From bestselling author L.J. Shen, comes a new standalone, enemies-to-lovers romance.

Célian Laurent.Manhattan royalty.Notorious playboy.Heir to a media empire....And my new boss.

I could have impressed him, if not for last month's unforgettable one-night stand.I left it with more than orgasms and a pleasant memory--namely, his wallet.Now he's staring me down like I'm the dirt under his Italian loafers, and I'm supposed to take it.But the thing about being Judith "Jude" Humphry is I have nothing to lose.Brooklyn girl.Infamously quirky.Heir to a stack of medical bills and a tattered couch.When he looks at me from across the room, I see the glint in his eyes, and that makes us rivals.He knows it.So do I. Every day in the newsroom is a battle.Every night in his bed, war.But it's my heart at stake, and I fear I'll be raising the white flag.

“You’re playing with fire,” I warned. Her hand crawled up, touching my mouth, her thumb hovering over my lower lip, tracing the seams, reminding me of three weeks ago.

“Maybe I want to get burned.”

 

 

Review:
I have a strong love for the ass hole, smart ass, take no shit, alpha hero. I love it when they don’t go “soft” when they fall for the girl. I love it when they are so sarcastic and blunt. It’s like myself but in the male form. Not that I’m an alpha or anything like that LMAO but I’m sarcastic, smart ass, take no shit and blunt. I love it when the guy can give it as good as I give it, basically I’m Jude because she did that and kept him on his toes. It’s really hot foreplay for me. Célian was everything I love in a book boyfriend and Jude was everything I love in a heroine. Together they will probably be one of my all time favorite couples – ever.

I laughed so many times and I was not expecting the humor in this book. Whether it was supposed to be funny or not, I literally laughed my ass off. The chemistry was so on point it was everything and then some. Honestly, this book surprised me. I knew it would be good because L.J. Shen wrote it but I didn’t expect it to be this clever, this sassy, this phenomenal. This will be a book I come back to again and again. Definitely in my top books of the year list.
