The first in a brand new contemporary romance series starring the men and women who are determined to keep the billion-dollar denim dynasty, Riley O’Brien & Co, on top, but aren’t about to let success stand in the way of love…
It’s up to one man to figure out what women want…
Amelia Winger is a small-town girl with big dreams of becoming a successful designer. So when she gets a gig designing accessories for denim empire Riley O’Brien & Co., it’s a dream come true. Amelia can handle the demanding job, but she isn’t quite prepared for sexy CEO Quinn O’Brien. She’s doing her best to keep things professional, but the attraction sparking between them makes it personal. And so does the secret project she’s working on behind his back…
Quinn’s not interested in the new accessories, but he is interested in the woman designing them. Amelia is smart, sexy, and talented, and he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about her since they met. Mixing business and pleasure isn’t wise, but that doesn’t stop him from coming up with excuses to spend time with her. He thinks he understands the risk he’s taking when he gets involved with Amelia. But he doesn’t know he’s risking a lot more than his heart.
Jenna Sutton spent most of her career as an award-winning journalist covering business-related topics including healthcare, commercial real estate, retail, and technology. Nowadays she writes about hot, lovable guys and the smart, sexy women who make them crazy. It’s the culmination of a lifelong dream, and she feels so lucky to be able to do it.
Jenna has a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from Texas Christian University and a Master’s degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from Northwestern University.
Jenna and her husband live in a 103-year-old house in Texas.
From All The Right Places by Jenna Sutton:
Quinn stared into Amelia’s dark eyes. The phrase “fall in and out of love” echoed in his head, and he felt strangely innervated.
With her encouraging words, she had freed him from the horrible despair that had choked him for the past several hours. His black mood was gone.
But now there was something even more dangerous in its place: desire.
Her hand was still on his, and he swore he could feel the heat of her touch radiating throughout his entire body. He took a deep breath, battling the urge to move closer to her.
He pulled his eyes from hers, and his gaze dropped to the pale skin exposed by the V-neck of her dress. She wore a silver necklace with translucent green and blue beads, and one of them had found its way into her creamy cleavage. As he stared at that lucky bead, his blood grew hotter, running thickly through his veins toward his cock.
His brain and his body disconnected, and he saw his hand move toward her, fingers spread.
Don’t do it! Don’t touch her!
His fingers stroked the warm skin of her throat, her pulse throbbing against his thumb. Her skin was so soft, so warm, he imagined she could heat all the cold places inside him.
Wrapping his hand around the back of her neck, he pulled her closer. She stumbled a little in her high-heeled boots, and he steadied her with a hand on her hip.
When he felt that beautiful curve within his grasp, the blood drained from his head, along with every bit of sense he possessed. With his intellect obliterated, his primal self was in control, and it wanted more.
* Arc provided by Publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review *
I love Quinn O’Brien! And I love the overall setup of this book. It’s so well-written and the characters immediately jump out and grab you, drawing you into their story, into their world. This book has great flow and excellent writing.
All the Right Places is a fast-paced and dynamic read. Since I hadn’t read Jenna Sutton’s work before, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but I loved every single word of this book, and everything about the main characters, Quinn and Amelia.
Right from the start, there is an underlying chemistry and a sense of anticipation to Quinn and Amelia’s first meeting, but even as you know there is an attraction between them, their interaction still has a kind of subtlety about it that pulls you along the current with them. Everything feels very natural between the characters, and the book has a very real world feel that I found particularly endearing. These are people and a world that no doubt exist in real life, and I loved that about this book. Even the business part of this book felt real and natural. There is an honesty to this book that just swept me up and made me fall in love. Everything moves at the exact pace it is supposed to do, so nothing feels forced, but instead very much a natural progression for the characters and the story. Which made this book such a fun and refreshing read for me. I absolutely loved it.
If you haven’t read All the Right Places yet, I highly recommend doing so. Jenna Sutton has a way with words and a gift for characterization that made this a must read, can’t put down book. I loved it so much, and I already know without a doubt that I will be buying the second book when its out in December. In fact, I can’t wait!

Love can take some time to break in…
Teagan O’Brien, heiress to the Riley O’Brien & Co. denim empire, is anything but a spoiled rich girl. She’s worked hard to secure her place in the family business and can hold her own, in and out of the office. Only one man has ever been able to get under her skin—sexy football star Nick Priest. Years ago they crossed the line from friends to lovers, but he left her heartbroken. Since then, she’s been determined to keep him at arm’s length—no matter how tempting he looks in his jeans…
Nick has fortune, fame, and looks that make most women hot and bothered. But he doesn’t have the woman he really wants. He knows he screwed up when he walked away from Teagan, and now that he has a second chance, he’ll do whatever it takes to win her over—no matter how tongue-tied he gets…
