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.

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.
I enjoyed and loved this book so much. The story line and ALL the characters were fantastic! I recommend this book to everyone.
Loved Josh and Haven. Sports Rom Com!
Oh how I love enemies to lovers and second chance genres, and this book has it all! Lauren Blakely scored another winner with me in Overnight Service, a sweet and sexy sports themed rom-com. Josh Summers, a sports agent at the top of his game not only holds a law degree but also the affections of Haven Delilah, a woman he inadvertently hurt in the past.
Haven is a former Olympic Gold medal winner who left Josh’s tutelage a scorned woman. She is headstrong, determined and fearless, opening her own sports agency in this male dominated field. She is smart and sassy, and now a rival of Josh’s often going after the same professional athletes to represent. These two are on fire every time they are near each other and it’s so fun to read. Their wit, banter, and one-line zingers are all just foreplay for these two vulnerable former lovers, who still harbor a deep emotional connection as well as an insane physical attraction.
Josh, as well as all of Lauren’s heroes, are really great guys and Josh won’t let you down in Overnight Service. He is smart and talented, and there is no doubt where his loyalties lie. He is so enamored with her and I loved watching their romance unfold. In between their bickering and sexy times, I loved how he put Haven first time and time again, often when she didn’t even know it. Swoon. Swoon. Swoon. These two have so much in common and once they let down their guard, clear up the miscommunications, and trust one another, they are a perfect match.
Overnight Service is a standalone, and the writing was flawless. I loved the cameos by secondary characters Jason and Sloan, and Lily (a reporter) and Finn from the Engagement Gift! Can’t wait for Jake’s story; I know it’s going to be fabulous!
