Summary
"An office attraction becomes something more when theyʼre off the clock in this delightful romantic comedy. State attorney Bridget Nolan is successful in all aspects of her life-except romance. After breaking up with her longtime boyfriend, sheʼs been slow to reenter the dating scene. To be honest, she has more important things to do, like putting bad guys behind bars. But with her brotherʼs wedding right around the corner, she suddenly needs a date-and fast. Lucky for Bridget, the legal intern is almost done with his program. Matt Kido is dumbstruck by Bridget-total love at first sight-but thereʼs one problem: sheʼs totally off-limits while sheʼs his boss. But the moment he no longer reports to her, Matt decides to take a chance. An impulsive decision takes them to Las Vegas where, as the saying goes, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Unless you put a ring on it"--
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Christopher's uneven follow-up to Not the Girl You Marry begins by cleverly flipping the typical office romance script, but a mid-book trip to Vegas sends the plot off the rails. When perfectionist attorney Bridget Nolan's relationship collapses, she throws herself into her work, only to be assigned a distractingly handsome intern. The hyperprivileged Matt Kido has always been sheltered by his parents' wealth, but he's instantly smitten with his stunning new boss and eager to impress. Though Bridget refuses to acknowledge their chemistry while they work together, their dynamic takes a jarring turn when she accepts Matt's offer to escort her to her brother's Las Vegas wedding after his internship ends. There, inevitably, they get blackout drunk and wake up married. As they wait for the divorce to go through, they use their new relationship status to mess with Matt's cartoonishly judgmental parents and "stick it" to Bridget's one-note jerk of an ex. But the more time they spend together, the deeper they fall for each other. Christopher balances the melodrama and moments of raw emotion with an upbeat tone and honest communication between Matt and Bridget. Readers who can look past the contrived setup will find this a fun, if lopsided, romance. Agent: Courtney Miller-Callihan, Handspun Literary. (Apr.)"
