*"Call all you want, and see if I come," I said, walking away before he could respond.*
Bam! Take that!
Sebastian or Se-beast-ian as I think I will forever know him as is quite the playboy. He has a way with the ladies. He's charming and a sweet talker. Fairly certain he could melt hearts with just a look ;)
He can come across as a bit of an a** but perhaps there is more to him behind his bachelor facade. Sebastian can certainly spice up any situation as can be seen here with exhibit a:
*"Uncover, exploit, whip," Sebastian listed as he made notes. "Maybe this won't be so bad after all. It'll be nice to be on the receiving end for once."*
Throughout the story, I was wondering, is he the good guy pretending to be the bad guy or the bad guy pretending to be the good guy?
Both of these individuals have some baggage with them and I think this has kept the opposite sex at bay. At least, prevented them from having meaningful relationships. Now when we look at them together, Georgina and Sebastian are at loggerheads pretty much from day dot. Nay, even before they realised who the other person was, they already have a mutual dislike.
I love the supportive characters especially Justin. He can be a bit of a goofball but he really cares about his friends and has good intentions for them. My favourite line from Justin has to be this:
"I love the guy, but I love to f*** with him more."*
I would love to see more of him hint hint ;)
This romantic comedy definitely explores the misconceptions we can have of other people based on their appearance and initial behaviour. There is so much more hidden beneath the surface if one is willing to look. Sebastian and Georgina go from enemies to friends and then perhaps something more. But can they overcome their reservations or will hate win out? The story is about letting yourself be vulnerable around another person. Letting them in to see who you really are inside and having them accept the you, all of you. It's also about overcoming insecurities about your identity and realising that the real you is always waiting inside you. Ready to come forth. This was a fun rom-com with all the feels and laughs.
The story in it self was sweet, an office love with cute dogs. He was an editor of a Men’s magazine who was in a slump due to personal reasons. She was the person hired to solve the problems and get the mag back up in the ratings. I found some of it confusing with them both jumping back and forth with their actions and feelings. There is a thin line between love and hate, but also between weak and arrogant. They were both bordering on that line a few times in my opinion. I’m sad to say that this book just didn’t do it for me but if you’re a fan of this author, you may well enjoy it.
Sebastian and Georgina were witty, believable and their banter was spot on. Loved the dual POV and felt their connection grow through the story. I adored the two best friends and would love a book for Justin. He was a real highlight for me.
Easy, fun read.
Top international reviews
When Georgina accepts a job working for ‘Modern Man’ she knows she is in for a tough ride. After thoughts of her ex-boyfriend make her doubt herself, she is determined to become ‘George’ her alter ego and put all her new male associates in their places. However, little does she know that she will have a whole new challenge in Sebastian Quinn, her rival and person she is essentially there to replace.
Sebastian has dropped the ball, after grieving for his mother he has enabled the ratings of his magazine to flounder. Georgina’s arrival ignites a spark, a spark that very much reminds him of how good he is and needs to be at his job. There is something about her that he instantly dislikes and the pair enter into a sparring match.
There’s a fine line between love and hate, and both characters find this in their own beautifully emotional way. Georgina has to overcome the fact she is stronger than her ex partner assumed, whilst Sebastian has to face his fear and grief.
This book was long and full of interesting and funny plot twist. It was sincere and relatable and the characters were very true and endearing. It was a thoroughly enjoyable read.
I’d recommend this book to all romance lovers and anyone looking to try reading works of a new author.
This was a good read if you're looking for a well written romance novel and a quick read.
Is worth a read. It's different. Fun. Drama. It's not your usual office romance. In a good way. I like that. It's well written.
The storyline is interesting enough, but I felt like the writing style was a little sloppy in places and the characters didn't really react in a natural way to me. I have only just started reading romance, so maybe it's normal behaviour in this genre of books? The two main characters seem to have gone from hate to love to miscommunication to love unnaturally quickly, like the author had a word limit and had to chop down the story to make it fit. I feel like this book could have been a lot longer and fleshed out their storylines a lot more. I agree with other readers that Justin was a fun character, but I feel like men don't talk like that to each other.
Overall, I give this book 3.5/5. The writing didn't annoy me enough that I couldn't read it, but the plot resolved itself so quickly I lost interest and didn't bother to finish the last chapter.
I regret having spent so much time on it, going on, hoping it would get better.
Sebastian helped to make Modern Man Magazine what it has become. Too bad he sacrificed his own reputation to make it happen. But times are changing and the magazine needs to get on board. Georgina is brought in by Sebastian's boss to help make those changes.
Sebastian is less than thrilled to have Georgina overseeing his every move. Who cares if she's hot and if she wasn't his "boss" he would totally go after her. Now he just has to focus on making it through the next few weeks without losing his job.
Georgina is great at her job, but a totally different person in her home life. She takes charge at the office, but at home she's a self-proclaimed push over. Her ex did a job on her and she's still trying to recover. Sebastian is just what she needs to move on.
Georgina and Sebastian have chemistry. They banter, they argue and butt heads, but the sexual tension is ripe and it's only a matter of time. Both fight their attraction until they can't.
I am a total sucker for a steamy office romance and this did not disappoint! Sebastian and Georgina both have their baggage, so it's more than just a steamy romance. The story had depth, a great storyline, humor and lovable characters. You will love it!
Now the real main characters- Sebastian and Georgina were perfect— the chemistry, the tension, the dialogue. All made it hard for me to put the story down. Everything flowed so well in terms of the storyline and I actually did not see a lot of what was to come until it happened, so to me I found it to be a very unpredictable story. I fell in love with the secondary characters, one in particular that I want to have their own story(please!).
Thank you for delivering such a great book to read over the holidays!
When I heard this was going to be a little lighter, maybe a little like a romcom, I was immediately excited and nervous. Let me just say this now, there was no need to be nervous, girl NAILED IT!
I smiled, I swooned, I laughed out loud, and most of all, I felt these characters and their plight in my heart. This story is strongly character driven, the story embodies the traits the two main characters are trying to work through, and it works so well. The side characters, two of which are dogs, are fantastic! I really enjoyed it!
Georgina is very independent, loyal and kind-hearted, but struggles with balancing her generosity with being taken for granted. She’s very direct and commanding at work without being insensitive and callous. As for Sebastian, he’s proactive, dedicated and hardworking, coupled with comfortable and hot-headed when it comes to his job. Yet he’s very respectful to people from all walks of life and doesn’t expect anyone to clean up after him. They both have personal issues coupled with professional challenges, especially while they’re sharing an office. But I could feel the sparks and detect their fascination with each other. What impressed me about them was how forthcoming they could be with communication and when the walls fell, they saw the other’s weaknesses as strengths instead. The banter was hilarious and the secondary characters were beyond entertaining. Between laughing and swooning, there were some heart clenching moments and angst, too. Georgina and Sebastian straddled that thin line perfectly.
I always enjoy Jessica Hawkins books. I did had a few issues with this book. The first 60% dragged. It was a lot of explaining feelings and nothing really happening. Finally at 70% they finally kiss and have one night. One night! Than all hell breaks lose. They want to be together. She’s moving. He’s 33 years old and can’t move back to a city cause it reminds him of his mom..HUH? Than he faces his fears to get his girl AND VOILA they get together.
Did anyone else notice Justin was scared of dogs in the beginning but nothing was mentioned when Sebastian brought Opal in his car?
The beginning was boring and the ending was rushed. All and all it just didn’t mesh well for me. I did give 3 stars cause I did enjoy the ending.
