When the person who should have been the best man at your wedding is the man your ex-fiancé listened to before breaking off your engagement, he’s not exactly the most welcome person in your life! In fact Elena Mason likens Lucas Albright III to the spawn of Voldermort, for his role in the break up. When he turns up at the chalet she’s gone to stay in to get away from everyone, she really wants to get away from him asap! However, this fateful encounter results in him needing her to work with him, using her artistic talents for a promotion he’s involved with . . . . Can he convince her to work with him? What will happen when they stop fighting the attraction that’s building between them? Does she really want to get back with her ex?

This is a fun, quirky, contemporary romance that had me laughing out loud at times. It is well written with great characters who develop in their relationship and self knowledge as the story progresses. How on earth she could think her ex was such a great potential husband I have no idea – love definitely was blind with that one! This is a lovely read, one where the heroine sets out hating the hero before he manages to romance her! It is a sweet contemporary romance that I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone who enjoys this genre, mind you I also recommend they check out other books by this author as she’s written some fantastic reads IMHO!

I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.


Hopeless romantic Elena Mason doesn’t often hate people, but she hates her ex-fiancé’s insufferable best man, Lucas Albright III. She just knows Lucas is the one who talked her ex out of getting married—so Lucas is clearly the cause of all her problems.

And now she’s expected to work with him? Oh, heck no.

Lucas Albright wants nothing more than to make partner at his advertising firm, and he knows he works best alone. But then Elena ends up as his partner on an account that could win him a promotion. He had a great reason to end her engagement, not that she’d ever believe him. Still, he’s willing to try working as a team.

Unfortunately, his new “partner” wants him dead.

Elena knows she’s going to have to give in and work with her nemesis, though nobody said it had to be easy for him. But what happens when fighting starts feeling a whole lot like falling in love?
