Release Blitz & Review: Right Where I Want You - Jessica Hawkins

Right Where I Want You
Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 28, 2018

There’s a thin line between love and hate . . . and it cuts right through the middle of their office.

Bad boys? They 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—least of all the brooding creative director, a “bad boy of publishing” who’s made it clear she’s enemy #1.

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.

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.

Because if Sebastian gets her right where he wants her, it means she’s going down.

4.5 Stars
Georgina Keller assumes the name George during her nine to five, determined not to let anyone take advantage of her good girl ways at work. There she wants to be seen as in control and in charge, especially in her new position at Modern Man. Sebastian Quinn lets the headlines speak for him; party guy, ladies man, and daredevil are just a few things they say about the handsome Creative Director at Modern Man. The magazines in a downward spiral though and Georgina is brought in to repair the reputation that Sebastian has created for it. The two clash from the very first moment and while attraction simmers between them neither wants to let the other win.

"I'd come to Newton that weekend certain Georgina hated me. Now I'd gone and missed my shot with her. Did I even want a shot?"

It is probably no surprise to anyone that I loved Right Where I Want You. I am a self-proclaimed super fan of Jessica Hawkins and I buy anything she releases, so of course I was stoked for this book. Plus, it offered us a contemporary romance, one not driven by angst, but more so by chemistry. While the fan-girl in me loved this book automatically, I made sure to leave her behind for this review. 

Right Where I Want You thrusts readers immediately into the fast-paced, business-driven New York City streets. There's snippy business women, handsome men in suits, and there's Georgina acting like a bit of a pushover, at least until we see her take charge in the conference room. Sebastian too gives off different vibes, showing a sweeter side to himself until we see him saunter down the office halls. While I didn't quite connect with Georgina's alternate personalities, I loved Sebastian, and I extra loved their insane chemistry. Talk about office romance done right! And if you love enemies-to-lovers tropes, we get that too. Sebastian knows his job is on the line and he certainly doesn't want to give it up to a girl who goes by George, but some of the things Georgina wants to see done make sense and the rest he's forgotten due to staring at her. As they put the bad behind them to give love a chance they discover that sometimes there is some truth to first impressions.

"Finally, I had exactly what I needed to take her out. Now I just had to ignore the disturbing thought that I might rather ask her out."

Jessica Hawkins takes us on a journey of self discovery with hilarious and heartwarming moments that find the characters unable to deny their attraction to one another. Right Where I Want You was the perfect book for me to end 2018 with and if you haven't read it yet, definitely put it on your January 2019 lineup. It's a must read, full of sweet, funny, and sexy moments that'll have you entertained until the very last page.
