I’m a sucker for a romance novel. Give me a forlorn woman in search of a man to take on a date, show off at a wedding, or flaunt in front of an ex, and I’m in. Yes, I realize this all seems very anti-whateverism that people often expect from me, but these kinds of stories are so outside the realm of my everyday life that they offer a breath of fresh air (even if they’re occasionally formulaic).
Andie J. Chirstopher’s Not That Kind of Guywas the perfect pick for my most recent holiday trip: light but people with strong characters, full of quick-witted banter yet evenly paced. Main character Bridget Nolan is a ball-busting attorney who thinks she’s got the perfect life with the perfect man at her side – her childhood friend, the respectful career as an Assistant DA – even though she’s desperately underpaid, and a group of family and friends who support her no matter the circumstance. All of that perfection takes a tumble when one piece – the “perfect” man – falls out of the equation. Not only is Bridget left without someone to fully flesh-out all of her childhood dreams about adulthood, but she’s left without a date to her brother’s wedding.
While Bridget claims that she’s “done with dating” for good and resigns herself to attending the wedding alone, intern and billionaire playboy Matt Kido walks into her office. The two start a delicate dance of banter, flirtation, and late night work sessions. And after the internship is over, all bets are off. Maybe all of Bridget’s previous ideas about romance and what she had planned were wrong. Mabye Matt can show her all the things that she never knew she wanted – he has a private jet for starters. One weekend in Las Vegas changes everything and starts the two on an unexpected but adorably passionate and lovable partnership. Yes, there are hiccups along the way, but Bridget has the gumption to get past them, and Matt has the will to make Bridget his own.
An office attraction becomes something more when they're off the clock in this delightful romantic comedy by the USA Today bestselling author of Not the Girl You Marry.
State attorney Bridget Nolan is successful in all aspects of her life—except romance. After breaking up with her longtime boyfriend, she's been slow to reenter the dating scene. To be honest, she has more important things to do like putting bad guys behind bars. But with her brother's wedding right around the corner, she suddenly needs a date and fast. Lucky for Bridget, the legal intern is almost done with his program.
Matt Kido is dumbstruck by Bridget—total love at first sight—but there's one problem. She's totally off-limits while she's his boss. But the moment he no longer reports to her, Matt decides to take a chance. An impulsive decision takes them to Las Vegas where, as the saying goes, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
Unless you put a ring on it.
About the Author
USA Today bestselling author Andie J. Christopher writes edgy, funny, sexy contemporary romance featuring heat, humor, and dirty talking heroes that make readers sweat. A graduate of the University of Notre Dame and Stanford Law School, she grew up in a family of voracious readers, and picked up her first romance novel at age twelve when she'd finished reading everything else in her grandmother's house. It was love at first read. It wasn't too long before she started writing her own stories -- her first heroine drank Campari and drove an Alfa Romeo up a winding road to a minor royal's estate in Spain. Andie lives in the Nation's Capital with her French Bulldog, Gus, a stockpile of Campari, and way too many books.
