Nova Lane is having the worst week possible. Her latest relationship ended while on her much-needed vacation, then upon her first day back at work, she learns that her beloved boss has quit – and despite having worked so hard for it, she's not being considered for his position.
Who is being considered for the position is none other than Kessler Rocha. Her ex-coworker and ex-lover, Kessler’s the man who broke her heart five years earlier and the reason she moved thousands of miles away, switched jobs, and created numerous voodoo dolls in Kessler’s (very burly, very handsome) liking.
Yup. Worst week ever.
New in town and on her turf, Kessler promises he’s not the same man he was – and considering he’s now a single father to a precocious toddler, he’s telling the truth.
But he’s still an arrogant, devilish and dangerously intelligent man who’s taking over the position Nova feels she deserves. The fact that he’s gotten even more sexy over the years doesn’t help either.
Now Nova and Kessler have the choice to let bygones be bygones, or fight with each other every chance they get, with unresolved sexual tension only adding fuel to the flames, creating a fire that might just burn down the whole office.
In the corporate world they say it’s just business, nothing personal.
Nova and Kessler are about to show just how personal things can get.
It’s just business, nothing personal.
Until you have to work with your ex.
Nothing Personal, an all-new standalone romantic comedy by New York Times Bestselling author Karina Halle is live!
“It took losing you once to know that I won’t lose you again. Just…tell me that you at least aloha me.”
Nothing Personal is a witty and fun second chance and office romance that will keep you laughing and make you swoon.
Nova Lane never forgot about the man that broke her heart five years ago. She’s tried to move on, even trying to go for the “safe” option, which only backfires. Her life is a mess right now but her job is her constant. Back from a crap vacation, she’s ready to get back at it. Only problem, her boss has left and she’s told that instead of getting his job she’s getting her ex Kessler Rocha as her new boss. Talk about a slap in the face.
When Kessler shows up, it brings back all the emotions that were there before but Nova’s goal is to avoid him unless it work related. Problem with that is that life happens and Kessler and his son are now fully engrained into her life and it’s hard not to fall for him again, even if she desperately wants to protect her heart.
The banter between Nova and Kessler are absolutely is absolutely my favorite thing about this book with the chicken coming in at a close second. Yeah, you read that right. THE CHICKEN. If you’ve ever been to Hawaii you know exactly what Halle is talking about when she wrote in the chicken.
Both Kessler and Nova are different people then they were five years ago and it’s clear that they are meant for each other. We get to enjoy the show while these two fall in love. It will make you laugh, make your heart skip a beat and overall consume you. It’s a very fast read that is easily devour-able in one sitting.
