The course of true love never did run smooth.

Like, for real, dude.


When a socially awkward finance-hotshot—aka me—grudgingly walks into Boston's famous Cheers bar to do happy hour with the insufferably misogynistic guys from work, I don't expect the cute bartender to salvage the rest of my never-ending workday with a cleverly disguised mocktail.


I especially don't expect him to talk Shakespeare to me.


Fate keeps bringing us together, just like the star-crossed couples in the plays Will loves to quote. But while the chemistry between us may be stronger than a stiff Cape Codder, it's clear that on paper, the math doesn't add up.


I can't help wondering if we're capable of an ending happier than Romeo and Juliet's. He's living in a dream world while my feet are planted firmly on the ground, and I can't risk my heart again on a guy who'll bail when the going gets rough.


Even if he does rescue me from a murderous juggling clown.


Fans of Lucy Score and Meghan Quinn will love this smart, feel-good, sweet-and-sexy romcom set in the late 1980’s—an era of big hair and bigger egos.

“This retro, hilarious ’80s workplace rom-com is nimbly delivered by author/narrator Karen White (Grey is her pseudonym) and Joe Arden…Kate’s querulous voice, crafted by White, contrasts her awkward social encounters in a male-dominated field and her feminist ideals…Shakespearean dialogue and an intense acting scene display Arden’s superb performance skills.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “This is a fabulous read that’ll take you back in time, make you swoon, and serve you with a heavy dose of nostalgia. Smart escapism at its finest! Five bitchin’ stars for What I’m Looking For!” —The Rogue Reviews

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Such a lovely debut from one of my favorite audiobook narrators! I loved the 80s nostalgia, the answering machine message lead-ins to each chapter, and be still my Shakespeare loving heart–a theatre actor hero (named Will) who quotes from the bard!” —best-selling author AJ Pine

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Not to give too much away, but there is a point in the story where Will, through his acting, is able to work through a painful part of his past. This scene to me, demonstrates what a wonderful actor Joe Arden is. The emotions he unleashes are so powerful it really took my breath away.” —Christie, Goodreads
