We Shouldn't Kindle Edition
From #1 New York Times Bestseller Vi Keeland, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.
Bennett Fox walked into my life on one hell of a crappy Monday morning.
I was late for the first day at my new job--a job I'd now have to compete for even though I'd already worked eight years to earn it, because of an unexpected merger.
While I lugged my belongings up to my new office, a meter maid wrote me a parking summons.
She'd ticketed a long line of cars--except for the Audi parked in front of me, which happened to be the same make and model as mine.
Annoyed, I decided to regift my ticket to the car that had evaded a fine. Chances were, the owner would pay it and be none the wiser.
Except, I accidentally broke the windshield wiper while slipping the ticket onto the car's window.
Seriously, my day couldn't get any worse.
Things started to perk up when I ran into a gorgeous man in the elevator. We had one of those brief moments that only happened in movies.
You know the deal...your body lights up, fireworks go off, and the air around you crackles with electricity.
His heated stare left me flushed when I stepped off the elevator.
Maybe things here wouldn't be so bad after all.
Or so I thought.
Until I walked into my new boss's office and met my competition.
The gorgeous man from the elevator was now my nemesis. His heated stare wasn't because of any mutual attraction. It was because he'd seen me vandalize his car. And now he couldn't wait to annihilate his rival.
There's a fine line between love and hate--and we shouldn't cross it.
We shouldn't--but straddling that line could be so much fun.

‘WE SHOULDN'T' Is a full length, standalone, sexy enemies-to-lovers office romance novel written in dual POVs so we get to know both characters well...
Our hero and heroine are essentially competing for the same job as their advertising companies are merging. Bennett is a sexy, arrogant ladies man, who doesn’t believe in relationships while Annalise is beautiful and sweet stunner who’s nursing a broken heart after being dumped on Valentine’s day.
You couldn't help but not like Anna in all her quirkiness and when these two meet the sparks start flying instantly... even though they loathe each other...
“I'd let myself start to think that beneath the arrogant Beast was some sort of misunderstood Prince Charming. Sometimes a beast is just a beast, no matter how many layers you peel back.”
What started out as a challenging competition between the two as they battled it out for the job became a relationship neither saw coming, as let’s face it there is a fine line between love and hate and in this case it explodes... “I haven’t been able to focus on anything since the day you walked into the office,” he said. “You’ve starred in all my fantasies, even when I tried to hate you.”
So while Bennett wasn't a Hero that I found easy to love in the beginning once he shows his vulnerability, the book became nearly impossible to put down. Great fun all round... 4.5 Stars
I really enjoyed the verbal foreplay between Annalise and Bennett and how Bennett always seemed to make Annalise forgive him when I'm sure she wanted to strangle him!! I always love a strong female lead and Annalise was a perfect example of this. Lots of fire and great chemistry and the story kept flowing well. 5 stars
Loved the cartoon doodle at the end too - the exaggerated boobies were so Bennett
“ There May be a fine line between love and hate... But straddling that line can be so much fun”
So very true for these two characters. Bennett Fox and Annalise O’Neil’s first Meeting had me laughing out loud with what he had witnessed just minutes before coming into work.
Both of their respective ad agencies were merging together and they both held the same job title of creative directors, you can see where this is going right.... and you would be correct ! Which one kept the job at San Fransisco and which one would be shipped off to work a thousand miles away in Texas . Let the competitive games begin! ( they both did NOT want to go to Texas)
The pages kept turning and I kept sliding more to the edge of my seat in anticipation. It was a wild, hilarious ride and I loved every word written.
Right from the get go I saw massive sexual chemistry, competitive natures clashing , sexy witty banter, and a whole lot more which was so much fun to read but I also loved as time went on and feelings were bared , all the hard and tragic topics that came to light we just as important as all the other factors. I loved how Annalise is the only person who could see past Bennett’s bad boy , emotionally unavailable self to see what beautiful gems lay hidden underneath.
The Author had the perfect blend of all the emotions that were seen throughout this story. The writing was sublime and I also loved the secondary characters Madison and Lucas too.
“That’s the thing about love. We didn’t fall in love with the perfect person; we fall in love despite a person’s imperfections.
You can always be sure whenever you read a Vi Keeland book that you are going to get get way more than your money’s worth.
Congratulations on another perfect read , it definitely deserves 5 stars.
Bennett is the perfect MMC, love his humour, his inner dialogue, his arrogance but also his soft heart and brokenness!!
Annalise is awesome as well, she’s so real. Such a beautiful heart but also stands up for herself.
This book has the perfect amount of steam, humour, drama and it’s everything! Literally one of my favourite contemporary romance books out there and tops the best workplace romance. Some parts just liberally make me laugh out loud and some parts make me tear up. I find myself often thinking about this story and couple. What a masterpiece! Totally recommend it.

Unfortunately, their working relationship gets off to a rocky start when on her first morning Annalise is observed by Bennett putting a parking ticket from her car to his and then vandalising it by rippling off his wind screen wiper when it gets caught in her hair.
These two people are expected to work on the same three projects and made presentations to see who is the best. Annalise is very meticulous in her planning and makes lots of notes. Whilst Bennett loves drawing cartoons and is more spontaneous. Of the three projects one is actually for Annalise's family wine firm.
As they work on their presentations, fate intervenes and a workplace romance develops and enemies become lovers. Annalise finds out about Bennett's godson who he has every other weekend and he learns shockingly that her previous boyfriend wanted a break from their long term relationship so he could see other women.
This is an excellently written book and I fully recommend you read it. There is lots more to learn about Annalise and Bennett. You will be pleasantly surprised as their relationships grows.
Both vying for the same position when their companies merge, and starting off on the wrong foot leads to sexual tension & ...sex (which is very well written might I add)
There's more to the characters than you expect.
Well paced girl meets boy tale.
There's some funny moments in the book like the restaurant they go to "Dinner and a wink" (for swingers).
...and if you've ever imagined workplace cunnilingus that was great too.
I love when a book can give me all the feels and I had them with 'We Shouldn't'. The chemistry between Annalise and Bennett was obvious from the start but I loved how their relationship was built slowly.
