What It’s About:
I’ve never been the superstitious type. Black cats are made for snuggling, and broken mirrors just mean I can’t see today’s epic zit, but getting stuck in an elevator and accidentally making out with my handsome boss on his first day? I don’t have to read the tea leaves to know, this spells disaster for my dream journalism job.
With the future of the newspaper in jeopardy, I’m next on the chopping block for sure… until I figure out our new CEO’s one weakness.
And it’s written in the stars.
Turns out, Justin is a major fan of the Gazette’s astrology column. And since our resident mystic has gone AWOL, guess who’s left secretly writing the forecasts? Me!
Soon, I’m using his star sign to nudge him in the right direction – and away from the pink slips. But as Justin and I grow closer, the chemistry between us is sizzling… and my little white lie turns into a galaxy-sized problem. I’m seeing stars – and not just when he kisses me…
Can I find a way out of this celestial mix-up? Or will my forecast spell heartbreak for the both of us?
Readers can count on author Lila Monroe to bring some lightness and laughter into their day. Her latest novella, What’s Your Sign?, is a hilarious office romance. This book takes off with an adorably awkward meeting and it gets better with every page.
What’s Your Sign features Natalie, an energetic and feisty journalist at The Gazette newspaper. Even though the industry is sagging, she loves her job and her coworkers. Her dedication to saving the newspaper is admirable, and the lengths she’ll go are uproarious. Justin, who is the sent in to dismantle the newspaper organization, is secretly hoping to save the paper and the employees. As the last hired, he should fire Natalie, but her infectious enthusiasm wins him over.
These two characters make a great team. The banter is fun and their joking around with each other is hilarious. Ms. Monroe has again created a couple of characters who feel real and had me rooting for their success. The antagonism over the potential office shutdown eventually turns into a romance as Natalie and Justin work together to save the paper. Naturally, there are some hurdles to overcome, but that provides more laughs than angst. Between the missing astrologist, the aging actress next door, and the fatherly matchmaking the fun never stops. What’s Your Sign? is a charming, quick read that left me hoping for more stories about the secondary characters.
