Genre: Contemporary Romance
Heat Rating: Hot
I learned about this series when I discovered that Worth the Scandal was a free eBook on Amazon. Although Alex and Tess weren’t my favourite characters to read about, I was hooked into the series.
The series follows the three Worth brothers who run a fashion empire. Each is unique in their own way and this is reflected into their stories. There are a ton of little twists along the way in each of the books that make you turn the pages.
Worth the Scandal and Worth the Risk were more suspenseful plot wise. Worth the Challenge isn’t as suspenseful but it has a lot of drama and what I consider the best romance of the 4 books. It is by far my favourite book of the series. Worth Everything was a solid part of the series, not the greatest but it sets up nicely for the spin-off series and has a cute romance.
If you like contemporary romances with millionaire businessmen, business-savvy women and lots of heat, then you will love this series.

Synopsis for Worth the Scandal (from Goodreads):
Alexander Worth, President and CEO of Worth Luxury Goods, is a man never to be crossed. His unwavering sense of responsibility to the family business requires him to always be in complete and utter control. Until it comes to Tessa Crawford.
She’s quietly professional, shy, voluptuous…and she works for him. Which means she is the one woman he must never touch, no matter how hard his gut twists with need for her.
After rising above her disadvantaged childhood, Tessa knows the last thing she should do is risk throwing it all away by falling into bed with her sexy boss. But on an extended European business trip, all self-imposed barriers burn away in the heat of their sizzling chemistry.
Once back home, though, whispers of corporate espionage turn into full-blown scandal-and Tessa finds out the hard way where Alex’s loyalties lie. Determined to soldier on, she picks herself up and carries on with a secret, yet welcomed burden. Never guessing that Alex will make a reappearance in her life, ready to show her once and for all that family does, indeed, come first.
Warning: Contains a sweet-yet-strong woman, and a bossy alpha male brought to his knees by the woman he desperately loves. Involves enough begging and groveling that the reader may be tempted to “accidentally” leave it for her significant other to “find.” For instructional purposes only, of course.
