Julia Dorning is a spinster, or at least on the road to becoming one. She has no social life, hates her job, and lives in her parent’s basement with her cat, Charlie.
With the arrival of Jared Moody, the new hire at work, Julia’s mundane life is suddenly turned upside down. Her instant (and totally ridiculous) crush on the new guy causes Julia to finally make some long-overdue changes, in hopes to find a life that includes more than baking and hanging out with Charlie.
But when the biggest and most unexpected change comes, will the new and improved Julia be able to overcome it? Or will she go back to her spinster ways?

My review: This book sounded like a lot of fun, and I wasn't disappointed. I really liked Julia and I was rooting for her as she made changes to her life to impress Jared. Not because Jared needing impressing, but simply because it was obvious that there were many things about her life that Julia didn't like, her job, and living in her parent's basement to name just a couple. I really liked Julia's voice in the book, it was fun to see her world through her eyes. I loved seeing her come out of her shell and become the person that she wanted to be. There was also plenty of humor in this one. This book had a few mild swear words that didn't bother me, I loved that the romance aspect was clean. This is a fun, quirky book that you won't want to put down until the very end!
