Book Review: Junk Mail

Today I have a rheumatology appointment and then Lucy has speech right after her nap so we'll see how cooperative she is. Oh, and I'm prepping for a colonoscopy beginning at noon today. It should be AWESOME. How I'm going to do this during Lucy's speech therapy, I have no idea. This week is going to be bananas, and I think I mentioned that yesterday, but I feel so worried and I don't know why. Well, I'm a little worried about my procedures this week but honestly, they are so routine there's no reason to be worried.

Sometimes I'm in the mood for a short read, something fluffy I can whip through to break up the heavier stuff I'm likely reading on the side. Thankfully, Facebook ads never let me down.

Junk Mail - Kendall Ryan

It all started with a sexy selfie.
Texted to the wrong number. 
Not my finest moment—but I have nothing to be ashamed of.
She thought I was no better, and I quote, than the knuckle-dragging douche-bags she was never dating again.
It was a stupid dare from a girl I’d met online, but since she’d given me a fake number, I didn’t feel bad that my interests were suddenly focused elsewhere—on the fiery and sharp-tongued, Peyton that I found myself sparring with over text for the rest of the evening.
The following day, my case of mistaken identity came back to bite me in the banana.
When I strolled into the office, I was introduced to Peyton as the new client I needed to win over. The Peyton , in case you're not tracking.
And let’s just say she had my full attention.
Brains? Check. 
Beauty? Oh yeah. 
And the best part? She hated me on sight. 
Dear God, do I love a challenge. 
Let the games begin. 

I am a big fan of Kendall Ryan and she's one of those authors I recommend when someone is looking for a quick book that's good and easy, and this is in that group. The book only comes in at 287 pages but margins are generous and the print seems a bit bigger so you honest could fly through this book in a day if you wanted to.

We have Josh, who definitely isn't a play-boy/douchebag type (which I really appreciate because I'm getting kind of tired of that trope in romance books), he's a decent guy who happens to be on a dating website when the discussion of sending "a picture" comes up. He puts some thought into it and it turns out he sends it to the wrong number.

In fact, he sends it to Peyton. Peyton is the client he is meeting the next day to work on a collaboration. Peyton realizes it right away, then Josh does, and everything gets incredibly awkward in the cutest possible way. The best part is that they are attracted to each other immediately, outside of his impressive photo, and it takes off from there.

The description says she hated him on sight? No. It's definitely not that way at all, it's just incredibly awkward so if you're looking for a book where the guy has to REALLY win her over? This isn't for you because she very much wants to ride the pony, it's just weird to basically have sex with your boss/business partner.

Overall? I really enjoyed this and it was a quick read to fill my day with. It's light, it's funny, it's sweet, it has steamy moments, it has a cute ending, it's basically everything you want in a light romance. I'd add this to your summer reading list.
