#ReleaseBlitz: Before I Ever Met You by Karina Halle

Before I Ever Met You

by Karina Halle

Released April 25, 2017

About The Book:

I first met William McAlister when I was just a teenager.

He was handsome, had a beautiful wife and was on the verge of success, having just joined my father as his business partner. Mr. McAlister was full of smooth charm, but back then he was barely a blip on my radar. Just a family friend.

Fast forward ten years: I’m 25 years old and a single mom trying to make things right for her seven-year old son. I’ve made some mistakes, grappled with my demons and now I’m back in the city of Vancouver, getting a second chance at a better life.

I’ve started by working for my father’s production company as an executive assistant. My first day on the job and I already know I could have a promising career there.
That is until I see Will McAlister for the first time in a decade.

Now recently divorced and as sophisticated as always, Will has gone from being my father’s friend and business partner to something so much more.

We’re both older, for one thing, and he just oozes this worldly confidence and stark sexuality. Combined with his tall, muscular build and sharp suits, strong jaw and bedroom eyes, Will has turned into one hell of a distraction.

A distraction I’m having a hard time staying away from, considering his office is right across from my desk and I work with him in such close proximity.

But it’s just a harmless crush, right?

It’s just an innocent fantasy of screwing him on his desk, right?

It can’t ever be more because he’s my father’s best friend, business partner, and my boss.

"I could hardly breathe as I read! I actually had PHYSICAL reactions to this book. The chemistry between Will and Jackie is down right orgasmic. They had me hooked, tethered to them. I found myself holding my breath, yearning and squirming and dying as their slow burn relationship took shape. It was the most addicting reading experience I've had in a long time. Absolutely heart pounding! I couldn't get enough!"

My Review:

Before I Ever Met YouBefore I Ever Met You by Karina Halle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Before I Ever Met You by Karina Halle is a beautiful stand alone romance. It is about William McAlister and Jackie Phillips. William is a divorced 41 year old VP of Mad Men Studios. His business partner and President of the company is none other than 25 year old Jackie's father. This story may sound slightly taboo or forbidden with the 16 year age gap (depending on your prude level) but it is so wonderfully handled throughout the entirety of the story. William is a book-boyfriend for the record books and Jackie is a strong and independent, although sometimes too stubborn female who is just as lucky to have him as he is to have her. The steam level is phenomenal but the story isn't about the sex (or love-making) it is most definitely about romance and the love story. The peripheral characters are wonderful too. I loved this and I hope you do too! Enjoy!
