What happens when the internet's favorite playboy falls in love?

I have the best job in the world. Date beautiful women and write about it.

But I want to take it to the next level: instead of writing about my experiences make it into an online reality show.
But here is the catch. My boss wants me to share the show with a woman co-host. And he wants that woman to be my best friend and co-worker, Margo.
I’ll date beautiful women and she’ll date hot men. Sounds fair enough.

So now I have to watch her fake date hot men. I used to love going home with a different woman every night, but suddenly this isn’t as fun. Seeing Margo with anyone else is driving me crazy.

And the more time I spend with her working on the show, the less I want to keep our relationship in the friends’ zone. And the harder it is to stop myself from imagining her bent over the copier.

Things are about to get unprofessional.

Book Review: 3 stars


Unprofessional is the kind of friends to lovers + office romance that always attracts me to read, and if the cover of said book is as hot as the cover of this book, I’m sold. I didn’t hesitate to read it, even though I’ve never read JD Hawkins before—who BTW is a man, huge surprise for me.

This is the story of Margo and Owen. They met in college under the funniest circumstances—Owen was naked *wink*—and they became friends instantly. Like Owen said, “it was friendship at first sight”. They partied hard during their college years and when it was time to being responsible adults, they ended up working in the same company, TrendBlend, in fact, it was Margo who got Owen this job. For him it was the dream job: Dating gorgeous women and write about his experiences, he was well known on the internet. Despite it was a job that never bored Owen, Margo felt she needed more. She wanted to write about meaningful topics, not just about shallow stuff, and there was also something that bothered her so much: Seeing Owen with a parade of dates. They always respected their friendship, but one tequila night changed everything.

And here comes what didn’t quite do it for me about this book. Margo had a dream, she fought for it and once she got it at the end, love won. Don’t get me wrong, I love romances and HEA and all, but as a woman—a strong woman as I consider myself—there is more than just love in a woman’s live, we have professional dreams and goals and we are proud of our achievements, and the decision Margo took wasn’t the best, in my honest opinion.

All in all,  Unprofessional was a good story with good potential and I’m sure this will fulfill the expectations of many other readers, it just didn’t do it completely for me, especially because  the ending was a little rush for my liking and I would have liked a little more depth in this part.
