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.
Egomaniac might just be the best book I've read so far this year. This book seriously has everything. It's hilarious, sexy, with the kind of twist that I just die for and it kept me on the edge of my seat. Plus the sassy heroine and jerky but not really jerky hero were perfect!
Emery had just moved to NYC and was setting up her new office space when a sexy intruder made her realize that she'd been conned. Instead of getting a really good deal on the perfect place to meet with her marriage counseling clients, she's actually inhabiting divorce lawyer Drew Jagger's newly remodeled office space. While Drew might be the anti to everything Emery believes in, she finally catches a break when Drew takes a shine to her. Drew helps her through her debacle and allows her to share his office until she can find something else. These two polar opposites: Drew, bitter and angry, and Emery, hopeful and sweet, build a relationship neither expects. And through their friendship, the sexual tension between them builds and sparks fly.
I seriously loved everything about this book. From the first word to the last, I was captivated. I laughed out loud. I swooned. I felt all the feels. And I was held hostage by the build up of both their stories. Told in alternating points of view as well as a few before and after bits, Vi Keeland wrote a story that I couldn't get enough of. And if nothing else, that cover is HOT could sell this book all on its own.
