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...

I became of R.S. Grey's awesomeness when I read her other book, The Duet. There I knew there was something special about this author. The way she makes her females not annoying and her males swoon worthy was two pluses in my book. The moment I saw the cover of this, I knew I was going to be lured into loving it. 

Josephine Keller is us. And by us, I mean she is a freshly graduated student trying to follow her dreams. Those dreams include moving to New York City and working in fashion. She has impecable style and quirky wit that gives her fashion blog some following. Of course, not everything is rainbows. She has what most college students leave school with besides a degree and will to succeed; DEBT! She needs a job stat or she is forced to hightail it back to her small Texas hometown.

Then there is businessman, Julian Lefray. A name that rolls off your tongue and a man that would more than likely have you wanting to use that tongue in many places. With his sister Lorena "indisposed", he steps in to remodel his sister's fashion company and that means cleaning house. Of course, he must hire the incredible, sexy girl he met at a fashion gala. Right? 

This book delivers on everything that I look for in romantic comedies. I found myself smiling that the cuteness that Josephine and Julian provided. What I also loved about this was the build up. Sometimes people turn up the heat too early and things fizzle out. With this, the burn was immediate but it simmered and by the end, things were boiling over in the best way.

My biggest thing about this whole book, is that I want more! A friend of mine who I was reading this with didn't like the ending. I thought it was a great set up in case the author wants to continue this into a series (Which I'm hoping she's doing RIGHT NOW). 

If you're looking for a cute easy read that has romance, hilarious situations and character chemistry out the ass, then this is the book you're needing.
