About SOMETHING JUST LIKE THIS: 

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Probst comes a new story in her Stay series.

Jonathan Lake is the beloved NYC mayor who’s making a run for Governor. His widowed status and close relationship with his daughter casts him as the darling of the press, and the candidate to beat, but behind the flash of the cameras, things are spinning out of control. It all has to do with his strait laced, ruthlessly organized assistant. Her skills and reserved demeanor are perfect to run his campaign, but her brilliant brain has become a temptation he’s been fighting for too long. Can he convince her to take a chance on a long-term campaign for love or will his efforts end up in scandal?

Alyssa Block has admired the NYC mayor for a long time, but her secret crush is kept ruthlessly buried under a mountain of work. Besides, she’s not his type, and office scandals is not in her job position. But when they retreat to an upstate horse farm for a secluded weekend, the spark between them catches flame, and Jonathan sets those stinging blue-eyes on winning her. Can she convince him to focus on the upcoming election, or will she succumb to the sweet promise of a different future?

**For fans of Jennifer Probst’s Stay series, Something Just Like This is book four in that series.**

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Review:

I love a novella that has a great plot and characters that are well developed. I loved that Jonathan and Alyssa had worked together for a few years. I think that gave them a well developed relationship as co-workers and friends. The crush was innocent to start, but the slow burn grew. The political race was an added bonus because it added a depth.

Should a single candidate try dating while running for office? How will people who have known him take that? I could see the conflict it brought to the story and it felt very reasonable. Also, bonus points for the story being around Thanksgiving. Who doesn’t love a good holiday read? I can’t say either that I have read too many books around Thanksgiving.

What I didn’t love was the whole #metoo movement used as a reason why they may not get together. I don’t think people just go around accusing everyone that is a public figure like that, but I could be wrong. I just think all the other reasons why not seemed more feasible than that one. I do respect that she wanted to add something so current to the story, but maybe that’s not how I would have done it.

Is this a good story to read after you are stuffed with turkey and don’t want to move from the sofa? Absolutely. Definitely add a little after dinner wine to your glass too.
