Subject: Justin Timberlake Nudes!

Lily, you predictable perv. I knew you’d open this email faster if I tempted you with a glimpse of JT's “PP”. Well, put your pants back on and grab some bubbly because I have much better news to share.

I GOT A JOB!

As of tomorrow, I’ll be the new executive assistant at Lorena Lefray Designs. I am SO excited, but there’s one itty bitty problem: I won’t be Lorena’s assistant. I’ll be working for her older brother, Julian.

I know what you're thinking- "But Jo, what’s the problem?"

Google him. Now. He’s the man in the fitted navy suit whose face reminds you that there’s hope yet for this cruel, ugly world. Keep scrolling…Do you see those dimples? Yup. That’s the Julian Lefray I will be reporting to tomorrow morning.

Lord, help us all...

XO,
Jo


REVIEW

4.5 AWESOME WITTINESS STARS!

Sometimes I just need a FUN book. A book that makes me smile, get me lost in the laughter, and just bring pure joy to my reading experience. Well, The Allure of Julian Lefray was exactly what my doctor prescribed! I loved this lighthearted, lively, and super funny story about a witty girl and her career and love adventures. :D

“I needed to get into business mode. I am Josephine, hear me roar.”

Josephine Keller is a dreamer but also a go-getter. After recently moving to New York from a very small town in Texas, she's ready to pursuit her career in the fashion world and prove to her parents that dreams can come true. However, no one said making it in the Big Apple was going to be easy so when she starts to struggle financially it becomes indispensable for her to find a job that keeps her in NY and also closer to her career goals. What Josephine didn't anticipate while finding and getting the job was also getting a boss like Julian Lefray.

“I stared at him for a moment before averting my gaze and staring back down at my keyboard. Hey vagina, let’s focus on other things right now. Like, oh I don’t know, WORK.”

This story surprised in such a good way. With the title of the book I expected only Josephine's POV but I was wrong. This clever author actually gives dual POVs and the combination couldn't more perfect. On one side there's the funny, witty, energetic, and food-obsessed Josephine who loves her new job but loves even more spending time with her boss. That's because he's not only easy on the eyes, he's completely edible. With his two-piece suit, heart-melting dimples, and Spanish features he's really a dream man. Yet above all that and to make it more complicated for both of them, Josephine and Julian perfectly click as friends. Through the jokes, banters, and flirting these two keep building on that friendship but also on their inevitable attraction.

He reached forward and gripped my arm just above my elbow as he leaned in to kiss my cheek. JESUS CHRIST. He smelled divine, like he’d spent the morning in the woods building me a log cabin. I hated him.

These two were hilarious. Their humor was stellar and Josephine's imagination made me laugh so much. Moreover, aside from being such a man-candy, Julian was such a sweetheart with Josephine and I loved him for it. The way his attraction for her slowly drove him crazy made me so happy because when he lost his composure he was so funny, sexy, and totally alluring.

“Josephine was different. She was my friend. She was my very hot friend. She was my very hot, very unattainable friend.”

The Allure of Julian Lefray was such a fun read. It had everything from a winning romantic comedy that made me all kinds of happy. I loved it and I totally recommend its awesome wittiness because we all need more laughter in our lives for sure! ;)

“I was not prepared to go into work. I had the same kind of dread in my stomach that built up right before I had to wax my hoohah before swim season.”
