From # 1 New York Times bestselling author Vi Keeland, comes a new, sexy novel.
It was just a typical Monday.
Until the big boss asked me to make the pitch for a prospective new client.
After two years on shaky ground at work because of my screw up, an opportunity to impress the senior partners was just what I needed.
Or so I thought…
Until I walked into the conference room and collided with the man I was supposed to pitch.
My coffee spilled, my files tumbled to the ground, and I almost lost my balance.
And that was the good part of my day.
Because the gorgeous man crouched down and looking at me like he wanted to eat me alive, was none other than my ex, Gray Westbrook.
A man who I’d only just begun to move on from.
A man who my heart despised—yet my body obviously still had other ideas about.
A man who was as charismatic and confident as he was sexy.
Somehow, I managed to make it through my presentation ignoring his intense stare.
Although it was impossible to ignore all the dirty things he whispered into my ear right after I was done.
But there was no way I was giving him another chance, especially now that he was a client
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Most romance novels don't kick off in a prison, but Vi Keeland defies expectations with this powerful second-chances story. After being convicted for insider trading, Gray Westbrook spends three years in Club Fed; there he meets Layla Hutton, a lawyer teaching a class as part of her own community service. The pair’s attraction is instantaneous, but the fallout from Gray's lies is cataclysmic. Years later, Gray and Layla reconnect and wonder whether they can get over their troubled past. We really appreciated Keeland's refreshing and nuanced take on the “bad boy” hero.
Gray = The Perfect Book boyfriend! 😍
OMGosh! I can’t even begin to express my love for Gray! He’s sweet, he’s sexy, and such a dirty talker too! All the things that make you tingle and sigh p, wishing he was for real and could possible be yours. That’s the one good thing about book boyfriends, they make you swoon, and you can pretend they are all yours! And Gray is definitely one of my new top book boyfriends!!
****“We’re not going to happen, Gray.”
A slow smile stretched across his handsome face. “Yes, we are. You can fight it all you want.” He leaned his face to mine.
Our noses were practically touching. My body tingled feeling his hot breath on my skin.
“In fact, I want you to fight it. Fight it tooth and nail. It will make it that much better for both of us when you finally give in.”
Oh, such a charmer he is! And ladies... that limousine scene... 🔥 🔥. And several more just like it. Their first kiss.... gah! When the sexual chemistry is just too much to bear, the sparks fly when they finally give in. They explode and you can feel the heat radiating off the pages.
Layla and Gray are the perfect couple! Their banter is hilarious. And steamy too! They just have a natural, no BS, attitude and it draws you in. From the very beginning, you can see the intense attraction between these two despite their circumstances and how they met.
And Etta, she is a pistol! I love her. She really cracks me... just wait till you hear the Zippy story! You’ll laugh and fall for this feisty old lady! She’s definitely one of my favorite characters (besides Gray and Layla of course!)
Vi has knocked it out of the park with this one. You DEFINITELY need Gray in your life! I swear he’s worth it!
Another great book from Vi!!
What an amazing book!! Love the mention of the O’Henry Hotel. And was visualizing the Green Valley Grille, and Friendly Center across the street. Practically my backyard.
