Publisher's Summary

"Dominic was staring at me like he couldn’t decide whether to chop me into pieces or pull my hair and French kiss me."

Dominic

I got her fired. Okay, so I’d had a bad day and took it out on a bystander in a pizza shop. But there’s nothing innocent about Ally Morales. She proves that her first day of her new job in my office, after being hired by my mother.

So, maybe, her colorful, annoying, inexplicably alluring personality brightens up the magazine’s offices that have felt like a prison for the past year. Maybe, I like that she argues with me in front of the editorial staff. And maybe, my after-hours fantasies are haunted by those brown eyes and that sharp tongue.

But that doesn’t mean that I’m going to be the next Russo man to take advantage of his position. I might be a second-generation asshole, but I am not my father. She’s working herself to death at half a dozen dead-end jobs for some secret reason she doesn’t feel like sharing with me. And I’m going to fix it all.

Don’t accuse me of caring. She’s nothing more than a puzzle to be solved. If I can get her to quit, I can finally peel away all those layers. Then I can go back to salvaging the family name and forget all about the dancing, beer-slinging brunette.

Ally

Ha! Hold my beer, Grumpy Grump Face.

Author’s note: A steamy, swoony workplace romantic comedy with a grumpy boss hero determined to save the day and a plucky heroine who is starting to wonder if there might actually be a beating heart just beneath her boss’ sexy vests.

I really liked this.

Lucy Score is definitely becoming a new favorite author.

I love she writes older characters, the slowburn of the relationship. The banter was to dir for. I loved how Ally stood up for self.

Slowly going through her back list.

Enemies to lovers, workplace romance, rich/poor, mature romance

Lucy Score really makes her characters work for their happy endings. Ally’s struggles with her father and her finances were heartbreakingly relatable. There was humour, love, and betrayal in this story of a modern day Mr Darcy and his Ms Bennett.

Just ok

This is an entertaining book similar to the premise of Pride and Prejudice with a modern day twist and too much graphic sex scenes for me. I just skipped those parts.

A Delightful Audiobook! 👍🏼

I'm a fan of Lucy Score's funny and quirky stories, and this one was such an enjoyable listen. No one else could've narrated Dominic's part as brilliantly as my aural crush, Sebastian York! Erin also did a great job as the bold, headstrong and lovable Ally. This story had so many funny parts and the sex scenes were 🔥🔥🔥. Dom's heartfelt apology emails gutted me. Sebastian York♥️♥️♥️ Loved it.

Slow burn that caputures the attention...

This is s slow burn romance that held my attention from start to finish with it's laugh out loud humour, angst and heartwarming insight. It broached some relevant social issues in rather insightful ways.

You won't regret this one!

I really enjoyed the banter, of course SY and EM narrating it didn't hurt. Story was good with good pacing.


*spoiler*
My only gripe was with Ally going through with the stage performance in the club. I felt like it was out of character for her to do it and for Dom not to stop her!!!!!!

Otherwise, loveeeddd itttt
