I loved the premise of this book, and I was super exciting to see how this book was going to play out. As I was reading this book, I found myself laughing out loud at the banter between Andrea and Blake. The banter was geeky and quick witted, which is my favorite type of banter! Andrea and Blake also had a lot of steamy chemistry that made my kindle feel hot in my hands.
What I really liked about the main character, Andrea, was that she had a lot of backbone and spunk. She would always speak her mind, and I thought that was really refreshing. I also enjoyed how witty Andrea whenever she would get into a fight with someone, mainly Blake. What I didn't like about Andrea was that she sometimes came off as rude and brash.
Blake was definitely a hot alpha male, and I enjoyed that very much.
Blake was hot, but he was also a closet geek, which I adored. It was so cute seeing Blake's geek side come out with Andrea. However, it took a very long time for me to warm up to Blake. He was an annoying jerk in the beginning of the book. He would said such crude things that I wanted to punch him. At some points in the book, I did not think I would ever like him. I am glad he had a lot of character development, but I still can't get over how rude he was in the beginning.
I think I would have also enjoyed the book a little bit more if it was not revealed right away that both Blake and Andrea were extremely attracted to each other right away. I wish they had fought their feelings a little bit more, because I think it would have made the book a little more exciting. However, the romance was still cute and passionate, so I am grateful for that!
Overall, I thought this book was a fun and light read. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a fun contemporary romance to read. I am looking forward to reading more books by this author!
3 / 5 Fangs
Andrea Dawson is in desperate need of a job. Her background is in marketing. On her last job she lost it all when she didn't become intimate with her old boss. When her sister points her towards an opportunity she could be good at it, she's forced to look into it. Feeling attracted to the boss is not what she was expecting.
Blake Donovan is lonely. He wants a wife. He just doesn't have the time to look for one. His job is demanding. Hiring someone to provide candidates for him to pick a wife, sounded good on paper.
When he meets Andrea, she is everything he doesn't want in a wife. He wants someone quiet, who doesn't want to work and won't mind cooking and staying at home.
So why does fighting with Andrea brings him more joy than he has had in a long time??
This was a cute story. Blake, being the closet geek he really was, made me fall in love with him. A guy who can keep "Puppy" can make me like him regardless of how much of a chauvinistic pig he can appear in the beginning.
It was harder for me to like Andrea. For someone who needed a job so desperately, she sure waited a while to find any type of job. Only when her sister tells her, she can't afford to maintain both of them is when she starts looking for something.
I did love their sparring and banter and I laughed during their fights.
For the most part, I enjoyed the book.
