The girl code “Chicks before d*cks” should include that no friend can steal another friend’s boyfriend—or marry them.
When Ashton Carter's "good idea at the time" revenge plan lands her in hot water, she never expected to see her ex again—especially in court. A few thousand dollars in damages later, she snags a job as a phone sex operator and seeks out a roommate to help fund her "stay out of jail" expenses. Having a roommate should’ve been helpful—except when they turn out to be the hot, yet douchebag mechanic working on her car.
When Ashton learns that her new roommate has been the sexy phone sex caller, lines begin to blur between real life and fantasy. It was supposed to be a no-strings-attached situation; neither of them were ready for love again. When a surprise visit from an ex shakes their forming foundation with an ultimatum, Ashton is forced to face the truth of her feelings and make a choice. With her budding relationship and livelihood at stake, Ashton has to untangle the lines of reality and fantasy in a last ditch effort to protect her heart.

I’m a little late in reviewing this book because I am currently in a reading slump. Also, when I was in that said slump, it took me a while to get into the book.
That said, when the book clicked for me, it was a fairly quick read! I love the funny, lighthearted read! Also, the unique job Ashton has! I mean, a phone sex operator? I haven’t read that one before!
I am also a fan of closed proximity romance AND opposites attract and Withholding Nothing had it in spades! It was just up my alley! Also, a hot mechanic? YES PLEASE!
This is the first book by Victoria Bright that I read and this won’t be my last! I am going to be checking her backlist!
