REVIEW – PLUS ONE by Aleatha Romig


A fun, sexy new stand-alone from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

He’s sexy and confident, the kind of man every woman notices. You know, the one with the to-die-for body and panty-melting smirk. And then there’s the way his designer suits drape over his broad shoulders and big…well, we’ve all heard the rumors, the ones that say he’s up for any challenge.

But I can’t see him that way. He’s my boss—technically one of the owners of the company where I work—and definitely not in my league. Men like him don’t notice women like me, and they don’t date them.

And I don’t date men like him.

Until that one time that I catch him in a compromising position when I’m also in need of a last-minute date for a wedding…and then it’s not real. It’s blackmail.

For one weekend, he’s my plus-one.

Beautiful and unobtainable.

From the moment she walked into my office with those stunning blue eyes and crazy sensual curves, she’s been on my mind. Three years and never once has she acted interested in me. Usually I flash a million-dollar smile and women fall to their knees, some literally.

Not her.

Then on the occasion that I agree to let another woman do that—fall to her knees—guess who happens to catch us?

It may not be the most conventional way to get on her radar, but I didn’t get this far in business without knowing when to seize an opportunity. If this sexy little firecracker with perfectly kissable lips thinks she can blackmail me into attending her cousin’s wedding, I’m going to jump at the chance to be her plus-one.

You love her darker side. Now it’s time to meet Leatha, the lighter side of Aleatha, as she trades her renowned twists and turns for laughs and love with this sexy new stand-alone romance, PLUS ONE.

This is pretend, but not the way she’s defining it. What is pretend is my show of control. Kimbra Jones has it all. I’d fall to my knees and beg her if I could make this weekend continue.


PLUS ONE is the first Aleatha Romig book that I have ever read and all I can say is that I was completely blown away by how much I truly loved this story! I know she is famous for her dark books and I did go into this one with a little trepidation because I wondered if she would be able to successfully write a RomCom and I am so happy to report that my doubts were unfounded! The storyline had me hooked from the prologue! Office romances, when done right, can be OH SO GOOD and my GOD, I nearly burst into flames from the scorching hot sexy scenes in this book!

Kimbra Jones is an HR manager for a pharmaceutical logistics company in New York City. She moved all the way from a small town in Indiana for this dream job. Life has been good to her in the career department but she hasn’t fared too well in matters of the heart. When her mom calls to find out if she’s still coming with her boyfriend to her cousin’s wedding, Kimbra starts to panic. Her family doesn’t know that she broke up with her boyfriend six months ago. She doesn’t want her family to know that yet again she is single but since the wedding is less than a week away, her options seem bleak. But then everything changes when she catches the CEO, Duncan Willis, in a compromising position in the office restroom with a female employee. Desperate times calls for desperate measures and she ends up “blackmailing” Duncan into being her ”Plus One” to the wedding festivities and in return she will keep his indiscretion a secret. Not only does he have to be her wedding date but he also has to pretend as if they’ve been dating for the last five months and they’ll be sharing a bedroom in her parent’s house for four days. Duncan is not the least bit put out by the situation and views this as a long awaited opportunity to get Kimbra into bed.



Duncan has fancied Kimbra for nearly three years. From the moment she walked into his office he had been captivated by her, and little does he know that Kimbra has harbored a secret crush on him as well. This wedding ends up being a welcome opportunity for the both of them even though they agree that they’re strictly in a ”pretend” relationship. Neither of them expected to feel an overwhelming attraction for each other and that they’d share such a deep connection.

The lines between fantasy and reality are blurred for the couple and soon enough both Kimbra and Duncan aren’t so eager to go back to the way things were. Will insecurities and past heartbreak keep them from taking a chance on love?

This book was simply amazeballs and there aren’t enough words in the English Dictionary that could successfully describe just how much I loved it! The heroine was endearing, the story was wildly entertaining, some of the secondary characters are a serious laugh riot, and it has a ridiculously sexy and swoon worthy Hero!

PLUS ONE is currently available! Make sure you bump this one waaaaaaaaaaaaaay up your TBRs!! I am truly hoping that Ms. Romig will write more books like this! It would be a travesty if she didn’t!
