Summary: Julia Dorning is a spinster, or at least on the road to becoming one. She has no social life, hates her job, and lives in her parent’s basement with her cat, Charlie.
With the arrival of Jared Moody, the new hire at work, Julia’s mundane life is suddenly turned upside down. Her instant (and totally ridiculous) crush on the new guy causes Julia to finally make some long-overdue changes, in hopes to find a life that includes more than baking and hanging out with Charlie.
But when the biggest and most unexpected change comes, will the new and improved Julia be able to overcome it? Or will she go back to her spinster ways?
My Review: I received this book for a fair and honest review.
There is so much to love about this book. It’s a romance novel that is not full of smut. Let’s face it, one can only handle so much smut! The romance aspect is very believable as well. I can totally see it being played out in real life.
The character of Julia could be anyone we know. It could even be ourself. Let’s face it, not everyone is oozing self esteem (I know I’m guilty of not always having it).
Julia is stuck in a boring job she hates, and living in her parent’s basement all because she hates change. Don’t we all?
This is one of those funny feel good books that make us laugh and totally get lost in the book. I loved seeing the person Julia becomes when she starts to just believe in herself.
