Reviewed in Australia on 28 July 2016
Having read this author's two other books and completely loving them, i must say i surprisingly didn't love this one so much. Although there were bits of her classic funny and quirky moments, this story still lacked a deeper plot line and characters. I skimmed through a lot of this book just to see how it all played out in the end.
What started off as an insta-lust became an over dramatic secretive relationship all to save a job position while bowing down to ONE OF THE MOST UNPLEASANT, VILE AND MALICIOUS 'boss' Bellini. Told in 3 different POVs, I don't even understand why there needed to be a POV of that exasperating villain. I hated how in the end she still managed to scare the heroine away. URGHHH!!
I really don't want to give anything away as there's some 'secrets'.. but most(maybe all) of them were totally unnecessary to tell you the truth. I would have bitch slapped that sad excuse of a boss, grabbed by man by his collar and flicked her my finger as i walked out.. a longggg time ago!!
On the plus side, the fact that i hated Bellini SO MUCH just goes to show what a fantastic author Meghan Quinn is- to have created such a character. Also, IF i ever wrote a book, the physical aspects of this heroine would have been something i conjured up as well. Tall-ish, tanned, long black hair, grey eyes...with a cross-fit body! That was a winner. She's got some interesting piercings and tattoos as well.
