Bennett Fox walked into my life on one hell of a crappy Monday morning.

I was late for the first day at my new job—a job I’d now have to compete for even though I’d already worked eight years to earn it, because of an unexpected merger.

While I lugged my belongings up to my new office, a meter maid wrote me a parking summons.

She’d ticketed a long line of cars—except for th

”Thank you for loving me even when I hated myself.” My heart let out a big sigh. That’s the thing about love. We don’t fall in love with the perfect person; we fall in love despite a person’s imperfections.

WE SHOULDN’T is an “enemies to lovers” office romance between two co-workers competing for the same job at their advertising agency. Bennett is a sexy, overly cocky, ladies man, who doesn’t believe in relationships. Annalise is the bea

I can't tell you how much I loved it!!The story was addictive and heartwarming!The romance was intense,sweet and steamy!


I loved the connection between Annalise and Bennett, I think it's one of the best parts in We shouldn't. I have a smile in my face with these two!I loved Annalise so much, I could easily relate with her!Bennett may started as a little bit of a jerk but I liked him a lot.He is charming and sexy.

I loved this story and at some point I didn't want it to end!

‘WE SHOULDN'T' Is a full length, standalone, sexy enemies-to-lovers office romance novel by Vi Keeland, spoken in 'Dual Perspectives'

There may be a fine line between love and hate..But straddling that line can be so much fun. ❝I haven’t been able to focus on anything since the day you walked into the office. You’ve starred in all my fantasies, even when I tried to hate you.❞

Snarky perfection…

I love this author’s way of displaying the worst – and best – of her characters while entertaining me all the while. Bennett is commitment-phobic and work-centric but he is much more than that. He is not one-dimensional; instead, he is layers and layers of depth that come out in surprises for me as well as him! Annalise is beautiful, talented and full of spice. She is good without being too sweet or cloying and not afraid to admit her foibles with refreshing, and sometimes emba

The beginning of this book was an instant catch for me. I mean... usually it takes a while for me to become interested in a book, but this one got me interested from the beginning!
I liked the connection the main 2 characters had and even the story. I’m so used to reading about an office romance, that I thought nothing would surprise me anymore. But I was pleasantly surprised when this book proved me wrong.
I missed reading a 5 stars book! And We shouldn’t brought back this feeling to me! ❤️

Ummmm…. Vi Keeland, I think you titled this book wrong. It shouldn’t be We Shouldn’t but We Should. We definitely should read this fun, highly entertaining, and oh so swoony read. This book had all the composition of a great romantic comedy with a little heat and spice thrown into the mix. A must read for anyone looking for romance that had sarcastic humor, banter, playfulness and of course that romance that will leave you smiling big.

This started off okay I guess. Then it quickly went downhill. It’s an enemies-to-lovers book but come on, authors there’s a thin line between bickering and being a straight up asshole. It was all fun and games up until Bennett’s insults became really hurtful and unacceptable. Bennett and Annalise’s relationship dragged. Oh God. The book dragged so much and I think it’s one of the slowest paced NAs I’ve ever read. At first it was slow but acceptable. Then, it became so boring I literally had to p ...more

Your standard competing for one job office romance. The thing is there isn’t very much angst between the characters. There’s a bit of fun heated tension, but this story is mostly about the hero Bennett getting over his hangups and realizing his feelings and who he is underneath his layers of masks. Annalise is just a good heroine. She’s not too quirky. She’s not too tough. She just is those things but in a normal dosage. I liked her, but she didn’t STAND OUT, and neither did Bennett.

I am between 2 and 3 stars for this book.

Vi Keeland books promising a sexy, cute and fun push and pull/ banter. We Shouldn't have her signature. However, I found it boring and dry. The story and the plot is predictable. Its like Miss Keeland runs out of idea and repeating old formula.

I decide to round it down to 2 stars. What a disappointment.

OMG, I love, love, love this book! Sexy and smart with sensational banter, fantastic chemistry and a gorgeously emotional love story, this enemies-to-lovers office romance absolutely blew me away and I loved every moment of the ride and couldn’t put it down.

Holy. Buckets. Y’all, Vi Keeland may have just outdone herself. No, seriously. I am tempted to say that this is my favorite Vi Keeland book to date, but am afraid that would be a kneejerk statement based on the way my heart is fluttering and my pulse is pounding and my feels are all over the place in the best way. Oh, and also? My smile. SO BIG right now. Which is basically the mark of any truly great book, no?

So, let’s just go with it: We Shouldn’t is my favorite Vi Keeland book to date.

5 'Texas' Stars!

One of my top favorite books by Vi Keeland, that is for sure! An outstanding enemies-to-lovers story, full of banter, back and forth, sexual tension, emotions and a whole lot of sizzling chemistry. I always jump right in when it comes to Vi's creations. She is an auto-buy author to me and her works just click with my taste in romance novels. We Shouldn't was no exception, I simply adored every second of this story!

I have to be honest...for about the first third of the book, I was getting a bit frustrated with the whole same ol' tired formula but things shifted as we got to know more about Bennett and what happened in his past.

Bennett and Annalise competing against each other for the same position is a been there, done that multiple times BUT...I got such a kick out of Miss Super Organized (yes, I can relate!).

this book lacks "originality", but i'd give it to you that it's at least entertaining. i know it's probably unfair to call on its ingenuity because i also believe it's inevitable that a book sometimes bears resemblance to every other books.

but oh lord!! this is my fifth book by this author, and i started to notice that all of them basically tell the same story. even the characters are alike!! only their names and the setting aspect are different.

I'm still on my HOT, SUITED AND SEXY binge-listening extravaganza and I enjoyed this one just as much as the last. Yes, Vi Keeland is the reason I enjoyed it but it was definitely enhanced by the narrators, Andi Arndt and Sebastian York as well.

In We Shouldn't the characters get off to a rough start and I was appalled (while laughing my butt off) with what Annalise did to Bennett's car. What followed was a funny, sexy, sweet and swoon-worthy story about finding love where they

4 Beast Syndrome stars!

”All men fit into one Disney character or another…
…Beast syndrome is when a man constantly roars at you to scare you away. Perhaps he was less than magnanimous in his early day, which he thinks defines who he’s forever banished to be. So he tries to keep people from getting too close. But he’s not really the villain he thinks he is, and every once in a while, a peek of the prince underneath shines through. That usually just makes him roar louder.”

You totally SHOULD! With We Shouldn’t, Vi Keeland offers a new swoon worthy, enemies to lovers, office page-turner for readers to escape to.

The first time Bennett Fox saw Annalise O’Niel, she was vandalizing his car while untangling her hair from his windshield wiper. He couldn’t imagine how she got stuck there but thought she was a knock out and her antics were amusing. They even had a brief sparks flying moment when their eyes met in an elevator.

We Shouldn't by Vi Keeland was that perfect mix of forbidden and angsty feels. Oh and that cover! 😲 Let's just say you're in for a treat with this salacious enemies-to-lovers office romance 💃🏼

From the beginning of the story I was already smiling my face off! Bennett Fox will come off as an arrogant jerk with his lethal smirks, but behind the facet hides a man whose scarred and hurting #morefeels.
