Emmie Echavarre is a professional faker. She has to be to survive as one of the few female employees at Nuts & Bolts, a power tool company staffed predominantly by gruff, burly men. From nine to five, Monday through Friday, she's tough as nails--the complete opposite of her easy-going real self. One thing she doesn't have to fake? Her disdain for coworker Tate Rasmussen. Tate has been hostile to her since the day they met. Emmie's friendly greetings and repeated attempts to get to know him failed to garner anything more than scowls and terse one-word answers. Too bad she can't stop staring at his Thor-like biceps... When Emmie and Tate are forced to work together on a charity construction project, things get...heated. Emmie's beginning to see that beneath Tate's chiseled exterior lies a soft heart, but it will take more than a few kind words to erase the past and convince her that what they have is real.… (mais)

I really liked it, but I didn't love it.

To start out, this book could have been a lot shorter, and with a lot less drama(especially in the end). Also, I was expecting a book that explored the construction thing, because of the helmet in the cover, but I was kinda disappointed.

Other than that, this book was exactly what I wanted, a rom-com with lots of hurt-comfort. The book was incredibly cliche, but that was what I wanted, so no comment on that. The characters were really likable, but Tate (why are you named Tate, I find Tate to be such a weird name) could have been a lot better at expressing himself, and Emmie could have been a bit more open in the beginning, though without her close-mindedness, we wouldn't have had as much drama, and I wouldn't have enjoyed the book as much as I did.

I've been wanting to read this one for a while, and I had had pretty high expectations, which was not a good thing. I also found that it felt a bit incomplete to me? What happened to Jamie in the end? What happens when she finally meets the parents? Do they actually go on that vacation, and iif they do, could we not have had a sneakpeek in the epilogue??? I wanted the happy ending to be complete!??!?!?

Also, that drama with ....(what was the ex-girlfriend's name???).....her could have been done better. In my opinion, we needed that insight into the ex well before the character was introduced, and the twinness could have been a surprise. I would have liked to know more about Tate, and have met some of Emmie's family members.


All in all, a good read. I recommend it to anyone who likes romance, the haters-to-lovers trope, the hurt/comfort, and, in general, a rom-com. ( )

Cute story of enemies to friends to lovers. Emmie and Tate work together at a tool company with their offices across from one another. Overhearing things and misinterpreting the meanings leads to lots of fighting. Eventually they realize their mistakes and finally listen to each other.

I liked Emmie and Tate. They are both strong characters with strong personalities. I felt like I really got to know them well. Of course, I knew what was happening with them being a long-time romance reader but I still delighted in their path of discovery. I liked the build-up of sexual tension between them. I just adored this couple and their story.

I won this book in a Goodreads contest and am giving a fair and unbiased review. ( )

This book has a lot going for it, you’ve got multicultural representation, bickering, steamy romance, and business. Definitely a must read if you like your romances more descriptive.

Free review copy. ( )

I received this book for free from the publisher (Berkley Publishing) in exchange for an honest review.

I was so excited to read this book because it is an own voices book written by a biracial Filipino American woman. As some of you may know, I too am a biracial Filipino American woman. I knew I had to read this book because representation matters!

All in all, I found this to be a cute romance.

I loved Tate. Despite his tough exterior, he was such a softie and a generous lover. I loved that he put female pleasure first. Speaking of pleasure, I really liked the sex scenes.

One of things I really liked was the communication between Emmie and Tate. Many times in contemporary romances there will be miscommunications and misunderstandings between the main characters and they will go their separate ways and sulk for a week instead of talking through it. In this book, the characters will almost immediately talk about the situation, which I find more realistic.

This book does get comparisons to The Hating Game by Sally Thorne because of the workplace enemies-to-lovers trope. I have read that book, but it was a while ago so I don’t remember much. Because of that, I can’t speak to their similarities.

As for the Filipino representation, I enjoyed seeing lit bits of Filipino culture like Illocano words and Filipino food. I was also happy to see Emmie talk about being darker skinned and how that has impacted her. There is also a lot of talk about Hawaii, since Emmie grew up on the Big Island.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and am so happy to finally see some Filipino rep in romance! ( )
