He always gets his way…until he meets his match.
“I need you back. Now.”
I can’t believe I’m letting my ex-boss talk me into working for him again. He’s arrogant. Domineering. He gets under my skin in ways I don’t want to admit. When I quit, it felt great! But now, seeing the big, bad billionaire rendered helpless by a baby, I give in to his demand. And I’m worried it won’t be the last time…
Big Shot by Katy Evans blends the office romance with a forced proximity and an enemies to lovers bent into a quick read! Will and India do NOT get along. India hates how rude Will is and she finally quits…but then agrees to come back for 2 weeks.
Will is emotionally stunted and I wish this character trait was a bit more fleshed out. He is so different from his brother, yet Will blames his behavior on always trying to please his father. It made him seem like a very static character. But, he does have some character growth and he gets some support from his father and brother which helped bolster their relationships as well. India is a smart woman who put up with her job for longer than most people would have. She and Will could be a bit immature in their actions toward one another which was odd since they were both successful professionals. I guess its kind of like that time in kindergarten when you liked a boy and expressed that by calling him names and he responded by stealing your stuff: Juvenile but a little adorable to watch.
Big Shot by Katy Evans had some flaws that didn’t make it a stellar read for me but I think the book will tick a lot of boxes for many readers. The sexual tension in the hate to love you vibe of Will and India is palpable and the forced proximity of them working from his home really adds a layer of strain to their situation. Add in a cute baby who is teething and you have an adorable workaholic hero with a lack of social graces and an assistant who, despite her protests to the contrary, seems to care for him regardless.
