I loved this book! It had everything I love about New Adult and about romance in general. We have a couple that is obviously into each other, but they just don't want to admit it. He's coming out of a bad relationship and just doesn't like girls right now. She's overwhelmed with a demanding family that is pushing her into something she doesn't want to do. Their solution? A summer fling!
A summer of seduction...
Jules Carmichael needs to get her life together. Pronto. School's been hell, there was that tiny stint in rehab, and worst of all, she's lost her cushy summer job. The only available work is at Office Jax, home of horrid 90s music and the biggest jerk on this side of the galaxy...
Recovering from a brutal break-up and taking a hiatus from college, Ryan DeShane has just discovered the “6 Ultimate Steps to the Perfect Summer Fling.” It's a brilliant distraction, and Jules is a tantalizing target. But the “steps” work a little too well, because he and Jules are definitely, uh, flinging. And it's only a matter of time before Ryan's foolproof plan starts to seriously unravel...
Now this wouldn't be much of a romance if the fling didn't go somewhere - so don't worry it does. But along the way we get a flashback to 90's music, apologies on both sides, and a crazy ex, and some amazing friends to help out. I really do think the 90's music and the "love letters" passed at work were some of my favorite parts. I wish I'd had a romance like that when I was in school - but that's the point of the book right? To let you experience something new and amazing.
This is book two, and I bet I know who the couple in book one are. So I'm going to be putting that one up as my next non-request/TBR pile read because I really want to read more by this author.
