Beckett. Let me count the ways I loathe him.
1. He’s the bane of my existence. 
2. A thorn in my side. 
3. I’m pretty sure he’s the devil in disguise
Or he at least has him on speed-dial.

So why am I standing here, bouquet in hand, about to become his wife?

He calls it a business proposition.
I call it blackmail.
He says our fighting is foreplay.
I say he should be on meds.
He says he has the power to destroy my company,
I say with a husband like him, who needs enemies.

But I can survive this six-month calamity. 

All I have to do is keep hating him . . .

RELEASE DATE: August 8, 2019

‘I still hate you,’ I whisper into his kiss.
His chuckle is love and rough as he rasps, ‘I’m counting on it.’
His kiss becomes deeper, wetter, as one of his hands curls around my hip.

‘You look good for an old man,’ I whisper, resolutely keeping my gaze on the form.
‘And you’re angling to be pulled over my knee, young lady.’

New to me author & books, BUT definitely made it on my 2019 TOP list because this book was everything I love about a HERO & HEROINE in a Office-enemy-to-lovers romance! All happening in London and part New York!

Let’s start with Olivia the heroine who is not only sassy but willing, strong and soft under it all. She is the perfect heroine when it comes to characters and story. Opinionated, stubborn, sassy, beautiful and loving. Now our hero Beckett who is tall, sexy, broody, mysterious, well spoken, comes form old money and one of the HOTTEST HERO’S in 2019! He might be beautiful and sexy but he has a mouth on him. Equal part to Olivia, because their bickering and back and forth is honest foreplay for any heart.

[He waves off my protest. ‘The companies on the thirty-fifth floor all deal in business finance some sort. Meanwhile, we’ve also determined that I’m on first-name terms with Satan, that I think you’re rather lovely, and that I might like to kiss you.’]

Olivia runs her own company, one it involves the world of the rich and of course, suits. So when she goes on her dream-date with a man she’s been waiting to be available, things kind of go south…well for her it happens a lot…literally. The girl can’t keep her balance for shit, it’s actually how she met Beckett, at his feet. Olivia’s tardiness knows no bound but also it’s not fully her fault as everything seems to always happens o her no matter where she is off to. Meet Cute? Not so much cute, but sexy more like it.

When she is propositioned someone that not even in her dreams she would accept, she isn’t left of much with option, therefore being the sassy strong-headed woman, she jump in. But I will warn you this is not the normal office romance type, and you’ll see. Things are more THERE and HAPPENING. After all, she did marry the one man she loaths in lots of different ways.

I can’t say more but it’s a ride YOU WANT TO TAKE. The feelings I usually chase when reading ARE DEFINITELY HERE & SOME. Something about their duo was fantastic, side characters also, the time line lined up perfectly and the transitions were very smooth! I will briefly touch on the sexy scenes and say that hands down THIS AUTHOR HAS IT DOWN!!

‘Your skin is like moonlight,’ he whispers, his voice rasping and raw.
‘And your freckles are constellation.’ His words are almost pondering as his hand trails across my collarbone, his eye following.
‘And I’m going to cover them in cum.’

I am leaving THAT at THAT. Very sizzling, the chemistry and romance very beautiful. The only thing that was wrong with all this, I NEEDED MORE! I feel like a 2,3 or 4th epilogue is necessary please!! Front start to end, this book will keep you engaged, on your toes, angry, scared and happy!! All the feels for sure!
