Flint Hopkins finds the perfect tenant to rent the space above his Minneapolis-based law office.

All the t’s are crossed and i’s dotted on Ellen’s application. Her references are good. And she’s easy on the eyes.

Until …

Flint discovers Ellen Rodgers, Board-Certified Music Therapist, plays music. Bongos, guitars, singing—not Beethoven administered through noise-cancelling headphones.

The cut-throat attorney serves up an eviction notice to the bubbly, constantly humming redhead who's too sexy for her own good. But luck is on Ellen’s side when Flint’s autistic son, Harrison, takes an instant liking to her. A single dad can’t compete with guitars—and rats. Yes, she has pet rats.

This woman …

She’s annoyingly happy with a constant need to touch him—adjust his tie, button his shirt, invade his space, and mess with his mind.

Still …

She must go.

Their lust-hate relationship escalates into something beautiful and tragic. This sexy, romantic-comedy explores the things we want, the things we need, and the impossible decisions parents and children make to survive.

There’s something thrilling, even a little forbidden, about a man in a perfectly-tailored suit. Flint Hopkins wears the hell out of a three-piece suit.
Not a single wrinkle.
Not a hair out of place.
Not a scuff mark on his shiny shoes.
His lips move, but all I hear is “I wore this suit for you today” as his hands make their rounds: caressing the buttons on his jacket, twisting his cufflinks, and adjusting his tie. It’s sophisticated fidgeting.
“You said you’re a therapist, not a music teacher.”
Observant men are sexy too.
“I did. And I am. Specifically, I’m a music therapist. Do you want me to explain what a music therapist does?”
“No. I just want you to look for a different space to rent. I’ll give you two weeks.” He turns and makes it out the door in three long strides.
My toes are on his heels in seconds, chasing him down the stairs. “Wait? You’re evicting me?”
“I’m giving you notice.”
“Notice? You’re kicking me out for what? Doing my job?”
“Preventing me from doing mine.” He pushes through the door at the bottom of the stairs and makes a sharp right.
“Hey, Boss, how’d it—” Amanda’s gaze moves from Flint to me as I follow him into his office.
“Hi, Amanda. Would you happen to have the name of a good real estate attorney? I may need to sue my landlord for wrongful eviction.”
“Um …”
Flint turns, halting my forward momentum a second shy of slamming into his chest. “Shut my door, Amanda.” His eyes narrow.
I don’t care how hot this guy looks in a suit. I won’t recoil under his glower. “Please leave it open, Amanda. I may need you to be my witness.”
Arrogance tugs at his mouth. “A witness?”
“For when you threaten me.”
He unbuttons his jacket and takes a step back. A whoosh of oxygen leaves my chest like it’s attached to him. The man has an air of confidence and mystery about him that commands attention.
When he turned around to face me a few seconds ago, I sensed the slightest agitation in his narrowed eyes and flared nostrils, but not anymore. It’s not hard to imagine Flint Hopkins in a courtroom—cool, calculated, ruthless.
“You seem to be an intelligent person, so surely you can see how the noise level of your profession could distract me from doing mine. I think sharing space with other businesses is not a good idea. You need a building of your own or maybe you should work out of your house.”
“I live in an apartment. And I’m sorry, Mr. Money Bags, but I don’t have the cash flow to buy or rent a building all to myself. You’re an attorney. How often are you even in your office? And when you are, what are you doing that requires complete silence? Charming snakes? Narrating audio books?”

And you're the first breath of oxygen that's touched my lungs in ten years, he whispers in my ear. 

Look the Part is the third book I read by Jewel E. Ann. Just like with the previous two, the author has created such great characters in this book. Opposites attract seems like a perfect way to categorize the relationship between Ellen and Flint. Ellen is super out-going, sweet, sassy and uplifting. Flint is withdrawn, stubborn, headstrong and wants everything to go his way. When these two meet each other for the first time, I just knew their interactions would be full of banter and that each of them would try to out smart the other. I loved Ellen so much. She was such a fun character and I enjoyed seeing her going against Flint. I also loved her profession as Music Therapist, because it fit her personality perfectly. Plus she has pet RATS (SO AWESOME!). Flint is a Lawyer, and he certainly acted like your typical Lawyer. 

I want to be his greatest strength- and his greatest weakness. I want to be where he hides his lies and finds his truth. 

There is also Harrison, Flint's autistic son, and I will guarantee you guys that he will steal the show many times. His straight forwardness and speaking without a filter resulted into such awkward and embarrassing moments for Ellen and Flint. It seriously had me laughing out loud a couple of times. I especially loved the interaction between Ellen and Harrison, and also him and her pet rats. This friendship drove Flint crazy which I loved. There is also a very strong attraction between Ellen and Flint, and when these two came together it was very explosive. Of course not everything is light and fun, because both of these characters have gone through some things in their pasts and are still struggling with it. Especially Flint has a lot of feelings of guilt and doesn't think he deserves to be happy and find love. However, he can't resist wanting Ellen and building a family with her. 

If you want to know more then make sure you pick this book up. It was such a fun and awesome book, with a couple of emotional scenes. It's another great book by Jewel E. Ann, and with each book I read by her I get the urge to binge on all her other books. This author comes up with the most refreshing stories/characters and I just can't get enough of it. Look the Part is a phenomenal contemporary romance and I highly recommend it to everyone.
