From NYT bestselling author Melanie Moreland comes enemies to lovers, office romance -
A tyrant by day, a playboy by night.That is the reputation that precedes Richard VanRyan. He lives life the way he wants, no concern for the opinion of others. He cares for no one, is completely unrepentant, and he has no desire to change his ways.
Katharine Elliott works under Richard as his PA. She despises him and his questionable ethics, but endures all the garbage he sends her way, because she needs the job. Her end goal is far more important than the daily abuse and demands she tolerates from her nasty tyrant of a boss. Until the day, he asks her for something she never expected. A new role with a personal contract— fiancée instead of PA.
What happens when two people who loathe each other, have to live together and act as though they are madly in love?
That's what happens.
Can the power of love really change a person?
Will they survive the contract?
What do you do when the one person you hate the most becomes the one person you can't live without?

As the narrator of several popular series-including the #1 USA Today bestselling The Club series by Lauren Rowe-John Lane is one of the hottest new voices in romance and erotic fiction.

Un problème s'est produit lors du filtrage des commentaires. Veuillez réessayer ultérieurement.
Le livre est sur 1 thème classique du genre, mais le fait d'avoir principalement le personnage masculin au premier plan vient contre balancer cet effet. Il y a des répétitions sur les sentiments des personnages qui alourdissent sur quelques passages la lecture.
Sinon c'est un bon moment de lecture.

"She's [f...] perfection. I couldn't stand her."
Richard VanRyan is a tyrant. He's emotionally dead or, at the very least, emotionally stunted. A man known for his blunt, almost cruel, tongue, and his ambitious, ruthless streak. His reputation preceded him. When he finds himself stuck between a rock and a hard place, an almost unpalatable solution is suggested to him. However, he is desperate enough to consider it because it's a pretty genius answer to his dilemma.
"I hated being a PA. I especially hated being a PA for Mr VanRyan. I had never known anyone so cruel."
Katharine Elliott despises her job but she goes about it with dignity and no small amount of stoicism. She's in desperate need of the money and can't afford to be without it. When her hateful boss presents her with a new role, the lure of what the money would mean to her pushes her to accept it - against her better judgement.
"You aren't despicable. I think you're lost. You haven't let yourself feel."
As they work together to build a convincing facade to present to the world, their dynamics start to change little by little. Katharine's kind ways slowly break Richard's demeanour down, and for the first time in years, he begins to experience feelings that are alien to him, and he doesn't quite know what to make of them.
"I used every bit of frustration she made me feel to punish her into silence. Except it didn't feel like punishment. It felt like pleasure. Hot, pulsating pleasure."
God, this book really sucked me in! I love an enemies-to-lovers story - throw in a fake relationship, and I'm in heaven! The one thing I wasn't prepared for though was how emotional it was, which had me reaching for the tissues.
Richard was SUCH a nasty jerk! He lacked empathy and manners. He and Katharine couldn't have been more opposite in character. She was kind, giving and thoughtful. The way he treated her was truly terrible. However, when she showed him that she had bite to her character, I really loved that he liked that about her and was actually quite charmed by her. The change in their dynamic was fascinating to follow. Richard was a really hard nut to crack and Katharine somehow managed to chip through his shell to the man beneath. We caught glimpses of a more genuine and flirtatious man beneath the surface. Richard's journey throughout the story was amazing to witness and I absolutely loved how the story concluded.
Humorous, tension-filled, and emotional. Thoroughly recommend!
Up to half way through I felt this was a potential 4 star read then Richard was transformed, not just into a better version of Richard, into a different personality. Likewise Katherine who we had come to understand was, under her meek exterior, a strong and determined woman became boring and lifeless.
The last 5th was unbearably sweet and sentimental.
Ps: I am off to read Richard and Katharine's life after HEA in The baby clause.
Richard has Katie, his PA agree to be his fiancé so he can get the job he wants with a new form. A purely business transaction! Katie signs up for the best of reasons, a lovely girl trying her best to make lemonade out of lemons. Richard is arrogant, selfish and mean, a man you love to hate. As you can imagine it's not going to be plain sailing, how could it be? When one person is trying to manipulate the situation for their own end.
Melanie writes so well, every sentence draws you in (hence the early hours finish) engaging you in Richard and Katie's life. There are some great one liners, especially from Katie, and Richard does eventually take the stick out his ass to become a decent human being.
