Top three reasons why sleeping with the enemy is a bad idea...
1. She’s my fiercest rival.
2. She’s also my fiery ex.
3. We’re going up against each other in a stiff competition to win the hottest new client on the market.
And yet, I’d like to be up against the wall in a stiff competition to get her to call out my name.
Time to double down on my resistance to her tough-as-nails, take-no-prisoners, sexy-as-sin attitude. The same attitude that I find irresistible.
That’s the big problem, because in this race to nab the client I run into Haven in the hotel, on the beach, in the guest quarters late at night.
Hate sex would be a terrible idea.
Except, it’s the complete opposite, and now we can’t keep our hands off each other.
Trouble is, I’m not so sure it’s hate I’m feeling anymore.
And that’s the biggest reason sleeping with the enemy you’re falling for is a bad idea -- my job literally depends on never letting her into my heart.

Josh and Haven - Enemies to Lovers.
What a fun and flirty enemies to romance story! Josh and Haven are fierce rivals as sports agents. He has a background in Law, she was an Olympian athlete who knows a thing or two about staying focused on what you want. At one point they worked for the same firm, but things got complicated, and feelings came into play. So I suppose you can also rate this as a second chance romance too.
I loved the way Josh's mind thinks. He is not that full of himself that he can't take a good joke. And he gave as good as he got too with Haven and well as his siblings and friends. He is that guy you want as your best bud. Haven was just as dedicated to her job as Josh, but she had to go one step more as she was in a male dominated world. She could hold her own, as she was feisty and gutsy making sure she won over her deals. But what I loved most about them was deep down, they both just couldn't get enough of each other and it showed in their feelings. The banter was amazing, which is true of Blakely's style, and the epilogue gives you a contented and satisfied feel. Great addition to this series.
Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive, even more so when the one we are trying to deceive are ourselves.
Haven Delilah and Josh Summers have history, both professionally and personally. This is a second chance, enemies to lovers story that had me riveted from the first to the last chapter.
Overnight Service is a fun book that ticked the boxes for me. I fell hard and fast for Josh and honestly he just melted my heart; Haven is one of those women that you could easily see as a friend, strong, determined and focused.
The dynamic between Josh and Haven was entertaining and they had me laughing throughout with their banter.
Of course the chemistry between them was smoking hot and I loved that previous characters made an appearance. I love the friendships between all the characters.
Overnight Service by Lauren Blakely
This book was so damn good, I could just scream! We have Josh, a sports agent with a background in law and Haven, a sports agent with Olympic medals in her arsenal! The two formerly worked together and had a brief but deep affair until the point that Josh recuses himself when it comes to recommending Haven for a promotion. This costs Haven more than a promotion and it costs them both their love affair. Now that they’re fierce competitors vying for the same client in an unusual way, Josh and Haven finally have a chance to talk things through and see if they can allow themselves a second-chance at love.
These two were soooo much fun from the get-go. The antagonism and witty barbs (and frankly, the outright smartassery) led to such an enjoyable few hours. This book was steamy and sexy and the chemistry between John and Haven was insane! I adored these two and their ‘supporting cast’ who are simply begging for stories and I’m ever so thankful that I won’t have to wait too long for Special Delivery!
