Pages: 425

Characters: Sabrina Bristol, Magnus Heron

Trope(s): Enemies-to-lovers, Office Romance,


Wall Street Journal bestselling author Nicole Snow returns with a fierce and hilarious office romance where two sworn enemies make undeniable lovers.

My “interview” with bosshole supreme was anything but normal.
He picked the worst day ever to chase me off my favorite park bench.
I retaliated with a spray of cinnamon latte all over his Italian shoes.
Then—for some unholy reason—Magnus Heron offered me a job.

Even his name sounds like a piece of work.
Guess what? He is.
But when you’re single, broke, and barely surviving in Chicago, you hop on the gift horse offering a six-figure salary and ride.
I picked the stallion on a one-way trip to hell.

It’s not the impossibly long hours working under Grump-zilla.
It’s not the fact that he’s snarly, demanding, horribly rich, and chiseled.
It’s not even the pesky way he makes me blush every flipping time we’re together.
Mag is my boss. I’m his lowly assistant. Some rules are carved in stone.

That’s my mantra until we’re sharing a sunset too beautiful for life.
Alone with wandering lips, whispered secrets, and disaster in the making.
The plan was simple: punch the clock, get paid, and keep hating my boss.
What’s the blueprint when the office grump brings me to my knees?

Full-length enemies-to-lovers romance with the banter, intrigue, and slow-burn love worthy of a Happily Ever After. The bossman from Hades meets the hellion he totally can’t stand—until he can’t live without her. 

Raging grumpasaurus in a suit


Oh Wow! This is a full-length novel which was a funny, sexy read with plenty of drama.

Brina was a fiery, sassy character who would not take sh*t from her boss. (Boy, I wished I had the gumption to speak to my boss like that!! ) Brina was full of banter, and the interactions with her friend and flatmate, Paige. I liked that she LOVED to eat. I could go for a bear claw, and a cinnamon coffee!

Magus was grumpy, yes but he also had a heart of gold. at first you only really found this out from the supporting characters, but as the story developed you began to see the sweetie behind the grump. He was extremely prideful. He’d seen the damage his father had done and was determined to make sure he didn’t repeat. Sins of the father and all that!

She’s left a rare impression, though, and there’s no denying the stone-cold fact that I want her. On my team. In my bed. At my desk. On all fours.


Like with most enemy-to-lovers tropes the banter was really strong. The emails between the characters often had me laughing out loud and getting funny looks from my family!

Magus was demanding, and often he spoke in anger before thinking. This led to a lot of conflict between the lovers, but also a lot of heated exchanges. The hurt between the characters was really well-written. At times I had gotten so into the story that a hurricane could have passed through my room and I would have kept reading to find out if they would make up!

I love you, Sabrina. I know I fucked up. living without you has been hell. I won’t ruin this again.


Overall, a funny intense, banter-filled full length romance novel. The sex was hot, so was the conflict. The added superstitions, romance-author mother, and food-talk made this a delight to read. 5/5 stars
