This is another great book by two authors I have recently come to love – Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. So far, I have read only one book by each author by themselves, but I really enjoyed both books. Now that I have read this book, Stuck-Up Suit by both authors, I couldn’t even tell who wrote what. That must be why they have written a few books together, because they are flawless writers both alone and when teamed up. With great writing, comes great characters and dialog. The characters have amazing chemistry where nothing feels forced. They have this flirtatious banter that keeps a smile on your face and butterflies in your belly.
Soraya is the female role. She works as an assistant for an advice column. Soraya takes the train to work every day and on one particular day, she sits across from a smoking hot guy in a suit, barking at people on the phone. When it comes to his stop, he gets up and drops his phone. Curious as Soraya is, she checks his contacts, pictures and texts. When she tries to get his phone back to him by going to his office, he is rude and won’t see her. So, she takes a few photo’s of herself and leaves the phone with reception. Graham retrieves his phone and sees the photo’s. He is instantly intrigued by the feisty girl who yelled at him through the intercom and left scandalous photos of herself.
This is where the great chemistry comes in. Graham texts Soraya and they start a flirtatious conversation through text for the next few days until they finally meet. They start to spend some time together and realize they are not so different from each other than they thought. There’s a twist in the middle of the book that I was not expecting, which is great, because it made this book a lot more interesting. The turn of events make up the rest of the book and it all comes together in the end. I was pleasantly surprised how everything came about and I wouldn’t have changed it at all.
Soraya is young, pretty and wild. She likes to change her hair colour to match her moods. She’s feisty and she is not afraid to say what’s on her mind. I really enjoyed her character. She wasn’t annoying or needy. She came into the relationship with her head strong because of her past and didn’t take things too fast. Graham is the owner of his own company. He is assertive and strict but he gets his job done. Graham doesn’t really smile much and he always yells at people, but he falls head over heals for Soraya. Being with Soraya makes him a better person and it shows in his family life and his work life.
I really enjoy these chance encounter romance books. The few that I have read by these authors have made me want to read more of them. I find a real connection to them because they portray real life scenario’s that can happen to anyone, and you never know where you’ll find true love. I highly recommend this book and any other books by these two authors. They are quick, easy, fun books with romance, drama and sex. All things good to make up a great romance novel.
