Sam Huxton doesn’t do one-night stands, especially not with men she’s just met! But the hot guy at the bar was hard to resist and one night is all they share – no names, no numbers, just some much needed fun…
Until the same guy walks into Sam’s life the next day as her new employee. Sam never mixes business with pleasure and makes it clear an office fling with Ryan is off-limits. But after-hours…one thing can lead to another. Can Sam trust her heart and her business with the new guy?
The New Guy by Kathryn Freeman is filled with a lot of drama. It’s funny, charming, angsty, and romantic. A woman CEO, Sam, goes to a bar, gets drunk, and hits on the hot brooding guy next to her. At first, I didn’t like either character in this first meeting. Afterwards, I liked them both better. Meeting the sober, Sam and the brooding code writer, Ryan, it was interesting. Never a dull moment. Their chemistry is instant. It explodes every time they’re in a room together. However, Sam is the boss and she’s trying to ignore their chemistry and memories of their hot one night stand. Ryan cannot forget about that night either. Each day, he is more interested in the gorgeous red head for a boss. But after one disastrous work relationship, Sam is scared. This writer’s style works. Each page was entertaining, the story was action-packed enough to keep my attention.
