The premise follows Julianne Becker and the two men in her life-Nick Matthews (her boss and the object of her affection); and Travis Miller (her BFF for life and the man who is desperately in love with Julianne). As Julianne's boss and superior, Nick knows that to get involved with a co-worker and someone under his supervisory position is a definite no-no and deal breaker with his company. And for all intents and purposes, Nick stays clear of any appearances of impropriety. Fast forward one year, Nick and Julianne meet at midnight on New Year's eve and their relationship begins to flourish and burn.
As the storyline progresses, our leading couple must keep to the shadows and hide their relationship from co-workers. This is difficult when Julianne answers to Nick at work but weekend getaways and dinner at home help add fuel to their forbidden love and desires.
Enter Travis Miller. Travis is Julianne's best friends, former lover and current confident. But Julianne is blind to Travis's feelings-he is a man so in love with his best friend that when her relationship with Nick is discovered by co-workers, Travis swoops in and tries to pick up the pieces of Julianne's broken heart. And here in lies a major storyline development as the love triangle that Nick, Julianne and Travis are now engaged in, becomes the fodder for deceit,betrayal and selfish attitudes
I have to say at this point, the story reads like an adult version of Twilight without the paranormal aspect-if it weren't for the sex and alcohol ........ There are so many similarities between the scenarios and leading characters that my mind started to wander back to the aforementioned series. Travis is Jacob; Nick is Edward; Julianne is Bella. And Julianne is just as reluctant to admit her feelings for Travis as she is to lose her heart to Nick. Julianne is willing to do anything for the man that she loves (Nick) but uses Travis to bury her heartbreak and pain when Nick walks away.
How He Really Feels is a story of forbidden love in the work place but also a story about three people who have plenty of growing up to do. Their actions and attitudes were immature, selfish and adolescent. Julianne was oblivious to Travis's love and yet some how tried to justify her actions as one of friendship. Travis acted like a horny teen at every opportunity and took full advantage of everything that was thrown his way and, revenge is ugly when your heart is broken. And Nick-for a well-educated, rich alpha male-he was arrogant to believe that his actions would never be caught and when all was said and done-he pushed away the woman that he loved in a devastating scene of heartbreak and pain.
The writing is simple and so is the one on one communication between the characters; there are no complicated scenarios other than a love triangle that rivaled many young adult storylines. The maturity level ( or lack there of) of the leading characters upped this reader's anxiety level as the triangle situation took an ugly turn.
What He Really Feels (He Feels #2) is Travis's storyline that runs parallel to How He Really Feels and told from Travis's POV. The reader will be along for the ride as Travis endeavors to forget about the only woman he has ever loved and finds solace with a stranger and a one night stand.
Julianne and Nick worked in the same office for a marketing firm. They were both very, very attracted to each other the first time they saw each other but didn't let on. Nick was Julianne's boss so that made it even more difficult for him to let her know how he felt. On top of that, when Nick was hired he had signed an contract to never date anyone from his department. Otherwise, they would both be fired.
They finally tell each other how they feel and start dating, but because of the contract, they have to keep it a secret. I liked the writing style of the author very much. The story of Nick and Julianne's relationship flowed smoothly. I liked Nick and that he was so focused on whatever he was doing, whether it was something for work or doing something with Julianne. Unfortunately, I didn't like Julianne at all. The book started with her obsessing about Nick and zoning out while in a meeting and thinking about having sex with Nick. I wasn't impressed with her right from the start. Throughout the book, I thought Julianne was selfish and had no consideration for anyone else's feelings.
Nick and Julianne eventually get together and they are a cute couple. Both are good looking, have nice friends and family and have good jobs. They even get along together at work despite their relationship outside of the office. It is all perfect apart from the issue of keeping their relationship a secret otherwise one or both could lose their Marketing jobs. But nobody could find out, could they?
This is a classic Romance book and it was great! There were no dramas...well a little drama but that is to be expected right? There was certainly no controlling men filled with angst and no BDSM in sight and it was such a wonderful change. In fact Nick seemed too good to be true, he didn't play games and was honest with this feelings.
I really connected with Julianne. I enjoyed her inner dialogue and really felt for her at times. Her enthusiasm for her job even made me enjoy going to work for a couple of days too. Of course there were also times when I wanted to shake her and so will you too, for her actions but it all made for an excellent story.
If you like your classic love story romances with a happy ever after that is an engrossing read then look no further than this book. I am giving How He Really Feels 4 stars and I am looking forward to book 2.
Within under 24 hours I have read this book, had my heart broken and fixed along with Julianna and Nick.
It started off as your typical forbidden office romance, which in my mind made me question the book, but I try never to judge and I am so glad I didn't. I felt my self getting attached to Julianna and how she was feeling for Nick and her heartbreak over Trav.
This book had the perfect amount of romance and sex along with daily issues and hurt. It made me feel like I was actually looking into their lives as if they were real people as this wasn't over exadurated and it wan't too much which to me made it such a good read!
Thanks to NerdGirl for choosing me as a winner for this book, I really am grateful!
