Release Blitz & Review: RIGHT WHERE I WANT YOU by Jessica Hawkins

Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 28, 2018


There’s a thin line between love and hate . . . and it cuts right through the middle of their office.

Bad boys? They run right over good girls like Georgina Keller.

But after a confidence-shattering breakup, she’s determined not to let anyone at her new workplace push her around—least of all the brooding creative director, a “bad boy of publishing” who’s made it clear she’s enemy #1.

Sebastian Quinn's taste for fast cars, late nights, and beautiful women may have gotten him to the top of a leading New York magazine, but the reputation that made him is suddenly threatening to end his career.

Georgina can help Modern Man shed its bad reputation, but in order to do that, she’ll have to start at the top—and no amount of rakish charm or inconvenient attraction will distract her.

Because if Sebastian gets her right where he wants her, it means she’s going down.

At the stadium’s concession stand, I took a tall stool, putting Georgina and I at eye level since she stood. “So, why didn’t you kiss François?” I asked. “Bad breath?”
She gasped into her hand. “My breath is fine.”
“I meant his. I’m sure yours is pure relish on a hotdog.”
She made a face. “Gross.”
“I happen to love relish,” I said. “But does François?”
Each time I said François with flourish, she flinched. I didn’t care. Something about him bugged me—I just couldn’t put my finger on it.
“We didn’t kiss because you interrupted us,” she pointed out.
“So? If I were in his position, and we both wanted that kiss, I wouldn’t let anyone stop me.”
Frank and I are clicking,” she said, scowling. “There was even mention of spending time at his summerhouse.”
She coughed into her fist. “Boca Raton.”
The idea of Georgina spending a summer with him in Boca Raton was tragic enough that I almost smiled. I got the sense she was playing up the date. If it was so great, why wasn’t she sitting here with him? And why was I more relieved than smug about that? “Meanwhile, Justin and I will be clamming in Montauk.”
“You two should really just make it official and announce your love to the world.”
“But then I wouldn’t get to flirt with pretty girls.”
“For someone who pretends to have as much game as you,” she said, “I still haven’t seen you successfully flirt with any girls since I’ve known you.”
I smirked. “How do you know I’m not flirting with you right now?”
“Since I met you, I’ve been feeling... more like myself than I have in a while.” 
If you're worried that this is just another office romance, fear not. Jessica puts her own little spin on this story that makes it completely unique and absolutely swoon worthy. This book makes you want to strive to be a BETTER you. 

Both Georgina and Sebastian are dealing with their own personal obstacles in life. Those particular drawbacks are what ends up linking them and eventually has them coming together because of it. His words had always gotten under my skin easily, something I'd mistaken for rivalry. Now, I saw it for what it was--compatibility. Sebastian may have a reputation that claims he's a womanizer and a play boy, but deep down he's hiding his true self. "I'm not the player you think I am --I only play one in the media." Georgina may appear to others like someone that can get easily walked over. Someone that is TOO nice. TOO kind. And because of that, Georgina felt like she couldn't show her true self. She feared that she wouldn't be accepted. "When I met you, I'd been trying to hide or overcome my flaws out of shame. Then you came along and told me I was allowed to have them. That I was allowed to be kind." All of Sebastian and Georgina's fears and insecurities are faced in this novel and through each other, they find their HEA.

There was undeniable chemistry between these two! I loved how you could feel their love slowly growing for each other in this novel. It was the epitome of slow-burn.You were able to see that they were finding a "home" within each other and at the same time, they were able to find themselves and overcome those obstacles in their lives. All they needed to do was find "the one" person that could see their flaws for what they were, BLESSINGS and LOVABLE.

Jessica's writing is so detailed and layered with depth that it's impossible not to get lost in it. If you're looking for a easy read with emotional depth, real life personal challenges and minimal angst, this is the book for you. It has some serious moments that have you relating to the characters and empathizing with them, but then it has some funny moments that have you laughing and full of butterflies. Sebastian is most definitely the type of man I would want in real life. #swoon. And I have to say I LOVED one particular secondary character, Justin...he made up for most of the comedic relief in this story and was quite entertaining! I would be interested in reading his story, if Jessica was so inclined to write it *wink*
