The competition is stiff. The stakes are high. And what happens on Halloween night is definitely not suitable for work.

Celeste Greene and Ben Addison didn’t realize the internship-to-hire opportunity was actually a contest, but neither of these talented web designers can afford to walk away.

After betrayal destroyed her fabulous life in New York City, Celeste moved home to

This book was such a pleasant surprise! Skye was kind enough to send me a complimentary copy and I'm so glad she did! My favorite thing about NSFW you ask? COMMUNICATION. These characters literally "speak their truths" and it was so incredibly refreshing. Celeste and Ben were such a fun and super sexy couple. NSFW was steamy yet managed to be kind of sweet and emotional!

This book...OMG this book! Okay, so I'm a romance junkie, and I can be super picky about what I like and let me tell you, Not Suitable For Work blew me away! I am a sucker for office romances between rivals and/or enemies, and that's exactly what Celeste and Ben are. The tension hits from the moment they meet and it's full throttle from then on.

I adored Celeste and felt for her immediately. Here she was this young professional reeling from a devastating work experience and a monumental heartbre

While this is Skye McDonald’s debut release, it manages to have all the stellar craft abilities of a much more seasoned author and is an absolute delight to read. Granted I am mildly biased as I find Ms. McDonald to not simply be a brilliant writer, but also an amazing human. I am four-leaf-clover-at-the-end-of-a-rainbow level lucky to have my readerly world enhanced by knowing such fabulous authors.

You’ll thank me for introducing you to Ms. McDonald and her work. Guaranteed. I’ll take a dozen s

Full review and excerpt available on my blog, Laurie Reads Romance.

I really enjoyed Skye McDonald's "Not Suitable for Work" and absolutely recommend it. The writing is very mature, especially for a debut novel, and I found it to be very easy to read. I've always loved both the enemies-to-lovers and workplace romance tropes, and this novel manages to capture both of those themes superbly.

I adored both main characters, especially Celeste, and found them both to be well-developed and incredibly lik

I really enjoyed this enemies (at least on Celeste's part) to lover romance. Celeste is a character that you can really root for. She hasn't had it too easy since she left Nashville for NYC and only to return after a crappy ex-boyfriend helped her to sabotage her own career and then cheated on her. She needs this current job, but discovers on day one that it is only an intern to hire and there are two candidates, her and Ben. Only one of them will get the job and she is determined for it to be h ...more

Not Suitable For Work introduces readers to the wild and wonderful world of the Anti-Belles. An Anti-Belle is "a woman whose strength and intelligence make her amazing." I don't know about you, but I could use more stories in my life with strong and intelligent women serving in the leading roles.

McDonald combines fearless female leads with hot romantic foils to lead to steamy stories with depth. A strong ensemble cast rounds out this workplace romance between two ambitious web designers (Celest

One of my favorite things is connecting with authors. Skye McDonald reached out to me recently to read her newest release and debut Not Suitable For Work from her Anti-Belles series set in Nashville (clever series name right??). This book reminded me a lot of The Hating Game by Sally Thorne. I love a good workplace and enemies to lovers romance. Celeste and Ben are competing for the same job in a bit of an awkward position. They had great chemistry right away. I enjoyed this one but wish it had ...more

I loved the sound of this book from reading the synopsis and it did not disappoint! Celeste and Ben end up in a competition for one spot in a job they both need. There's no room for friendship here, so Celeste makes it clear from the beginning that Ben best keep his distance. Unfortunately, fate has other plans for these two. Ahh, lucky for us readers this well-written novel is just as delicious as it sounds.

Thank you to the author for sending me a copy of NSFW in exchange for an honest review.

Ok, so I’m a little wreaked after finishing NSFW last night. I loved this book. It had amazing chemistry & steam factor but also a struggle from the heroine that I felt deep. I cried so hard while reading this book but also felt the absolute high of finding love.

It’s amazing how easily words can have an affect on someone, positively or negatively. Especially if you are struggling to find your worth and som

I received an advanced copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Actual rating: 3.5, rounded up.

When Skye reached out to me to read her book, I was both flattered and excited! I love reviewing books and discovering new authors, and I'd already been trolling her Instagram for more news on her book when I saw in her bio she was releasing one. I'm pleased to report you need this book if you like contemporary romance/work place romances.

My favorite romance trope is, without a doubt, enem

*Thank you to Skye McDonald for providing this book in exchange for an honest review*

Not Suitable for Work follows the relationship between Celeste Greene and Ben Addison. Both showing up for the first day on their internship-to-hire opportunity, they quickly become work enemies when it's made clear only one of them will come out of this with a job. Even with sizzling chemistry, they both do their best to stay as far away as possible. But with chemistry like that, neither can avoid it for long

This book is definitely NSFW in the BEST way. It’s hot hot hot first off, and it also has a great storyline with depth and emotion. The main characters work their ass off for that HEA, and you go on the rollercoaster journey with them of love, loss, betrayal and trust. Not only are the main characters and their journey intriguing and gripping but the side characters add greatly to the book. You find yourself wanting to know more about each one of them, my personal favourite being Liv! Some scene ...more

Not Suitable for Work by Skye McDonald is a rivals to lovers contemporary romance.

This is Skye's debut novel that will be released on September 24th 2019.

I cannot wait until she releases book two in the Anti-Belle Series. She did an amazing job pulling you into the story. You can't help but fall in love Ben and Celeste.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves office romances, rivals to lovers, or contemporary romance.
