Book Review and Giveaway for Egomaniac by Vi Keeland


The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office.
I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills.
He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.

Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant.
Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.

Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated.
Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent.
I was swindled out of ten grand.

The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place.
I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind.
I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.

The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages.
The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing.
And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.

By now, I'm pretty sure you don't need me to tell you how amazing this book was. Everyone has already commented, and all the lists and charts are there to prove it's worth. And it IS worthy because it was THAT good. So, I get to tell you how it made me it pulled me in and made me laugh hard, out loud - all day long. I loved the give and take, the smart-assery in full effect and the witty banter they had with each other. Drew deserves commendations for his comebacks!! I laughed SO hard at the crazy stuff he said to Emerie and that made this book so relatable and easy to read.

But the relationship between them was REAL. And by that, I mean that we got to see his walls come down, exceptions being made and he unknowingly started to make a friendship blossom with a promise of more. I honestly loved watching this grow. I was able to relate to the little nuances of a new love coming to fruition right under their noses. Their banter was easy and smooth without any awkwardness at all. It was a true depiction of the ease of falling in love....without even realizing it. I loved the dynamics of their releationship. With real fears and insecurities playing into it, it added some honest realism to deal with. The chills, sighable moments and touch of angst topped off this book perfectly.

Did I wish for more? Well, yeah! Of course I did, because I am fairly sure I didn't want this book to end. Ever. It was funny and it defined the RomCom genre to a "T". This was a perfect blend of opposites attract, coworkers (ish) falling in love and friends to lovers. This book was flawless. Epically flawless.

Oh! And I want to play pool with Drew.
