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.
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…
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.

I’m a sucker for R.S. Grey’s stories! Since I’ve read Scoring Wilder I was sold!
I love when a book makes me smile, and this story put me in a happy mood.
So, what for us this time?
Let’s get a glimpse of the fashion world, into the eyes of a blogger : Josephine Keller and her relationship with her hot boss, Julian Lefray.
Josephine is a famous fashion blogger struggling with the reality; she follows her dream to work in fashion but she has loans and lot of bills to pay.
I really loved her; she’s such a sweetheart but knows when to bite, (if she has to), witty, funny and so endearing. She’s trying to face with her problems, dealing with her blog and her new work: being the assistant of Julian, brother of a famous fashion designer: Lorena Lefray.
She didn’t have the approuval of her parents about leaving her home and working in this field.
Hopefully she had her best friend Lily, who was here to cheer her up, to give her strength to believe in her dreams.
Oh my Julian … Sigh … SWOON … This character is nothing expected, caught me totally off guard!
Of course he’s sexy and handsome, but there’s so much more. Behind his good looks and his famous dimples who make any women swooning and drooling, he was searching for more and his encounter with Josephine, put things in perspective. He was helping his sister, while she was in rehab; family is important to him and felt guilty to be away from her.
Processing to clean up his sister’s company, he had to deal with her « heartless » mother, his more than friendly feelings for Josephine, and was a little bit confused; in a short time, she took a huge place in his life and in his heart.
Having his POV was just priceless, funny, and his insecurities … just so endearing!
How can I say about the first time these two meet? It made me smile. From that moment, they clicked, and meet again.Josephine was very bold at that time to give herself an ever better chance to work in Lorena’s company.
It was risky to be hired as Julian’s assistant, both were playing with fire, but with her knowledge of the fashion world, her smart, fizzy, and refreshing personality were strong and valuable assets.
Attraction was obvious, and above all, they tried to maintain a sense of professionalism, became friends, with a lot of teasing and innuendos.
They made a great team out there, so natural together, like they always knew each other.
Crossing the line was too tempting. But when they did, oh la la. Can I say that it was more than getting hot in here? I needed to refresh myself here!
This story was the great blend of sexy, hilarious, sweet and gracefulness.I really have an awesome read, it was such a breath a fresh air!
I was entertained from the beginning to the end, reading about this two fantastic characters, surrounded by a lot of wonderful others who totally deserved to have their stories!
Otherwise, the reading was so fluid, the characters classy , but not conceited. I was charmed by Julian of course but Josephine was my hero here, independent and admirable woman. So high five for this romantic comedy, and I’m still smiling!
