The Hot Shot by C.N. Marie writing as Sophia Nixs

Sebastian hides in the closet to fit into corporate culture until he's faced with a relationship he just can't ignore... in The Hot Shot

From the blurb:


I wanted to be the best; that was always the goal, and getting out from under my tyrant of a boss and setting up a business with my brother was the way I achieved that.
But, in order to maintain the advantage, I have to network. Unfortunately, these events are less than the social highlight I imagined them to be but, when I ditch the expected fiery redheaded woman for a night of passion with someone completely unexpected, sparks fly.
It’s a one-off, or that’s what I tell myself.
An indulgence I can’t be allowed if I want to succeed. And I do. I will.


I’m struggling. That’s how these things always start, right?
Things are hard and someone rushes in to my rescue and magically fixes every problem I’ve ever had with nothing more than a click of their fingers. Unfortunately, I live in the real world where you have to fix problems yourself, which is how I found myself signing a contract with one of the most renowned advertising companies in the area.
What I wasn’t expecting, was the man I had a one-night stand with to be my new manager, and it’s more than clear the rest of the world doesn’t know what I do about him.

There are more than hearts on the line in this whirlwind romance. Will Sebastian give in to his indulgence and fight for his man? Or will Walker’s dreams crumble alongside the love he thought he had?

Heather's Review:

I absolutely loved Walker and his genuine feelings and emotions regarding finding a relationship with Sebastian and I ached for Sebastian as he went for his goals and hid in the closet to not rock the boat in a toxic workplace...

Their relationship started out quite steamy and hot, but I found that I was wanting more from their intimacy and life sharing as the book progressed and I got confused occasionally about who was the more dominant person in the relationship and how that evolved as well.

I'm looking forward to seeing more from this world and hope that some of the characters we met here will get stories of their own, particularly Hadrian and Jace!
