Janie loves trivia and puts it in every conversation. After discovering her boyfriend with someone else, she is out of place and then she gets fired the same day. Luckily the cute security guard, who she was secretly watching escorted her out and put her in a limo. 

He later offers her a job. There is chemistry between them and they fall fast and hard for each other.

My favourite part of the book was the knitting club, that Janie was a part of. I greatly struggle with the book. I think that the point was for Janie to come across as very smart, but her verbal diarrhoea slows down the story to the point, that I had no idea what is going on. 

While I like the idea behind the story, I didn't like Janie. I think she was meant to come across as quirky and super smart, but I didn't get that vibe. More like the opposite - she was controlled by both guys and had trouble staying in the present.  She likes to escape and disassociate from reality to the point that stuff just happens around her, without her being a part and she just goes with the flow. Not my kind of story.

happy reading,
