Synopsis from Goodreads

It should be an easy rule to follow – don’t bang your boss…
But I didn’t know who he was when I met him.

And the first time I saw him, our connection sounded like the stuff of romantic legends — that whole “their eyes locked across a crowded room” moment that turned into more.
I didn’t believe it. . . . until it happened to me.

Fine, the charming, clever, sexy-as-sin guy in the tailored suit was only trying to buy the same Snoopy lunchbox (as a gift!), but still, our eyes totally locked, and my lady parts definitely tingled as we vied for the prize.

Naturally, I did what any badass business woman would do. Negotiated for the lunchbox, then found my what-if guy online and made plans to see him the next night.

One night only — that was the deal we made.

But one fantastic night had us both changing our minds in the morning. And making plans for another.

Until I walked into the office to learn he just bought my company.

And here’s the biggest rule of romantic legends — no matter what, don’t bang your boss.

Especially if you’re already falling for him.


Can you imagine meeting someone you just click with on all levels, your perfect match complete with a meet-cute. That is exactly what happens with Logan and Bryn, they are compatible in every single way, physically, emotionally and intellectually. How often does that happen?

Missing their moment during the meet-cute, The What If Guy ingeniously uses the missed connections device to reach out, the funny thing is both Bryn and Logan did exactly the same thing. Turning the missed opportunity into a date to explore their attraction further. And boy does it go further, the heat ramps up during their first date and the expectation of more for both of them.

Unfortunately, things aren’t that simple, especially when the guy you had an amazing night with becomes your boss the very next day. With the inequalities still firmly in place within the workplace between men and women, Bryn is hesitant to continue building a relationship with Logan. Especially as they both have a lot of emotional baggage stemming from their previous relationships.

The banter and chemistry within The What If Guy is trademark Lauren Blakely. Lauren never fails to make me swoon with her writing and The What If Guy is no exception. Plus we got to catch-up with the characters featured in the first book, Dear Sexy Ex-Boyfriend always a bonus when that happens.
