Secrets, desires, and exquisite pie. It’s all in a day’s work at The Company.
Growing up, I was the rough guy from the wrong neighborhood who couldn’t catch a break. Posy was the pampered girl I tried to impress. But all she gave me was a single kiss before I had to skip town.
Now I’m back, and the tables are turned. Posy runs a struggling pie shop. I’m the VP of a secretive billion-dollar security company.
Not that I can tell her.
There’s a murderer on the loose in New York, and he seems to spend a lot of time at Posy’s shop. It’s my job to identify him before he can harm a hair on her pretty head.
Going undercover as Posy’s new barista wasn’t my idea. I don’t even drink coffee. But now I have to call her “boss,” and do everything the curvy perfectionist asks of me. I’d forgotten how much we infuriate each other, and that she somehow fills me with both irritation and desire in the same breath.
There’s nobody more skilled at stealth ops than me. I can bring this killer down. Right after I take a cold shower. And just as soon I figure out how to make a skinny peppermint latte with milk poured in the shape of a kitten...
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I became a Sarina Bowen fan because of her hockey books. I loved her series Brooklyn Bruisers and Brooklyn, not to mention her co-written books Him and Us. So when the Brooklyn books got a companion series, The Company, I was really curious to see how my feeling would change. And honestly, they didn’t. Just like Sarina’s hockey romance, I love her romantic suspense books. I enjoyed Alex and Bayer’s story in Moonlighter, and I really enjoyed Gunnar and Posey’s in Loverboy.
Loverboy is about Gunnar a former bartender that is now working at The Company as private security. When he is brought back to New York for an assignment he is put in the one place he never expected, a coffee shop run by Posey, his one time crush and the woman he shared a smoking kiss with years ago. Now he is undercover, in her pie shop, as a barista and trying to protect her from a murder that is too close to her for his comfort. But as Posey and Gunnar get closer he is no longer just protecting her from danger. He is protecting both of their hearts.
What I loved about Loverboy was how easily the suspense and the romance were woven together. It really added to the chemistry that was naturally there is Posey and Gunnar and made the reader invested in their safety. And was I ever invested. The was really enjoyable seeing the two of them get to know each other and to open up to one another and let down some of their barriers. All while trying to stay alive and figure out who was out to get Posey and why. It all just worked together.
All in all Loverboy was a really enjoyable read. It hit on all the right notes and made me 100% invested in these two characters. I look forward to reading more books in this world and I think you will too.
