Subject: Justin Timberlake Nudes!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…





YM‘s review

Yeah, SOOOOOO………I really liked this one! R. S. Grey is a REALLY talented at the witty banter with a dash of cute and a heap of sexiness!

I really liked Jo. The blogger aspect of the story added some current cultural relevance to this story. If you are thinking, yeah… Well, to the reader that has their finger on the current pulse of LIFE all around us, this was very well done. Bloggers are LIFE!(exhibit A) LOL…..but, I digress. To me this was very cute and well done. Sooooo, back to Jo. She was so real and cute that you could not help but instantly like her. And if you couldnt picture her a a real person with her struggles, then you clearly are missing the entire angle of this story. Enter sexy enter sexy entrepreneur with lots of mula. Yeah, again…..Seen it! Yet, Julian did not make me feel that way at ALL. He felt relevant, I dont know, it just worked trust me!
Their chemistry was AHMAZING! yada, yada, yada.(yeah, I know I shouldnt yada yada the best part) Trust me, she makes you work for it, but it is definitely worth it when you finally get there.
Alright here comes the “tough part”, why the 4 stars instead of 5 if I loved it so much……….for as FRESH and cutesy as the first 90% of the novel felt for me, there is a part where it kind of felt like I was watching Sweet Home Alabama…….I KNOW, I KNOW!! WHO DOESNT LOVE REESE WITHERSPOON AND PATRICK DEMPSEY!!……..yet……..uhm………….The Texas scenes felt stilted and devoid the sweetness and originality that was present throughout the majority of the story.

That being said, I still read 90% of this story with a GIANT SMILE on my face and laughing outloud! It was just a super cute story! Should really be a 4.5 (STOOPID goodreads for not letting me do that!)
Oh yeah and Lily and Dean are you kidding me?!!! Surely their story is next and I can NOT WAIT!! I mean, a restauranteur and a food blogger??!!! HELLLLOOOOOOOOOO?!!!! I like to pretend I am a foodie, so c’mon!

So, would I recommend this to my friends? Yeah. For sure! Why? It was adorable and sexy. The end 🙂

I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way, I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things… everyday.

I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors include Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I’m a comedy geek and love all things “funny”. Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.
