Good morning my dear, naive friend,

I hope you’re enjoying a breakfast of regret and sorrow.

Why?

Because you sent me to work for Dean Harper, aka a control freak in a tailor-made suit. Sure he owns the trendiest restaurants in NYC, but c'mon Jo, his ego makes Kanye West look like the Dalai Lama.

He's the type of guy that only hears the word “no” when it's followed by “don’t stop.”

Working for Dean Harper would be like selling my soul to the devil…and before you say anything, I don’t care if the devil has punch-you-in-the-gut brown eyes and an ass to match. My soul isn’t for sale.

Regretfully yours,
Lily


The Allure of Dean Harper is a full-length standalone romance with overlapping characters from The Allure of Julian Lefray. Both books can be read separately. Chronologically, The Allure of Julian Lefray happens first. 





This book was a hilarious story that brought a couple from enemies to lovers. I think RS Grey writes one of the best banter between characters out there. I find myself so engulfed in her books that I ignore the rest of my life and live in the world she creates!

Dean Harper thinks he is God’s gift to restaurants and women. And he totally is but Lily Black can’t stop herself from trying to prove that fact is false. Lily is full of spark and fire and was a breath of fresh air for heroines. I love when the woman is so strong and opinionated. They instantly hate each other but over time as they work together they realize the other is exactly what they want. They don’t have a lovey dovey relationship. Complete opposite.

I loved the restaurant aspect of this book since I was in the restaurant business for many years. The author did an amazing job with accuracy on how it all worked. It made me miss those days a little.
The Allure of Dean Harper is prime humor and great writing. This is a book you can cuddle up with and let the laughs and characters take you away. I love RS’s writing and loved this book. If I had one complaint, it would that I wish it was longer so I can bask the story for longer. 



I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things...everyday.

I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors are Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I'm a comedy geek and love all things funny. Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.
