Blog Tour: Review of Side Effects by LJ Greene

Side Effects

Publication date: December 13th 2021
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Who can you trust?

Ally Michels is fresh out of her MBA program at Cal and has landed her dream job at hot, up-and-coming video game developer, Jet Stream Studios, all thanks to her uncle, Jet’s largest venture capital investor. She’s feeling pretty good about her future until an inadvertent blurt in a company meeting brings down upon her the dangerous attention of Jet’s co-founder and chief developer, Marcus Abby.

Beautiful, brilliant, and vicious, Marcus is every bit the arrogant, deceitful founder her uncle warned her about. But in the power-fueled world of venture capital investing, things aren’t always what they seem. When Ally finds herself caught up in a play for corporate control, she must work with Marcus to save the company and an ideal she believes in, while navigating perilous family loyalties and fighting to hold onto her own integrity.

For Ally, there’s just one rule: never, ever trust Marcus Abby. Because the one man she needs to stop a high-stakes plot is the one man who has every reason to want her gone.

SIDE EFFECTS is an adult contemporary, twisty, underhanded, certainly unscrupulous . . . romance.

My thoughts:

Side Effects is the fourth book in the Ripple Effects series.  For the most part, it can be read as a stand alone.  I think had I read the first few books, I would have understood some of the backstory of Marcus a bit more.  This is a slow burn enemies to lovers.  I liked that it was a slow burn because it made their reversal of dislike more believable.  I liked that Ally and Marcus became friends first.  Their first kiss scene was adorable and so sweet.  I really liked the romance part of the book.  I'm not a business person, so I was a bit lost on the corporate takeover portion of the story. But the romance more than made up for it.  My biggest issue with the book is the cover.  It really doesn't fit the book.  But, that is just a personal preference thing.  The epilogue intrigued me enough to eventually go back and read the first three books.  I do recommend this one.
