Review: Ego Maniac by Vi Keeland


     Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00072]

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.

Emerie came to New York for a reason, to follow a man, but she also wanted to make herself within her career, so after falling for a scam that leaves her office-less when the real owner of the space returns, she doesn't realize quite how her life is going to change after meeting attorney Drew Jagger, the aforementioned owner. 

Drew is surprised to come back from a vaction to find a woman in residence in his office. But even more surprising is the connection he feels to her and his need to help her out, protect her from further scams and anything else.  

I loved the friction between these two from page one, the banter, the push and pull, the visible chemistry from the start.  The build up between Drew and Emerie moves at a steady pace, while giving us glimpses into who they are as individuals and why they fit so well together.  

While this book was full of laugh out loud moments, there were also sweeter, swoony moments, and of course that touch of sizzle.  As with all of the books I've read of Vi Keeland's she doesn't deliver the HEA without some added complications, and I really liked how well those complications played out within this book, taking me on an unexpected journey with Drew and Emerie and building up their ability to be who the other needed. 

I found it oddly fitting that Drew handled divorce cases, usually the worst kind, while Emerie worked with clients to keep them together, no matter their trials.  It was that sense of opposites that really brought out how well these two worked together, because though they didn't always agree they did see things from the other's perspective in a way.
