Faking It with Damian by DJ Hunnam
Publication date: January 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, Erotica, Romance
I don’t do relationships… especially not with egotistical jerks like my new boss, Damian Wood. The man is vile, arrogant, condescending… and scorching hot. If he weren’t my boss and a grade-A a*&hole, I would turn on my world-famous charm and seduce the pants right off the man. But giving in to his undeniable allure might just cost me my job. Or worse yet, my heart.
I’m a prick…and Janice Holder’s new boss. Which means I should stay away, but I’ve never claimed to be a nice guy. If I don’t get my twisted fascination under control, it will only be a matter of time before I bend her over my desk and screw her. Hard. The way I’ve imagined no fewer than a thousand times since we met. I’m playing with fire and neither of us can afford to get burned, but landing in hot water might just be worth the risk.
Faking It is a full-length, standalone office romance. It contains steamy scenes with a ton of heat and strong language intended for mature audiences.
I’m going to start this review by saying that, overall, I really enjoyed it. However, I really struggled to like Janice. She struck me as a somewhat arrogant and self absorbed character, and despite attempts to soften her, she never quite won me over.
Damian is also all of those things, but for me at least, he was easier to connect with. I don’t think that this is me applying double standards, I just felt that the way he presented was more relatable than Janice.
And steamy scenes? Oh my. This office romance might easily be considered as NSFW.
The wider story arc is a reasonable one. The connection between the two lead characters is compelling and well executed.
At the risk of repeating myself, overall, I really enjoyed it!
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
