⭐️⭐️⭐️ Problematic

This hero… doesn’t seem to understand the word NO. It’s a common theme in an otherwise light and sweet book. I love a good office romance and don’t normally have an issue with the dynamics, but there were several instances in this one that just didn’t sit right (more on that in a minute). It’s kind of a shame because I was enjoying the book up until a certain point – and I’ve read solid books by the author in the past – but this one lost me more and more as it went on.

The story follows Charlie (our heroine), who is just starting a new job. When she gets into a playfully heated conversation with a cute guy at work, Charlie unknowingly changes her life forever. Connor is actually the owner’s son, her coworker/supervisor who has come home temporarily to help save the family business. As the two spend time working on their plans together, attraction blooms. But Connor has no intention of staying in town, so his efforts to win Charlie over only complicate matters.

I really wanted to like this one, and there was a lot about it that I did enjoy. But a hero should never (minor spoiler here) get turned on thinking about a “kiss” taken while the heroine was unconscious and in need of resuscitation. A hero – who is kinda sorta the heroine’s boss – should never coax the heroine into a physical relationship, knowing that she isn’t sold on the idea. A hero shouldn’t be so self-centered and pushy. That’s where this one started to unravel for me. There’s nothing extreme but there are several situations that got a lip curl from me. I appreciated receiving an ARC (and am voluntarily leaving a review), but this definitely wasn’t my favorite from the author.


Release Date: July 29

That awkward moment when you insult the boss on your first day on the job.
Yeah, that just happened.
In my defense, if I’d known it was Connor Colby of the Colby’s Chocolates and Candies empire standing by the display dressed in a candy cane-striped suit, I never would have opened my mouth to tell him that their signature chocolate bar sucked.
How was I supposed to know he was the boss man?
He was in town temporarily to help save his father’s company.
I was only there for a payday to jump start my art career.
I had one job—help him come up with a rock solid marketing plan.
The task included long nights and late dinners working by Connor’s side.
It did not include kisses, sex in the supply closet, or … worst yet, falling in love.
Why is that so bad you ask?
Because the man is leaving right after our mission is complete. Job done.
Finito.

Will our sweet love turn into sour patched tear jerkers or will he be my big hunk, now & later and forever?
