I really wanted to like this one more than I actually did. It was kind of disappointing. I just thought everything happened so quickly and I had a harder time connecting to the characters.

However, it was still cute and fun.

xThis book loses major points for all the cheesy Irish sayings. I guess I can't really say with certainty that sexy Irish guys in their 30s don't go around saying "lass" and other cheesy Irish terms at every turn, but I just didn't buy it here. Jack was more like an Irish grandfather than a sexy young Irish man and that definitely took away from the story.

BUT, the story still has its merits. Jenna has been seeing the total loser Jax for a year, despite the fact that they're not really dating, that he sleeps with other women, and that he gave her HPV. While I don't totally get it myself, I know friends in similar situations so props to Cara Lockwood for making a realistic crappy relationship. After a breakup with Jax (one of many) Jenna texts him for one last night together, but ends up texting her sexy boss JACK who, after getting the text, realizes one of his fantasies has come true, goes over, has steamy sexy with Jenna, and, because he's that guy, falls really hard for her and practically proposes.

The guy being way more into the romance than the girl was a nice change of pace, but it was still kind of heavy-handed. Plus, this is one of those things that seems sexy, but when you really think about it maybe it isn't. Yes, Jack was a nice guy, but when you think about it, what boss not only accepts an employee, who he's never even flirted with, offer for sex, but knows her address off the top of his head and then goes over in the middle of the night to get laid?

However, when you suspend disbelief the story ends up being ok. Jack and Jenna have chemistry and their relationship is sweet. Plus, Jenna is a good character on her own which certainly helps. Their work together at an ad agency was very much in the background, but still interesting.

In this sexy story, Jenna has been in an on-again off-again sexual relationship with Jax but catching him cheating, again, is the last straw. Well, until she is drunk and texts him for one last booty call. When her boss Jack shows up instead she realizes she made a mistake but the fact that Jack came calling shows he's more interested in her than she thought. But is having an office affair with her boss the best way to move on? And what will she do if Jax comes crawling back to her again?

There's not a lot of character development in this novella but we do realize pretty early on that Jenna and Jax have a fairly equal opportunity relationship but not one that's going to have any staying power and she's finally wising up to that. I liked Jack's character and that he doesn't take advantage of Jenna when she drunk texts him, waiting until she's sober before letting things progress. The sex scenes are pretty good, and Jack is definitely a much worthier suitor than Jax ever was, a fact that strikes Jenna very quickly. The difficulties in having a secret affair with someone you work with are definitely evident, though I thought the threat of HR intervening was a bit overdone. Jack comes across as a real sweetheart overall, and it was a quick and sexy read. 3 stars.

This was a very cute, fun and short read. Jenna has been stuck in a loop of sex, breakups and getting back together with Jax for the last year, and she is coming off the latest breakup as the story opens. Jax is good in bed but fails at pretty much everything else in life- yet she can't seem to break the cycle. Drowning her sorrows in vodka with her best friend, Jenna decides to text him to come over for one last bit of fun before kicking him to the curb but drunk texts her boss Jack instead.

Jack is an Irish hottie complete with black hair, blue eyes and that panty-melting accent. He has been subtly flirting with Jenna for months but she seems oblivious to it. When he receives her text, he knows it is likely a mistake but decides to take a chance anyway, no matter that he is her boss.

From there, things are a little bit hot, a little bit sweet and a lot of confusion due to inadequate communication. As I mentioned above, this is a novella spanning the course of a month so there is a bit of insta-love as well but all in all it was an enjoyable quick read.

**I received an ARC for an honest review.**

This is a quick and sexy read, but it felt a bit lacking for me in a lot of areas. I know that this was meant to be a fast pace novella, but I just never felt the connection with the two characters. I felt that the way things started out was a bit of a reach, but I did end up enjoying the story overall.

I just felt that a little more time could have been taken in cultivating the relationship between Jack and Jenna, mostly from the past. There was mention office flirtation and stuff but it just wasn't enough for me. I also thought that there could have been a little bit more of a separation between the two names of the men in Jenna's life, Jax and Jack were just too much at times and cause a bit of confusion.

This little novella just didn't do it for me, but that does not mean it isn't for you or someone you know.
