WHY I READ IT
The blurb had me hooked. Keeland writes such charismatic characters, I fall in love with everything!
WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
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 is a story that hooks you with a great blurb, and never lets you go. I started this book during my lunch period at school, and just never stopped. I couldn’t put it down. I read the entire book on my phone because I couldn’t be bothered to walk upstairs when I came home, and get my kindle. That’s how good it is.
I read while helping my kids with their homework.
I read while folding laundry.
I read while making dinner.
I read, and read, and read, until there were no words left to read.
Then I wanted to go back to the start and read it again.
Drew and Emerie meet when he catches her breaking into his office. Only, Emerie thinks it’s her new office. The banter from their very first exchange showed me just how excellent this story was going to be. Drew was witty and sarcastic, and Emerie gave it back just as good. While they started out as just office mates and friends, you could see the chemistry between the two of them was too hot to ignore. Every time one of them looked at the other, it was scorching. Throw in Drew’s flirting, you knew there was no way Emerie was going to hold out.
I love that Drew, while a previous ladies man, but not a sleazy one, saw what he had in Emerie. He was incredibly sweet to her, and he said and did all the right things. I was a swoony mess for Drew. Emerie was such a great character, too. Being how she found her way to Drew’s office, you might think she was naive, but she’s not. She’s brilliant and charismatic. She lights up a room, and she was the perfect complement to Drew’s sometimes cantankerous personality. This book is going to give you all the feels.
ALL OF THEM!
It’s low on the drama, high on the laughs, and just perfectly done. Keeland never disappoints! There is just so much goodness in this story! It’s the kind of story I wish I could experience again for the first time.
