ARC Review --> Once Upon a Dare by Jennifer Bonds

Once Upon a Dare by Jennifer Bonds
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Title: Once Upon a Dare
Author: Jennifer Bonds
Release Date: April 7th, 2015
Series: Risky Business, #1

Advertising guru Olivia Masterson is all work and no play. But on the eve of earning her dream promotion, her best friend dares her to drop her ice queen façade for one night and seduce a sexy stranger. Olivia’s worked her ass off to get where she is—why the hell not?

Cole Bennett never thought he’d run into his feisty one-night stand at the office, furious that he stole her promotion. No matter how hard she tries to ice him out, they can’t seem to keep their hands to themselves…or their clothes on.

Olivia's talented—maybe even more than Cole—so when his dropped hints to the boss net her a promotion of her own, he’s ready to celebrate...until she accuses him of fueling office rumors that she slept her way to the top. She wants to earn her own way? Fine. So what the hell does a guy have to do to permanently melt an ice queen?

3.5 stars
I really enjoyed this read. I don’t really read a lot of office romance books but I would recommend this one. It was fast pace and really quick read.

The Characters…
I liked the two main characters for the most part. Although Olivia has some WTF moments, I just wanted to smack her. And there was one in particular that really made me mad. But other than a few little other things, she was a pretty good character.
And Mr. Cole Bennett was great. I don’t have any complaints about him.
Her best friend was a bit much at times. I thought she was kind of annoying, but she turned out ok.

The Plot
I pretty well predicted what would happen, but I also enjoyed it. It didn’t take away from the story. I really liked it actually. I don’t really read a lot of office romance so I found it refreshing.

What I did not like…
I only wished that his sister and her kids would have got to meet Olivia. I liked when the family meets the girl that stole the guy’s heats. And the other thing would be her taking that guy as her date. I really just didn’t care for that.

Overall thoughts…
I enjoyed it. Nothing really wowed me but I also didn’t hate it. Only a few small things I didn’t like, but overall it was a cute quick read. I would recommend it to people who like office romance and for some just wanting a quick read with a little conflict.
