Piece of Work - Staci Hart


Staci Hart - a woman I love and adore, and whose writing I'll probably always devour. 
- quote by... me, Sam Destiny

I got Piece of Work as an ARC (I'll admit I was practically begging Staci to give me one anyway...) and read it because... well, she's epic and I knew she was a safe bet when it came to my reading funk. 

Anyway, why don't we start out with the blurb?

Blurb:

Marble isn’t the only thing that’s hard at this museum.

His body is as chiseled as Adonis. His lips are as sculpted as David. And his ego is the size of the Guggenheim.

You know the type—wolfish smile and the gravity of a black hole. The kind of man who sucks all the air from the room the second he enters it. My cocky boss thinks this internship was wasted on me, and he doesn’t hesitate to let me know.

But he’s wrong, and I’m going to prove it to him. If I can stay away from his devil lips, that is. Lips that cut me down and kiss me in the same breath, leaving me certain he’s on a mission to ruin my life.

And maybe my heart.

Sam's (mine) review:

Usually, this would be the part where I start to tell you how much I loved the male lead, but I don't want to do that this time around because... guys, you are going to LOVE Rin. She's incredible and, sweet, and she reminded me of myself in a lot of ways (only I'm less smart. 🤣) because there's this thing, that thing that makes her suddenly more confident, stronger, and more self-assured. It makes Rin the best version of herself, and I so totally can relate to that because hell, there are days when I'm wearing my favorite pair of heels just because it makes me stand taller (literally and figuratively), and I need that.

Okay, now that we got this out of the way, let me talk about Court. What can I possibly say about Court that would grasp the epicness he is? The thing about Staci Hart's heroes and heroines is that they could be you and me. Real. Hurt. Flawed. And Court is perfectly flawed. There were enough moments where I wanted to freaking shake him so he'd come to his senses, but well, I couldn't, and he managed by himself anyway. 

The love between those two, the tension... man, it's hot. And what I love is how he loves her mind, her brilliance, and can acknowledge that, too.

Bonus? I felt bright because I knew a lot of the art Staci talked about. And also, Italy... How can you not love Italy? Don't know why I'm starting with Italy now when this is set in the US? 
Well, easy. Grab the book as soon as it's out on May 17th... 

Until then put it on your TBR:
