Getting fired and humiliated in front of everyone at my newly acquired secretarial job at Morgan Financial Holdings wasn’t how I’d seen my day going. And then chaos—or maybe luck—ensued. I was set up on a blind date, shocked that my former boss was giving me a month’s severance, and had the perfect interview lined up Maybe things were looking up for me after all. And although finding a man should have been on the bottom of my to-do list, I couldn’t get Jason—the uber-sexy blind date—out of my head. Sexy and confident—or maybe arrogant—he had me yearning for more with just a smoldering look and a smirk of his lips. But when a night of drinking led to getting in bed with him and having the wildest, most intense night of my life, I didn’t know if I should ask to see him again or do the good old walk of shame. And it was when I walked into my interview the next day and came face-to-face with my prospective employer that the reality of my situation sank in. Because there, sitting across from me with that devilish smile on his face, that knowing expression of what we’d done the night before, was the one and only Jason, my supposed one-night stand. Looked like my humiliation wasn’t over just yet.

Lies. Deceit. Espionage. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg here in DC. My boyfriend is fake engaged, I’m pretty sure someone out there is trying to kill me, and now a sexy-as-sin attorney from the Justice Department is investigating me and I have zero clue as to why. Torn between duty and love, I’m not just floundering in my role as VP, I’m drowning. When the pieces of the president’s plan come to light, I know I have to stop him. Permanently this time. How I’ll get out of this alive, I have no idea, but at least I still have my favorite secret service agent, Trey Benson, by my side—for now. I’ll do whatever it takes to remove Kyle from office, even if it means sacrificing everything I love. Again.
Power Switch is the third book in the five-book Power Play series and is a continuation of Randi and Trey’s epic love story. The books in this series cannot be read as standalones. All five books follow one main couple’s relationship as it grows through a five-year time period. It’s suspenseful, steamy, and oh so unputdownable.

Not my first read by the author, she is one of my favorites and I also have read Book 1 & 2 out of the 5 series books!
You will get a strong doze of Jessica in this one and I pray that she “accidentally” gets killed off! Anyways, thus far (and since this is book 3 and I hope no one is reading in the middle of a full length 5 book series) we all know that the heroine Randi is the VP of the USA with a President who is a big DICK! Trey the hero is cornered by his parents specifically his mother to do something that he wouldn’t normally agree to but to keep Randi safe he had no choice. His relationship with Jessica who in the beginning really seemed like a ‘woman power’ type of person until Trey’s mother got her claws in her, is a rather preternatural relationship! I didn’t like the “triangle” aspect of it in the beginning, it turned me off only because that is my taste or NOT my taste to be exact. I put a lot of emotion and feeling into reading, and it’s not so much as put but that’s how I read, will a full heart and concentration to the story and characters. Blessing & a Curse!
That also said, it really in this one you can see how hard it really is to keep a relationship when you’re the VP and the other is sworn and paid to protect you. The hurdles they go through are real and dangerous, sweet, romantic, fast, mysterious…it has it all. It’s deep political romance but with lot’s of twists and turns. Randi is complex character that Trey keeps at bay, they really are perfectly perfect together. Aside from the beginning where I wanted Jessica killed off, I really enjoyed the remainder. Now let’s talk about the ending: everything from 65% and on was intense, from the lies, secrets, danger constant danger, Randi holds her ground. Like I said these two are perfect for one another and the ending had me SHOOCKED!!!!!! Just shoocked!

