Book: Company Ink
Author: Kat Colburn
Release date: 13 January 2018
Main characters: Dani Wallace, talented, if a little jaded coder/saleswoman. Dan Kelly, enigmatic new VP of The beleaguered company Dani works for.
Office intrigue takes on a whole new meaning in this story of love, friendship, and the secrets hiding behind boardroom doors…
The Company has a rule about falling in love on the job.
I’ve never been one for rules. But I need this one. I need this rule to remind me why I can’t be with Dani Wallace.
I need this smart little foul-mouthed fighter by my side more than I need her in my bed. I need her to close this massive deal. She thinks it holds the key to her escape from cubicle hell and another shot at the life she always wanted.
But there is more riding on our success than she can possibly ever know.
So I’ll keep my hands to myself and my secrets safe for one more day.
But now I can’t stop wondering what my best friend has on beneath her conservative suit. I can’t stop imagining the things that sharp mouth of hers could do to me if I leaned back in my chair and unzipped my pants. And I can’t stop pushing our flirting too far.
I’m trying to remember the rule. But some rules are made to be broken.
Why you should read it: This was an absorbing and very intriguing story. I was asked to review this book and went in with no expectations or preconceptions. What I got was an exciting, slow burn of a story which kept my interest and entertained me. The dialogue between Dan and Dani was sparky and funny and I loved their dynamic. Both characters had a lot to give but circumstances and past experiences made them hesitate. There are a lot of secrets so be patient as the story unfolds at a steady pace. It was a very impressive book considering it’s a debut novel!
What you might not like: I loved it so can’t really criticise it at all. It was well edited and I loved the characters, the suspense, the premise of the story and the romance.
Rating: 4/5 for a very funny, very impressive debut. I look forward to reading much more from Kat Colburn.
