Between taking night classes for her MBA and her demanding day job at a cruise line, marketing manager Henley Evans barely has time for herself, let alone family, friends, or dating. But when she’s shortlisted for the promotion of her dreams, all her sacrifices finally seem worth it.

The only problem? Graeme Crawford-Collins, the remote social media manager and the bane of her existence, is also up for the position. Although they’ve never met in person, their epic email battles are the stuff of office legend.

Their boss tasks each of them with drafting a proposal on how to boost bookings in the Galápagos—best proposal wins the promotion. There’s just one catch: they have to go on a company cruise to the Galápagos Islands…together. But when the two meet on the ship, Henley is shocked to discover that the real Graeme is nothing like she imagined. As they explore the Islands together, she soon finds the line between loathing and liking thinner than a postcard.

With her career dreams in her sights and a growing attraction to the competition, Henley begins questioning her life choices. Because what’s the point of working all the time if you never actually live?

Ladies and Gents, I think we have a winner. I’m so pleased by this book. Enemies-to-Lovers has been a favorite trope of mine and lately I have been devouring them.

Henley Rose Evans knows what she wants. She works hard for everything she has and her eyes have been set on the new promotion at her job. The problem is that her boss wants her to compete for the position with her archnemesis, Graeme. He is the social media manager at her company and lacks any real drive. At least that is what Henley tells herself after he takes credit for one of her ideas and gets chummy with the boss.

Graeme Crawford-Collins is ready to show that he is more than qualified for the show. Despite them working together for the last few years, Graeme and Henley has never met face to face. He is stunned that she is gorgeous and he wants to get to know her better. The problem is that she hates his guts and he can’t figure it out.

I liked how Henley went from hating Graeme to slowly liking him. Everything that she thought of him was a mistake. He is kind, handsome and charming. He has been through a lot of personal drama. I didn’t know if I should root for Henley or Graeme.

The side characters helped with the humor. I loved Henley’s friends and her sister. While the story didn’t focus on them, their stories played just an important role in Henley’s character development. She started off trying to please everyone and by the end, she figured out who she was as a person.

The only thing I couldn’t relate to was the ending. It seemed rushed and kind of perfect. Everything fell into place for everyone so neatly. There is no real surprise to how the story will unfold.  Overall, I recommend this for fans of funny and light hearted romances.
