f anyone asks, I knew better than to flash my boobs for Mardi Gras beads.
I still don’t know why I did it.
Maybe it was the dare from my two best friends.
Maybe it was the guys on the balcony saying they’d throw Fireball shots with the beads.
Or maybe it was the quiet guy in the corner of that same balcony with piercing gray eyes, wavy dark hair, and a smile so tempting I wanted to climb up there and lick it off his face.
Maybe it was because I never thought I’d see them again.
Not that it matters. Not today.
Because the hotel I manage was finally bought—and the guy who walks in and introduces himself as my new boss is Mr. Tall, Dark, and Silent.
There are many upsides to being single.
Your new boss knowing what your boobs look like?
Not one of them.
The Upside to Being Single is a cute and funny story that didn’t quite do it for me. The synopsis and cover are to die for and the meet cute… perfection.
Unfortunately for me, that’s about all it was. Cute. I feel like more should have happened, but the entire book took place within two weeks, which makes sense as to why we only get an HFN, but I really wanted more from this couple. I’m a lover of the big fall out and the big grand gesture, the big HEA, babies. You get the idea, but that isn’t what we got with this story.
That said, I really did enjoy the characters! I loved how clumsy Mellie was, the girl was a total disaster tripping all over herself and slipping on thin air. I giggle and how much of klutz she was. Even with that she was able to run a hotel all on her own. Jacob was sweet and dealt with her hot mess-ness like a champ and knew what he wanted and went after it.
“He kissed me like a treasure chest with exploring.”
The Upside to Being Single was quick read where a boss and employee with amazing chemistry attempted to dance around each other in battle of wills to keep their relationship non-existent. Although this was a good story, it just didn’t check all of my boxes.
Will The Upside to Being Single, check your boxes??
