Business and Pleasure & The Best of Both Worlds 18+

Business and Pleasure (Rags and Riches Series, #1)
Can mixing business and pleasure ever result in a happy ending?
When sexy, rich Lawrence Russo asks Mia to come and work for him in Italy for two weeks, she jumps at the chance. After all, it beats pole dancing, and the salary he offers her is practically obscene.
A relationship quickly begins to develop between the two, but Mia can't help but wonder if Lawrence's feelings for her are genuine or if he feels he's just paying for a service.
Even if their relationship is strong enough to survive her insecurities, what will happen when somebody from her past shows up and threatens to reveal her deepest, darkest secret?

Super short read.
Mia is a stripper and has a favourite customer. When instead of showing interest, offers her a job in Italy for two weeks, she is unsure of what will be required of her.
Is she a convenient escort? Despite her insecurities a relationship of sorts starts.
I think this book was a little too short for me. Not enough time elapsed for me to get the flow for the relationship, characters or was quite rushed. I did like the idea of the story, very pretty woman, and that is always good. I just think this needed more story injected into it. The explicit sex was also not as steamy as I was anticipating, maybe I am just getting jaded after all the sexy books I read :( Also editing wise, there were missing words, usually I am not a stickler for that sort of thing, but it happened a few times.
Unfortunately this one just didn't quite meet my needs this time, but I do believe this mostly has to do with the length of the book.

 A choice between two men? If only it were that simple. Melissa Morgan seems to have it all…her modeling career is taking off and she's engaged to one of the most eligible bachelors in London. But when she finds Jonathan cheating on her again, Melissa finds solace in the arms of Riley, a sexy bar owner trying to recover from the heartbreak of his last relationship. Melissa shouldn't even want Riley, but she can't seem to stay away, especially when she finds in him everything that's missing in her relationship with Jonathan. Melissa knows she has to make a hard choice, and when it comes to choosing between the life she's always wanted and the man she's falling in love with, she might find out that she can't have the best of both worlds.

Melissa has a cheating alcoholic fiancé. He swore things would change when they got engaged...but they have not. Unfortunately he keeps her in a life that suits her, being a very wealthy man. After cheating on her again Melissa decides what's good for the goose is good for the gander and has a one night stand with a delicious bar owner. What she doesn't bargain on is falling for Riley. Now she has to choose between her heart and her envisioned life.
This book is super short at about 70ish pages. The problem with stories of this length is that it is incredibly hard to develop a character like Melissa and make your readers believe that she is redeemable, because you have so little time to do it in. Unfortunately that is what happened here for me. Everything was so rushed that all I could see was Melissa and her selfish choices and I just couldn't understand her, nor did I want to . I think this story could be a good one and you could get Melissa to that stage if the book was fleshed out more. As it is I was just grasping at straws. With a little more editing and a more time spent on the background story this one could be a winner.
