The Project by R.L. Mathewson Release Blitz

The Project by R.L. Mathewson

From New York Time’s bestselling author of the Neighbor from Hell series comes a heartwarming romantic comedy about the only thing that matters when you’re about to lose everything that you’ve ever wanted.

The one person that you can’t live without.

She should probably mention that she had no idea what she was doing, but since that would probably result in her new boss, Devyn MacGregor, CEO of Carta Hotels and the incredibly handsome man that didn’t look like he knew how to smile, firing her, Andi Dawson decided that it would be in her best interest to keep that fact to herself. After years of doing a job that had slowly destroyed her will to live, she needed a change, something different, something that gave her a clue about what she was supposed to do with her life, but more importantly, she needed to figure out how she was supposed to keep a secret that could destroy the only thing that mattered to her.

Just. One. More. Time.

Devyn was so close to having everything that he’d ever wanted when everything suddenly went to hell. He should have seen this coming, should have stayed focused, and he really should stop thinking about the small woman that he should probably fire. He had four months to fix this and he had no idea how he was going to do it, but he knew that he was about to make the biggest mistake of his life.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Andi is very much the center of this story and I adored her. She is a unique woman with a gift for numbers and a love of bacon. She also has a complete inability to multi-task, which makes her not at all suited to the job as Devyn’s secretary, a job she ends up in unintentionally. I love that I never knew what she was going to say and her interactions with Devyn, particularly early on, were so entertaining. I loved the way that Devyn gave her space to be herself even before a romantic relationship had developed.

A project that Devyn’s company is working on goes sideways and Andi and the fallout see our couple trying to unravel a mystery. I’m a sucker for a mystery and this added an element of danger and a good amount of tension to the story.

One thing that was missing from The Project is friendships. Aside from Devyn’s friend and co-worker, Lucas, and Andi’s brother, Drew, there isn’t any meaningful interaction with other people close to our couple. Even the relationships with Lucas and Drew aren’t explored in any depth.

I really enjoyed The Project. Andi and Devyn’s romance was delightful. I think the author did a particularly good job capturing what it is like at the start of a relationship when you can’t keep your hands off each other. I’d definitely recommend The Project.

This is a really fun romance with a quirky heroine and a grumpy overworked ambitious hero, with a corporate mystery thrown in! Whilst I must admit that I had the prime suspect identified early on, the twists and turns were highly enjoyable – and who would expect a romance with a side of auditing bank transactions could be so sexy!

Andi finds herself being interviewed and getting a job she was not expecting – but desperate to get away from the isolation of the accounting office, she takes the role and does her best. We soon see that multi-tasking and dealing with people are not high up her skillset, however, Devyn is enchanted by her, and finds that she has something special that he does not want to live without. The power dynamics and ethics of the situation give him cause for concern; he also cannot draw himself away from her.

I really enjoyed how he accommodates her particular ways, how she smoothes his harsh edges, and how they cannot help but fall for each other. Through some confounding, involved, and demanding months, they develop an empathy which comes off the page, as well as a deep and abiding friendship which makes their romance so much the sweeter.

Drew, Andi's firefighting twin, is a really fun character in this book, and does a great job of bringing us back to earth and being Andi's very best friend when she needs support. That link back to her past as well as the clear love between them adds a dynamic which helps us understand her better, and recognise her for the special person Devyn wants in his life.
