner at his uncle’s contracting firm. Forced to either sacrifice his hard-won integrity or leave behind the one thing that brings him true happiness, Cole must make a decision that could cost him both. A decision only complicated by the sexy, inscrutable woman he can’t stop thinking about. A woman who just might be as intrigued as he is to cross professional boundaries.

A provocative, trope-twisting romance, Sarina Rhoads’s Drawn Through You finally puts the heroine on the other side of the desk.


My Review:

Drawn Through You is the debut novel from author Sarina Rhoads, and let me just say, what a debut it is!  I loved this book from start to finish…

Taking the power roles and flipping them on their heads, Ms. Rhoads gave the normal roles we are so used to reading and redefined them beautifully.  I loved that the heroine was the woman on top when it came to the career aspect. I love that the hero was able to work with that, but when things got hot and heavy between them, he had no issue to show her when her being in charge came to an end.  And man, if that wasn’t hot! Let’s be honest, it takes a strong man, both in books and in real life, to let a woman be in charge in the professional world, and Cole’s ability to do so, had me swooning.  But don’t get me wrong, there were plenty of insert-foot-in-mouth moments for Cole when he first met Shaun, and it was just adorable.  There are so many wonderful layers to each character and they are written in a way where both Shaun and Cole are strong but vulnerable, and I loved that.

Moving beyond that, both having to work for a company in positions neither one is really thrilled with, gave them even more of a reason to come together.  I loved that aspect as well.  Cole was being thrown into a job he never wanted, in order to save his family’s small town business and Shaun was working under a man who sees her as nothing but a skirt where she constantly has to prove herself…both stuck between a rock and a hard place.  Of course all of this is strife is caused by one man, who I loved to hate: Cole’s uncle.  He is a slimy villain and, because Ms. Rhoads rocks, definitely got what was coming to him in the end.

I just have to mention one of my favorite parts of this book was when Cole took Shaun back to his hometown and they spent time enjoying what small towns are known for.  A festival, charming streets, simple life.  It was a really magical section of this story and I had to give it a shout out!

If you’re looking for a fresh story, interesting and well-written characters, this is a book I highly recommend picking up.  I’m looking forward to more from this debut author! Thank you, Ms. Rhoads, for a wonderful read.
