Description: Camilla Sweeten is serious about her job in the County Attorney’s office. She’s even working up the courage to ask her boss to consider her for promotion to deputy.

Then, into court walks the gorgeous Zane Holyoake, and disaster strikes—in the form of a total brain fog right in the middle of her closing arguments. In front of both her boss and the meanest bear of a judge in the county, Camilla hears herself saying, “Like, I totally made my point,” as though she’d flown in from1980s California in a time machine airplane.

Now her boss will never consider her for deputy—especially since Zane turns out to be a new lawyer, possibly brought in to steal her dream job.

But when a notorious criminal is caught in their county, Camilla must focus on getting the thief convicted and not on Zane, who smells heavenly and is bent on distracting her with lunch offers and wacky Boy Scout stories that may melt her many resolves.

It’s going to take incredible willpower to ignore this attractive nuisance. 

My Review:  I love a persistent and determined man who knows exactly what he wants and that's just what Zane is. When Zane walked into the courtroom, all reason flew out of Camilla's mind and she ends up making a fool out of herself. 
In a way, these two remind me of the Loony Toons characters PePe Le Pew and Penelope. Camilla is desperate to avoid the clutches of Zane and will do anything possible to shoot him down, avoid him, and escape his presence. Zane, on the other hand, will do anything to trick Camilla into a date, to woo her with his charms and good looks, and to capture her time and attention. He's not perfect and does things to drive her crazy, but she has a hard time resisting his smooth charisma.

Camilla is very committed to work, since she doesn't have a family. That kind of loyalty is good, but she takes it too far, leaving no room for romance. It's explained why she does this, but I still had a hard time understanding it. Zane doesn't take much seriously and has very good reasons for his light heart. I enjoyed their banter and the way they learned to work together, trying to capture a criminal. I'm looking forward to what else this series will bring.

Content: mild romance (kissing); nothing else of note. Clean!

About the Author:
unnamedFDRE9K6NJennifer Griffith studied French, German, Japanese, and a wee bit of Spanish in her school days. Her grandmother was Norwegian, and Jennifer grew up with lots of Scandinavian traditions floating around, including fabulous cardamom laced cookies called Krumkaker, made on a fancy waffle iron. However, she’d never dream of trying to teach someone any of those languages. And she might botch the cookies. Instead, she writes novels in English, drives her five kids a million places, and laughs with her husband, who came up with the plot for Immersed because he’s just a cool muse like that.
