There’s only one thing Malena Cortez dislikes more than cold coffee and that’s Thad King.
They’ve worked at the same law firm for almost seven years. She even once thought they were friends.
But there is nothing friendly about Thad. Except maybe his dog.
When they’re forced to work together on a case, Malena realizes there is more to the preppy rich guy than she’d always thought.
But she doesn’t have time to figure out why Thad suddenly doesn’t hate her anymore. Or why she can’t stop thinking about the time they almost kissed.
Besides, she’s still mourning her late husband while navigating the world as a single mom. She’s definitely not ready to date again. Or fall in love for the first time in her life.
But maybe there’s more to the guy who shows up when she needs him most. But is a maybe worth risking everything for?
This is my first title by this author, and I did enjoy it overall.
Malena and Thad have been coworkers for 7 years, through her marriage and the death of her husband. And, as you find out, he feels he missed his chance and is determined not to make the same mistake again.
Thad is all in from the beginning, with Malena less certain that a relationship between them is a good idea. I liked the interaction between them, but I think I also wanted more of the tension on this, it seemed a little easy to go from 7 years of fighting to a relationship. It worked, but it also seemed a little quick and lacking some of the "story" that could have been part of it.
That said, I enjoyed it overall. The characters were fun and interesting, and I was invested with them, although I did think the part with Thad's family was also resolved too quickly.
Maybe there was too much going on for me that it left me feeling like there were stories that weren't fully explored or resolved, but the main relationship was solid.
I enjoyed and recommend this title.
