Book Review: The Ultimate Merger By Delaney Diamond

The Ultimate Merger is a short story. It’s the prequel to Second Chances, Book 4 of the Hot Latin Men series.

Two workaholics slow down long enough to find love when they least expect it.

Renaldo da Silva is on the verge of entering the U.S. market with the purchase of a hotel in downtown Chicago. After working hard for several days straight, he heads to a local bar and sees a woman who instantly makes him reconsider how to spend his evening.

When another one of her male counterparts unfairly becomes the lead on a project, Sabrina Porter leaves work intent on drowning her sorrows in wine and loud music at a local bar. Instead, she meets a sexy Brazilian who’s intent on showing her a different way to unwind.

15746949I loved this 11 chapter book. My favorite lines: 1) She needed a man like she needed a hole in her head. 2) It was perfect. And that’s what she feared. It was too perfect.

Sabrina had a friends with benefits called Samuel. She ditched him when she met Renaldo, and I couldn’t blame her. The scene at the bar where they first met was HOT!!! The author managed to give the characters amazing sexual chemistry, especially dealing with the tension.

I liked that they both had careers and took their jobs seriously. In fact, Renaldo was returning to Brazil after he finished in the States. The whole time I kept thinking ‘please make up, please make up before he goes!’ She was dealing with a family emergency after they had a big blowout.

Delaney Diamond had a brilliant talent with characterization. Even though it was a short story, she managed to have me care for Sabrina and Renaldo. It felt like I knew them, and I definitely plan on reading the rest of the series. The ending was cute and sweet. I sneaked at the excerpt for the next book in the series and it looks like it’s filled with drama.

I RECOMMEND this book to read.
