Product Description

Product Description

Lexi’s life is one big dump. Or so she thinks. To keep her mind off her latest breakup, she stays busy with work. It’s no big deal, since writing for Time Out Portland Magazine is a blast…except for the one small snag – Grant Reeds.

Grant, a shy but sexy computer geek, is new to Time Out, working as the Networking Director for the online magazine. Even though Lexi thinks he doesn’t notice her, he sure as hell does. The owners have a plan for their upcoming Valentine’s Special, pairing up the two to explore romantic date ideas around the city.

Soon, Lexi and Grant learn that the old adage, “Opposites Attract,” can ring true.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read! 22 January 2015
Format: Kindle Edition
Lexi is a young lady working at Time Out. Lexi has had a bad run of luck with men and is about to write them off when her supervisor's put out a contest for the crew that works for them. They are to research places for special Valentine's dates and report back in a column as to what they found in their research. Lexi is paired up with the last person in the office that she wants to be with, Grant. Lexi thinks that Grant is a geek because he works with computers and wears glasses. Grant just recently started working for the same company and Lexi thinks that Grant should have at least given her a second glance or something but he has not. Lexi is perplexed by Grant and does not want to work with him at all.

To Lexi's surprise, Grant is a really nice guy and has only been hiding his glances at her and they way that he truly feels about her. Grant is taken back with how Lexi acts at first but once they warm up to each other and go out on their first research date, things tend to heat up. A little alcohol and the truths about each others feelings start coming to light. Lexi is so relieved that she and Grant have gotten paired up with each other now that she has gotten to know him a little better and even thinks that his geeky glasses are sexy!!

As Grant and Lexi do more and more research for their column, they become close and closer. During their research, Grant figures out that their supervisor's had set them up because they wanted then to get together and knew that if they just spent a little time with each other, they would hit it off.

This was such a well written short story that I flew right through it!! I could so see this story being made into a cute Hallmark movie!! Thanks Melinda for giving us another great read!!

Quirky, Cute and a great little read. Enjoyed this from start to finish, its well written, decent storyline, Lexi and Grant are sent to check out some ideal valentine places for dates, Now what will happen? Lexi has had some bad experiences with guys, Grant is a bit of a strange one to be paired with her. They set off to find the best places to write their research about for a Valentine Date, will they be able to cope with each other ? will they hate it? will they discover they have more in common than they thought? Do opposites attract? It is for you to read to discover, but I can say without a shadow of a doubt this is a great read, witty, charming and keeps you wanting it to continue !!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, feel good book! 22 January 2015
By Kerry M. - Published on

Right from page one, I connected with Lexi. At the start of the story, she's typing a list of snarky comebacks that she wished she would've said when her boyfriend dumped her the night before. I can totally relate to that as I'm never able to think on my feet and come up with a witty comeback. lol. The love interest, Grant, was super sexy, and I thought he was a prefect match for Lexi. The two got along very well, and the chemistry between them was fantastic. They have cutesy nicknames for each other, too, which was adorable the first few times they were used. But I felt they were overused at times.

It is a novella, so I expected the story to progress quickly, and it did! But despite the fast pace, it was very narrative heavy. I would've liked to have a bit more action, maybe some more dialogue, too. I was also expecting the back and forth between Grant and Lexi to progress and be drawn out more, to have that sexual tension carry us through most of the story, but it didn't. There was a bit of tension between them at the start, but they were quickly getting past it and hooking up. Don't get me wrong, their time together was H.O.T., but I personally love the "love to hate and hate to love" dynamic, and having read Melinda's others books, she's a master at this. I was really hoping there would've been more of it in this book, too.

Overall, Time Out, Valentine is a fun, heartfelt, feel good book. It's a great, quick read for a lazy afternoon or a cold evening curled up in bed. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book is so good. I loved it 30 January 2015

Given To Me For An Honest Review

Time Out, Valentine by Melinda Dozier is a must read for everyone. Once you open it, it will grab you and hold you down and you'll watch the pages turn and turn and turn again until you reach the end. The book is so good. I loved it. Lexi has had bad luck with men. Her supervisor at work decides to pair up employees to research sites for Valentine dates. Lexi is paired up with Grant. Grant is a geek! Before long Lexi discovers that Grant is a really cool guy, along with his sexy glasses. They become closer than just co-workers. Do opposites really attract? Ask Lexi and Grant. I gave this book 5 stars but I wanted to give it 10+. This would make a neat gift and would look good on your bookshelf. You'll be finding yourself
re-reading it over and over again. I highly recommend this book to everyone. I look for more from Melinda Dozier.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy, light-hearted read 22 January 2015
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I received an ARC for an honest review.

I'm going more toward a 3.5, but listed at 4 due to pure cuteness.

What a great concept for the plot! Fellow co-workers for an online magazine get thrown together by their bosses to write stories on the best places in their city to 'date' for Valentine's Day. HOW they come up with their story is completely up to them. For the characters in Time Out, that means actually going out on dates. And, falling in love, of course!

Ms. Dozier put together a quick, easy-to-read contemporary romance. A bit quirky, the characters were definitely chuckle worthy a few times.

My issue which pulls me more toward that 3.5 is there are a handful of dialogue / cliche moments where I really felt Ms. Dozier could have made a little more impact.

If you're looking for an easy, light-hearted read, this is a story you must pick up!
