I don't know if it was the sub-zero temperatures at work or the book but I had chills. It was definitely the book. I'm certain of it. I've been on the hunt for some good, flirty romance and I found it in Jaded a new release by Ember Leigh. It had all of the flirty romance I wanted but it did pack a punch with the plot and leading lady Isabella.
I was really able to relate to Isabella. She's given up on men. And I can't tell you how many times I've been there. After one too many heartbreaks, she's throwing in the towel. She's a successful, independent woman and she doesn't need a man in her life. Who could blame her, after her ex cheated on her with his secretary? It was the final straw for her. That is until a surprise gift from her mother shows up knocking on her door one morning. A construction crew on a 3 month project to renovate her house. And a hunky, built, tan, blonde foreman leading the job who has his eye on everything that Isabelle has to offer.
But Isabelle has other ideas. She's adamant about ignoring Luke and making sure he realizes that she basically wants nothing to do with him. But his cheeky sense of humor and cockiness are too much for Isabelle to overlook. And once she gets to know him, he shows a whole different layer that tugs on her heart. Luke is a total playboy but in a nice way. He's not a jerk or anything like that. But he's never found the right person to fall in love with. Isabelle is a force to be reckoned with though. While she can appreciate Luke, she is also very firm in her choices.
Unfortunately these aren't the only hurdles they have to cross, if they were they might be okay. When I first started reading this I didn't really know what to expect but I really liked the book. It's a quick read and it flows perfectly. We do get POV from both Luke and Isabelle which I really enjoyed. Because while Luke makes some heinous mistakes, you can really see that he's a good guy and I don't know if we would have been able to see that without his side of things too.
This is a new release today and I really think that you should all pick this up. If you like a sexy good time, a lot of snark, hilarity, and a good plot you can't go wrong. And check out Ember's website as well. She's hilarious and super fun.
