Author: Nina Crespo
Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
Where I got it: ARC from Netgalley
Sophie Jordan dreams about hooking up with Nicolas “King” Kingman—the gorgeous CEO of her company—but as her boss, he’ll always remain out of reach. King knows he isn’t built for happily-ever-afters and only indulges in brief romantic encounters. But when Sophie agrees to fill in as his last-minute date to a charity gala, an unexpected discovery quickly escalates their platonic relationship to one of passion.
King is determined to ignore their attraction and, feeling betrayed, Sophie severs ties with him and the company. Everything changes, however, when he’s injured in an accident, and Sophie agrees to help until he closes a major deal. Unfortunately, he’s developed amnesia, and although he doesn’t remember their night together, desire binds them in ways they can’t resist.
Time is running out on closing the deal, as well as Sophie moving on to her new career. Will King deny love in favor of winning and lose Sophie forever?
I received an ARC of this book for an honest review.
Hmmm. Girls sleeps with her boss. Boss wants to go back to the way things were. Girl gives her two week notice due to embarrassment. Pretty much sums up this book.
Sophie has crushed on her boss, Nic Kingman, who goes by King (ok) for two years. After his flavor of the week cancels on him the night of a charity gala, King asks Sophie to go with him and does what any millionaire would do – calls his friend who owns a boutique and gets her all glammed up for the ball.
Things take a turn for the serious at the ball, and King and Sophie end up hooking up. They go back to the work the next day and act like nothing happened. King then gets on his private jet to go somewhere and it’s in an accident, and he loses some of his memory – HE DOES NOT HAVE AMNESIA.
I’ve seen this book billed as a rom-com and it’s not. Not even close. I didn’t laugh one time, or find one scene funny. King is kind of an aloof jerk to Sophie, and she keeps coming back for more. Their relationship was pretty f’ed up.
King also had a strange, f’ed up relationship with his father that didn’t make a whole lot of sense.
Overall, this wasn’t a great book and I wouldn’t recommend it.
