★★★★ 4 Stars ★★★★
This is one of those books where the blurb gives nothing away as to what the story is about, other than that it is an erotic tale of a woman who has a chance to fulfil all of her sexual fantasies and decides to go for it. Sometimes a vague blurb can work in your favour because you don’t have many expectations at all and In this case Suite 269 most definitely exceeded them.
The story starts off with Lexa Novak finding out her boyfriend is a cheat, but not only that, he is cheating on her with the bitch from hell from work. They all work for inTrend magazine, Lexa is a fact checker, Trager is the Mail Room guy and the bitch is a top contributor. Now the gossip of the workplace, Lexa is humiliated and upset, but realises that she’s more upset about the embarrassment of it all than the fact that she has to cancel a wedding.
Jameson Holt is the son of the magazine’s owner, and managing editor. He and his father have been trying to save the dying magazine for a while now but are failing. They need help, and fast, but unfortunately the bitch seems to be the only one that can help, much to the chagrin of Lexa.
Jameson hasn’t really noticed the bland looking fact checker before, but when the office rumours bring her to his attention, he suddenly realises that he’s been walking around with his eyes closed for a long time now, because this beautiful and witty woman makes him feel all kinds of things that he’s never really felt with a woman before, so after a few weeks of friendly banter and subtle flirting, he makes her an offer she can’t refuse.
So there we have it, not only is there a nice build up, some hilarious dialogue, a lot of sexual tension and an explosive culmination of said tension, there is a really lovely love story between two soul-mates who have finally found each other.
Fun characters, sweet romance and high on steam = a really great read.
This is a standalone novel, told in dual POV.
