Nothing Personal by Karina Halle ~ Review (@MetalBlonde)

I've been enjoying Karina Halle's books lately, so when this beauty was published I snapped it up. This wasn't as good as some of her latest work, but I did enjoy reading it.

Nova Lane is having the worst week possible. Her latest relationship ended while on her much-needed vacation, then upon her first day back at work, she learns that her beloved boss has quit – and despite having worked so hard for it, she’s not being considered for his position.

Who is being considered for the position is none other than Kessler Rocha. Her ex-coworker and ex-lover, Kessler’s the man who broke her heart five years earlier and the reason she moved thousands of miles away, switched jobs, and created numerous voodoo dolls in Kessler’s (very burly, very handsome) liking.

Yup. Worst week ever.

New in town and on her turf, Kessler promises he’s not the same man he was – and considering he’s now a single father to a precocious toddler, he’s telling the truth.

But he’s still an arrogant and devilishly charming man who’s taking over the position Nova feels she deserves. The fact that he’s gotten even more sexy over the years doesn’t help either.

Now Nova and Kessler have the choice to let bygones be bygones, or fight with each other every chance they get, with unresolved sexual tension only adding fuel to the flames, creating a fire that might just burn down the whole office.

In the corporate world they say it’s just business, nothing personal.

Nova and Kessler are about to show just how personal things can get.

It's been a little while since I've read anything by Karina Halle, and I was browsing Kindle Unlimited, yet again, and came across Nothing Personal and was excited to dive into this world!

I actually felt sorry for Nova as she was passed over for a job she deserved. She was a hard worker and was well respected. However, I really loved Kessler, and seeing the kind and gentle man he was, especially with his son. He melted my heart on numerous occasions, and he worked hard to win Nova over.

Nova and Kessler's relationship was strained in the beginning; she had been hurt by him before so she was hesitant to let Kessler in. I liked how Nova gelled with Hunter, which helped with her relationship with Kessler. The more time they spent together, I could see that they had insane chemistry and couldn't wait for them to take the next step.

Nothing Personal was a really good read and I liked watching all the ups and downs unfold between Nova and Kessler. They both deserved this second chance and I could see that they had both grown since their first time together. A couple of aspects annoyed me, but I liked how Nova and Kessler worked thorough some of those issues together. Karina Halle's books are reads that I'm going to pick up again and again. She has a beautiful way of creating characters and worlds that I want to be swept away in. 

This was a sweet moment between Kessler and Nova...

“I’ll see you in the morning. Don’t forget me this time.”
I nod and hope my smile looks more carefree than it feels. “I won’t. Good night Nova.”
“Good night Kess.”
And to think I could ever forget about her.
Not when she’s across the hall.
Not when she’s across the office.
Not even if she’s across an ocean.
