Poetry professor Naomi Price is loved by her students, happily works around the clock, and has credentials no one could deny. Except, it seems, for her arch-nemesis at Hainamor University. The man never has anything polite to say, and now the two of them are competing for a prestigious honor that just so happens to come with a cash award. With every move Naomi makes to impress her colleagues, her rival is right there beside her, elbow to elbow, making it impossible to ignore how devastatingly hot he is—even if he is a total bastard.
Sebastian Blake knows what Naomi thinks of him, and he’s trying hard not to care. Maybe he’s been grouchy with her in the past, but she isn’t making his life any easier with her crusade to win over the Personnel Committee and earn an honor that is rightfully his. Naomi just doesn’t quit, and though he’d never admit it, there’s something sexy about her. Something that has him tied up in knots. Something that makes him want to move beyond his painful past and take a chance—at least for as long as it takes to kiss her silly and see what happens next.
|A funny story that has a pottery professor Naomi Price who is looked up to by her students, and English professor Sebastian Blake. Both of them have a snarky attitude towards each other. Hers began the first day she met him and when she gave everyone in the department small home cakes and he threw his in the trash. That day forward all the comments he makes to her are a smart-ass, or some days they can be mean and hurtful. Though days she works on making sure she does not show that he got to her. This slowly begins to change when they are both up for the same award. Now they must work around the campus in helping students, and slowly they begin to talk. It really changes when she shows up at his house one night when he did not show up for work. Bringing chicken soup the house does not look like it would be his. After some discussion, they begin to change towards each other. But does he really want someone to get that close again because of his past, and does he think he deserves any type of happiness? Maybe he will change his mind when he drives Naomi away. This is a much better book and story than I am describing in my review. The characters all of them are good and I liked that the author even had NaNo writing month since it is next month. A very good book. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars.
