From USA Today & Amazon Top 50 bestselling author Shain Rose comes a gripping enemies-to-lovers standalone office romance where a ruthless and grumpy CEO is brought to his knees by the bubbly woman he thought he could control.

Rude. Harsh. Severe. Jett Stonewood.
The billionaire businessman refuses to crack a smile while vacationing in paradise. So, I work to introduce some fun into his life. If we have a bit too much by sleeping together, so be it. It’s not a big deal. We just need to forget each other when we fly back home.

The problem: Jett acquires my company.
He’s everywhere now, telling me where I should sit in his office, how I should dress, and even who I should date.
He may be my boss, but I’m not listening. I’m done with him.
I just have to convince my body of that.

Bubbly. Airy. Overly optimistic. Vick Blakely.
She needs a lesson in safety precautions. Not that she’d follow it if our recent tumble in the sheets is any indication. Doesn’t she know that warnings aren’t meant to be invitations? Someone needs to enlighten her that you can’t keep tempting fate or it will backfire.

The solution: I acquire her company.
The little pixie flutters around in reverie, lost in her own daydreams.
But she’s in for a rude awakening. She works for me now, and I excel at dragging people back to reality.
