"The Sheikh's Unruly Lover" [Almasi Sheikhs Series, Book 2] by Leslie North

Author's Book Description : Following a recent merger, American executive assistant Marian is sent overseas to meet with her company’s new Arab business partner. But once Marian sees who she’ll be working with—the handsome Sheikh Omar Almasi—she’s instantly wary of his good looks and brooding demeanor. When circumstances force her to step into her boss’ shoes, Marian is more than ready to prove she should be taken seriously...even if it means working side by side with the surly, sexy sheikh.

Two years after losing his wife to cancer, Omar is more driven than ever in his family’s oil business. He opposed the merger with the US tech firm, and now that it’s done, he refuses to compromise himself for corporate Americans. But Omar is caught off guard when he meets beautiful, business-savvy Marian. The woman drives him wild with her stubborn determination and her distracting allure. He’s never had to work so closely with someone so…feminine, and the more time they spend together, the more he has to fight his impulses.

Soon their attraction is undeniable, but with the wound of his wife’s death still not healed, Omar may never be ready to move on…unless Marian can show him how to love again.

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! Will Marian & Omar be able to move on from their misgivings to negotiate a good deal or will everything fall apart, just as they try to get their bliss?

While I liked this novel's pace, premise, and plot, I had a hard time truly enjoying Marian and Omar as characters. At times, Marian seemed too brash to be enjoyable and Omar played to the "beta hero" role so much that I felt it was hard to like him as a male lead. Though I will admit they made a very good duo. And Marian had just enough forthrightness to get Omar out of his widower self-seclusion.

This was the first novel I've read within this series. And though I did not feel lost, I recommend it to those who are fans of Ms. North's more than anyone else. Yet, as it is a standalone novel, it is also for those who are wanting a steamy contemporary romance.
