The first day she was sitting by herself — I felt sorry for her. After all, it couldn’t be easy wrangling all the testosterone at Wingman Inc as one of the only female office managers.
The second day she literally counted her carrots during break — she had seven by the way, right along with seven sips of her drink in between taking seven tiny little bites of the first carrot.
Now I’m not one to brag, or maybe I am, but math and science fascinate me, so do problems. And this woman screamed puzzle from the way she ducked her head every time anyone looked at her, to the way she counted food and tapped the table when she didn’t think anyone was watching.
I’d like to think I took pity on her that day when, in fact, she was the one that took pity on me and asked if I needed a friend. She assumed I had a learning disability since I’d been staring so damn hard.
Things would have ended there, except, my bosses need someone to test the new Wingman App and since I was the only single guy on the floor — I was nominated, right along with the only single woman, the same one who thinks I need to use my fingers to count.
Apparently rumors of my sexcapades throughout college reached even her ears, because she wants nothing to do with me, which makes beta testing a bitch. I have thirty days to win her over and prove myself to my bosses.
One thing’s for certain, I’m going to have to buy a hell of a lot of carrots.
This book grabbed me from page one, and I was sucked in, could barely put it down, even to go to bed! I loved Finn, and his aunt was hilarious! But not just that, it was all the characters. They all were such a fun group, snarky and seemed like in a good mood for the most part. While I thought that Finn’s friends and co-workers, the former “Pleasure Ponies” were all about getting him set up with Jillian to start with, it seemed maybe I was a bit off when they had the two of them sign up to test out the app separately. However in the end, it all came together and we found out just what their friends had planned, and how it actually did prove that their app worked. All of the double dates they went on ended spectacularly and again hilariously. The secret about Finn was a really big shock, but made when he and Jillian finally did take it all the way so much more satisfying. It was a such an easy read, flowed seamlessly without a lot of extra drama that usually will irritate me in stories. I adored this book so much that I have got to go back and read the rest of the stories in the series. And it reminded me how much I love this author and that I always wait too long before reading more of her books!
