Recipe for a Boston Classic Cocktail: one part finance geek, one part starving actor, two shots of stubborn and a healthy squeeze of passion. Shake well and serve in a vintage glass.
When Kate Bishop walks into Boston’s famous Bull and Finch pub, all she’s looking for is one guy from her investment firm that she can trust to have her back—a tall order. With a salesman at her side, maybe stage fright won’t paralyze her completely when she presents her meticulously prepared research to clients. And maybe she can save her job.
Romance is the last thing on her to-do list, but a meet-cute with a Shakespeare-quoting bartender has her speculating on the value of diversifying her life portfolio.
Will Talbot is not a fan of the slick financiers who cram into his bar after each day’s closing bell. With their calls for Harvey Wallbangers and their Hermès ties, they’re all the same.
Except for a certain beautiful, buttoned-up brunette with fire in her eyes and a storm in her heart. They’re totally wrong for each other. He should be focusing on his upcoming audition, not coaching Kate on how to act like she’s a bona fide member of the Gordon Gekko club.
Problem is, they can’t seem to stay away from each other.
The course of true love never did run smooth, but in this 1980’s sweet-and-sexy rom-com, returns on love can’t be measured on the S&P 500.
I received this ebook for an honest review from the author. Thank you!
What I’m Looking For is the first book in the series Boston Classics by Karen Grey. This is the first book that I read by Karen Gray and I enjoyed it. What I’m Looking For is the story of Kate and Will, two nerds.
Kate is nerd finance and she works in man’s world. After a bad relationship, she now focuses on her career and her goals. She doesn’t want a relationship but when she meets a Will for the first time, she was attracted to him and was interested in this guy who talks in quotes from Shakespeare.
Will was a good looking actor and part-time bartender and Shakespeare’s nerd. He loves to play in the theatre. Will like Kate doesn’t want a relationship and for him is important his work. Will is intrigued by Kate and he wants to know more about her, so he invited her to a date. They had fun together and decided to be friends with benefits. Both of them had a busy schedule but they made time to see each other and to have fun together. They developed feelings for each other and they become more.
I really enjoyed the journey of Kate and Will. Kate and Will were great characters and really liked to see them grow and to communicate their feelings. It was fun to remember that don’t always exist cellphones and internet or text messages. What I’m Lookin For by Karen Gray was a funny and steamy romance.
