I just finished reading this about half an hour ago and OMG I loved it so much. This would definitely qualify as a slow-burn as both Samiah and Daniel are apprehensive, of starting up anything, for very different reasons. The chemistry is undeniable, from the very first moment they make eye contact, though they both try to remain in the “friendly co-worker” zone they both know the temptation, for more, just keeps growing.
This book does an amazing job of showing multiple layers of each character that just has you loving them more and more as well as rooting for them to be together. I also love that both characters are adults about how they communicate and how they handle whatever situations pop up. There are so many romance novels I’ve read that conflict happens and it’s like the characters revert to middle school and act like children, lashing out, instead of either taking a step back to re-evaluate or communicating until they have clarity. It’s honestly refreshing to find a novel where, although they may be internally freaking out, they take the time to process instead of lashing out like children.
If you’re looking for an office place, slow-burn, romance between two equally caring and career-driven individuals who, try as they might, can’t fight their growing attraction…then look no further! Let me tell you those steamy kisses, and emotional support, are the perfect kindling for the fire that burns between these two.
