This book is like the perfect pie (insert your own favorite dessert) of romance books. It has all the perfect ingredients in just the right amounts. Lucy managed to take office romance, enemies-to-lovers, romantic comedy, grumpy hero, opposites attract, and all the feels and combine them into the perfect novel. It’s a fantastic escape, because while it has the perfect splash of reality, it also has witty banter, characters you will adore, and a HEA that will leave you giddy and swooning.
I couldn’t love Dom and Ally more. Dom comes across as an alphahole to some, but he is so much more, and we get to see that other side of him. He’s so generous and wants to take care of those he loves. He wants to be a good man. He wants to be deserving of love, but he’s just not sure he is. Enter Ally. She’s an optimist through and through, but sometimes she takes on too much. She has a huge heart, and she can see straight through Dom. She is sassy and sweet. Together, they are incredible…if they can just get past all their obstacles and get there.
This book is full of emotion. I laughed, like so much! I cried tears of both joy and sadness. I swooned, and not gonna lie, I could feel the heat! When I started reading, I had such a hard time stopping for anything! I read most of the night then got right back up and dove right back in. There have been few books lately that have grabbed and held my attention quite like this one did. Do yourself a favor and grab your copy today!

I got her fired. Okay, so I’d had a bad day and took it out on a bystander in a pizza shop. But there’s nothing innocent about Ally Morales. She proves that her first day of her new job… in my office… after being hired by my mother.
So maybe her colorful, annoying, inexplicably alluring personality brightens up the magazine’s offices that have felt like a prison for the past year. Maybe I like that she argues with me in front of the editorial staff. And maybe my after-hours fantasies are haunted by those brown eyes and that sharp tongue.
But that doesn’t mean that I’m going to be the next Russo man to take advantage of his position. I might be a second-generation asshole, but I am not my father.
She’s working herself to death at half a dozen dead-end jobs for some secret reason she doesn’t feel like sharing with me. And I’m going to fix it all. Don’t accuse me of caring. She’s nothing more than a puzzle to be solved. If I can get her to quit, I can finally peel away all those layers. Then I can go back to salvaging the family name and forget all about the dancing, beer-slinging brunette.
Ha. Hold my beer, Grumpy Grump Face.
Author’s Note: A steamy, swoony workplace romantic comedy with a grumpy boss hero determined to save the day and a plucky heroine who is starting to wonder if there might actually be a beating heart just beneath her boss’s sexy vests.
About the Author
Lucy is a Wall Street Journal and #1 Amazon Kindle Store bestseller of romantic comedies and contemporary romance. She grew up in rural Pennsylvania with a lot of time on her hands and a big imagination. She was the oldest of three in a book-obsessed household. Dinners were often spent in silence while family members had their noses buried in books. A passion for writing took hold at five when she taught her brother to write his name on the bathroom door.
She started writing (on paper) in the second grade, first about pilgrims on the Mayflower and over the years graduated to essays, articles, blogs, and finally books. “Pretend You’re Mine” was her runaway hit and she’s been writing full-time ever since.
Non-romance-writing jobs have included event planner, bartender, newspaper lackey, and yoga instructor.
Lucy and Mr. Lucy, enjoy spending time with their 1.7 million nieces and nephews and laying on beaches with umbrella drinks.
