Publisher's Summary

Sleeping with the enemy has never been so complicated. Twenty-eight-year-old Brooklyn Campbell is having a bad day. A speeding ticket, a towed car, and a broken heel are all working against her laid-back vibe. To top it all off, her birth mother, whom she's never met, has requested contact. The only bright spot is an impromptu date with a beautiful and mysterious brunette. Jessica Lennox is what you would call a high-powered executive. She's the head of a multimillion-dollar advertising firm in New York City, and it didn't happen by accident. But when the blonde head turner from the wine bistro turns out to be her number one competitor, her life gets infinitely more complex.
Is New York big enough for both Brooklyn and Jessica? Maybe it's just time they experienced it together...

New York City Romance

Another great work from Melissa Brayden, fitting the romance genre to a 'T'. The performance by Felicity Munroe, is amazing, she brings all the characters to life and performs great ascents for all the different characters - great job!

The romance is centered around Jess (very focused head of her own advertising company) and Brooklyn (partner in a small competing ad company).

What works is the story, it is a great traditional romance, with a conflict in Brooklyn which prevents her from admitting her love to Jessica a. There are a couple of side plots, around a teenager and her mother with a drink problem. As well as Brooklyn finding out she her birth mother wants to see her.

The romance is great, the performance is great, the story and location is very well done. It does start a bit slow, but once it gets going and the characters are established it is very enriching. The narrative is not as snappy as "How Sweet It Is" but the location and descriptions are close to me heart as it is set in NYC . The I<3u moment is very well done.

So why is this not 5 stars. Well just a couple of things. First there are a lot of repeats, again, which become noticeable, 'Starbucks' gets way to much mention in this, I get that it is there for a humors scene which uses this, but it almost feels like product placement. A number of phrases/actions are repeated a few too many times ( hair pushed off her forehead), and, I'm not even sure this is possible, but perhaps too much kissing, oaky in real world its not possible, but in a novel, maybe. This are minor things. It is an engaging listen, and I can relate a lot to the Brooklyn character (it would be nice to believe what is offered to Brooklyn can happen, I have no evidence of it, and perhaps that makes these types of stories bitter/sweet)

Very much recommend it as a very strong lesfic romance.

An easy listen.

Although I would say the story is much of the same. Predictable and nothing special. I liked it all the same and will move on to the second and third in the series at some point soon. The characters are likeable and funny in places. Enjoy.
