When I first heard of this book, I was absolutely hooked. I have to admit I haven't read anything from any of the authors (Veronica Rossi and Lorin Oberweger), although Rossi's Under The Never Sky is on my TBR. The blurb of the book and the cover design got me.
The general concept of the story is not that new to me. You know, boy-girl hook ups and then they end up co-workers, or in this case co-interns. Suffice to say, I like those kinds of stories because I like how the characters maneuver their ways out of awkward situation, which is funny and insightful at the same time. What made this book stand out among the others in the same genre is that it is a lighter read. It is not too overly dramatic, which is annoying sometimes. It's just the right mix of humor, drama and romance.
I love Mia's character. I absolutely do. I love films as much as I love books. Her character is easy to relate with. I love her wisdom and her humor. I loved Ethan too! He's an ideal guy, total keeper. What I really liked between these two is how they managed (or not manage) to keep their hands off each other because of the "no-dating" company policy. But seriously, they handled it well, most of the time. Which is a good thing, less drama, more maturity.
This book exceeded my expectations. I loved every bits of it. The humor, flirting and romance, and even the complications and drama, it's really amazing how all of these things are packed together and beautifully written in one book.
I would totally recommend this book.
