Blurb

It started out like any other morning on the train.

Until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle.

He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world.

Who did the stuck-up suit think he was…God?

Actually, he looked like a God. That was about it.

When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out.

I might have picked it up.

I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers.

I might have held onto the mystery man’s phone for days—until I finally conjured up the courage to return it.

When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me.

So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk’s office.

I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first though. 

I didn’t expect him to text back.

I didn’t expect our exchanges to be hot as hell.

I didn’t expect to fall for him—all before we even met.

The two of us couldn’t have been any more different. 

Yet, you know what they say about opposites.

When we finally came face to face, we found out opposites sometimes do more than attract—we consumed each other.

Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for where I’d wind up when the ride was over.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.


Excerpt

Outside of the restaurant, Graham’s black car was already curbside. He must have had it waiting and called the driver when I went to the restroom.

“If you’re not going to come home with me, I insist on at least giving you a ride home to your place.”

“The subway is right around the corner. I’m good.”

He shot me an annoyed glance. “Give a little, Soraya. It’s a ride home, not a ride on my cock. And I think you know by now that I’m not a serial killer.”

“You’re so crass.”

He put his hand on the small of my back and steered me to the waiting open car door. I didn’t put up a fight. Graham was right, I was being stubborn while he had pretty much agreed to anything I demanded. Something told me it was a rare occasion when the man was this flexible.

When we arrived at my apartment, Graham walked me to the door.

“When will I see you again?”

“Well, tomorrow is Saturday, so I suppose maybe Monday on the train.”

“Have dinner with me again tomorrow?”

“I have plans.”

His jaw flexed. “With whom?”

We embarked into a lengthy stare off. His gaze was hard. When neither of us gave for a few minutes, he grumbled Christ under his breath, and before I realized what was happening, my back was against the door, and his mouth was on mine.

He kissed me as if he wanted to eat me alive. Before releasing my mouth, he took my lower lip between his teeth and tugged. Hard. With his lips vibrating up against mine, he spoke. “Don’t push me to my limit, Soraya.”

“Why? What will happen?”

“I’ll push back. And I’m trying not to do that with you.”

He was being honest, and I realized I should appreciate that. “To my sister’s house. It’s my niece’s birthday party. That’s where I’m going tomorrow night.

He nodded. “Thank you.”

It took every bit of my willpower to go inside and shut the door behind me. I leaned my back against the door, unable to remember the last time I was so hot and bothered. Maybe not ever. His mouth was sinful; the thought of what he could do with that wicked tongue other places on my body kept me in a state of arousal that bordered on frenzied. But it was more than that. The way he was so dominating and controlling, yet exercised restraint to respect my wishes, was the sexiest thing I’d ever seen. The man stimulated something that had been sleeping inside of me. I needed a glass of wine and an orgasm. Not necessarily in that order. If I was going be firm on my stance that we get to know each other and not have sex, then taking things into my own hands was absolutely essential.

In my bedroom, I stripped out of my clothes. I didn’t sleep naked every night, but tonight was definitely a bare evening. As I slipped into bed, my cell rang.

“Is phone sex on the table?” Graham’s voice was a needy rasp. Whatever cooling off my body had done since I left him on the other side of the door was instantly reheated. His voice could definitely speed things up for me. But…

“Sex is off the table. That should probably include all types of sex. Intercourse, oral, phone.”

He groaned. “Oral. God, I want to taste you. And feel that metal tongue ring on my cock. You have no idea how difficult it was to control myself tonight every time I caught a glimpse of that metal when you spoke. It’s like you’re taunting me with every word. What are you wearing, Soraya?”

That voice. I needed to record him saying What are you wearing, Soraya? So I could play it over and over again in a loop when I needed to satisfy my own needs. “I’m actually not wearing anything. I just got undressed and slipped into bed.”

“You sleep naked?”

“Sometimes.”

He actually growled. “Touch yourself.”

“I plan to. But I think I’m going to need both hands tonight. So I’m going to hang up first.”

“How long do you plan on driving me crazy, Soraya?”

“Good night, Graham.” I hung up without waiting for him to respond. Even though my body physically ached for the man, I wasn’t ready to open that door with him just yet. Although as I glided my hand down my body alone in my bed, the only thing I could think of was God, I wish it was his hand.


My Review 

Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward are pure genius together. They have written literary gold not once with Cocky Bastard, but twice with their follow up standalone Stuck-Up Suit. There was not one thing I didn't LOVE about this book. It was hilarious, steamy, witty, twisty and swoon-worthy. I fell in love with Soraya from the very first page and with Graham soon after. They were perfectly different and watching Graham meet his match in Soraya was a sight to behold. I have a huge cheesy grin on my face while writing this and I finished the book a week ago. It will definitely be one that I reread and it goes straight to my favorites list.

Soraya is an assistant to the advice columnist Dear Ida. While her advice is usually the sarcastic and blunt opposite of Ida's, she stays at her dreary day job to make ends meet. One day on the train into work, she runs into a guy who looks wholly out of place in his designer outfit and air of superiority. After a brief interaction with him, it's obvious that guy is a first class rich prick. But when said rich prick drops his phone, Soraya picks it up with the intention of returning it. But first she has to snoop a little (okay a lot) to find out who he is. Two days later after interfering just a bit in his life, she returns the phone to find that he's even jerkier than she thought. Leaving him with a parting gift on his phone, she never expects to hear from him again. 

Graham has built his own empire and does his best to keep people at arms length with a demanding and oftentimes cruel attitude. He's been broken twice and he refuses to let anyone close enough to have that happen again. But after listening to Soraya blast his terrible personality (something no one has ever done before) and seeing her parting gift, he can't get the firecracker out of his head. Things, especially women, come easily to Graham but Soraya makes him work for it and he finds himself completely enchanted. 

From page one to the very last word, I was as spellbound with Graham and Soraya and they were with each other. Their struggle to hold their independence but realizing just how much they wanted and needed each other left for delicious banter and witty repartee. I smiled and laughed my way through their getting-to-know-you's and their putting-you-in-your-place's. They were complete opposites in most ways but it just worked beautifully. But just like with any work from Vi and Penelope, the unexpected happened and the feels hit me right in the chest. As the story progressed, it all felt real and completely honest which made me fall in love with them and their characters that much more.

I could not have asked for a better story from these two. We even got a glimpse from the characters in Cocky Bastard which left me laughing and smiling like a lunatic. The bit of angst, the true love story and the gorgeous ending made this maybe the best book I've read from either of these two ladies to date and I am so excited to see what they come up with next.
