From the New York Times Bestselling authors of Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

It started out like any other morning on the train.
Until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle.
He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world.
Who did the stuck-up suit think he was...God?
Actually, he looked like a God. That was about it.
When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out.
I might have picked it up.
I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers.
I might have held onto the mystery man's phone for days―until I finally conjured up the courage to return it.
When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me.
So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk's office.
I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first though.
I didn't expect him to text back.
I didn't expect our exchanges to be hot as hell.I didn't expect to fall for him―all before we even met.
The two of us couldn't have been any more different.
Yet, you know what they say about opposites.
When we finally came face to face, we found out opposites sometimes do more than attract―we consumed each other.
Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn't prepared for where I'd wind up when the ride was over.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.

Stuck-Up Suit is a cute opposites-attract story. Soraya and Graham meet in a fun and unconventional way. This seems to be a pattern for Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward—and I like it. Although they get off to a rough start, Soraya and Graham are able to look beyond outward appearances and they find themselves falling quickly for each other.

Graham is über sexy but so unbelievably rude in the beginning, and I loved Soraya’s willingness to call him out on his crap. She’s truly the comic relief in this story with her penchant for sarcasm and her brutal advice-giving. She embraces her uniqueness with confidence, including her constantly changing hair color. To Graham’s disbelief, his personality undergoes a 360 under Soraya’s influence, and he’s transformed into the most attentive boyfriend any woman could ever hope to have.

Their past experiences color their impressions about love, which place some hurdles in their dating life. Graham has the greatest reason to be reluctant to love someone, and yet it’s Soraya who spends the majority of the book being fearful of her feelings for him—despite Graham’s constant reassurances. It grew rather tiresome, and the choices she makes toward the end just made me groan in aggravation.

There are several endearing supporting characters that help make Stuck-Up Suit a delightful romantic comedy.
