When Elsie is offered the job at MIT, she is thrilled. However, there is one catch: she has to pretend to be in a relationship with Jack to secure the position. Elsie is hesitant at first, but she eventually agrees.

“With its engaging plot and relatable characters, this book is a must-read for fans of romantic comedies, and will appeal to fans of Ali Hazelwood’s previous books.”
