The first time I met Chase Parker, I didn’t exactly make a good impression.
I was hiding in the bathroom hallway of a restaurant, leaving a message for my best friend to save me from my awful date.
He overheard and told me I was a bitch, then proceeded to offer me some dating advice.
So I told him to mind his own damn business—his own tall, gorgeous, full-of-himself damn business—and went back to my miserable date.
When he walked by my table, he smirked, and I watched his arrogant, sexy ass walk back to his date.
I couldn’t help but sneak hidden glances at the condescending jerk on the other side of the room. Of course, he caught me on more than one occasion, and winked.
When the gorgeous stranger and his equally hot date suddenly appeared at our table, I thought he was going to rat me out.
But instead, he pretended we knew each other and joined us—telling elaborate, embarrassing stories about our fake childhood.
My date suddenly went from boring to bizarrely exciting.
When it was over and we parted ways, I thought about him more than I would ever admit, even though I knew I’d never see him again.
I mean, what were the chances I’d run into him again in a city with eight million people?
What were the chances a month later he’d wind up being my new sexy boss?
Going in I thought this book would be your typical office romance story and it was furthest from the truth!! This book had me laughing out loud, sighing, smiling and clutching my heart!! As a reader I love it when a book makes me feel all the feels!! This book sucked me in and I couldn't stop reading.
Chase and Reese I loved them as a couple! They both have so much in common and you could just feel the connection and chemistry oozing out the pages. I loved their banter and everything was just perfect! I loved the build up of the relationship. They took the time to get to know each other and let their walls down which wasn't easy for either of them to do!! They had a lot more in common which each other than they realized.
On to my favorite part, the feels!!! Man we had some tense and angst filled moments in this book. Several times I just wanted to wrap my arms around Chase and tell him it was going to be ok! My heart broke with and for him in this story. I won't go into details but when you read you will want to give him a hug as well. As the story went on I also wanted to smack him upside his head and stay ENOUGH!!!! You can't change the past and focus on the future!! He was too stubborn for his own good but a part of me didn't blame him and understood his actions.
"Don’t focus on the what ifs. Focus on what is." As someone who always focuses on the "what ifs" I loved this quote!!
I'm so happy the author went a different route and didn't do the typical office romance story. This story had everything I loved romance, comedy, angst and a wonderful message!! Well done Vi Keeland!!
