Review: Stuck-Up Suit by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

Stuck-Up Suit
by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

It started out like any other morning on the train.
Until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle.
He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world.
Who did the stuck-up suit think he was…God?
Actually, he looked like a God. That was about it.
When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out.
I might have picked it up.
I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers.
I might have held onto the mystery man’s phone for days―until I finally conjured up the courage to return it.
When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me.
So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk’s office.
I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first though.
I didn’t expect him to text back.
I didn’t expect our exchanges to be hot as hell.
I didn’t expect to fall for him―all before we even met.
The two of us couldn’t have been any more different.
Yet, you know what they say about opposites.
When we finally came face to face, we found out opposites sometimes do more than attract―we consumed each other.
Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for where I’d wind up when the ride was over.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

 

O.M.G… I thought I would never get surprised anymore by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, given the number of books I’ve read from them. Turns out, I am completely mistaken when all those wonderful crazy bantering between Graham Morgan and Soraya Venedetta turned into a more serious complications on the second half of the book. Gone were the hilarious and sexually / sensually charged text messages between these two highly-driven and intense lovers. The next thing I knew, my heart couldn’t handle all the stress and pressure and heavily-laden drama that these two had befallen.

Graham Morgan was a pompous jerk to Soraya during their initial interaction. Until Soraya stalked and discovered the real man behind the arrogance. I can’t believe I would fall for that stuck-up suit, too. I loved their exchange of texts and amusing e-mails through an advise column. Their easy-going, heartwarming, sensual connection made the book really exciting in the beginning.

I was looking forward to that kind of cool vibes throughout the entirety of the book, only to be disheartened by Graham’s paternity issues on the latter part of the story. OMG, I was in all kinds of knots and pain for Soraya, my heart got twisted and pinched, my lungs having a hard time getting oxygen into it. My only consolation, Chloe, she’s an angel and I wonder how she came from the devil mom. I felt so much sadness for Soraya though.. She’d done all unexpected things to Graham, and even through the storm, she didn’t exactly waver, she still surprised me. I know what she did may have been cringe-worthy and wasn’t exactly what you’d expected her to do, but given her trust issues, I understand why she chose to do it. Many wouldn’t agree with me because it made Soraya looked childish and immature, but as I see it, it had to be done.

By the way, my moments of grief and pain were momentarily replaced by an ear-piercing laughter when I got a glimpse of Chance Bateman and his traveling goat in the story. (Props to the Cocky Bastard inclusion!)

Keeland and Ward’s tandem always amaze me. When they write a story, expect the fun and twists and heart-pounding thrill only they could deliver. I would never get tired of reading their masterpieces.
