There’s a thin line between love and hate . . . and it cuts right through the middle of their office.
Bad boys? They run right over good girls like Georgina Keller.
But after a confidence-shattering breakup, she’s determined not to let anyone at her new workplace push her around—least of all the brooding creative director, a “bad boy of publishing” who’s made it clear she’s enemy #1.
Sebastian Quinn’s taste for fast cars, late nights, and beautiful women may have gotten him to the top of a leading New York magazine, but the reputation that made him is suddenly threatening to end his career.
Georgina can help Modern Man shed its bad reputation, but in order to do that, she’ll have to start at the top—and no amount of rakish charm or inconvenient attraction will distract her.
Because if Sebastian gets her right where he wants her, it means she’s going down.
This was my first Jessica Hawkins book, which is kind of shocking because I feel like I see this author everywhere. This author deserves to be everywhere because she is a fantastic storyteller. Right Where I Want You is an enemies to lovers, office romance.
This is a story about looking deeper than a pretty face to determine a person’s true character. Sebastian grew up ashamed of his heritage and grew to create personas of himself to hide it. However, when his persona comes to bite him in the ass, he has to let someone else in to clean it up. He just doesn’t expect her to not only clean up his image, but she puts things in perspective for him and helps him heal wounds he did not even know were there. I loved Sebastian and the safety he let Georgina take shelter in.
Sweet Georgina. This girl is the definition of girl boss. She kicks ass and takes names in her professional life, and everyone knows her as George. However, in her personal life, Georgina struggles to stand up for herself after her emotionally abusive ex-boyfriend left her confidence in tatters. She can’t let herself get involved with her current co-boss, but the more she gets to know him, the more she can’t resist him. She can’t get enough of his strong presence that enables her to find her own strength.
These two had quite the road, but it was a beautiful road. What started as an ugly chance encounter, ended in the perfect way that this story needed.

At the stadium’s concession stand, I took a tall stool, putting Georgina and I at eye level since she stood. “So, why didn’t you kiss François?” I asked. “Bad breath?”
She gasped into her hand. “My breath is fine.”
“I meant his. I’m sure yours is pure relish on a hotdog.”
She made a face. “Gross.”
“I happen to love relish,” I said. “But does François?”
Each time I said François with flourish, she flinched. I didn’t care. Something about him bugged me—I just couldn’t put my finger on it.
“We didn’t kiss because you interrupted us,” she pointed out.
“So? If I were in his position, and we both wanted that kiss, I wouldn’t let anyone stop me.”
“Frank and I are clicking,” she said, scowling. “There was even mention of spending time at his summerhouse.”
She coughed into her fist. “Boca Raton.”
The idea of Georgina spending a summer with him in Boca Raton was tragic enough that I almost smiled. I got the sense she was playing up the date. If it was so great, why wasn’t she sitting here with him? And why was I more relieved than smug about that? “Meanwhile, Justin and I will be clamming in Montauk.”
“You two should really just make it official and announce your love to the world.”
“But then I wouldn’t get to flirt with pretty girls.”
“For someone who pretends to have as much game as you,” she said, “I still haven’t seen you successfully flirt with any girls since I’ve known you.”
I smirked. “How do you know I’m not flirting with you right now?”
