Title: So That Happened
Series: An Accidental Romantic Comedy
Author: Katie Bailey
Release Date: June 3rd, 2022
I spent the night with a hot, grumpy stranger in an airport hotel.
No, not like that. Get your mind out of the gutter. It was just sleeping. And… maybe a little cuddling.
Long story short, I embarrassed the heck out of myself. But at least I never have to see him again.
Except the universe is clearly out to get me, because Monday morning, I arrive at my new job and who’s the first person I see?
Hot stranger himself: Liam Donovan.
AKA my new boss.
AKA Annie, you are so freaking screwed.
While the HR rulebook doesn’t explicitly say you can’t share a bed with your boss, I can read between the lines. And I need this job.
Which is why I have to pretend that night never happened. Luckily for me, sexy as Liam—excuse me, Mr. Donovan—is, he’s surly, rude and totally not my type.
Or so I keep telling myself.
Because I’m starting to think there’s a warm, gooey cinnamon roll with extra frosting lurking beneath that impressive, muscular form.
I promised I’d never choose between my career and love.
But when a scandal threatens to break, that promise could prove impossible to keep…
An enjoyable rom-com perfect for summer reading! Annie has a lot going on. After her flight is delayed, she is forced to stay at an airport hotel, in the same room as a hot, grumpy stranger. Not that anything happened except sleeping…and maybe some cuddling. Needless to say, it was an embarrassing time, at least she never has to see him again. Except for when she arrives at her brand new job and who is her new boss? The same stranger from the flight, Liam Donovan. But she needs the job, so she needs to pretend that the night never happened. Good thing that Liam, or Mr. Donovan, is surly, rude, and definitely not her type. Except there seems to be a warm, gooey center under all the sternness and muscles. But Annie has promised herself that she will never choose between her career and love, and when scandal threatens to break that promise, what will she choose?
This was really fun! I will admit, some of the situational humor leaned towards awkwardness, so there were some points where I was feeling the second-hand embarrassment. However, I am particularly sensitive to second-hand embarrassment and I did find a lot of it pretty funny! It was overall lighthearted and very fun to read. I loved the dynamic between the Donovan siblings, they teased and supported one another. I really enjoyed reading about them all, especially Legs! She was adorable and so funny! I loved how she had everyone wrapped around her finger. I also appreciated Annie’s determination and focus. She was awkward and a bit all over the place in her head, but I definitely saw some people I knew in her and was very endearing. I also thought Liam was so sweet, I love the grumpy outside and soft inside!
I enjoyed reading this! It definitely feels like a summer read, perfect for warm lazy days! It was also really fun to see cameos of some of the characters from the other books! It is a close-door romance, and very enjoyable!
