Operation Find a Guy | Excerpt + Giveaway

JustRead Publicity Tours


Skye Jones has one goal for the summer—keep her father from taking away her convertible. That’s the only reason she’s agreed to work at her sister’s bridal shop in Boulder, Colorado. It will buy her some time to figure out if there’s a non-boring job out there. Why else would she have anything to do with weddings when she has no interest in marriage?

Benjamin Smith can’t quite figure out how he ended up a groomsman in two different weddings over the summer, but with his sister and a cousin both getting married, he’s spending a lot of time at Happily Ever After events. Falling for a blonde with no dreams of settling down wasn’t in his five-year plan, but the more he sees Skye, the more he wants to figure her out. But all she sees him as is a boring attorney and her complete opposite.

Romance was supposed to be for Skye’s friends. But Colorado might hold more than she knew she was looking for.

“You don’t want to get married someday?” He tried to come across as nonchalant, but curiosity urged him to ask more questions. “No boy back home keeping the telephone wires hopping with his nightly calls and words of missing you?”

“Oh no. I don’t have relationships. I only have FLIRTS.”

“Wait. Did you just call yourself a flirt?”

“No, silly. I said I only had FLIRTS.” She held a finger up for each letter. “Fun Living in Right This Second.”

He mouthed the words as he made sure they really did correspond with each letter. They did.

“So, no plans for the future? No dreams of settling down?”

“Nah. I’m more of a live-in-the-moment kind of girl. Having plans takes the spontaneity out of life—makes it dull.” She turned another page as if everything on it were the dullest thing imaginable.

“That can’t be true.” The attorney in him was coming out, wanting to plead his case.

“Can’t it?” She flipped a strand of the longest, blondest hair over her shoulder and raised a thin eyebrow. “Do you have fun doing whatever it is you do for a living in a suit like that?”

“A suit like this?” He plucked at his lapel. “What’s wrong with wearing a suit?”

“It usually comes with a stuffy job to match.”
