I'm gonna flash you these legs, Weston Conrad. I'm gonna wear low-cut shirts and micro-mini skirts. I'm gonna dazzle you with wit and conversation and kiss those lips like they're exactly what I've been waiting for.
So don't hate me when you figure out my secret. You understand, right? You're Mr. Corporate, and this is just business.

Love the series - HATE this book
Ohhh my. Could the main female character be any more of an annoying, whiny, female dog, horrible and unlikeable character?! Don’t really know what West liked about her - other than his kink obviously being for a damsel who slaps him around and plays hard to get. Really struggled to finish this book. Reallllllly struggled. Only because I like the series did I keep going.
In addition, the whole story was based on people having secrets and going round in circles and not talking. Not so much plot, but repetitive arguments about the same old stuff. I think it was supposed to build up intrigue and mystery but it just fell so far from that mark. When you break down what ACTUALLY happened in the story, the conclusion is - not a lot. I could summarise it in a few sentences no problem, but then this review would be a spoiler. I know the point of the series is for the tangled web of lies and events to gradually be revealed but this book was an EPIC fail.
Plus, why you would think marriage is a good idea when you’ve never even talked about yourself to your intended, I do not know. Obviously I have higher expectations about what marriage is about.
Narration was good. Abby Craden was cast perfectly to capture the utter idiot that was Victoria.
Eughhh. Now I’ve got to get over my book grump and try and choose another book to listen to. Feel like it’s a nest of vipers and any of them might be awful despite high ratings. How has this book got 4.5/5 when it’s so rubbish?!?! How can I trust any other ratings for other books? I’m hoping the rest of the series will be ok because I like JA Huss, and the other books won’t be about Victoria - already, that’s a major plus. Still going to wait a while before getting Mr Mysterious because I need to get over my book-hate first.

The series gets better and better with each book.
I am a fan of the Mister Series, and now that I'm listening to the books the stories and characters are more appealing to me. The series is about five men who, as college students, are accused of a crime they didn't commit. All five men are hot, successful, and have secrets that unfold a little with each new story.
Mr. Corporate is the most "edge of the seat" mystery to me so far. There is the major story arc through the series regarding what happened in college and why. Who is behind the accusations and why do they want to hurt these particular men? There is also the second chance romance between Weston Conrad and Victoria Arias.
Weston and Victoria (Tori) are on again, off-again lovers since college. When the relationship is good, it is on fire and works for both West and Tori. However, Tori takes offense to everything West says and does romantically causing problems.
Tori is a major witch with a "B" in the beginning. What I like is that as the story moves and the characters develop we learn some of Tori's secrets. These revelations soften the readers' judgment regarding her actions.
The narrators did a fantastic job bringing this story to life. I enjoy the way Abby Craden has the tone of a "Queen B" in the beginning then as the story unfolds, she softens, and we feel Victoria's love for West.
Ryan West does an excellent job narrating Weston Conran's point of view. His contradiction of strength and weaknesses come through his voice and give me a complete picture of the character. I love how Ryan conveys Weston's inner conflict regarding Victoria. Weston knows that Victoria is the woman for him but also faces the fact that their union may never happen.
The narrators gave me new insight into this couples' story, and, while I like the book when I initially read it, the audio gives me the opportunity to see the events from a different perspective. The mystery and the secrets these friends hold are cause for more anxiety. Also, this time listening to the story, I feel more fear for the group, not just this couple.
I can't wait for Mr. Mysterious. Great job!

3.5 Mr. Corporate Stars
I loved book 1 & 2, but for me book 3 was good but it didn’t really get interesting for me until the last 6 chapters.
It’s not like I didn’t like it it’s a good book just didn’t like it as much as the other books, still worth the read hells ya it is. It brings all the Misters together and you get more of the story for sure.
“Why are we so hot and cold> Why are we so on and off? So all or nothing? Friends or enemies?” – Victoria
These two keep dancing around each other they are together or they aren’t and when they have to spend time together, trying to win over a job that could save her from the downfall of her company.
So they are both fighting for the positions. Only they end up fighting for more than just a job, but for their lives, and love if it can be salvaged.
More of there all of their back stories come out, and you will be shocked at what you learn.
So again I said I like the book by no means is it bad, it just wasn’t as good in my eyes as book 1 & 2. I am very much looking forward to book 4 :)
*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*
