Hotshot sports editor Cole Sharpe has been freelancing for Oxford for years, so when he hears about a staff position opening up, he figures he’s got the inside track. Then his boss drops a bombshell: Cole has competition. Female competition, in the form of a fresh-faced tomboy who can hang with the dudes—and write circles around them, too. Cole usually likes his women flirty and curvy, but he takes a special interest in his skinny, sassy rival, if only to keep an eye on her. And soon, he can’t take his eyes off her.
Penelope Pope knows all too well that she comes off as just one of the guys. Since she’s learned that wanting more usually leads to disappointment, Penelope’s resigned to sitting on the sidelines when it comes to love. So why does Cole make her want to get back in the game? The man is as arrogant as he is handsome. He probably sees her as nothing more than a barrier to his dream job. But when an unexpected kiss turns into a night of irresistible passion, Penelope has to figure out whether they’re just fooling around—or starting something real.
This is not my first book from the Author, I must say that I loved reading her previous books and this one in particular did not disappoint. Intense rivalry from two intense and hard working people. And you know what caught my eye? The fact that this book was unexpectedly explosive.
I was hooked with the description and I drooled over the Cover of the book. Knowing that this is another book from an Author I knew would write books that I will absolutely fell in love with is like a bonus on a weekday. This started out as sweet and melting then it was mixed with humor and an in office antics. Seriously, I was like in a living dream with this one, really romantic and filled with lust/love relationship.
Lauren, you have hooked me once again and I’m not even sorry. I had a hard time feeling the characters though. I don’t know if its just me and my divided attention at the beginning or if it was really hard to believe that the 2 casts were really going to click. But eventually they worked out for me and I’ve got zero problem with the storyline. So, 4 stars for that!
