My Thursday afternoon meeting was a no show. Imagine my surprise when a drenched, flustered brunette slipped into the booth across from me, acting like she was supposed to be there.
When she slipped back out with a snappy goodbye, I never thought I’d see her again.
Until I walked into my Friday morning meeting.
At first, I didn’t recognize her—she was dry this time. But from the look on her face, she recognized me.
When she gave the worst pitch I’ve ever sat through, I thought my boss, and mentor, was going to show her the door—except he accepts the proposal and tells me we have to work together.
I didn’t anticipate I would like her, let alone be interested in her. Sure, she was hot and sassy.
But something about her rubbed me the wrong way.
And yet I couldn’t stop thinking about her.
So, when she leaves the room and her phone chimes with a new text, I knew I wasn’t supposed to look.
I also knew I wasn’t supposed to cancel her date for later that evening.
And I definitely knew I wasn’t supposed to delete the entire exchange, so she had no idea what I’d done.
But I did. And then I showed up at the restaurant, pretending like this was all a big coincidence.
When the date is over, I want more. I need more.
We start pretend-dating because she needs practice, and I tell myself, New York’s most eligible billionaire bachelor, that this is just a bit of fun.
What could possibly go wrong?
Review by Twinsie Dee
I was given this book by the author for an honest review
Jurnee went to New York to experience life and practice date for 6 weeks he to try and pitch an idea of opening a single coffee shop. After getting caught in the rain on her way to her first blind date and then him being rude as can be she doesn’t even know what to do. Well when she lands a business meeting with a huge firm over her coffee shop she runs into her date there and wonders what i going on. Anderson is a high most influential bachelor in New York, and tried very hard not to end up in the tabloid so he live a very low key life if at all possible. But when Jurnee coming into his life and she has no idea who he is and he starts to wonder if she is real at all he has never met a woman who didn’t know who he was or wanted his money. Will they both be able to lower there walls that were built after past breakups and things that were said to them and be able to actually be happy or will it blow up in their faces. Thi book was so good i loved it from the beginning Jurnee’s sass and determination just files off the pages and Anderson’s cocky swag flies off as well i loved it so much.
Alexandria Sure is from Michigan and adores her supportive family, her two rescue pups, and her mighty Spartans. Her coffee obsession leads her to writing in local coffee shops where characters come alive between salted caramel lattes and large cups of “cold brew extra cream two Splenda,” which are usually on the counter when she walks in because the baristas know her car. (Thanks, Biggby!)
When she is not writing, she spends a great deal of her time perfecting her craft. She is an active member of Capital City Writers Association and attends several writing conferences each year.
Sure’s first novel, Before Him Comes Me, is an unconventional romance of self-discovery, described by readers as “the first BDSM book with no sex.”
