Firstly let me explain that I have had this on my wish list for some time, waiting for it to drop in price, but it hasn't happened, so last night, as it was my wedding anniversary, I bought myself a little present.
At around 10pm, I started to read it. At 2am, I forced myself to turn off the light. At 7.30 this morning I was reading again with a cup of tea and now that I have finished it (I am a fast reader) I have to share my thoughts with you.

Don't .... be put off by the comments about a lot of sex and little story; the whole point is that they believe they already know each other, but they don't really.

Don't ..... start it at 10pm, particularly if you have something you need to do the next day, or need eight hours sleep a night, because it is really hard to put down.

Don't ......try to analyse the ethics of the relationship too much; the 'reality' is they have spent a long time denying their attraction to each other and trying to maintain a business relationship, when they really, really wanted to get to know each other better in a different sense.

There is a lot of hot sex in it, but there's also humour and romance and satisfaction.

Do ....... buy it - it's a good read.

When I first opened this book I had no idea what to expect but I am so, very glad I read this book. It was brilliant. It had sass, humour, love, hate, all rolled into one amazing package. It’s a book that shows there is a fine line between love and hate and how easily these can become intertwined.

Chloe and Bennett are two people who are insanely attracted to each other but neither has never made a move as Bennett has hidden his attraction by being mean. His good looks and charm are shadowed by his attitude and overall behaviour to Chloe. He may be beautiful, but he is a bastard.

This attraction, left untouched has finally exploded into some very steamy moments that leave both Bennett and Chloe very confused. If they hate each other, why can’t they keep their hands off each other? When they are forced to work in close proximity, sparks fly and it becomes apparent that these feelings may run deeper than hate and be more close to love.

I loved their interactions and their snide but witty comments – it was hilarious and the back and forth should we or shouldn’t we was intense! It was like waiting for the inevitable. I found that even at the start I was drawn to Bennett, even though sometimes he was a real pain, couldn't help but love him. I read this book all in one go and loved every minute of it. Will definitely be getting more of this series!

If you want a read based in sex only then maybe this book is for you, but when then the script seems repetitive. All sex scenes are predictive and seem to consist of the same wording, phrases, boringness. 50 Shades was much better if I were to make a comparison. The actual 'story' was pretty lame as well, I wouldn't recommending reading this book, too boring.

3.5 stars.

I wanted to love it, I really did. I'd been really looking forward to this and was so excited when I received an arc for it and couldn't wait to start. Unfortunately, I was disappointed.

My main issue with the story was the actual relationship between Chloe and Bennett. One minute it was the beginning of the book and all they could talk about was how they despised each other and the next they were screwing each others brains out. When I say their relationship came from literally nowhere, I'm not exaggerating.

The story is told from alternating POV's between Chloe and Bennett and if it wasn't for that I never would have had a clue that there really was an attraction between them. It helped to get in to both of their heads.

Bennett's character irritated me a fair bit. I'm all for the sexy, rich, bastard characters but for me I just didn't find it hot. He wasn't a sexy bastard, he was just plain bastard half the time and mostly for no reason.

Chloe's character wasn't so bad. I'm so used to a whiney, insecure character so to have none of that was a refreshing change. She did give as good as she get in the bastard department but she didn't make any excuses for it. She said she hated him and I'm pretty sure at times she did.

This book was a lot of sex. Thinking of sex, doing sex or talking about sex. Like I said there wasn't much build up but once it started it didn't seem to stop. That part of the story wasn't so believable to me.

I am not sure what the next book in the series will be about but I will continue to read.

I think a lot of readers have left their brains out in the sun too long. Bennett is an ass who takes advantage of his position over Chloe. They "love" is solely sexual desire. They hate each other, screw all over the office, and suddenly they're in love. Since this is what's passing for romance, it's no wonder relationships keep failing in real life.

Loved reading this book, I couldn't stop laughing from the first chapter. Loved both the characters, and their sexual tension. Its steamy, sexy and so funny. It's an uncomplicated easy fun read. There is a lot of sex but it's not trying to win sentimental romance novel of the year. Writing was very fluent and a great happy ending. I would highly recommend.
