Early Review for "If I Say Yes" by Brandy Jellum

If I Say Yes
Author: Brandy Jellum
Published: May 1st, 2014


Elizabeth Lewis was the child of Hollywood’s darling couple, until her father murdered her mother.

Six years later, she has traded her flashy, luxurious lifestyle for one of safe anonymity as a literary agent. With a different name and appearance, Liza Winter is living the life of her dreams—one where she’s known for who she is instead of what her father did. Except her apartment should be condemned, her car only starts when it wants, she hates the romance genre she has been assigned, and the CEO’s deliciously attractive nephew is out to ruin her carefully laid plans.

Reid Harder has never met an obstacle he couldn’t overcome. When his new position in the romance department comes with a benefit his uncle didn’t mention, he decides to wage a war against the intelligent, beautiful Liza to destroy every argument she has for turning him down. Still, the closer he gets to winning the prize, the more he realizes that the woman is keeping secrets that may endanger not just her life but his.

Will Liza overcome her mistrust of Reid to reveal her secrets before he learns the truth and walks away? Or will a grudge-wielding apparition from her past make her the next deadly Hollywood headline?


** I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!!**

If I say yes is definitely a different book than I normally read. I loved the suspense of the book. It kept me going to want to see who was behind it all. I think I was a touch disappointed about why and who it was but it doesn't make me like the book any less.

After Elizabeth or Liza walks into see her mother murder by the hands of her father she just wants to forget it all. She changes her name and becomes a literary agent who seems to have sworn off guys for some reason (not telling you!! :-P)

Reid is the nephew to the owner of company that she works for and has an instant attraction to Liza. He knows what's in her file at work and he tries going by that to read her. He has witty charm and sarcasm and he also seems to have a dark side that we don't learn too much about. Reid slowly begins to break down her brick walls and prove to her that he isn't just a playboy.

Elias is Liza's best friend and he is a sweet heart. He's there for her and picks up the pieces when things hit the fan. He truly cares for her and in this case, it's true what they say about being friend zoned.

Before you know it you start thinking maybe it's not worth to keep a secret. Maybe we can't hide from our past. Letting it all hang out of course can make or break you, but no matter what you can't run.

I really want to know more about Reid and his past. The suspense and the romance kept me going and with a cliffhanger like that I can't wait to read the next book!
