Bennett Fox walked into my life on one hell of a crappy Monday morning.

I was late for the first day at my new job
a job I’d now have to compete for even though I’d already worked eight years to earn it, because of an unexpected merger. 

While I lugged my belongings up to my new office, a meter maid wrote me a parking summons.

She’d ticketed a long line of cars
except for the Audi parked in front of me, which happened to be the same make and model as mine.

Annoyed, I decided to
 regift my ticket to the car that had evaded a fine. Chances were, the owner would pay it and be none the wiser.

Except, I
 accidentally broke the windshield wiper while slipping the ticket onto the car’s window.

Seriously, my day couldn’t get any worse.

Things started to perk up when I ran into a gorgeous man in the elevator. We had one of those brief moments that only happened in movies.

You know the deal
your body lights up, fireworks go off, and the air around you crackles with electricity. 

His heated stare left me flush when I stepped off the elevator.

Maybe things here wouldn’t be so bad after all.

Or so I thought.

Until I walked into my new boss’s office and met my competition.

The gorgeous man from the elevator was now my nemesis. His heated stare wasn’t because of any mutual attraction. It was because he’d seen me vandalize his car. And now he couldn’t wait to annihilate his rival.

There’s a fine line between love and hate
and we shouldn’t cross it. 

We shouldn’t
but straddling that line could be so much fun.

Annalise's ad company has just merged with another ad company in San Francisco. Several problems with that. Now she has to drive into work, instead of walk. And she hates cars. And now she has to fight for her job. She has to be better than the new guy or she'll be sent to work in Texas.
Enter Bennett.

He's the new guy. Or rather, Annalise is the new girl in his company.
And if they weren't fighting for the same job - this whole fighting thing would be pretty fun. Well, it still is fun. But what happens when fun arguing turns into liking and then even more?
And then someone has to leave for Texas?



First of all... the COVER! Yum! What is it with Vi and Penelope and their covers?? Where do they find these guys?!?! Jeez! ☺

The story was cute and fun. An adorable office enemies to lovers thing.
BUT - we also have some very serious & sad parts surrounding our two darlings.

Bennett is worried about his godson. The eleven year old boy has to live with his idiot grandmother.
Bennett can't leave Lucas behind to go work in Texas.

And Annalise. She was just left by her boyfriend of eight years and she wants to concentrate on work!

This was such a cute story. I loved reading it.
Bennett is such a guy! A very sexy and sweet guy. But the way the argue and fight and flirt at work ... hilarious.
Funny moments and adorable moments plus a few heartbreaking moments = perfect romance!

WE SHOULDN'T was an adorable & funny & sexy & moving enemies-to-lovers-office romance! Run to your nearest amazon to get your own Bennett - this one is so MINE!

ARC received for an honest review

Woohoo another Vi Keeland novel has hit my kindle!  Happy dance!

Helloooooo sexy cover.  The book may be called We Shouldn't but those eyes are telling me "hell yeah, we should!"

I love an office story.  I love an enemies to lovers story.  Combine the two and I am all in.

I adore Bennett and Annalise's story.  Yes, it is a cute and sexy romance, but it is also more.  It delves in to some deeper issues as well, so it was quite emotional as well.

There was a character that I just couldn't with. I may have wanted to clip them around my ears with my kindle.  You will know them when you get to them.

There is just something about a Vi Keeland story that I love. Doesn't matter what the subject matter, I just can't put them down once I start.

Now I am impatiently waiting for what she brings us next.
