She’s the storm he never saw coming
Breezy by Kelsie Rae
Breezy comes from a place without hurricanes, but that never stopped her from blowing in and causing chaos wherever she goes. She’s feisty, energetic, and unafraid of speaking her mind. She’s also a hot mess in need of a job.
Derrick’s used to dealing with all types of people. After all, he owns his own business. But when he meets Breezy, she impacts him harder than any storm ever could. Too bad even the gorgeous new girl in HR can’t make him break his one rule: no dating employees. Ever.
There’s just one problem. Breezy’s never been good at following directions, and her boss isn’t the only one with a serious office crush. Can the new girl convince him to throw caution to the wind?

Fly Girl’s Review:
I’ve read Kelsie’s first book Liv, and was really impressed with her talent. So when I had a chance to read this one, I jumped on it. Her story telling in the first book wasn’t a fluke, she’s got talent. This book is listed as a stand alone, but I think it makes it more dynamic if you’ve red Liv first as Bree’s character is first introduced in that novel. Also, this was a fast read, maybe 3 hours for me and is a sweet-contemporary romance. I call it sweet because there are no sex scenes in it, but they do have sex. I know confusing but when you read one I call “sweet” you’ll know what I mean.
To the book now. Bree does the unthinkable and falls for the boss. But in good form, the boss doesn’t get involved with the help, so Bree works up a plan to blow into his life and make him see what he is giving up with his “stupid” rules about office relationships. Their relationship has quite a hurdle that almost tanks the company but since they both have the ability to admit they were wrong you get your HEA at the end.
Bree is a “very strong” character. I feel like we say that way too often in our reviews, but here’s what makes it so for Bree. She doesn’t have a brain filter so she just says things without thinking about the consequences and she doesn’t apologize for it, she accepts that about herself. In this day and age it takes a strong person to be in their 20’s and not only know who they are, but be able to understand and accept their faults. The word “Hurricane” suits her personality well. Kelsie has a way of distinguishing Bree’s personality throughout the book without any hesitation. She also differentiates Bree’s strong character from Liv’s. Bree’s is internal, and Liv’s is situational. That’s one of the reasons I think Kelsie Rae is a rising star in the romance community. Let’s see if she can keep it up in the next release Jude coming this fall.
I’m only giving this a 3.5 of 5 because I felt there was confusion when the story got to them having sex. I didn’t need a sex scene, but there wasn’t even any build up, and the first time I wasn’t even sure they had sex. Also, the brunch scene feels like it was a means to rushing the relationship and it felt very awkward. I know this is only her second book and I think the story is great and she carried the elements of Bree from the first book, Liv, to this story. She’s got a lot of talent and she will get better with a few more novels behind her. I still highly recommend Kelsie’s book to anyone. She is an awesome up and coming author that I see great things from in the future.

Kelsie prides herself on writing straight from her own heart, which is how she fell into sweet contemporary romance. She’s a sucker for a love story with all the feels. When she’s not chasing words for her next book, you will probably find her reading or, more likely, playing with her “monsters”.
She adores chocolate, photography, baking, chick flicks, and running. And now that she’s actively pursuing her writing dreams, she’s set her sights on someday finding the self-discipline to not eat an entire batch of cookies in one sitting.
