R E V I E W ➠ Hard Place by Emily Goodwin
Cold. Callous. Cocky.
A total playboy with abs for days, a panty-melting smirk, and a face the gods themselves would be jealous of.
And he’s my new boss.
None of that matters, because as a single mom, men like Alexander Harding are the last thing I need. What I do need is this job, so I’m going to keep my head down, work hard, and avoid that asshole as much as humanly possible.
But then he gives me an offer I can’t refuse, even though everything inside of me is warning me to run away and never look back. It’s just one weekend. One weekend to convince a bunch of stuffy investors that Alexander has changed from the player who spent more time in the bedroom than the boardroom into a family man they’d be happy to go into business with.
But the more time I spend with him, the more I realize that there might be a beating heart buried under his designer shirts and spectacular pecs after all…which is bad news for me.
Because the only thing worse than hating your boss is falling in love with him.

He has muscular forearms, and seeing that little but of tan skin shouldn’t make heat flash through me, I swallow hard, trying to push the image of his deft fingers moving up to his collar, slowly unbuttoning his shirt out of my head.-Harper
Alex…who’s only wearing a towel. It’s wrapped dangerously low around his waist and I’ve never wished for telekinetic powers more in my life.-Harper
Not my first read form the author, she happens to be ONE OF MY FAVORITE authors! So I am very familiar with her writing style and the fact this is a start to a new SERIES gah, gold!!
Boy does this book start off with a bang! Struggle on top of struggle, you will feel all the feels of this single mom of two twin-daughters. Harper is a 25 year old beautiful, smart and happy personality single mom. Who happens to be struggling in many ways that is, when she gets offered a promotion in sorts, she really doesn’t have a choice and jumps at the chance to get a little ahead in life. She has lost so much and one night many moons ago wasn’t the right idea but the outcome is as beautiful. Little did she know though, the prick from the other night who stole her parking spot at the new school…is her new boss! BOOM!
Alex is a cocky, successful handsome man. He is well known for his worth ethic, rather enjoys it along with his string of non-string attachments if you will. But behind closed doors he is just a man who was mistreated in his childhood, who wasn’t shown love but brutality of the hard life at such a young age. He himself is sick of the long working nights, no one to really come home to and the nameless meaningless sex. When he finally get’s a spark from a woman, he can never really have her. SO MUCH IN BETWEEN!!
Alex loves Harper’s smile because it lights up the room and Harper can’t not look at the cocky but so sad boss of hers who wears the shit out of a suit! *sweating* When one night proves to be almost fate, this is where you fall in love with Alex *swoon swoon swoon* aside from all, he really does have a beautiful heart and mid-way you’ll see why! It shocked the hell out of Harper almost missing a beat to the lie. Since then things seem to smooth out enough to where Harper is talking to Alex again and not just work related. It’s all great until you REALLY can’t deny fate. It’s just so beautiful, two broken people in their own way to come together and GAH just swoony and beautiful! YES THAT’S A WORD, GO WITH IT! B U T not all lies even good intention ones are without fault, this is heartbreaking one too!! #havetissues
