I seriously wish this was a full-length book and not a novella, because it was so much fun from start to finish! This Bro Code series has been filled with playful banter and lots of laughs, but The Setup has got to be my favorite. We see a whole new side of Finn as he meets his match in the sassy, curvy Jillian from the Wingmen office. It wraps up the series perfectly and stays light, moving quickly and yielding many laughs along the way.
The story follows Finn, the last Wingman standing. He’s just starting work at the Wingmen, Inc. office and is paired up with Jillian, the office manager, for his first assignment. These two spend time together while testing out a new dating app, and somewhere along the way they forget all about the other people they’re matched with. The chemistry between them is on fire and becomes impossible to ignore as Finn finally meets a woman who makes him want more.
I really loved getting to know Finn better, and Jillian is such a great fit for him. There’s a surprise reveal in the story that was a refreshing twist, and I think this would’ve made an awesome full-length book. This moves at lightning speed and definitely could’ve benefited from more time to breath, but the story is a whole lot of fun. It really does pack a punch for a novella though, and caps off the series on a high note. If you’re looking for something quick, fun, and sexy, you can’t go wrong with The Setup.
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 Wingmen 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 Wingmen 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.
