Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 28, 2018
There’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.
At the stadium’s concession stand, I took a tall stool, putting Georgina and I at eye level since she stood. “So, why didn’t you kiss François?” I asked. “Bad breath?”
She gasped into her hand. “My breath is fine.”
“I meant his. I’m sure yours is pure relish on a hotdog.”
She made a face. “Gross.”
“I happen to love relish,” I said. “But does François?”
Each time I said François with flourish, she flinched. I didn’t care. Something about him bugged me—I just couldn’t put my finger on it.
“We didn’t kiss because you interrupted us,” she pointed out.
“So? If I were in his position, and we both wanted that kiss, I wouldn’t let anyone stop me.”
“Frank and I are clicking,” she said, scowling. “There was even mention of spending time at his summerhouse.”
She coughed into her fist. “Boca Raton.”
The idea of Georgina spending a summer with him in Boca Raton was tragic enough that I almost smiled. I got the sense she was playing up the date. If it was so great, why wasn’t she sitting here with him? And why was I more relieved than smug about that? “Meanwhile, Justin and I will be clamming in Montauk.”
“You two should really just make it official and announce your love to the world.”
“But then I wouldn’t get to flirt with pretty girls.”
“For someone who pretends to have as much game as you,” she said, “I still haven’t seen you successfully flirt with any girls since I’ve known you.”
I smirked. “How do you know I’m not flirting with you right now?”
This book is perfection..the tension, the banter and the healing that happens in this book is just really,really well written. Sebastian and Georgina are just amazing together. They might not have had the best meet cute but given the circumstances, it was what was expected. These two have some hurdles to jump. Sebastian,is reeling from grief and the anniversary of the death. He hasn't came to terms with it. He is also the master at his job but he gets a rude awakening when Georgina comes into his work place. This is like a whole bunch of men who never grew up and really have no need for it but make a really good magazine. Things are changing though. Georgina, is complex character. She has two personas. One is George. She is a take charge, no nonsense business woman. She comes in takes charge and turns the business around. Her other one is obviously Georgina. She has been put down mentally and her self confidence is low. She knows she needs to speak out but chooses not to. With Sebastian and the guys, she is put out of her comfort zone and given challenges to accomplish. She grows as a person and eventually comes out of her shell. She also has this ability to push Sebastian to see things a little different. He needs to come to terms on something and heal. She helps him do that. This was such a fun book to read and I found myself falling in love with these characters! I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is questioning whether or not to read it or not.
