My Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Célian Laurent.
Manhattan royalty.
Notorious playboy.
Heir to a media empire.
…And my new boss.

I could have impressed him, if not for last month’s unforgettable one-night stand.
I left it with more than orgasms and a pleasant memory–namely, his wallet.
Now he’s staring me down like I’m the dirt under his Italian loafers, and I’m supposed to take it.
But the thing about being Judith “Jude” Humphry is I have nothing to lose.
Brooklyn girl.
Infamously quirky.
Heir to a stack of medical bills and a tattered couch.
When he looks at me from across the room, I see the glint in his eyes, and that makes us rivals.
He knows it.
So do I.
Every day in the newsroom is a battle.
Every night in his bed, war.
But it’s my heart at stake, and I fear I’ll be raising the white flag.

My Thoughts

This was my first L.J. Shen read and goodness did she not disappoint! This was steamy, drama filled and stole my attention in an afternoon. I can guarantee you that this will not be my last book by her! 

Our two main characters meet a bar and have a one night stand. She stole his wallet, he stole her iPod. They later meet when she gets a new job without realizing he would be her new boss. 

There is much that I could say about Célian. He was rude, conceited, and a downright asshole at times. He was a dirty talker who I think could talk the most virginal person out her panties. He made me fall for him and I honestly have no regrets! And then there is Judith. I loved this girl so freakin’ much you guys! This girl fought Célian at every turn and I loved her more for it. She was not a doormat and I couldn’t wait to see what would come out of her smart mouth next!

These two were great on their own, but together they were amazing! 

“I couldn’t forget how it felt when he touched me.
When his mouth was on mine.
When his hands pinned me to the wall.
When he made me forget about my sick father, paying bills, and unemployment. ”
 

The chemistry between these two could burn a damn hole through the pages! Not only that, but the banter between these two had me begging for more. If you love office romances and steamy scenes, then you should definitely check this out!

  1. Great review! I’ve seen her books around but have never clicked on them, I’m not a fan of office romances so I’ll probably have to try another one of her books though. The Viscous one looks interesting.
