Blog Tour+ Review: Conflict Of Interest by Teresa Michaels


 Title: Conflict of Interest
Series: Employee Relations #1
By: Teresa Michaels
Publication Date: July 8, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Mayhem Cover Creations
Ambitious and insightful, Gabby DiVergilio only has one thing standing in the way of her climbing the corporate ladder: her new business partner, Lucas McCarthy. He's arrogant and dismissive, driving her mad with his sexy Irish accent in every possible way. Recently promoted to the executive ranks, Lucas must prove that he’s the right man for the job. He never expected that the HR professional he’d be forced to work with on a daily basis would be gorgeous, challenging and smart as hell. He’s not the type to accept help from anyone, especially not a bubbly, policy-enforcer that he’d rather bend over his desk. Never one to lose focus, Lucas avoids Gabby at all costs until circumventing her becomes career suicide. Fraternizing in the workplace is strictly prohibited and neither one of them are willing to break the rules. But with their undeniable chemistry about to ignite, Lucas and Gabby must decide which consequence is worse – combusting from sexual frustration or violating company policy.

  This is the story of Gabby and Lucas, polar opposites who must work together in order to achieve their career goals.  While she’s a wholesome girl from an Italian family, altogether happy and extroverted, he is an Irish loner, without any visible family ties who’d rather work alone.  Unfortunately for them, the chemistry since the moment they lay eyes on each other is more powerful than either one is prepared to accept and it’s enough to bring one awkward situation after another.  Add to that the fact that they are must work closely together, despite Lucas reluctance to accept her help, the non-fraternization company policy and a change of arrangements of one business trip to make things a tad more complicated for the pair.
This was my first read by Ms. Michaels and I have to say that I was very impressed.  The book is beautifully written, witty from page one and has some of the best deliveries I’ve ever read before.  The characters are well developed, with solid background stories and the plot doesn’t remain static even though there’s a lot of back and forth between Lucas and Gabby trying to deal with the issues affecting them.
The only thing that bothered me was the extreme detail provided on company policies and her HR work, but in all, it doesn’t take from the story.
If you like your romance with a good side of laughter, Conflict of Interest is a book you can’t pass up.

Blurb: Finding my best friend and getting the hell out of California is top priority. Especially as the relationship with my rockstar stepbrother becomes more complicated with each passing day...

I’m on the tour bus partying!

The text from my best friend, Ivy, is one of her last. When weeks stretch with no further contact, I travel to L.A. to track down the band known as Rageon and find Ivy.

As the daughter of a groupie mom, and of a rock star father who fatally overdosed, I know the dangers of the world my friend disappeared into.

My ex-stepbrother, Gage, a musician who’s just come off tour invites me to crash at his place.

The last time I saw Gage in person, we were teens. He's everywhere on social media, so I’m prepared for the tattoo-covered rocker who answers my knock. What I’m not expecting to find is the sweet, s…
