It all started with a sexy selfie.
Texted to the wrong number.
Not my finest moment—but I have nothing to be ashamed of.
She thought I was no better, and I quote, than the knuckle-dragging douche-bags she was never dating again.
It was a stupid dare from a girl I’d met online, but since she’d given me a fake number, I didn’t feel bad that my interests were suddenly focused elsewhere—on the fiery and sharp-tongued, Peyton that I found myself sparring with over text for the rest of the evening.
The following day, my case of mistaken identity came back to bite me in the banana.
When I strolled into the office, I was introduced to Peyton as the new client I needed to win over. The Peyton, in case you’re not tracking.
And let’s just say she had my full attention.
Beauty? Oh yeah.
And the best part? She hated me on sight.
Dear God, do I love a challenge.
Let the games begin.
I love when the attraction between two people is established by something other than their looks, and while Peyton Richards may have been drawn to Josh Hanson due to a sexy selfie gone wrong and a fake phone number, the quick witted text exchange that they share creates a connection unlike one either has experienced and one that just might be worth the risk…that is until they find out that their soon-to-be professional relationship makes anything personal between them not exactly forbidden but quite ill-advised.
Thus begins a partnership full of complications due to a bevy of sexual tension, a more than apparent electric connection, and a professional line that both Peyton and Josh can’t help but want to cross, even if it’s less than ideal given their professional commitments.
Who would have thought that a sexy selfie gone wrong and a fake phone number would lead Josh Hanson and Peyton Richards down a complicated path – one full of sexual tension, an electric connection, and a professional partnership that just turned their personal lives upside down.
It’s interesting to watch Josh and Peyton figure out what they want and what they’re willing to risk in order to take their shot at love. I’m glad that Kendall Ryan allows readers to be privy to both the hero and the heroine’s internal musings because it offers a full picture of what’s at stake, both personally and professionally, for them and for those who rely on them. Both of them have good heads on their shoulders and understand what it means to sacrifice for their career, but they also deserve a personal life and the fact that they are drawn to each other so intensely provides them with enough desire to perhaps find a way to make both parts of their lives flow seamlessly together in a way that benefits them in all ways possible.
Kendall Ryan, once again, weaves a bit of drama, a large dose of humor, and quite a bit of steam together to create an enjoyable romantic comedy – one that includes a group of dynamic supporting characters, especially a certain meddling grandma who is as endearing as she is frustrating, at least from her granddaughter’s perspective. The way Josh and Peyton first meet and their attempts to remain professional illustrate why it was always going to be more than business between them and the way Ryan crafts the story in that direction will have readers laughing and swooning a number of times through Junk Mail.
