Blurb: I was only trying to help a friend. I swear. I was legit asking for a friend who was finally ready to date again.
I knew what she wanted in a man -- smart, funny, ambitious, well-read (no, the sports section doesn't count), and plays a wicked game of badminton.
So I did what any good friend would do. Posted it for her. It seemed like a good idea at the time — I’d weed through the candidates, and bring her my top picks.
But then he responded.
Is it wrong to date the guy I screened for my bestie? Not asking for a friend.
Excerpt: “No. I was just getting the lowdown on office allergies.” He moves closer, leaning against the bar, looking like a tall drink of man. I break out my mental yardstick. Yup, I’m betting he’s over six feet. I’m going with six foot one. Which might even push him to a fifteen on the goes-to-ten babe-o-meter.
“So you’re on drinks detail,” I say, trying to sound all cool and casual, like I’m not busy sizing him up.
Not consumed with checking out his arms. Not occupied admiring his blue eyes. Not tied up enjoying his smile.
He points his thumb at his sternum. “New guy. That means I fetch all the drinks and buy them too. And you? What put you on errand duty?”
“I made my friend snort her drink out her nose.”
He looks impressed. “You officially have the best reason for being on drink detail.”
I preen, enjoying his praise. “Why, thank you. I was hoping to win that contest.”
“What was the snort-inducing remark, may I ask?”
Flashing back, I recall the culprit—my “you need V-time” comment to Peyton—but that’s too personal to share. I give him another one. “I referred to her ex-fiancé by his proper name.”
Clark Kent gives me a curious look. “Is his proper name amusing?”
“Of course. It’s Richard Cranium,” I say, and I wait. Will he pass the test?


Totally love this story of an office romance that isn't suppose to be. When two people have the intelligence and vocabulary of those that just make you piss yourself laughing you know it's a good book. I will say this when I read this in bed while my husband was trying to sleep he kicked me out because I was laughing so hard at it. Don't get me wrong I did find some sadness just because it's hard not to but in the fun this best friend trying to date to get her friend out of a funk kind of way. I want a circle of friend like these in this story. And let's not forget the Superman of the story who has a brilliant mind of his own. However can two people who have minds that are out of this world become a true love story or will one be knocked of their pedestal?
