"""Sam Becker enjoys almost everything about his job managing a bed-and-bath store, except for his awful boss, Jonathan Forest. While confronting said boss, Sam hits his head and--well, the details don't matter when the result is that he fakes amnesia to avoid being fired and moves in with Jonathan so that he can be looked after. The screwball setup of Alexis Hall's 10 Things That Never Happened (Sourcebooks Casablanca, $16.99, 9781728245102) leads to a poignant love story, told through Sam's amusing first-person voice. The close perspective puts the reader shoulder-to-shoulder with Sam, who is actually holding some important stuff back. Closed-off Jonathan is a typical workaholic, yet the attraction between the two housemates grows and becomes impossible to ignore despite the boss-employee taboo. The authentic emotion at the center of this romance will win readers' hearts and make them care deeply about these characters and their hopeful happy ending."" -- BookPage ""Enemies-to-lovers romance between a grinning nihilist sunshine and a deeply withdrawn sensitive grump..., perfect for romance lovers and newbies alike."" -- Library Journal ""Fans of grumpy/sunshine romances will eat this up."" -- Publishers Weekly"
