A wallflower gets seduction tips from a playboy athlete—until love changes the rules.

Socially awkward Joellen Bixby has a date every Saturday—with her cat, a pint of ice cream, and fantasies of the way-too-handsome Michael Maddox. She’d give anything to win over the unattainable CEO of her firm, but how can she when she blends in so well with her cubicle? The answer may be closer than she thinks.

Cameron McGregor is a cocky, tattooed Scottish rugby captain who just moved in next door. He’s not Jo’s type—at all—but the notorious playboy is offering to teach the wallflower everything he knows about inspiring desire. Though a lot of women have rumpled Cam’s kilt, Jo is special. Far from the ugly duckling she thinks she is, in Cam’s eyes she’s sharp, funny, and effortlessly sexy. Now, thanks to him, Jo is blooming with confidence and has the man of her dreams within reach.

Unfortunately for Cam, he’s just helped to push the woman of his dreams into the arms of another man—and now he’s in the fight of his life to keep this beauty from getting away.

A few things caught my eye with this book and made me really want to give it a try. I loved the cover, the blurb made me smile and piqued my interest. I've enjoyed books by this author in the past so I knew I wanted to give this book a shot.

Joellen was not quite what I expected her to be. I understand that women doubt themselves far more than they should but I really wanted Joellen to realize her potential sooner. I sympathized with her and her thoughts, and could relate to them, but she had such potential for growth and I don't think she fully reached her potential here.

Cam is exactly what I expected. Sexy, confident and just what Joellen needs even if she doesn't realize it. He's a player, for sure, but he has redeeming qualities and he shows that as he helps Joellen. I would have liked to have been in his headspace for some of this book, to really get a handle on how he felt.

There is a connection between these two. Neither were looking for it, to be honest, and that's usually the best time for what you really need in life to appear. Now, they didn't come together as I thought they would. I won't spoil it, but it definitely took longer than I thought.

There were a few things I didn't *love* about the book. Our heroine is really hard on herself, and I wasn't quite expecting that. I also was surprised at how long her fascination with her boss continued. I did like the writing and the banter between Joellen and Cam. Overall, the book wasn't what I was thinking it would be but I did like it overall.
