Olivia Calloway isn’t cut out for the nine-to-five life. She’s a born entrepreneur. She just has to figure out her soul’s true calling—and she’s given herself until the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve to do it. With her trust fund dwindling and only two and a half months to go, she takes an assistant position at prestigious law firm Harris & Harris. The problem is, Olivia’s a terrible employee—incessantly late, forgetful, and clumsy. Not that her gorgeous new boss Garrett Emerson seems to mind. Beautiful, charming Olivia has been on his mind ever since she ran into him, literally, sprinting to the interview. But Olivia’s first big assignment could make or break her job entirely. Can Olivia finally prove herself—or will an unforeseen complication send her back to the drawing board?

I was in the mood for a nice little contemporary romance the other night, and that's exactly what this is, so in that sense I am pretty happy with this book. I'm afraid to say though, I didn't enjoy this as much as I would have hoped.
My main issue, (really it is my only issue) was that It was just too short. There was so much happening with the plot and the characters but there just wasn't enough content to really fit in nicely. It was also very fast paced which in the short book made it feel like it was skimming over a lot of content. It's hard to explain really, but I feel like this would have been much more enjoyable if it were just extended into a full sized novel.
I also felt like I didn't have enough time to really connect with the characters because everything was happening really fast. I also found that the characters were very two dimensional and there wasn't really any depth to them.
I did really like the writing, I felt like it flowed really nicely and there was a good amount of humour throughout. Very reminiscent of Sophie Kinsella's writing.
Even though I didn't enjoy this as much as I had hoped, if you're looking for a really quick holiday read, check this one out. Who knows? You might absolutely love it! honestly, if this book was extended it would be fantastic. If it weren't for the fact it was so short and there was no character growth, I would have loved it.
