A feel-good, opposites-attract, slow-burn romantic comedy
Somebody stole my painting! The one I need for the career-defining Vertex Art Exhibit. This upcoming art show is my chance to finally be recognized as an artist—after ten years of waitressing and being asked if I still have that “lovely painting hobby.”
I have mere weeks to find my painting or lose my artist dream forever—but it’s going to mean working with William.
William Haruki Matsumura. Good-looking, if you like the Secret Service type. You know, law-abiding, protector of women and children. That’s all fine, but I can never tell what he’s thinking. Which drives me crazy.
He insists on coming along to do “damage control.” As if “accidentally” wandering into certain areas is “breaking and entering.” I may be an emotional artist, but William shouldn’t dismiss my investigative skills yet.
William is definitely my opposite, and if there’s one takeaway from my parents’ divorce, it’s that opposites might attract, but it doesn’t last. But detecting with William is kind of fun—and fluttery. I definitely can’t trust these feelings, or can I? However this caper ends, I think this may be more than a crush.

Rom-com plus mystery. Such a fun read. Could not put it down.
Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for an honest review!
This story totally brought an all new meaning to the term ' Opposites Attract " ! I loved Miranda and William ! Starting off you don't necessarily suspect they're going to have any sort of romance seeing as they know each other through their uncles whom are married. Miranda is a struggling rockstar artist and William is an accountant with his own business.
Miranda has just been accepted into her first major art exhibition, and when she is making arrangements to have her paintings transported she learns that the main piece for her show that was being stored with her uncles has been stolen ! She is devastated. Along with her uncles who have prior work experience with Homeland Security and The Secret Service as well as William, Miranda is on the case.
William agrees to help Miranda with her investigation for the stolen painting. Along the way it's like a game of clue. Who did it ? Where did they hide the paintings to get them out of a secure location ? and What was the reason as to why anyone would want to hurt Miranda ? This book was a great summer read & I loved these characters.
