The Allure of Julian Lefray
My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐
Subject: Justin Timberlake Nudes!
Lily, you predictable perv. I knew you’d open this email faster if I tempted you with a glimpse of JT’s “PP”. Well, put your pants back on and grab some bubbly because I have much better news to share.I GOT A JOB!As of tomorrow, I’ll be the new executive assistant at Lorena Lefray Designs. I am SO excited, but there’s one itty bitty problem: I won’t be Lorena’s assistant. I’ll be working for her older brother, Julian.
I know what you’re thinking- “But Jo, what’s the problem?”
Google him. Now. He’s the man in the fitted navy suit whose face reminds you that there’s hope yet for this cruel, ugly world. Keep scrolling…Do you see those dimples? Yup. That’s the Julian Lefray I will be reporting to tomorrow morning.
Lord, help us all…
This was a good forbidden romance. Every chapter was a “will they or won’t they?” Jo was a small town girl who I loved immediately and Julian was a good love interest. He actually cared about Jo and her interest. Since they started off as friends you got to see their relationship grow and become something more.
There is chemistry between these two the instant they see meet. However, since they are now working together, a relationship is out of the question. They become friends who are attracted to each other and although they do have a few close calls, Jo resists the temptation for fear of losing her job.
The best part about this book was the comedy. R.S. Grey can write a romcom like no one’s business. There were times that I couldn’t help laughing my ass off. Which by the way, scares your coworkers when you are all at lunch. The jokes and banter are what made this book.
The reason for my rating was because I felt like it was pretty slow moving. I also expected more for the ending. It had a quite abrupt ending actually. I wanted to see more, maybe a tiny epilogue?
It was good and very funny, It was just nothing that wowed me. There is another book following Dean and Lily, but I don’t think I will be picking that one up.