Not my first read by the author, not only is she one of my top 5 favorites but also the 2nd read ever many moons ago when I started reading and reading romance! That said I have read almost every single book she has put out and this was a beautiful surprise because one: i love anything by Jodi but also because I’ve been having streaks of ‘not my cup of tea’ books and this is a life saver! So here we go…and what a start, hello arrogance at it’s finest!
The best part to this was the first meeting of Ty & Lainey PERFECT meet, I am so glad that a woman made him feel off kilter, the man-whore Ty being seduced by a woman who didn’t even say a word to him or pay him much attention! And then it turned a little touch and go for me, while I enjoy a man chasing a woman he can’t have or that sizzling attraction between the hero and heroine, this was a lot of “other” conquers if you know what I mean and you only get glimpses of the heroine which is not much besides a few things that I didn’t really like..there I say it but this is a HIS POV only and so I am only going off of what we got from the heroine and I’m only 27% in. It was just a little slow and repeat for me for a while actually. I really hope it picks up and we get more of WHO the heroine is because so far, I just don’t know what to think of her. Alright we are at around 50% and I wish I could say that it got better for me, but sadly it did not. The issue I had until now is that 1. we don’t get much about the heroine but a few things 2. his pov only 3. the hero fucking (excuse my language) but I got really fed up and irritated with the hero fucking everything possible – there just sin’t an easier way to say this 4. the hero want’s her but she doesn’t until she does. 5. we wont get a glipse of even a little more of the heroine until 42%
All that said already, I am not even finished and I must say now that the ‘romance’ and them kind of together is happening, I am too turned off…I don’t know how to enjoy them together. Really disappointed but I am always truthful on my review’s and that’s what you’re getting. My point of view and thoughts! Here is something that really pissed me off:
The silence stretched as I searched my failing brain. What the hell do I say now?Yes, I was a manwhore, but I want more with you?Or,Yes, you saw me take another woman home to fuck last night, but I was so fucking done with your games.
I just had a really had time connecting with either one of them after this, because Lainey is so indecisive and confusing because we don’t now her well and the angst in this, for me, is overbearing. It was fun in the beginning but then it got old for me and started to get irritating, so you can imagine how my reading went with that type of feeling. I am not a fan of indecisiveness of either character to a breaking point along with the hero fucking other woman in details this many times. I won’t be sorry for what I do not find romantic or enjoy reading, but I guess we will see. I will end this once I am done reading. I’ve got about 40% left. p.s. I also can’t look past this one: (Sorry but I do not find that romantic and it throws me off, if anything just pisses me off to think of all the conquests that he has had)
Last night I fucked a girl I could easily never see again. I hate that she was in my bed. At least, I hate it now. But if anything, it proved categorically to me that I really wasn’t done with Lainey. Not by a long shot. And she so isn’t done with me.
Towards the ending, TY really get’s swoony, like the type I wish he was at the beginning, wish I didn’t have to fight my feelings for time this late in the game, because when he wants he can be so dreamy, funny and swoony. Ty was a complex character but I enjoyed him more than anything, smart, successful, a man-whore yes but deep down you’ll understand why. Nothing like that can be said about the heroine, maybe the not having her POV played a huge factor but I did jot like her, bits and pieces ans thats it. And then I got thowards the very end and, wow (that’s not a good wow) this messed me up in all the ways of reading romance and not in a good way. I’m speechless at the fact that this came from Jodi Ellen Malpas. Unfortunately did dropped to a 3.5 for me because wow, that was not cool, the explanation, the way the heroine was all about it, the way the hero is…wow just wow. THE END!

Waking up to a text asking why you stood up your blind date is not the best way to start the day especially when the man in question is lying in bed next to you. Maybe Dakota Newton shouldn’t have assumed that the gorgeous man with a devastating smile, standing out side of the coffee shop was her date. She probably… Okay, she definitely shouldn’t have slept with him, regardless of how hot the chemistry between them was. But, how could she know that Mr. Right was actually Mr. Wrong. Brax Adam’s has been called a few things in his life, but a liar was never one of them. That all changes when he’s standing outside a coffee shop and approached by a beautiful woman who thinks he’s there to meet her for a blind date. As a businessman, Brax knows to trust his gut and never let an opportunity pass him by so he pretends to be someone he’s not. Maybe he shouldn’t have lied, maybe he should have come clean, but in the end it doesn’t matter because now he has to prove that he’s not the wrong man but the right one. So what if he’s not the man she’s expecting, she’s the one he’s been waiting for.

I’ve been branded from the inside out, and every muscle in my body feels deliciously used.
I realize I might be just as insane as Braxton Adams, and I’m okay with that.
Not my first read by the author, she was my 3rd read every MANY MOONS AGO when I started reading and reading romance. Just so we are clear, I have read every single book of Aurora and re-read them plenty of times to know them like the back of my hand. So she is a #oneclick INSTA-READ author for me. This is something NEW and I am always excited for that from Aurora. New in a sense that it’s not an ‘insta love’ but a very intense amazing new type of Aurora’s writing.
Little about the characters: Dakota the heroine who is an amazing woman that went through a rough patch, being let down and disappointed by the one mans eh thought was the future. When she moves in with her brother Jamie WHO by the way IS FREAKING AMAZING I fell in love with him right away too. So here she is, new everything and agreed to go on a blind date even though she knows she isn’t ready but what the heck, why not. Braxton is our hero who is not only alpha, handsome, sexy, gravely voice, and in charge but a man who see’s what he wants and goes for it. This is a from HER POV only and the bits and pieces you get of the hero you will LOVE.
The way these two met might have been unconventional, but their connection very real and high. They both have to fight their own battles but can’t seem to keep away from one another. It’s just, their banter, the sizzling love, Brax might be a man of very few words but they are powerful, this story will suck you in, and the twist…I did not expect that. A very DARK and SEXY feel of this story. I can’t wait for more and wish there was more haha, hoping Jamie’s story comes very soon!!!!! I definitely need more like this writing from Aurora!

