Opening Line: “Every time I collect my mail from the paint-spattered box in the lobby and see my name printed over and over in black ink, I’m reminded that I’m named after a rock star.”

Description
Marketing manager Henley Evans barely has time for herself, let alone family, friends, or dating. But when she’s shortlisted for her dream promotion, the sacrifices finally seem worth it.

If only Graeme Crawford-Collins, the remote social media manager/bane of her existence, wasn’t also up for the position. Although they’ve never met in person, their epic email battles are the stuff of office legend.

The task: draft a proposal on how to boost bookings in the Galápagos.
The catch? They have to go on a company cruise…together.

But when they meet on the ship, Henley is shocked to discover that the real Graeme is nothing like she imagined – and the line between loathing and liking is thinner than a postcard.

With her career dreams in sight and a growing attraction to the competition, Henley begins questioning her life choices. Because what’s the point of working all the time if you never actually live?

Review
5 / 5

I absolutely adored this book and it was the perfect bit of escapism I needed to start the year off!

All of the characters were brilliant, not just the main ones of Henley and Graeme. I especially loved Nikolai too!

I think what I liked so much about this book is that, yes it’s a romance so you have that brilliant enemies to lovers trope, but you also have this wonderful adventure in the Galápagos Islands and a story about a strong female lead dominating her way in what can sometimes be a mans world.

The romantic parts weren’t overly cheesy and I also liked the fact that any “steamy” moments they had were not described in detail…I really don’t feel it’s necessary so this book was perfect for that.

As mentioned, whilst this is a romance, I feel it’s more centred around Henley and her promotion at work. The ending definitely gave me 13 Going on 30 vibes with the whole presentation!

Overall if you want a book that will take you on an adventure, fill your heart with love and have you cheering on the female lead then this is the book for you!
