Paris Lights by C.J Duggan
C.J. Duggan’s new adult romance series Heart of the City is one of my favorites. Each book is a standalone novel and features a romance story in a different, exciting city (Paris, New York, and London are the ones out now). Paris Lights is the first book in the series and follows twenty-five-year-old Claire Shorten as she spends a romantic weekend in Paris with her boyfriend…or so she thinks, until he dumps her in the City of Lights and she is left alone and confused. Instead of returning home and drowning herself in tears, Claire finds a job in a kitchen of a small hotel. When the high-powered business tycoon Louis Delarue comes to the hotel for lunch, Claire somehow manages to impress the gorgeous millionaire and his business luncheon from hell. However, Claire isn’t off the hook that easily… Louis can’t seem to stay away from the small hotel and comes back for a second course…

Egomaniac by Vi Keeland
New York Times Bestselling author Vi Keeland delivers yet again a new sexy romance. The night Emerie first met Drew, she thought he was breaking into her new Park Avenue Office. Attempting to attack him with her fancy new self-defense skills, Emerie was shocked to see Drew just standing there, chuckling with amusement. Of course her intruder had to be arrogant too. Except that Drew wasn’t really an intruder; he was the actual occupant of Emerie’s “new” office. Turns out she got scammed into thinking the office was available for lease when Drew was on vacation, only to be out of ten grand and a fabulous work space. Instead of trying to find a new place, Emerie takes up an offer that is too good to pass up… Drew allows her to stay in his office as long as she answers his phones while his secretary is out. As two opposites try to share the same work space – one an arrogant, gorgeous, divorce attorney and the other a caring, confident marriage counselor – they start to realize they do have one thing in common: an unexplainable attraction to each other that becomes harder and harder to resist…
