Lucy and Josh sit directly across from each other all day, willing the other to slip up in front of their bosses so they can appear superior. The antics ramp up even more when the co-CEOs, their direct bosses, announce that they’ll be hiring a Chief Operating Officer, and Lucy and Josh are in the running. Both would love to have the job, and both would die if they had to call the other their boss. They’ll do whatever it takes to get the edge.
And then one day they kiss in the elevator leaving work and everything gets very confusing and very hot, very quickly.
This is such a comfort read for me. It was one of the first romances I read when I got into the genre early last year, and highly relatable as a neurotic, driven, weird person. It features some of my favorite tropes, like height differences and competitions, and it’s such a calming book to return to.
I love Lucy so much. Such a weird little oddball. I could swear Sally Thorne basically wrote down my thought processes and just made them actually work as a flirting mechanism.
There are a couple things that I don’t love, as someone who’s worked in highly dysfunctional workplaces and is sensitive to that kind of thing, but it’s mostly a “Oh god it’s cute here but not in real life” thing. Which I don’t mind most of the time! But I don’t think I could handle any more of that than what’s already in this book.
I would love to hear any suggestions for similar reads!
