#Review ~ Insufferable Proximity (Insufferable Proximity #1) by Z. Stefani

Someone is hell-bent on sabotaging Julian King.

Julian is a hot-shot lawyer and a natural born womanizer with an unnatural addiction to the opposite sex. He also happens to be the boss's son, which makes him a natural target. With a Rolodex filled with scorned women, a brother who loathes him and the competitors he defeated on his way to the top; there were plenty of people that would love to see him burn. But his money was on the person he despised most, his enemy Heaven Deville.

Heaven is an aggressive, ambitious, destructively-driven lawyer who HATES Julian King. The two stubborn lawyers were currently locked in a brutal battle for the coveted partnership position at the firm; and Heaven would do ANYTHING to prevent her arch rival from winning.

When Heaven goes too far Julian gives her two options- either he turns her in OR she has to willingly sign herself over to him for the next 30 days.

4.75 Stars

“I want you – every inch of you. I want you naked and on your knees before me, I want to stick my tongue in every orifice on your body, and I want to fuck you until you’re begging me to stop.” ~ Julian

Well, if that line doesn’t want to make you read this book, I don’t know what will. Holy smokes! Is it hot in here, or is it just me? Don’t you just love surfing Goodreads and accidentally find something you absolutely just loved? Yea, that happened to me with this book. It was just a blip on my radar, under my “on-the-fence-to-read” bookshelf, when I said, “what the hell, this looks good.” Picked it up, started reading and I couldn’t stop. In less than 24 hours, I was finished. According to Amazon, this is a 700+ page book. I flew through this and I just devoured it. Oh, yeah. I LOVED IT.

“He’s a cocky, egotistical, competitive, selfish, self-righteous egomaniac, and there’s nothing sexy about that.” ~ Heaven

Julian King is all Alpha male. With all that ego and arrogance, it’s no wonder he’s such a man-whore. It’s true. He openly admits to being a sex addict. There’s no way he’ll ever commit to one woman. Why would he? He’s the son of Ayden King, the head of a very prestigious law firm, plus, he’s sexy, rich, well endowed and his sexual escapes are the stuff of legends. He leaves a trail of broken hearts all over the city. He has many enemies. So it’s no surprise that someone is out to sabotage his career.

She was driving him insane, he couldn’t stand her, but he’d never wanted a woman in his life as badly as he wanted her right now.

Heaven Deville is a twenty-six year old career driven, virginal woman. She has no time for men; she never has. Raised in a brothel, she grew up leery of men, determined to have no man control her or her life. Even during college, she stayed away from the social scene and opted to focus on her career. She wants to be known for her wits and callousness in the courtroom and even dresses in ill-fitting clothes to drive home the point that she wants to be taken seriously. There’s no mistaking her for sleeping her way to the top. Because of this drive, she often comes out cold and unapproachable. She has no problem standing toe-to-toe with the arrogant Julian King.

He’d never been so giddy before, his head swarmed with visions of Ms. Deville on her knees, begging him to accept her apology and expressing her sorrow for being such a bitch all those years. Damn, he wanted to dominate her…

Julian and Heaven have never gotten along. For the past three years, they do nothing but fight. They’re the top two attorneys in their law firm and are constantly at each other’s throat. Heaven can’t stand Julian, so when the two are competing for a partnership position at the firm, she will do anything to win, including risk her beloved career as a lawyer. When Julian catches her in the act, he comes up with plan: Submit to him for thirty days or he’ll turn her in and ruin her career. So what choice does she have? None really, but she definitely won’t make it easy. Julian has got his work cut out to break the ice queen, Heaven.

Their fights in the office are epic. All that animosity between is just fuel to the fire. When Heaven signs the contract, she binds herself to Julian for one month. From one extreme to another, sparks fly between the two, the good and the bad. No one has ever gotten under Julian’s skin like Heaven. Even under his control, she continually finds way to disobey him. It’s safe to say, these two have combustible chemistry. It was HOT! I was definitely not disappointed with the many, MANY steamy scenes in this story. ;)

“Has he ever touched you?”
“No, I told you no one has.”
“Only me?” He asked and she nodded.
“Only you.”
“Say it.” He demanded.
“Only you’ve touched me, I swear.” She said, knowing it would help to sate him.
“I’m warning you, Heaven,” Julian bent his head down, his lips inches from hers, “it better stay that way.” He kissed her, and began moving his hips again; he pumped in and out of her body faster, forcing her back to the seat.

I just LOVED how possessive Julian became of Heaven. Since he is obviously her first, he feels this overwhelming need to protect and possess her. I don’t know what it is about possessive men, but I find it utterly sexy. So what happens when their contract is up, when he will no longer have any say in what Heaven does? Will Julian go back to his man-whore days? How would he feel when Heaven starts to see other men?

Of course the story is predictable, but I didn’t care. I just LOVED it. However, there are two reasons why I didn’t give it the full five stars: One: The way Heaven lost her v-card was a little heartbreaking. She waited all this time, and to lose it like that, well…that was definitely not the way to go, Julian. Two: It ended too abruptly. I would’ve loved an epilogue or something. Either way, I still loved everything else about it. Highly recommend for those looking for a long, steamy read with a sexy, possessive Alpha male Hero.
