THE OFFICE PARTY by Whitney G

I can’t believe that I pulled my boss’s name for our company’s annual Secret Santa tradition…

As the devil incarnate, this infuriating, cocky bastard never gives us the holidays off, and he honestly expects us to be grateful for his generous alternative: The Office Party.

It’s a mandatory, all-expenses trip for two weeks at a surprise luxury resort—where we still have to work twelve to fifteen hours a day.

I’m so over this…

So, I put zero percent effort into his gift. I tear the tag off whatever my sister gifts me, add a five-dollar amazon gift card, and hand it off to him.

It’s not until my sister sends me a text that I realize how terrible of a decision that was.

If that’s not bad enough, this year’s “luxury trip” will be in my hometown–the place I’ve avoided for years. At the resort that my grandmother owns…

If the universe gets me out of this, I will never ‘regift’ anything ever again…

Micky’s 3.5 – 4 star review

This short Christmas steamy novella was classic Whitney G and it was perfect for a one-sitting with a cup of something and a snack. It gave all the hate-to-more, heat and Christmassy vibes all in one and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The male MC was the boss and his top executive was the female MC, Savannah. I was glad that the boss was less of an a-hole than many of her books and the pretend hate was just a load of fun. Savannah ended up pulling her boss’ name in the secret santa.

Whoever pulls Mr West’s name in the Secret Santa game this year, can you please gift him ten hours of psychological therapy? Then again, can we all pitch in for that anyway?

I would love to see Whitney G do a little role reversal in future books where the female is in a position of power rather than the hero. I like her brand of characters but I’d also like to see some variety on occasion.

So go forth and make your afternoon or evening’s free time with this short gem to get you into the season.

Thank you to the author for the early review copy.

NEVER GOT OVER YOU by Whitney G

Nine and a half years ago, you married a man who wasn’t me. He wasn’t even half of me…

Nine and a half hours ago, you walked through the doors of my billion-dollar boardroom for a job interview.

Although every person at the table fell for your charm and applauded, I didn’t dare. I couldn’t help but notice your bare ring finger. Couldn’t help but notice that you were even sexier now than you were on the night we first met.

I honestly didn’t want to hire you, but I had no choice. (I was outvoted 16-1, but trust me, you got this job by default.)

When you signed the papers and we shook hands, I didn’t bring up the fact that you didn’t “wait for me” like you promised to years ago, or that you just moved on with your life like what we had meant nothing. Instead, I insisted that we keep things one-hundred percent professional.

So, for the record: I’ve long forgotten about you and all the times we shared. (This includes the way your body feels under mine, the way your laughter used to make me smile, and the way you used to breathlessly say my name for hours at a time.)

I’m definitely not in denial, this is all one hundred percent true. You’ll never hear me say that you still have an effect on me, that you’re still the best I’ve ever had, or worse, that I never got over you…

Micky’s 3.5 star review

I know what I’m getting into when I read a Whitney G book and the reality is I get a steamy story with an arrogant hero and usually a strong woman. I am content in this knowledge and it usually suits my mood when I’ve chosen to read.

NEVER GOT OVER YOU was a second chance romance (a trope I love) with hurt brimming over in both directions. Told mostly in the present and occasionally with a flashback, the story of Kate and James/Sean was slightly different to my expectations in some ways. James was a loyal type in his younger self and actually this did come through in the present. He was less asshole-ish than some of Whitney G’s heroes and I appreciated this.

Kate was a likeable if a somewhat chaotic character. She was multi-talented in a way you might have to suspend a wee bit of reality and I felt her backstory had some gaps which I just wanted a bit more detail of. I did enjoy her tenacity but I hated her parents and didn’t understand that part of the story either.

Kate and James together were fun to read and the steam was reliable and provided good in-the-moment narrative. The emotional connection needed a little more depth for me to truly buy into them as a couple past and present. As well as a couple, they were boss and employee, I found the emails completely unrealistic in their lack of professionalism, this could have been conveyed more convincingly.

Overall, I enjoyed the story, it was easy to read with a little rushing towards completion. It is a great choice for a day’s read, a weekend or vacation.

Many thanks to the author for the early review copy.
