Attractive Nuisance by Jennifer Griffith, Book Review

General Information
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Published: February 11, 2015

Book Summary (Per Goodreads):
Camilla Sweeten is serious about her job in the County Attorney’s office. She’s even working up the courage to ask her boss to consider her for promotion to deputy. 

Then, into court walks the gorgeous Zane Holyoake, and disaster strikes—in the form of a total brain fog right in the middle of her closing arguments. In front of both her boss and the meanest bear of a judge in the county, Camilla hears herself saying, “Like, I totally made my point,” as though she’d flown in from 1980s California in a time machine airplane. 

Now her boss will never consider her for deputy—especially since Zane turns out to be a new lawyer, possibly brought in to steal her dream job. 

But when a notorious criminal is caught in their county, Camilla must focus on getting the thief convicted and not on Zane, who smells heavenly and is bent on distracting her with lunch offers and wacky Boy Scout stories that may melt her many resolves. 

It’s going to take incredible willpower to ignore this attractive nuisance. 

My Thoughts
This is a good book.  At first I was not sure about it, but then I took a break and thought about the story, readjusted my mind set since I had read so many YAs recently and started reading again....where I started to really enjoy the characters and their interactions!  I must say that I do not really enjoy Camilla.  I think she is really well described and that many will like her, but she is not my cup of tea.  She was a bit whinny for me and I thought it odd that she kept talking about how much she loved Prescott, but did not know the restaurant and some other locations. However, I adore Zane!  I love his story telling approach, his secrets and how he shares them with Camilla.  Another part I enjoyed of this story was the names of the criminals and cars.  I name my car so I always enjoy seeing what people name their mode of transportation.

If you are looking for a light-hearted, sweet and quick romance this will be great for you!  It has some funny interactions between many of the characters and sweet scenes.  I did not laugh out loud, but I did find this a cute love story with an interesting cast of coworkers.
