Book Review | OfficeMate by Katie Ashley (@katieashleyluv)

OFFICE MATE by Katie Ashley just went live and it's on sale for just .99 cents!



From the first time I played army as a kid, the military has been my life. As an Airborne Major, I’d led my men through two tours in Afghanistan. But when my father was elected president, I became an even greater target for the enemy—a prize for someone to take out. To ensure not only the safety of myself, but of my men, I got stripped of my cammies, shoved into an Armani suit, and placed into a management position at my father’s company. After years of trekking through the desert with an assault rifle, I was way out of my area of expertise, which my transition coordinator was more than happy to let me know on a daily, if not hourly basis. The brunette bombshell would be the death of me in more ways than one, especially since I hadn’t been with a woman since my last deployment. She’s turning out to be one of the greatest foes I’ve ever done battle with.


In the backwoods Georgia town I was born in, you either married right out of high school or got the hell out of town. I chose the second and never looked back. After graduating top in my class, I started working for The Callahan Corporation. Fast forward five years and I was about to become the youngest female manager in the history of my department. And then all the blood, sweat, and tears I’d put into my career were for nothing when the boss’s billionaire son was handed my position on a silver platter. Not only that, I was expected to help transition him into the job that was supposed to be mine. Sure, he’s easy on the eyes with his chiseled good-looks and impossibly built physique, but I’m not going to let that distract me. I hope soldier boy is good at military strategy because sabotage is the name of the game I’ll be playing.

Add OFFICE MATE to Goodreads:



Thorn was forced to give up his military uniform and his regimen to suit up in expensive clothes, and have his place inside the office of his family's business. Because of the imminent danger since his father's election - he had no choice but to grudgingly follow what his family wants for him. He expected to be bored and out of his wits - but then there was Isabel. The gorgeous brunette who likes to keep him in his place and reminds him constantly that he wasn't right for the job, not that he needs constant reminding. 

Isabel worked her way to the top - but when her supposedly promotion was lost over nepotism, it devastated her. It didn't help that the one who stole her promotion is just jaw-dropping handsome, and the son of the president of the country. She also has to help the transition! But she has different ideas though...

Officemate is a enemy-to-lovers romance. But you can already feel the chemistry between the two, since their interesting first meeting down to the very page where they finally made THAT move, and I think it was past 50% (trust me though, it was so worth it!). I love Isabel, she was easy to love. Generous heart, beautiful, sexy and intelligent. The whole package. She might have done something, but she owned up to her mistakes, and tries to make up for it. Her gesture was just pure love.

I love Thorn's friendship with Ty, and his relationship with Barrett - these three gave me all the laugh this weekend. Ty and Barrett teaming up with him was just LOL. They were very supportive of him - but of course, they just love to tease him with just about anything! 

Officemate by Katie Ashley is the perfect read! OfficeMate will make you swoon, laugh, and fall in love. It was just a slow-burn romance (as Thorn would have put it) - the anticipation was so worth the wait! I finished this in one sitting, unable to put down the book. I have everything coming by the end of it.
