Why did I love this book?
The strapline alone was enough to make me want to know more, I mean, come on! "Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman sit across from each other every day...and they hate each other."
This tale of competing colleagues in the cutthroat publishing industry is wild and funny, with palpable sexual tension throughout. I personally love a male lead who is kind of scary and unreachable (…or is he?) and Joshua brings that perfect mix of brooding alpha males with hidden seams of sweetness. Lucy is sassy and sharp–a romantic heroine to aspire to. What really works for this book is the use of ambition competing against love. Which one will win?
With a first kiss scene that is seared in my memory, this is a funny, aspirational, and very sweet read.
