SHE’S THE SWEET SHY INTERN. THEY’RE ABOUT TO WRECK EACH OTHER CRAZY. My name is Sydney Lucas. I am smart, deathly shy, and one-hundred percent determined to make my own way in the world. Which is why I jumped at the chance to intern for Mr. Nick Brooks despite his reputation. After ten failed interviews at other companies, he was the only one offering. Plus, everyone says he knows his stuff and surely a man as stunningly handsome as him can’t be “the devil incarnate,” right? Wrong. Oh…that man. That freakin’ man has got to go! I’ve been on the job one week, and he’s insulted my mother, wardrobe shamed me, and managed to make me cry. Twice. Underneath that stone-cold, beautiful face is the evilest human being ever. But I’m not going to quit. Oh no. For once in my life, I’ve got to make a stand. Only every time I open my mouth, I can’t quite seem to muster the courage. Perhaps my revenge needs to come in another form: destroying him quietly. Because I’ve got a secret. I’m not really just an intern, and Sydney Lucas isn’t my real name.

    Digging A Hole is book three in the OHellNo series by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff. Oh Mimi Jean, you’ve done it again. I really had no idea what to expect going into this after the way Oh, Henry ended. You have again managed to amaze and surprise me. Note, while this “could” be read as a stand alone, it would be so much better if you read the previous book, Oh, Henry first. The characters are all recurring and even though the couple is different, the underlying story runs through both. Georgie Walton is Digging A Hole is book three in the OHellNo series by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff. Oh Mimi Jean, you’ve done it again. I really had no idea what to expect going into this after the way Oh, Henry ended. You have again managed to amaze and surprise me. Note, while this “could” be read as a stand alone, it would be so much better if you read the previous book, Oh, Henry first. The characters are all recurring and even though the couple is different, the underlying story runs through both. Georgie Walton is the youngest sibling of the Walton family, youngest child of Chester Walton, Billionaire business owner but more recently known as the man who faked a plane crash and kidnapped his three daughters and wife. Georgie is painfully shy, she always has been. She spent her twenty-one years hiding behind anything she could find to avoid having to talk to anyone. But now her family needs her. She’s tired of being patted on the head and underestimated because of her shyness. She is determined to help her family but first she needs to find a job as an intern to prove to everyone that she can make something of herself. There is an opening at one of her family’s businesses, PVP, Palo Verde Pharmaceuticals. So, she uses an alias and applies for the job. Meet Sydney Lucas. “I’m tired of being a fragile little mouse. I want to help my family and contribute, not be a burden. Especially at a time like this when things are such a mess.” Georgie/Sydney is prewarned that the man she would be interning for is not a pleasant man. But she still wasn’t prepared for Nick Brooks. He is the rudest, meanest, most condescending, most beautiful, sexiest man she has ever met. The way he speaks to her, the way he treats her, should get him fired. But she can’t help but think that there is something else there underneath that cold exterior. There was a glimpse of something else in those gray eyes. Still, she spent most of her first two days on the job sobbing in the bathroom. “The man is a monster. If it’s the last thing I do, I will stand up to him.” And it’s Nick Brooks goading that finally breaks her out of her shell. She’s determined to prove him wrong, to be more, to be stronger. “He’s the worst, the best, and the hottest piece of work I’ve ever met. Yet, when it comes down to it, none of those glaring contradictions seem to override my gut, which is urging me closer.” This book was actually pretty suspenseful. Nothing is as it seems. The entire book is told from Georgie’s point of view and the chapters go back and forth to what happened four months ago to Georgie and her sisters and mother, and to the present I was so proud of Georgie. She really was so strong, and so smart. When everything came to a peak, she was amazing! “Who are you? And where have you put our little Georgie” ”She grew up.” I am in love with this book. It has Mimi Jean’s quirky humor, plenty of snark, but also some sweet moments and some sexy times. It was a beautiful thing watching Georgie blossom. And blossom she did! There is no cliffhanger so you can relax. But we will hopefully get a little more of these two along with the rest of their family in the next book, The Battle Of The Bulge.

    I really liked this story, being shy myself I could identify with Georgie and I very much liked how she faced her fear, her dragon. The craziness surrounding her was really fun and I loved her friend Abi. I can’t wait to read about her. Review pending!

