New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan continues her
sexy new contemporary stand-alone series with an enemies-to-lovers office
Paris Trissel is in a dating rut. Despite the
pact she made with her friends to find someone to share her life with, she’s
throwing in the towel after only a few blind dates. Add in the fact that the
new hire at the job she used to love happens to be the Brady brother she can’t
stand, and Paris is having a terrible year.
Prior Brady’s life seems pretty perfect from
the outside. He has a wonderful, caring girlfriend, a family he’s never been
closer to, and a new job he can’t wait to sink his teeth and talents into. Too
bad the woman he has to work with for hours a day hates him on sight.
Once the two are forced to find the balance
between chemistry and temptation, however, they’ll realize they’re stronger
together than apart. Except when Paris’s past comes back with a vengeance,
bringing terror, pain, and horror with it, both she and Prior will have to lean
on each other.
I have become so addicted to these spin off series. I knew from Cross & Hazel’s story that this series was going to be amazing, and so far, I’m not wrong!!!
I really love a good enemies to lovers story. I love how there was this instant distaste and tension between Paris and Prior, much to Priors chagrin. This start to their tale was so awesome. It made for the perfect opening to a complicated relationship between the two of them. Add in their explosive chemistry and the slow burn we are tortured with, it was pretty epic. And of course it can’t be easy. Carrie Ann put in some awesome villainesque characters to put a damper on things a few times. We also get some really hysterical blind dates and crazy ex’s.
Other than the chemistry, I LOVED seeing the family and friends together! The Brady men are so close and the ladies even closer. Seeing this group together was super heart warming. Also, I LOVED the little bits of tension between those not paired, it is giving us THE BEST taste for the future!
My only complaint about this whole store, was the extreme drama. All of Carrie Ann’s books have this, but this one was way more on the obvious side. I like an extra level of suspense, but this one was almost an eye roll moment for me. BUT, that did NOT ruin this book in any way. I still give it 4 stars because I was absolutely addicted beginning to end!
