Book Review: Nothing Personal

Nothing Personal– Karina Halle

Language: English

Format: Kindle

It’s just business, nothing personal…until your ex becomes your new boss.

Nova Lane is having the worst week ever. 
✔️Her latest relationship? Ended while on her much-needed vacation. 
✔️First day back at work? Her beloved boss has quit. 
✔️And despite all her hard work? She’s not being considered for his position.

The one who is being considered is none other than Kessler Rocha. 
✔️Her ex-coworker and ex-lover. 
✔️The man who broke her heart five years earlier. 
✔️The reason she moved thousands of miles away, switched jobs, and created numerous voodoo dolls in Kessler’s (very burly, very handsome) likeness.

In the corporate world they say it’s just business, nothing personal.

But with their history and all this delicious new sexual tension, Nova and Kessler are about to show just how personal things can get.

NOTHING PERSONAL is a sweet, sexy & hilarious STANDALONE ROMANCE with a single dad, enemies-to-lovers, second-chance office romance twist from the NYT Bestselling Author of A Nordic King. This book contains foul language, raunchy humor, graphic sex and loads of other fun stuff

As I’ve said before Karina Halle has been one of my favorite contemporary authors for a while now. I follow her on Instagram and I’m loving her content more than ever. I’ve noticed that lately she’s been very sincere about what she’s been going through with her anxiety and other health issues and I think it’s very brave for her to be able to expose her inner battles with us. I know some people get bothered by this for some unexplained reason, but I absolutely share the fact that these types of confessions can help other people not to feel alone in the world.

Karina Halle doesn’t stop impressing me with her stories. I read this book on my flight back to Madrid after the Christmas Holidays and I was feeling very homesick. However, she had me laughing out loud in the middle of the plane (you know, everyone around me sleeping and all) guess I’m not going to become a popular flyer anytime soon. I mean, Geckos? Can you blame me? That had me cracking up like a little kid and kind of reminded me of my childhood in Dominican Republic. You know we have these amazing beaches, right? Well, in the middle of the night don’t be surprised if you encounter a family of toads, which are very similar to geckos and lizards…right in front of you. It’s not unusual to see grown macho men running for their lives because of these, might I say, mosquito hunters. They actually come very handy when you’re by virgin beaches and those mosquitoes are the sucking the life out of you.

My family and I have a very special place that we love to go during the weekends, but it’s usually filled with toads in the evening and sometimes spiders. So, the book totally reminded me of that particular beach town we usually go to since I was a very little girl. To see my siblings and cousins pranking each other with toads and little spiders. Even guests were usually pranked on with wet pieces of cloth, since they thought we were throwing toads at them they would jump up and down until they realized it wasn’t a toad at all.

I love when this author uses these beach destinations as her settings, just like Heat Wave and Where Sea Meets Sky. It’s amazing how, although these books are all very different from one another, they remind me of my beloved childhood summer house. I can actually picture myself in this safe haven experiencing what each one of these characters are going through.

Moreover, my favorite part was the buildup of Nova and Hunter’s relationship. I adore when we have toddlers in novels, like it happened in A Nordic King. I’m of the opinion that it’s very easy to bring humor to the story using kids. Also, I think it was a way to brighten up the situation whenever things got tense between Kessler and Nova.

All in all, this was worth seating 9 hours straight reading non-stop. So, if you haven’t already, go get your copy, I promise that if you’re having a bad day, it will get better.
