Synopsis: A serial dater and self-proclaimed ninja, Liv Lester thought accidentally running into her date from hell was as bad as her day could get. As it turns out, there areworse things. Not only is her company getting sued, but the only person able to clear its name has disappeared without a trace.A brilliant lawyer on the fast track to becoming a senior partner, Dax Morgan follows strict rules that don't include crazy women who pretend to be his girlfriend. His latest case was supposed to be easy. Get in, sue, get out. He certainly didn't plan on meeting Liv, who throws color into his black and white world and makes him question his loyalties. After chance encounters, misunderstandings, and a trailer load of sticky notes, the two grudgingly team up and find out they might not be as different as they first thought.
Excerpt:“Good, because I would never want to erase a moment we spent together. It doesn’t matter what happened.” Dax pulled her back. “I think I’m in love with you.”
Liv stared at him, eyes going round. She pinched him, earning a howl in response.
“What are you doing? Why did you pinch me?” he asked.
“Just making sure I’m not hallucinating again.” She grabbed a hold of his shirt, pulling him closer. “How much do you love me?”
“Enough to ignore that you felt the need to pinch me. I will also ignore that you think you are having hallucinations, because nothing will stop me from kissing you again. And then I plan to strip this god-awful sweater off you and show you just how much I’m in love with you.”
She kissed him lightly, brushing his lips with hers. “This sweater is not ugly.” Replacing her lips with her hands, she traced his lips. “But you may strip it off me.”
A triumphant grin on his face, he moved his hands underneath the offending garment, tracing her waist and slowly moving up her body, taking the sweater with him on the way up.
ABOUT DREA ST. JAMESMastering uncooperative cooking utensils, fixing wardrobe malfunctions and the ability to speak to dogs are all on Drea’s bucket list. One thing she did tick off her list recently is the conquest of the computer. Well for the most part. There may have been a few incidents proving the contrary to be true. Just don’t mention a supposedly missing ON button to her. Drea lives with her husband and two extroverted dogs in Perth, Western Australia, the world’s most isolated capital city whose population thinks daylight savings is code for government conspiracy. Lucky there is always Drea(m)land, where everything is possible. Even staying out past nine o’clock on a school night. Drea is currently in treatment for her book addiction.
I wanted to read this book from the start
And it was such a joy for my heart!
Liv is a little bit of a klutz like me
But there is no other way I'd rather have her be.
She is so sassy and sweet
And everything she did was just a treat.
Dax is one sexy hunk
Even though he sometimes does act like a punk.
He is also funny and made me smile
And my love for him will last a lot longer than a while!
Sticky Notes was so fantastic and fun,
I am a little sad that it is now done.
I very much enjoyed reading this
And the next book in the series is one I will most definitely not miss!
