About the book: Camilla Sweeten is serious about her job in the County Attorney’s office. She’s even working up the courage to ask her boss to consider her for promotion to deputy.
Then, into court walks the gorgeous Zane Holyoake, and disaster strikes—in the form of a total brain fog right in the middle of her closing arguments. In front of both her boss and the meanest bear of a judge in the county, Camilla hears herself saying, “Like, I totally made my point,” as though she’d flown in from 1980s California in a time machine airplane.
Now her boss will never consider her for deputy—especially since Zane turns out to be a new lawyer, possibly brought in to steal her dream job.
But when a notorious criminal is caught in their county, Camilla must focus on getting the thief convicted and not on Zane, who smells heavenly and is bent on distracting her with lunch offers and wacky Boy Scout stories that may melt her many resolves.
It’s going to take incredible willpower to ignore this attractive nuisance.
My review: This book was really fun! One of the first things I noticed about this book was the clever chapter titles. They are all legal terms, so fun for a book about lawyers. Camilla is a really interesting character, she's kind of boring at first because she's working so hard at her job to get a promotion. But once Zane shows up on the scene, it's all she can do to string two sentences together. I love how she keeps trying to convince herself that she wants nothing to do with him, almost looking for reasons why he's not perfect. Things like his vehicle of choice, a jacked up monster truck basically. Or the way that he tries to get her to go out with him. All. The. Time. It really takes her a long time to realize that he's real and perfect for him, but that makes the story all the more fun.
Zane was a great character, he's pretty much the hot guy next door. I really loved their boss, Falcon, wow! He is a quirky character, I liked how Camilla never knew just where she stood in the office in relation to him, was he mad at her, was she one of his favorites, who knows! I was kind of in awe of the stuff he pulled at their work party, make sure to read this scene! I'm pretty sure my jaw was dropped open during the whole thing. Really well-written!
This is a really cute, clean, fun romance that you can read fairly quickly. You won't want to put it down, I know I didn't!
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
