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.
Bennet and Darcy. Forever.
Overnight Service had so many of my favorite tropes! There's the delicious Enemies to Lovers and the sweet Second Chance, and even some forced proximity and workplace romance thrown in for good measure. You really can't go wrong with a Lauren Blakely romcom!
I loved Haven and Josh and how intelligent, driven, and passionate they were in their jobs and in their lives. They had fantastic chemistry and the sparks really fly with these two. I loved watching them go head to head and each giving as good as they got. Haven is a force to be reckoned with and is definitely one of my favorite Blakely heroines. One of my favorite things about Overnight Service is that there is no other man or woman drama at all. Josh and Haven only have eyes for each other and even though this is a second chance romance, I appreciated that the separation wasn't filled with meaningless hookups for either of them. I did feel that the conflict and resolution was a little too convenient/overly sweet, but the epilogue was perfect for them.
Blakely always treats her fans to lots of crossovers and easter eggs, and I loved the little nods and mentions of previous characters/businesses. A little family tree/character map would definitely come in handy though! Blakely is also the best at setting the stage for future books and I'm very excited to get a little time with Vaughn and Josh's sister, Quinn, in Special Delivery. A book for Josh's other sister, Amy, is also on the horizon and is called Asking For a Friend. Overall, this was a really sexy and entertaining read.
*I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book*
Its a very satisfying read. Light hearted but swoon-worthy. Josh is completely in love with Haven and how he didnt took so
many twist and turn to let her know how deep is his feelin is satisfying. He was a real gentleman, with enpugh cockiness to banter with Haven but alqays attenti and gicing tonh
Keeping Your Enemy Close
Josh and Haven have a hate-heat thing going on. As both steely competitors and sports reps, there’s a natural rivalry going on, but these two take it to the next level in snark. Fueling this relationship is some very overdue and unresolved personal business that brings both heat and unrelenting attraction to the fore. Turns out that hate may just be another side to love. Great characters and a high naughty index make this a funny and heated read.
