While fashion design major Caroline Hunter may have been born economically unlucky, in college, she’s been lucky in love. Until her senior year at Southern University. She’s gone from a serious long term boyfriend to a string of crappy dates.
Then she meets mathematics grad student Reed Pendergraft.
Reed is everything she’s not looking for. Serious. Headed for a low paying university job. Boring. Caroline spent the first eighteen years of her life wondering where her next meal was coming from. She sure wasn’t getting trapped in that life again with a man living on a professor’s salary.
An encounter with Reed in a club proves she might have pegged him wrong. He brings out a lusty side she never knew she had. But just when she’s about to give in to her hormones, Reed makes a fool out of her.
When she shows up for the first committee meeting for Southern University’s Fall fashion show, a fundraiser for underprivileged kids, Caroline’s horrified to discover the insufferable Reed is the committee chairman. While she refuses to tolerate his totalitarian rule of the committee, she’s not sure she’ll survive the month with her heart—and her pride—intact. Just when she thinks she has everything figured out, she finds that her entire life has been redesigned, thanks to Reed Pendergraft.
I am the kind of person that fall in love with authors and their books. I absolutely LOVE Denise and LOVE her books. She made me fall in love with her characters in Aftermath. And I didn't think I can love another set of characters the way I did with Scarlett and Tucker. But that wasn't the case, Caroline worked her way into my heart and Reed worked his way into my soul. I love how she worked the magic when those two were on page together.
I liked Reed from the very beginning. I liked his straight forward attitude and how he put Caroline in her place when needed. I enjoy watching their chemistry and loved how they responded to each other. He was stubborn and didn't make things easy for her and I liked that. A girl needs a challenge every now and then. And he was just the right guy to do it for Caroline. Even I developed a crush on Reed. He's now my new book boyfriend.
Caroline is a sweet girl. But she has a past that doesn't let her love easily. Her past is very sad which is why she thinks before she loves. Or she thinks before she do anything that would hinder her from having a good outcome for her future. So she thinks about how her life would be if she falls in love with Reed. But as much as she wants a secure future, she can't help what she feels. Their chemistry is undeniable and their naughty scenes together are caliente!! I love how Denise wrote their scenes together. It just has so much depth.
I'm absolutely love this book and as always I can't see her outdoing herself again in her next one. I can not wait to read her next book in series "Business As Usual". I think this book may be about Reed's sister Lexi, but I can be wrong. There isn't a blurb on it yet. I give Redesigned a 5/5 stars and a Good Choice for Reading!!
