What’s a girl to do when a man who’s countless shades of wrong feels oh-so-right?
Ambitious book editor Asha Tate is a hopeless romantic. Despite her mediocre track record with men, she believes in swooning, sighing, and the everlasting love of true soul mates. Sure, sex is okay, but she’s not someone who’s ever been driven by her animal urges.
When Asha stumbles upon the scorching hot Instagram feed of someone calling himself Professor Feelgood, she falls in lust for the first time. Not only is she left panting over the professor’s insane body, but his angst-filled poetry about losing his one true love speaks straight to her soul.
Desperately in need of a bestseller for her struggling publishing company, Asha knows the professor’s potential to sell to his millions of loyal followers could be the lifeline her bosses need. However, the ink is barely dry on a book deal before she realizes she’s made a terrible mistake. Sure, the professor is incredibly talented and sexier than any man has a right to be, but the man behind the persona isn’t at all who she pictured. In real life, he’s intense, arrogant and infuriating, and his uncanny ability to rub her the wrong way turns her dream project into a total nightmare.
Knowing that the professor is everything she doesn’t want in a man should help Asha ignore her occasional urges to mount him, but she quickly learns that explosive, unwanted chemistry can make even smart people do stupid things.
Don’t miss this sexy new standalone from the international bestselling author of Bad Romeo and Broken Juliet.
No one writes an enemies-to-lovers romance like Leisa Rayven! I will admit I dove right into this without reading the synopsis because Ms. Rayven is one of my favorite authors and I will read anything she writes. I was immediately captivated by Asha and her arch nemesis Professor Feelgood and I read this book in one sitting!
Asha is an ambitious member of the Whiplash Publishing team in New York. If she can just land one big author, then she has a shot at becoming an editor. She finds the elusive “Professor Feelgood”on Instagram, a social media star because of his sexy, grainy photos and his prolific, angsty and romantic writings.
“A recovering asshole engaging in brutal introspection one day at a time. I am a collection of bad choices masquerading as a semi-functioning man.”
Asha is a total romantic who believes in a happy ever after but when she meets the Professor, sparks fly because they literally cannot stand to be in the same room together. But for reasons that are later revealed, the Professor requests in his contract that only Asha will work with him on his upcoming book. The deal is signed and Asha is promoted to editor.
I stop breathing as I read his words.

The characters are colorful and real and I adored the descriptions of the publishing industry. If you are looking for a sexy, angsty, funny romance that is intelligent and filled with real emotion, then you will love this book!! Highly recommend.
Loving someone is the easiest thing in the word. Making them love you back is the hard part.
