Sam Huxton doesn’t do one-night stands, especially not with men she’s just met! But the hot guy at the bar was hard to resist and one night is all they share – no names, no numbers, just some much needed fun…
Until the same guy walks into Sam’s life the next day as her new employee. Sam never mixes business with pleasure and makes it clear an office fling with Ryan is off-limits. But after-hours…one thing can lead to another. Can Sam trust her heart and her business with the new guy?

The New Guy follows Sam, the CEO of a tech company and Ryan, her newest employee – which she didn’t realize when she took him home from the bar the past weekend. Sam must now navigate being the boss of someone she is wildly attracted to, while her company is being threatened and Ryan may be the only person who can save it.
THIS BOOK WAS ADORABLE. I really enjoyed the interactions between Sam and Ryan, and I feel like they both brought so much baggage with them that but were able to work through it together the right way. The character development was great from start to finish, and they helped each other to become better mentally and as people. I flew through this book in just a few hours because the banter and sexual tension between the characters was just captivating!
I do feel like a few plot points weren’t followed through to the end with the same attention that others were given, which caused it to fall just a bit flat. All the ends weren’t tied up, so I feel like I docked a star from The New Guy for this reason. Even if it’s small, I like when all plot points or question marks are closed up or answered. But overall, a cute read and well worth the time.
Happy reading, folks!
