Dear Mister…**strike out** no, too formal.
Hey there sweet cheeks *strike out* no, too forward.
To whom it may concern,
Full disclosure; before we move forward with this email, I would like it to be known that I have consumed an adequate amount of alcoholic beverages to intoxicate myself tonight. Three margaritas, two shots, and one beer—because it was free.
I think it’s important to be open and honest with your co-workers, don’t you?
So here I am, being honest. Drunk but honest. Or just drunk with lust? You decide.
I like you so much it’s clouding my judgment and making me do things I never would sober. Like write this letter.
I have a hopeless, foolish, schoolgirl crush on you when you are the last person on earth I should be falling for. Did you know people around the office call you a sadist? An egomaniac. An insensitive, arrogant prick. Your bark is worse then your bite, and you don’t scare me. The fact is, I’d love that bite of yours to nip at my bare skin while we’re both wearing nothing but sheets.
For once I want you to look at me as more than one of your employees.
And as long as we’re being honest, that navy blue suit you wear? With the crisp white shirt? It really makes me want to loosen your tie and show you who’s boss.
Love, Sincerely, Yours is one of those books where I just want to write “I LOVED EVERY MOMENT OF IT!” and be done with my review. There’s no way I can convey how much fun I had reading this book by simply describing the plot and/or characters. It was one of those books that made me truly happy while reading it. I can only imagine what my face looked like while reading Love, Sincerely, Yours. I must have had a permanent grin on my face. It was one of those rom-com gems.
For your sake, I’m going to go into more detail. Love, Sincerely, Yours was an office romance. Rome Blackburn is the boss everyone loves to hate. He’s cocky, confident, and expects loyalty and perfection from his employees. Peyton Lévêque works for Rome’s company. She’s confident, sassy, and intelligent. In all the time she’s worked for him, she’s lusted over the arrogant prick, but he’s never noticed her. One night, in an alcohol induced confidence, Peyton anonymously sends Rome a sexy email to get his attention. Angry and slightly turned on, Rome goes on a quest to discover which employee sent it.
What made this book so much fun were the two relationships going on at the same time during this book. There was Rome and Peyton’s employee/employer relationship that was sort of a love-hate thing. Then there was Rome and his email relationship with “Yours” that was also a love-hate sort of thing. Rome was filled with so much anger and curiosity. Everything Peyton did drove him absolutely nuts. Everything Rome did made Peyton irritated. Rome would act like the jerky boss he was and Peyton had no problem flipping what he was dishing out right back at him. Yet both were secretly infatuated with each other. They had this off the charts chemistry. It made for great banter, attraction, and an overall fun experience. The fact that Peyton was his sexy secret tormentor made it all that more exciting to read.
I honestly don’t have anything very negative to say about Love, Sincerely, Yours. There was one little character that shows up only once and then was kind of left out of the epilogue, but I’m wondering if maybe that was fixed before the final book was released. It was something that I noticed, but had forgotten about until I was discussing the book with friends. Otherwise, I absolutely ADORED this book.
I hope I have convinced you to read it. I highly recommend this book if you love witty dialog, hilarious confrontations with loads of sexual tension, and fun office romances.

I open the company messenger app on my phone and scroll through the executive names, knowing full well I’m about to break a policy. It’s the company’s phone, and the company’s app, and I’m about to use it for personal use. To flirt.
With my boss.
I close my eyes, find his name—next to it is a little, green dot, which means. . .
He’s on the app.
I’ve never talked to him live before so this is a huge step, but then again, it might be more fun to get his initial reactions to my comments.
Debating it for all but two seconds, I type out a message to him, making sure I’m signed on under my LSY persona.
HandsRomingMyBody: Hey you.
My text turns into a new message on the app and I wait on bated breath to see if he will respond. Nerves prickle up my spine, my fingers feeling numb, my mind playing mutiny with my heart just as little dots appear letting me know he’s typing.
Oh God, I don’t think I’ve been more excited.
