EGOMANIAC
by Vi Keeland


Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00072]


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 received a copy in exchange for an honest review!


What I say: EGOMANIAC is latest contemporary romance from the lovely Vi Keeland (see sassy lady hiding behind book below - tee hee). 

Be prepared to laugh with this one! I laughed *ahem* snorted my way through Drew's one-liners and reading about Emerie's exploits (ladylike as always).

Psychologist Emerie's time in her new swanky New York office is interrupted when a handsome but rude stranger breaks in. Unfortunately for Emerie, the stranger Drew is the real owner of the office and she's been conned out of 10 grand! Ouch! Divorce lawyer Drew is initially unimpressed to find Em in his office but is charmed by her determination and sassy charm and finds himself offering to share the rooms - very out of character for this egomaniac. Their intense mutual attraction goes a long way towards the offer...

Drew is uncharacteristically sweet to Em and I really loved the slow build in their friendship. Drew's innuendos and smutty come-ons made me laugh, but I really enjoyed seeing them support and look after each other. 

I have to admit that Drew isn't the complete arse I was expecting - yes he's cynical but with good reason (don't worry no spoilers here), but he's also considerate (bubble bath anyone?) and caring. I loved seeing him with his family and friends. There were times when I wanted to give Drew an award for epic stupidity but I did understand his motivations even if I didn't agree with them!

In other news I really didn't like Baldwin but we're not meant to - ugh! I really couldn't see the attraction there.

The adult scenes are definitely erm... adult but not too frequent - there's lots of fun and dramatic plot lines. I had Moves Like Jagger in my head throughout these sections.

4 Stars in my Sky!
