“He’s burning me down to the bone. They’ll find the scar of him on my remains.”
In this village, I’m an outcast: Griffin Everett, the scowling giant who prefers plants to people. Then I meet Keynes, a stranger from the city who’s everything I’m not: sharp-tongued, sophisticated, beautiful. Free. For a few precious moments in a dark alleyway, he’s also mine, hot and sweet under the stars… until he crushes me like dirt beneath his designer boot.
When the prettiest man I’ve ever hated shows up at my job the next day, I’m not sure if I want to strangle him or drag him into bed. Actually—I think I want both. But Keynes isn’t here for the likes of me: he makes that painfully clear. With everyone else at work, he’s all gorgeous, glittering charm, but when I get too close? He turns vicious.
And yet, I can’t stay away. Because there’s something about this ice king that sets me on fire, a secret vulnerability that makes my chest ache. I’ll do whatever it takes to sneak past his walls and see the real man again.
The last thing I expect is for that man to ruin me.
I’m the village outcast, the scowling giant who prefers plants to people. He’s a stranger from the city, and the prettiest man I’ve ever hated. Wanting him is painful; being without him is impossible. This ice king’s burning me down to the bone.
This book contains mentions of depression, parental suicide, and intimate photographs being shared without consent, which could trigger certain audiences.
This sounds a little complicated, so…. deep breath!
Work for It is a standalone romance. However, the story stars Olumide Olusegun-Keynes, who first appears in the Just for Him series – most notably book two, Undone by the Ex-Con. In Undone, the heroine is Keynes’s sister Lizzie, and her journey is driven by the need to protect her brother. So, in short, I would call this a spin-off. Those who’ve read the Just for Him books will enjoy the recurring characters; those who haven’t, aren’t missing anything.
