Book Review! Mine to Five by Tara September

Mine to Five by Tara September
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: October 30, 2019
Publisher: Plus it Up

'Tis the season for an office romance!

Working beyond nine to five and barely getting by, Melanie Thomas is eager to celebrate the impending holiday season and to toast the start of her dream marketing job over drinks with her boyfriend. Unfortunately, he has different plans—like seeing other women.

Indulging in a pity party with tequila, Melanie confides in a sexy stranger at the bar. It’s almost Christmas, one night of letting go won’t hurt anything, right? Turns out it just might—when the stranger is her new boss. Determined to succeed at her job, Melanie won’t be scared away. This is her chance, even if her hot boss has her feeling all merry and bright and wishing for a less than professional relationship.

Matthew Ryans is burned out and on thin ice at the company he helped build unless he gets his head back in the game. Yet, his head, both upper and lower, are quickly becoming obsessed with his new assistant. Still, he can’t seem to fully begrudge Melanie’s distracting presence and the Christmas joy she brings with it. Especially considering that her enthusiasm has him reenergized. For once, he is longing for Mondays, but with his heart and job on the line he can’t risk blurring the lines no matter how strong the lure of holiday mistletoe is.

Will their holiday passion be able to fuel mutual career success, or will it only get in their way in the New Year?

Mine to Five by Tara September was a fun little romantic comedy that was super quick to read. Matthew and Melanie have heaps of chemistry, and it doesn't take them long to realize it either. They try to ignore it at first.. well.. almost at first. *wink* They were adorable and funny. I thoroughly enjoyed their story. The narrator spoke clearly and portrayed Malanie perfectly with her attitude and spunk. It takes place around the holidays, so this is the perfect time of year to read it, but I would enjoy it no matter the season. This one was quite entertaining.

Mine to Five by Tara September was kindly provided to me by AudioBookworm Promotions for review. The opinions are my own.

This or That 

Waffle fries or curly fries? -  Neither. I like crispy steak frites … or McDonald’s fries, I know, but they are sooo good.
GIF with a hard g or soft g?  - Hard, like my men, lol.
Fantasy or science-fiction? Hmm both, but if pressed I’d say Sci-Fi. Love me some Star Wars.
Superman or Batman?  - Superman! He’s super, it’s in his name after all. This is actually a debate the hero and heroine have in my holiday office romance, Mine to Five.
Text message or call? - TXT! I have a phobia about having to sort out issues over the phone with strangers.
Contest a bill or having to call customer service? Ugh the worst. So if I can just send a strongly worded email instead, even better! Even my besties have accepted that I’m not the friend that will chat on the phone for hours. Rather do that in-person or on my blog.
Pancakes or waffles? - Waffles. It comes with built-in grooves to hold my syrup, whip cream and other toppings.
Doctor Who or the Walking Dead? I haven’t seen either *ducks for cover*
TV Shows or movies? Movies. I saw every film on the AFI 100 list before I graduated high school. My favorite actress is Katharine Hepburn.
Facebook or Twitter? Twitter for fun, Facebook for business.
Alice in Wonderland or Robinson Crusoe? Meh to both. But since Robinson Crusoe is technically considered the first novel ever, much is owed to Defoe for paving the way for today’s literature. <Tara tips imaginary hat and puts on imaginary opera gloves>
Being too warm or too cold? I live in Florida for a reason.
Netflix or Hulu?  Netflix. I’m OG like that. I used to have their DVD rental service, lol.
Work Hard or Play Hard? Play on player!
Passenger or Driver? Driver, because in our family that means I have control of the radio and can play an audiobook or Yacht Rock Radio. Plus, I can never sleep in the car anyway, so I might as well drive.
Amusement Park or Day at the Beach?  In Florida we can do both ;) I’m a huge Disney addict. Used to work for Disney corporate out in LA.
Honesty or Other’s Feelings? Other’s feelings!
Movie at Home or Movie at the Theater?  Theater. About two-thirds of the way back, in the center of the row. If not, I’ll wait in the lobby eating nachos and sour patch kids until the next showing. My husband meanwhile will likely have given up and will see something else solo.  Oh, and I LOVE previews. If we arrive after the previews, I’ll wait for the next showing, lol.
