Mine to five has everything I look for in a book. Melaine and Matthew have great chemistry. The romance started with a bang and the love grew. Plus the ended was totally swoon-worthy. Sigh. I listened to this via audible and the narrator is great.

Melanie has been given her big break at last. Her dream job is only a day away. Unfortnelty her love life is about to take a dive. The professor she's dating has a thing about dating his students. Unknown to Melanie she isn't the only one catching his

Great story and a fun rom-com. Melanie and Matthew were such a great couple and loved them so much. So cute together. They may have met in an unconventional way but watching them realize that they were actually meant to be was so good to watch. Their chemistry was really good and the storyline was good. You won’t be disappointed in reading this book. It was a quick read with great characters.

After a really devastating day all Melanie wants to do is have a few drinks and have a little pity party for one, so she can wake up the next day and kick some butt during her first day of work. Then she happens upon a sexy stranger that shakes her out of her bad mood, and treats her to a night she'll never forget... one she will just tuck away as a secret night of fun!

That is until she shows up for her first day of work the next day, and realizes her new boss is none other than her partner
I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a short book and a quick read. I won a kindle edition of this book for a goodreads giveaway, but this review is 100% my own opinion.

After learning that her boyfriend has been keeping company with other women, Melanie drowns her sorrows at a bar and starts a conversation with Matthew, a hot hunk who, unbeknownst to her, just happens to be her new boss at a successful advertising agency, the kind of job she has worked very hard to land. To say that “sparks fly” is the understatement of the year! Their biggest challenge is to keep cool at work and not let their enormous attraction for each other interfere with their jobs.

I really really liked this novella and Tara September yet again wrote a beautiful lovestory about a very swoon worthy hero, Matthew Ryans and a strong, smart woman, Melanie Thomas who in the midst of a very difficult time in their lives find friendship and love in each other.

“Two strangers clinging to each other’s company and comfort—one of those New York moments.”

After a bad breakup with her boyfriend of two years and the day before she starts her dream job Melanie has a sexy hook-up with a

Melanie is looking forward to the holidays with her boyfriend. Him, not so much. His new interest in life - other women. She's so upset when he stands her up that she spills her story to a complete stranger in a bar, where she consumes mass quantities of tequila. The next morning, she does the walk of shame, and has to really hustle to be at work on time. it's the first day of her new job, and guess who her new boss is? Yep, the complete stranger in a bar. When they recover from the shock, they ...more

Mine to Five is an enjoyable and fun read with wonderful characters, a funny storyline, enjoyable plot, and a steamy romance. The primary characters are Melanie and Matthew and the unexpectantly meet a bar and end up sharing their woes and disillusions. Much to their surprise the next day, they find out Melanie is Matthews new assistant and he is her boss. How will their attraction progress with this new situation? I recommend this fun Romantic-Comedy read.

If you want a book that will have youlaughing out loudand leave you giggling and smiling like a Cheshire Cat then this is the book for you.

The chemistry is electric and the banter is witty and flows naturally and once you add in the secondary characters you get the perfect rom com.

I won this ebook in a Goodreads Giveaway. Thank you. I believe my review falls around a 3.5. It was a cute short book with a sweet female lead character. The book jumped ahead at times, skimming over storyline items.

At first I liked the lead male character, but toward the end he hinted at controlling and protective in an uncomfortable way. Made me cringe.

But a cute, quick read.

omanceI won this ebook in a Goodreads Giveaway. Good romance set in an advertising agency. The book seems to make light of the dangers of sexual harassment suits in business. There were some explicit sexual scenes at the end of the book, but I enjoyed the story.

Couldn't put the book down once I started reading it. It was a cute office love story that was a fast read. Loved that the main character Mel was made out to be strong willed character who wanted to succeed in business and thought about that just as much as her love with Matthew.

I loved this book. Imagine sneaking out of your one night stand’s apartment only to walk into his office two hours later as his new assistant? Matthew and Melanie were a great couple, I loved how they clicked. I want more of them, I wish this was a series.

This was a fun read! The characters are loveable and fast paced. The characters, Melanie and Matthew, meet at a bar and the next day they find out Matthew is her boss. There's chemistry and funny dialogue, you won't be disappointed! I won this ARC in exchange for my review.
