REVIEW: Right Where I Want You by Jessica Hawkins



Title: Right Where I Want You
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 28, 2018

OUR REVIEW:

I bet you're wondering what I was wondering when I first picked up this book: Is this one going to rip me to shreds and break my heart like her last series of books? I can 100% assure you that your heart and soul will remain intact while reading this book. As a matter of fact, you may find yourself laughing and smiling a lot; this office romance/enemies to friends to lovers romance is lighter than it is heavy, especially when a certain friend is in the scene (*cough* Justin *cough*). As fun as Right Where I Want You is, there's also a sweetness to it too. But, I think the thing that was a nice addition to the characters of Sebastian and Georgina was their honest communication. The closer I got to the big conflict the more I dreaded how bad it would be--it could've gone in so many directions--and what continually stood out, was how open they were with where they were coming from. It was refreshing to see grown ups act like grown ups, even if they still mucked it up before they could have their HEA.  

If, during this holiday season, you're looking for a sweet, funny escape, Right Where I Want You is a new release that will surely fit the bill. 
Blurb

There’s a thin line between love and hate . . . and it cuts right through the middle of their office.

Bad boys? They run right over good girls like Georgina Keller.

But after a confidence-shattering breakup, she’s determined not to let anyone at her new workplace push her around—least of all the brooding creative director, a “bad boy of publishing” who’s made it clear she’s enemy #1.

Sebastian Quinn's taste for fast cars, late nights, and beautiful women may have gotten him to the top of a leading New York magazine, but the reputation that made him is suddenly threatening to end his career.

Georgina can help Modern Man shed its bad reputation, but in order to do that, she’ll have to start at the top—and no amount of rakish charm or inconvenient attraction will distract her.

Because if Sebastian gets her right where he wants her, it means she’s going down.

Excerpt

At the stadium’s concession stand, I took a tall stool, putting Georgina and I at eye level since she stood. “So, why didn’t you kiss François?” I asked. “Bad breath?”
She gasped into her hand. “My breath is fine.”
“I meant his. I’m sure yours is pure relish on a hotdog.”
She made a face. “Gross.”
“I happen to love relish,” I said. “But does François?”
Each time I said François with flourish, she flinched. I didn’t care. Something about him bugged me—I just couldn’t put my finger on it.
“We didn’t kiss because you interrupted us,” she pointed out.
“So? If I were in his position, and we both wanted that kiss, I wouldn’t let anyone stop me.”
Frank and I are clicking,” she said, scowling. “There was even mention of spending time at his summerhouse.”
“Hamptons?”
She coughed into her fist. “Boca Raton.”
The idea of Georgina spending a summer with him in Boca Raton was tragic enough that I almost smiled. I got the sense she was playing up the date. If it was so great, why wasn’t she sitting here with him? And why was I more relieved than smug about that? “Meanwhile, Justin and I will be clamming in Montauk.”
“You two should really just make it official and announce your love to the world.”
“But then I wouldn’t get to flirt with pretty girls.”
“For someone who pretends to have as much game as you,” she said, “I still haven’t seen you successfully flirt with any girls since I’ve known you.”
I smirked. “How do you know I’m not flirting with you right now?”
