There is so much to love about this book! One of the best holiday romances worth reading.
I say this all the time. There’s just something extra special about finding a new book that I love that’s written by a new author to me. Or in this case, written by an author duo that I hadn’t read before.
Well this definitely won’t be my last book from Lauren Runow and Jeannine Colette.
Charming Co-Worker is the perfect Christmas romance book to get you in the holiday spirit (but it could honestly be read any time of year).
It’s already made my Best Christmas Romance Books list!
Katie has been pining for her boss for the last two years but this year she’s finally going to make her move and nab him as the best Christmas present ever.
But her moves fall flat and she realizes that she has to step up her holiday vixen ways. Eager to help her is her co-worker, Hunter. He offers to start fake dating her with the plan to gain her boss’ attention with a bit of jealousy, having Hunter as her new boyfriend.
But you know how fake relationships go in romance books…
Sure there’s often a typical trajectory for fake relationship stories where the line between fake and real start to blur but this book still felt fresh and authentic.
These authors crafted the BEST characters. I really liked Katie. She wasn’t portrayed as this sad or hopeless case, but was a really fun, awesome woman whom at least one man noticed.
And then there is Hunter…As far as book boyfriends go, he’s tops. I seriously loved everything about this guy.
The best part about him? He was a man who NOTICED. He and Katie had become friends over the last two years working together and he wasn’t shy on showing her just how well he knew her.
He seriously was this seriously sexy and snarky guy on the outside with such a kind and thoughtful heart on the inside.
The chemistry and connection between these two felt so real and authentic right from the start. You could tell they had a real friendship built on mutual humor and witty puns and their friendship had the perfect slow burn to something more.
I loved this book and plan to check out other books in their Zodiac series. Consider this a must read romance book to reread every Christmas season!
