Lily, you predictable perv. I knew you’d open this email faster if I tempted you with a glimpse of JT’s “PP”. Well, put your pants back on and grab some bubbly because I have much better news to share.I GOT A JOB!
As of tomorrow, I’ll be the new executive assistant at Lorena Lefray Designs. I am SO excited, but there’s one itty bitty problem: I won’t be Lorena’s assistant. I’ll be working for her older brother, Julian.
I know what you’re thinking- “But Jo, what’s the problem?”
Google him. Now. He’s the man in the fitted navy suit whose face reminds you that there’s hope yet for this cruel, ugly world. Keep scrolling…Do you see those dimples? Yup. That’s the Julian Lefray I will be reporting to tomorrow morning.
Lord, help us all…
The Allure of Julian LeFray is a charming romantic comedy about making it in the world of high fashion and finding love unexpectedly.
Jo and Julian were fun characters with fabulous chemistry. Jo made quite the employee with her fierce determination and savvy business skills. Julian’s stunning good looks and debonair manner made him quite irresistible. Not only did their chemistry bode well in the workplace, it made for some pretty steamy encounters outside the workplace. Their witty banter kept me laughing throughout and I enjoyed them immensely.
The drama surrounding Jo and Julian, though comical at times, provided insight into their respective backgrounds and gave depth to the story. But the setting among high society and the fashion industry certainly elevate the drama levels and make this one entertaining page turner.
I am anxiously awaiting the spin-off story, The Allure of Dean Harper, which is scheduled to release Fall 2015.
Overall Rating: 4 Stars
I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors include Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I’m a comedy geek and love all things “funny”. Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.
