Publisher's Summary

I didn't need the cherry red stilettos and tight mini skirt to make an impression, but I'm a firm believer in going big or going home. Plus, those shoes cost me a small fortune, so why not flaunt them?

The last thing I'd have expected was that the one man I could hardly bear to share the same breathing space with would find me and my shoes appealing enough to break his firm stand on not getting down and dirty with a colleague.

Had I been wearing panties that night, we'd have never fallen down that rabbit hole. Regardless, we needed the release and believed it would be a one time deal — an unspoken truth.

Note to self regarding unspoken truths: The heart never lies.

Narration is excellent

The narration on this title is top notch.
Ava Lucas is always wonderful and carries a lot of this story, she is EXCELLENT as always.
Connor Crais comes into the story almost half way through and the addition of him adds so much in this duet style narration.
But Jason Clarke ladies and gentlemen. It's Jason Clarke that steals the show. Jason Clarke with a BRITISH accent - um, yes. All Day!
Again, this is duet style so you get ALL Jason ALL BRITISH all the time. He's wonderful.
This story has a lot going on, and at the heart of it, it's a woman who's pulled between two men, representing her past and present. Which way will she go? What is the right life for her? It's about love, choices, sacrifices. Very enjoyable listen.

Liked the Story. Loved the Hero’s. Hated the Heroine!

I’m sure I will be a minority reviewer.
*May contain spoilers*

First off, my pros: I enjoyed the premise of the story a young woman trying to find herself in both success and love. I loved the idea of the colleague troupe and navigating the workplace flirtation/romance. I loved the narrators. The writing itself is very good to as it does provoke emotion in the reader, or at least- this reader.

My cons: I came to despise the heroines character. I felt she was incredibly selfish and toyed with everyone’s emotions throughout the story. For example every single character who expressed their love and interest in her she had a sexual relationship with- including her female best friend, who was the sister of her ex fiancé whom she was on and off again with. Afterward she would tell them it could never happen again- why even do it in the first place knowing how each felt about her? To me, this was just a prime example of her extreme narcissism and selfishness that was present throughout the whole story.

I felt very torn between the two heroes because even though we only had little time with Anson compared to Bentley, I thought both of them were much better than what she deserved. I liked them both for separate reasons and felt she put them both in a very terrible position toying with their emotions just because she was being selfish and interested in instant gratification and thinking on a whim without repercussions.

Overall I really did still like the story and between the heroes, the narrators and the premise would still give it about a 4/5 but as the female lead’s character developed I just found it hard to identify with her and felt myself grinding my teeth as the chapters went on… But that makes for a good writing to bring out that kind of emotion in a reader!

Complicated, Sexy Love Triangle

OVERALL: This is my first Sandra A. Sigfusson book, but it definitely won’t be my last. One look at the fantastic choice of narrators, and I knew this was a one-click buy. I love the workplace and love triangle tropes.

STORYLINE: Jess, an creative director for an ad agency. She is thrown together with another creative director, Brantley, and they have to share an office space due to downsizing. What happens next is their navigating being officemates and their developing chemistry. About halfway through the book, her ex, Anson, comes back into the scene. And that’s when Jess finds herself stuck between two men she has feelings for. Both male love interests have great chemistry with Jess. I found myself rooting for both men for different reasons. There is also a side story with her best friend (and ex’s sister), Carmen, that I wasn’t a fan of, but that’s my only real issue with the book.

CHARACTERS: Jess is an independent, career-minded woman who knows (or thinks she knows) what she wants. She is a sexual being and isn’t afraid to figure out what works for her and what she likes. I love all of these things about her. She isn’t a helpless heroine. Both male love interests, Brantley and Anson are cocky, but likable at the same time. Brantley is pretentious, smart, and playful. Anson is outgoing, protective (overprotective at times), and assertive, a real Alpha male. He also comes across as a man-child and, at times, a bit of a jealous asshole. All the side characters add to the storyline of Jess finding herself.

