~ Synopsis ~

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...

4.5 Stars 

This book starts out with Josephine (Jo) who has just moved from Texas to NYC and is looking for a job since being a fashion blogger isn't paying the bills. She's up to her eyeballs and then some with her student loans and her rent payment, her parents think she's making a huge mistake of moving to NY and she's simply trying to prove everyone wrong from her small town.

She's received an invitation to the years hottest event and of course when she gets up to the front of the line to give them her name it isn't on the list. She's asked to step aside and wait for it to get sorted out. Meanwhile she's made eye contact with a hottie who is none other than Julian Lefray and then loses track of him while she's waiting. Her name is finally found on the list thanks to a misspelling of her name.

They eventually meet up again and she learns that he is taking over for his sister while she's 'ill' and lets him know that she applied for the position as an assistant with Lorena Lefray Designs. He's intrigued with her and when he gets home he looks over her resume and looks up her blog 'What Jo Wore' and knows he has to interview her.

She gets the job as his assistant while she somehow has to try to keep their relationship strictly professional even though they are both fighting their attraction to each other. She can't lose the job since she's so far in debt and doesn't want to admit to her parents they may have been right and he's afraid she'll quit if he pursues her.

Dean is Julian's best friend from college who is in the restaurant business who finally sets Julian straight about his feelings for Jo and Lily is Jo's best friend from home who eventually moves to NY and has her own blog about food--can you smell a book 2 about these two cooking??

This book is told from a dual POV and I loved knowing what they were both thinking. It was a very light hearted read as well as funny. If you haven't read any of her books before I would recommend all of them. Can't wait to see what she has in store for us next!

~ Author Bio ~ 

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.
