Summary: I’m cursed. Yes, cursed and this isn’t some paranormal fantasy. This is my real life. Karma has decided to last out on me. I’ll never find my true love and I’m learning to accept that. The only problem is; he isn’t. He’s starting a war with karma and everyone knows karma always fights back with a vengeance.
Gabby Taylor is screwed. On her first day at her new internship, she runs into the guy she’s been fighting to avoid. The one guy whose family despises her and she drunkenly gave her virginity away to. And he’s her new co-worker.
She is messing up everything Dalton Douglas has planned. She climbed her way into his thoughts, thrown her bags down and he could’t manage to evict her- even if it cost him everything he’s been
working his ass off for. The only problem is: she’s fighting him. He will fight to keep her but can he manage to hide his own secrets that would ruin everything between them?
My thoughts: A new notch on my NA reads, Karma is a novel that starts pretty interesting. Gabby is a girl that has drunkenly given up her virginity to her step-cousin, Dalton. Six months after the event, they have to work together at their parents PR firm. After Gabby never returned his text or calls. Awkward. But also a very fun premise for a NA romance.
Shortly after the book begins, we also meet Asher, Gabby’s step-brother, a guy who would totally do if they weren’t kind of related. Asher also internships ad Douglas PR in the IT department (smart and sexy! great combo). Eventually, Gabby and Dalton end up working together on a project and have to spend time together. I really their project with governor Gentry and his mistress. Interesting stuff about crisis management, even though I think such a high profile case would have been left for some experienced professionals. There are few plot twists especially in the second part of the book, that makes it very interesting.
I liked how the book switched from Gabby’s to Dalton’s point of view. Both of them seemed realistic characters with insecurities. I liked the struggle Dalton went through thinking how is going to give up his wealth, just to be with Gabby. For Gabby, I enjoyed how she wasn’t really okay with her mother breaking up a marriage and how she can’t come up to terms with that.
There were quite a few disbelieving details, like parents arranging marriages. But let’s say in this context it was more believable than in other books as the Douglas family wasn’t that rich. There was a bit of a plot inaccuracy at the end, so I guess better beta-readers next time. What I didn’t know from the beginning and really would have liked to know was that the book ended on a cliffhanger. I can’t wait to get to the next book and see what Gabby will do next.
Btw, I’m totally team Asher. I know always rooting for the underdog, What can say? I liked Asher better than Dalton.
My rating: 3.5 stars
