Boyfriend Project, Book 3
From the publisher:
Strong female friendships and a snappy enemies-to-lovers theme take center stage in this highly anticipated romantic comedy from the USA Today bestselling author of The Dating Playbook.
Successful pediatric surgeon London Kelley just needs to find some balance and de-stress. According to her friends Samiah and Taylor, what London really needs is a casual hookup. A night of fun with no strings. But no one—least of all London—expected it to go down at her high school reunion with Drew Sullivan, millionaire, owner of delicious abs, and oh yes, her archnemesis.
Now London is certain the road to hell is paved with good sex. Because she’s found out the real reason Drew’s back in Austin: to decide whether her beloved hospital remains open. Worse, Drew is doing everything he can to show her that he’s a decent guy who actually cares. But London’s not falling for it. Because while sleeping with the enemy is one thing, falling for him is definitely not part of the plan.
“Masterful…a winning romance.”―Kirkus, starred reviewhttps://amzn.to/3ekqFrj
“Rochon’s skillful handling of her lead couple’s sexual fast-burn and emotional slow-burn, coupled with her well-rounded characters, make it impossible not to fall in love with this smart story.”―Publishers Weekly
High school rivals London and Drew haven’t seen each other since they were co-valedictorians in high school. She became a pediatric surgeon, and he became a hedge fund manager and all the money that implies. They meet up at their 15 year high school reunion that London has organized in her spare time (ha!) The attraction startles London, but she’s hated Drew for so long that she can’t give in to her feelings.
On the other hand, Drew has had a crush on London since they met in high school when he decided the way to impress her was to best her grades; hence the co-valedictorians. But was he wrong about that!
Fifteen years later and their mutual attraction is so hot neither of them can ignore it, but London manages to convince herself she can have sex without any feelings getting involved. But it turns out Drew’s career has taken a bit of a turn.
With more than enough money to never have to work another day again, Drew’s latest venture is to help hospitals get their financials in order. In this case, it’s the county (public) hospital where London works. His company will be there doing an audit for a few weeks, to determine whether or not they should sell the hospital to a private owner or keep it public. London wants it to be kept public, and really so does Drew but with him, it’s all about the numbers.
Butting heads by day and sleeping together at night brings them much closer than London could ever have imagined. There are a lot of laughs along the way, along with heated battles and some hot sex until they reach their happy ending. An excellent ending to a terrific trilogy!
