(Trust) Falling for You by Charish Reid

(Trust) Falling for You

(Trust) Falling for You is a fun, sweet novella about two college professors with very, very different personal and teaching styles falling for each other on a Team Building retreat in the woods of Wisconsin. This retreat, incidentally, sounds both like an HR nightmare and the sort of thing guaranteed to result in multiple letters to Ask a Manager, and also precisely like something that someone in academic administration would decide was a brilliant thing … Continue reading (Trust) Falling for You by Charish Reid

The Love Experiment by Ainslie Paton

The Love Experiment

The Love Experiment by Ainslie Paton is a workplace romance with a plot that involves that 36 questions test which supposedly leads to love. I don’t know when the test was first created, but I do remember that it was everywhere a few years ago after The New York Times published the “test.” It’s an interesting concept for a romance, especially for a reader like me, who frequently takes online quizzes to see when I’ll … Continue reading The Love Experiment by Ainslie Paton

Lightning Review

Fling by Jana Aston


I’ve been feeling overwhelmed lately (I know, right?) so I’ve been turning to novellas for quick reads to help me cope. Fling by Jana Aston is a forbidden office romance.   For the most part I enjoyed it, but the romance wasn’t adequately developed (probably due to the length of the book) and sometimes the hero irked me. He was irksome. Sandra Adams is an executive assistant to the young CEO of a company (Sawyer, hero … Continue reading Fling by Jana Aston

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

The Hating Game

This book might be receiving a lot of attention and the reason is, it’s pretty wonderful. I can’t go back to my copy for quotes for this review because I end up reading it again and I already lost too much time and sleep trying to make myself stop reading it. Lucy Hutton is the executive assistant to one of the co-CEOs of a recently merged publishing company. Her nemesis and office mate, Joshua Templeman, is the … Continue reading The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

Under the Lights by Dahlia Adler

Under the Lights

A few weeks ago, I was telling folks on Twitter that I’d made a rather large dork of myself (not like that’s at all difficult) by begging a publisher to approve a NetGalley request for a New Adult F/F novel about actors on a teen drama. Someone pointed my ridiculousness out to the author, who contacted me very kindly and sent me an ARC – which was very cool of her – and so I … Continue reading Under the Lights by Dahlia Adler
