It started out like any other morning on the train.
Until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle.
He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world.
Who did the stuck-up suit think he was...God?
Actually, he looked like a God. That was about it.When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out.
I might have picked it up.
I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers.
I might have held onto the mystery man's phone for days―until I finally conjured up the courage to return it.
When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me.So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk's office.
I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first though.
I didn't expect him to text back.I didn't expect our exchanges to be hot as hell.
I didn't expect to fall for him―all before we even met.
The two of us couldn't have been any more different.
Yet, you know what they say about opposites.
When we finally came face to face, we found out opposites sometimes do more than attract―we consumed each other.
Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn't prepared for where I'd wind up when the ride was over.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn't see coming. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
I loved this story. The combination of Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward books can do no wrong. The men are cocky but in a good way and it is easy to fall in love with them. Then there are the women! No crying DIT here, just real women that I can see being BFF with. I love it. I was worried that Stuck-Up Suit was going to be akin to 50 Shades because lately, it seems if you have a businessman in the story that is the direction the author takes you. Thank goodness, not even a smidge of 50, nothing, nowhere, not even a hint. Can you tell I am sick of that? Whenever I get an offer of a book that starts with billionaire/millionaire I automatically reject it. Blah! Yuck! No! I just can’t! So I was 100% pleased that even though Graham is a filthy rich businessman, that was only a small part of his character and it didn’t play that big of a role. He was just the average Joe once Soraya got to know him. But I will say I hated that name, Soraya. It sounds too much like Psoriasis. LOL If you love audiobooks as much as I do this is a story that is a fantastic contemporary romance, I smiled and was so delighted throughout the story I never wanted it to end. The narrators were excellent and the only thing that would have made it better if it was read as a duet. I am looking forward to more from this pair of authors and narrators. Without a doubt I am rating Suck-Up Suit 5 Boundless Stars, it was love at first word.
