REVIEW COORDINATED BY:
It started out like any other morning on the train.
Until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle.
He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world.
Who did the stuck-up suit think he was…God?
Actually, he looked like a God. That was about it.
When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out.
I might have picked it up.
I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers.
I might have held onto the mystery man’s phone for days—until I finally conjured up the courage to return it.
When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me.
So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk’s office.
I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first though.
I didn’t expect him to text back.
I didn’t expect our exchanges to be hot as hell.
I didn’t expect to fall for him—all before we even met.
The two of us couldn’t have been any more different.
Yet, you know what they say about opposites.
When we finally came face to face, we found out opposites sometimes do more than attract—we consumed each other.
Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for where I’d wind up when the ride was over.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.
REVIEWERS NOTE: Stuck-Up Suit is a standalone, adult, contemporary romance written by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland. I was gifted a copy from the authors in exchange for an honest review through The Rock Stars of Romance.
5 “Big Blue Balls” Stars!
Absolutely Amazing Read!
Stuck-Up Suit is sexy, fun and completely addicting! I couldn’t put this read down. It has everything I love most in a romantic read and I didn’t want it to end!
From the moment this books opens, you can tell you're in for a treat. Soraya Vennedetta’s character is wild, opinionated, bold and sassy. I loved almost everything about her. She was a bit insecure at times, but she had a “take-no-bull” attitude which works perfectly for the Stuck-Up Suit she can’t stop obsessing over.
Graham Morgan has carried his painful past for years, so he’s developed a snide attitude with an impenetrable wall around his heart. On the surface, he presents a cold, uncaring persona. On the inside, he’s hiding from the pain of betrayal and loss. But from the moment Soraya’s voice interrupts his daily tirade, he’s soulstruck.
These two meet in an unexpected and refreshing way. From flirty, engaging texts, to a slow build get-to-know-you romance, to some seriously sexy talk in the bedroom, I couldn’t put this book down. Soraya is the assistant to an advice columnist titled Dear Ida and the way the authors incorporate this into the story was brilliant. It made it even more playful and exciting.
I adored Graham’s character to no end. He may have been a little rough around the edges in the beginning, but you could always see past that to what he was hiding underneath and you couldn’t help but fall in love with him ... and his dirty mouth! This guy could talk the habit off a devout nun. I loved how bold and sexy he was! These authors know how to write a lascivious, smart, powerful alpha, who delivers on the promise of lots of swooning and tummy butterflies. Graham is the perfect product of these two minds coming together.
This story touched on some intense moments of character self doubt, emotionally charged past demons resurfacing, as well as abandonment issues (all of which I loved!) but it also stayed light hearted and achieved a fantastic and hopeful story with amazing characters, lively dialogue and a truly romantic ending. Even adding in the cliché catty ex to hike up the drama was done brilliantly, bringing just enough upheaval to keep my angst-loving heart happy.
The Wrap Up:
You can’t go wrong reading any book by these authors individually, because they are AH-MAZING! But put these two together to create a story and you’ve got SPECTACULAR! I can’t rave about this book enough. It was smart, sexy and full of fun. And if it’s possible, I loved this book even more than their first one, Cocky Bastard. Stuck-Up Suit is definitely a MUST READ!
On an ending note, it was awesome to get a glimpse of Chance... aka Cocky Bastard, and Pixy... aka Esmeralda Snowflake...aka Mutton from Cocky Bastard. Chance and his sage advice to Graham was a fantastic scene! Thank you authors! <3
