Work in Progress by Staci Hart



I never thought my first kiss would be on my wedding day.

But here I stand, clutching a bouquet of pale pink roses behind the doors of a Las Vegas chapel, and at the end of the aisle is the absolute last man I imagined would be waiting for me.

Thomas Bane.

Bestselling author. Notorious bad boy. Savagely handsome, dark as sin, chiseled as stone. And somehow, my soon-to-be husband.

Marry him, and I’ll land my dream job. Save him, and I’ll walk away with everything I’ve ever wanted. All I have to do is remember it’s all for show. None of it is real, no matter how real it feels.

But first, I have to survive the kiss.

And with lips like his, I don’t stand a chance.

We met Amelia in Player. You know the super shy, quiet one. Well, this is her story.

Amelia’s goal is to become an editor for one of the big 5 publishing houses (dream job!) Unfortunately, she has to come out of her house and talk to people, not her strong suit. Anytime she is in a social setting, she becomes a nervous, mumbling wreck! Attempting to grab the bull by the horn, she takes an assignment for her job at USA today, that assignment being Thomas Bane. The same Thomas Bane she bashes in her reviews. He may be a genius with his writing but the romantic aspect of his stories fail miserably. When speaking to him our virginal Amelia can’t help but think ( KISS ME)



Thomas Bane. (Sighs) he is the DARK HORSEof the book industry. You know, the one with either a popstar, supermodel or actress on his arm. The one who’s public break ups make the news. Did I mention he is also the one who seems to get caught up in crazy fights? He is also a genius with his writing but his main dudes have one thing in common.. “Unforgiveable sins”. The thing is, Thomas finds himself in a bind. He has a deadline and absolutely no story. After meeting Amelia face to face, he sees an opportunity and he takes it. 

What happens when nasty boyand an angelcome together?


Seriously, you are going to have to read to find out.

I will tell you that Amelia almost has Thomas pegged TO a T. While Thomas is AMAZEDat every turn when it comes to his muse. She is PERFECTfor him, in every way. 

I love Staci’s writing, her wit, her humor and her heart.

Work in Progress has me wishing that Mr. Bane could Be My Loverand left me oh so Intoxicated.

A Must Read!!
