An office attraction becomes something more when they're off the clock in this delightful romantic comedy by the USA Today bestselling author of Not the Girl You Marry.

State attorney Bridget Nolan is successful in all aspects of her life—except romance. After breaking up with her longtime boyfriend, she's been slow to reenter the dating scene. To be honest, she has more important things to do like putting bad guys behind bars. But with her brother's wedding right around the corner, she suddenly needs a date and fast. Lucky for Bridget, the legal intern is almost done with his program.

Matt Kido is dumbstruck by Bridget—total love at first sight—but there's one problem. She's totally off-limits while she's his boss. But the moment he no longer reports to her, Matt decides to take a chance. An impulsive decision takes them to Las Vegas where, as the saying goes, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

Unless you put a ring on it.

Someone pinch me! This was sooo good and the only thing I didn't like about it was that it ended. Bridget is my spirit animal even though we have nothing in common. She's the type of woman I wished I could be but always came up short. If we're being honest, I still come up short, but whatever! She's an amazing badass.

"Bridget Nolan had lush auburn hair, piercing gray-blue eyes, cut-glass cheekbones, and a voice that was better than a hand job."

Matt Kido. So, where could I find one like him? He's just been through a bad breakup with a she-devil when he goes and changes up all his plans. The first day of his internship, he sees the fierce and beautiful, Bridget. The same woman whose sworn off all relationships. For good reason...men are shiiit, hah!

Love at first sight...it's a thing people! Especially when it comes to Matt; for he's never seen anything as beautiful than Bridget. Then as fate would have it, the two become work colleagues in the closest way possible-as boss and employee. Dun dun dun. 

The two obviously can't have a relationship because of ethics, blah blah blah. What happens when Matt's internship ends and he's no longer under her (at least not in the way he wants to be, yet.) though?

“The way I see it, we’re both consenting adults. I no longer work for you. And I think you’re attracted to me, too.”

Matty boy wastes no time, y'all! I like that. Herein starts the good stuff. I enjoyed watching Bridget fight hard (but not THAT hard) over her feelings for Matt. It was only a matter of time anyways. The two had the explosive chemistry we all love to read about so much. There was only one thing left to do in the end...

Overall, I was a giddy mess throughout the whole book. This is the type of romance that makes you swoon into Fabio like it's the 1980s. Yum!

About the Author:
USA Today bestselling author Andie J. Christopher writes edgy, funny, sexy contemporary romance featuring heat, humor, and dirty talking heroes that make readers sweat. A graduate of the University of Notre Dame and Stanford Law School, she grew up in a family of voracious readers, and picked up her first romance novel at age twelve when she'd finished reading everything else in her grandmother's house. It was love at first read. It wasn't too long before she started writing her own stories -- her first heroine drank Campari and drove an Alfa Romeo up a winding road to a minor royal's estate in Spain. Andie lives in the Nation's Capital with her French Bulldog, Gus, a stockpile of Campari, and way too many books.
