In the second book of the light romantic suspense book series, The Company, we get Gunner and Posy’s story.
Gunnar is the VP of a private security company called ‘the company’ ?? If you’ve read the first book in the series, you might be familiar with the concept of the company but its revisited here for anyone who doesn’t know. His current undercover assignment leads him back to NYC, which he hates but when he hears about his former crush/nemesis being in trouble and he agrees. Posy has recently opened a coffee/pie shop, ditched her husband and is in a dire need for a barista since her last two employees fell in love and decided to leave the city life. Enter one Gunnar, undercover barista who doesn’t even drink coffee, kinda but not really hates Posy definitely feels betrayed by her though to investigate the cyber crime happening in Posy’s shop.
I liked Gunnar from the get go, same with Posy. With their history and the inconvenient attraction, the work place romance of falling for your boss also added a fun element. There is suspense and intrigue especially the nifty gadgets but as said previously its pretty light and doesn’t take the attention away from the romance. I liked Gunnar and Posy together, they were sweet, funny and adorable! Plus there is a bigger arc happening with the company that I’m looking forward to exploring in the next book and of course Max (the founder/boss of the company), I neeeed his book!
This is a second chance, with old misunderstandings, new secrets and opposite attracts romance book. Loverboy has, what I call traditional Sarina Bowen humour and her ability to make me love her characters and fall in love with their love. Anyone looking for a light suspense book with some delicious coffee and looking for some sweetness and banter in their romance will enjoy this one!
