REVIEW: Hard Place By Emily Goodwin

REVIEW: Hard Place By Emily Goodwin

SYNOPSIS

Cold. Callous. Cocky.

A total playboy with abs for days, a panty-melting smirk, and a face the gods themselves would be jealous of.

And he’s my new boss.

None of that matters, because as a single mom, men like Alexander Harding are the last thing I need. What I do need is this job, so I’m going to keep my head down, work hard, and avoid that asshole as much as humanly possible.

But then he gives me an offer I can’t refuse, even though everything inside of me is warning me to run away and never look back.

It’s just one weekend.

One weekend to convince a potential client that Alexander has changed from the player who spent more time in the bedroom than the boardroom into a family man they’d be happy to go into business with.

But the more time I spend with him, the more I realize that there might be a beating heart buried under his designer shirts and spectacular pecs after all…which is bad news for me.

Because the only thing worse than hating your boss is falling in love with him.

MY REVIEW

** I WAS GIVEN THE ARC IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST AND FULL REVIEW **

This Book gave me the feel from the start to finish, and then to find out it is part of a duet!? Made me so happy then broke my heart to wait all at the same time!

This is not my first book I have read by Emily Goodwin and I have yet to be disappointed by a book of hers. The synopsis is a bit misleading because it paints Alex as this cold person, when really you see him and what he is really looking for, it makes him such a great addition to the Book Boyfriend Club. Reading about him and what he does for Harper and her kiddos, his sister and her family, you see that he is merely a product of his upbringing and that makes me him more amazing. (Don’t Worry I wont spoil those, but when you see what I am talking about please let me know.)

Harper is strong determined mom, who is not afraid to accept help when it is offered to her. But at the same time will not take advantage of the kindness to those around her. I love her as strong leading lady, a great role model to her mother. I love how she was developed and is portrayed as human rather than this super human trying to do it all. I mean I am married mom of 2, I have help daily and the fact that she was written to be human and have breakdown, bad days and just dont give a shit days is amazing and great. More reason why I love Emily’s writing style because she write real, but in a way you can still fantasize…. If that makes any sense at all.

I am IN LOVE with the dynamic being developed between Harper and Alex, what I am not in love with is the way this one ended!

CLIFFHANGERS!

I love them because they make you want more and try and think of where this is going to go from here, but I hate them because not you have to wait for more…

I Do Highly Recommend this Book to anyone who loves a fluffy sweet, Office, Single Parent, Enemies to Friends To Lovers Kind of Romance.
