The Romans had carpe diem; I have carpe David.
You know what’s frustrating about the love of my life? He thinks he’s in love with someone else…and has been dating her for five years! I know, right?
Then they suddenly break up. And he and I are on the same business trip. My chance to convince him we’re meant to be!
Except when I go to his suite in my sexiest lingerie and with my sexiest toys, David’s gone. Instead, there’s some guy who thinks I’m the evening’s professional entertainment.
Walking out of the room should’ve been the end of it…
…until that man, Luke, shows up again, ostensibly to return something I left behind. (A sex toy…a very very dirty one…)
…and refuses to go away because we apparently have “chemistry.” And okay, he’s admittedly hot, but there’s more to a relationship than chemistry, right…?
What have I done to deserve this?

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
When David breaks up with his long-term girlfriend, it’s the moment Sammie has been waiting for. Sammie decides to surprise David on a business trip by waiting in his hotel room in just lingerie – only its, not David that turns up, its a random guy who thinks Sammie is that evening’s entertainment. Cue Sammie fleeing the scene and hoping like hell to not run into Luke again, except Luke has other ideas.
I really enjoyed That Man Next Door so I was really excited to read this book I was not disappointed. I thought the story was really good. I found myself laughing a lot throughout, there were so many funny moments, particularly the parts involving sex toys in the workplace!
I liked both Sammie and Luke. I thought Sammie was relatable in that like so many of us sometimes do, she has been going after something that she thought she wanted but when she was really honest with herself she realized that she wanted something entirely different. Luke was really lovely I just wish this book had been duel POV’s because I would really have liked to read things from his perspective and see what was going on is his mind.
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this story.
