Sarah’s Musings…

3.5 Gummy Bear CROWNS
I was elated to get my hands on my very first Jessica Hawkins book. I have heard nothing but great things about her series and her writing, and I found both enjoyable characters and prose in Right Where I Want You.
Sebastian was an interesting hero. On the surface (and the cover) he appears to the be the complete CEO playboy, but interestingly enough he was more than that. I liked the layers to him, the different background, the genuine heart and well-mannered gentleman that laid beneath the exterior.
Georgina, just like her counterpart, is an unusual heroine. Neither completely fierce or completely docile, she straddles the line between the two. I enjoyed her character most, though, when she was in her element and taking charge, not in a “I’m going to tell you what to do and you’ll listen” type of way but an “I am going to win you over with my charm and kindess” type of way.
The dialogue between them is fun and often witty and there is a considerable amount of time spent on this aspect of their relationship, at times making the pacing of the story stall out for me. The emotional chemistry and banter was not enough to sustain my interest for long periods of time. Did I dislike it? No. I did, however, find myself putting the book down and doing other things. When Georgina and Sebastian finally get together, it was wholeheartedly them, but, as a reader, I didn’t really feel the steam. One aspect of the plot that I did truly love was the epilogue. Sweet and charming, Jessica Hawkins really brought the feeling of home and the stories of the characters full circle.
While Right Where I Want You wasn’t a “knock me off my socks” read, I did find the authors writing to be enjoyable and the characters entertaining. I would definitely pick more books by her in the future.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.


There’s a thin line between love and hate . . . and it
cuts right through the middle of their office.
Bad boys? They run
right over good girls like Georgina Keller.
But after a
confidence-shattering breakup, she’s determined not to let anyone at her new
workplace push her around—least of all the brooding creative director, a “bad
boy of publishing” who’s made it clear she’s enemy #1.
Sebastian Quinn’s
taste for fast cars, late nights, and beautiful women may have gotten him to
the top of a leading New York magazine, but the reputation that made him is
suddenly threatening to end his career.
Georgina can
help Modern Man shed its bad reputation, but in order to do
that, she’ll have to start at the top—and no amount of rakish charm or
inconvenient attraction will distract her.
Because if Sebastian
gets her right where he wants her, it means she’s going down.

Excerpt

At the stadium’s concession stand, I took a tall stool, putting Georgina and I at eye level since she stood. “So, why didn’t you kiss François?” I asked. “Bad breath?”

She gasped into her hand. “My breath is fine.”

“I meant his. I’m sure yours is pure relish on a hotdog.”

She made a face. “Gross.”

“I happen to love relish,” I said. “But does François?”

Each time I said François with flourish, she flinched. I didn’t care. Something about him bugged me—I just couldn’t put my finger on it.

“We didn’t kiss because you interrupted us,” she pointed out.

“So? If I were in his position, and we both wanted that kiss, I wouldn’t let anyone stop me.”

Frank and I are clicking,” she said, scowling. “There was even mention of spending time at his summerhouse.”

“Hamptons?”

She coughed into her fist. “Boca Raton.”

The idea of Georgina spending a summer with him in Boca Raton was tragic enough that I almost smiled. I got the sense she was playing up the date. If it was so great, why wasn’t she sitting here with him? And why was I more relieved than smug about that? “Meanwhile, Justin and I will be clamming in Montauk.”

“You two should really just make it official and announce your love to the world.”

“But then I wouldn’t get to flirt with pretty girls.”

“For someone who pretends to have as much game as you,” she said, “I still haven’t seen you successfully flirt with any girls since I’ve known you.”

I smirked. “How do you know I’m not flirting with you right now?”
