TITLE - The Run In
AUTHOR - Kelly Elliott
Releases June 6th
Becoming the new Marketing Manager at Tate and Cane was a game changer. I was hell bent on proving I deserved this job, and that it wasn’t my cousin Sterling Quinn who had helped me score the new job title. Him being one of the CEO’s best friend—didn’t help the rumors.
Well screw that.
Ten years of sweat and hard work was the reason I was sitting in a large corner office with a killer Manhattan view. More focused than I’d ever been, it was time to take the bull by the horns.
And God help the person who stood in in my way.
Things I left behind in Seattle, Washington: A promising career at a top marking firm, the past I was desperate to escape, and obviously my sense of direction. It was because of all of those reasons I was standing in the middle of New York City lost and cursing at my phone.
If I didn’t get to Tate and Cane soon, I wouldn’t only be late, but also blow the chance to make the good impression on my new boss, Mason Quinn. And I needed that more than anything.
One wrong turn, an unfortunate collision, and an expensive suit drenched in my soy chia tea latte was not how I wanted to start my first day.
Then there was the other little problem I had. The drop dead gorgeous man whose suit I’d ruined was my new boss.
And boy did he look pissed.
“Office Romance, 3 stars”
Mason and Saylor are the couple in this fast paced novella. The story starts with Saylor running into Mason and spilling her hot tea all over him. Only to discover he’s her new boss.
They have the kind of chemistry that you can’t tell if they hate or love each other and its easy to get sucked in. Mason and Saylor feed off of each other in the workplace and really are better at their jobs when they work together.
Both fight the attraction, but you and I both know how well that works out. But what happens when they cave? Will they come out on the other side happy or will it all fall apart?
First off, I love Kelly Elliott, but I’m not a fan of novellas. The Run In is the perfect example as to why I don’t care for them. It’s not that it’s a bad story, I rather enjoyed it. But I wasn’t satisfied at the end of the book, I wanted more. Yes, I got what I wanted in the end but it felt so rushed that I didn’t get to enjoy it. If this was a full-length story I would probably rate it a 5 star instead of a 3 star.
Writing style- 3/5