Not my first read by the author, I have read actually a lot of the author’s books & this one caught my eye, the blurb first then the cover. This author has amazing covers, I will give her that. That said, she also is a 50/50 hit for me, meaning I’ve read some I was not able to connect with and the other’s were obviously amazing.
Heather get’s dumped at the worst time ever. She goes into a frenzy on her birthday out with her friends and they declare she attend the wedding alone, because female empowerment and screw society rules. But, Heather is not ready for that statement, she needs to go with someone….
Archer Powell, a self-centered, hot and I know it, know-it-all who works at the same place as her…but rumors circling is that he would never be repeating a office-romance again. But then again, she has barely spoken to the man so no way would he ever be a candidate. Archer is a man that gets what he wants, and deep down has a big heart.
Now, I enjoyed the story I did but again, somehow the hero rubbed me the wrong way. He wasn’t romantic alpha but more just pushy type. I didn’t get a vibe from him, and I am so sad to say because I’ve read this author’s other books and loved the hero’s. Could just be me but that’s how he came off to me. That said, because of him mainly is why my rating. It is a office-romance and a fun one at that, the heroine is strong and sassy and I still enjoyed it all. And I will keep reading because I know I’ll get a great hero vibe again from her.

With the campaign over, a new devious challenge awaits.
I thought the toughest part was behind us. Stupid me. Now I have to live with the consequences of winning, some that make me regret ever stepping foot in this city. Day one in office I learn of the president’s true plan, one so manipulative I can’t allow it to come to fruition. But with zero allies to call on, I’ll need to work with my enemies to stand a chance at stopping him.
At least I have Trey, even if our scorching-hot affair can only happen in secret. Until the best part of my new life makes his own deal with a devil, I’m forced to make a choice. I can’t have it all in this power game they’ve woven, and watching me flounder is just part of their sick fun. Or can I play the game, change the rules, and have everything in the end?
Too bad for me, luck has never been on my side. It’s sink or swim here in DC, and I’m the idiot wearing cement shoes to the party.

This pull, her smell, her voice–everything about her calls to me.
Not my first read by the author and I am lucky enough to have already read Book #1 and have been hanging on this cliff for not too long, love love love anything Kennedy books so, let’s just say that I was stoked to receive Book #2 this early! I would like to say at this junction that KYLE needs to be killed off, pushed, ran over, eaten by sharks…any of those above. Sneaky, slimy little shits!
Randi our heroine keeps her head held high, after all she came this far, but she is not out of the woods yet, the worst has only become, from glares to talks behind back and much more. This book will test our heroine in the best ways possible…all while having to fight her own will and heart for Trey. It’s heart breaking and empowering this whole book, but I was reading fast trying to get to…well I don’t know not an end but somewhere to know what’s going to happen, when and who…the tight leash Randi is being held in all this…is EXPLOSIVE…there is only a woman can take so much! It’s a slow burn of all slow burns…painfully you will feel each with her. But this girl, this woman who has faught her whole life has some fight still left in her…Kyle she is coming for you.

I will be hanging here again on the cliff, waiting for Book #3 because this one almost killed me….the ending will leave you guessing…

Terminated for inappropriate behavior. I couldn’t believe the letter in my hands. Nine years. Nine damn years I’d worked my butt off for one of the largest companies in America, and I was fired with a form letter when I returned home from a week in Aruba. All because of a video taken when I was on vacation with my friends—a private video made on my private time. Or so I thought… Pissed off, I cracked open a bottle of wine and wrote my own letter to the gazillionaire CEO telling him what I thought of his company and its practices. I didn’t think he’d actually respond. I certainly never thought I’d suddenly become pen pals with the rich jerk. Eventually, he realized I’d been wronged and made sure I got my job back. Only…it wasn’t the only thing Grant Lexington wanted to do for me. But there was no way I was getting involved with my boss’s boss’s boss. Even if he was ridiculously gorgeous, confident, and charming. It would be completely wrong, inappropriate even. Sort of like the video that got me into trouble to begin with. Two wrongs don’t make a right. But sometimes it’s twice as fun.

