Leading with one of the most memorable meet cutes I’ve read was the PERFECT introduction to this new-to-me author’s work. I’m jumping into the series with the final book, and I am just fine with that – this was easy to read as a standalone, and such steamy, tension-filled fun that it kept me turning the pages. These two have sparks flying between them from the first moment they meet, and the forbidden office dynamic that followed kept the tension ratcheted up. Plus, this hero is a genuinely nice guy who is not afraid of a commitment, and I loved his determination to get more than one night with his girl. There was perhaps a bit of a lull in the middle, but that’s really my only complaint about this low angst, spicy treat – it was exactly what I was in the mood for when I started reading.
The story follows Charlize, a woman who got her heart broken a year ago. She’s been traveling the world ever since, and has only temporarily returned to her home base. So when she meets a sexy stranger at a wedding – in a very awkward way – he throws a wrench in her plans. Owen is the kind of guy Charlize knows to stay away from, but there’s something about him that draws her closer. And when they share one heat-filled night together, Charlize is not sure that she’ll be able to keep her distance. But both Charlize and Owen are thrown for a loop when they discover that Charlize will be temporarily working at the business he owns – for his ex-wife, no less. Surely they can keep their hands off each other while Charlize is working in the office… right?
I really had no idea what to expect going into this, but the hysterical, heat-filled meet cute convinced me that I was in for a great read. The chemistry between these two is SUPER obvious, and that first steamy scene was certainly fan-worthy. I loved that Owen worked so hard to win Charlize over; he knew that someone amazing had stumbled into his life, and he was not willing to let her go. And I also thought the office situation was pretty unique – Owen works with his ex-wife, and he’s trying to be respectful towards her. I kept worrying that there was going to be a ton of drama there, and I was very relieved to discover that wasn’t the case. That’s the only part of the story that dragged a little for me, but I also loved the playfulness and flirty moments. It’s not the kind of story that digs deep or gets heavy, but it was just the kind of light and sexy office romance I wanted.

I started with the final book in the series, lol, but now I’m going to need to go back to the beginning – especially since that book was just released on audio! This was easy to read as a standalone though.
From USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Nina Levine comes a standalone, opposites attract, billionaire romance.
Ashton Scott is not my type.
He’s arrogant and presumptuous, and way too bossy for me.
The man is persistent, though. Nothing stops him when he decides he wants something, and he’s decided he wants to buy my building.
He’s also decided he wants me.
And like I said, when Ashton Scott wants something, nothing stops him.
He’s sexy AF.
He wears a suit like nobody’s business.
And his bossiness turns me on in ways I can’t understand.
But I’m not going down without a fight.
Or at least, I wasn’t.
It turns out my fight is what Ashton loves the most.
