Warning: This book is really steamy and hot.
“Love and hate are visceral. Your stomach twists at the thought of that person. The heart in your chest beats heavy and bright, nearly visible through your flesh and clothes. Your appetite and sleep are schredded. Every interaction spikes your blood with adrenaline, and you’re in the brink of fight or flight. Your body is barely under your control. You’re consumed, and it scares you.
Both love and hate are mirror versions of the same game – and you háve to win. Why? Your heart and your ego.”
Seriously, this book will be something you won’t put down. Or if you listen to the audiobook, which you absolutely should (Kate Schorr is an AMAZING narrator), you won’t be able to push pause. There is more to the, er, steam in the book; there is actual content, I swear.
But there is definetly a lot of adult content, so if you are wary of that kind of a thing, I think maybe you should pick out a different book!
Joshua and Lucy work for the same company. The only difference is each came from different sides of the merger and both are absolutely loathing the other. Things heat up when they are both fighting for the same promotion within the company.. and things escalate pretty quickly for them both within the work place and outside the work place.
I am not one to usually read purely romance books. I usually tell people “nope, not my style” when they recommend them to me. But so many of my book friends were loving this book, that I finally gave in and found the diamond in the rough of romance comedies.
The only thing I can really complain about is how hot Joshua was.
Like Lucy couldn’t shut up about it. She was apparently average and he was some greek-god who worked out twice a day (two different gyms because he’s that typical), smelled better than flipping roses, hair was always stupid-perfect, and of course he could probably carry a house on his back because he is just so strong.
And Lucy liked food but was still cute and adorable and something to look at. The only thing we ever heard about her was the shade of her lipstick, which was apparently so hot that Joshua couldn’t contain himself.
But I liked the slow burn. We all know from the start they are actually in love with each other and don’t actually hate each other, but I love the actual journey of them getting there. They also found a lot out about themselves in the process, which was neat.
I loved this book. Go listen to it.
