Fired Series: Worked Up #1
on October 31, 2017
In this fiery series debut from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Brent, a workplace romance might prove too hot to handle.
Still reeling from a nasty divorce, Melanie Cruz’s pride takes another beating when she loses her enviable job at an upscale resort. After a flurry of unsuccessful interviews, she finally—desperately—accepts a job managing a small chain of family-owned pizzerias in a quaint downtown Phoenix neighborhood. The job also comes with Dominic Esposito, her overbearing but ridiculously handsome boss. Falling for him might be the last thing she expects, but maybe it’s the one thing she needs.
As hard as they try to resist, Melanie and Dominic embark on a romance as hot as a brick oven, and Melanie has every reason to believe that maybe, this time, she’s finally found “the one.”
But Dominic has a secret—one even his family doesn’t know. And the scandal could threaten everything he and Melanie have worked for…in business and in love.
5 Sweet Amazing Stars!
WOW! I can’t believe how much I loved this book! It was awesome! Extraordinary! Unbelievable!
I feel like a kid on Christmas Day, that’s how excited I am. 🙂
Let me tell you a little bit about it. It’s the story of a man, who wants nothing more than to redeem himself. His focus is solely on work, on opening a second family restaurant, but a beautiful, smart, new employee turn his world upside down, in the sweetest way possible.
The author does an amazing job putting the story together and creating such strong characters. Dominic might appear a huge jackass, but as his sister-in-law said, he has many layers and he’s mysterious, so it’s a thrill to peal each of those layers and discover a fine man, whom you can’t help falling in love with.
Melanie is lovely, a little sassy and not shy to ask for what she wants, when she wants it. Try as you might, you won’t find a flaw in her character.
Working hard to be a part of something great, she takes her part in making this story amazing.
I’m the luckiest girl in the world to have received the honor to read this ARC. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
