Peek Inside Six Month Rule

Holly Chandler wants to make partner at her Chicago-based fashion event-planning firm. Will Evans just want to get back home to London to be with his daughter. When they’re forced to work together on a high-profile fashion show—a show that will earn each of them exactly what they want—their attraction is undeniable. A six-month fling was all they were looking for, but as their relationship nears its expiration date, they discover that walking away is not so easy, and maybe what they wanted is not really what they need.

"A pitch-perfect blend of sexy and sweet, this office romance had me hooked from the first page." Jennifer Blackwood, author of The Rule Book

She created the game, but the rules are about to change.

The second I met Will Evans in his three-piece suit with that hot as hell British accent, I wanted him.

That is...until he insulted my shoes and stole my corner office.

Now I have to work side-by-side with the surly British arsehole who just set my career back six months.

It's fine. That accent won't get to me, no matter how sexy it sounds when he asks permission to do things professionals shouldn't do. On the couch. In the corner office I still wish was mine.

Maybe we can't keep our hands off each other, but I'm sure as hell not falling for a guy who lives an ocean away. Because in six months, he's leaving for good.

I don't do broken hearts, but you know what they say...

There's a first time for everything.


"If you are in the mood for something not too heavy and love the idea of a British man asking "May I" , in that way to make your skin pebble and heart beat... then I would say this is your fun read." -Wendy @ Goodreads

"May I, just say that I adore A.J. Pine and her heartwarming second installment to The Kingston Ale House Series. And "May I" also just say that Pine has truly proved to romance readers out there that she can indeed write a love story that has chemistry, heart, raw emotions, and playfulness." -Michelle @ Four Chicks Flipping Pages

"Omg! A sexy British man with a good heart and a sexy as sin accent? Yes please!! And when he kept saying "May I", I melted right along with Holly!! The things this book did to my heart!! Gave me all the feels! I should be mad at Miss Pine for giving me anxiety but I loved this book just too much!!" -Michelle M. @ Goodread

"This book was captivating from the very first page. It's hilarious, heartwarming, and very sexy. Give it a try, I highly recommend it." -Bette @ Goodreads

"The balance of everything is spot on, the writing wonderful, the characters real.. Another awesome book by A.J. Pine!" -Samantha @ Musings of Madjy

"Love love loved this book. AJ Pine is always a fabulous writer and storyteller, but I feel like 6 Month Rule is one of her best works to date. Can't wait for the next one, but in the meantime, I think I might just reread. At least once more..." -Natalie Blitt, author of The Distance from A to Z

"5, May I, Stars!!! I absolutely adored this latest release by A.J. Pine. Six Month Rule is a delightful and captivating read, that will make you swoon, fall in love and wish on stars." -Amy @ Goodreads

"The story is full of sweetness and and fun and also a little tear stained and I love all of it." -Bente @ Goodreads

"What I can tell you is, be prepared to fall in love. Six Month Rule is a fantastic read from beginning to end. It's going to make you laugh. It's going to make you swoon. It's going to pull at your heart. But, most importantly, it's going to make you fall in love. This book has a little something for everyone and is a great summer read. I loved every second of it and can not wait to get my hands on more of this series!" -Amy @ NetGalley

I really liked this! For the blink of an eye this started out as an enemies(ish) to lovers story, but then quickly turned into "Listen. We have amazing chemistry and seriously want to bone each other so let's do that until you have to return to England."

If you’re looking for something lighthearted and “feel good”, then Six Month Rule is right up your alley. I’m finding that I really enjoy these “relationships with an expiration date” stories. The expiration date seems to add an intensity to when the hero and heroine identify and come to terms with ...more

This was a cute story. Maybe a little predictable, but still good. I mean, when you start off with a girl who has a six-month rule and a guy who is only in the country for six months, and their chemistry is off the charts, what do you think is going to happen? Of course, they both want more, but the ...more

About the author

A.J. Pine

AJ Pine writes stories to break readers’ hearts, but don’t worry—she’ll mend them with a happily ever after. As an English teacher and a librarian, AJ has always surrounded herself with books. All her favorites have one big commonality–romance. Naturally, the books she writes have the same. When she’s not writing, she’s of course reading. Then there’s online shopping (everything from groceries to shoes). And a tiny bit of TV where she nourishes her undying love of vampires, superheroes, and a certain high-functioning sociopath detective. You’ll also find her hanging with her family in the Chicago ‘burbs.
