Loverboy (The Company #2)
by Sarina Bowen
4 Pie Worthy CROWNS
I really loved the storyline of Loverboy because I love any type of suspense in a novel. As a reader, it is my kryptonite, and Sarina Bowen delivered a novel that has the charm of her books, with lovable character and sweet and steamy romance, while also having a plot line that was filled with mystery and intrigue.
Gunnar is completely adorable and charming. I loved seeing him in the coffee shop, making coffee and chatting with the customers. Not only was it endearing her the reader and heroine alike, it also allowed the author to develop his characterization in a real and authentic way. Bowen really nailed the sweet hero who can also protect you at all costs character. He was one of my more favorite Sarina Bowen heroes.
Posy was adorable. Her character and her hormones made me chuckle so many times while listening to audiobook, and while it was funny, I think it also allowed readers to connect with her in a real way. What really makes Posy an amazing heroine is that she stands back up when she has been knocked down. She doesn’t sit around waiting to be saved or waiting for someone to fix her life. She is strong and saves herself.
The plot is a mix of fun, steamy, and suspenseful. Bowen moves through these parts expertly, and each aspect of the story flows into the other, providing a cohesive romance that is thoroughly entertaining.
Loverboy is a complete standalone in this brand new world, and I am really enjoying the characters and the more suspenseful elements involved with this series.
***If you love audiobooks, I would highly recommend this one. The narrators pull you into the story and work really well together as a pair. I found myself engaging with the story, feeling like I was a part of the world.
Secrets, desires, and exquisite pie. It’s all in a day’s work at The Company.
Growing up, I was the rough guy from the wrong neighborhood who couldn’t catch a break. Posy was the pampered girl I tried to impress. But I managed to steal only a single kiss before I had to skip town.
Now I’m back, and the tables are turned. Posy runs a struggling pie shop. I’m the VP of a secretive billion dollar security company.
Not that I can tell her.
There’s a murderer on the loose in New York, and he seems to spend a lot of time at Posy’s shop. I can’t let on that I’m here to bring him down before he can harm a hair on her pretty head.
Going undercover as Posy’s new barista wasn’t my idea. I don’t even drink coffee. But now I have to call her “boss,” and do everything the curvy perfectionist asks of me. I’d forgotten how much we infuriate each other, and that she somehow fills me with both irritation and desire in the same breath.
There’s nobody more skilled at stealth ops than me. I can bring this killer down. Right after I take a cold shower. And just as soon as I figure out how to make a skinny peppermint latte with milk poured in the shape of a kitten…
