Publisher's Summary

A new standalone novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Vi Keeland.

The night I met Drew Jagger, he'd just broken into my new Park Avenue office. I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills. He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.

Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant. Only, turned out, he wasn't an intruder at all.

Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He'd been on vacation while his posh space was renovated. Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn't really available for rent. I was swindled out of ten grand.

The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn't refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he'd let me stay until I found a new place. I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn't help giving him a piece of my mind. I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.

The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages. The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing. And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.

Happy "Gotcha" Day!

I love coming across a "new to me" author who not only impresses me with a WONDERFUL, well written story, but can hook me with just one story and Vi Keeland did just that! WOW! This was a fun, feel good romance, with a solid plot, and ticked off everything I love in a good audio! I had a BLAST listening too this one! Kudos Vi!

Drew Jagger has become one of my favorite characters. He was complex with all the typical attributes sexy, hot, confident, and arrogant; however, he was also caring, vulnerable and has a teasing personality. All his one-liners were hilarious! I liked his actions were justified by his past and everything he sees and does on a daily basis. You really understood his motives.

Poor Emerie Rose had me cracking up with all her dumb luck! She was so sweet, had a heart of gold and only focused on bringing out the best of everyone; however, she could be a little naïve at times. These two were polar opposites but had a magnetic attraction that pulled them together. He's the divorce lawyer, and she's the marriage counselor. They were a hilarious match!

Their relationship evolved naturally; it wasn't forced, rushed or instant. Not only was their sexual relationship developed but also their friendship. These two went from being strangers to friends then lovers. Vi did an amazing job building their relationship, off the charts chemistry and sexual tension between the characters.The sex scenes were HOT & STEAMY!!!

The writing blew me away! The story had a great flow, the dialogue was clever, witty and had a realistic feel, and each scene had the right amount of description. The reader is not bogged down with too many details.

Andi Arndt and Joe Arden's performance was outstanding! They did an amazing job with all the dialogue between the characters.

Solid five star story and performance! Well worth a credit!

My first Vi Keeland book

Would you consider the audio edition of Egomaniac to be better than the print version?

The performance by Joe Arden and Andi Arndt was superb! They really brought the characters to life in realistic and convincing matter.

If you’ve listened to books by Vi Keeland before, how does this one compare?

This was my first Vi Keeland book. As a guy trying to expand my literary horizons, I was somewhat disappointed by the storyline of the book. I felt that the character development was extremely lopsided. The male character (Drew Jagger) is complex, multifaceted, and exhibits a wide emotional range. By contrast, the female character (Emerie Rose) is consistently portrayed as a damsel in distress (with a doctorate degree). A good 75 percent of the storyline focuses on Emerie Rose being rescued or protected in some way. By the first quarter of the book, I could predict her misfortunes and even her responses. The author seemed to give all the emotional depth to Drew Jagger, which would be fine if the book was solely about him and not a romance novel.

What about Joe Arden and Andi Arndt ’s performance did you like?

See above.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed a lot more than I expected. Some aspects of the book took a more serious tone. These moments were mostly related to Drew Jagger's past.

4.5 Egomaniac Stars


What a feel good book, it has the dirty mixed with a heavy dose of sweet. Oh and a bit of an arrogant as-mole.. ;) You know what I was trying to say

But it works and this book is all kinds of sweet and sexy just the kind of book you expect from this author.

Drew, Drew, Drew. I wasn't sure about him at first I thought boy this guy is a real…. ----
And well he is! But he isn't a mean ----. So I started to really like him.

Emery this poor girl had me laughing, she was funny and didn't even really have to do anything but be herself. I loved that. I also really liked that even though life was shoveling --- toward her she took it in stride. She didn't get all weepy.

Together these too have the right kind of sexual chemistry, the banter heck they have it all. I loved the back and forth it was witty and not overdone.

