About this ebook

From #1 New York Times Bestseller Vi Keeland, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

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 saw 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.

GREAT book! This is my favorite of the books Vi has published lately, either by herself or as a collaboration. As usual, her characters are very realistic, and that's what I have always loved the most about her books. Anna was flawed, as we all are, and she certainly got herself into some embarrassing situations...in front of others...like we've all done :) Bennett had a bit of a martyr complex where he didn't feel he deserved happiness, but once Anna caught wind of that, the two of them worked hard to be together in spite of it all. But seriously, Bennett is hot. Lol! The ending had a bit of a "An Affair to Remember" vibe to it, and I LOVED it. While I was sort of turned off of Vi's books because of the various medical conditions she depressingly gave to different characters in her books, this scenario was really well done and I liked it very much. Bottom line: This book was fantastic, a true page-turner, and I'll ALWAYS be a big Vi fan!!! (I was given this book in consideration of my honest thoughts)

WE SHOULDN’T by Vi Keeland is a contemporary, adult, stand alone erotic, romance story line focusing on advertising account executives thirty-one year old, Bennett Fox and twenty-eight year old, Annalise O’Neil. Told from dual first person perspectives (Annalise and Bennett) WE SHOULDN’T follows the workplace relationship and romance between advertising account executives thirty-one year old, Bennett Fox and twenty-eight year old, Annalise O’Neil. A business merger between Wren Media and Foster Burnett meant Annalise O’Neil had to prepare to do battle for the position of Creative Director of West Coast Marketing, a position currently held by Bennett Fox. Bennett Fox was unprepared for his visceral reaction to Annalise O’Neil but when the head of operations proposes a three-deal competition all bets are off as Bennett battles between head and heart for his job and the woman with whom he is falling in love. What ensues is the building relationship between Annalise and Bennett, and the potential fall-out as miscommunication, misunderstanding and misspoken words push Annalise out of Bennett’s world. The relationship between Annalise and Bennett is one of mutual attraction but Annalise sees Bennett as nothing but a manwh*re and in direct competition for the position she once held so dear. Bennett’s slow seduction of our story line heroine is filled with snark and sass. The $ex scenes are intimate, passionate and seductive without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. The secondary and supporting characters are colorful and energetic including Annalise’s ex-boyfriend Andrew; her best friend and food critic Madison, Annalise’s parents Matteo and Margo Bianchi, and Bennett’s godson Lucas. WE SHOULDN’T is a story of family, friendship, regrets and love. The premise is spicy and spirited; the characters are animated, flirty, sassy and sexy; the romance is provocative and energetic.

We Shouldn't by Vi Keeland is a fantastic read from the very first page to the last. It is told in dual POV's and gives enough backstory to keep the reader wondering. The characters in this book are absolutely wonderful, Bennett is handsome, sexy, and arrogant while Annalise is a beautiful woman who is not afraid to speak her mind. The ad companies that they work for have merged and this is how the two meet, well there is a little bit more to their first meeting than that. Anyway sparks fly, tempers flare and the two dislike each other immediately and both vow to be the winner of the job. This book had me laughing out loud, crying, and fanning myself at times, the chemistry between the two is off the charts. It doesn't take the reader long to realize that there is a lot of layers to Bennett that has to be peeled off to find the true man beneath. Five "Texas sized " stars for this one. Definitely a must read!!
