In Tangling with the London Tycoon (Brick Square #1) by Suzi Jennings, Kitty Mayfair is desperate to secure the contract of being the photographer at the wedding of London's publishing tycoon Rosco Redmond's sister. Desperate to hide the secrets of her past, she never expected to be followed just about everywhere she went by paparazzi determined to discover who she is to Rosco. Can she and Rosco find a way to be together without their pasts interfering and ruining any chance they have at happy ever after?
What a captivatingly fun, fast-paced read this first book in Ms. Jennings Brick Square series was, which provided plenty of emotion due to the main characters back stories and had me smiling due to the heroine's feisty and flirty attitude that gets the hero to unwind and let his guard down. The way this story started with the heroine going after what she wants had me hooked to this story immediately to see if the hero would give her a chance, even though he believes she's brought trouble right to his doorstep. Will they be able to deceive those that want to know who she is? What will happen when someone uncovers her past?
The dialogue was well-written, a nice combination of intense and playful that made me laugh and had me wanting to cry at times. Neither Rosco or Kitty had it easy growing up with her mom and his dad caring more about themselves than their kids. They had to grow up quickly and then learn to cope with the pain of losing their loved ones, which makes it understandable why neither want anything to do with relationships when all they've witnessed is how relationships can cause so much pain and heartache. However, I liked how the playful banter between the hero and heroine balanced out the sadness of their back stories, especially when Kitty saves Rosco from both his aunts matchmaking.
Strong chemistry made this story a worthwhile read, although the romance doesn't go into a lot of descriptive detail. Still, I loved every moment that Rosco and Kitty interacted and couldn't wait to discover what would happen at the critical moment in the story where their relationship fell apart? Would Kitty be able to cope with the outcome, because it was palpable that whatever happened was going to have more of an effect on her than Rosco. As for the hero, he's confident and a little bit of a control freak, yet the latter was a trait I loved in him. It showed he was protective of his family, and wasn't about to let anything ruin his sister's wedding. While the heroine, she was a wonderful character. She's good for the hero in the way she gets him to step out of his comfort zone and have a little fun; something -- it seems -- he isn't all that used to. Also, she's strong, brave and I liked how determined she is to show Rosco she's good at her job.
Overall, Ms. Jennings has penned a delightful read in this book where the secondary characters give great advice and aren't afraid to show they care through their actions whether they're matchmaking or acting in the best interests of the hero or heroine. The way this story ended was perfect, as Rosco really proves to Kitty how much he loves her by what he does both personally and professionally. I would recommend Tangling with the London Tycoon by Suzi Jennings, if you enjoy the fake relationship trope or the matchmaker trope.
London publishing tycoon Rosco Redmond closely guards his family, his business, and his privacy. When his sister’s wedding brings the paparazzi baying at his door, wedding photographer Kitty Mayfair unwittingly becomes his decoy girlfriend. But the mysterious Kitty has secrets of her own.
Despite the sexy hint of an appealing Irish brogue, Kitty’s new boss is bent on micromanaging his sister’s wedding and the crazy fake relationship she’s been dragged into. The only thing they seem to have in common, is that neither of them believes in happy-ever-afters. But the more time Kitty spends with the tycoon, the more she begins to suspect there’s a lot of fire beneath his cool facade.

With the past complicating their present, and the zoom lenses of photographers everywhere they go, the commitment phobic control freak and the globe-trotting free spirit clash and ignite.

Rosco Redmond was an opportunity Kitty couldn’t afford to mess up.
The door to his Georgian town house lacked any attempt at welcome. It faced the world with immaculate London style—glossy black paint against warm cream stone—handsome but unadorned.
The peaceful, exclusive inner city cobblestone street oozed understated elegance. Its sweep of heritage buildings an oasis of secluded tranquility, just a few blocks away from London’s hectic commercial center.
But it had Kitty’s heartbeat thundering in her ears as unwanted memories flooded her in a cold tide of rejection. Memories of the miserable childhood she’d purged from her adult life.
It was the worst coincidence that the Redmond house looked an awful lot like her childhood home and represented the kind of world Kitty never wanted to be part of again.
The unexpected shock had all her buried insecurities nibbling at her confidence.
But she’d never walked away from a challenge since she was sixteen, when her mother died and left her alone. A time of shame, of dark and painful memories usually left undisturbed and firmly in the past where they belonged.
Shaking them off now, she faced the house squarely, rocking discreetly from foot to foot to ease the ache of her highest heeled boots. She’d chosen them for courage, so she didn’t mind the pain.
Straightening her back, she commanded her nerves to focus and smiled as her fingers caressed the worn strap of the camera hung around her neck.
She could do this job.
Plucked at short notice from the lowest ranks of LJ Redmond Publishing’s contracted photographers for this urgent assignment, she couldn’t believe her luck. It was a matter of timing, the human resources department had informed her, because all of Mr. Redmond’s senior photographers were unavailable at this time.
She would do whatever was required, as her financial security depended on nailing this project—whatever it turned out to be—and taking her best photos ever.
Kitty took one last look at the imposing three-story building, sucked in a deep breath, and bounded up the four steps to the porch. She found the discreetly recessed doorbell and pressed it for a long, determined ring.
Hoisting her camera bag onto her hip, she took another steadying breath as the sound of security locks opening reminded her this was serious business.
Then Rosco Redmond, CEO of his family’s Investment and Publishing Groups, stood in the doorway. She’d expected a butler in coattails or a housekeeper to answer the door.
The man himself was tall, lean, and gorgeous. Tailored for business in an impeccable dark suit and blood-red tie.
