RELEASE BLITZ, GIVEAWAY & REVIEW - Work-Love Balance by Allison Temple


The customer always comes first, but IT consultant Brady Jansen loves to hate Nash O’Hara. Except the fine line between hate and attraction means sometimes Brady can’t help it when he crosses the boundary between professional and personal.
Recently divorced, workaholic Nash knows he’s hard to please. When the smart-mouthed IT consultant he depends on to keep his office running offers a no-commitment hookup, it seems like exactly what he and Brady both need to get through a busy summer at work. No one has to know about their arrangement.
But the more time they spend together, the more secrets they have to keep from the people around them—and from each other. The lies are piling up, until it’s hard to tell who’s fooling whom. If Brady and Nash want to find the balance between work and love, a little honesty will go a long way.
Work-Love Balance is a 70k contemporary MM office romance. It’s hot enough you’ll want to make sure the air conditioning is on in your cubicle, and heartfelt enough you’ll want to smack both characters before the end. HEA guaranteed.

My Rating - 5 Stars!
Allison Temple's Work-Love Balance is cute from the start. And from there it just gets better, as emotions become involved. This is a delightful boss/employee romance between IT guy Brady and the extremely IT challenged Nash. When we meet Brady, we get to see his likable and funny side. As for Nash, we soon learn about his divorce, as well as his struggle to balance work and time with his kids. Nash has always been a micro-manager, never able to devote time to his family. And Brady has always been too much of a workaholic himself, trying to get his business off the ground. Neither man has been open to love. Until now. Their relationship is super sweet and romantic, as well as full of fun banter. These are two men who have always put work first, and seeing them develop a relationship with each other is super enjoyable. Adding to the fun, there is plenty of humor to offset the actual seriousness of each man. It's a great mix, creating a hot, opposites attract romance that I couldn't put down.
Their story also includes an ex husband, two enjoyable twin boys, and a whole lot of tension. The family moments with Nash are very well written, with the reader able to see both sides of the issues.

Told in alternating first person pov, the reader becomes fully immersed in the emotions of both characters. The writing style is wonderfully smooth, soothing, and comforting.
Work-Love Balance is a great story of trying to balance your life and finding a way to prioritize better. Allison Temple delights in this sweet and easy read. I love it all and highly recommend it.

Allison Temple has been a writer since the second grade, when she wrote a short story about a girl and her horse. Her grandmother typed it out for her and said she’s never seen so many quotation marks from a seven-year-old before. Allison took that as a challenge and has gone on to try to break her previous record in all her subsequent works.

Allison lives in Toronto with her very patient husband and the world’s neediest cat. She splits her free time between writing, community theater stage management, and traveling anywhere that has good wine. Tragically, this leaves no time to clean her house.
