Professional Boundaries by Jennifer Peel


Synopsis:

At thirty two, Kelli Bryant is ready to take on the world, and Chandler Media, as the new Marketing Director, but her plans are derailed when her promotion is given to none other than Ian Greyson, Kelli’s old college flame, her one true love and the one man she hoped to never see again.

Between Kelli’s determination to remain on top and Ian’s strict new office policies, there’s no shortage of fireworks in the office. Their explosive relationship spills over into their personal lives as Kelli tries to keep Ian at arm’s length and Ian desperately tries to win her back (during off hours only, of course).

Professional Boundaries is a clean romance filled with fun and humor. It is a story of two professionals who just can't keep it professional.

My Review: 5 Stars

May 2017: 

Second time reading Professional Boundaries. *dreamy sigh* Oh my gosh! I still absolutely LOVE this book! Why did I wait 2 years to read it again?! Seriously... why?! Haha. I do have to say that since it had been 2 years it was like reading it all over again for the first time! I found myself giggling, letting out little dreamy sighs and just falling in love all over again with Kelli and Ian! <3

May 2015: 

My first thoughts when I finished reading Professional Boundaries was why in the world did I take so long to read this?! It was really cute and I loved it!

Kelli had her heart broken 13 years ago by Ian. He was her first love and one day just walked out of her life... never to be heard from again. She thought that she was completely over him until one day he shows up back in her life... and takes her dream position at Chandler Media.

Emotions are crazy and Kelli does everything she can to guard her heart... she refuses to let Ian back in. Little does she know... she never stood a chance. And everyone knew that except Kelli herself. She was constantly telling everyone nothing was ever going to happen between them again... that he never loved her and he never will. *sigh* Stubborn, blind woman! Lol.

While other reviews I've read bash Ian and say how much they did not like him... I have to say I am the minority... I LOVED him!! He just cracked me up!! Oh my heck!! The man definitely has a sense of humor... ;) Hehe. And I have to say... I could understand why he did what he did. He wanted her to experience life... he didn't want her to have any regrets... he loved her enough to let her go.

Kelli on the other hand... *shaking my head* I seriously wanted to slap her for the first half of the book! Oh my heck! Can we say childish much?! Sheesh woman!! She took it a bit too far at times and could be a real brat! I understand that she was hurt and her heart was broken... I really do but she was a 32 year old acting like an immature teenager at times. *sigh* I was so glad when she finally started accepting that her feelings were just as strong as ever and that she had a 2nd chance with the one and only love of her life. Once this started happening I just could NOT put the book down! :) I think one of my favorite parts of the book were their park dates. So sweet! I loved it! <3

And can I tell you how happy I was when I got an epilogue?! Eeeek!! Nothing makes this girl happier than closer!! *dreamy sigh* And it was a great ending to an amazing book!! This was my very first book by Jennifer Peel and I am happy to announce that I have another favorite author!! I can't wait to read her other books in my collection!! :)

And yes... after browsing my hero and heroine boards on Pinterest I have found my perfect Ian and Kelli! I've said it before and I'll say it again... this is one of my favorite parts when it comes to reviewing!! ;) Hehe. So... without further adieu... here is my Ian and Kelli...

    1. YAY!! You have no idea how happy that makes me!! I'm always nervous when it comes to authors seeing my picks for casting... totally random... I know!! But still... I have to find not only the perfect hero/heroine but the perfect picture as well!! Hehe. It's so much fun though!! To me it makes the book that much more enjoyable when you actually see the characters faces and sometimes hear their voices in your head... ;)