“Do you just want to sleep with me, or do you want to actually take me out? Grant smiled. “Yes.”
I’d been kissed before, kissed really well even, but no one had ever kissed the shit out of me. My mind was in a fog from it. He smiled and used his thumb to wipe my bottom lip.“God, I wanted to do that so badly all night.”
Not my first read by author and yes she is on my top 10 author’s and yes I have read every single book by her, all the series and standalone. I will say that I kind of wish this started a new series, would be ah-mah-zing.
This standalone snuck up on me & blew my mind!!! It had banter, heart, passion and was very addicting!
Grant Lexington, where do I begin. CEO, powerful, in control, serious…a past that you will never guess and carrying the biggest guilt on his shoulders, along with the world. He deemed himself unable to love 7 years ago vowing to never repeat mistakes. Lie the blurb said, two wrongs never make a right, well fate is always a sneaky little thing. When he receives an angry email from one of his employee’s one night, he is intrigued and even cracked a smile but not enough to peruse it. BING.
Ireland Saint James is a woman who grew up without family, the one she had was everything to her. She also has worked for everything in her life, including this job she just got canned from all due to some innocent fun. Going over the email she wrote the night of a drunken fest, she cringes when she re-reads it. After some courage she decides that another email is a must follow, because well, she isn’t someone to give up that easy. A fighter. SENT. That should do it, at least if anything, she can’t say she didn’t try.
As I am always honest in my review’s I won’t lie and say that I was actually already expecting what will happen because I have read every single book by Vi and kind of felt familiar, as in her words and writing style. But boy was I jolted to reality when this took a turn for the best. What I enjoyed most is the way the hero and heroine were together, not your average boy and girl just felt…that’s it I FELT THEM if that makes sense. Their chemistry was insane and I will say this that this does not disappoint in the SEXY SCENES department, or DIRTY TALK!!! They go really well together and I know I will forever remember this book. Watch out for the few twists, have tissue ready because you’ll most definitely need it. Another AMAZING Standalone by Vi!!

Not my first read by author, she is my #bookwifey and I have read all her books! Been excited for this one actually and NO I don’t know much ahead of time and also I don’t beta read for her, I like to be surprised with the awesome ARCs which I always am thankful for to Nikki.
Okay, I know I’ve said it before but I LOVE THIS ONE! It’s a perfect enemy-to-lovers romance!! Rochelle and Rafael are both so strong with a lot of history between them. A lot of sizzling history that is. Rochelle is very VERY headstrong and outspoken, and won’t repeat her mistake again and be hurt. While Rafa carries so much on his shoulder and is equally stubborn. This story is not for the faint of the heart because *sigh*
I will say that at the beginning it was a little hard to connect with Rochelle but here is the secret, to me Rafa tames her and somehow him being him, makes Rochelle even more better. She is still very tough, strong and outspoken but Rafa just brings out so much more in her. That said this is definitely one of my favorites of Nichole’s books!

