Race You by Jolie Vines
Emma is fighting for her dream job … she has no idea she could win her dream man.
In a competition for the position of a lifetime, Emma knows she can’t beat her office enemy on skill alone. After Arnie sabotaged her first day, the boss has avoided her like the plague. Everyone loves Arnie, even though he’s the most annoying, lazy, hot, jerk she’s ever had the misfortune to work with. And dream about.
Arnie thinks only one thing when he looks at Emma–more. But with his self-imposed exile in London almost complete, he should be packing to return to the family business in Italy. His days working alongside his secret crush are numbered.
Forced to collaborate, Emma resists the chemistry between her and Arnie. If she gets too close, she may as well hand him the promotion, yet turning her back on the boss’s favourite will destroy her chances. And leave her unemployed.
Only one of them wants to win. Both are risking more than their careers.
This standalone contemporary romance takes in the sights of London and the stunning Italian countryside. If you like Christina Lauren, RS Grey, and Sally Thorne, you’ll adore this humorous, chemistry-loaded novel.

Whenever I see Office Romances, I grab them quick! I just love a book that gives me good vibes, especially after a hard day at work, in an office! He, he…
Emma is an overqualified woman working for a job that her jerk of an ex fiancé managed to screw her over. This is where she meets Arnie, and they get off on the wrong foot. They have an unspoken race they like to play, a game where Arnie starts to like her even more.
The chemistry between them is off the charts and I like how he is some sort of important guy in his Italian heritage.
What felt off for me, honestly, is that I have been reading a lot of English based romances along the years, and some of the language was not here. It felt very American to me. I know the author lives in England, and I would have loved more of their colloquial words in.
All in all, I have read this in one sitting, and I am sure I’m going to be checking Jolie Vines soon and see what else she has out there.