My Review: This was my second time reading Mimi Jean Pamfiloff and I enjoy her clever humor and amusing wit. Her smooth and engaging writing style has a breezy flow and is easy to fall into. Although it took me a good while to fully warm up to the main character of Sydney as her mousy meekness and deathly fatal timidity annoyed me, she seemed too spineless to sit erect and did not speak up but ran sobbing to the bathroom even when boiling over with anger over blatant mistreatment. It took me half the book to appreciate her intellect and fully comprehend the cost of her efforts to move past her paralyzing anxiety and tendency to freeze, or as described herself, “a girl who locks up like a bad pair of brakes when anything remotely overwhelming happens.” The storylines were smartly paced, well-crafted, and had a little sizzle and snap.

    Where does she come up with some of this stuff?!? Mimi’s mind must be a fantastic place. Filled with blood thirsty unicorns and now, warrior squirrels and naked yoga cults, I stand in awe of her imagination. Her stories are funny and twisty and filled with enough crazy sexiness that I can’t put them down. I couldn’t have anticipated where Digging A Hole was going, but I gladly held on for the ride.

Filled with blood thirsty unicorns and now, warrior squirrels and naked yoga cults, I stand in awe of her imagination. Her stories are funny and twisty and filled with enough crazy sexiness that I can’t put them down. I couldn’t have anticipated where Digging A Hole was going, but I gladly held on for the ride. Talking place several months after Henry (Oh Henry) learns that his family has survived the plane crash that the world thought took their lives, we get his sister, Georgie’s, story. The cripplingly shy baby of the family, Georgie embarks on a sneaky plan to show her family that she is a capable woman and no longer the meek girl they have always found her to be. By taking an internship under an assumed name in one of her family companies, she hopes to make her mark and prove her value. The only problem is, she winds up working for the boss from hell. Nick Brooks is fantastic. He is one giant jerk and I actually loved it! He was so over the top in his criticism, so rude, so flat-out mean that it was almost comical. But this was exactly what Georgie needed. As she put it, Nick was her own personal dragon she had to slay. With quiet strength and at her own pace, I loved watching Georgie shed her shy exterior and turn it into a cloak of confidence. She cocooned herself in it and I enjoyed watching her emerge stronger with her head held high. All because of her boss. Who was basically the devil, come to life in the body of a sales VP. I found the language of the book so endearing that one minute it would have me laughing at Georgie’s antics in sabotaging Nick, and the next, sighing in contentment as she describes Nick as “a man who can shed his armor for me, but at the same time show me how to wear my own.” The situations where outlandish, but the sentiments true and real. The writing was amazing, the story adorable, and the characters just plain fun. I am looking forward to the next in this adorable series which is sure to be a winner as well! Bring on the Battle of the Bulge!!

Book three in the OHellNo series continues with a book that can be read as a standalone unless you like to know the backstories of everyone in which case at least read Oh Henry. It's revealed pretty early in the book that Sydney Lucas is really Georgie Walton the youngest child in the Walton empire. She's doing this to prove to everyone that she isn't fragile and needs to be coddled. Her plan is to grow a backbone, learn something that will impress her siblings and prove to them that she can be strong enough to run the company with them. Her best friend gets her a job in one of her own companies as an assistant to the worst boss ever. Now all she has to do is stand up to him and not fall in love with him. This book really does take you on a wild ride, there you are driving along peacefully thinking things are going just fine then suddenly Mimi (the driver) takes a wild 90 degree turn out of nowhere and you are nowhere where you thought you would be and you loved every second of it. But that's how it is with most her books you jump into the book knowing it's going to be wild and newbies to her work either jump on the Mimi train or run away screaming. So, like Scar in Lion King said, Be Prepared. Overall, I think it's safe to say I loved this book. Nick and Sydney it's an emotional and angsty but at the same time it has you laughing book. For those who have read Oh Henry it does explain what happened when the Walton family went missing. This was a must read for me but then I do have my own car on the Mimi Train.

    I didn't think I could love or identify with a character more than Elle but Mimi went and did it again with this feisty heroine. I seriously laughed out loud and cried while reading this one. I'm pretty sure "fruitcake-f***ed-up" is my new favorite saying.

