He’s neat, always on time, and a professed workaholic. I’m chaotic, always running late, and looking for more from life than just my job. Yet our mutual attraction is undeniable.
The last thing I expected after our first date was to have Simon show up at my office. The warm and funny guy I’d met was now gone, replaced by the cold and calculating man in an impeccable suit. While my professional future is in his hands, I can’t stop thinking about how his hands felt on my body.
Whatever had started between us can’t possibly happen now, but that’s easier said than done. Because the more I try not to think of his sexy smirk or delicious accent, the harder it is to stay away. And if our forbidden office kiss is any indication, his resolve is slipping too.
I’ve sworn I’d never fall for a man who puts his job first.
Too bad my heart isn’t listening.

Without Apology is a standalone romance that is unrelated to any previous titles by Aubrey Bondurant.
Peyton is a workaholic. Would she like to settle down and pop out a few kids… without doubt, but her life revolves around her job and it leaves little time to meet the perfect man. So when she bumps into a sexy Brit in her quiet corner of Texas she jumps at the chance of a date. Simon is hot and it looks that she could have met someone that could distract her from work… little does she know.
Simon’s only commitment in his life is his work. Lots of work and very little play, along with constant travelling around the US on different projects means the only meaningful relationship he has is with his PA Emma. After a mix-up with a bottle of Champagne he meets a woman that makes him smile. After one date he decides it’s time to make time in his schedule to get to know her better. A distraction from the latest acquisition and the stress that involves… and then someone unexpected turns up to his meeting.
Will two workaholics remain professional? Or will lines be blurred in the quest to find someone special?
So Aubrey has stepped away the brilliant “Something” series to give us a completely new story. I imagine it has been a super nervous journey. A journey where she has said goodbye to characters that we have been emotionally invested in with the hope that she can create a new world with characters we will also fall in love with. I have to say I was a tad nervous when I started it. Happily though I have finished it with a smile on my face, and with the usual anticipation for Aubrey’s next book.
Without Regret is a really good read. I loved both Peyton and Simon, as well as the other characters. The story really centres on the age old problem of finding the perfect work/life balance, and we join the journey as Peyton and Simon are forced to find a way to achieve this; and at times it isn’t straight forward. As I would expect from Aubrey, there are lots of laughs along the way but Aubrey has ensured that these characters stories has meat on the bone. There is a deeper background to both of them that really comes into play in the present, and so although this is an easy read, it isn’t a fluffy hearts and flower story.
Well done Aubrey! Another great book that is a must read for both your fans and anyone looking for a new 1-click author to fangirl over. Roll on Emma’s book!
