Piece of Work by Staci Hart
Review: I had a great time reading Piece of Work by Staci Hart! First lets just stare at that beautiful cover, probably some of the best artwork I have seen… Also, one of the best taglines that I have heard in a long time that always has me chuckling. The tagline begin, “Marble isn’t the only thing that’s hard at this museum.” Just love it.
I had a great time reading about Rin and slowly liking her more and more as the story went on. I also really liked that I didn’t instantly like Rin, not that there’s anything wrong with her ( when you meet someone new, you have to get to know them first before liking them). But with a lot of her challenges she faced at the beginning of the novel, I could really relate to her. I think it really had to do with not knowing or having the clothes that your suppose to have for professional work (or anything work related). I can really connect with this because I just have lazy college clothes and shoes, with nothing that is ready for the work force and am completely confused how to go about getting some.
Rin’s support group was one of the best I have read in awhile. Her group of (3) friends were so nice and very much lovable. I hope with all the slight hinting and foreshadowing about some of them, that we will be seeing more of them in a future book for each of them… And of course hear more about this Red Lipstick Coalition (which is a great name for a series). Also where can I get my own Boss Bitch lipstick??
The changing point of view, switching between Rin and Court was nice to read and getting an insight to what they are both thinking about during the same moments. Although it felt like that the book was all about Court and his point of view instead of Rin too. Which was a lot like the end of the plot, everything was about Court. And can I just say that Court was so dumb at the end of the novel, I mean really were you not listening?? Even though he overshadowed Rin a lot in the end of the book, I was happy that it did not take away from Rin and her character or development. All in all, I had so much fun reading this book and cannot not wait to get my hands on more Staci Hart books.
Wishing I could pull an Amelia Earhart and disappear.
“I just… I hate that I feel like I have to do this. Like I’m pretending to be someone I’m not.”
She frowned, folding her arms across her chest. “You’re not pretending to be someone your not. You’re becoming who you want to be.”
“Why can’t I just be happy with who I am?”
“For the same reason that none of us are happy with who we are. I mean, we are happy, but we want to be more. Every single one of us. And there’s not a goddamn thing wrong with wanting more.”
I didn’t think I wanted to hide anymore. I wanted to be more.
“Gladly,” I said cheerily and turned on my fancy-ass heel, sweeping out of the room and twirling on those haters like Beyoncé.
Would I? Reread this book? I think so, it was fun. Tell others to read Piece of Work? Heck yes! It was a really fun read.

Summary: 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.
