reality over fantasy in this friends-to-lovers romance. Jacqueline:
As an adult woman—and the vice president of a marketing firm—I shouldn’t be waiting by my office window to ogle the mystery man who jogs by every morning at 11:45. Sure, he’s a gorgeous, perfect specimen of the human race, but I can’t bring myself to hit on a total stranger. However, my best friend–slash–colleague Vince Carson
thinks I should do more than talk to the guy. In fact, he’s borderline
obsessive about “getting me laid.” (His words.) But the more time we spend
together, the more it’s clear: The one I’m falling for is Vince.
Vince: Jackie Butler’s got it bad for some pompous, over-pumped A-hole who struts his stuff past her window. That doesn’t bother me. I know she deserves nice things. What does bother me is that she friend-zoned me big-time last year, so I can’t ask her out
myself. But what if I set her up with Mr. Steroids? Then, when he breaks her
heart, I can swoop in and save her like the nice guy I am. Everything’s going
according to plan . . . until we share a ridiculously epic kiss. And suddenly
anything is possible.
Once I read the blurb for this, I had to read it. Girl stares out her office window at scantily clad man going by. Sounds like the old Diet Coke commercials…
Anyway, her friend and coworker Vince wants to help her out with getting this guy out on a date. But for a completely self-serving purpose because HE wants Jackie but he wants her to get out and date so she doesn’t use him as a rebound.
Vince has always been a great friend to Jackie and here he is offering to help her get the confidence to ask out runner guy. The downside? As she spends more time with Vince, she realizes she wants him and not the runner…
Made me think of a Meg Ryan Rom-Com in a way. Definitely a book I could see made into a movie. And that would definitely be a movie I’d watch!
