From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Probst comes a new story in her Stay series.
Jonathan Lake is the beloved NYC mayor who’s making a run for Governor. His widowed status and close relationship with his daughter casts him as the darling of the press, and the candidate to beat, but behind the flash of the cameras, things are spinning out of control. It all has to do with his strait laced, ruthlessly organized assistant. Her skills and reserved demeanor are perfect to run his campaign, but her brilliant brain has become a temptation he’s been fighting for too long. Can he convince her to take a chance on a long-term campaign for love or will his efforts end up in scandal?
Alyssa Block has admired the NYC mayor for a long time, but her secret crush is kept ruthlessly buried under a mountain of work. Besides, she’s not his type, and office scandals is not in her job position. But when they retreat to an upstate horse farm for a secluded weekend, the spark between them catches flame, and Jonathan sets those stinging blue-eyes on winning her. Can she convince him to focus on the upcoming election, or will she succumb to the sweet promise of a different future?
**For fans of Jennifer Probst’s Stay series, Something Just Like This is book four in that series.**
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
Having read the other novels in this series, I automatically jumped to read this novella addition. While I didn't expect to hate this novella, I didn't expect to love it as much as I did! I usually like the development of plot and characters throughout a full-length novel. Something Just Like This may be lacking in length but definitely did not fall short!
Jonathan and Alyssa's chemistry is undeniable, even though the two of them will do what they can to put their feelings for each other aside for the sake of their working relationship. I loved the ties to other characters you're familiar with from the rest of the series (ie Chloe)! The emotions are strong and the story is something you can easily devour in one sitting. Jennifer Probst has a way with her words and I love her writing. This book was no different--definitely a welcome addition to the series.
