From New York Times bestseller Lexi Ryan comes a sexy new enemies-to-lovers office romance about two people who never thought to hope for their own happy ending.
Two and a half years ago, I hit rock bottom and lost everything. Since then, I’ve turned my life around—no more booze, no more drugs, no more self-sabotage. With a new business to run and old promises to keep, the last thing I need is smart-mouthed hellcat Veronica Maddox disrupting my world.
Veronica’s as beautiful as she is infuriating. She pushes all my buttons. Maybe that didn’t matter before, but now she’s working for me. She keeps this place running. As a business owner, I appreciate that. As the man she hates and the one who can’t forget our wild night together, I’m slowly losing my mind. I told myself I could resist her, but we only get along when our hands are doing the talking. Before I know it, our relationship is anything but professional.
As a single mom, Veronica has a difficult past of her own, and when it comes knocking at her door, I find myself feeling inexplicably proprietary. Because no matter how much I try to convince myself otherwise, what started as two enemies looking for release has developed into something neither of us imagined possible. And while Veronica’s a complication I never wanted, she is exactly what I need.
I didn’t realize how much I missed Jackson Harbor until I was all up in it again! *happy sigh*
If it’s one thing you can count on when it comes to a Lexi Ryan story is the realism she devotes to her plot. I have yet to read a story of hers that is not grounded in real life and that’s one of the main reasons I admire her as a writer. She writes fiction that is not fluff. It is real and relatable and twisty just like life is. Nobody gets out of life smooth sailing all the way, nobody, and she makes sure she writes stories that reflect that. Are they sometimes a lot? Maybe, but they’re real *shrug*
Veronica’s circumstances could be any one of our circumstances and my heart is so full after reading her story. She’s a chic that’s gonna stick with you. And you know that thing they say about partners bringing out the best in each other … Colton & Veronica were those people and it made for a gloriously emotional story full of heart and hope. It wasn’t an easy read and I felt a lot of this story to my core, but it was uplifting and I loved it.
It’s been over a year since I last read Lexi Ryan and boy o boy what a mistake that was…
Right for the get go I was sucked into this story and I’ve read it in one sitting with my heart crying all the tears with everything that was happening to Veronica. As a single mother she didn’t need additional burden in her life but her past has a way of catching up with her even when she was sure it was settled.
Colton was an ass at the beginning but when he sees his mistakes he makes everything in his power to help her find peace and happiness by his side. It’s been a while where I read about a couple who deserved HEA more than these two.
