Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
Well… AJ’s fiance is cheating on her. Which leads to lots of sexual tension when she and Adam — her good friend and boss — wind up sharing a hotel room. Of course they give in, and it is hot. Seriously, steaming the shower, burning up the sheets hot. And that scene during his conference call? Holy hell! AJ and Adam successfully keep their coworkers from finding out about their fling, while at the same time heating up most of the office space. But when AJ gets a well-deserved promotion at the same time that a colleague learns of their affair, it very much looks like she’s just been sleeping with the boss. Which, already having a #MeToo experience from a college internship, was her fear all along.
I really liked the evolution of Adam and AJ’s relationship. Those feelings were kind of always simmering underneath the surface for both of them, and it was so easy for them to fall into a routine and pattern as a couple. Adam is a really complex character, much like Iain is. When Adam’s backstory was explained — why his mother favored Holland so much and such disdain for him — it was heartbreaking. But it also explains alot about why Adam is so fiercely loyal to a small group of people.
When AJ leaves him to carve out her own career path, Adam shows that loyalty by following her — but not overshadowing her. Both of them moving out of Los Angeles leads to a great reunion not only for AJ and Adam, but for Adam and his family. The epilogue was a wonderful treat, as all of Adam’s loved ones are in the same place together — all because of AJ.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
