Former overachiever Lucy Williams sucks at adulting.

Recent divorce, check.

Pending lawsuit, check.

A move back to Boston to live with her mother, triple check.

It can't get much worse, right?

When she starts her new marketing job at EXtreme Effects, she's positive shit’s stopped hitting the fan. Sure, what she's advertising is a little ... unorthodox, but it pays the bills. And since she's seconds away from becoming Lucy Williams: Wednesday Night Bingo Enthusiast, she needs money to get the hell out of her mother’s house.

The only problem is her boss, Mr. Extreme himself: Jace Exley. He’s everything any sane woman dreams of—alpha, successful, ridiculously gorgeous. He's also Lucy’s worst nightmare. Because like every overachiever, she has that underachiever she brushed off. The slacker who, once upon a time ago, was the object of her dirtiest schoolgirl fantasies.

Jace Exley—with his sarcastic smirk and delicious accent—just happens to be that guy.

And the friction between them?

Well, that's the only adulting Lucy seems to be winning at

It's been a while since I've read anything from Emily Snow. And this was an AWESOME way to get back into her writing!!

Jace... Jace... Jace...

Can I just tell you how much I FLOVED Jace. His character was amazing and my fervent wish for this book was that the entire story was told from his POV. Honest. He was that solid. I know my wish may not go over well. I'm sure there are people who loved and appreciated Lucy's POV. Sadly, I'm not one of them. I couldn't stand her. I tried. I tried to get past my issues with her. And while she has many redeeming qualities (i.e. intelligence, morals, a big heart), she rubbed me the wrong way. I'm not saying that prudish people are unacceptable, but her prudishness went to the nth degree! She came off as rude, condescending, judgmental, the already mentioned prudish, etc. Especially when it came to Jace and his business. She quite literally almost ruined this story for me. Thankfully Jace's POV was there to balance things out and save the damn day!

This story was incredibly sexy (and I mean SEXY) and was virtually "un-put-down-able". I'm super excited to see what this author has in store for us next!
