"You're fired," he groaned as he buried his face in my hair. "So fucking fired."
The first time I met Chase Parker, I didn't exactly make a good impression.
I was hiding in the bathroom hallway of a restaurant, leaving a message for my best friend to save me from my awful date.
He overheard and told me I was a bitch, then proceeded to offer me some dating advice.
So I told him to mind his own damn business―his own tall, gorgeous, full-of-himself damn business―and went back to my miserable date.
When he walked by my table, he smirked, and I watched his arrogant, sexy ass walk back to his date.
I couldn't help but sneak hidden glances at the condescending jerk on the other side of the room. Of course, he caught me on more than one occasion, and winked.
When the gorgeous stranger and his equally hot date suddenly appeared at our table, I thought he was going to rat me out.
But instead, he pretended we knew each other and joined us―telling elaborate, embarrassing stories about our fake childhood.
My date suddenly went from boring to bizarrely exciting.
When it was over and we parted ways, I thought about him more than I would ever admit, even though I knew I'd never see him again.
I mean, what were the chances I'd run into him again in a city with eight million people?Then again...
What were the chances a month later he'd wind up being my new sexy boss?
This was so much more than your typical office romance. The banter, the way Ms Keeland stokes that chemistry between Reese & Chase, every second of the build up between them was phenomenal.
He disappeared for a moment and then returned with his wallet, pulling out a strip of condoms and tossing them on the nightstand.
I eyed them. "Big plans?"
He started to undress. "You have no fucking idea."
Chase was a funny motherfucker. He had me chuckling and snort-laughing the whole way through this. I just loved how unique and human he was. I want to gobble him up.
The way we slowly learn about their pasts - Chase & Payton especially, was really moving. I was so invested in both our main characters that I devoured the pages. No snack breaks, no cooking for the famz, just me and my booky wook. I was obsessed with what was happening with this story.
Bit of a love triangle thing going on there, between Reese, Chase and Bryant. It doesn't last for long, hallelujah, but long enough that I didn't like it.
