A Friendly Flirtation by Christine Warner

Book Description

Allison Hall is fed up with being a social outcast. Even at the tech company where she works for her brother and his best friend, Jared, she's the invisible nerdy girl. What she needs is confidence—and that requires a makeover and dating tips. And she knows just the man to help…

Jared Esterly is shocked when Allison asks for his assistance and turns her down, knowing that her brother—his business partner and best friend, Nick—would kill him if he dated her, even if it is just for practice. But when Al’s attempt to make changes on her own fails spectacularly, Jared reluctantly steps in. Things heat up quickly, and soon lessons move from the salon to the bedroom.

When overprotective big-brother Nick discovers Jared is dating Allison, their friendship and business partnership sour. Allison, consumed by guilt, must make a choice: stay with Jared, even though that means ruining his friendship with Nick and possibly his career, or leave the one man who sets her on fire.

Trying to become seen as more than the nerdy/geeky invisible girl, Allison Hall asks her brother's best friend, Jared Esterly (and her boss), to help her with a makeover and some dating tips.   Big brother doesn't like finding out that his best friend is "dating" his baby sister and it causes a rift between the best friends and business partners.  Allison feels guilty about causing said rift and ends her "friendship" with Jared and resigns from her job.  Jared sees Allison on a date with another man (two weeks later...) and SUDDENLY realizes that he is madly in love with her and can't live without her.  So he "fights" for her with her brother, her "date", and her job.  Yay.... =/

Blah, Blah, Blah.....

I feel like I've read this book a million times before, but just better... Everything felt forced and awkward in this book so, in turn, that made me fell awkward reading it.  I skimmed through a lot of this book without much care.

Rating: 2 out of 5
