Working on keeping on top of reviews. So I had an open day and decided I’d go ahead and plan a post for it. These two books were so much laugh out loud, as I was driving, I’m sure people in cars around me thought I was crazy.

My new boss has it all.
In spades.

Gorgeous green eyes? Check.Hard-and-sexy body? Check.Intelligence? Check.Success? A big fat billionaire… Check.
Too bad I haven’t started out on the best foot.
My big mouth has already turned him against me, and tempting good looks and success aside, Trent Turner is no peach either. He’s stubborn and thick-headed, and son of a fruitcake, he thinks he knows everything there is to know about the hotel business.
With him running the development of the new Vanderturn New Orleans Hotel and me doing the design, our work relationship is far too intimate for two people who absolutely despise one another.
But that’s not all.
See, he isn’t just my billionaire boss from hell. He’s my new neighbor, too.
Same city.Same building.Same floor.

Trent Turner is my billionaire boss next door.

Holy moly, let’s hope my career—and hormones—can survive.

My Review:

A hilarious story by an author duo that I have a feeling will be a favorite soon. But it was more than just funny, there were really good ideas as well. For instance, Greer’s description of what it is like to be single at a New Year’s Eve party was spot on, exactly the way it feels. Then there was the part that it sounded like Greer was being killed while she watched a certain tv show, even through the wall between her and Trent’s apartment. The people who lived next door to me when I lived in my townhouse probably wondering what was going on whenever I was watching Whose Line Is It Anyway? I mean my dogs hate when I watch that show, they won’t sit on the couch with me because I laugh so much. There was the end though, with some misunderstandings, and I thought I’d be mad at Trent for what happened, but he cleared it up pretty quickly once we heard the rest of the conversation. Which meant then that I was mad at Greer for not confronting him about it.

My only big issue with this was the female narrator paused so much and sometimes at weird spots, and read so slow that I had to speed up her narration. But I didn’t feel like messing with it back and forth on chapters to keep the male narrator on regular speed, so I had to get used to him a little fast, and that wasn’t the most ideal. In the end though this book was hilarious and I can’t wait to read/listen to more in this series or other books by this author duo.

A wrong number is supposed to be just that—a wrong number.
Delete. Done.
Do not continue to text. Do not flirt.
A wrong number shouldn’t be the first person on your mind in the morning, or the last at night…and you’re definitely not supposed to talk them into buying a baby goat.
Because that would be weird.
When Zach Hastings and I get into a wrong-number mix-up, we don’t follow the rules. We keep texting and flirting, because he’s wicked funny and perfectly nerdy and a wonderful distraction.
I’m not looking for love, and Zach definitely had the wrong number.
But maybe…
Maybe he’s the right guy.

My Review:

Okay, so the first book in this post was hilarious, but this one, oh my gosh, I just about died sometimes from how much I was laughing! But again, there was more than the hilariousness. In fact, I kind of just want to find a guy to text with like this. Even if we never meet. It seems like I can’t even find a guy to carry on for more than a sentence or two on a dating app, even when they have a great opening liner/question, that’s it. The conversation fizzles out so quickly. I mean one part in the book talked about how you might not be as bold saying things as you are with texting, which makes a lot of sense. Of course as I continued listening, I just realized that these types of guys only exist in romantic fiction. Right? There aren’t really guys that witty out there, are there? 🙁

I also loved the HP shout-out. Especially Hufflepuff for the win, and the whole Slytherin joke with Zach’s boxers. lol Made me totally think of this:

Now just as with the first one, I had to give it a 4.5 instead of a full 5 stars because the misunderstanding made me so mad! The fact that she immediately suspected him instead of immediately confronting him! However it did make the shenanigans at the end to win him back even more hilariously perfect I guess. I also adored Zach’s family, except his brother Shep, who I think gets his own story later in the series, and I’ll see if he can be redeemed! And of course, who doesn’t adore a baby goat? Marshmallow was one of the cutest parts of the story as well!
