Petty Cash by Kimberly Vargas gives us a glimpse of what goes on in the corporate world. On her 5th anniversary as an assistant at Blue Chip Financial, Rebecca Blake thinks that she will be promoted to Project Manager. However, Dr. Albert Noble, her boss, instead sends her to Richmond, Virginia to participate in a week-long Behavioral Coaching program nicknamed “Club Detention” where she can learn to work on her credibility. Rebecca is partnered with Foster Diamond who, on the other hand, has the highest IQ scores of any other person in the company but needs to learn to be gracious and polite. The training course is designed to improve employee behavior but when their partnership turns to something romantic, Rebecca and Foster need to face their differences if they decide to save their relationship.

Kimberly Vargas’ Petty Cash is a delightful romance novel that is entertaining and well-written. The chemistry between the main characters – Rebecca and Foster – is perfect, making them both likable. They are so entertaining that you would not want anyone to disturb you while following their story. What makes this book truly successful is it does not bore the reader. Instead, each page continued to intrigue me and made me want to know where the relationship of the two characters was going. The dialogue is not shallow - it is not philosophical either - but the fact that everything they say makes sense is enough to make this a must-read romantic story.
