Can love bloom between the pages of a book?
When twenty-two-year-old Eva Price finally grows a pair and drops her highschool-sweetheart boyfriend turned jerk, the last thing on her mind is dating; all she wants to do is read her beloved fantasy novels and focus on her internship at the prestigious Vincent and Sons company.
But that’s hard when your boss is Alexander Vincent, the coldly arrogant and sinfully handsome CEO of Vincent and Sons. Every woman in the office wants him. But Alex’s overbearing, cancer-ridden father has other plans – Alex must marry a ‘high class’ girl before he dies in two months, or Alex loses his CEO position. Alex won’t let that happen, not when he’s sacrificed everything to make it to the top; his social life, his dominant sex life, and his happiness.
Fate is an ironic mistress, and Alex is a demanding master.
When Alex accidentally sends his only vice – a fantasy novel he’s been writing – to his intern Eva Price, he lies to keep his identity from her a secret. The timid Eva he sees in the office is nothing like the warm, witty girl who eagerly critiques his chapters with a hawk’s eye. Soon he’s imagining her in his bed, and in his life. With every emailed chapter their attraction to each other grows. But Eva is a normal girl – nowhere near high class enough for his father – and Alex’s time to find a wife is running out.
Will their fantasies bring them together, or force them apart?
Told in alternating viewpoints between Eva and Alexander, this is a standalone romance novel with a lot of angst, sweetness, and spice, suited for the 18+ crowd. If you enjoy slow-burning office romances, this is for you. Enjoy!
Have you ever read a book where you resented putting it down to get on with life? This was one of those books for me. I really enjoyed the relationship development between Eva and Alexander, and I thought that the dual POV worked really well as a narrative tool.
Sometimes with novels such as this, the story can take a back seat to the sexy times. I’m pleased to report that wasn’t the case here. However – I felt that the bedroom language used by the characters was a little jarring and didn’t entirely sit well with my idea of the characters; so much so, that my enjoyment of the overall story was slightly impaired.
That aside, I thought that this was a great little story.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
