The list of things I hate is short. Not even my soon-to-be ex-husband is on that list. Nope. I save only the worst of the worst, the crème de la crème, the absolute I cannot even for this list . . .<br /><br />1. Black coffee<br />2. Rude people<br />3. Nathaniel Bradley<br /><br />Which is why when my father informs me that he’s making Nathaniel Bradley his new business partner, and in turn, my boss, I flip out. <br /><br />1. He’s an annoying know-it-all. <br />2. He calls me a spoiled princess every chance he gets. <br />3. He disapproves of everything I do.<br /><br />I go into this knowing I’ll hate every second in his presence. Except the longer he’s around, the more I find myself staring at his lips and remembering the one time they were on mine. I randomly find myself looking at his hands and wondering how they’d feel on my skin. <br /><br />I try to snap out of it, but I guess I’m not as smart as I thought I was. No matter how many times I remind myself of the times I’ve practically thrown myself at him and he’s pushed me away, I keep falling little by little.<br /><br />I’d always heard that it was a bad idea to mix business with pleasure and if that’s the case, this thing with Nathaniel has demise written all over it. <br /><br />

<b>From <i>USA Today</i> bestselling author Jessica Hawkins comes a witty workplace romance standalone filled with smart enemies-to-lovers banter and loads of inconvenient attraction...</b><br /><br /><b><i>There’s a thin line between love and hate . . . and it cuts right through the middle of their office.</i></b><br /><br />Bad boys run right over good girls like Georgina Keller, but after a confidence-shattering breakup, she’s determined not to let anyone at her new workplace push her around. Especially not the brooding creative director, a “bad boy of publishing” who’s made it clear she’s enemy #1. <br /><br />Sebastian Quinn's taste for fast cars, late nights, and beautiful women may have gotten him to the top of a leading New York magazine, but the reputation that made him is suddenly threatening to end his career. And even though everyone says pretty, pint-sized Georgina is there to help, he can’t help thinking she’s hoping to land the final blow—and maybe even his job.<br /><br />Georgina can help Modern Man shed its bad reputation, but in order to do that, she’ll have to start at the top—and no amount of rakish charm or inconvenient attraction will distract her.

<b>He’s bossy, moody, and overprotective.</b> <br /><br />He’s also a pro athlete who needs to focus on winning games and staying out of the headlines.<br /><br />I’m fiercely independent and need a man like I need a second period each month. <br /><br />So when our worlds collide, I never expected him to be the one to jump in and save me. Especially not when my roommate disappears, leaving me with her baby.<br /><br />I’m clueless about babies—and it shows. Good thing Alexei isn’t. With six nieces and nephews and an apparent hero complex, the dude is both sexy and more than capable. It’s a combination that makes it easy to forget we’re just playing house.

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • A witty and emotionally charged novel that delves into the heart of a marriage, and how those we love and think we know best can sometimes surprise us the most<br /></b><br /><b>“A delightful take on the mixed blessings of marital longevity.”—<i>People</i></b><br />  <br /> After ten years together, Sylvie and Dan have a comfortable home, fulfilling jobs, and beautiful twin girls, and they communicate so seamlessly they finish each other’s sentences. They have a happy marriage and believe they know everything there is to know about each other. Until it’s casually mentioned to them that they could be together for another sixty-eight years . . . and panic sets in. <br />             <br /> They decide to bring surprises into their marriage to keep it fresh and fun. But in their pursuit of Project Surprise Me—from unexpected gifts to restaurant dates to sexy photo shoots—mishaps arise, with disastrous and comical results. Gradually, surprises turn to shocking truths. And when a scandal from the past is uncovered, they begin to wonder if they ever really knew each other at all.<br />             <br /> With a colorful cast of eccentric characters, razor-sharp observations, and her signature wit and charm, Sophie Kinsella presents a humorous yet moving portrait of a marriage—its intricacies, comforts, and complications. <i>Surprise Me</i> reveals that hidden layers in a close relationship are often yet to be discovered.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Surprise Me</i></b><br /><br />“Genuinely funny.”<b><i>—The New York Times Book Review</i></b><br />  <br /> “Unexpected and wholly satisfying.”<b>—<i>USA Today<br /></i></b><br />“In her signature fashion, Sophie Kinsella brings a cast of quirky, funny characters to this new work.
