I remember that day like it was only yesterday - it was the worst day of my life and hours later turned into the best day of my life.

Filling her days with her businesses, properties and charities, she has no time for anything or anybody. She thought she had it all figured out until she met 31 year old American, Matthew Jackson.
Matthew Jackson is handsome and rich. He’s been set for life since the age of 21 when he and his brother set up their business enterprise, Jackson Industries. Living his millionaire lifestyle with fast cars and fast women. But when he meets Casey he wonders if it’s time for him to settle down.

I almost loved this one!!
While reading it, I had few ups and downs with it. I liked it at first, because the story is very original and I was very excited to continue reading it. Then the story got too-good-to-be-true with the main character living a fairytale and everything was perfect! -which I didn’t like- Afterwards, the book turned to be really really great. But, the ending was not the best choice, in my opinion…
But, let’s take it step by step..
The story is very original, and I loved that! It’s a little hard to find stories that aren’t similar to others. The Phoenix series accomplished that. The story is unique, and you will not find it anywhere else.
The main character, Casey, is the good girl who turned out to be the luckiest girl in the world. Imagine the best girl winning millions! She is a strong, young woman who made that luck into continuous good business decisions and intelligence. She is a fierce, brilliant businesswoman and I absolutely adored that! She believed in herself and there is nothing better in a person or character than confidence. However, at one point, I lost my connection with her, but it is likely because I have never been in her shoes.
Her brilliance is one of the things I loved about her, and that is why the ending was so frustrating to me. She made a really bad and stupid decision, and I just can’t sympathize or find some common ground with her logic.
Matt, on the other hand, remained consistent. He is sexy, smart, funny and completely irresistible!!!!! No one cannot not fall in love with him!!
In general, the book was good. I really liked the story, and I believe in the characters, despite their flaws. I liked the writing and I think the story has much potential to become really great! I have to admit that the ending played a very negative role in my overall opinion, because I can’t find Casey’s decision logical at all.
But I did love the twist in the story, there in the end!
So, Business receives 4 Gorgeous Stars!!!
