My Rating:

Book Blurb: When Jack proposes to Beth at the end of a holiday romance, she doesn't think twice--she knows he's The One. But then Jack walks out soon after their return, with no explanation, no nothing. 
Eight years on and Beth finds a fantastic new job--working for Jack. She could definitely do without having to face him everyday, but then shecan't do without the job... 
As the two of them are forced to spend time together, Beth unravels the mystery of Jack's disappearance. Is there too much baggage for them to try again--or could they finally be in the right place at the right time?

My Thoughts: This book was hilarious! I don't get to read chick-lit as much as I used too and I really enjoyed getting in touch with this genre again. Jack and Beth were both fun characters. Jack being the "Big Bad Scary Boss", when you meet him as a reader he just seems so mellow.

When you start the book you know where its going of coarse. Beth is almost engaged to a man named Marcus who would like her to just be a stay at home wife, while Beth has other ideas. She wants to see the world. She just can't in vision herself in that other life. So, when the family needs money due to her father's motorcycle accident, she decides to try and get a job at Big Outdoors where she will get to travel to different places. This is when she sees Jack again. After purposing to her 8 years earlier and then leaving her right before the wedding, Jack is looking forward to this interview, however Beth goes into it with a blind eye, thinking she is being interviewed by a woman.

This then starts a whirlwind romance as they like to call it. Jack wants Beth, Beth wants Jack, but no one is acting on it. So let the tension build between the two as Beth struts Marcus in front of Jack and Jack struts Camilla in front of Beth. Then, the two get stranded alone on a vacation spot they are checking out together.

I recommend this book to any of my readers who like chick-lit, a funny read, or a clean romance. This was a fun book!
