Lily, you predictable perv. I knew you’d open this email faster if I tempted you with a glimpse of JT’s “PP”. Well, put your pants back on and grab some bubbly because I have much better news to share.


As of tomorrow, I’ll be the new executive assistant at Lorena Lefray Designs. I am SO excited, but there’s one itty bitty problem: I won’t be Lorena’s assistant. I’ll be working for her older brother, Julian.

I know what you’re thinking- “But Jo, what’s the problem?

Google him. Now. He’s the man in the fitted navy suit whose face reminds you that there’s hope yet for this cruel, ugly world. Keep scrolling… Do you see those dimples? Yup. That’s the Julian Lefray I will be reporting to tomorrow morning.

Lord, help us all…


He didn’t even know the effect those dimples had on my girly parts. One word: Ijustgotpregnant. Yeah, that’s one word.

Clearly I have been living under a rock lately, because this was my first book by this absolutely fabulous author. I know, right? I’m shocked myself! If I could spank my own ass for not reading her sooner, I would. Better yet, I’d like Julia Lefray to do it for me because if you haven’t met this hero or have immediate plans to, you deserve a thorough spanking. Seriously. What’s the matter with you? Add this to your TBR immediately. Right this second. As a matter of fact, let me pause my review long enough for you to do just that….

Done? Right then. Moving on.

Black slacks— not cute. White button-down—not cute. Fitted black jacket— ew. Who thinks defined arms and a broad chest are attractive? No one.
He reached forward and gripped my arm just above my elbow as he leaned in to kiss my cheek. JESUS CHRIST. He smelled divine, like he’d spent the morning in the woods building me a log cabin. I hated him.

If you’re looking for a light-hearted, feel good, laugh out loud sort of romance, you’ve found your perfect match. This book was exactly what I needed. It was a little fluffy, a lot funny, with a dash of sexy, and entirely entertaining. I absolutely loved it. What did I love specifically? Pretty much everything. 

The heroine: Josephine “Jo” Keller

Jo moved to NYC with big dreams and small pockets from her small town in Texas. Trying to prove to everyone, including her parents who believed she was better off staying in Texas, wrong and make a name for herself in fashion is no easy feat. But she’s determined. Her blog has a great following and she’s gotten the invitation to a fashion event that all fashion bloggers dream about. It’s there that she gets the opportunity of a lifetime when she comes face to face with the gorgeous Julian Lefray, who happens to be the older brother to Lorena Lefray; owner of Lorena Lefray Designs and the company that Jo is dying to work for. Unfortunately, Lorena happens to be in rehab and Julian has taken over her duties. Fortunately, he’s more than happy to hire Jo to be his executive assistant as she’s more than qualified. Unfortunately, Jo happens to want to rip his clothes off whenever she looks at him and the feeling is very much mutual. Thus begins the golden banter and enough sexual frustration to make your ovaries implode.

The next time Dean invited me on his boat, I was going to come prepared with a box of condoms, a padlock, and a port-a-potty for the top deck. For fuck’s sake, I’d been two seconds away from reaching the pinnacle of nirvana, and White Wine Wendy couldn’t hold her pee for a minute longer. WE WERE ON A BOAT. Pee off the side dammit.

I. LOVED. THEIR. BANTER. So much. I didn’t even mind that I felt like my ovaries were turning an alarming shade of blue from all the unfulfilled sexual chemistry. It was just that good.

He leaned back against the futon and spread his arms out along the back.
Perfect. He looked edible.
“You can’t being me pizza late at night,” I said, trying tog et my brain back on topic. “Pepperoni is foreplay to me.”

I read this entire book in one sitting, completely unable to set it down for even a second. I had a goofy grin on my face the entire time reading it. Jo and Julian’s banter when they were denying themselves was fantastic. But when they finally gave into the inevitable? Pure. Gold.

Nope. No…If that hand moves any lower, I’m going to karate chop you.”
It moved lower and my body betrayed me. My stomach was like , “Meh, I can wait to eat,” and my girly parts were lie, “HELL YEAH, this is a great idea.” And that’s the story of how Julian banged me on the floor of his closet with his suits and ties judging us from above.

There was no crazy angst or misunderstandings. I adored both the characters and the story sucked me in right from the beginning. It was the perfect afternoon read and one I’d highly recommend to any lovers of humorous romance. As a matter of fact, the whole book unrolled in front of me like the perfect romantic comedy. I’m not sure why I haven’t discovered this author before now, but best believe she now has herself a bran new e-stalker (in the non-creepy way of course.)
