The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office. I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills. He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.
Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant. Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.
Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated. Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent. I was swindled out of ten grand.
The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place. I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind. I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.
The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages. The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing. And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.
I’m going to keep this review super short because I sure as hell don’t want to spoil the story for you guys…
I’ve been enjoying the collaborations between Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, but this one? This was one of my favorite romances from this year. Keeland’s writing is amazing on this one. The book is told in the first person, dual POV, and Emerie and Drew’s voices are super different and they complement each other so well.
I loved both main characters. LOVED THEM!!! They had both such strong personalities and convictions, but they were able to listen to each other and understand one another, and ugh, their relationship and chemistry was just AMAZING.
The book has a few twists and I have to say that I was super surprised that I didn’t see the finish line right from the start. It’s a sign that this romance is super well written. I did see the conflict, but it didn’t make it any less heartbreaking…
This book made me cry, people. It did. And it was awesome.
If you’re looking for a great romance, with an amazing and strong couple, read Egomaniac, you won’t be sorry.
