I'll start with the hero, Drew Jagger. His one liners had me laughing so hard at times that I was crying and I've read many funny books (Kylie Scott's and Max Monroe's to name two) but this absolutely, without a doubt for me takes the grand prize. Jagger, is a sexy, hot, rich, brilliant matrimonial attorney residing in New York. His background I refuse to give, I will not give this review any spoilers, trust me please, just read the book. He was funny, adorable, emotional with a heart of gold. His vulnerability was a bonus, really just a great human being.
Emerie Rose, our heroine, is beautiful, a bright psychologist from Oklahoma now residing in New York, naïve at times but definitely in a good way and funny way but most importantly had a lot of spunk and did not take any nonsense from Drew. She was far from a weak doormat. She had some good one liners herself at times. She was beyond adorable, emotional with an unbelievable heart of gold. She was very loyal and patient. She too, was just a great human being, very real.
Secondary characters, Roman, (Drew) Jagger's best friend, private investigator, funny and loyal. Alexa, don't get me started on that one, there are plenty of choice words I would have for her, but this a respectful review, use your own judgment, I'm sure you'll feel the same. Baldwin, a putz among many of the other names Drew had for him which were spot on and funny. Beck's, is so cute, adorable and sweet.
Sex, yes but not until around 50% but it's not needed, trust me. You don't even realize it hasn't happened yet because that's how good and clever this book/story is. I can't say enough about Vi Keeland and she is not my go to author, I'm not sure if I've ever read anything by this author but I promise you I will be now if this is how she writes. This book was pure talented brilliance and fun with many, many laugh out loud moments, after reading it I would have paid much more for it, that's how much I enjoyed and truly loved it! Honestly, I can't give it enough praise. The going back and forth in his past just flowed naturally and was very little, most takes place in the present but those little snippets of his past were completely 100% necessary.
Cliffhanger, no. Cheating by hero or heroine, no. Sexy, oh yes, not in the BDSM kind of way if that's what you're looking for but it's good, steamy even. This book just works on so many levels. The story, wow, as others say "it has all the feels", it's a really good, heartfelt story and how the hero and heroine compliment each other is just beautiful, warming, genuine, sincere well I could go on and on because this was just that good. Cursing, oh yes and funny with it, if that's not you're thing then move on, it's definitely not the book for you but you're missing out. Typos, few and disregard them because this is worth it, no need for grammar police here. Please don't do that to this author's book because negatives don't belong here. Talent is talent and that's exactly what this is.
Most importantly there's a HEA! Please download this now if my review moves you. The Amazon reviews did not give this book enough justice and they're all good but it was better than the 5 stars given/allowed. I am not a friend of this author and was not asked to give my review, this is my honest opinion.
Okay! Okay!!! Okayyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!! Consider me smitten, charmed, seduced, and utterly romanced by this story, by these characters. Hands down one of the sweetest, most enjoyable, most heartfelt and well crafted reads I've read. The novel is laid out in such a way that you are drawn in from the first chapter to the last. I swear, there's no way that you won't like this book.
I'M. DEAD. SERIOUS.
I CANNOT imagine a single person not falling head over heels in love with Emerie and Drew. They are down right lovable, so real and funny. And SO charming. SOOOOOO, SO, CHARMING. Really, Egomaniac hit my square in the gut with feels. And right now, I'm in that "head in the clouds, hearts in my eyes, honeymoon love" stage. I really think this novel has cemented my love of Vi Keeland as one of my FAVORITE authors. I mean.. I haven't read all of her books, but I definitely adored THE BALLER, almost had a mental meltdown over the perfection that was STUCK UP SUIT (she co-authors that with Penelope Ward) and really enjoyed BOSSMAN. And now there's this? ANOTHER WINNER. Another story that's not just sex, but actual story with pure heart and full bodied characters that are such a delight to read, they make you want to skip around in joy.
It's the freaking best.
ALSO, I need to say, I have a MAJOR freaking crush on Vi's writing. I'm so enamored with it. It's crisp and clean, not weighed down with a thousand BS details you don't give a fudge about. She doesn't over do it on character mannerisms. She lets the dialogue set the tone, and allows the reader to set the scene with their imagination. She's an author who conveys exactly what she needs to, at exactly the right time, to get the story right.
Man, I'm smitten. Smitten by all of it. The writing. The sweetness of Emerie. The Perfection of Drew. Separately these characters are fantastic. Heart stopping. But together, they're CATACLYSMIC. Their chemistry owns the pages, and their strangers, to friends, to lovers story takes your breath away. From their first meeting, you fall hard for Drew, and for Emerie. They have an instant rapport that sets you at ease, and the start of the first chapters are so captivating and wholly unique. In all the time I've been reading, I don't think I've ever read a book that starts as well as that.
I can't say enough good things. I just loved the dynamic between these characters, the way their attraction and friendship bloomed. From the moment Drew finds Emerie in his office, he as smitten with her as I am with them. It's sweet. There are so many unbelievably endearing moments, moments where I literally felt my heart staggering, where my cheeks hurt from smiling, and my chest filled with so much warmth and happiness.
Just so very good.
Egomaniac is lighter on the angst, heavy on the romance and absolutely loaded with a hardy dose of pure heart you will love. I certainly think that Vi Keeland has out done herself. And I know it's early, but I'm 99% sure that this book will be in my TOP 10 at the end of 2017. I'm so in love. And I plan to scream this to anyone who will listen.
A. MUST. READ.
10 BEST OF THE BEST stars.
Oh, and PS: I didn't go into the outline of the book in this review, because most of the first bit of this novel is in the blurb. You really DO NOT need to know more than what's in the blurb. Go into this book and enjoy it. It's fantastic. The characters are wonderful. Also, here are just a couple of my status updates while reading. LOL.
1. 5% and I HAVE TINGLESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! That was one of the best opening scenes! Gah! #swoons
2. Okay. I'm in motherfreaking love. Wow! Omg! I'm just loving this story! I feel freaking giddy right now! This ROCKS.
That's the sweetest thing I've ever read! I'm seriously melting all over my kindle. What the fk. This man just stole my soul and panties at the same time. Holy swoon.
4. My kids are finally in bed. Thank goodness. Back to reading.
Also, "I don’t share things that are mine." <<<----- YEAH! He's the ULTIMATE man! Mother of friggin book husband perfection!
**** Hahahahahahahaha**** It's just so good, guys. SO GOOD.
There is something about Vi's heroes. They totally give you an impression at the beginning and then Kaboom!!!!! you really get to know who they really are inside and out. There is just so much more to Drew's hotness, arrogance and dirty mouth. It is the beauty of finding out just how much that captivated me in this story. Nothing is given away easy, you have to read and get to know these characters that have such chemistry you remain glued to the pages just waiting for the moment it is all going to explode. Nothing seems like it is and Vi Keeland makes an outstanding job in her writing to make us think different things and surprise us in the most beautiful way.
I couldn't stop highlighting favorite phrases and imagining edits for the book in my head as I was reading.
Vi gives us heroine that is sweet but strong in her ways and knows exactly how to deal with Drew. I was fascinated seeing him fall, fall, fall for her until there was nothing else that mattered. I love how Vi gets you from the beginning. No boring chapters, from Chapter 1, you just want to keep turning those pages.
This book gave me all the feels, something that I must feel in order to give a book 5 stars.
