“clans in the front & the punks in the back” ... Wu-Tang Clan courtesy of Staci Hart :)
Rin is this wallflower art loving girl; who just got the internship of her dreams... and on the first day she walk into her future! She is quirky and lovable & the Wu-Tang references had me laughing so hard it was to the point of crying!
Court is just frustratingly delicious and can't stay away from Rin... he is drawn to her like paint to a canvas!
This is a must read and is definitely my pick for this month!

A sexy quirky laugh out loud love story! Ashley @ White Hot Reads
This book was a great read and I could not put this book down. Staci Hart created a great romantic comedy in this book.
Rin is the quirky Ph.D. student who decides that her internship is when she needs to grow up and show the world the strong women she is. Her gift to rap had me laughing out loud and smiling throughout the book.
Court is the damaged man who can not stay away from the intern that not only stimulates his mind but set his body on fire!
This is a must-read for anyone who loves to laugh and a great love story.

I love a good Staci Hart book and she has quickly become a favorite author of mine over the last year. She has proven she can write fun, quirky romances and also ones that dig a little deeper and make you feel. This is why she is one of my favorites right now. But POW just missed the mark for me somewhere. I liked it but it just isn't a favorite.
Let's talk the good things first. The group of friends that Rin has. They were my favorite part of this book. The Red Lipstick Coalition. This group is a group that most people strive for when wanting to build a circle of friends and support. And when you get it you realize just how lucky you are. Not to mention I'm a firm believer the right shade of lipstick can change a girl or at least give her confidence and a little pep her step like it did Rin. I'm pretty anxious to see how it works for the other girls.
I also enjoyed a lot of the history and art we learned about. You could tell the love the hero and heroine had for their jobs was real. I believed that The Met was their dream job and they would do anything to stay in that world.
So what didn't work for me? I just didn't quite believe the chemistry and relationship that developed between Rin and Court. And also, let's just admit his back and forth with her and then her so easily forgiving him drove me a bit bonkers. I felt like in those moments Rin went right back to the shy girl that we met at the beginning of the book who just wanted to please everyone. Yes, she stood up for herself but then Court always had a way of turning her to mush with some pretty lame excused in my book. Yes, he was hurt by two people in his life that shouldn't have but how many times does that excuse work?
For the most part this is a fun, fast read and I know many will love it. That's apparent by the reviews before me. I enjoyed it but it just fell a little bit flat for me when compared to her other works. I won't be hiding from the next ones though as I am pretty excited to see where this group of friends are headed.
Marble isn’t the only thing that’s hard at this museum.
His body is as chiseled as Adonis. His lips are as sculpted as David. And his ego is the size of the Guggenheim.
You know the type—wolfish smile and the gravity of a black hole. The kind of man who sucks all the air from the room the second he enters it. My cocky boss thinks this internship was wasted on me, and he doesn’t hesitate to let me know.
But he’s wrong, and I’m going to prove it to him. If I can stay away from his devil lips, that is. Lips that cut me down and kiss me in the same breath, leaving me certain he’s on a mission to ruin my life.
And maybe my heart.
Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey.
From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
