Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Heartwarming Office #Romance – Hot Desk by Zara Stoneley – Learning to say no and mean it!!

Same desk, different days.

A post-it note is just the beginning…

Alice loves her job and wants to keep it – whatever the price. But then she’s told the company is switching to flexible working and hot desking…Alice’s desk might look a mess, but she knows exactly where everything is. Or she did. Until she found out she’s going to share it with the most annoying guy in the office.
 
Jamie can work from anywhere. He’s quite happy to sweep his work life into a box at the end of the working day. But can sharing a desk with Alice be as much fun as teasing her in person?
 
With no option but to try it and see, will their relationship turn into open warfare or will it ever progress beyond a post-it note?

My Review:

Thank you to One More Chapter and NetGalley, too
For my copy of this book, here's my honest review:

This is a contemporary, post two COVID lockdowns, romance
In which returning to work in the office has Alice in a dance.
She's struggled working in her house share flat
Where nothing is private, she's fed up of that.

She's looking forward to having her own desk again
Where all her pieces have their place to keep her sane.
However, there are changes coming that'll impact how
They're going to be working in future from now.

Instead of having their own place and desk this change
Means they'll share desks so things need a rearrange.
How can she share her space with the most annoying guy
Just who selected him to be her partner - and why?

Jamie can work anywhere, any place
His desk never looks like Alice's - hers is a disgrace!
But once the new routine starts
His teasing post it notes help win her heart.

As Alice learns to set boundaries for friends and her sister
She's having problems galore with her ex-mister.
Can she learn to set boundaries that others respect, too?
How will this affect her life and what she can do?

This is a delightful story with humour and fun
As well as some serious life lessons when all is said and done.
There are consequences that need sorting but, given the chance,
There are opportunities, too, for heartwarming romance!

Author Bio –

USA Today bestselling author Zara Stoneley was born in a small village in the UK. She wanted to be a female James Herriot, a spy, or an author when she grew up.

After many (many) years, and many different jobs, her dream of writing a bestseller came true, and more than half a million copies of her books have now been sold worldwide.

She writes about friendship, dreams, love, and happy ever afters, and hopes that her tales make you laugh a lot, cry a little, and occasionally say ‘ahhh’.

Zara now lives in a Cheshire village with her family, a lively cockapoo, a cocker spaniel puppy and a very bossy (and slightly evil) cat.
