By day, I'm a domestic violence prosecutor. By night, I read romance to restore my faith in love, relationships, and humanity in general.

Her Favorite Rival - Sarah Mayberry

I really liked the companion novella to this book, Her Favorite Temptation, but Her Favorite Rival was just "meh." Audrey and Zach are colleagues in a big corporation that has something to do with selling hardware. When the company brings in a scary new CEO known for cutting jobs, Audrey and Zach know their jobs are on the line. It's the worst possible time to dip one's pen in the company ink, and yet their growing mutual attraction becomes ever more impossible to ignore.


I found this plot very slow moving. I understood why Audrey and Zach would be reluctant to get together; I just found it very hard to care. Personally, I could never thrive in a corporate environment, and I have no interest in climbing corporate ladders, so I really struggled to get into a story set in that world with people whose motivations are so different from my own.


(Not sure what's up with the blank cover. There's a sort of soft-focusy brunette couple smiling at each other in bed on the cover of mine.)
