Release Day Blitz: The Design by RS Grey

Author: RS Grey
Five minutes until the interview begins. 
Fresh on the heels of her college graduation, Cameron Heart has landed an interview at a prestigious architecture firm.

Four minutes until the interview. 
She knows she’s only there because the owner, Grayson Cole, is her older sister’s friend.

Three minutes. 
For the last seven years, Grayson has been the most intimidating man Cammie has ever had the pleasure, or displeasure, of being around.

Two Minutes. 
But the job opportunity is too good to pass up. So, Cammie will have to ignore the fact that Grayson is handsome enough to have his own national holiday. 

After all, she shouldn't feel that way about her new boss. And, he will be her new boss.
“I’m not scared of you,” I said with a confident smile.

“Perhaps we should fix that, Ms. Heart. Close the door.”

Easily....easily one of the funniest books I've read this year. I love an author that has some good wit and banter in a book, one that can make you actually laugh out loud. The Duet and The Design did that for me. While these are both standalone books, I read them both back to back and really enjoyed the continuity of the story. Cammie and Brooklyn are two sisters with shenanigans and BIG personalities. HUGE. 

I really enjoyed Grayson as a caring and giving man. Grayson is a quiet, brooding and very secretive man.....until Cammie doesn't respect his personal space or bother with supposed 'rules'. I actually laughed at the times where she pretty much said, you 'pretend' you don't want me....but I know the truth! She was very strong and never backed down. She knew he wanted her and she was going to make him accept it and realize it...but she had her own agenda as well.

With goals in mind, Cammie makes some decisions that benefit her....but they most certainly hurt her as well. Without looking out for the 'long term' effects of her decisions, she has a lot coming her way. Some of her actions were a little off-putting, a little selfish, but she owned her decisions. Cammie's actions put Grayson into some very uncomfortable positions at times, but also made him own up to his feelings for her. Their dynamic was really neat to read and I enjoyed how their story finally unfolded.

A very strong heroine and a very determined Hero....nothing can go wrong, right? Yep. Exactly! So you have headstrong and handsome versus sexy and stubborn. It made for some rather funny discussions, but awkward situations. This was a sweet and easy read, and I really enjoyed it. I would recommend this book to anyone that wanted a quick read with a lot of laughs and a sweet HEA. 
*An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review*

I paused just outside of the front doors and took a deep breath, trying to get my bearings. I was twenty minutes early for my interview. My outfit was still wrinkle-free. My pad-folio was filled with extra copies of my resume and reference letters, and I’d rehearsed every possible question that Grayson Cole would ask:

Greatest weakness? My inability to settle for anything less than what I deserve. I’m stubborn and persistent.

The honest answer? My inability to overcome my schoolgirl crush on you even though you’re a self-righteous ass.

I would NOT be giving him the honest answer.

I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way, I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things... everyday. I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors include Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I'm a comedy geek and love all things "funny". Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.
