Dear Mister…**strike out** no, too formal.
Hey there sweet cheeks *strike out* no, too forward.
To whom it may concern,
Full disclosure; before we move forward with this email, I would like it to be known that I have consumed an adequate amount of alcoholic beverages to intoxicate myself tonight. Three margaritas, two shots, and one beer—because it was free.
I think it’s important to be open and honest with your co-workers, don’t you?
So here I am, being honest. Drunk but honest. Or just drunk with lust? You decide.
I like you so much it’s clouding my judgment and making me do things I never would sober. Like write this letter.
I have a hopeless, foolish, schoolgirl crush on you when you are the last person on earth I should be falling for. Did you know people around the office call you a sadist? An egomaniac. An insensitive, arrogant prick. Your bark is worse then your bite, and you don’t scare me. The fact is, I’d love that bite of yours to nip at my bare skin while we’re both wearing nothing but sheets.
For once I want you to look at me as more than one of your employees.
And as long as we’re being honest, that navy blue suit you wear? With the crisp white shirt? It really makes me want to loosen your tie and show you who’s boss.

Oh my sweet baby Jesus, did you see that synopsis? Shimmer my timbers my furry friends, I just knew this one was going to be scrumptious. Sara Ney and Meghan Quinn haven’t let me down yet with their writing style, and I was doubtful they would stir me wrong this round! And I was right – Love Sincerely Yours was adorable, hilariously fun shenanigans and entertaining, juicy romance. This writing partnership is one that needs to continue delivering because this was perfection!
So, what was so great? Well shits, the characters, obviously! Oh my stars, be still my speckled heart these characters! Peyton, for one, stole my soul. She was absolute peach of a character! She was witty, cunning, charming and down right adorable. Her awkward word vomit left me chuckling like a madwoman. Even at the beginning, I felt she might have been more timid, or shy person, which does come out here and there, but no, she is just hilariously outspoken, ballsy and quite frankly just a fun, relatable female character. Everything about her screams: I need Peyton as a real life bestie, and I needed her yesterday. Then we have the cocky, prime meat of an asshat Rome. Gosh, I am a sucker for overly confident, jerk men because when I say Rome really got my goats, I mean his attitude seriously had the panties dropping. He was such a enriching male character, definitely the picture envision of a boss trope.
Speaking of the boss trope – did I mention this was one of my favorite dynamics? That is right comrades, I gravitate to authority figure type romances, I cannot help it, it is my dirty drawer fantasy binge. This one definitely took the cake for me, though I would have liked to have seen a little more work related scenarios, Peyton and Rome still had a phenomenal boss employee romance that was both beaver drool worthy and hilariously clever. As the emails between them became more flirtatious, their personalities in the workforce became more intriguing with the storyline. They just had a really amazing romantic build. Once they finally did collide – whew – I saw stars. Or maybe that was the mind-gasm these authors just gave me.
I still stand by my previous comment though, I would have liked to have seen more scenarios of Peyton and Rome in the work environment, more sexual tension or even a play out fantasy. But where this lacked, because obviously my rating is still a five, their relationship still had me swooning. They still had this connection that was undeniably well played out, and as for the workplace dynamic it was amazing but in a different aspect then what I was expecting, one I really liked seeing.
And though the main goodies are always the best goodies, it was even the secondary characters that really helped in aiding the romance build between Rome and Peyton. Hunter was an absolute dream. He was hilarious and just, ugh I adored his scenes. He was definitely me in male form – I cannot (fingers crossed) wait to see more of his antics in the future.
Bottom line, neither Sara Ney nor Meghan Quinn has let me down. Their writing style is energetic, crisp and always delicious on a multitude of levels. I honestly can’t think of a single book of theirs I have read at this point that I didn’t fall head over heels in love with all of their everything. Love Sincerely Yours was just what I needed in the RomCom world to get me out of my non-reading funk. It was hilarious, brilliant and down right entertaining!
Now who is next and when? I see yet another favorite trope in the near future with Hunter – cannot wait to see what these two ladies have in store for us next!
** KU NOT AVAILABLE WITH THIS RELEASES **
I open the company messenger app on my phone and scroll through the executive names, knowing full well I’m about to break a policy. It’s the company’s phone, and the company’s app, and I’m about to use it for personal use. To flirt.
With my boss.
I close my eyes, find his name—next to it is a little, green dot, which means. . .
He’s on the app.
I’ve never talked to him live before so this is a huge step, but then again, it might be more fun to get his initial reactions to my comments.
Debating it for all but two seconds, I type out a message to him, making sure I’m signed on under my LSY persona.
HandsRomingMyBody: Hey you.
My text turns into a new message on the app and I wait on bated breath to see if he will respond. Nerves prickle up my spine, my fingers feeling numb, my mind playing mutiny with my heart just as little dots appear letting me know he’s typing.
Oh God, I don’t think I’ve been more excited.
Sara Ney is the USA Today Bestselling Author of the How to Date a Douchebag series, and is best known for her sexy, laugh-out-loud New Adult romances. Among her favorite vices, she includes: iced latte’s, historical architecture and well-placed sarcasm. She lives colorfully, collects vintage books, art, loves flea markets, and fancies herself British.
She lives with her husband, children, and her ridiculously large dog.
Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.
Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
