Rating: 4 Stars
Official Blurb: Jacqueline: As an adult woman--and the vice president of a marketing firm--I shouldn't be waiting by my office window to ogle the mystery man who jogs by every morning at 11:45. Sure, he's a gorgeous, perfect specimen of the human race, but I can't bring myself to hit on a total stranger. However, my best friend-slash-colleague Vince Carson thinks I should do more than talk to the guy. In fact, he's borderline obsessive about "getting me laid." (His words.) But the more time we spend together, the more it's clear: The one I'm falling for is Vince.
Vince: Jackie Butler's got it bad for some pompous, over-pumped A-hole who struts his stuff past her window. That doesn't bother me. I know she deserves nice things. What does bother me is that she friend-zoned me big-time last year, so I can't ask her out myself. But what if I set her up with Mr. Steroids? Then, when he breaks her heart, I can swoop in and save her like the nice guy I am. Everything's going according to plan . . . until we share a ridiculously epic kiss. And suddenly anything is possible.
Review: I just love friends to lover’s books, and Ms. Lemmon did not disappoint. Jackie and Vince are adorably cute together as friends and as lovers.
Both Jackie and Vince work together and share the title of VP of the company. Jackie had already been through a nasty divorce and now refuses not to date. So when Vince’s wife suddenly leaves him, Jackie helps him heal over the next several months. There are also a few other things that help him heal, but for now he keeps those a secret. But after hanging with Jackie so much and continuing to move on from his ex, Vince is now starting to see Jackie in a different light. Vince forms a plan to help Jackie start dating again, but everything isn’t as easy as he had hoped. Can he move from the friend zone to the lover’s zone without damaging the relationship?
This is a really cute book. I love the relationship as friends between Jackie and Vince. Now when they stepped into a lover’s category things got a little intense. There were lots and lots of jealously, and a few lies along the way. I didn’t like how wishy-washy Vince was at times, but overall he turned out to be incredibly sweet. I am very excited to read the next book, and get Davis’s story.
