All the Right Places
The first of a new contemporary romance series, Jenna Sutton brings readers into the world of a family-owned clothing manufacturer, as we meet the family, learn about the industry and cheer on Amelia and Quinn as they struggle with the business, their attraction and their own very unique thoughts on the future.
Amelia is a designer, brought into the company by Quinn’s sister Teagan to revamp the woman’s division and, without his knowledge, revamp the entire company. While Quinn’s intention is to close the woman’s division, he can’t help but find reasons to keep the redhead around.
A bit of a slow start to build background and give information, the story soon moved forward nicely, with both Quinn and Amelia being understandably reserved about a personal relationship. Oh, they both dance around the issue, and their chemistry did scorch my fingers more than once, but the wait for them to finally throw caution to the wind was well worth it!
History and family loyalty are a huge player in this book, along with the responsibility and pressure that each of the O’Brien siblings have when they consider the very real possibility of the business just surviving, or possibly failing. They are a bit at cross purposes, and it’s not always easy to see just HOW things will work out, but the strength of that family tie, and the dedication to the business from them and their employees is a solidly portrayed element that adds a sense of realness to the story. Glimpses into the interior thoughts of Quinn and the pressure he feels as the new CEO, and touches of ‘things to come’ with secondary characters help to keep the story from being one note. Descriptions, plenty of pop culture references and an overall sense of caring for those who are in the circle fill out the story nicely.
With a fast forward epilogue that jumps a decade ahead, a happy resolution (finally) for Quinn and Amelia, and an overall optimistic and happy story makes a great start for a new series.

The first in a brand new contemporary romance series starring the men and women who are determined to keep the billion-dollar denim dynasty, Riley O’Brien & Co, on top, but aren’t about to let success stand in the way of love…
Amelia Winger is a small-town girl with big dreams of becoming a successful designer. So when she gets a gig designing accessories for denim empire Riley O’Brien & Co., it’s a dream come true. Amelia can handle the demanding job, but she isn’t quite prepared for sexy CEO Quinn O’Brien. She’s doing her best to keep things professional, but the attraction sparking between them makes it personal. And so does the secret project she's working on behind his back...
Quinn’s not interested in the new accessories, but he is interested in the woman designing them. Amelia is smart, sexy, and talented, and he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about her since they met. Mixing business and pleasure isn’t wise, but that doesn’t stop him from coming up with excuses to spend time with her. He thinks he understands the risk he’s taking when he gets involved with Amelia. But he doesn’t know he’s risking a lot more than his heart.
