We Shouldn’t by Vi Keeland

We Shouldn’t by Vi Keeland is filled with everything from snort laughs to disappointed head shakes at both characters to hotness to tears of sympathy to pure love!


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 the Audi parked in front of me, which happened to be the same make and model as mine.

Annoyed, I decided to regift my ticket to the car that had evaded a fine. Chances were, the owner would pay it and be none the wiser.

Except, I accidentally broke the windshield wiper while slipping the ticket onto the car's window.

Seriously, my day couldn't get any worse.

Things started to perk up when I ran into a gorgeous man in the elevator. We had one of those brief moments that only happened in movies.

You know the deal...your body lights up, fireworks go off, and the air around you crackles with electricity.

His heated stare left me flushed when I stepped off the elevator.

Maybe things here wouldn't be so bad after all.

Or so I thought.

Until I walked into my new boss's office and met my competition.

The gorgeous man from the elevator was now my nemesis. His heated stare wasn't because of any mutual attraction. It was because he'd seen me vandalize his car. And now he couldn't wait to annihilate his rival.

There's a fine line between love and hate--and we shouldn't cross it.

We shouldn't--but straddling that line could be so much fun.

Ceej’s Review:

We Shouldn’t is yet another winner for me by Vi Keeland.  This book is filled with snort laughs, giggles, belly laughs, disappointed head shakes at both characters, hotness, sighs of contentment, tears of sympathy, and pure love.

I swear, the more I learned about Bennett, it was like Ms. Keeland held up an emotional mirror to me.  His reasoning for holding back from Annalise was so like my own that I could have predicted it.  Many of his actions were like my own that it was like déjà vu.  As I read, I was tempted to message Ms. Keeland and ask if she knew me!  I felt his pain just as I felt his frustration.  I adore his relationship with one special person in his life.  It really endeared me to him even more.

As for Annalise, from the beginning, she made me laugh.  Her antics cracked me up!  But I really loved her heart.  She’s such a genuine person and I had such high hopes that she’d be the one to win their competition even though I loved Bennett, too.  She gave me the feeling of being the underdog and I was cheering her along the way.  Even in her personal life, I wanted her to get what she deserved and to show a certain douchebag that she was living a better life.

The twist in this story surprised me.  I really enjoyed every minute!  Thank you, Ms. Keeland, for yet another wonderful story!  Her work is now one of my addictions and she is my book-crack dealer.  LOL.  And once again, she has created a hero that I relate to more than the heroine.  I loved Bennett!  And I loved Annalise!
