Review: Conflict Of Interest By Allyson Lindt
I really enjoy Allyson's stories. Although, this one I did not like the main character, Kenzie. In Conflict of Interest, Kenzie is a all out career woman, who lives for her job. She is single, lives alone, and rarely goes out. When her sister moves in, the claws come out and Kenzie is told she is frigid and needs to get out more. From there, Kenzie decides to see if she can pick up a man and pretty much use him for sex. That is where Scott comes in, sigh, love him. Scott happens to be at the right place, wrong time, or maybe wrong place, right time. Anyway, Kenzie decides he will be her victim and the story goes from there. Both characters have issues with things in their past and family issues. The story writing is great and keeps you engaged, a real page turner. I loved Scott, he was genuine and entertaining to read about. Kenzie just rubbed me the wrong way, she was so hurtful and selfish. Their story was was what kept me reading. Even though I didn't like Kenzie, I would still recommend this book because the author was able to keep me intrigued and going with the story despite the characters. I look forward to more from Allyson :)

Kenzie propositions a sexy stranger in a coffee shop to prove to herself she’s capable of taking a risk. She doesn’t expect him to be sitting across from her the following Monday as her newest client. Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about what might have happened between them on a personal level if it weren’t for their professional relationship. He knows how to push her buttons, and she doesn’t want him to stop.
Scott has built his software company from the ground up to escape things like stuffy old men telling him how to behave, so he loathes his board of directors ordering him to make the public forget he doesn’t have a verbal filter. When his new publicity manager is the almost-fling he never expected to see again, he seizes the opportunity to have fun and still pretend he’s complying with the board’s edict.
Giving in to desire could mean both their jobs, but each “one last time” always leads to another. Now they have to decide what they’re willing to sacrifice to indulge this conflict of interest.
