A new standalone novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Vi Keeland.
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.

I'm not sure if it is because it was an audio book because I pay closet attention to the story or if it is just THAT good. Either way I loved this story and everything about the relationships within the pages. H & h were fantastic together and the relationship between father and son just made me tear up. The performance of the narrators impeccable. All in all close to perfect for me.
"Happy "Gotcha" Day!"
I love coming across a "new to me" author who not only impresses me with a WONDERFUL, well written story, but can hook me with just one story and Vi Keeland did just that! WOW! This was a fun, feel good romance, with a solid plot, and ticked off everything I love in a good audio! I had a BLAST listening too this one! Kudos Vi!
Drew Jagger has become one of my favorite characters. He was complex with all the typical attributes sexy, hot, confident, and arrogant; however, he was also caring, vulnerable and has a teasing personality. All his one-liners were hilarious! I liked his actions were justified by his past and everything he sees and does on a daily basis. You really understood his motives.
Poor Emerie Rose had me cracking up with all her dumb luck! She was so sweet, had a heart of gold and only focused on bringing out the best of everyone; however, she could be a little naïve at times. These two were polar opposites but had a magnetic attraction that pulled them together. He's the divorce lawyer, and she's the marriage counselor. They were a hilarious match!
Their relationship evolved naturally; it wasn't forced, rushed or instant. Not only was their sexual relationship developed but also their friendship. These two went from being strangers to friends then lovers. Vi did an amazing job building their relationship, off the charts chemistry and sexual tension between the characters.The sex scenes were HOT & STEAMY!!!
The writing blew me away! The story had a great flow, the dialogue was clever, witty and had a realistic feel, and each scene had the right amount of description. The reader is not bogged down with too many details.
Andi Arndt and Joe Arden's performance was outstanding! They did an amazing job with all the dialogue between the characters.
Solid five star story and performance! Well worth a credit!
"A Must Read... five ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"
I love these two narrators so much. I didn't know where the story was gonna lead but quickly fell in love with the characters and cried when I thought they wouldn't end up together. The story is well written and perfectly narrated. Like any good written romance novel there is a HEA. 😊 A must read!!!!
"My first Vi Keeland book"
The performance by Joe Arden and Andi Arndt was superb! They really brought the characters to life in realistic and convincing matter.
This was my first Vi Keeland book. As a guy trying to expand my literary horizons, I was somewhat disappointed by the storyline of the book. I felt that the character development was extremely lopsided. The male character (Drew Jagger) is complex, multifaceted, and exhibits a wide emotional range. By contrast, the female character (Emerie Rose) is consistently portrayed as a damsel in distress (with a doctorate degree). A good 75 percent of the storyline focuses on Emerie Rose being rescued or protected in some way. By the first quarter of the book, I could predict her misfortunes and even her responses. The author seemed to give all the emotional depth to Drew Jagger, which would be fine if the book was solely about him and not a romance novel.
I laughed a lot more than I expected. Some aspects of the book took a more serious tone. These moments were mostly related to Drew Jagger's past.
Love these characters so much . I'm never disappointed by the performance of Joe and Andi. This book has started my 2017 read off to an amazing start. This is a must read.
The theme of a bitchy ex with a kid has been done in her books several times. The author may want to try something new. The book started slow and I was about to not finish it, but it picked up rather quickly with the stuff with the son. The ending was not much. However, it was a good read. I would recommend it even though this author's books for me are sometimes questionable.
"AMAZING - FUNNY - WARM - HOT"
Yes, I sure would. This one made you smile, giggle, blush, get warm fuzzies, have a little heartbreak then wrap up to an awesome ending.
Love the outstanding warrant, ice skating, and chemistry between the two.
Both - I have many books read by both of them and they always do an awesome job.
Get ready to laugh, cry and feel your way to love.
I think I am going to start this one over again. Vi Keeland once again blew it out of the park.
Was really funny sexy and romantic. loved the relationship between Drew and Beck. awesome writting.
"Sweet and funny"
I really enjoyed the sweet humor I was giggling most of the night as I listened to the book before bed. That delayed my sleep by 4 hr! But it was worth it. Good narration too very present voices. Oh yes sexy as hell too.
"AWESOME STORY...I LOVE IT"
VERY VERY CUTE...I LOVED IT AND I OFFICIALLY A FAN OF THE AUTHOR AND THE JOE
I was surprised by this one. great storyline and loved the narrators. hot and mushy.
"Fun, Sexy, Easy Read"
This light flirty read was just what I needed, it hit the spot beautifully. I completely fell in love with Drew Jagger (sexy attorney at law) as he assisted Beautiful, naive, small town girl Emerie Rose as she navigated her way around the New York hustle and bustle. After being scammed by a would be realtor, Drew well and truly comes to her rescue in an uncharacteristic move as her offers her some of his office space at no cost. Drew is a divorce attorney, Emerie is a marriage counsel. They are both at opposite enters of the spectrum. They argue non stop, as such, their passion and chemistry are off the charts. Both learning and living with each other's inner most thoughts and fears, and both learning to love and trust in each other. Told in dual POV with some amazing supporting characters along with some emotional and touching scenes this book was a full five star read that I completely got lost in. Fun, sexy, easy read.
Yes definitely. It was great from the beginning and had substance and a good story line. It got your attention straight away and kept it. The narration was brilliant too.
I can't think of one that it is similar too really as its a refreshingly different
Drew and Emery were both awesome but they did the other voices great too
This is the best book I have read in a while and look forward to more from this author. I have to say that i am always tempted by books read by Andi Arndt as she is my favorite female narrator,
Funny and touching.
it's good to have drama in a story that is mainly because of circumstance (real life issues) rather than being shot at or near death experiences.
Lead characters were all round good people,
divorce lawyer and marriage councillor - great match. The story was v. well narrated.
"A wonderful listen"
I really loved this book. The story was well written and performed as always with this amazingly talented author and narrators. 5*
Another brilliant book by Vi Keeland I really love this book , vi Keeland is becoming one of my favourite authors.
"very enjoyable read"
loved every minute of it. Can't wait to listen to it again and again and again.
