From New York Times Bestseller, Mimi Jean Pamfiloff, Comes Book Three of the OHellNO Series, DIGGING A HOLE. (Standalone.)


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.

I am a ninja squirrel. Who else but Mimi Jean would come up with a line like that. I need to remember to put down my book before taking a drink, when reading one of Mimi's books, as I keep starting to laugh in the middle of a sip. This book is no exception, nothing is ever as it seems. Everything from naked yoga and computer hacking, to false identities. Mimi's characters are interestingly complex and get better with each book she writes, and Sydney and Nick are a wonderful addition to her cast of characters. Cannot wait to see what she comes up with next.

Review: One of the things that I loved about this story is the witty writing. I was reading at work (don't tell) and at points I was laughing out loud and had to stifle my laughing. Where she comes up with this stuff I don't know, the kidnapping and the nudist camp is hilarious. Not saying there is not a lot of heart there is. Nick and Georgie/Sydney's first meeting has to be one of the most awkward and tense first meetings ever. Everything that can go wrong for Georgie seems to happen, but the one good thing is her meeting Nick and their love story. Nick, is a very complicated character. He comes off at first as a real piece of work. A jerk, cold, uncaring, but as the story goes on I fell in love with him just like Georgie did. There is more to him that is revealed as the story goes on and he has way more depth to him. There is a lot of "will, they?" "won't, they?". I have read Ms. Pamfiloff and always like her fun and sexy writing style. Now, I have not read the other books in this series, I fully intend to though. 4Stars *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book provided by the Author.*

Favorite Quotes: … we both know if we were a herd of elk roaming the tundra, I’d be the limping doe trailing a mile behind the rest with a giant “eat me” sign on my ass. I am a warrior squirrel… We move silently like the wind. We sneak to get what we want. But most of all, we crack nuts. When I look in the mirror, one of my fake eyelashes is stuck to my chin. Nice. You’re a born princess. My father flashes a sinister smile that touches his eyes, and I’m suddenly ashamed of every one of my body parts that looks like him, right down to my green irises. 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.

My goodness this story just grabs you and does not let go even days after reading it! Loved this entertaining, emotional, engaging and lough out loud fun, enemies to so much more journey.... Sydney Lucas is a sweet, charming, painfully shy and determined to prove to her family she can be so much more that what they see her as, the baby of the family and a wall flower. Nick Brooks is sinfully sexy, yet rude and thought of as meaner than a hungry alligator. He is also Sydney's new boss that sends her hiding in bathroom crying more than once..... Loved every unexpected twist and turn in this awesomely thrilling romantic adventure!

3.5/5 Digging a Hole picks up the threads of the plot from the ending of Oh Henry. Featuring Henry's youngest sister Georgie, painfully shy yet determined to break out of her self-imposed prison in order to help her family following the Machiavellian schemes of their father.  Digging a Hole was not at all what I expected, while there is romance it is a very small percentage of the plot. For the main part, the story concentrates on Georgie's character development in overcoming her debilitating shyness and taking control of her life. Anyone with a form of social anxiety will immediately empathize with Georgie and loudly cheer her along when she makes progress in standing up for herself. There are some hilarious moments that lighten the overall tone of the narrative and add to the vast range of emotions throughout. However, the most important and surprising element of Digging a Hole was the exploration of the social problem concerning the price of life-saving medication and the control pharmaceutical companies have over the costing. Examining the impact it has on families as a result

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. You can always count on Mimi to deliver loveable characters, crazy twists and loads of enjoyment!

Oh my heavens, this book had me in stitches. I haven't read the first two books but it didn't drastically affect my ability to enjoy the book. Each story can fully stand alone. Georgie, under the guise as Sydney Lucas, was a wonderful heroine to me. I suffer from social anxiety so to see the way she was almost afraid of her own shadow but then drew from the inner strength of her "warrior squirrel". I loved that she hid her name to get an internship for the purpose of showing her family she was not the fragile flower they all think she was. Nick, who is also Sam, was a surprise. At first I could not stand him . But he surprisingly grew on me the more we get to know him. I can't go into too much detail why as I don't want to give out any surprises. I liked how the characters felt real and like you know them. The story flows well, the interjections of flashbacks to what they went through after being kidnapped were perfectly timed to add to the story. I'll be enjoying more of this series and trying other series by this author in the future.

This is my first read by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff, but I didn’t feel lost jumping into the series at book three. I will let a little secret out of the bag because this is revealed in the first chapter, but the Sydney Lucas described in the blurb is actually Georgie Walton. Georgie is Henry’s shy little sister. She’s out to prove to her family that she can help running the family business. What is the best way to do that? Go undercover and become an intern at a company she and her family own. Georgie, with the help of her friend Abi, gets an internship working for Nick Brooks, the VP of sales at a pharmaceutical company called PVP. She’s told Nick is the biggest bastard there ever was, but he gets results. Georgie is full of nerves, but somehow makes it through her first day as Sydney Lucas, PVP intern. Nick Brooks is an a**hole. Period. First impressions don’t often change for me, but Pamfiloff does a one eighty with this guy you’ll never see coming. I ended up absolutely loving him by the end of the book and hope he returns with Georgie if/when the series continues. This book is written in the first person point of view of Georgie and goes back and forth in time between the present and four months earlier. A traumatic event occurs and needs to be told in that past timeframe, so I didn’t mind the time jumping at all. Digging a Hole was a funny, sexy read that I devoured in less than a day. If you’re in the mood for a romance with twist, turns, and comedy of errors galore, this novel is the one for you! I received this book for free. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Every time I read a book by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff I know I will be entertained. This book had a bit of intrigue, suspense, laugh out loud scenes, a few different aliases, and of course a happily ever after. Who doesn't love a jerk of a boss and a shy intern?? Well, Sydney can't take her jerk of a boss anymore, he really is awful. And she's not really who she says she is. So, she needs to find her inner strength and stand up for herself!!! But....Is her boss really who is says he is???? A must read!!!

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.

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!

Who’s fooling who and what are they going to do about it? When the meanest boss EVER meets the shy, sweet intern, the only thing that isn’t clear is who has the biggest secret! Mimi Jean Pamfiloff’s latest quirky, laugh riot of a romance, DIGGING A HOLE, the third entertainment-filled entry in the OHellNo series does its predecessors proud! As if her recent adventures haven’t been enough, her shy, “don’t look at me” demeanor is about to be flushed down the toilet when our undercover intern finds being a doormat for her pompous boss wasn’t in her job description. Will she pull the “My Daddy owns the company” card or will she find that standing up for herself (or her alias) just might put Mr. I Am An A**, Nick Brooks in his proper place? Good Grief, MJP had me almost in tears of laughter, yet, I could feel my inner “I Am Woman” fist pumping for Sydney/not Sydney. And the big boss’s little twist? It’s huge and clearly our girl is up for more than one challenge! As always, start to finish, light-hearted, frenzied fun, because revenge can be so sweet! I received a complimentary ARC edition from Mimi Jean Pamfiloff!

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.
