It’s just business, nothing personal. Until you have to work with your ex.
Nothing Personal, an all-new standalone romantic comedy by New York Times Bestselling author Karina Halle is live!
4 Supernova CROWNS
Nothing Personal by Karina Halle is a bit a departure from her typical work, but it offers up a host of LAUGH OUT LOUD moments, sizzling chemistry, and a second chance romance that will make you smile!
Nova and Kessler are incredibly likable characters. They each have their outlandish moments, their quirky characteristics, but I found them to be endearing. Like most of her couples, these two have incredible chemistry. Anytime they touch is explosive.
Nothing Personal is filled with some absurd moments, which are LOL funny, and Halle fully intends for these moments to be absurd (think Meghan Quinn-Esque type of humor) and to make you laugh. The hilarity at times takes away from the emotional intimacy of the couple, though. Additionally, the conflict, which is unexpected, is too surface level and resolved to quickly. I know it is romcom, and most conflicts in this trope are but I still need a conflict with a bit more substance. The resolution and the epilogue are super cute and give readers that always sought HEA.
While I do prefer Halle’s more angstier, grittier stories, I still enjoyed Nothing Personal. It was light and fun, a good escape from the world.

Nova Lane is having the worst week possible. Her latest relationship ended while on her much-needed vacation, then upon her first day back at work, she learns that her beloved boss has quit – and despite having worked so hard for it, she’s not being considered for his position.
Who is being considered for the position is none other than Kessler Rocha. Her ex-coworker and ex-lover, Kessler’s the man who broke her heart five years earlier and the reason she moved thousands of miles away, switched jobs, and created numerous voodoo dolls in Kessler’s (very burly, very handsome) liking.
Yup. Worst week ever.
New in town and on her turf, Kessler promises he’s not the same man he was – and considering he’s now a single father to a precocious toddler, he’s telling the truth.
But he’s still an arrogant, devilish and dangerously intelligent man who’s taking over the position Nova feels she deserves. The fact that he’s gotten even more sexy over the years doesn’t help either.
Now Nova and Kessler have the choice to let bygones be bygones, or fight with each other every chance they get, with unresolved sexual tension only adding fuel to the flames, creating a fire that might just burn down the whole office.
In the corporate world they say it’s just business, nothing personal.
Nova and Kessler are about to show just how personal things can get.
