Book Tour and Review for Unprofessional by J.D. Hawkins

 

Unprofessional by JD Hawkins

Release Date: March 22nd

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Designer: Letitia Hasser from RBA Designs

Blurb

What happens when the internet's favorite playboy falls in love?
I have the best job in the world. Date beautiful women and write about it.
But I want to take it to the next level: instead of writing about my experiences make it into an online reality show.
But here is the catch. My boss wants me to share the show with a woman co-host. And he wants that woman to be my best friend and co-worker, Margo.
I’ll date beautiful women and she’ll date hot men. Sounds fair enough.
So now I have to watch her fake date hot men. I used to love going home with a different woman every night, but suddenly this isn’t as fun. Seeing Margo with anyone else is driving me crazy.
And the more time I spend with her working on the show, the less I want to keep our relationship in the friends’ zone. And the harder it is to stop myself from imagining her bent over the copier.
Things are about to get unprofessional.

                                             Review:

     There are those one-click authors who I know will not disappoint and J.D. Hawkins to me, is one of those authors. I am a fan and I have to admit that I do get all giddy when I find out he has a new release coming out soon and I have a early copy in my hands. In Unprofessional we have a friends to lovers story that is funny, sexy, and very hard to put down. This might just be my favorite so far. 

     Owen works side by side with his best friend Margo, they have been best friends since college so starting a relationship with her would be a very bad idea. Especially because he doesn't sleep around with co-workers. Don't get me wrong, Owen is a player and his sexual dominate side took me by surprise, let's just say he has a way of weakening any women's knees. I feel in love with his carefree attitude and his feelings for Margo are so well written that the emotions taking place in this slow tease of falling in love was felt in every word. 

     Margo is a beautiful, smart and ambitious woman who is going through a recent slump when it comes to men. Her dreams of having a long-term relationship and a job that will have her writing more than just reviews seems impossible, unless she puts herself out there. Maybe co-hosting with her best friend on his online dating reality show may be just what she needs. 

     It takes a few rounds of drinks on St. Patrick's Day to ignite the sexual chemistry that is between Owen and Margo. This may have been one of the hottest release of sexual tension between friends that I have read, but will it be worth losing their relationship? It sure doesn't make watching each other on the online dates easier. 

     Unprofessional is everything I expected from Hawkins, the witty sexy banter, humor, strong characters and the heartfelt moments of realizing what's important in life. It's all perfectly put together in this 5 Star must read!

“Thank god you live on the ground floor,” I say, as I rummage for her keys in her bag with one hand while keeping her from falling with the other. It’s not that I haven’t been to Margo’s place before, but when we hang out it’s usually at work functions or the occasional bar, and at the moment I can’t shake the feeling that I’m intruding a little.
“You know, you’re really fucking hot,” she slurs, giggling. My cock stirs at the brush of her lips so close to my neck, her warm breath against my skin. I have to shake it off.
“And you’re really fucking drunk,” I reply with a forced laugh, as the key finally catches and I kick the door open.
“No…I mean it,” she says as I step into her apartment, still holding her in my arms. “You’re like…the most beautiful man.”
“That’s very sweet of you,” I say, as I open a few wrong doors (closet, bathroom) until I find her bedroom. I walk in and lay her down on the bed, then pull away, setting her bag on the night table. “You should probably just rest a bit, let it pass.” I unlace her boots and ease them off gently, setting them on the floor before straightening up to go. This feels familiar, although I haven’t carried a too-drunk Margo home from a party and put her to bed since our undergrad years. “You need anything? Water, or—”
“Yeah.” Margo smiles.
“What?”
Instead of answering, she mischievously beckons me closer. I look at her, dress rolling up around her thighs, twisting her body up in the sheets, my imagination starting to whirl a little.
“Come here!” she yelps impatiently.
This could mean trouble—the problem is, I like trouble. I groan and go nearer to the bed.
“Closer,” she giggles, and I’m taken with the smile, the way she grinds into the bed…
“What?”
Her hand pulls on my shirt, her smile goes and instead her mouth is open now, weakened like she’s preparing to kiss me. I could so easily fall into her here, so easily bring my mouth onto hers, put my own hands under her clothes. I can almost taste her, appetite stirring…
Except being a real man doesn’t just mean knowing when to make a move, it also means knowing when you shouldn’t.
“Nice try,” I say, pulling back.
Margo laughs and pounds her fists onto the bed with disappointment.
“But I need to see what’s under your shirt. You still got those Grand Canyon abs, I bet.”
“Ok. That’s my cue to go,” I say, half-out the door. “See you tomorrow.”
“No! Come on! Please! I remember the view was fucking amazing. Just a little peek. A tiny little peek for old time’s sake. Come on, Owen! Don’t be an asshole. You know you want to show it off.”
I look back at her, hand on the doorknob, and find myself laughing.
“Happy now?” I say, pulling up my shirt a little way.
Margo screams and falls back onto her pillows laughing.
“I knew it! Just as perfect as that night you got locked out of the girl’s dorm,” she says, as I close the door and leave.
When I get back to my car, I’m still smiling.
