The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office. I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills. He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.
Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant. Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.
Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated. Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent. I was swindled out of ten grand.
The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place. I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind. I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.
The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages. The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing. And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.
Egomaniac was a very enjoyable read. I went from laughing one minute to sniffling the next.
Drew may be an egomaniac, but he can put his money where his mouth is.
He's charming, charismatic, sexy as sin and adorable as can be. Dirty-talker that he is, he's still a gentleman and a loving and caring man. Truly a great character!
Emerie was another awesomely written character. She is smart, beautiful, and quirky.
I enjoyed the playfulness and flirty banter between Drew and Emerie. I honestly laughed out loud on more than one occasion.
There was also the perfect amount of sarcasm and steam... two qualities I look for in a great read!
