This is the White Collar Cousins Series by Piper Rayne.
They are sexy, sweet books, with a HEA.
My average rating for the sereis:
Buy Links embedded in photos.
He’s the sexy alpha male in the corner office who goes through assistants faster than free donuts in the breakroom.
I’m the assistant who was chosen to cover for his last fire.
The owner of the company is clear–hook the biggest client in our firm’s history and there’s a partnership for him and a promotion for me. Stipulation–we do it together.
It doesn’t take a tarot card-reading psychic to figure out where our story is headed… late nights, trips out of town, and more than a few awkward moments filled with sexual tension.
No worries though. I pride myself on my willpower. I can totally ignore his sexy grin, his rock-hard body and his dreamy brown eyes. I will not become the woman other women hate.
But it turns out that Enzo Mancini has a lot of layers and if I don’t stop peeling, I’m going to lose everything, including my dignity.
My Review: 4 stars
Annie is a women, working in a mans world. The world of advertising isn’t the most welcoming to women and Annie knows it.
When she get the chance to work with Enzo Mancini on a campaign, she knows she has to show him how good she is.
She also knows that she needs to be careful. Enzo is a good looking man but he is also her boss and could make things every weird for her at work.
Enzo is not expecting that is new temporary assistant Annie would be a firecracker. That she would test him. That she would push him. That she would be the one thing he couldn’t keep off his mind.
When she helps him with a campaign and rocks it, he knows there is something special about her. But he also knows that he is her boss and he has to keep it professional.
But what if he can’t?
What if he crosses a line?
What he he makes a mistake that will cost him everything that matters to him now?
Annie and Enzo are like oil and water at times but then they also mesh so well.
I love that they got their HEA but it was a wild ride to get there.
He’s the arrogant Manhattan realtor with billboards advertising his six-pack more than his expertise in negotiations.
I’m the competing broker who stupidly moved across the hall from his office.
From day one, I’ve been his sworn enemy. Okay, so I might have accidentally stolen one of his clients. Well, is it stealing if the client comes to me?
Even our vicious banter and loathing gazes can’t hide the chemistry between us. Who can blame me? He has enough charisma to make every hot-blooded woman in the city melt with a single word.
Just when I think a mutual respect could be born between us, the biggest developer in the city offers us an opportunity that pits us against each other.
Time to forget Carmelo Mancini’s dreamy eyes and tight abs.
My Review: 4 stars
This was a good enemies to lovers book.
Bella and Carmelo (Carm) are enemies. They are both in the real estate business and they both want to be the best.
Problem? From the first time they saw each other in real life, they had a connection. A connection that was going to make it hard for them to hate each other. Or would it?
Bella and Carm are both assigned to sale units in a new building. The person who sales their entire floor first gets the entire building.
Everyone loves a competition but what happens when they get towards the end and the rules change?
What happens when they realize that maybe they don’t have to hate each other?
What happens when Carm finds out why Bella changed the type of real estate she does? Will that change everything?
There were times when I wanted to hate Carm, but I couldn’t. He won my heart quickly.
I love that I got my HEA at the end and I am soooo excited for Dom’s book.
He’s the quiet brooding guy who’s owned my heart since I was sixteen but has refused to claim it.
I’m the naïve woman who believes that someday our time will come.
I just didn’t realize that someday would include waking up in Vegas with a raging hangover and a ring on my finger.
If we believed in fate, maybe one of us would’ve trusted that something more powerful than ourselves interceded because our love is one of tangled vines. As twisted and frayed as they’ve become over the years, they’ve never broken.
An annulment seemed like the easy way out. We should’ve known it wouldn’t be fate that intervened, but our Italian Mamas. They can deliver Oscar-worthy performances when heaping on the guilt.
We thought it’d be easy to pretend to be a happily married couple in front of our families for three months and then say we gave it our best shot and go our separate ways.
But nothing is easy when it comes to Dominic Mancini and me. Nothing.
My Review: 4 stars
In the last book, Dirty Filthy Enemy, you leaned a bit more about Dom. You learned he was hiding secrets. Meeting up with someone in secret and telling anyone who it was. Why? Because he had a past with this person. This person was someone he always loved. Valentina.
Dom and Val wake up in Vegas married. A drunken wedding night that neither one remembers. They both know that this was a mistake and would never work.
But…… they realize mom guilt is a real thing. Coming from Italian families, they know their parent won’t be happy. So they make a plan. Stay together until Dom’s cousins wedding then break it off. Make the parents happy for a while and then say it didn’t work out.
What could go wrong? EVERYTHING!!!!
What happens when feelings get involved? What happens when there are misunderstandings?
I have wanted Dom’s story from the start. I knew there was something about him that interested me. He rough and tough but he also has a heart. A heart that he doesn’t show often.
I really enjoyed this story. It was about second chances and being able to fix your past mistakes.
Great job on this series!!!!
