Blurb:
When my manager assigns me the task of finding a new wake up call service for our CEO, I think, how hard can this be?

Answer: practically impossible. It turns out that no wake-up call company in the world will take him on as a client. They’ve all had enough of his surly personality.

So in an effort not to lose my job, I secretly start making the calls myself, every day at 4:30 am sharp. OMG yes you read that right—four freaking thirty in the morning.

Confession: I’m not the nicest wake-up-call girl at that hour. Hello! Who wakes up before the roosters are even crowing? Luckily he doesn’t seem to mind my get-your-ass-out-of-bed attitude.

Day by day we’re becoming closer, and the calls start turning hot, like pay-by-the-minute hot and oh-so-wild. Snuggled under the covers with the moonlight streaming in the windows, we divulge our secrets to each other, but the one thing that he can never find out is that the sexy vixen who wakes him up every morning is just the lowly assistant who wears frumpy dresses. I can only imagine his disappointment.

Now he wants to take me out on a date and he’s scouring Manhattan to find me. He’s an overachieving billionaire bent on a mission. How much longer can I keep up this charade?

My Musings :

Theo and Lizzie meet as employee-boss and as anonymous people at least on Theo's side. And they start falling for each other which ends up with Theo trying to woo her.

Thus started my first read of 2019 and it is my romance in a while since I had started feeling bored with them.So what got me to get the book? You might think it was the cover but it was the title with the words - Wake up call girl. My first reaction was "What the heck is a wake up call girl?" I still haven't figured if it is a thing for real but the premise was wonderfully plotted into a really hot and fun romance by the author.

When I started the book, I thought Theo was this so serious go-getter person. Was I ever wrong? The first time when he started talking sexy on their morning calls,I literally spit out the water I was drinking. Because I had no idea that he had this side to him. Well it's true! All the nerdy guys have a dark sexy side to them! And is Lizzie any less? Nope! From the time she started the calls to the way she tried to get him to give up the idea of "wooing" her, I really enjoyed her personality! She was the perfect foil to his character. And that's why I believe they make a great and memorable couple.

The romance was fast and scorching hot. I am not one for too steamy pages so I skipped them. But if you guys like a bit of spice in your romantic reads then I think you might enjoy the sexy tangle between them. At first I felt that they fell for each other pretty fast and that made me sceptic about the couple. But as the story went on, I came to understand that the pace was right because they are both passionate people and that's how they roll!

Except for the heat between them which blindsided me, I enjoyed following their love story especially with the few fun times which made me laugh at their antics and with the other serious moments which had me shaking my head at Theo. All in all, I absolutely adored the pair and their antics! This is the first book I have read about the author and I have to say that I will not hesitate to pick up any of her books in the future. Another great find for a new year!!

My one line review : A scorching hot romance with some laughs and sniffles with a perfect passionate couple.
