Camilla Sweeten is serious about her job in the County Attorney’s office. She’s even working up the courage to ask her boss to consider her for promotion to deputy.
Then, into court walks the gorgeous Zane Holyoake, and disaster strikes—in the form of a total brain fog right in the middle of her closing arguments. In front of both her boss and the meanest bear of a judge in the county, Camilla hears herself saying, “Like, I totally made my point,” as though she’d flown in from1980s California in a time machine airplane.
Now her boss will never consider her for deputy—especially since Zane turns out to be a new lawyer, possibly brought in to steal her dream job.
But when a notorious criminal is caught in their county, Camilla must focus on getting the thief convicted and not on Zane, who smells heavenly and is bent on distracting her with lunch offers and wacky Boy Scout stories that may melt her many resolves.
It’s going to take incredible willpower to ignore this attractive nuisance.
This was a cute & clean contemporary romance. I loved the witty humor and dialogue between the two main characters. The boss wasn’t my favorite character, especially with the whole employee camp-out thing (I thought this seemed pretty unprofessional for a law office). And I also thought that Camilla’s reasoning and thinking about why she couldn’t have a relationship was frustrating and hard to believe for someone as smart as she supposedly was. Some of the explanations at the end of the story seemed a bit rushed and confusing. But it was a fun escape book and I always appreciate when I can just sit and enjoy a story without having to worry about questionable content.
I always enjoy Jennifer Griffith’s books! I know I will smile, I know I will laugh. Zane and Camilla were great characters! I loved Zane’s determination to go out with Camilla and her attempts to continuously come up with ways to say no. The story is told from Camilla’s perspective, and it was so fun to be inside her head. This was the perfect way to escape life for a bit.
