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.
A new standalone novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Vi Keeland.
EGO MANIAC: This review is going to be as spoiler free as I possibly can do it. A few quotes here and there, and a brief overview of what's to come when you one click this, but there's so much more to this book than what my review divulges.
We're first introduced to Drew Jagger (not related to Mick Jagger) who had just arrived back in Manhattan on News Year's Eve after being on a 2 week holiday in Hawaii in the hopes that his office space would’ve had a complete do over whilst he was away.
What he didn’t expect to encounter was an intruder. A gorgeous pint sized intruder with laughable Krav Maga skills that she unleashed on him.
For a crazy person - now that I was looking - she was pretty damn cute.
Fiery red hair piled on top of her head seemed to match her firecracker personality.
Seeing a light on in the file room he goes to investigate not thinking he would encounter a female standing on a chair screaming at him threatening to call the police on him.
"You don’t need to call the police. This is my office.”
“Do I look stupid to you? You just broke into my office.’
“Your office? I think you took a wrong turn at the corner of Crazy and Nutjob."
Getting down to the mix up it transpires that newly arrival in town Emery Rose had been conned out of ten thousand dollars by a scammer posing as a leasing agent. She’d believed everything the man had told her.
Of course, he had to be gorgeous. Because I couldn’t mortify myself in front of an ugly man.
"Tell the truth.
If I was short, bald, broke, and toothless with a hump on my back, you’d have told me off after catching me looking at your ass? "
"You’re an egomaniac."
Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And Emery's job was to help people save their marriages. Polar opposites in every sense of the word, but sharing an office space it was only a matter of time when their differences just didn't matter.
You're the red in my black and white world.
