Laura’s Review of Egomaniac by Vi Keeland

A new standalone novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Vi Keeland

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. 
What I Loved
       There are no words to express how much I loved this book from beginning to end!  I knew that there would be some laughs sprinkled within the steamy attraction and relationship but there was so much more to this story then I expected.  Drew and Emerie meet under very strange circumstances when Drew comes back from vacation to find a stranger has moved into his office.  Emerie moved to New York from Oklahoma in search of office space to build her psychology career, only find out she was scammed out of thousands of dollars.  

        Even though these two get off on the wrong foot, which is kind of a funny scene in the beginning the attraction is instantaneous and I couldn’t wait for them to tear each other’s clothes off.  I really liked that they were opposites in some respects because that made the sparks fly between them even more.  Drew was a shrewd hard as nails divorce lawyer, while Emerie was a couple’s therapist, trying save marriages.   Also, I loved that Emerie worked hard to break down Drew’s walls, it showed her strength and depth and made me love her even more.  She might have been the naïve girl from Oklahoma but she taught that New Yorker a thing or two about compassion and trust. 

Not So Much
        I really have no negatives about to say about this book I loved it so much!  I just wish that I had more Drew and Emerie in my life. Total book hangover once I was done.

To Sum It All Up!
        I absolutely loved Egomaniac from the very beginning all the way to the last word.  There was so much more to this book then I expected and that’s probably what I loved the most.  I wasn’t expecting things to get so emotional and dramatic and it totally captivated me.  When Emerie’s heart was broken so was mine and when Drew had hit rock bottom I felt it right along with him.  I don’t want to give anything away so I won’t but buckle up and enjoy the ride.

        I loved watching Emerie fight Drew’s advances and when they finally get down and dirty I loved that even more.  It was so wonderful watching them fall in love with each other and struggle to keep their relationship in tack.  It was touching to see that no matter the bumps in the road ahead they would remain together through it all.  This was such an amazing book that I thoroughly enjoyed and will be a reread soon!
