It started out like any other morning on the train.
Until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle.
He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world.
Who did the stuck-up suit think he was...God?
Actually, he looked like a God. That was about it.
When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out.
I might have picked it up.
I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers.
I might have held onto the mystery man's phone for days―until I finally conjured up the courage to return it.
When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me.
So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk's office.
I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first though.
I didn't expect him to text back.
I didn't expect our exchanges to be hot as hell.
I didn't expect to fall for him―all before we even met.
The two of us couldn't have been any more different.
Yet, you know what they say about opposites.
When we finally came face to face, we found out opposites sometimes do more than attract―we consumed each other.
Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn't prepared for where I'd wind up when the ride was over.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.
I don’t know why, but honestly, romances that start where the main characters have contact with each other but yet never really interact in person are like my new favorite thing. I think it has something to do with the character development that is forced to take place without personal interaction, and it also makes it the moment when the two characters start to interact in person all the more exciting and almost suspenseful.
I actually really like the characters in this book, both of them, I think because they weren’t like super nice, typical, boring people, they were both very unique and sometimes not necessarily enjoyable to be around, but I think that ended up making them more authentic.
Soraya is kind of awesome. I kind of loved her. She’s got tattoos and a personality that is sometimes abrasive, but she doesn’t anything from anyone and I love that about her. I love a girl who can stand on her own and push back when she needs to. She’s also a really person, from her close relationships with her friends, to how she only wants the best for Graham when the two of them finally get together. She tries to make the right decisions for everyone, not just herself, even if that means she has to endure some pain. She’s the kind of girl I would want to be friends with without a doubt.
Now as for Graham, he’s kind of a jerk, and I’m a little mortified that the whole jerk thing works for me, I mean it was hot. To say he is temperamental would probably be an understatement. When the book starts its kind of like a running joke through the whole thing that he can’t keep a secretary because he is so abrasive and hostile. He has a bit more back story then Soraya, I think mostly to kind of explain why he is the way he is. And as the book progresses his back story starts to become his current story. There is a lot going on with him, and mostly having to do with his ex, a truly hateful and horrible woman who I wanted to punch almost every second she was on the page. I don’t want to ruin anything for you, so I am just going to leave it at that, ex=horrible human specimen.
Soraya and Graham have super hot chemistry between them, and not just when they are in person. I loved their interactions, and I loved how Soraya was able to just like throw anything out there and how Graham was so unaccustomed to dealing with someone who was just going to tell him like it is. I loved their relationship dynamic and it made reading the book just such a fun experience. I liked both of these authors before I read this book, but these two together make for a seriously enjoyable time.