Stuck with a dangerously hot man nearly around the clock is tonrture in itself.
Not my first read by author and I am very honored to have received this ARC very early!! I can’t wait to see more in this series because after this one I AM NOW HOOKED!! Also little about the author from how I perceive her: her books are different, in a REAL sense, so it’s not your typical romance and it’s always real to a point you forget your reading. So, this is a political-real-life-romance, enemy-to-lovers, angsty, suspenseful, mysterious, action packed, funny and sweet at times also. Slow burn for sure, but with some teasing! When hero and heroine meet it’s under not so good circumstances. What’s worse is that Randi was shocked by the man’s size and beautiful eyes, until the harsh words that come out of his mouth. How do you change someone perception of yourself when it’s a lie to yourself too.
Trey Benson is part of Randi’s security detail, and the man is a grumpy one. Sexy, but grumpy! Considering he got himself and his team in the situation they are in in the first place. I think it’s funny that he already made up him mind about Randi, but he has NO IDEA!! Trey and Randi are more intertwined than they know, small world if you will. Beware and that’s saying it light of K Y L E! Oh my gosh, did I want to stab him then suffocate him with his own pillow a few times! *grrrr* This is a VERY REAL LIKE political life, and boy did the author do some good research which ever way!!
Two people whoa re polar opposite, lies, wrongs, deception and real life. It’s when Trey realizes a little who Randi really is, every day it’s something new and he can’t believe his eyes because, not a minute ago she was this polished, clean beautiful and shark woman in a world of powerful men. This is a DON’T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT’S COVER through and through. I really really flipping fell in love with Randi, her past, her upbringings, her push through life…it’s admirable and not believable at times but in here you will understand that, really not everyone is as they seem. But throughout all this, she stays true to HERSELF even if the rest of the world sees her as this perfect Political Barbie!
While these two try and figure out WHO THEY ARE to themselves, while living this life of polar opposite yet so very much alike…it’s a on the edge of the seat, glued to your book type of story. As much as the political world is arrogant, there is a way to navigate, the question is will Randi trust her new found friend Trey to help her with that, and will Randi put himself back out there for someone he essentially had pegged already?!
Prepare for that ending & thereafter…seriously, a fight to the end?

Blurb: The first time I met Alexander Harding, I yelled at him for taking my parking spot. Rich and powerful, I saw him as nothing more than my new coldhearted boss. I hated him once but now…now things aren’t that simple. There’s a man beneath the beast, and the more I get to know him, the more I fall in love with him. Though just as I’m able to envision a future together, the past comes back to haunt us both. Six years ago, my life changed forever when I found out I was pregnant. The last thing I expected was to see Michael Cooper again, but now he’s here and is ready to make up for lost time. He wants to be involved in his daughters’ life. My life. And it’s making me question everything. I never thought it was possible to be in love with two men at the same time. One from my past, and one I want in my future. My heart is completely torn in two, with each half going in a different direction. I’d give them each half if I could. But then I would be left with nothing.

“…and my road wasn’t paved like I though it would be, but everything that happened…it lead me to you.”
Not my first read by author, and I have read book 1 HARD PLACE! That said I need to express how really sad I was when I read the blurb and realized that this could be a LOVE TRIANGLE which is one of my triggers! *tear* But do read Book 1 before diving into this one!
So, the beginning of Book 2 does not continue where it leaves from in Book 1. You get the backstory of Michael and Harper (and it’s really sweet and good GAH!) God this hurts to read because my heart is torn between Michael and Alex! And of course they are very much so intertwined, it’s all the lies, secrets and angst and a little suspense that you get from here on out!
I can’t really reveal too much because the book contains a lot of everything I say will give it out, but will say that it hurt me reading it because I am a hopeless romantic a one woman type of romantic so it was hard for me to distinguish one man from the other. Can’t have both but then again whoever said that was true? Harper has a hard time during all this, being a single mother and wanting to do what’s best for everyone…and sometimes leaving yourself out too. I gotta say that I was not expecting the ending, totally wasn’t even ready for it, I myself was torn.

Not my first read by author SHE IS MY BOOK WIFEY, have read every single book and extended anything by her and loved them all, with one maybe just a tiny smudge less. [Hey Nikki, at least I didn’t rate it a 1 star] *inside joke!

They warned me not to take this job. They said you were ruthless, impossible to please… I said I was better than them. I wouldn’t fall for your charm, your arrogance, or how sexy you fill out that suit. I wouldn’t fall for your deep brown eyes or the way that muscle moves in your square jaw when you’re pissed.
I said I could resist you. I was wrong…

