A sexy new standalone novel from #1 New York Times Bestseller, Vi Keeland.
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.
This contemporary standalone is romantic, sexy, and just a little sentimental. When playboy divorce attorney Drew Jagger returns from vacation on New Year's Eve, he decides to make a quick check on renovations to his Park Avenue office before heading up to his penthouse apartment. Construction progress looks good, but someone left a light on in the file room. Opening the door, he's surprised to see a comely redhead leap onto a chair and threaten him with some serious krav maga moves. When her skirt falls down around her ankles she starts to look a lot less threatening. It turns out that some con man rented Jagger's office to the redhead, Emerie Rose, an Oklahoma transplant and marriage counselor. Taking pity on her, the confirmed playboy lets Emerie use some of his office space until she can either retrieve or replace her lost deposit. In the meantime, he fights a losing battle against committing to her. Fans of humorous contemporaries will find this a delightful diversion. (BookLife)
Egomaniac by Vi Keeland is a standalone romance told in dual POV between two of my favorite characters to date. Emerie is the Psychologist and marriage counselor to Drew's jaded divorce attorney. In this case - opposites really do attract!
There hasn't been a book Vi Keeland has written that I haven't adored. She is up there with my favorite authors and definitely a must-read for me. I truly feel like with relationships and people in general some people just click and for me some writers just click. Their writing style, the stories they tell, the characters they create - click, click, click!!!
Emerie is a strong female in a bad spot and the typically jaded and closed off Drew pretty much comes to her rescue. In the end they end up rescuing each other and making each other better. From the best meet-cute yet, to the journey they both take to get their happily ever after, this book is a gem. Enjoy!
Roller coaster of emotions, such a good read!
I couldn’t put this book down!
