Title: The Casual Rule
Author: AC Netzel
Synopsis: Julia Conti is living the dream in New York City. She has a job she loves in publishing and shares an apartment in the Village with her lifelong best friend, Allie. Following a bad break-up, Julia swears off of men and relationships, until she meets Ben Martin, an up and coming author who is smart, sexy and very easy on the eyes. Fueled by their mutual attraction, close working relationship and fear of relationships, Julia and Ben embark on a purely physical affair, following the Casual Rule. As they bring each other further into their lives, their casual status blurs. Can she keep sex and love separate or will feelings take hold and Julia get her heart broken again?
A little sweet, a little smutty, a little snarky.
Recommended for readers 18+ due to sexual references and sex scenes
I gave this book 5 stars!
Oh my goodness this book blew me away. I couldn’t put it down and when I did I hurried with what I was doing to get back to it. From the beginning you will fall in love with Julia and by the end you will start to love Ben. AC gives you twist, turns and it will keep you guessing to the end. I absolutely love the storyline it’s not like alot of the other books out there.
