Falling in love is always in fashion….

With her trust fund and coveted job at Christian Dior, Fanny Moreau believes she has it all. But when her best friend finds a fulfilling new career abroad—and a dreamy relationship with a great guy, Fanny’s fabulous life suddenly feels empty. Inspired to find her true purpose, she trades her cushy lifestyle in San Francisco for an adventure in the Alaskan wilderness.

Everyone thinks Fanny has gone off the deep end. What’s a girl with a Ph.D in Prada doing teaching in an Inuit village? Even Fanny is wondering, especially when she comes face to face with Calder MacFarlane. The Scottish search and rescue pilot is everything Fanny is not—selfless, heroic, and used to living on the edge. He’s also the man who once loved her best friend. Yet something in Calder’s sexy gaze has her believing that she’s a woman capable of great things—a woman who might just find her own happily-ever-after, in a place where she least expects it…

On the fashion career fast track, Fanny Moreau commits career suicide with a drunken text that lands her working for a non-profit charity in Alaska. Nothing like a little culture shock, the streets of NYC to the Alaskan wilderness.

It just so happens that on her way to her new found fashion exile, Fanny runs into her best friends ex-boyfriend/fling, Scottish rescue pilot, Calder.

Fanny dreamed of landing a pilot like Calder but she doesn’t think a sexy man like him would ever want a girl like her…there is something about the way Calder looks at her that makes her feel she can conquer the world.

I liked it but there was something about the pace of the story that was just off. It definitely had a very slow start with it taking over 1/3 of the book before the story really began. That slow start was offset by great humor, that did keep me invested.

In the end I found Working It sweet, very comical and sexy and a nice read for the chick lit. shelf. 3.5 stars.

I received this ARC copy of Working It from Kensington Books - Lyrical Shine in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication June 7, 2016.
