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.


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…


My Review:

Review also posted on Goodreads

Josephine Keller left an annoying impression to me for the first three chapters and I thought she’s an overconfident wannabe fashionista. I misinterpreted her personality and she proved me wrong. She’s a fashion a blogger on What Jo Wore from Texas and moved to New York City to pursue her dreams. Coming from a small town and broke, she badly needed a job to pay her bills and keep up with fashion trends. So, she attended this event to seek Lorena Lefray and hoping she’ll secure a job in her company. Instead, she stumbled on her brother, Julian Lefray and she realize he was her boss while Lorena is on sick leave.

Later on the novel, I like Josephine. She’s bubbly, creative, smart and hardworking. She remains positive despite of financial struggles and I love her articles about her shopping clothes from thrift shops. Nothing is impossible when you’re a dreamer and I’m proud of her achievements. Her character development was more evident than Julian. Kind of disappointing because he’s just the typical boss. If you know what I mean..

The romance was light. Jo and Julian are good together. Not as sexy as I’ve thought and it goes the cute side. There was one part that had me cracking up.. Jo’s neighbor’s party. Omg it was funny as hell and if I were in Jo’s position, I probably want to bleach my eyes and never attend that party. Lol. 😂

The story started great but its epilogue was underwhelming and lackluster. It pissed me off because these characters have potential and that bland ending was an injustice for these two. Ugh. It’s still a happy ever after but I think R.S. Grey can write a better epilogue than this.
