A new standalone novel from #1 New York Timesbestselling author Vi Keeland
The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office. I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills. He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing. Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant. Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all. Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated. Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent. I was swindled out of ten grand. The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place. I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind. I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do. The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages. The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing. And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.
Egomaniac begins when the heroine is in "her" office and an intruder comes in. Come to find out it was all a huge misunderstanding, and now she will do what she can to help Drew out. He's an attorney, and these two can't seem to stay away form each other. However, Drew doesn't want a relationship because of his past, and doesn't believe in love. That really does make for a good relationship with him.
This book was okay. I thought it was funny at times, and I enjoyed the relationship between the heroine and the hero. However, I was a little annoyed with some of the stuff that happened with Drew in his personal life. Because he is an attorney, I couldn't really fathom how he would lose a certain case. That just didn't make much sense to me.
Other than that I liked the book, although I wish there had been more between the hero and heroine.
