From the New York Times Bestselling authors of Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel.
It started out like any other morning on the train.
Until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle.
He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world.
Who did the stuck-up suit think he was…God?
Actually, he looked like a God. That was about it.
When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out.
I might have picked it up.
I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers.
I might have held onto the mystery man’s phone for days—until I finally conjured up the courage to return it.
When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me.
So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk’s office.
I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first though.
I didn’t expect him to text back.
I didn’t expect our exchanges to be hot as hell.
I didn’t expect to fall for him—all before we even met.
The two of us couldn’t have been any more different.
Yet, you know what they say about opposites.
When we finally came face to face, we found out opposites sometimes do more than attract—we consumed each other.
Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for where I’d wind up when the ride was over.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.
To me, this book epitomizes "contemporary romance." It's filled with real-life, realistic, situations and encompass many things that "Average Joeline Reader" can relate to.
I must admit, though, that I wasn't sure if I would like this book at the start. The first half-ish seemed almost too sweet, too perfect. I was thinking that maybe this powerhouse writing team was trying something new and deviating from their norm. Boy, was I wrong! Talk about plot twists and turns!
True to form, Vi and Penelope made this an exceptional book that had me shouting (literally, shouting) "WHAT THE F IS HE THINKING?!" and "OH MY GOSH, HE'S ADORABLE!"
It was SO easy for me to empathize with Soraya and Graham thanks to the exceptional writing of the authors and their varying points of view. I found myself elated at the beginning and close to tears near the end.
All in all, an emotionally awesome romance that also beautifully incorporated an Australian man walking a goat. (Now THAT takes talent!)
***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***
Great story! Love the banter between the main love interests. I thought there was going to be a deeper angst, but there wasn't and I'm glad it didn't go that route! It was pretty funny, and was glad to see an appearance of another cocky character! Quick easy read!
Words cannot describe! Mr. Stuck Up Suit had my brain doing somersaults from the time he opened his mouth. Him and Saraya were riveting. There hot, sexy banter never let up. Their text were amusing, and I couldn't wait to read each persons response, and the advice column was a hoot.
Watching him deal with his personnel issues at work, to becoming a Graham Cracker, had me in stitches.
Graham tugged at my heartstrings seeing him display his gentle side. I melted.
The authors were very clever! Lots of surprises along the way. As I read, I kept wondering when the next one might come along. I laughed out loud, VERY loud, at the final clever surprise.
These two were sexy, funny, fun, and witty. It was a great book.
