An office attraction becomes something more when they’re off the clock in this delightful romantic comedy by the USA Today bestselling author of Not the Girl You Marry.
State attorney Bridget Nolan is successful in all aspects of her life—except romance. After breaking up with her longtime boyfriend, she’s been slow to reenter the dating scene. To be honest, she has more important things to do like putting bad guys behind bars. But with her brother’s wedding right around the corner, she suddenly needs a date and fast. Lucky for Bridget, the legal intern is almost done with his program.
Matt Kido is dumbstruck by Bridget—total love at first sight—but there’s one problem. She’s totally off-limits while she’s his boss. But the moment he no longer reports to her, Matt decides to take a chance. An impulsive decision takes them to Las Vegas where, as the saying goes, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
Unless you put a ring on it.
Bridget broke up with her long-term boyfriend and is not interested in dating. She’s a state attorney, and she’s focused on work. Matt is in law school, and working as a summer intern in Bridget’s office. Matt is immediately attracted to Bridget. He can’t make a move on his boss, but he takes a chance as soon as his internship ends.
Told using the alternating points of view of Bridget and Matt. Bridget is smart and independent. Matt is charming and attentive. While they work together, they work well, but hide their attraction to one another. Fortunately, it’s only a summer internship, and they are soon able to admit their feelings.
I was hesitant about this book because I wasn’t impressed with Andie J. Christopher’s Not the Girl You Marry. This one sounded like a cute and light read though, so I thought I’d give it a chance. I’m happy I did. I found Not That Kind of Guy to be a better book.
A fun contemporary romance. Delightful characters in a sweet romance. A good read for fans of rom-coms.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
