Some people search their whole lives to find love. He just wants to avoid it.

Teddy Spenser spends his days selling design ideas to higher-ups, living or dying on each new pitch. Stodgy engineer types like Romeo Blue, his nemesis—if you can call someone who barely talks to you a nemesis—are a necessary evil. A cute necessary evil.

Working together is bad enough, but when their boss puts them both on a new high-stakes project, “working together” suddenly means:

¥ sitting uncomfortably close on the same plane

¥ staying in the same hotel room—with only one bed

¥ spending every waking minute together.

Turns out Mr. Starched Shirt has some hidden depths, and it’s getting harder to ignore the spark Teddy feels with every brush of their hands, with every knowing glance. He might not have been looking for this connection with Romeo, but will he ever be ready to let him go?


Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Spoiler Free Review

Teddy Spenser isn’t ready for love, especially not in Romeo Blue, his coworker and nemesis that he now must spend time with in order to succeed in a high-stakes project at work. But what will their feelings be like after having to spend hours with each other or sharing a hotel room – and bed? And what will happen when they both realize that they are connected in every way?

Teddy Spenser Isn’t Looking For Love was an absolutely adorable romance between Teddy and Romeo. I absolutely had a fun time reading about their enemies to lovers, office romance and the fact that the “there’s only one bed” trope had a part in the book was extremely fun to read.

I gave Teddy Spenser Isn’t Looking For Love 3.5 stars, enjoying Teddy and Romeo’s whirlwind of a romance. I am such a huge fan of enemies to lovers, office romance, and “there’s only one bed” tropes and found this adorable. I think that the writing could have been more developed and how everything was going very fast. The timeline seemed to speed by and I think that’s one of the reasons why I gave it 3.5 stars, simply because it was too fast. And while Teddy and Romeo were adorable together, I simply didn’t find that they had a lot of chemistry together.

You can tell that Teddy and Romeo started to truly enjoy each other’s company but found that the romantic aspect of their relationship was simply underdeveloped. They just didn’t seem to be super strong as a couple. Rather, their relationship seemed, in my opinion, to fit more as a friendship throughout the book.

Although this was Teddy Spenser Isn’t Looking For Love was fast-paced, it was still fun and interesting to read. Thank you again to NetGalley and Carina Adores for inviting me to read Teddy Spenser Isn’t Looking For Love and for providing me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
