Blurb: I was only trying to help a friend. I swear. I was legit asking for a friend who was finally ready to date again.
I knew what she wanted in a man -- smart, funny, ambitious, well-read (no, the sports section doesn't count), and plays a wicked game of badminton.
So I did what any good friend would do. Posted it for her. It seemed like a good idea at the time — I’d weed through the candidates, and bring her my top picks.
But then he responded.
Is it wrong to date the guy I screened for my bestie? Not asking for a friend.
Excerpt: “No. I was just getting the lowdown on office allergies.” He moves closer, leaning against the bar, looking like a tall drink of man. I break out my mental yardstick. Yup, I’m betting he’s over six feet. I’m going with six foot one. Which might even push him to a fifteen on the goes-to-ten babe-o-meter.
“So you’re on drinks detail,” I say, trying to sound all cool and casual, like I’m not busy sizing him up.
Not consumed with checking out his arms. Not occupied admiring his blue eyes. Not tied up enjoying his smile.
He points his thumb at his sternum. “New guy. That means I fetch all the drinks and buy them too. And you? What put you on errand duty?”
“I made my friend snort her drink out her nose.”
He looks impressed. “You officially have the best reason for being on drink detail.”
I preen, enjoying his praise. “Why, thank you. I was hoping to win that contest.”
“What was the snort-inducing remark, may I ask?”
Flashing back, I recall the culprit—my “you need V-time” comment to Peyton—but that’s too personal to share. I give him another one. “I referred to her ex-fiancé by his proper name.”
Clark Kent gives me a curious look. “Is his proper name amusing?”
“Of course. It’s Richard Cranium,” I say, and I wait. Will he pass the test?

"Who knew surrogate dating for a friend would be so fun?"
Amy is quirky, funny, and a general delight. She is full of heart for her friends. She knows how to promote them to others. This is good practice since she is a junior editor and has to learn how to sell ideas to others. Only one problem. She can passionately describe the best qualities of others, never of her own qualities. And so, in a roundabout way, the idea of creating a profile on a dating app for her friend Peyton springs to mind and she uses it to practice self-promotion. Easy- peasy! Right? Then Serendipity steps in as Amy practices and complications of the heart take a turn.
I have fallen in love with Linc! (I am a fickle soul!) He is the latest of the red hot lovers who is kind, loves books, and is a champion at Ping-Pong. Top that with a Clark Kent look and I swooned. You know Amy and Linc are the two parts to make a whole. Never two people met that had so much in common. One problem though. Office romances never work out!
Don't miss this one! Romance is in the air and these two characters need to figure out how to remove the obstacles in their way.
I am voluntarily reviewing this book. Thanks to the author for sharing a copy with me.
