Review: The New Year’s Wish by Dani-Lyn Alexander



Pocket Star

Release Date:
December 2015

Synopsis from Goodreads

Typing out memos is anything but torturous when your boss is this hot! Dani-Lyn Alexander’s irresistible new yuletide romance is a lighthearted office romp that will make you long for the company holiday party.

Olivia Calloway isn’t cut out for the nine-to-five life. She’s a born entrepreneur. She just has to figure out her soul’s true calling—and she’s given herself until the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve to do it. With her trust fund dwindling and only two and a half months to go, she takes an assistant position at prestigious law firm Harris & Harris. The problem is, Olivia’s a terrible employee—incessantly late, forgetful, and clumsy. Not that her gorgeous new boss Garrett Emerson seems to mind. Beautiful, charming Olivia has been on his mind ever since she ran into him, literally, sprinting to the interview. But Olivia’s first big assignment—to plan an elaborate last minute New Year’s Eve party for the entire company—could make or break her job entirely. With Ms. Harris herself demanding perfection, a jealous office rival rooting for Olivia to lose, and even Garrett dreading the affair, can Olivia finally prove herself—or will an unforeseen complication send her back to the drawing board? All she wants for the holidays is to be her own boss—and to ignite the flirtatious sparks between her and Garrett…so she can file their relationship under love.

My Review

This is the perfect escape for readers at this busy time of year. I wanted a quick “feel good” type of story and this fit the bill. Olivia and Garrett are a likeable couple you can cheer for and root to get their happily-ever-after, along with Olivia’s loveable dog Barney and Garrett’s adorable little daughter Gracie.

“The New Year’s Wish” is a sweet romance. It’s not a complicated story – no sex or violence. This book is a wonderful story for this time of year. It will leave readers smiling. It would make a cute romantic comedy movie.

Now, I need to see what other books this author has written.
