Work With Me Synergy Book 1 by Michelle McCraw Genre: Contemporary Romance
*** 2021 Romance Writers of America Vivian Award Finalist ***
She’s built a firewall around her heart. He’s determined to crack the code.
Alicia’s first gig for her new tech consulting business is a make-or-break opportunity, and she’s determined to make it. But when she strides into the kickoff meeting to show them who’s the (girl) boss, she’s shocked to find the guy she just asked out for coffee in the power seat. Yeah, the one with the sexy scruff, the bottomless brown eyes, and the gentle hands. He turned her down, and now he’s turned up in her meeting. Awkward.
Jackson’s seeing red, and it’s not only Alicia’s stilettos. Now a consultant’s in charge of what used to be his project, pouring salt in the wound of his exile from San Francisco to Austin. How is Jackson supposed to redeem himself? And why is he obsessing over unbuttoning buttoned-up Alicia?
Alicia’s not about to endanger her business by kissing a coworker. Jackson can’t afford another screw-up. They can’t be together, but working together means they can’t be apart.
Work with Me is a steamy, slow-burn, opposites-attract romantic comedy featuring a straitlaced single mom, a tech genius who hides a secret under a playboy exterior, and way too much tequila. Set in up-and-coming Austin, it’s the first book in the Synergy Software series.
Michelle writes sexy, geeky contemporary romance that just might make you laugh. A native Texan, she now lives in southwestern Ohio where she enjoys reading, travel, hiking, drinking bourbon, and spending time with her extraordinarily ill-behaved but adorable dogs. Oh, and her family, too.
23 and You and Me, her Vivian-finalist novel in the Most Anticipated category, is a road-trip romantic comedy with unexpected DNA test results, found family, and a happily ever after. It has also been a finalist in the Contemporary Romance Writers’ Stiletto Contest and the Windy City Romance Writers’ Four Seasons Contest.
