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

This is the perfect book to read when you need something funny and sweet and smart.
I think I postponed writing something it, because a certain dirty girl (Lana, yeah, I’m talking about you :P) beat me to it and wrote the most perfect review, so I felt like I can’t compete with that.
So I guess this review is more for myself, to remember how great this book made me feel while reading it and how much i liked it.

Jo – a Texas 23yo comes to NY to make her dream come true: working for Vogue. She’s obsessed with fashion ever since she was a little girl.
Julian – 30yo “book boyfriend material” type has to run her fashion designer sister’s company while she’s in rehab.

Meeting Jo at NY Fashion Week, he offers her a position as his assistant while he put the company back together. They hit it off because they’re both super smart, super funny and it might also help that they’re both gorgeous. This is their story. This is about two people who become best friends and then upgrade their relationship to “soulmates forever” or something sweet and cheesy like that. 🙂

You’ll enjoy their story because they’ll both make you laugh.

You’ll appreciate their sharp minds and witty banter.
Once I let you in here, you’re not going to look at me the same anymore.” I frowned. “What? Why?” She smiled. “It’s just that my ratmates are really sensitive and I don’t want you to insult their home.” I held my hand up in mock seriousness. “Why do you think I ordered extra cheese?”

It’s also quite smutty, but not erotica-specific.
Do you always carry a t-ball bat in your pants?”

or

Will you be honest about how badly you want me right now or do I need to slide my hand between your legs to get the truth?”

And again: it will make you feel really good.

It’s drama free, nothing complicated. Just a classic romcom that should be made into a movie to watch with your girls and swoon over Julian. He’s pretty great, trust me. Or as Jo said:

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

So, don’t miss out on this one. You can even read it for free, if you have a KU subscription. 😉
Oh, and if you’re wondering, I really don’t know why I rated it with only 4★. Maybe it will come to me and I’ll tell you later. Or maybe you can read it too and we can compare notes.
