Blog Tour + Review: Hard Place (Hard to Love #1)

Hard Place, an all-new standalone enemies to lovers/office romance by Emily Goodwin is LIVE!

Cold. Callous. Cocky.

A total playboy with abs for days, a panty-melting smirk, and a face the gods themselves would be jealous of.

And he’s my new boss.

None of that matters, because as a single mom, men like Alexander Harding are the last thing I need. What I do need is this job, so I’m going to keep my head down, work hard, and avoid that asshole as much as humanly possible.

But then he gives me an offer I can’t refuse, even though everything inside of me is warning me to run away and never look back. It’s just one weekend. One weekend to convince a bunch of stuffy investors that Alexander has changed from the player who spent more time in the bedroom than the boardroom into a family man they’d be happy to go into business with.

But the more time I spend with him, the more I realize that there might be a beating heart buried under his designer shirts and spectacular pecs after all…which is bad news for me.

Because the only thing worse than hating your boss is falling in love with him.

Review | Rating: 5 stars

I think by now it's no secret that I am a huge fan of almost everything Emily Goodwin writes. So when I learned she was writing a new romance series that was an office romance, I had to make sure I got an early copy and I read this book. I have to say I was not disappointed. I loved everything about Hard Place and the angst and slow-burn was everything. I loved Harper so much. She was so down to earth, sweet, caring, and such an amazing mother. She put her children first all the time and that's what I loved about her so much. She felt guilty for not being able to provide them with everything she thought the needed and not having the energy or time to spend time and play with them. But she was also quirky and awkward. I could totally relate to her in that sense. Alex was amazing and I loved him from the start too. Learning his background and why he was the way he was made it so easy for me to relate to him. I totally understood his stance on love and relationships and why he was so adamant to be alone. He was a scarred man who finally found someone worth letting into his life when he met Harper and it was the same for her. Emily did a good job of building up the sexual tension between Harper and Alex while slowly moving their relationship from strictly professional to something less so. The dynamic of their relationship was so well done and realistic. I loved everything about them. They fit together and it was clear they could offer each other something that would complete the other. I thought the slow-burn was really the best and that they danced around each other and their feelings for most of the book. When it all finally came to a head, it was that much more explosive and steamy. And that freaking ending! I need Hard Truth right now, Emily! I am so excited for the next book and to see where Harper and Alex after the revelation at the end of the book. October cannot get here fast enough!
