New Release & Book Review: What I'm Looking For by Karen Grey
From the publisher:
Recipe for a Boston Classic Cocktail: one part finance geek, one part starving actor, two shots of stubborn and a healthy squeeze of passion. Shake well and serve in a vintage glass.
When Kate Bishop walks into Boston’s famous Bull and Finch pub, all she’s looking for is one guy from her investment firm that she can trust to have her back—a tall order. With a salesman at her side, maybe stage fright won’t paralyze her completely when she presents her meticulously prepared research to clients. And maybe she can save her job.
Romance is the last thing on her to-do list, but a meet-cute with a Shakespeare-quoting bartender has her speculating on the value of diversifying her life portfolio.
Will Talbot is not a fan of the slick financiers who cram into his bar after each day’s closing bell. With their calls for Harvey Wallbangers and their Hermès ties, they’re all the same.
Except for a certain beautiful, buttoned-up brunette with fire in her eyes and a storm in her heart. They’re totally wrong for each other. He should be focusing on his upcoming audition, not coaching Kate on how to act like she's a bonafide member of the Gordon Gekko club.
Problem is, they can’t seem to stay away from each other.
The course of true love never did run smooth, but in this 1980's sweet-and-sexy rom-com, returns on love can’t be measured on the S&P 500.

I am sitting here writing this review and trying to do justice to the fantastic reading experience I've had with this book. Can we even call a book set in the 80's historical? I rather not contemplate that 1980 was FORTY YEARS AGO.
Although this book is a romance, I am happy to share that readers that usually do not read romance will appreciate this book too. It has some many enjoyable elements,I feel like there's something for everyone. And romance readers that enjoy books with more substance, this is an absolute treat. If you enjoy Penny Reid and Susannah Nix, you will enjoy this book.
Although I was alive in the ’80s, I was too young to have lived through all the references in this book, but I remember enough to confirm the accuracy. There are some parts that’ll piss you off, but no great book will leave you untouched.
Chemistry: The chemistry between Kate and Will is pretty steamy. These are two opposites that keep fighting to meet in the middle, no matter what comes their way. For those of us that like our romance with a heavy hand of smut, there’s not a lot of it in this book. Listen, now and then you have to pick up a book that challenges you a little bit more..this is one of those books. Smart romance for the win!
Romance and Heart: Will quotes Shakespeare like it’s going out of style...need I say more? It actually made me dig up my Shakespeare books that I haven’t touched in *coughs* way too long. Seeing the journey these two had to go through was pretty gratifying. Kate is a badass and as I keep saying, we need more smart female protagonists in romance...very few of us are wilting flowers,
This is a fabulous read that’ll take you back in time, make you swoon, and serve you with a heavy dose of nostalgia. Smart escapism at its finest! Five bitchin’s stars for What I’m Looking For!