I also lovvvveeeed the narrations then again I love anything Andi narrates she has a ways of being each character to life in a way not all narrators can. And Joe well just listen to his voice…enough said. :D

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Sweet and funny

I really enjoyed the sweet humor I was giggling most of the night as I listened to the book before bed. That delayed my sleep by 4 hr! But it was worth it. Good narration too very present voices. Oh yes sexy as hell too.

A SWEET & HUMOROUS FEEL GOOD ROM COM

When small town Psychologist Emerie Rose got swindled into renting office space in Park Avenue for her Marriage Guidance Practice only to find out that it was already leased to a handsome egomaniac Divorce Attorney named Drew Jagger she thought she'd hit rock bottom. However more problems and shame was waiting for Emerie at the Police station but instead of leaving her to sort out her own mess (as his mind said he should've done) Drew took her under his wing and came up with a plan.

Drew's short-term plan was simple.. they could share his office space - but the more time they spend together helping one another, sharing late night takeaways, having flirty witty banter and heated arguments the more their sizzling sexual attraction built. And the closer they got the harder it became to keep their hands off each other.. until the day they both gave in to lust. It was just meant to be sex.. but somewhere along the way it became a whole lot more.. until the day it wasn't - the day Drew broke Emerie's heart.

Drew had a bitch of an ex and shared custody of a sweet 7 yr old son and Emerie had thought she was in love with Baldwin her male best friend (and fellow tenant) whom she'd crushed on since her College years and had come to New York to be with. But Baldwin never acknowledged Emerie's obvious interest, dated a host of women and if you snooze you lose which he quickly discovered and tried to fix. Meanwhile Emerie's heart had been given to Drew.. but he was about to make a heartbreaking decision and nothing would be the same again.. now would it eventually turn out to be the worst or best decision of his life??

A happy feel-good romance between a likeable strong-willed, naive, sassy and clever heroine who believes marriages can be saved and a dirty talking, sexy, sarcastic, charming, loyal hero who intimately knew the bitter taste of a bad marriage and earnt his living by legally destroying them. And yet, despite their obvious differences, they find the perfect partner for themselves in each other.. by moulding and bending for one another, for a little boy, for love.. and for a sweet HEA.

Worth a credit? Yes - Vi Keeland has done it again.. she's given us a 5* contemporary romance that'll make you smile, make you frown, make you sigh with frustration and make you giddy with happiness. Her words morph and her characters breathe as this very entertaining and enjoyable dual POV love story comes alive thanks to two awesome narrators.

Fun, Sexy, Easy Read

This light flirty read was just what I needed, it hit the spot beautifully. I completely fell in love with Drew Jagger (sexy attorney at law) as he assisted Beautiful, naive, small town girl Emerie Rose as she navigated her way around the New York hustle and bustle. After being scammed by a would be realtor, Drew well and truly comes to her rescue in an uncharacteristic move as her offers her some of his office space at no cost. Drew is a divorce attorney, Emerie is a marriage counsel. They are both at opposite enters of the spectrum. They argue non stop, as such, their passion and chemistry are off the charts. Both learning and living with each other's inner most thoughts and fears, and both learning to love and trust in each other. Told in dual POV with some amazing supporting characters along with some emotional and touching scenes this book was a full five star read that I completely got lost in. Fun, sexy, easy read.

Brilliant

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes definitely. It was great from the beginning and had substance and a good story line. It got your attention straight away and kept it. The narration was brilliant too.

What other book might you compare Egomaniac to, and why?

I can't think of one that it is similar too really as its a refreshingly different

Which character – as performed by Joe Arden and Andi Arndt – was your favourite?

Drew and Emery were both awesome but they did the other voices great too

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

definitely

Any additional comments?

This is the best book I have read in a while and look forward to more from this author. I have to say that i am always tempted by books read by Andi Arndt as she is my favorite female narrator,

OMG! I think this is the best yet.

I'm not sure if it is because it was an audio book because I pay closet attention to the story or if it is just THAT good. Either way I loved this story and everything about the relationships within the pages. H & h were fantastic together and the relationship between father and son just made me tear up. The performance of the narrators impeccable. All in all close to perfect for me.
