Whooaaa…this book gives “unprofessional” a whole new meaning!
HOT!!! And hot, and hot, and swoony….and did I mention HOT! Wowza, if all coworkers are like Owen, I’m thinking the entire female population would definitely enjoy going to work!
Unprofessional was a great friends-to-lovers/office romance! I LOVED the fact that Owen and Margo had an established relationship, prior to becoming coworkers. And the fact that neither one of them hid their true character from the other. Their chemistry was evident right from the beginning. ‘Cause hello!….coffee! And once they caved and finally took matters into their own hands, literally, their chemistry went from simmering to explosive. But when their relationship turns from friends to lovers, it was totally understandable why Margo had reservations about Owen. He was a playboy, and it was obviously clear that “casual” was the only route he took. And with a chance at her dream job, Margo wondered if casual could work for her.
I really enjoyed this book. I did. But here comes the “but”: being as close as friends as Owen and Margo were, best friends even, I didn’t care for their lack of communication regarding their feelings, and Margo’s job opportunity. 8 years is a long time to be friends with someone, and have the ability to tell them anything. So why now? Why hold back their real, deep feelings and emotions from each other?…when it should have been their top priority. I understand the fear of losing each other. But they already crossed that line by progressing their friend and professional relationship.
Overall, Unprofessional was a great book. It wasn’t my favorite from JD, but it in no way will deter me from reading more of his books in the future. The story was entertaining, freaking sexy as hell, and had some fantastic comedy throughout…very charming!

What happens when the internet’s favorite playboy falls in love?
I have the best job in the world. Date beautiful women and write about it.
But I want to take it to the next level: instead of writing about my experiences make it into an online reality show.
But here is the catch. My boss wants me to share the show with a woman co-host. And he wants that woman to be my best friend and co-worker, Margo.
I’ll date beautiful women and she’ll date hot men. Sounds fair enough.
So now I have to watch her fake date hot men. I used to love going home with a different woman every night, but suddenly this isn’t as fun. Seeing Margo with anyone else is driving me crazy.
And the more time I spend with her working on the show, the less I want to keep our relationship in the friends’ zone. And the harder it is to stop myself from imagining her bent over the copier.
Things are about to get unprofessional.
