I never thought my first kiss would be on my wedding day.
But here I stand, clutching a bouquet of pale pink roses behind the doors of a Las Vegas chapel, and at the end of the aisle is the absolute last man I imagined would be waiting for me.
Bestselling author. Notorious bad boy. Savagely handsome, dark as sin, chiseled as stone. And somehow, my soon-to-be husband.
Marry him, and I’ll land my dream job. Save him, and I’ll walk away with everything I’ve ever wanted. All I have to do is remember it’s all for show. None of it is real, no matter how real it feels.
But first, I have to survive the kiss.
And with lips like his, I don’t stand a chance.
“I had no answers. I had no thoughts of the past or the future, of my fate or the world, or anything beyond Thomas Bane’s lips and hands and arms.”
“I knew the second the universe put you in my path that would change everything.”
“She’s a wish I didn’t know I had.”
“He didn’t smile. He didn’t speak. He didn’t ask questions or need clarification. All he did was kiss me, kiss me with a hundred promises and a sigh drunk with love.”
From the little tastes and tidbits that we’ve been getting from author Staci Hart in regards to Work in Progress, I just knew she was going to have another hit on her hands and boy was I not disappointed. Work in Progress hit all the marks and left me begging and pleading for more.
From the moment I dove into Work in Progress, I was hooked. I couldn’t get enough of Amelia and Thomas. Amelia was so adorable, so quiet and shy. But, when you hit a topic she was passionate about, she somehow found the strength to just let you have it. So, when Thomas presents her with an opportunity to help out with his next book, she’d be a fool to let that chance pass her by. Sure she hates his books, but he’s a great writer with a ton of potential. Not to mention he’s ridiculously good looking and a notorious bad boy. They are the total opposite, but somehow their friendship works. That is until Thomas needs another favor. Amelia goes from never being kissed to suddenly married to Thomas Bane. Everything she could ever want is at her finger tips. She’s just got to survive their fake relationship…
I absolutely adored Work in Progress. I couldn’t help but devour it in one sitting. The characters are fun and entertaining. It’s impossible to not fall in love with them. Thomas and Amelia’s story hooked me from page one and had me dying to see how it would play out. I loved the ease of their relationship. Despite Amelia’s shyness and Thomas’s experience they somehow just meshed well together. Their pull was instant and I loved the banter that they shared. And of course, you can’t forget the sparks. These two had some amazing sparks. Just another reason why I was so glued to the pages.
Work in Progress is a terrific and swoon-worthy read. It’s incredibly well written and will entertain you in many ways. You can never go wrong with a fake relationship that turns into more and this one certainly hit all my marks. From opposites attract to a romance neither one of them saw coming to taking chances and learning who and how to trust….Ugh! I just couldn’t get enough. This series just keeps getting better and better and I can’t help but be hopelessly addicted to it.
