Oh my! Oh my! Oh my!
I haven't read an Emily Snow book since the Devoured series and ok this book was a little slow to get going, if I'm being brutally honest and Jace Exley incessantly referring to Lucy Williams as, Love did become a bit too much at one point, but I cannot in good conscience give this book a lesser rating, because it became a book that I simply couldn't put down.
Lucy Williams, divorced & jobless finds herself in a position where her present collides with her past. At first glance she came across as Miss Prim and Proper and found herself way out of her comfort zone. She was incredibly likeable though and I found I was able to feel her emotions throughout this book.
Jace Exley is your quintessential bad boy. He's no stranger to sexual encounters and has a few things to hand that made him one hell of a sexy male lead. I reitterate that he overly referred to Lucy as 'Love' and being from the North of England, where that is often used as a term of endearment, we really don't say it as often as Jace did. But he more than made up for that in alpha-sexiness.
I would have loved a female antagonist, I think this would have propelled the story to a much greater level, but a damn good read nonetheless.

Former overachiever Lucy WillIams sucks at adulting.
Recent divorce, check.
Pending lawsuit, check.
A move back to Boston to live with her mother, triple check.
It can't get much worse, right?
When she starts her new marketing job at EXtreme Effects, she's positive shit’s stopped hitting the fan. Sure, what she's advertising is a little ... unorthodox, but it pays the bills. And since she's seconds away from becoming Lucy Williams: Wednesday Night Bingo Enthusiast, she needs money to get the hell out of her mother’s house.
The only problem is her boss, Mr. Extreme himself: Jace Exley. He’s everything any sane woman dreams of—alpha, successful, ridiculously gorgeous. He's also Lucy’s worst nightmare. Because like every overachiever, she has that underachiever she brushed off. The slacker who, once upon a time ago, was the object of her dirtiest schoolgirl fantasies.
Jace Exley—with his sarcastic smirk and delicious accent—just happens to be that guy.
And the friction between them?
Well, that's the only adulting Lucy seems to be winning at.
