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 is another solid, engaging contemporary standalone romance from Vi Keeland. Drew and Emerie are characters that you easily fall in love with and laugh out loud at their banter and antics. Poor Emerie just moved from Oklahoma to NYC and has dumped all her life savings into a new office space. Little does she know that she has been duped and is actually in Drew’s office. Drew handles it all the way we would imagine a grumpy Alpha male would but he still manages to be understanding and help Emerie out. The slow burn that ignites into a raging fire between these two is so enjoyable.
Drew has a ton of baggage that wouldn’t be easy to put aside. He doesn’t share his past with any of the women he dates (loose term) but feels comfortable sharing with Emerie. Emerie’s past hang up with Baldwin leaves her feeling lonely until Drew comes along. She enjoys her time with him and their chemistry is through the roof. Things get a tad complicated and Drew’s first inclination is too shut down. Watching these two figure out what they want and how to go about getting it was beautiful and seemed so real.
This is another Vi Keeland book that you should pick up immediately. You won’t regret it.
