RRR presents... THE NEW GUY by Kathryn Freeman - REVIEW!

HI there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we're joining Rachel's Random Resources to shine a light on a Contemporary Romance title by author Kathryn Freeman.  It falls in the office romance trope, and this time, SHE'S the boss... *giggle*...okay, so it's not exactly like THAT, but she is in fact the boss.  Anyway, let's get this romance party started as we introduce today's ebook of choice...

The New Guy
Kathryn Freeman

About the book...
Sam Huxton doesn’t do one-night stands, especially not with men she’s just met! But the hot guy at the bar was hard to resist and their one night together is one she’ll never forget.

But one night is all they share – no names, no numbers, just some much needed fun…

Until the same guy walks into Sam’s life the next day as her new employee.  Sam never mixes business with pleasure and makes it clear an office fling with Ryan is off-limits.  But after-hours…one thing can lead to another. Can Sam trust her heart and her business with the new guy?



People talk about favorite romance tropes all the time...okay, well, scratch that...READERS talk about favorite romance tropes all the time, and while friends to lovers, second chance love, and small town romances are high rating on my list, an office romance can be pretty darn read worthy too!  Take this one...

Two strangers meet, reluctantly on at least one of their parts, and have a one night stand that is a first for both of them.  A night of passion later and boom...real world strikes again because wouldn't you know it?  He's the new employee, and she's his boss.  Oops.  Well, they're adults...they can handle this...or they can handle each other, stumble along the way, and maybe come out better on the other side.  You know, it could really go either way and with her unexpectedly posse of friends supporting her, Sam would probably come out the better or the two if it went sideways...though I'm not saying it does actually go sideways.  That's for me to know and you to find out by taking a spin through the epages, but as much as I loved Sam (and friends), and absolutely LOATHED Lynch (total a**hat with a side of chips!), I couldn't quite bring myself to love our leading man, Ryan, either.  For me, he was too surly...I just never felt that wall completely break down.  I get it, it was a part of him, and it worked well enough for those in his life, but it proved to be a tangible barrier for me truly getting completely lost in the story like I wanted to.  

So, all in all, still a rousing tale of broken hearts, techie subterfuge, and potential HEAs, but it was carried more so for me by our leading lady.  She had her heart in the right place, and though guarded (with reason!), she wasn't afraid of letting it show.  Word to the wise...there are a few scenes that are blush worthy, so adult readers is probably a good suggestion.  


About author Kathryn Freeman...

A former pharmacist, I’m now a medical writer who also writes romance. Some days a racing heart is a medical condition, others it’s the reaction to a hunky hero. 

With a husband who asks every Valentine’s Day whether he has to buy a card (yes, he does), any romance is all in my head. Then again, his unstinting support of my career change proves love isn't always about hearts and flowers - and heroes come in many disguises.
