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.

I GOT A JOB!

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…
XO,
Jo

♥ my review ♥

You know what I really liked about this book? It doesn’t pretend to be something else other than a sweet, funny, and light read. And for that, I give this one 4 stars!

I really enjoyed the characters. On paper, they weren’t the type of characters I would ever thought of enjoying reading about but RS Grey made Jo totally lovable and relatable. And Julian is probably her sweetest hero yet. 

Jo is someone who has big dreams for herself and she’s desperate to get out of the small town she grew up in. Nobody understand her dreams. They were labeled as silly and frivolous by her parents. She likes fashion and wants to make it in the fashion industry, so she worked had to making her dreams happen. Her blog is her life and it was great how the author incorporated her blogging into the story.

Apart from Jo, I also liked Julian’s character. I was expecting a total jerk that all the women just fall for but I was wrong. Julian wasn’t an irresponsible manwhore. He’s actually sweet and loyal. He was there for his sister. He protected her and their relationship was another thing that I really liked reading about. His one flaw was that he’s a workaholic who doesn’t allow himself to have fun and relax, which made Jo perfect for him. 

There were a few plot contrivances that were a bit on the cheesy side but I gave it a pass because it was still fun to read and it worked out well in the end. Plus, this book really made me laugh and it’s been long time since a book has done that for me. Seriously, some of the scenes in this book were hilarious. I finished the book with a big goofy smile on my face. Really, what more could I ask for? 

Overall, the humor, the obvious connection between the hero and the heroine, the secondary characters and the easy writing of RS Grey made this book a winner for me. I liked how this sets up Dean and Lily’s book, which I think is going to be a riot considering Lily is a firecracker and Dean is…well, you just have to meet Dean to know what I’m talking about.
