Source: AuthorThere’s a thin line between love and hate . . . and it cuts right through the middle of their office.
Bad boys? They run right over good girls like Georgina Keller. But after a confidence-shattering breakup, she’s determined not to let anyone at her new workplace push her around—least of all the brooding creative director, a “bad boy of publishing” who’s made it clear she’s enemy #1.
Sebastian Quinn's taste for fast cars, late nights, and beautiful women may have gotten him to the top of a leading New York magazine, but the reputation that made him is suddenly threatening to end his career.
Georgina can help Modern Man shed its bad reputation, but in order to do that, she’ll have to start at the top—and no amount of rakish charm or inconvenient attraction will distract her.
Because if Sebastian gets her right where he wants her, it means she’s going down.
I've only read one other book by Jessica Hawkins and I really enjoyed it, but it was a forbidden angsty romance. I was excited to read something more fun from her and couldn't wait to see how this office romance would turn out!
Sebastian Quinn is good at his job as creative director at Modern Man. So what if sales have slipped and people are questioning the reputation of the men who work there? They're doing fine and definitely don't need the infuriatingly gorgeous Georgina Keller coming in to "fix" things. Georgina is tired of being run over in relationships and tries her best to be the confident person she is at work. When Sebastian Quinn is determined to give her a hard time, Georgian won't back down. The two clash at work, but the lines blur between hate and love very quickly.
From the start of this, I loved how much Sebastian and Quinn did not like each other. Sure they were attracted to each other, but they sure did get on each other's nerves and didn't want to back down against the other one. Office romances are my favorite and I loved how they had to constantly be around each other at work and dance around their attraction while constantly arguing. Also, the other guys in the office were awesome, especially Justin, and I want more of them!
As for the romance, I was swooning so hard over Sebastian and how charming he was when he wanted to be. I mean, seriously?? He knows how to woo a woman! I was laughing out loud and awwwwwing over so many scenes in this book! There were also so many adorable dogs in this book and I loved how realistic of a dog mom Georgina was.
Overall, if you want an adorable enemies to lovers office romance, you HAVE to pick this up! This ended up being one of my favorite romances of 2018 and I already want to revisit these characters. This was just the romance I wanted at the time and I couldn't recommend it more!
