A scorching ‘enemies to lovers’ office romance proves hazardous in this new stand-alone from NYT and USA Today bestselling author Cora Brent.
The good news: Audrey Gordon has just received a dream assignment managing one of the city’s largest construction projects.
The bad news: She’ll be teamed up with cocky office rival and former lover Jason Roma.
Audrey’s got a lot to prove to herself and to her overachieving family. She’s certainly not going to let arrogant Jason Roma get in the way of her success, despite the fact that he never passes up an opportunity to get under her skin. Audrey swears she’ll keep Jason at arm’s length no matter how fast her pulse races whenever he walks into the room.
However, Jason seems to have his own ideas about what Audrey needs. He’s determined to win another chance with her and prove that he’s not the callous jerk she thinks he is.
But when a personal tragedy shakes Audrey to her core, will she push Jason away forever?
Or will she learn a few lessons about love and finally let him into her heart?

Have you ever read a book by this author before?
Adult Contemporary Romance
I would love to reread it once I read the first of the standalone series. It would be nice to know some of the side characters more. I also think the wedding scene would of been that more impactful had I known the couple.
If it’s a series, would you continue reading it?
Who would you recommend this for?
Anyone who loves contemporary romance that touches on things like grief and alcoholism.
When I requested this novel, I thought it was going to be sugary sweet and just an overall pleasant read. I was not expecting a book that dealt with some pretty heavy topics like death and addiction.
I think the author dealt with the subject matter both realistically and tactfully. It made the characters seem so real. They were flawed in their own way but you still rooted for them. The relationship between Jason and Audrey was steamy and frankly, amazing. They had wonderful chemistry and it made their banter so amusing to read.
Enemies to lovers is one of my favorite tropes.
