~ Synopsis ~  

Subject: You’re a flippin’ idiot

Good morning my dear, naive friend,

I hope you’re enjoying a breakfast of regret and sorrow.


Because you sent me to work for Dean Harper, aka a control freak in a tailor-made suit. Sure he owns the trendiest restaurants in NYC, but c'mon Jo, his ego makes Kanye West look like the Dalai Lama.

He's the type of guy that only hears the word “no” when it's followed by “don’t stop.”

Working for Dean Harper would be like selling my soul to the devil…and before you say anything, I don’t care if the devil has punch-you-in-the-gut brown eyes and an ass to match. My soul isn’t for sale.

Regretfully yours,

The Allure of Dean Harper is a full-length standalone romance with overlapping characters from The Allure of Julian Lefray. Both books can be read separately. Chronologically, The Allure of Julian Lefray happens first.

4.5 Stars 

You met these characters in the first book-The Allure of Julian LeFray. Lily is Jo's best friend and Dean is Julian's best friend. Are you seeing how this could go wrong?!

Lily has finally made the move from Texas to NY to be live with Jo. She's yet to find a job that pays so she's still doing the food blogger thing. She put her application in for a job at Provisions and never anticipated to get a call but she did on a night where they are short staffed and in need of help that night. She's bartending and bringing in more money than the restaurant/bar ever has before and who shows up to knock her down a few pegs-none other than Dean Harper and her boss-only she doesn't know who he is. He also fires her right there on the spot!

Dean, a workaholic, who is constantly opening up new and different kinds of restaurants, is one of the wealthiest bachelors NY has to offer. He doesn't like distractions and thinks love only gets in the way of his success.  He likes the way he lives and Lily is great at being a disruption in his life only he doesn't think so at the time.

These two are just like Jo said they'd be: oil and water-and we know those 2 don't mix well together. After the firing, Dean is opening up a new restaurant and decides to bring Lily on as a consultant for the menu, drinks, and overall ambiance of the place. She constantly challenges him and he is constantly at wits end not knowing how to keep her in check. They're both opinionated and think they both need to get the last word in on when disagreeing with each other-which happens A Lot!!

If you read Julian's book then you need to read this book as well. It's funny, light hearted and the chemistry between Lily and Dean is an explosion waiting to happen. Plus you get more of Jo and Julian! Plus it's written in dual POV which I love because you get to see what the other is thinking.

I love RS Grey's books and this one did not disappoint!

~ 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 are 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.

5 mind blowing ugly cry stars

WARNING: If you haven't read Away yet please don't read any further.  You must read Away before this book.  Scroll down at your own risk.

This book was really, really hard for me to read.  If you've read Away you know why.  This book is Jase's POV of the important, fun loving scenes in Away (no the whole book isn't rewritten.). I freaking loved this book and took my time reading it because I was afraid to get to the end.  I didn't want to live through it all again, but I did want too.  I had to know what Jase was thinking and feeling.  I had to make sure my man got the ending he deserved!!! BA did not disappoint me.

I really am happy BA Wolfe decided to write this novella. Some people may not read it, but they will be missing out on an amazing, emotional, touching story.  Take the chance to read this book. You will be a better person for it.  It will make you want to spend more time with your loved ones.  We never know when the end is near.

It really showed you that Jase had his happy ending.  He died knowing what love was and that he was loved in return.  He was taught what it was to live again.  He wasn't living until Cassie came into his life.  He lived every day she was there with more happiness than most do.  (As I cry writing this.)

Reading this emotional book makes you understand that life doesn't always end in a fairy tale, but that doesn't mean that it wasn't a fairy tale until the tragedy hit.  Jase had his Fairy Tale and he made the most of the time they had together.

~ Excerpt ~ 

She moaned loudly, her hands splaying across my shoulders. "You make me so happy. I hope you know that. Thank you for giving yourself to me."
"Thank you for letting me, for wanting me." No one had ever wanted me like she did.
She held my cheeks and searched my face. "I'll never not want you, Jase. That's impossible."
I knew exactly how she felt.
Without another word, she sat up and playfully pushed my chest, wanting me back on the pillow. So I went with it and fell back as she climbed over me, a leg on either side.
"So . . ." Her fingers coiled around the hem of my shirt, my heart thumping rapidly. "Do you remember when you said that I was yours?"
I grinned. "I remember."
A sexy smirk splashed across her face. "I might be yours, but do you know what else that means?"
I folded an arm behind my head, while my other hand caressed her bare leg. "No, sweetheart. What does it mean?"
Her body inched lower until our chests were touching and our heartbeats matched.
Placing her mouth directly over mine, she whispered, "Mine, Jase. You're all mine, cowboy."
I palmed the back of her head and growled, crashing my lips to hers, taking every ounce of Cassie I could. I was hers and she was mine and there was nothing that would ever change that. Even if tragedy ever struck down the road, I’d always still be a chapter in her life. One she’d never forget. No one could ever take that away from either of us.
