This book tickled my funny bone at a time when I needed some laughter in my life. It had me in stitches for most of the book.
Imagine working for a hot guy who happens to be a workaholic and has no idea you exist until the day you tendered your resignation. You have a humongous crush on him but alas he doesn’t see you and even if he did, there is that rule of no fraternisation between employees. So what is a girl to do? While in a drunken stupor with the help of your friends, you write an anonymous email telling him you want to bang him. You can imagine how that went down.

Rome’s reaction to the email was downright hilarious. One moment he is chastising the anonymous perpetrator via email then next he is curious to know the persons identify.  His best friend eggs him on to respond to the email and there the exchange of emails began.

Rome attempts to figure out the person behind the emails was fun.  I thoroughly enjoyed the interactions between Rome and Peyton whether it be through their emails or face to face.

Peyton is fun loving and not afraid to speak her mind as Rome would discover. His employees saw him has an arrogant, sadistic and an egomaniac. They never had the privilege to meet the real Rome who happens to kind, caring, confident, tenacious and suffered from a tinge of insecurity. Sometimes he appeared a bit uptight. I did not like how he did not know of his employees. He never had a clue who Peyton was until the day she tendered her resignation. Despite this, I admired his work ethic. He is the type of person who is not afraid to go after what he wants.

The character that helped to make this a delightful read was Hunter, Rome’s best friend. He was like the annoying brother you cannot help but love. He is not afraid to show Rome the error of his ways. I enjoyed their interaction, which was tinged with humour.

I would love to some background information as it relates to the main characters. I knew Rome’s desire to be successful drove him to work hard. What I would love to know is what drove his desire for success and why he felt he had to be so hard on those in his employ.
As it relates to Peyton, I knew she wanted to be her own boss, but I was not privy to what motivated her.

He and Peyton were perfect together. She brought out the best in him. Helped him to loosen up and revealed a side of him few had the privilege of seeing.

Narration
This is my first time listening to the narrators. I enjoyed listening to the female narrator. I thought she captured both the male and female voices well. Her transitions between the voices were seamless. The voices for each character were distinct.

Unfortunately, my experience with the male narrator did not go so well. I was listening at a speed of 1.25x but he sounded like he was narrating at a higher speed. I disliked his female voice. His time was the same for all the females and it came off as nasal and whiny. He was not an easy listen.

Conclusion/Recommendation
I ended Love, Sincerely, Yours on a satisfying note. If you are looking for a fun and sexy listen that will have you laughing throughout the story, then get yourself a copy of Love, Sincerely, Yours

Dear Mister...**strike out** no, too formal.
Hey there sweet cheeks *strike out* no, too forward.

To whom it may concern,
Full disclosure; before we move forward with this email, I would like it to be known that I have consumed an adequate amount of alcoholic beverages to intoxicate myself tonight. Three margaritas, two shots, and one beer—because it was free.
I think it’s important to be open and honest with your co-workers, don’t you?
So here I am, being honest. Drunk but honest. Or just drunk with lust? You decide.
I like you so much it’s clouding my judgment and making me do things I never would sober. Like write this letter.
I have a hopeless, foolish, schoolgirl crush on you when you are the last person on earth I should be falling for. Did you know people around the office call you a sadist? An egomaniac. An insensitive, arrogant prick. Your bark is worse then your bite, and you don’t scare me. The fact is, I’d love that bite of yours to nip at my bare skin while we’re both wearing nothing but sheets.
For once I want you to look at me as more than one of your employees.
And as long as we're being honest, that navy blue suit you wear? With the crisp white shirt? It really makes me want to loosen your tie and show you who’s boss.
Love,
Sincerely,
Yours.
