The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office.
I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills.
He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.
Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant.
Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.
Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated.
Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent.
I was swindled out of ten grand.
The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place.
I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind.
I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.
The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages.
The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing.
And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.

Just seeing the cover and reading the blurb were enough to make me want to pick up this book. Then I started reading it and before I knew it, I was done. I enjoyed every minute of read this little gem of a story about a divorce lawyer and a marriage counselor who are opposites in just about every way. Egomaniac has everything I love about Vi Keeland’s books—it’s funny, it’s heartfelt, and it’s pretty dang hot.
Drew Jagger is a divorce lawyer in New York City who returns from vacation to find a stranger taking up residence in his office. Emerie Rose is new to the city and found a sweet deal on office space. Turns out, the deal is too good to be true and now she’s lost her life savings and has nowhere to work. After a series of unfortunate events, Drew takes pity on Emerie and lets her stay for a couple of months. Of course, working so close together leads to conversation, which leads to, well, you know.
From the bubbly banter to the sizzling and sexy shenanigans, Vi knocks it out of the park! I loved Drew and Emerie from the very first page and couldn’t wait to see how she was going to crack his cynical shell. Once she does, everything between them gave me big, squishy feelings. Everything works so well together from the storyline to the characters themselves. It feels authentic and genuine, but also polished and purposeful. Egomaniac is easily my favorite of Vi’s solo books and I can’t wait for the next one!
