Sunny Shelly’s Review: The Intern by Marni Mann


A scorching hot enemies-to-lovers office romance from USA Today best-selling author Marni Mann…

In the legal world, everyone knows my last name. So, when Declan Shaw—the hottest, most ruthless and sought-after litigator in the state—comes in to mentor my class’s mock trial, I decide not to reveal that piece of personal information.

I want a one-on-one with him like I’m any other law student, especially when we go out to celebrate after class.

But the one-on-one ends with us in the alley behind the bar.

With us stripping off our clothes.

With me screaming his name.

It’s desperate-to-have-you, no-holds-barred, downright filthy sex.

And then, he ghosts me, like a complete alphahole.

But a few weeks later, when I walk into The Dalton Group—my family’s law firm—where I’m starting my internship, my new boss is waiting for me.

The man I despise.

The man I can still taste in my fantasies.

Declan Shaw.

 Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

If steamy, enemies-to-lovers workplace romances are your jam, then don’t miss out on The Intern. Hannah and Declan have chemistry for days, from the moment they meet during a mock trial in one of her law school classes and have hot, steamy, alley-way $ex to the moment she realizes that he will be her mentor at her family’s law firm.

Declan is as shocked to see Hannah as his intern as she is to see him as his mentor. He had no idea who she was the night that they hooked up, and she was ticked after he ghosted her. It’s been a few weeks, but Declan hasn’t been able to get Hannah out of his mind — and working with her every day is going to be pure torture, so he naturally resorts to being a grouchy SOB. For her part, Hannah lies about the events that happened that night, setting the stage for a major conflict between them once things really get going. Will alphahole Declan fully let his walls down and let Hannah in? Will her omission be too much for Declan to handle or will these two litigators find a common ground?

The banter between Hannah and Declan is sharp and witty, and the storyline grabbed my attention from the start. I enjoyed the arc that each of them took in this story, and how they came to find a work/life balance.

UPDATE FOR AUDIO: Holy hell, Lee Samuels took Declan to a WHOLE new level!! His narration was phenomenal and along with Savannah Peachwood, Declan and Hannah were even hotter the second time around as I listened to these two vocal artists tell the tale.

The Intern is a standalone in the Dalton Family series and follows Hannah, the younger cousin of Dominic, Jenner, and Ford. Of course, there are plenty of appearances from her big cousins, and the timeline overlaps a bit with Ford’s story, The Single Dad. I can’t wait to see how this series finishes up with Hannah’s twin, Camden, in The Bachelor.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

USA Today best-selling author Marni Mann knew she was going to be a writer since middle school. While other girls her age were daydreaming about teenage pop stars, Marni was fantasizing about penning her first novel. She crafts unique stories that weave together her love of darkness, mystery, passion, and human emotions. A New Englander at heart, she now lives in Sarasota, Florida, with her husband and their yellow Lab. When she’s not nose-deep in her laptop, working on her next novel, she’s scouring for chocolate, sipping wine, traveling, or devouring fabulous books.
