Peek Inside Ivy Entwined

Marcus Weaver unwillingly spent his teens in Celebration, NY with his vindictive, drunken uncle. As far as Marcus is concerned, the town’s only use is to cement his rise up the corporate ladder. He needs his Megamart opened, and Ivy Callahan is his ticket. But the sexy, stubborn mayor could also be his downfall. With a fresh downtown-renewal project in the works, Ivy plans to stop Marcus and his Megamart before they kill the town’s spirit. But with sparks flying between Ivy and Marcus, they each need to decide what’s more important: their careers or their hearts.

I don't read a lot of contemporary romance, but I am very glad I got the ARC of Ivy Entwined!
