The banter in this book was great, I loved how feisty Emerie was and how she didn't put up Drew's crap. I also loved how Drew was always so crass and loved to put Emerie in her place too!
Drew is a big shot divorce lawyer and Emerie is a psychologist who is fairly new to New York. Emerie "rents" office space that turns out to belong to Drew, who is away while the scammer rents her his office space. When Drew comes back from vacation to check on his renos he finds Emerie and the bantering begins, right from the beginning they click, not in the insta-love kind of way, they just have such a great back and forth, she's down to earth and can hang with the guys and curse like a sailor.
The story was funny, charming, sexy, sweet and I did cry like a baby at the end, that was the sweetest thing EVER!
Definitely one of my fave Vi Keeland stories!
The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office.
I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills.
He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.
Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant.
Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.
Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated.
Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent.
I was swindled out of ten grand.
The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place.
I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind.
I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.
The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages.
The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing.
And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.
