Arrogant Fiancé is a very sexy collaboration by T.L Smith and Melissa Jane. I am very familiar with both authors, having read Ms. Smith’s ‘Dark Intentions’ series, and Ms. Jane’s ‘Monsters’ and the ‘Bittersweet’ series. I have loved their individual worked, so I was excited by what their writing partnership would produce. To say they got their recipe right is an understatement. What they have delivered is a wonderful, seamless, cohesive and polished piece of work- a real credit to them both! All the controversy that brought about the change from the original title, and the not to be mentioned “C” word, aside, this book is really fantastic and deserves to be read.
It has got some angst and drama, but the story never gets too heavy or bogged down by any unwarranted drama. This is a fun and very entertaining read. There is humour, emotion, twists/surprises and some suspense- as well as quite a lot of steam to this tale. The chemistry and tension between the two leading characters was really well portrayed. I was intrigued by their situation, then captivated by them, and quickly became invested in them and their story.
This is a forbidden/office romance that kept me hooked right till the very last word! I really recommend this book to anyone looking for a sexy, spicy read that delivers everything the blurb promises, and more!
I look forward to reading more collaborations from these two talented authors in the future- after all there were several single, HOT hunks/secondary characters that I would love to see get their own story. Especially Slate…. hint, hint, hint.
Thank you, Ms. Smith and Ms. Jane!
