The Rule Book by Jennifer Blackwood (Book Review)

5 of 5

ARC provided for an honest review through NetGalley.


Wow, where do I begin!? I absolutely LOVED this book. The story is captivating and refreshing. The characters are fun, well-developed and entertaining. The dialogue/banter is HILARIOUS! I definitely caught myself grinning and laughing out loud – a lot.

Lainey is a sweet, smart and selfless woman. She is hilarious. She says anything and everything that comes to mind out loud which makes for some seriously funny and awkward situations. I was so entertained by her. She is such a likeable character! Her back story is very believable and relatable. She worked hard to get a college education and found a job that made decent money to help support her mother, who is battling cancer. Lainey went without many “perks” (no online shopping, no sexy shoes, no expensive lunches) in her life to make sure her mother’s hospital bills were paid for, even if it meant paying the bill off a little at a time.

Brogan is a smart and hardworking man who follows his strict rule book, written for his employees, to run a smooth and successful business, Starr Media. He is focused on running a tight ship and creating a successful business. He won’t let anything get in his way…until a sexy and smart-mouthed woman, Lainey, is hired and calls him the “antichrist”.

The opposites attract theme with the hot, well-off business man and the sweet and honest girl making her way in the world is thrilling! I loved every moment and would have devoured this whole book in one sitting if I didn’t stop to savor every so often. I did not want this book to end!

Looking for a fun and thrilling romance book that will make you laugh, swoon and cry!? You have to read this. I am adding this one to my favorites list of 2016.
