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…
XO,
Jo

what i liked
R.S. Grey is a romcom queen. And while I may not want to reread all of her books, I have enjoyed them all and read them all super quickly.  First of all, Jo has my dream job- she is a professional blogger. I mean- YES PLEASE!  Secondly, she is hilarious.  Don’t believe me? I’ll prove it to you.

“The day before, I’d researched Lorena’s company while watching a marathon of murder mystery shows. Sure, I was now highly paranoid about getting kidnapped, but at least I felt prepared for my interview.”

Need more?

“Runner’ is a strong word. On occasion, I’ve been known to move slightly faster than a walking pace, but it’s not very often.”

Okay fine, I’ll do ONE more, but only because you asked so nicely.

“He didn’t even know the effect those dimples had on my girly parts. One word: Ijustgotpregnant. Yeah, that’s one word.”

I seriously laugh out loud so many times while I read her books! So many quotable lines. And I zoomed through the first half of this book!

what i didn't like
I know, I mentioned the first half of this book. Well the second half of this book was too long.  None of her books are really that long, but seriously, part way through this book I was ready for it to wrap up.
Her steam level is high.  But if you’re up for skimming those parts, OR if you don’t mind some hot tub steam levels – you will really enjoy her books!

while reading you should
Eat: Pizza (because, really, when should you NOT eat pizza?)
Watch: The Devil Wears Prada (feel free to skip the annoying boy drama scenes)
Listen:  The Oogum Boogum Song by Brenton Wood
