(Better Date than Never series, Book #7) 

Career-driven attorney, Jill Parnell, has worked long and hard to become a partner at Corbett, Gray, & Shaw. When the coveted position is given to the boss’s nephew, she does what any intelligent employee would do—attends a colleague’s wedding and schmoozes a high-powered partner at another law firm. 

Her potential new boss has only one condition for her, that she demonstrate a personal life that will support a thriving career. Pretending to have a boyfriend is outside Jill’s comfort zone, but she invites the best man to act the part and Ryan is all-too eager to play her significant other. Sparks fly between them, but she reminds herself she’s only driven to date to get back on the partner track. 

When Jill discovers Ryan is the lawyer who stole her promotion, her charade threatens to implode. But breaking off their pretend relationship could cost her the job of her dreams. And the more she gets to know Ryan, the more she’s tempted to tame the bad boy, and make him her own.

  • Boring

    Social conscious messages and romance novels do not mix. Most people read romance novels to escape real life. Not to be reminded that they don't do enough to help society.
  • Career driven women who tries to balance love and career.

    The story references too much about the law firm. I'm getting bored with the law talk. The story is moving along too slowly. Apparently, there is a lot of people who put work first and marriage or dating second. Jill Has decided a career was most important and is rethinking that decision. A confident woman having insecurities about a man is odd. She has seen love not last and is doubtful that it even exists. Basically, she does not want to pursue a man when her focus is her career. Jill is trying to find a balance between career and dating. The story focused too much on Jill's career. I was more interested in Jill and Ryan. I thought Ryan was a great character. It was okay. Skimmed through the law talk parts of the story. I wish it had been a little more spicy.
