    3.25 starsThis was just okay The hero came across as very cocky and immature H h have been co workers for two years but she doesn t like him while he has the hots for her So, he manages to get himself assigned to her project starts messaging her as loverboy I just didn t find it very romancey

    This may be a dated story, but some of it still comes across as very futuristic The romance in the story is cute, somewhat unique, and extremely enjoyable Jim is a very over the top character, but his feelings are genuine Lucy portrays the Ice Queen quite well, but I wonder if it covershurt than just the situation with her ex This is one of my go to comfort reads when things really aren t going that great, and it is still as relevant as when it was written.
