Jack Nolan is a gentleman, a journalist, and a would-be investigative reporter. Due to a combination of good looks and lucky (or unlucky?) breaks, he's become the how-to guy for a buzzy, internet media company instead of covering hard-hitting politics. Fed up with his fluffy job and the app-based dating scene as well, he reluctantly agrees to write an article on how to lose a girl in two weeks. Easier said than done when the subject of his experiment is Hannah Mayfield, and he's not sure he wants to lose her... Hannah is an extremely successful event planner who's focused on climbing the career ladder. Her firm is one of the most prestigious in the city, and she's determined to secure her next promotion. She's made a name for herself as the go-to Girl Friday for any event that's likely to get raucous. But the somewhat prickly Hannah has a bit of an image problem: she needs to prove to her boss that she has range, including dreaded, romantic wedding receptions, if she wants a corner office. When she meets Jack, he seems like the perfect man to test her romance knowledge on. Little does she know, he also has an ulterior motive.

*Starred Review* Dating in the twenty-first century isn't easy. Just ask Jack Nolan and Hannah Mayfield. Both are up-and-coming professionals; he's a journalist and she is an event planner; and both are attractive, intelligent, and single. When Hannah's boss insists that she find a boyfriend before landing a coveted assignment, she takes the challenge as seriously as she does everything else. Jack happens to be the guy she sets her sights on, but he, too, is hiding a secret motive. He needs to win her over and then lose her in order to write an article for his wildly popular but unfulfilling series before he can write about politics as he longs to. Jack tries every dumb-guy scheme his friends suggest to lose Hannah, but she won't be lost. She takes each move in stride, hanging onto Jack in order to please her boss. Hannah struggles most with her racial identity; being biracial, she doesn't feel either Black or white enough. Jack struggles with his feelings about family and commitment. Despite all this, somewhere along the way they fall in love, and their chemistry is off-the-charts sexy. Might Hannah be the girl that Jack marries? Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
