It's just business, nothing personal.
 Until you have to work with your ex.

Nothing Personal, an all-new standalone romantic comedy by New York Times Bestselling author Karina Halle is live!

Nothing Personal AMAZON.jpg

Nova Lane is having the worst week possible. Her latest relationship ended while on her much-needed vacation, then upon her first day back at work, she learns that her beloved boss has quit – and despite having worked so hard for it, she's not being considered for his position.

Who is being considered for the position is none other than Kessler Rocha. Her ex-coworker and ex-lover, Kessler’s the man who broke her heart five years earlier and the reason she moved thousands of miles away, switched jobs, and created numerous voodoo dolls in Kessler’s (very burly, very handsome) liking.
Yup. Worst week ever.

New in town and on her turf, Kessler promises he’s not the same man he was – and considering he’s now a single father to a precocious toddler, he’s telling the truth.
But he’s still an arrogant, devilish and dangerously intelligent man who’s taking over the position Nova feels she deserves. The fact that he’s gotten even more sexy over the years doesn’t help either.
Now Nova and Kessler have the choice to let bygones be bygones, or fight with each other every chance they get, with unresolved sexual tension only adding fuel to the flames, creating a fire that might just burn down the whole office.
In the corporate world they say it’s just business, nothing personal.
Nova and Kessler are about to show just how personal things can get.

My Review:
Source:  E-galley from Social Butterfly PR which did not influence my opinion
My rating:  5 stars

The first book I read by this author was Smut, and I loved it.  But I also enjoyed The Artists trilogy, even though it was much darker.  This book is back along the lines of Smut, light, funny, and just plain fun.  And once again, I loved it!   I love how realistic the reactions were of the characters to set-backs and problems with each other.  But then there was the ridiculousness of some things that just cracked me up so much.  Like the chicken, and Kessler's fear of them, not to mention how he thought he kept running into the same chicken all the way through.  Then the craziness of how Nova dealt with having the guy who broke her heart back was funny too.  Although I totally went "eww" at her bit about finding Jeff Goldblum sexy, because no thank you, personally anyway.  Kessler's son Hunter was adorable, of course, and he added so much to the story without being the biggest part of the story like kids often are.  Towards the end, something happened to come between them, something I saw coming since the first mention of swimming lessons.  And the way it caused a rift between Nova and Kessler definitely brought tears to my eyes.  But I like the way the author handled the overall situation, and how it helped Nova and Kessler finally be able to admit their feelings freely.  Although that even led to a hilarious use of the word "aloha", with lots of uniquely adjusted quotes from movies to use that word.  One of the final issues of the story was a bit of a surprise, and I love when an author can do that.  I guess I should have seen it coming with the way Kessler just happened to have a house to live in.  

A wonderfully sweet, very sexy, hilarious story from Karina Halle.  I could barely put the book down to do anything else, and that is what I love in a rom-com!
