Love, Sincerely, Yours by Meghan Quinn and Sara Ney
Narrated by Ava Erickson and Alexander Cendise
Standalone Romantic Comedy
When I saw Meghan Quinn and Sara Ney were writing a book together, I kind of plotzed right then and there. Meghan is a top 5 author for me, and I enjoyed what I read of Sara. The two together would be unstoppable! Plus I love office romances, I love enemies to lovers, and more than anything, I absolutely love relationships that develop online, in fact, it’s my #1 favorite trope. So Love, Sincerely, Yours is right up my alley.
“Rome Blackburn is woods and rivers and adventure. He is excitement. He is an asshole. Rome Blackburn is a freaking prick.”
Peyton has worked for Rome for years and she has harbored a secret crush the entire time. But everyone in the office either hates the boss or is scared to death of him.
“He was known as a sadist and an egomanic, and a tyrant, but I knew deep down, he was a soulful gentleman with an alpha tendency that was going to bring me to my knees.”
Peyton is starting her own marketing firm, has given her two weeks notice and is out celebrating when she accidentally reveals her crush to her friends. They, in turn, set her up with an anonymous email address to send him an email.
Rome is a workaholic. He is a rule follower. He also has a major stick up his ass. So when he gets the email, he is shocked and appalled that an employee would send it to him. But he’s also…intrigued. And he can’t get that subject out of his mind.
“Wait, was that a love letter? I want to bang you so hard. Most certainly not a love letter, unless that’s how millennials wax poetic now.”
He writes back in the hopes of tracking down who it’s from, and an anonymous online flirtation starts up. My favorite part of the book was how exasperated Rome was with all of it. He’s shocked and excited at once, and he just doesn’t know how to process all the dirty flirtation. I loved that he wasn’t the playboy all the girls crush on like you usually find in these books, but instead, they all can’t stand him. But Peyton sees behind the facade, and she wants in.
“Pull your pants down, Rome. I’m about to rock your fucking world.”
Doesn’t she know?
She already has.”
- I loved that Rome wasn’t a playboy at all.
- I loved Hunter and want his story!
- Rome kept being completely surprised at his own reactions, that was my favorite part of the book.
- I smiled the whole time.
- It was fun from the first word to the last.
- I loved Peyton, she was sassy and had guts!
- The ending felt rushed.
- I felt like I never completely connected with the characters.
- The two older books I read right after this were so similar, that I feel like this lacked a little uniqueness.
I love how his exasperation totally comes through. He was so great at being Rome, but I HATE how he does a woman, it almost sounds like he is mocking them, and I think that may have taken a little from the book for me. Ava Erickson is amazing and quickly becoming a favorite narrator for me.
