Hello, readers and writers!
This review has been a couple of weeks coming because of the insanity involving midterms at school. Nobody ever warns you about your last semester of your undergrad, but it’s incredibly stressful. I’m making it through though, and Strictly Professional has helped me through it as I thoroughly enjoyed this story!
Roxy Quinn is a badass punk queen trying to make it as a businesswoman in today’s world. She’s invested money and time into a career she’s hoping will work out. To reach her goal, she has to be mentored by one of the top business professionals in her field, and she’s excited to dedicate and take the program seriously, even after she discovers her mentor is a man she shared a very sexy, passionate night with a few months ago. She thought she’d never see Edward Cavendish III again, but now here he is, in the flesh, looking more beautiful than she remembered.
What I Didn’t Like:
- Edward’s parents!! His father creates so much conflict and is an absolute jerk throughout the novel. I want to punch him in his freaking face!!
- Sometimes it felt as if things were going too perfectly for Edward and Roxy. They seemed to not have any conflicts at all, and that’s not exactly realistic, but I will allow it to pass since it makes the story sweet.
What I Liked:
- So many of the characters popped out to me, especially many of the background characters. Roxy’s parents, coworkers, sister, and more had me smiling and laughing throughout the story. I loved the idea of people living their lives that way.
- The sex scenes were insane!! At the very beginning, there’s some hot stuff that goes on for a few chapters, and it was hard to put the novel down. I ended up staying awake way too late to finish the scene!!
I found the novel very enjoyable, and the story was super cute. The imagery took me away, and I felt I was falling in love with Roxy and Edward. I honestly didn’t want it to end. It’ll probably go on my list of novels I’m down to reread again for future indie book clubs!
