He’s the resident office flirt. I’m the quirky Pride & Prejudice-loving editor who uses big words and dresses like the world’s non-sexiest librarian.
We have nothing in common.
And we’re competitors for the same job.
Game on, right? May the best person win and all that? Fine by me. I’m happy to hold him at arms’ length forever.
And considering I’m practically the only woman in the office he’s never flirted with, he’s obviously happy to do the same.
But when we’re stuck overnight in our office building thanks to an earthquake-induced landslide (don’t worry, we’re totally fine), things between us start to change.
I begin to realize that Connor isn’t actually the jerk I thought he was–the kind who leads women on, just like my ex.
And when he offers to attend my ex’s wedding as my fake boyfriend, things get even more interesting. Especially when he gives me that much-too-chaste kiss…
But I can’t fall for him. That would be repeating the same mistake, just with a different guy.
Tell that to my dumb heart, though–the one that seems to think Connor Bryant is my Mr. Darcy.
