Attractive Nuisance- Jenniffer Griffith
Description: Camilla Sweeten is serious about her job in the County Attorney’s office. She’s even working up the courage to ask her boss to consider her for promotion to deputy.
Then, into court walks the gorgeous Zane Holyoake, and disaster strikes—in the form of a total brain fog right in the middle of her closing arguments. In front of both her boss and the meanest bear of a judge in the county, Camilla hears herself saying, “Like, I totally made my point,” as though she’d flown in from1980s California in a time machine airplane.
Now her boss will never consider her for deputy—especially since Zane turns out to be a new lawyer, possibly brought in to steal her dream job.
But when a notorious criminal is caught in their county, Camilla must focus on getting the thief convicted and not on Zane, who smells heavenly and is bent on distracting her with lunch offers and wacky Boy Scout stories that may melt her many resolves.
It’s going to take incredible willpower to ignore this attractive nuisance.
My Thoughts: Attractive Nuisance is a fairly straightforward read. Camilla is a workaholic with no hope for romance, suddenly bombarded with attention from an attractive man who she fears will be lost to her like all (like four) the others she has dated. The story was a nice, sweet read, where Camilla insists that she wont "put out" because she has seen too many people hurt by doing so. I like that she stuck to that, there just was not much else of depth in the story. It is very much a romance, with a good 95% of the story dealing only with their romance. I would have liked there to be a little more going on and to have better known the characters.
