Character development: 🧐😕😍😗
The heroine(s): Soraya Venedetta – works for a popular advice columnist as a personal assistant. She has been on more than a few bad dates. Soraya dies the tips of her hair different colors to go with her mood. Her best friends are a tattoo artist and his wife who does the piercing.
The Hero(s): Graham J. Morgan – works in high finance and is very good at it. In the last 8 years he has built a company that ranks up there with some of the best in the business. Since his mother died, he has focused everything on building his business and has used his abrasiveness to push people away.
The Story: Soraya sees Graham the first time on the subway where he sits across from her and reams out a colleague on his cell phone while riding to his stop. Soraya finds his phone after he gets off and has no idea who to return it to, so she goes through the pictures on the phone. She sees pictures that intrigue her and point to the fact that he might not be the jerk who he first appeared to be. However, after calling and texting a few of his contacts she just can’t figure him out.
Soraya goes to Graham’s office to return the phone to him, but he refuses to open his door. She leaves the phone for him, but not until she takes a few sexy pictures to show him what he missed by not opening the door to her. At the end of the day, Graham gets the phone back and once he sees the pictures, he is the one that is intrigued.
I liked the story quite a bit, it was dual point of view with dual narration done by Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell. Though most was told in Soraya’s POV. I love Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell was fine, but there is something about her voice I don’t relate to for some reason. I think I just like a softer voice or something. Though there is nothing wrong with her voice, it is just personal preference I guess.
The chemistry between Graham and Soraya was explosive and the romance was great. Part of Soraya’s job is to sort through the letters and emails her boss gets to give her the ones that would make good columns. Soraya takes it upon herself to answer some of the emails that aren’t chosen with her own brand of advice, which wasn’t sugary sweet and politically correct like her boss’s advice. Her and Graham begin trading emails this way, and I loved it.
