— Massiel [taking a break] (rollitosdecanela) | 94 comments Nemesis (n.) 1) An opponent or rival whom a person cannot best or overcome.
2) A person’s undoing
3) Joshua Templeman


Lucy Hutton has always been certain that the nice girl can get the corner office. She’s charming and accommodating and prides herself on being loved by everyone at Bexley & Gamin. Everyone except for coldly efficient, impeccably attired, physically intimidating Joshua Templeman. And the feeling is mutual.

Trapped in a shared office together 40 (OK, 50 or 60) hours a week, they’ve become entrenched in an addictive, ridiculous never-ending game of one-upmanship. There’s the Staring Game. The Mirror Game. The HR Game. Lucy can’t let Joshua beat her at anything—especially when a huge new promotion goes up for the taking.

If Lucy wins this game, she’ll be Joshua’s boss. If she loses, she’ll resign. So why is she suddenly having steamy dreams about Joshua, and dressing for work like she’s got a hot date? After a perfectly innocent elevator ride ends with an earth-shattering kiss, Lucy starts to wonder whether she’s got Joshua Templeman all wrong.

Maybe Lucy Hutton doesn’t hate Joshua Templeman. And maybe, he doesn’t hate her either. Or maybe this is just another game.


Darcey | 179 comments ooft just reading the blurb makes me excited to start this hehe. how are we doing this? read a certain number of chapters and then stop or just read as much as you want and rant as you go? your choice xx


— Massiel [taking a break] (rollitosdecanela) | 94 comments I specially prefer everyone read at their own pace and just hide the spoilers, for example: I just read until the chapter 5 so I posted "Chapter 5 - (hide spoiler)", and then we can discuss when the other comments while catching up.
