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.
In this book we meet Sebastian and George. Two very different people on two seemingly different paths.
Sebastian is a sexy man with a playboy persona, or so he lets people believe. He is actually sweet with a heart of gold.
George is a woman who refuses to be a push over again. At least in the boardroom.
When these two get out of their own way its an epic love story with a slow burn that will leave you smoldering.
I really like how supportive George was of Sebastian. She was there helping him get over a traumatic time in his life. Helping him face his fears and his demons when all he wanted to do was hide. I liked how she still followed her dreams even if that meant giving up the person she loved. She didn't allow anyone to stop her from following her dreams. I love strong female leads like that.
I love how Sebastian really took Georgina's advice to heart and took the leap of faith to be with the woman he loved. The courage that it took for him to take those first steps are swoon worthy. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves sweet love stories that will stick with you long after they lived happily ever after.
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?”
