Ari and Russel have one goal: Get their divorced bosses back together. If they can do that, maybe both of them will finally get the professional attention they’ve been looking for in their careers. But as their plan unfolds, they find themselves not only succeeding in their goal, but growing closer to each other. This book was exactly the kind of rom-com I love! It’s hilarious and filled with plenty of weather puns, but it also isn’t afraid to explore things like depression, religion, and sexism. If you’re looking for a good laugh (and maybe a little crying), this adorable workplace romance is a great choice!

A TV meteorologist and a sports reporter scheme to reunite their divorced bosses with unforecasted results in this electrifying romance from the author of The Ex Talk.
Ari Abrams has always been fascinated by the weather, and she loves almost everything about her job as a TV meteorologist. Her boss, legendary Seattle weatherwoman Torrance Hale, is too distracted by her tempestuous relationship with her ex-husband, the station’s news director, to give Ari the mentorship she wants. Ari, who runs on sunshine and optimism, is at her wits’ end. The only person who seems to understand how she feels is sweet but reserved sports reporter Russell Barringer.
In the aftermath of a disastrous holiday party, Ari and Russell decide to team up to solve their bosses’ relationship issues. Between secret gifts and double dates, they start nudging their bosses back together. But their well-meaning meddling backfires when the real chemistry builds between Ari and Russell.
Working closely with Russell means allowing him to get to know parts of herself that Ari keeps hidden from everyone. Will he be able to embrace her dark clouds as well as her clear skies?
