Book Review: The Rule Maker by Jennifer Blackwood


Cover Design : L.J. Anderson / Mayhem Designs
Model: Kamil Nizinski
Release Date: January 16, 2017
Ten Steps to Surviving a New Job:   1. Don’t sleep with the client. It’ll get you fired. (Sounds easy enough.)   2. Don’t blink when new client turns out to be former one-night stand.   3. Don’t call same client a jerk for never texting you back.   4. Don’t believe client when he says he really, really wanted to call.   5. Remember, the client is always right—so you can’t junk punch him when he demands new design after new design.   6. Ignore accelerated heartbeat every time sexy client walks into room.   7. Definitely ignore client’s large hands. They just mean he wears big gloves.   8. Don’t let client’s charm wear you down. Be strong.   9. Whatever you do, don’t fall for the client. You’ll lose more than your job—maybe even your heart.   10. If all else fails, see rule number one again.


Zoey is not having a good day, not at all. She nearly dies choking on on a piece of candy while reading an email that will change her life. She is an interior designer and has been asked to do an overhaul for the brother of the guy (Ryder) that never called her after hitting it off so well four months before. What Zoey doesn't know is that her day is about to get a lot worse when looking at the job site she gets stuck in a window. To make matters worse, Ryder shows up to the site while she's in a very embarrassing position. Zoey and Ryder are forced to work together on this project since Ryder's brother was involved in an accident. Zoey is afraid working with Ryder will jeopardize her chances of getting the promotion she has been working so hard for. Meanwhile, Ryder is in a transition period with his life as a professional snowboarder after breaking his leg. He has trouble understanding what else he has in his life other than snowboarding. He is also trying to help his brother after the accident and struggles with keeping his distance from Zoey. Zoey is afraid for her job and for her heart once Ryder completely recovers. Will Ryder go away never to be heard from again after his leg heals? These two each have obstacles to overcome and understand what they want out of their life. This book was as enjoyable as the first and had a lot of great dialogue that made me laugh out loud. You will also see glimpses of past characters from the previous book, which is always a lot of fun! Make sure to give this book a try and you won't regret it!
