From New York Times Bestseller, Vi Keeland, comes a sexy newstandalone novel.
The first time I met Chase Parker, I didn’t exactly make a good impression.
I was hiding in the bathroom hallway of a restaurant, leaving a message for my best friend to save me from my awful date.
He overheard and told me I was a bitch, then proceeded to offer me some dating advice.
So I told him to mind his own damn business―his own tall, gorgeous, full-of-himself damn business―and went back to my miserable date.
When he walked by my table, he smirked, and I watched his arrogant, sexy ass walk back to his date.
I couldn’t help but sneak hidden glances at the condescending jerk on the other side of the room. Of course, he caught me on more than one occasion, and winked.
When the gorgeous stranger and his equally hot date suddenly appeared at our table, I thought he was going to rat me out.
But instead, he pretended we knew each other and joined us―telling elaborate, embarrassing stories about our fake childhood.
My date suddenly went from boring to bizarrely exciting.
When it was over and we parted ways, I thought about him more than I would ever admit, even though I knew I’d never see him again.
I mean, what were the chances I’d run into him again in a city with eight million people?Then again…
What were the chances a month later he’d wind up being my new sexy boss?
Oh, how good it was to finally read a spot-on hilarious new adult novel?! Most NA books are rather heavy and emotional, and I just needed a break. This on was particularly lightweight and just right.
You could tell just from the beginning that this book is going to be a fun ride. The story started off with Reese Annesley who left a voicemail to her bestfriend about her terrible date, and that she needs rescue, STAT! Well, let’s just say that there was this hot guy that happened to eavesdrop on her phone call, unknowingly would become her hero of the night, aka Chase Parker. *swoon* and my, oh my, this man was such eye candy!
Reese was smart and undeniably passionate with everything she does. She loves her work so much, and gives it her all. She tried her best to be professional when it comes to Chase, and I respected her for that! Other than that, I had several issues with her, but it wasn’t too grave. She can have a bit of immature tendencies, but overall she was a well developed character.
Chase… oh boy, this man’s the total package! Hot for brains, yes, he’s incredibly smart, sensitive, and a gentleman in his own way! Sure, he looks like some hot alpha-male but he’s sweet and tender inside. He’s much more than that. He has such a strong personality that makes his appearance seem like a bonus. Funny, driven, and low-key down to earth! I need myself a Chase Parker!
The whole plot wasn’t entirely something new, but I still enjoyed it. I genuinely loved the fact that there were only a few heavy moments and a handful of comedy and laughter!
Vi Keeland’s writing made it effortless to get into, which made this book even easier to read! I would definitely recommend this to anyone that’s looking for a light new adult novel to read. Like a breather for heavy/dramatic NA books!
