Stuck-Up Suit Livres audio Audible – Version intégrale
It started out like any other morning on the train - until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle. He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world. Who did the stuck-up suit think he was...God?
Actually, he looked like a god. That was about it.
When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out. I might have picked it up. I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers. I might have held on to the mystery man's phone for days, until I finally conjured up the courage to return it.
When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me. So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk's office. I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first, though.
I didn't expect him to text back.
I didn't expect our exchanges to be hot as hell.
I didn't expect to fall for him - all before we even met.

Graham and Soraya are really sweet together, absolutely funny. Still loved reading their story.

However, she is also shocked by his arrogance and rudeness when she turns up at his office and tries to return the phone he dropped getting off the train. He refuses to see her and with frustration she sends him three headless pictures of herself and tell him via his intercom " Your grandmother would be ashamed of you".
Well, this comments makes him feel guilty as he knew his grandmother would disapprove of his behaviour. Unable to get thoughts of Bridget out of his head he uncharacteristically travels on the train at the same time again to see if he can spot her and the give away is the tattoo that Bridget has on her ankle.
Graham is very successful in business and wheels power with little regard to the people around him. He is used to saying and doing as he likes until he comes face-to-face with Bridget. She seems to be the only person who is not afraid to tell him the truth and criticise his actions. Gradually they begin to develop a relationship and it appears that opposites like magnets do attract.
Then, suddenly, Graham discovers he has a four year old daughter who his ex girlfriend (who also married his best friend) failed to tell him about. She looks like Graham and turns out to be his. But what will this news do to his relationship with Soraya? You must devote time to read this book and find out yourself.
Meet Graham, suited and booted with the looks to match. Keeping it no nonsense and devoid of feelings is his thing, to guard his heart. A chance encounter on a train and a returned phone, including some risqué photos makes life suddenly a bit more interesting.
These two are hot,hot, hot and Soraya may just be the medicine Mr MBD needs ;)
The book follows Soraya Venedetta and Graham Morgan on their journey to love through the trials that are thrown at them.
One morning while on the train to work Soraya overhears a man yelling at his secretary. When his stop comes he rushes off and accidentally drops his phone which Soraya picks up, she keeps it a few days before going to his office to give it back to him with a few new pictures to boot – thus begins our tale.
Graham Morgan is the billionaire we all love to hate and hate to love, with this trope I normally start off hating the male lead character for the better part of the book and then liking him about halfway through. With Vi and Penelope’s Graham I liked him right off the bat which was pretty cool – he was gorgeous, smart, rich, sarcastic and witty as all hell and really a nice guy underneath all the coldness.
Soraya on the other hand is nothing like your typical contemporary romance heroine – although she’s not rich and doesn’t fit into his lifestyle and his ex hates her which is typical – she’s a brash, bawdy, trash talking, hair-dyed Italian from Brooklyn.
The book starts out pretty normal – billionaire finds a woman he wants but can’t have and he makes it his mission to have her in any way possible but then his ex-best-friend (whose company Graham is trying to take over) dies and Graham goes to the wake where he comes face to face with his ex – fiancé who left him for his best friend after he found them in a compromising position.
It gets worse when he meets their daughter and finds out that it’s not really his best friends daughter but his own. That was a real nice twist and I’ll admit I wasn’t expecting Graham to get so throughly involved into his daughters life – especially while the ex fiancé is trying her best to get back into his pants (including stripping naked in front of him at a later stage) but he did and it was really nice to see.
The book itself was written really well, the prose and dialogue flowed with an ease that is sometimes missing from con-rom’s; the characters despite their differences were well matched and the storyline provided the perfect amount of balance. There was one section that was repeated word for word but that’s probably just an editing error and there wasn’t really much that put me off. The thing however that made me give this book only 4 stars instead of 5 was the instalove. I hate it and no matter how good the book is written and how much much love the characters etc is ever going to make me give instalove 5 stars.
A parting quote:
Graham brought my hand to his mouth and kissed it. “No one knows what’s going to happen from one day to the next, but if the world were to end tomorrow, there’s no place I’d rather be than right here with you. That tells me everything I need to know."
As soon as I saw the cover, read the blurb and realised it was going to be another release by authors Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland, I knew it was a must-read for me. And it did not disappoint.
The story is about Soraya Venedetta and Graham Morgan - two complete opposites in every way, who discover each other in an unusual yet explosive way. Graham Morgan is the super sexy, super moody, extremely arrogant 'Suit', whilst Soraya is the sexy, sassy, quick-witted and sarcastic heroine!! I absolutely fell in Love with Soraya's character - her attitude has to be one of the best I've read in a book in a long time! I REALLY LOVED the way she put Graham in his place - regularly!!
I loved this book from the start when Soraya 'acquired' Graham's phone after he left it on the train. The initial phone calls, texts and photos that followed had me hooked, as did the continuation of messages between the two characters after Graham finally got his phone back. The banter and flirty messages were brilliant, with Graham determined to spend more time with Soraya.
"It doesn't matter how good-looking you are. You're a dangerous human being."
"You have no idea how dangerous I am when I want something. I will stop at nothing to get it. And there's nothing more that I want right now then you."
There was a great twist in the story line of the book, and I really enjoyed it, seeing how it may or may not affect them and their relationship.
Overall this book has it ALL! It was so funny - I had some huge laugh out loud moments! i READ IT ALL IN ONE SITTING AND COULD not PUT IT DOWN! It's HOT, SEXY, WITTY and also has all the feels and drama too. A MUST-READ! Simply 5 stars of Perfection!
1 - the FL was hilarious and brilliant to begin with. I liked her real-life fiesty attitude, to begin with. Then she just became a bit of a whinger/sap. It annoyed me. She became too 'oh no, poor me' and was actually quite brutal to the ML. I found this upsetting because it didn't need it and it didn't add anything, or any kind of grit or layer, because to me, she wasn't that person. It was like for a few chapters, she becomes another character. It actually took away from the book.
2 - The language throughout how the F and ML spoke to each other was funny, bantery, flirty, all of it, but then suddenly the author felt it was okay to turn their dialect into, once again, like we entered another book where completely sappy and overly formal/poetic speils came out of the characters mouths. I don't know if this was to try and again add layers or depths, but I once again found it quite annoying and turned a brilliant, easy, funny, read into something which became a bit grating at times.
However, harsh as the above sounds, I only mean it in the lightest of ways otherwise I wouldn't bother with a review and I wouldn't have marked it 4 stars.
Definitely worth a purchase
