I first met William McAlister when I was just a teenager.
He was handsome, had a beautiful wife and was on the verge of success, having just joined my father as his business partner. Mr. McAlister was full of smooth charm, but back then he was barely a blip on my radar. Just a family friend.
Fast forward ten years: I’m 25 years old and a single mom trying to make things right for her seven-year old son. I’ve made some mistakes, grappled with my demons and now I’m back in the city of Vancouver, getting a second chance at a better life.
I’ve started by working for my father’s production company as an executive assistant. My first day on the job and I already know I could have a promising career there.
That is until I see Will McAlister for the first time in a decade.
Now recently divorced and as sophisticated as always, Will has gone from being my father’s friend and business partner to something so much more.
We’re both older, for one thing, and he just oozes this worldly confidence and stark sexuality. Combined with his tall, muscular build and sharp suits, strong jaw and bedroom eyes, Will has turned into one hell of a distraction.
A distraction I’m having a hard time staying away from, considering his office is right across from my desk and I work with him in such close proximity.
But it’s just a harmless crush, right?
It’s just an innocent fantasy of screwing him on his desk, right?
It can’t ever be more because he’s my father’s best friend, business partner, and my boss.
I enjoyed it from the first sentence to the last.
The main characters in this book are both looking for a fresh start. Will is recently divorced and events have led Jackie to become a single mom. They both have ties to Vancouver and find themselves there in hope of healing and second chances at life. Will is Jackie's dad's younger business partner. He had been running the LA office. Now that he is back, he finds himself in need of executive assistant. Jackie's dad hires her to be his assistant. Jackie and Will haven't seen each other in years. On Jackie's first day, Will finds himself in shock that Jackie isn't that young girl that he once knew.
Will is so dreamy and swoon worthy. He may be a little older, but he is a fit gentleman with a thick head of hair and a tendency to not wear underwear. Seeing Will interact with Jackie's son makes him that much more lovable. Jackie is a young, single mom that just wants to prove herself to the world. Her main worry is making a better life for her son. She is so real and relatable. I love her girlfriends at the office. They make me laugh and wish I had them at my work.
Karina Halle does it again. This book is so good!!! I loved reading Will and Jackie's story. It was sweet, sexy, and breathtaking. I enjoyed it from the first sentence to the last. Before I Ever Met You is one of those books you just know is going to be amazing from just reading the prologue. I hope you snap it up and enjoy it was much as I did.
Makes you believe in love 🔥
Once again Karina Halle delivers a wonderful book📖. I love Will and Jackie (where this a Will there is a way & Just Jackie). Will is amazing male character, he is a sexy gentleman, he is bossy (alpha) and most importantly in spite of trials and tribulations in his life, he meets Jackie... As the heroine, Jackie doesn't disappoint, she needs to be loved whether she knows it or not. If you haven't read any of Karina Halle's awesome books this is the perfect book to start with, it's standalone. Before I Ever Met You will become the book you read again whenever you're in a book slump. It has everything from beginning to end.
A classic romance
This is a beautiful romance that you will easily get swept away in the story of these two wonderful characters. Oh will, Will make you swoon! The ending will leave you with a feel good smile.
