Falling for the enemy was never in the plan.

To save her family’s business, fledging CEO Daisy Cater must win the bid on a resort on St. Maarten. There’s a small catch, though. The seller insists all bidders visit the island and experience the singles retreat firsthand. This wouldn’t be so bad…if only rule-maker Daisy weren’t paired with her bitter rival, the hot and broody Alexander Gillard. Keeping her enemy close just became a whole lot harder.

Alexander “Zan” Gillard didn't expect to be partnered with gorgeous Daisy at the idyllic singles retreat. A challenge that has them cuffed together ignites an explosive chemistry, and soon Zan wants more than four days with this bewitching woman who is nothing like he expected her to be.

But their families are at odds and reality awaits them at home, along with a betrayal that threatens to blow their newfound trust apart...

Praise

“Loved it! There was drama, passion, deceit, humour, family rivalry, and hot chemistry between the two main characters. I laughed, blushed, shook my head at times, and could not stop reading. If you’re looking for a funny, steamy, enemies to lovers story I suggest you go grab a copy of Taming the Ceo!” –Shalyn W., NetGalley

“I really enjoyed this book. I cried, laugh and had some no he didn't moments. I really got caught up in the story as if it were a movie. If I put down the book, it would be like closing my eyes and missing something. I fell in love with the characters!” –Patty W., Goodreads

“This enemies to  lovers romance  was sexy , swoon worthy, fun, heart warming ... ahhh I could  just go on  and on  about  how  much  I enjoyed this  story!” –JoDeen, JoJo the Bookaholic

The chemistry between these two is explosive and highly entertaining!” –Brandi M., NetGalley

“This book is at times sweet, at times spicy, while ranging from extreme emotional highs to extreme emotional lows. While knowing we could count on a HEA, the author told the story is such a way that I felt invested in the characters and cared about their story, while weaving it in such a way that I couldn't see how she was going to bring it about. Fans of the genre will love this book. I've added the author to my must read authors' list!” –Linda Q., Goodreads

“OMG what a cracker of a story this one is I couldn’t put it down between cheering Daisy on and wanting to hit Zan at times this one had me turning the pages and forgetting about life altogether as these two journey on a very sexy and steamy romp to one hell of a game of twister and a beautiful HEA!” –Helen S., NetGalley

“This is an awesome fun, sexy read that shouldn't be missed.  The characters are great, the situation hilarious, and the chemistry off the charts!” –Bette H., NetGalley

A wonderful romance about enemies to lovers that I truly enjoyed reading and one that I would definitely recommend!” –Diane, Star Angels Reviews

Romeo and Juliet got some stiff competition from Daisy and Zan. Feuding families, business rivals and a match that no one saw coming. Taming the CEO takes it's cues from a classic but decided to lighten the mood. Hayson Manning didn't sugarcoat the odds but spiced up the attraction. Quick, enjoyable tale!” –Isha C., NetGalley

About the author

Hayson Manning

I love Princess Bride, Young and the Restless, Days of our Lives – the drama is deliciously addictive. Big Bang Theory but will take Wolowitz over Cooper. Star Trek not Star Wars. Undercover Boss, Secret Millionaire – any story that shows the little guy making it. I follow the Buffalo Bills like a religion. I am spellbound by showjumping and equestrian eventing. I love curling up and reading all books – no genre is off-topic. I like ironing, I hate peas, love donkeys, I play a killer game of Scrabble. I will often be heading towards the fridge for another Diet Coke. I eat nothing with legs and believe wine goes with everything, oh and I’m an expert at finding new and inventive ways to avoid exercise. I live in the sparkly beach side suburb of Redondo Beach in California with my infuriating shoe-dropping husband and my two boys who speak in mystifying grunts.
