We used to be close.
We used to be best friends.
Until we became enemies all over again…
Courtney Ryan ruined our on and off again friendship with one swipe of her sexy, red pen. After the final rude message she wrote in my yearbook, I decided that we didn’t need to see each other anymore. (But if we ever did, I would show her exactly why I had every reason to be “cocky,” and make her admit that I really *was* “that damn sexy.”)
Now that it’s ten years later, I’ve graduated from law school at the top of my class, and I’m being recruited to work at the number one law firm in New York City.
Since I’m in desperate need of a change and want to meet new people, I don’t hesitate to accept the offer.
Until I find out that Courtney Ryan graduated from law school, too.
Until I realize that she’ll be working at the same exact firm, in the office right across from me.
And if this timing isn’t unfortunate enough, she’s far more tempting and sexier than I originally remembered.
(Oh, and last night I found out that she lives right next door…)
We don’t have to be close.
We don’t have to be best friends.
But she’s going to pay me back for making us enemies all over again…
Jace Kennedy & Courtney Ryan first met in detention at Blue Harbor High School. They were best friends, & each other’s first love. A misunderstanding leaves them both with a broken heart, and blaming the other for the end of their relationship. They both go on to become attorneys graduating from Harvard & Yale at the top of their classes. Jace ends up in Seattle & Courtney in New York.
Jace is ready for a change & a fresh start. He takes a job at the #1 law firm in New York, Walton and Associates. He’s stunned when he crosses paths with the one woman he’s never been able to get over. He hasn’t seen Courtney in ten years, but she’s just as beautiful as he remembers.
Courtney can’t believe she’s going to have to work with Jace. She still hated him after all these years, & regrets ever trusting him. He’s just as sexy & cocky as he was in high school, and no man has ever made her feel the way Jace did.
-“He was my first love.”
-“My first real friend, my first real everything.”
-He kisses me in a way I’ve never been kissed before.
Jace & Courtney soon learn not only will they be working in the same office, but they are also new neighbors. They clash and the sexual tension overflows into passion. Will they admit they still care for each other or let pride get in the way?
This was a cute friends to enemies to lovers romance. Jace is super sexy & I really enjoyed this one.
