Revisited:: Breaking up with Barrett by Katy Regnery

So this lovely one went on sale with a box set a few weeks ago and after sharing with my Sister In Law that this was a great series and the brothers are a good family to read about, I decided to re read. So I revisited with Barrett and Emily. How a boy at 8 years old fell in love with the gardeners daughter and didn't even realize it until he is over 30 years old. These two pulled at my heart strings, Barrett's cold and shark like heart blooming right in front of me. To read about an all business man suddenly interested in watching the stars. His brothers are within the story and you can see the bond of their relationships with advise and support. I had wanted to go through the whole series however other authors and other series were published so I will return to read Fitz's story later. 

Breaking Up with Barrett is the first of six books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome English brothers who are all on the look-out for love.

(Except Alex. He's a womanizing manwhore. And maybe Stratton, because he's wicked hot, but super awkward around girls.)

Barrett English, aka "the Shark," is the fair-haired, first-born of the English brothers, and the CEO of the oldest, most prestigious investment banking firm in Philadelphia. He rules the boardroom with an iron fist, refusing to take no for an answer and always getting his way.

Emily Edwards, a first-year doctoral student at the University of Pennsylvania, grew up in the gatehouse on the outskirts of Barrett's childhood estate. The daughter of his family's gardener and housekeeper, she was always looking through the window of privilege, but forced to remember her place at the very periphery of the kingdom.

When business partners suggest that a fiancee might soften Barrett's image over business dinners, he approaches Emily for the "job" of fiancee. And while love wasn't necessarily on Barrett's radar, he begins to realize that Emily always has been. But will his take-no-prisoners boardroom tactics work on the heart of the woman he loves?
