Nova Lane is having the worst week possible. Her latest relationship ended while on her much-needed vacation, then upon her first day back at work, she learns that her beloved boss has quit – and despite having worked so hard for it, she’s not being considered for his position.

Who is being considered for the position is none other than Kessler Rocha. Her ex-coworker and ex-lover, Kessler’s the man who broke her heart five years earlier and the reason she moved thousands of miles away, switched jobs, and created numerous voodoo dolls in Kessler’s (very burly, very handsome) liking.

Yup. Worst week ever.

New in town and on her turf, Kessler promises he’s not the same man he was – and considering he’s now a single father to a precocious toddler, he’s telling the truth.

But he’s still an arrogant, devilish and dangerously intelligent man who’s taking over the position Nova feels she deserves. The fact that he’s gotten even more sexy over the years doesn’t help either.

Now Nova and Kessler have the choice to let bygones be bygones, or fight with each other every chance they get, with unresolved sexual tension only adding fuel to the flames, creating a fire that might just burn down the whole office.

In the corporate world they say it’s just business, nothing personal.

Nova and Kessler are about to show just how personal things can get.

Are you looking for something fun to read? Look no further because this romantic comedy from Karina Halle checks SO MANY of my favorite boxes:

✔Enemies to lovers
✔Second Chance
✔Office Romance
✔Single Dad
✔Super sexy times
✔Laugh out loud, hold your belly and bend over moments!

Nova is my favorite type of heroine. She is driven, focused and a seriously hard worker. She is a woman of color trying to make it up the corporate ladder and after working her ass off, she apparently gets passed over for a promotion that she rightly deserves. Who does it go to? None other than Kessler Rocha, the level ten heartbreaker who ripped her heart to pieces years ago.

As you can imagine, Nova doesn’t exactly have a warm welcome for Kessler and at first their interaction is hostile at best. I loved the banter between these two! Their fights were the best kind of foreplay! Poor Kessler is actually kind of clueless because he has no idea of how broken Nova was all those years ago. That’s because Nova is a tough chick. She puts up impenetrable walls and doesn’t allow people to see any form of vulnerability. Old flames rekindle though and the super sexy Kess who dotes on his son is hard to resist.

This story is set in Hawaii and the author did an amazing job of using that environment to set the satge for her hilarious moments. Let’s just say leprechauns, mosquitos and geckos played an interesting role in this book. And let’s not forget the chickens! OMG guys! This was so hilarious and so much fun to read.

I highly recommend if you are looking for a fun romance with plenty of LOL moments and low angst!
