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.


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…




Véleményem a könyvről

Imádom R. S. Greyt! Ha egy kis könnyed, vicces szórakoztató könyvre vágyom, mindig tudom, hogy hozzá bátran fordulhatok. Ez a könyv is nagyon jól esett a lelkemnek, és jókat nevettem rajta.

A történet főszereplője Josephine Keller, a What Jo Wore blog szerkesztője, akinek minden álma, hogy a divatszakmában helyezkedhessen el. Éppen ezért mindent feladva, szinte üres pénztárcával fogja magát és egy texasi kisvárosból elköltözik New Yorkba, hogy ott próbáljon szerencsét. A szülei és az egész kisváros arra vár, hogy mikor bukik el, és költözik vissza fülét farkát behúzva Texasba, hiszen New Yorkban senkit nem ismer, egyszerűen lehetetlen bekerülni a divatszakma berkeibe, és meg kell tanulnia egyedül boldogulnia.

Aztán a sors úgy hozza, hogy egy estélyen -ahova mint divatblogger ő is hivatalos-, találkozik Julian Lafrey-el, a Lorena Lefray Designs 49%-os tulajdonosával. Végül összeszedi minden bátorságát és elmondja a férfinak, hogy beadta az önéletrajzát az általuk meghirdetett asszisztensi pozícióra és megkéri, hogy szóljon egy jó szót a nővérénél az érdekében. Csakhogy kiderül, hogy jelenleg Julian veszi át a cégirányítást és ő keres asszisztenst. Végül Jo persze megkapja az állást és innentől kezdve jöhetnek a bonyodalmak amelyek kölcsönös vonzalomból adódnak, aminek persze ellen kell állniuk. :))

Összességében humoros volt és aranyos, és már alig várom a következő részt, ami szeptember 28-án jelenik meg. 🙂


My Review in English

I love R. S. Grey! If I want to read a sweet and funny story, I know that I can always count on her. This book was so right for my soul, I laughed a lot and I enjoyed it so much!

The main character of the story is Josephine Keller who runs a fashion blog called What Jo Wore, and her biggest dream is to get a job in the fashion business. She gives up everything – and with an almost empty bank account and without friends – she moves to New York from Texas to try her luck. Her parents and the whole town disapprove this decision and everybody is waiting for her to shamefully move back.

Because of her blog, she has been invited to the New York Fashion Gala, where she meets with Julian Lefrey, who owns 49% of the Lorenda Lefray Designs. She takes a big breath and all of her courage and tells Julian that she just applied for an assistant job for his company and she asks him if he could put in a good word for her with his sister.  But it turns out that temporarily Julian will be taking over the company and he is the one who wants to hire an assistant. Finally Jo gets the job and here comes the problem, because they both feel immediately attracted to each other but they must resist.

Overall it was humorous and sweet and I just can’t wait to the 28th of September, when the next part of the series will be released! 🙂


My Favorite Quotes From the Book

“He didn’t even know the effect those dimples had on my girly parts. One word: Ijustgotpregnant.Yeah, that’s one word.”

“You need a job and he’s looking for a new assistant. Nothing more, nothing less. Ignore the tall, dark, and handsome vibe. Book boyfriends exist for a reason.”

“Julian,” Josephine whispered. “Am I dreaming?”I reached out for her hand. “No. We are definitely in the middle of an old person swinger’s party right now.”“Josephine,” Holly called from across the room. “Come on in, we don’t bite!”Of course you don’t bite, most of you don’t even have teeth.”

“(…)Julian Lefray naked. Well, naked except for an itty bitty hotel towel wrapped around his waist. He could have been the Eighth Wonder of the World.”

“I can totally do this. Italian cabbie believes in me, and that counts for something.”

4.5- Sweet and funny- Stars

About the Author

I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things… everyday.

I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors are 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.
