My rating is 5 out of 5 Stars
I loved every bit of this story, beginning to end. Jessica immerses us in a world of friends to lovers, exes who have damaged the other, sweetness and angst. I held my breath for the last few chapters. I had to know how things were going to work out. It turned out perfect and all the angst to get to that place was perfect.
Jackie’s ex husband cheated on her and she has pretty much sworn off men. She has become best friends with Vince after his failed marriage as well. When this perfectly hot male specimen runs by her office window everyday, Vince encourages her to ask him out. This is his way of getting his shot with her, by picking up the pieces.
Vince agrees to coach her through dating as his own way of creeping in there and taking up residence in her heart. The plan could very well back fire but he takes his chances.
This was overall a great book, and I look forward to more by this author.
Jacqueline: As an adult woman–and the vice president of a marketing firm–I shouldn’t be waiting by my office window to ogle the mystery man who jogs by every morning at 11:45. Sure, he’s a gorgeous, perfect specimen of the human race, but I can’t bring myself to hit on a total stranger. However, my best friend-slash-colleague Vince Carson thinks I should do more than talk to the guy. In fact, he’s borderline obsessive about “getting me laid.” (His words.) But the more time we spend together, the more it’s clear: The one I’m falling for is Vince.
Vince: Jackie Butler’s got it bad for some pompous, over-pumped A-hole who struts his stuff past her window. That doesn’t bother me. I know she deserves nice things. What does bother me is that she friend-zoned me big-time last year, so I can’t ask her out myself. But what if I set her up with Mr. Steroids? Then, when he breaks her heart, I can swoop in and save her like the nice guy I am. Everything’s going according to plan . . . until we share a ridiculously epic kiss. And suddenly anything is possible.
