Sunny Shelly’s Review: Race You, by Jolie Vines



Title: Race You
An Office-Based Enemies-to-Lovers Romance
Author: Jolie Vines
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: July 12, 2019

Emma is fighting for her dream job … she has no idea she
could win her dream man.
In a competition for the position of a lifetime, Emma knows
she can’t beat her office enemy on skill alone. After Arnie sabotaged her first
day, the boss has avoided her like the plague. Everyone loves Arnie, even
though he’s the most annoying, lazy, hot, jerk she’s ever had the
misfortune to work with. And dream about.
Arnie thinks only one thing when he looks at Emma—more. But
with his self-imposed exile in London almost complete, he should be packing to
return to the family business in Italy. His days working alongside his secret
crush are numbered.
Forced to collaborate, Emma resists the chemistry between
her and Arnie. If she gets too close, she may as well hand him the promotion,
yet turning her back on the boss’s favourite will destroy her chances. And leave
her unemployed.
Only one of them wants to win. Both are risking more than
their careers.
This standalone contemporary romance takes in the sights of
London and the stunning Italian countryside. If you like Christina Lauren, RS
Grey, and Sally Thorne, you’ll adore this humorous, chemistry-loaded novel.

“Did you just flex your muscles?” she asked, her voice husky.
No teasing now.
“Maybe.” I totally had.
Emma’s gaze met mine. Searching. I waited for whatever she
was going to say, guessing it would be a request for a cab. What I wouldn’t
have given for the ability to stop time, to hold on for just a little while
longer in this perfect second. Wallowing, before it ended too soon and she left
me alone.
In an instant, I was so tired of being alone.
Then she muttered something that sounded like “fuck it”,
rose on her toes, and crashed her lips onto mine.
Holy hell.
Of all the ways I’d imagined kissing Emma Worthington, none
of them had been like this. It’d always been me initiating things, my hand in
her hair, my gentle pressure coaxing her into wanting me.
Emma kissed me like she was trying to win a prize in
seduction. Her fingers gripped my shirt, and I tasted the peach of her last
cocktail as her tongue slicked over my lips.
This is happening. This is happening! Wake up, you dumb
I jerked to life and dragged her closer, sliding my hands to
her lower back, the silk of her dress cool under my touch. My heart slammed
into my ribs, then I drew a jagged breath and gave her my all.
Emma took it, boosted it, then backed me to the wall,
attacking my mouth. She hooked her leg around mine, and I could’ve died from
the pleasure. She ground against me, and my blood spiked, the world fading to
the points of connection between us. The fast movement of our lips, devouring
one another. The pressure of her fingers gliding up my neck and into my hair. I
wanted her to scratch me, bite me, but I was already dangerously close to
losing control.
We kissed one another like it was all we could do, like
London had run out of oxygen and our mouths were made of air. This was so much
better than fighting.


Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Race You is an entertaining workplace/enemies-to-lovers romance. Arnie and Emma definitely get off on the wrong foot, and there are some funny twists and turns in this story as they go from workplace rivals to something much more. It’s low-angst, with witty banter and some laugh-out-loud moments.

If you are looking for a lighter read, definitely check out Race You. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