Also, it almost feels like you get introduced to those pieces as Skye coming to terms with what happened. I didn't see Brook's big plot twist coming. I love when an author keeps me on my toes and isn't so predictable. If you want a rom-com kinda book you can't foresee every plot twist coming, I definitely recommend this book! I devoured it in a single day. This book could easily be read as a stand alone or as part of the series.

    Sydney Lucas is the sweetest soul but she’s also shy, painfully, mind numbingly, paralyzingly, unable to speak shy. So why is she working for Nick Brooks the cruelest monster of a boss ever? She has something to prove to herself and to her family. She may not be able to gather the courage to tell him all the castigations in her head, but she can ruin him behind the scenes. She’s smart, she’s cunning and she’s got a secret. She’s more than an intern and her name isn’t really Sydney Lucas. Nick Br Sydney Lucas is the sweetest soul but she’s also shy, painfully, mind numbingly, paralyzingly, unable to speak shy. So why is she working for Nick Brooks the cruelest monster of a boss ever? She has something to prove to herself and to her family. She may not be able to gather the courage to tell him all the castigations in her head, but she can ruin him behind the scenes. She’s smart, she’s cunning and she’s got a secret. She’s more than an intern and her name isn’t really Sydney Lucas. Nick Brooks is a ruthless, cold hearted jerk with a reputation for business that can make your resume just by working for him. He has also insulted this intern and made her cry for the last time. Told strictly from Sydney’s point of view Digging A Hole jumps right into the present day; approximately 4 ½ months after the end of Oh Henry. Where she has just bombed the most recent attempt to land an internship by way of vomiting oatmeal on the interviewer’s shoes. When her best friend convinces her to apply for the internship with a pharmaceutical company working for the devil himself she’s shocked to be offered the job on the spot. Especially considering how the interview went, he barked, she squeaked, and with an extreme level of loathing he tells her she’s hired and starts on Monday. What could go wrong? From the start of the book you identify with Sydney and her struggles, as she flashes back to the horrors she survived just 4 months past all while trying to navigate through her new reality and growing as a person. Refusing to be chased from this job she deems herself Warrior Squirrel and Nick her own person Dragon to slay. The battle of wills between our two main characters is powerful, funny, and full of fury and passion. Clearly neither was prepared for the other as they each catch glimpses of character contradictions. It would have been easy to color with broad strokes, but Sydney and Nick have each have their own depths that can I can only describe as masterful. Mimi Jean Pamfiloff has this way of writing her characters with a level of humanity that you can’t help but relate to them on some level, not despite their flaws but, because of them. If you are looking for a heartfelt read that will make you laugh out loud, yell a little, cringe and never be able to even consider yoga without an internal cringe, then this is the book for you.

    Mimi Jean’s Walton family has put the ‘dys’ in functional. And what a very dysfunctional family they are. The story is funny with plenty of quirkiness between family and the businesses they operate. I enjoyed the banter and the subterfuge employed by everyone, and how all the plots come together. This one of the funniest contemporary romances I’ve read in awhile.

    There’s always a bizarre lick to Mimi Jean Pamfiloff’s stories that I can’t seem to shake off each time I begin a book of hers. ‘Digging a Hole’ isn’t too different, where in alternating chapters, the flashback story of a crazy-arse tycoon tries to kidnap his own family and subject them to naked yoga is recounted.

