Synopsis:Former overachiever Lucy WillIams sucks at adulting.
Recent divorce, check.
Pending lawsuit, check.
A move back to Boston to live with her mother, triple check.
It can't get much worse, right?
When she starts her new marketing job at EXtreme Effects, she's positive shit’s stopped hitting the fan. Sure, what she's advertising is a little ... unorthodox, but it pays the bills. And since she's seconds away from becoming Lucy Williams: Wednesday Night Bingo Enthusiast, she needs money to get the hell out of her mother’s house.
The only problem is her boss, Mr. Extreme himself: Jace Exley. He’s everything any sane woman dreams of—alpha, successful, ridiculously gorgeous. He's also Lucy’s worst nightmare. Because like every overachiever, she has that underachiever she brushed off. The slacker who, once upon a time ago, was the object of her dirtiest schoolgirl fantasies.
Jace Exley—with his sarcastic smirk and delicious accent—just happens to be that guy.
And the friction between them?
Well, that's the only adulting Lucy seems to be winning at.
Move over Lucas Wolfe there is a new cocky, crude, hottie in town and… He’s BRITISH too!!!!! Swoon city!!!!! Watch out ladies Jace Exley is gonna melt your panties and your heart!
This isn’t something we have seen before from Emily. Yes, the cocky, confident hero is something we have seen before. What I’m talking about is the plot and storyline. I was NOT expecting this at all and in a very good way. Emily is surely stretching her wings with this book and traveling into new territory. She made me sit up and flip those pages furiously wondering what was coming next! It was so unexpected and exciting!
Jace is a hero that makes you swoon, and laugh out loud at his antics. He fools Lucy in a way that makes her furious, but their cat and mouse and push and pull is something you will come to cheer for! They really get under each others skin, but in every way, not just physically but mentally and that is what made me laugh.
Jace will stop at nothing to make Ms Perfect Know It All Lucy come out of her shell… His mention of her begin buttoned up is a good way to explain it. For a girl who’s never had sex with the lights on, she sure is the opposite of what Jace is used to. But that doesn’t mean that her body doesn’t make him stand at attention every time she’s in the room. He’s a man that likes to get his hand dirty at both work and play and boy is Lucy in for a shock when she finds out what her new Marketing job is promoting! When Jace hires Lucy he’s sure she will quit as soon as she realizes what the job is. But unfortunately his plan backfires in the sexiest ways possible!
I’m telling you I loved Jace and Lucy from the very beginning, the build up and the sexual tension will make you read faster to get to the moment where they finally give in to all their desires. But like every book, the path isn’t without some bumps in the road and Lucy makes a mistake that she can’t undo! This was the only place where I truly wanted a little more from the story. I would have liked to see a little more from Jace’s side when the proverbial shit hits the fan.
Overall this story stands out as one of my favorite reads from Emily! She’s back ya’ll and she’s writing with more passion then I’ve seen from her in previous books. Her words at times slay me open and heat me up! I cannot wait to see what happens next! I have a feeling that she left us with a big opening for another book with the supporting characters and if it’s anything like I think it will be…. In the famous words of my friend Trish… HOLLA!!!!!
Pick up this one today, I swear you won’t be sorry! Jace and Lucy will quickly make it to the top of your favorite book couples list, and they might just heat up the sheets for you!
