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...


**Received this book from the author in exchange for a review**
4.5/5 Stars!

I've read many (if not all) books by R.S. Grey. I find that as the years progress, her characters get older. Not that it bothers me all that much, but I like characters in their early-mid twenties. But that's just me. Anyways, I love how beautiful her covers are and I kind of really just want to buy them all and display them all over my bookshelf and brag. The best thing about these covers is that they have an even better story inside them.

"Julian, less play-flirting. More snapping,"
He stared straight at me with his eyes full of questions and his lips full of unspoken desire.
"Who said anything about play?" he finally asked.
We were entering dangerous territory." 

To me, Jo had her insecure moments when it came to anything dealing with public events as a fashion blogger, and of course...when it came to Julian. But that's all expected. A-guy-like-him-can't-end-up-with-a-girl-like-her cliche. Jo is awesome however, and I love who she is as a person. She's great at what she does, and her blog is very successful; something that I hope will happen to me someday. As a young woman like her, she's accomplished so much...
...and that's what Julian likes about her. 

It's also one of the reasons he hires her to be his assistant while his sister is recovering in rehab.
The two have unbelievable chemistry and it's nothing like your simple boss/assistant relationship. I'd recommend this book for anyone looking for a light read. Perfect book for sitting on the porch or the beach. 

"Because you're very funny," I whispered. 
"And you're very nice for taking care of me while I was drunk."
"You've got a cute butt."
"And I love you."
"I love you too," he said. |

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.
