What do ice cream and Sadie Montgomery have in common? They're both ice cold, but one taste is never enough.
I wanted to be friends — I would have even settled for her seeing me as anything but a nerd — but there was no getting through. So just like any hard-headed, red-blooded man out there, I made up my mind.
I’d make my coworker fall for me.
I’d like to say it was simple, but like every other epic love story, all it took was one drunken night and a lot of naked courage to get the girl. For a moment, at least.
Love with a coworker is never simple, especially since Sadie’s trying to keep us on the low. Not to mention her persistent ex-boyfriend who won’t leave her alone. But I’ve never been good at giving up, and I don’t plan to start now.
The whole thing is a recipe for a rocky road, but I plan to eat the whole gallon, no matter how bad the brain freeze.
I think I’ve probably said this a time or two in the last few months, but I love Meghan Quinn’s writing. It’s romantic comedy at it’s finest, but it doesn’t sacrifice the sexy or the feels in favor of the laughs.
Somehow Co-Wrecker slipped in under my radar at first. I think it was because I was swamped with work and prepping for Apollycon. Regardless, I was shocked when I started seeing posts about it on Facebook… because I didn’t even know it was happening. So naturally, I headed over to Amazon and purchased a copy immediately. It took me a few days to get to it, but once I took a better look at the cover (hello hot guy with glasses!) and read the blurb (workplace romance!) I moved it to the top of the pile. I’m glad I did, too, because I enjoyed it so damn much.
Both Sadie and Andrew were great characters. They were easy to root for. I loved that Sadie didn’t fall for his charms immediately, instead being downright standoffish with him. I loved that her behavior didn’t stop him from pursuing her. Their chemistry, their friendship, their romance… all perfect in my eyes. I loved the progression of the thing between them and, of course, how it all played out. I was literally laughing out loud and swooning all over the place. It could probably go without saying that I LOVED Andrew’s dirty damn mouth, but I can’t leave that part out. Not only were there feels and laughs, there were smokin’ hot sexy times… often in unconventional places. As it takes place in a restaurant, it’s not your typical workplace romance — i.e. office + billionaire boss + female underling — but it ticked the boxes on my “what I want in a workplace romance book” list.
Long story short: Co-Wrecker was the perfect read for me at the perfect time. It was funny, swoony and sexy. I fell hard for the characters and I couldn’t stop reading once I picked it up. Another hit by Meghan Quinn!
“He’s got that whole hot-nerd vibe going for him. Bet you he’s got Clark Kent superpowers under those glasses of his. Never know until you take him to a phone booth and strip him down.”
The first time I met Andrew, never in my wildest dreams would I have pegged him to be the kind of man who could bring me to my knees with one kiss.
Within twenty-four hours, he’s firmly placed himself in my life when I believed there were no vacancies. Not only does this man make me laugh, make me burn with excitement, and make me want more, he also terrifies the living fuck out of me.
“You make me lose my fucking mind,” I whisper.
Her fingers dance along my back. “You make me forget the world around us.”