Add this to the general storyline of Georgie Walton/Sydney Lucas applying incognito for an internship within her family’s company under a mean, lean boss a few months later, the crazy does go a few notches up. But I’ll admit that my challenge with a Pamfiloff read is always sifting the good from the insane. And as a large part of the story had to do with what happened a few months prior to Sydney/Georgie working for Nick, well, that bit came off as the least believable. So needless to say, ‘Digging a Hole’ started off zany. Georgie banked on the fact that she was invisible to people, without a fake identity or social security card—because it was glossed over. On the other hand, Nick Brooks had no sweet side. He abused, she cowered. He insulted, she cried, even if it was deliberate bullying as a test to see if she stood up for herself. But when all was finally untangled, their convoluted, complicated relationship merely showed the gap (in every sense of the word) between Georgie and Nick, especially the former’s naïveté and at-times juvenile behaviour, with some cringe-worthy scenes that I actually wished didn’t happen. I did think that the characterisation of Georgie/Nick was shaky though, and them blowing hot and cold didn’t make it easy to get a grasp on either Georgie or Nick who seemed like 2 entirely different people by the time I was three-quarter way through the story. The long and short of it is, if Pamfiloff dialled down the zany in her writing, I really think I could have liked this a lot more. Fiction obviously calls for the suspension of disbelief, but every Pamfiloff book that I’ve read swings back and forth between being absorbing and plain mad while aiming to keep a rom-com lightness to everything—just sometimes makes it impossible to do so. That she’s got some gems of insights, unexpected twists and some good ol’ writing for a solid plot cushioned in between made the book worth it for me, though I really wished these took centre stage instead of the over-the-top weirdness that hit me full-frontal. Essentially, ‘Digging a Hole’ got good halfway through, as the odd bits finally, finally got left behind and the real thing kicked in, when the title finally made so much sense. I’m glad I pushed through to finish this.

    **My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review** Although this book 'could' be read as a stand alone, i would recommend that you should at least read book two before this one as there is a theme running between the two that would help you understand this one better.

Georgie is the youngest of the Walton's and she is also the shyest and quietest of them all and struggles in crowds and with talking to strangers. Wanting to prove to her family she can help she poses as Sydney Lucas and gets a job as a paid intern in order to learn some of the business, however she does not count on how nasty her boss Nick Brooks really is. Nick is not quite the man that he seems and is also hiding a secret, but the story keeps changing, so you never know quite who is good and who is bad, except for Chester Walton. However it is only under Nick Brooks that Georgie manages to find her voice and become who she wants to be, and in the meantime using her smart mind to help get the family out of a tricky situation, her dad jailed and in the mean time fight for what she wants. We also get a little taste of who the next book will be about, Mitch and Abi and i can't even imagine the spin and turns that the author will gives us for them to get a happy ever after. I really liked this book.

    3.0 stars The book had its sweet and engaging moments but there were too many flaws. The beginning was horrible, the heroine acted like a child and completely immature. Her "warrior squirrel" mode wasn't funny at all, I mean she is 21 years old and destroys the tires of his Harley just because he was an a-hole? He wasn't nice, not at all, but her revenge? Unacceptable! I couldn't stand the heroine at all, why the hero fell in love with her antics and found it charming is a complete mystery to me! 3.0 stars The book had its sweet and engaging moments but there were too many flaws.

I liked her more in the end, but overall she was childish and the age difference of 10 years was more than obvious. In my eyes they had no real chemistry and their romance wasn't understandable at all. And don't get me started on the "losing her virginity on her BROTHER's bed"!!! That wasn't hot, I found it disgusting and was surprised her brother wasn't angrier... who wants to find his sister having sex on the bed you sleep in? Find her virgin's blood on your comforter? Exactly, NO ONE! Additionally the hero was too "hot 'n cold" for me. I liked him, kind of, definitely more than the heroine, but I wished for more relatable actions from him. I didn't really understood his feelings for the heroine and how they developed. There were some "past" chapters telling the story of the abduction and her fathers actions, I skipped those completely. They weren't interesting or necessary, I don't think I missed something skipping those parts.

    5 'warrior squirrel' stars! Loved this story! "I'm deathly shy and have been since the age of five."

Georgie Walton usually prefers to fade into the background, however, her family are in a middle of a huge crisis and she's determined to do her bit. Unfortunately, it means showing them that she's made of sterner stuff, which means that she's got to pull up her big-girl panties and step way, way out of her comfort zone. Working for the meanest jerk of a boss is the ultimate definition of a baptism of fire...and doing so under a fake name only adds to the stress of it all. "Something just doesn't feel right about him. The abrasiveness then the kindness. He wasn't even mad about my little pranks. In fact, he seemed kinda happy." Nick Brooks might be beautiful on the outside, but he must be the ugliest and moodiest SOB that Georgie has ever come across. When his cruel verbal jabs finally make her bite back, their relationship turns a significant corner, and Georgie starts to realise that there are several things about her boss that don't add up. "Power is about being yourself, accepting who you are, and finding strength in that. Some of us do it quietly, and others do it with blazing guns." The books in this series always throw in something unexpected, but they are also always pretty funny. There were so many parts in this story that made me laugh out loud. I adored Georgie, her personal battles, and her spunkiness. Her journey throughout the story was a massive one. She absolutely needed someone to stop mollycoddling her and treat her like a grownup. I cheered when she shook off the shackles holding her back and came into her own. Nick was definitely an enigma. He was such a brute to her but then showed a softer, more caring, side to himself as they got to know each other better. This was funny, heartwarming read, with lots of hate-lust chemistry, and a great plot. Can't wait for the next book!

