About SOMETHING JUST LIKE THIS:
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Probst comes a new story in her Stay series.
Jonathan Lake is the beloved NYC mayor who’s making a run for Governor. His widowed status and close relationship with his daughter casts him as the darling of the press, and the candidate to beat, but behind the flash of the cameras, things are spinning out of control. It all has to do with his strait laced, ruthlessly organized assistant. Her skills and reserved demeanor are perfect to run his campaign, but her brilliant brain has become a temptation he’s been fighting for too long. Can he convince her to take a chance on a long-term campaign for love or will his efforts end up in scandal?
Alyssa Block has admired the NYC mayor for a long time, but her secret crush is kept ruthlessly buried under a mountain of work. Besides, she’s not his type, and office scandals is not in her job position. But when they retreat to an upstate horse farm for a secluded weekend, the spark between them catches flame, and Jonathan sets those stinging blue-eyes on winning her. Can she convince him to focus on the upcoming election, or will she succumb to the sweet promise of a different future?

Something Just like This is a novella in the Stay series by the talented Jennifer Probst. I was excited when I heard Chloe’s dad was getting a story! I was intrigued by him in the series and Jennifer gave me what I didn’t even know I needed! Jonathan is the mayor of New York. He’s widowed and has his eye on the governor seat. He’s also wildly attracted to Alyssa, his assistant. That’s a very bad move in politics. But when he realizes she might have feelings for him as well, he goes all in. He wants a relationship with her. He’s ready and she’s the first woman in years to spark his interest. It’s been years in the making and now’s the time. He just has to convince her to jump with him. Will the spotlight be too much for Alyssa? Can they find happiness in the midst of the political arena? This story is fantastic! It’s short, sweet and hot. But it feels like a full length novel! And we get to see Chloe, Mia, Ethan, Harper, Aiden, Ophelia, Kyle and all the animals! It felt like coming home for family dinner and it really got me excited for Chloe’s story!
“The hot librarian image is a cliché for a reason. And when you start rattling off statistics like a mast, I get a bit weak-kneed.”
“God, I love when you do that.”
“Smile. Laugh. It’s like the sun coming out on a cloudy day.”
“Did you have any siblings?” he asked.
She shook her head. “Just me and endless aunts and uncles of the theater.”
“When did you finally get to pursue your own dream of college?”
“I left them when I was nineteen. Took my GED, applied to the local community college, and got a job working as a secretary. I taught myself to type and did the bills at home and for the current theater project they were involved in, so I had some skills. The rest was easy.”
She sipped at the wine, taking her time with the balance and flavor as she let it settle over her tongue and slip down her throat. He shifted in the chair, the heat suddenly strangling him. She was so damn sexy and had no clue. It made it so much harder not to touch her.
“How easy?” he asked.
“I got As, scored a scholarship to Cornell, then came to the city for a more interesting career.”
“Do you see your parents often?”
He wondered when she’d stop answering his questions. He was greedy for anything she’d share, but for now, she seemed open to talking. “No, but we chat on the phone, and when they came here last year for an off-off-Broadway play, they stayed with me for a week. We’re happier when we’re apart. Our personalities just never matched, but we love each other. We’re family.”
Her simple acceptance of her life humbled him. He knew she was no whiner, but it was more than that. She seemed to know who she was to the core and made no apologies—even to her parents. That type of strength and feminine confidence pulled at him. The man she took into her inner circle would be the luckiest bastard on Earth.
God, he wanted it to be him.
“Thank you for telling me,” he finally said, content to let what she gave him be enough. “I guess I realized we spend all this time together, but I knew nothing about your personal life.” Had he seemed greedy for information? Maybe it was better to ease off in case she was uncomfortable? “It’s nice to learn more about your important employees.”
She stiffened, and the wall slammed back up. “Our work relationship doesn’t warrant personal,” she said coolly. “And I don’t need to be another of your charities, Mr. Mayor. The way things have been between us has been just fine.”
He blinked, caught off guard. “Wait, what did I say wrong? And you know it pisses me off when you don’t use my name.”
