So glad I stumbled onto this book!
Just when I thought I couldn’t love this book any more, I dared to read the acknowledgements and that is when I cried. Tracey Livesay shared her personal reasons for writing Love on my Mind and it is truly heart warming. I won’t spoil that special two pages for future readers, but it really adds a connection between writer and reader.
In Love on my Mind, we see the all too common struggle women face in the corporate world. Chelsea sacrificed a lot of her personal time and needs to keep her career trajectory on the right path. While Chelsea may have felt that a corner office in a downtown LA high-rise would finally fulfill her, she doesn’t recognize that she is already enough on her own. She’s in position for promotion in her company, and is held back at the last minute for a final “project”.
Chelsea should’ve had her promotion and a bag, but she couldn’t have known how much better this would be for her.
The lovable but socially challenged Adam isn’t aware that he’s been set up by his best friend to work with Chelsea. He’s a tech-geek that has done amazing things in computer science, but the world only cares about his looks. Sure, he’s advancing society’s gadgets, but do you know if he wears boxers or briefs? He doesn’t understand people and their motivations. Insert Chelsea.
Chelsea knew she needed to become friendly with Adam to get him camera-ready as her final account before promotion. She didn’t intend their surprise meeting and forced proximity. Don’t we all love a force-proximity romance? Chelsea manages to ease the anxiety building up in Adam surrounding his new product launch. What unfolds is a panty-melting read!
Thank you, Tracey Livesay, for bringing Love on my Mind to the Apollyon 2022 event. It was by chance that I found your table and picked through your back list. I cannot wait to catch up on all of your romances and work my way up to American Royals. The cover alone is breathtaking!
