Enemies to Lovers. Forced Proximity. Office Romance. New Adult. Chaos.
Office Date is a standalone adult contemporary romance by author Rachel Van Dyken. This was listed as a romantic comedy and while there were funny moments, I was expecting more Lol-ing on my part. I enjoyed this book. It didn’t knock my socks off but it s was a quick and fun read.
In Office Date we meet our two main characters, Ivy and Jack, who have been quasi enemies forever. hey grew up in the same town, and now they find themselves both interns at the same company. When their boss has all the interns compete in what he is calling the Emory Games, which is a carry over from the first book in the series (which I did not read). Ivy and Jack are partnered up in the games and as soon as the games start, the hijinks and forced proximity ensues. This book was a quick read and lots of fun. I ended up liking it but not falling in love like I was quite hoping I would.