Why didn’t anyone tell me how insanely hot this devil is?
“I want to sleep with you.” Her brow quirks, and a naughty smile curls her lips.“Can we do more than sleep?” “You said I’m the devil, right?” “So I’ve heard.” I catch her bare ankle, pulling her closer.“Then definitely.”
Not my first read by author and will probably never be the last hehe. I have loved Tia’s books for a while now and she quickly became a top favorite author of mine! I may or may not have screamed when I got the ARC, gah! I love anything by Tia so don’t hold it against me!! What a start, jumps right in the line of duty so to speak. My heart was racing.
When Raquel “Rocky” decided what to do with her life after grad-school, she hopped right on the same train as her sister. Work wise that is. Her first day not only does her new boss she was warned of insult her but also is mean. They called him THE DEVIL and to her recollection that suits him just fine. Few days into work and they managed to spew off hate at each other, ignoring the sign that says otherwise. The chemistry between Patton and Raquel is undeniable, even the co-workers notice. One company picnic changes it all!
Characters Raquel: She is so strong, sensitive, upfront and loving. Beside the fact of being gorgeous. Will do anything for her sister. When I say STRONG i mean STRONG, even after losing her parents. Patton: Sexy, smart, handsome, caring the weight of the world on his shoulders, rugged, mean…but a heart of gold! Former Military, can’t get over what happened therefore pushes himself on to helping his brothers.
This was a sexy, addictive, action-packed, fun and enjoyable story! Little bit of fun, lot’s of enemy-to-lovers and SIZZLING! Rocky and Patton are the perfect couple, their chemistry is off the charts. The story falls in line and as always Tia’s writing needs no words but amazing! I will have to say that at one point I was not too sure about Rocky’s sister BUT see it through because it will make full sense at the end. And what a beautiful HEA! *swoon* Watch out ladies PATTON is the new Devil!

Cold. Callous. Cocky. A total playboy with abs for days, a panty-melting smirk, and a face the gods themselves would be jealous of. And he’s my new boss. None of that matters, because as a single mom, men like Alexander Harding are the last thing I need. What I do need is this job, so I’m going to keep my head down, work hard, and avoid that asshole as much as humanly possible. But then he gives me an offer I can’t refuse, even though everything inside of me is warning me to run away and never look back. It’s just one weekend. One weekend to convince a bunch of stuffy investors that Alexander has changed from the player who spent more time in the bedroom than the boardroom into a family man they’d be happy to go into business with. But the more time I spend with him, the more I realize that there might be a beating heart buried under his designer shirts and spectacular pecs after all…which is bad news for me. Because the only thing worse than hating your boss is falling in love with him.

He has muscular forearms, and seeing that little but of tan skin shouldn’t make heat flash through me, I swallow hard, trying to push the image of his deft fingers moving up to his collar, slowly unbuttoning his shirt out of my head.
Alex…who’s only wearing a towel. It’s wrapped dangerously low around his waist and I’ve never wished for telekinetic powers more in my life.
Not my first read form the author, she happens to be ONE OF MY FAVORITE authors! So I am very familiar with her writing style and the fact this is a start to a new SERIES gah, gold!!
Boy does this book start off with a bang! Struggle on top of struggle, you will feel all the feels of this single mom of two twin-daughters. Harper is a 25 year old beautiful, smart and happy personality single mom. Who happens to be struggling in many ways that is, when she gets offered a promotion in sorts, she really doesn’t have a choice and jumps at the chance to get a little ahead in life. She has lost so much and one night many moons ago wasn’t the right idea but the outcome is as beautiful. Little did she know though, the prick from the other night who stole her parking spot at the new school…is her new boss! BOOM!
Alex is a cocky, successful handsome man. He is well known for his worth ethic, rather enjoys it along with his string of non-string attachments if you will. But behind closed doors he is just a man who was mistreated in his childhood, who wasn’t shown love but brutality of the hard life at such a young age. He himself is sick of the long working nights, no one to really come home to and the nameless meaningless sex. When he finally get’s a spark from a woman, he can never really have her. SO MUCH IN BETWEEN!!
Alex loves Harper’s smile because it lights up the room and Harper can’t not look at the cocky but so sad boss of hers who wears the shit out of a suit! *sweating* When one night proves to be almost fate, this is where you fall in love with Alex *swoon swoon swoon* aside from all, he really does have a beautiful heart and mid-way you’ll see why! It shocked the hell out of Harper almost missing a beat to the lie. Since then things seem to smooth out enough to where Harper is talking to Alex again and not just work related. It’s all great until you REALLY can’t deny fate. It’s just so beautiful, two broken people in their own way to come together and GAH just swoony and beautiful! YES THAT’S A WORD, GO WITH IT! B U T not all lies even good intention ones are without fault, this is heartbreaking one too!! #havetissues
This enemy-to-lovers office romance is PERFECT. A great start to a new series and a MUST READ! You’ll get both POV’s, perfect hero and heroine, side characters and adorable little twin girls. It feels so real when you’re reading it, like it’s happening there so you know I don’t need to say much more about Emily’s writing style, it’s perfection!