    I am DNF-ing this book at 58% I guess I am the only one to blame. I had too many expectations.The story did not go the way I thought and I skimmed through the last couple of chapters and spoiled myself. I totally plead guilty :(

When he asks her questions he's yelling at her and all she can muster is single words and nods of her head. Georgie knows she can't work at her families company under her name, so, she comes up with a fake name Sydney Lucas. Nick hires her as a paid intern. But, that Monday she starts she stays in the bathroom most of the day as he is a horrible boss / person and yelled at her! Georgie wants to work at the company to prove to her family that she is worth something that she can make a difference and isn't just some shy girl that needs protecting.

    He's the hero that you love to hate. She's the heroine you want to root for. Digging A Hole is hard to figure out, but an irresistible experience. Pamfiloff pulled a fast one. Nothing is as it seems. There's a little bit of everything in this story. The twists are rapid and never-ending. Giving away one would be like ruining them all. Don't blink. You might miss something. A MUST READ!

    This was one wild ride. A naked yoga cult, an asshole boss, shy PA and pranks galore. Was a good feel read and I found myself chuckling at the female MCs antics. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

    Okay, I'm just going to come out and say it: This.is.absolute.garbage. I don't know what happened, the previous 2 books in the series were good, but something went terribly wrong here. The characters were so... stupid, and superficial and oh my god Georgie girl GET A GRIP.

    The heroine was so unlikeable, there was too much self-loathing, too little confidence to make her endearing to me. I mean, she calls herself a dipshit, an idiot, a delusional woman. Who likes to read that crap?! Plus, it’s written from her POV, so it’s even more annoying because it’s like calling yourself these nasty names 🙄 🤦🏻‍♀️ NOT fun for the reader 🙄 And the hero? What a piece of sh*t 😠 there’s jerk, then JERK.

Plus, it’s written from her POV, so it’s even more annoying because it’s like calling yourself these nasty names 🙄 🤦🏻‍♀️ NOT fun for the reader 🙄 And the hero? What a piece of sh*t 😠 there’s jerk, then JERK. When you call your new intern “dumpster girl” because you think she doesn’t dress professionally enough, you’re a freakin’ a**hole. And there’s no coming back from that crap. You won’t ever grovel enough to make me forget about your nasty attitude. Here’s an actual excerpt: “Dear God, woman, spit it out or leave. I have things to do, none of which you’re qualified to assist with, given they require a functioning brain. Did your mother smoke and drink while pregnant with you, or did she just hit the crack pipe?” Ohmygod! He insulted my mother! Again! I feel the rage build, and I’m unsure if it’s because he’s picked on someone I love or because his words are particularly mean this time. “Well? Which is it?” he prods. “Because I know there has to be a reason for that thick, inbred look on your dumb face. And didn’t I tell you to stop stealing clothes from the homeless?” 😳 Dear Mrs Pamfiloff, this is taking it way, WAY too far. I don’t care that he was “testing” the heroine. Who is he, anyway, to decide he needs to test anyone? Sorry. That doesn’t work for me. Giving up 1/3rd of my way in. Big fat NO THANK YOU.

    Slaying Her Dragon Mimi Jean Pamfiloff hits the mark every time! She never fails to give her readers an exceptional reading experience. She gives us characters who have depth, intelligence, strength, and passion. They are witty, charming, and sometimes outrageously funny. The storylines are interesting, evenly paced, well written and thoroughly entertaining. Digging A Hole is no exception. I loved it! Georgina Walton needs to become a dragon slayer.
