I never thought my first kiss would be on my wedding day.

But here I stand, clutching a bouquet of pale pink roses behind the doors of a Las Vegas chapel, and at the end of the aisle is the absolute last man I imagined would be waiting for me.

Thomas Bane.

Bestselling author. Notorious bad boy. Savagely handsome, dark as sin, chiseled as stone. And somehow, my soon-to-be husband.

Marry him, and I’ll land my dream job. Save him, and I’ll walk away with everything I’ve ever wanted. All I have to do is remember it’s all for show. None of it is real, no matter how real it feels.

But first, I have to survive the kiss.

And with lips like his, I don’t stand a chance.

Megan’s Review

“I was falling in love with my husband. And I had the undeniable feeling that he was falling in love with me too.”

If there is one author I will always go out of my way to read and one I rate so highly it would be Staci Hart. Her stories always appear to be so thoroughly and carefully thought out, with impeccable writing that always captures me from the go and characters that are as much different as they are relatable, intriguing, engaging and appealing. Staci’s talent astounds and inspires me in a way very few authors have the ability to do. Staci Hart’s newest release Work in Progress is an alluring, heart-warming and intense marriage of convenience story that was positively un-put-downable.

Amelia is a shy and slightly awkward book blogger who is so incredibly sweet, but who also has the ability to speak her mind once she comes out of her shell. She is the kind of heroine you have no option but to fall in love with, and relate to her in the most powerful way possible. I wanted nothing but the absolute best for her.

Tommy is a bestselling author with a major bad boy persona and his behaviours have gotten him into some hot water. He realises he needs to produce something astounding in order to get him out of the trouble he’s in. He needs to invest in the help of someone who will be honest and who will be always willing to give criticism when it’s needed. Perhaps marrying a sweet and kind girl will give him the public image to help his career.

“Amelia touched my greatest fear. She was everything I’d been running from, and I’d welcomed her into heart without hesitation.”

I loved both Tommy and Amelia and their whole relationship from start to finish. The absolutely lovely and shy bookworm and the bad boy author, who under his rough exterior lies the most beautiful man who cares more than he ever shows to the outside world.

Work in Progress was a beautiful and heart-warming romance that was so much fun to read and captured my attention and kept me fully engaged until the last word was read. I categorically and unconditionally loved this story and urge everyone to one click Work in Progress and fall madly in love with Tommy and Amelia.

About the Author:

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
