Veronica and Colton are natural enemies. They get under one another’s skin without even trying and mix about as well as oil and water. Too bad they had a blistering one-night stand neither can forget before he became her boss but they vow it can never happen again. Until Veronica’s life becomes increasingly complicated and the release she finds at Colton’s hands is the only thing keeping her from imploding.
Poor Veronica just has one problem after another so I was already concerned for her before her slimy ex’s new wife showed up, turning Veronica’s world upside-down. There’s a lot going on here besides the romance, but it’s just the right amount of suspense to be exciting without overshadowing the love story. Their story is intense at times but I really liked these characters and couldn’t wait to see what happens next. Colton and Veronica are perfect together and they’re on fire. This is a steamy HEA that’s worth every minute.
I received an ARC from Grey’s Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

Not Without Your Love
by Lexi Ryan
The Boys of Jackson Harbor book 7
Available October 5, 2021
Two and a half years ago, I hit rock bottom and lost everything. Since then, I’ve turned my life around—no more booze, no more drugs, no more self-sabotage. With a new business to run and old promises to keep, the last thing I need is smart-mouthed hellcat Veronica Maddox disrupting my world.
Veronica’s as beautiful as she is infuriating. She pushes all my buttons. Maybe that didn’t matter before, but now she’s working for me. She keeps this place running. As a business owner, I appreciate that. As the man she hates and the one who can’t forget our wild night together, I’m slowly losing my mind. I told myself I could resist her, but we only get along when our hands are doing the talking. Before I know it, our relationship is anything but professional.
As a single mom, Veronica has a difficult past of her own, and when it comes knocking at her door, I find myself feeling inexplicably proprietary. Because no matter how much I try to convince myself otherwise, what started as two enemies looking for release has developed into something neither of us imagined possible. And while Veronica’s a complication I never wanted, she is exactly what I need.
Not Without Your Love is the seventh novel in The Boys of Jackson Harbor series. These books can all be read as standalones, but you’ll enjoy reading them as a series!
