[Blog Tour * Reviews] UNPROFESSIONAL by J.D. Hawkins @FuckYeaHawkins



JD Hawkins
Release Date: March 22nd
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Designer: Letitia Hasser from RBA Designs
Model: Christian Hogue


What happens when the internet's favorite playboy falls in love?
I have the best job in the world. Date beautiful women and write about it. 
But I want to take it to the next level: instead of writing about my experiences make it into an online reality show. 
But here is the catch. My boss wants me to share the show with a woman co-host. And he wants that woman to be my best friend and co-worker, Margo. 
I’ll date beautiful women and she’ll date hot men. Sounds fair enough.
So now I have to watch her fake date hot men. I used to love going home with a different woman every night, but suddenly this isn’t as fun. Seeing Margo with anyone else is driving me crazy. 
And the more time I spend with her working on the show, the less I want to keep our relationship in the friends’ zone. And the harder it is to stop myself from imagining her bent over the copier.

Things are about to get unprofessional.

4 of 5 stars

This is my kind of unprofessional. I mean what woman wouldn't...He's your best friend, your work place buddy, and clearly you get along. Just because you've been fighting the attraction since the first time you saw him...(and that's a memory to never forget)
Never take into account that you have been lusting after him for 8 years. Ignore the fact that occasionally it isn't one sided. And always forget that crazy chemistry and allure that is between you. I'm saying this as an impartial third party, it would be unprofessional otherwise. (insert devilish winky face)
In other words, sounds like the best damn drunken decision you could ever make or the worst. You will just have to figure out which one.
Fun characters and a ridiculously entertaining storyline will have you smitten. It has nothing to do with the wild playboy oozing charm and sex or the fun, sassy friend who holds a big place in his life.

This review of Unprofessional by JD Hawkins is for The Sweet Spot Sisterhood Blog. It was really good. I give it 4 stars. It is a friends to lovers style romance. It was a cute afternoon read. Unprofessional is the story of Owen and Margo. They work for TrendBlend a multimedia company. They have been best friends since college. Owen pitch to his boss finally sticks and now he gets to date and rate for an online reality dating show. It's a hit, but they want a female cohost too. Yep you guessed it. They want Margo who shot to fame after her drunk kitten video went viral. She agrees and again the show is a hit, but then she is forced to make a huge decision. One that could impact her career and friendship. You will have to read to find out what happens. You won't be disappointed.

“Thank god you live on the ground floor,” I say, as I rummage for her keys in her bag with one hand while keeping her from falling with the other. It’s not that I haven’t been to Margo’s place before, but when we hang out it’s usually at work functions or the occasional bar, and at the moment I can’t shake the feeling that I’m intruding a little.

“You know, you’re really fucking hot,” she slurs, giggling. My cock stirs at the brush of her lips so close to my neck, her warm breath against my skin. I have to shake it off.
“And you’re really fucking drunk,” I reply with a forced laugh, as the key finally catches and I kick the door open.
“No…I mean it,” she says as I step into her apartment, still holding her in my arms. “You’re like…the most beautiful man.”
“That’s very sweet of you,” I say, as I open a few wrong doors (closet, bathroom) until I find her bedroom. I walk in and lay her down on the bed, then pull away, setting her bag on the night table. “You should probably just rest a bit, let it pass.” I unlace her boots and ease them off gently, setting them on the floor before straightening up to go. This feels familiar, although I haven’t carried a too-drunk Margo home from a party and put her to bed since our undergrad years. “You need anything? Water, or—”
“Yeah.” Margo smiles.
Instead of answering, she mischievously beckons me closer. I look at her, dress rolling up around her thighs, twisting her body up in the sheets, my imagination starting to whirl a little.
“Come here!” she yelps impatiently.
This could mean trouble—the problem is, I like trouble. I groan and go nearer to the bed.
“Closer,” she giggles, and I’m taken with the smile, the way she grinds into the bed…
Her hand pulls on my shirt, her smile goes and instead her mouth is open now, weakened like she’s preparing to kiss me. I could so easily fall into her here, so easily bring my mouth onto hers, put my own hands under her clothes. I can almost taste her, appetite stirring…
Except being a real man doesn’t just mean knowing when to make a move, it also means knowing when you shouldn’t.
“Nice try,” I say, pulling back.
Margo laughs and pounds her fists onto the bed with disappointment.
“But I need to see what’s under your shirt. You still got those Grand Canyon abs, I bet.”
“Ok. That’s my cue to go,” I say, half-out the door. “See you tomorrow.”
“No! Come on! Please! I remember the view was fucking amazing. Just a little peek. A tiny little peek for old time’s sake. Come on, Owen! Don’t be an asshole. You know you want to show it off.”
I look back at her, hand on the doorknob, and find myself laughing.
“Happy now?” I say, pulling up my shirt a little way.
Margo screams and falls back onto her pillows laughing.
“I knew it! Just as perfect as that night you got locked out of the girl’s dorm,” she says, as I close the door and leave.
When I get back to my car, I’m still smiling.
