Standalone Romantic Comedy

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…
Josephine is a fashion blogger from Texas, recently moved to New York City to make it big. It’s been her dream for years to be in fashion, and she longs to use her fashion degree that she obtained through a little school in Texas. What she wasn’t expecting was how hard it would be to become something in the big city. She’s living in a rundown apartment that costs an arm and a leg, and she’s barely surviving money-wise. When she garners an invite to her first big party, she meets Julian Lefray. Hot, sexy, older, brother-of-the-girl-she’s-trying-to-work-for Julian. Working for Julian? Oh piece of cake. Sexy cake. Mmmm. Jo was very sassy and brave. The things she said and did I could only dream of having the confidence to do. But she was smart, too. She had no apologies for being different than the norm, and she worked it like she owned it.
Julian Lefray is temporarily running his sister’s business while she’s away and hires Jo to be his assistant. He won’t deny his attraction to her, and for once, he may not be the one in charge of things. I loved that Julian, while very rich, didn’t ever act like it. He was very down to earth, likable, and sweet. You felt like he was a normal guy and not just while you were in his head. He had humor and was completely relatable. And did I mention that he’s very, very attractive? I did? Just making sure 😉
One thing that I love about R.S. Grey’s writing is that she’s very witty in her banter (both outwardly and inwardly). It will make you smile and laugh, as well as feel that tingle of romance. There’s never an overabundance or angst, or anything excessive really. She doesn’t need it because her books are perfect as they are. Light, sweet, and romantic, you’ll fall in love with this book. It was a perfect palate cleanser and remedy to a book slump. Come find out about that allure of Julian Lefray already, won’t you?
“He didn’t even know the effect those dimples had on my girly parts. One word: Ijustgotpregnant. Yeah, that’s one word.”
♦ABOUT THE AUTHOR♦
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.