NARRATION: This book is narrated in duet style, and all three narrators nail their parts flawlessly. Ava Lucas narrates a good chunk of this book, and she is truly fantastic. It’s easy to lose yourself in the story when she takes over. Jason Clarke’s British accent -- holy moly! It is incredibly sexy and while I had not listened to much from him in the past, this definitely made me more interested in looking up other books narrated by him. And then there is Connor Crais. Crais is easily one of my top 3 narrators. He’s got a smoky, masculine voice that is also incredibly sexy, and he plays the arrogant Alpha male perfectly.

Sexy and beautiful

I read and listen to this at the same time. I like this story a lot and the audio for it, the cast is quite brilliant: Jason Clarke, Ava Lucas, and Connor Crais. They did a fantastic job to bring their sexy, steamy, and beautiful moments through these characters in a office space romance. Jess is a Snarky career- driven woman, Brantley is her coworker that is such a British snob, Jason is annoying sexy assistant and Anson is her past love, cocky as can be. Overall, this story unfolds how a women could fall in love but with 2 men. She is fierce yet flirty woman that you, as a reader, can’t help to love her and hate her at the same time. It’s good entertainment writing and I’ll have to keep in mind about this author! I mean, her next book is coming soon and can’t wait: the art of love. I think a lot of people underestimate her books and it’s a must that these type of authors should shine some light, too. Thank you for just keep on writing, you know.

P.s. She is fairly new to me. I did read her other book the voice 808, 1st one I read fr. her and it’s not bad, either.

So Many Twists And Turns ❤️🔥 5 Stars ⭐️

Jess and Brantley and then an ex-fiancé!
At first I didn’t want to like Jess. But, she is an incredibly independent and talented businesswoman.
She is not afraid to explore her sexuality and other things.
But I’m all over the place with my review, this is such a great flowing storyline, with so many surprises and heartaches.
But, it just made for an amazing story,

Well Written and Well Read

I don't usually write reviews after listening to my audiobooks. This one truly deserves. The plot was well written and the characters are fully devised to give you a true romance novel. The narrators made the story a wonderful experience.

Well Done Ava, Jason, and Connor. Excellent work Sandy.

I look forward to reading more of your work.

A low-angst, high self-discovery tale

Joining Jess on her journey, you have the opportunity to celebrate a boss lady, young exec and to feel for the woman learning to prioritize herself. Sharing an office with the British hottie and dealing with her first love showing up unexpectedly means all the feels and ups a s downs. Along the way, readers will love the side characters who ad depth to the story and Jess’ character. Bestie Carmen, office manager Carol and - a real highlight of the book - Jess’ assistant Jason make for some fantastic moments. The end of Jess’ journey through her first six months as a new Creative Director in NYC ends with the most warm-and-fuzzy ad her business produces leaving you swooning and smiling for the HEA that the characters get.

Narration: Ava does the heavy lifting, and her performance is fantastic. Connor some how perfectly nails the cocky, man-boy, just-a-touch-too-selfish nature of his big and brawny soldier he plays. And Jason is excellent. His accent is knicker-melting and the sound of each side character he voices unique and special.

Office Romance - Real love and phenomenal duet narration

Once you start this narration, you can seem to stop! I am just a sucker for British accent and to add on that, it is a duet with Jason Clarke and Connor Craig…it was so good. I love that Jess is a headstrong woman who made decisions by putting herself and her wants first. The bantering and teasing was hilarious as well as the intimate sex scenes were so hot. I could not stop listening and wanted more of both of them. The book sounded like the author wrote from experience of love that never fades even though 8 years past but people changed. Highly recommend this book !!

I got really invested on the characters and is an amazing story of a girl figuring out her feeling and what she wants for herself. the narrators were superb but I wasn't expecting any less by 3 of my favorite narrators. ❤❤❤❤

This is a new Author to me and I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I absolutely loved it!! It has all the feels with out being overwhelm of emotions. I laughed hard at times and the squirmed in my seat with how hot it got at times. There’s a lot of story in this book, and it was done so well. I never felt it was dragging or missing anything all at the same time. It was most definitely my favorite kind of story!!
And all the narrators were amazing!
