Get ready for a friends to lovers romantic comedy that works!When twentysomethings Molly Kidd and Ryan Murphy formed a startup company in Seattle three years ago, they agreed that they were perfect for each other—as business partners.
Molly made the rules: they will never date each other, they will never talk about their personal lives, they will never visit each other’s homes. Fortunately, they have so much fun spending so much time working together at the office that they barely have time to do or talk about anything else anyway.
Now that it’s winter and everyone at their small successful company is overworked and grumpy, Murphy gets this crazy idea that they should all take a work vacation at a resort in Hawaii. Yes, the woman who organizes the workations at this resort happens to be gorgeous, but Murphy believes it will benefit the whole team to have more work-life balance.
Molly refuses to admit that she’s intimidated by the thought of the most important guy in her life falling for this perfect lady, so she agrees to the trip despite being equally uncomfortable with the idea of relaxing in a bikini in front of her coworkers.
Turns out it’s impossible to draw a line between business and pleasure in the sands of Oahu, and giving in to temptation could lead Molly and Murphy to lose more than just their hearts. But would it be worth it?
THE WORKATION is a standalone romantic comedy, the first in the Work Less, Play More series.

The Workation was a decent read that tugged at a couple heartstrings, but left a lot of room for improvement.
The first third of the book gave me so much information on the company Molly and Murphy own, I thought it was a business proposal, not a romantic novel. And the info-dumping to learn about the supporting cast was a bit much at times.
Once they get to their destination, things got better, but only marginally. The back and forth of unspoken desire and love went of forever. Add in a second “love interest” and I was less thrilled. I don’t mind a rival, they add tension a lot of the time. But this one was a little too far fetched to buy into the tension.
