One daring to-do list and a crash course in flirtation turn a Type A overachiever’s world upside down.

When her flailing department lands on the university’s chopping block, Professor Naya Turner’s friends convince her to shed her frumpy cardigan for an evening on the town. For one night her focus will stray from her demanding job and she’ll tackle a new kind of to-do list. When she meets a charming stranger in town on business, he presents the perfect opportunity to check off the items on her list. Let the guy buy her a drink. Check. Try something new. Check. A no-strings-attached hookup. Check…almost.

Jake makes her laugh and challenges Naya to rebuild her confidence, which was left toppled by her abusive ex-boyfriend. Soon she’s flirting with the chance at a more serious romantic relationship—except nothing can be that easy. The complicated strings around her dating Jake might destroy her career.

Naya has two options. She can protect her professional reputation and return to her old life or she can flirt with the unknown and stay with the person who makes her feel like she’s finally living again.


Rating: 5 out of 5.

Spoiler Free Review

This book was the perfect combination between sweet romance and serious romance and I loved reading every second of it. The romance between our hero and heroine Naya and Jake was absolutely sweet to read and it was amazing to read the way they connected so well.

Both Naya Turner and Jake Shaw have to deal with the people in their past that had led them to be closed off so when Naya’s friends, Felicia and Aaron convince her to create a list of “To-Do’s”, Naya is pushed to check it off. The first one: having a one night stand. Naya is a professor and Jake is a consultant and both of them connect with their own nerdy creativity that shows the instead attraction toward each other.

I gave this book a five star rating for the way it showed that romance isn’t always all about the cheesy moments. However, while there were the adorable cheesy one-liners, it was nice to see the hard work they put into to really develop their relationship. They both weren’t looking for anything serious but the instant attraction the first time they met was amazing and the banter that they experienced that day made me fall in love with both Naya and Jake.

They were both really understanding toward each other’s past when they finally told each other and it wasn’t like the typical, “Your past is bad and I can’t like you anymore” but rather a “I will be by your side” moment between the two. Even though their work got in the way a few times they didn’t let that bother them too much and worked it out no matter the situation.

I love that when they were having difficult times, it was actually Naya that groveled to earn Jake’s love back and that instead of our hero groveling for the love of our heroine, it was our heroine groveling to our hero. I feel like it was well written when Naya was trying to win Jake back and how even when Jake was attempting to ignore Naya, he still came to her rescue when she was caught in a sad and tough situation. That was something that showed how much they loved each other and how much they believed and trusted each other.

I have absolutely fell in love with both Naya and Jake and I’m so happy to have been able to receive the ARC for this book.

I hope you guys have a great day, please like and comment down below if you enjoyed this book as well or if you plan on reading it!
