Book exchanged for an honest review:Kate Ryan is an associate lawyer for a big law firm in Miami. She has fifteen year plan that she follows like religion much to the dismay of her bast friend April. Kate is hoping to make partner in her law firm but it isn't looking likely to happen. Max Walker, a fellow co-worker and secret crush, informs Kate that neither of them made the partnership short list. Kate is upset and confused by this because she believes she's doing all the right things to get ahead. April informs Kate that she doesn't know how to suck up is the reason why she's not making partner. April explains that not everyone plays by the same rules as Kate does. April's boss Sam Goldblum takes an annual vacation along with Max Walker. Kate hatches a plan to get Sam to notice her enough to put her into the running for partnership. Kate thinks her plan might work but she's not really sure at this point. Imagine Kate's surprise when she sees another side of Max but her response to him leaves much to be desired. Will Sam notice Kate? What valuable lesson will Kate learn? Will Kate admit her attraction to Max? Your answers await in Going Nowhere.
I loved all of the elements presented in this book! The characters were fascinating, real, likeable, honest, and sometimes laugh out loud funny. I felt that Kate was very approachable person that felt if you followed the rules you'd get ahead. I admired her work ethic and her stance on sucking up to bosses as well. Max is just absolutely yummy. I will definitely look for this author's work in the future.

This light hearted romp moves quickly from office to cruise ship. Kate, a lawyer trying desperately to climb the ladder of success, abandons the idea of hard work for kissing up. Enter co-worker Max to offer contrast to the rude boss Kate is now trying to befriend. Though the end suddenly wraps up fast - this is a cute fast read. I recommend it for the beach this summer!
