Egomaniac Blog Tour: Lauren's Review!




Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00072]
The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office. I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills. He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.

Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant. Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.

Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated. Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent. I was swindled out of ten grand.

The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place. I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind. I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.

The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages. The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing. And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.


For the most part, if the name Vi Keeland is stamped across a cover, I can safely assume I’ll enjoy the words I find beyond it. Egomaniac was no different. It’s a sweet story about a chance encounter between a lawyer and therapist.

The title alludes to the fact that Drew Jagger is an egomaniac. I kind of beg to differ. It seemed to me that Drew is simply a man. He wasn’t overly full of himself. He wasn’t rude or uncaring. In fact, Drew opened his office to Emerie right from the start. He took pity on a woman who desperately needed it. Granted he’d just seen her panties, and maybe hoped to somehow jump in them, but who am I to judge his motives? So, the title seemed a little off. I think something like Crude would have better fit both Drew’s personality and the story line. That man could dirty talk the pants off a nun. For real.

Let’s talk a little about Emerie… She’s just the right amount of ballsy and compassionate. The woman doesn’t let Drew get away with much, she’s smart yet naïve. There’s an innocence about her that draws in both Drew and the reader. It’s almost impossible not to love Emerie.  

I will admit that I enjoyed watching the relationship grow and develop between Drew and Emerie. I did find that Vi left some loose ends hanging that could have potentially added great angst and drama to the story. Specifically, in reference to one horny {I believe} assistant district attorney.

In all honesty,  Egomaniac was yet again a little piece of gold spun from the creative mind of a very talented woman. Adding this book to your TBR list, or better yet, one-clicking it, should be an easy decision. It’s fun, fast, and hot, hot, hot. The story line isn’t too intense, allowing for a nice, relaxing, enjoyable read about two unlikely individuals falling in love.
