I enjoyed this book very entertaining. The heroine is feisty and doesn’t suffer fools. I love the protective streak she has for her children and those she holds dear. Cara Addison is a new author to me but she is awesome writer.

Cara Addison has become one of my favorite authors. Her stories are always fresh, different, and an experience to read. Ms. Addison’s stories are always well crafted and the sexual tension smoldering and hot. This book weaves the best of these and adds in intrigue and suspense creating a very enjoyable reading experience.
Love or Money is vastly different from anything I have read by this author or by anyone else.
The story revolves around Morgan Gibson: wife, mother, and business woman. Morgan’s husband is, plain and simply, an ass. Working a dead end job, he allows Morgan to give their twins not only the material things her career can buy, but also the only parental support they receive. In a loveless marriage, Morgan is unprepared for an unexpected windfall and the new life it provides. Her change in circumstances allows her to dump her crappy ex and lead a life where she can seek out the love and intimacy her life has been missing.
Morgan is a very supportive mother to her teenage twins, following their activities and being actively involved. So every move she makes after the big change in her life has her children’s best interests at heart. There are several twists and turns in this book and truly it is not only a journey of self-discovery for Morgan, but it is also a tale of two loves. While I enjoyed the part of the book about her relationship with a younger man, when she met Erik I was elated. The connections she felt with both men felt real and dynamic and I rooted for both men. However, doubt crept into my mind with both of them and until the very end I was in suspense over the outcome. As always with the ending comes a surprise, leaving the reader hopeful for the future and satisfied with their reading experience.
