5-star banter makes this light-hearted rom com absolutely fly by – I devoured this in one sitting and did so with a smile on my face the whole time. It’s not a perfect book – the romance was wrapped up WAY too quickly for my liking – but it was exactly what I needed in my life on the day I read it. Sara Ney always writes great dialogue, banter, and snark, which is the heart of this book, and I loved every minute of it.
The story follows Phillip and Spencer, coworkers who have never met before. They work in different departments but a chance encounter in the breakroom leads to a rather unique meet cute that sets the tone for their relationship. When they’re forced to share an office for a week during some renovations, conflict turns to banter which turns into sparks of chemistry. The problem? Phillip is part of a group of friends who have agreed not to date – even wagering their most prized possessions – and our slightly nerdy, analytical hero knows it would be ludicrous to give that all up for a girl he’s known for a matter of days.
Taking place over the course of a week, we get to see this relationship develop from strangers to friends to lovers at lightning speed. It’s the kind of book where you feel like you’re falling for the characters at the same time that they fall for each other. It’s dialogue-based with a light, playful feel that will draw you in. Phillip isn’t the usual romance hero – he’s kinda nerdy, a gentleman with a touch of douchebag in him – and Spencer is an outspoken, blunt heroine whose presence fills a room. Together, they make a great pair. This doesn’t follow the typical romance “formula,” instead moving at its own pace with an understated element of romance. Yes, Phillip and Spencer are the sole focus of the book, but it does take place over the course of a few days and has minimal heat. It’s a quick, fun read that will draw you in and keep you smiling for a few hours – and I think we could all use a little of that in our lives. I received an ARC via Wildfire Marketing Solutions and am voluntarily leaving a review of this playful rom com.
