Oh! That was wonderful - and, yes..guys like that exist.
Author's Response: I suppose Jim's love life will have been dissected in many forums that I haven't been able to access due to discovering The Office too late, but I've always thought of him as a very successful guy. A guy who flirts with someone like Katy with two sentences, he knows how to seduce. I took Jim a little further.

So that's a really interesting way to start out this chapter. To have them just go for it like that. Then for Pam to throw Jim's notebook back in his face like that afterwards! Wow. Gotta say, he kind of deserves it.
Quite a bit of anguish for Jim there. Trying to figure out how he's going to talk to her, if she wants to talk to him. I will say the fact he doesn't try to hard to follow her speaks well for him. Though his past habits of just bull rushing through things seem to be kind of hard to shake. Telling Pam he's taking her to work rather than asking. No wonder Pam's got trust issues with the guy.
Fortunately she does give him one more chance. He's smart enough to not mess it up either. She doesn't let him off the hook either, which she shouldn't. Him being completely open and honest though seems to be the only way to move forward and it looks like it's working too. That he also gives her the notebook to burn seems big for them too. Nice to think they'll be able to move forward in a much more positive place going forward.

Author's Response: Thank you very much for all your comments. I must say that your analyses of the chapters make you see your characters in a different way than what you have in your mind. It is very gratifying.

So Jim's falling head over heels for her. And it's also getting him to clean up his act a bit. Though his past and the record he kept of it are a big hurdle at this point.
I did like that he stood up to Roy like that. And got some backup too. Really nice to see.
An impromptu first date as well! Clearly they're hitting it off well. Though for Jim to just go in for a kiss when she already has history of a man in her life taking from her rather than asking seems like it's another hurdle. I could very much see that Pam is thinking that she'd just be another name in that book. I wonder how and if they'll be able to overcome it.

Ummm, what's wrong British sports?? But also, fair, they are pretty boring, I'll let you have that.
Roy really is the worst in any setting. I'm hoping that's the last we've seen of him.
Glad Jim finally won Pam around for dinner. Hopefully he'll get another date or two from her

I, like you love Betty la fea. The are a lot of versions of the soap, but the Colombian original is the best!
Great first chapter, Jim as a player is always fun to read. Hopefully Pam will never find his notebook, but if she does I'm sure the drama will be jucy.
Can't wait for more
Author's Response: Thanks for your comment, and I love to see that there are still fans of Yo Soy Betty la Fea. What a fantastic and well written series.

Great start, really looking forward to more. Had an internal giggle that I am currently writing a little Larissa/Jim smack talk for my own next chapter.. adore sibling banter.
Really looking forward to where this is going and what the dynamics between Pam & Roy are in your universe!

So this is a different kind of Jim we're seeing. I do have to agree with Larissa a bit here. Seems like yeah Jim is just looking to use women. That he keeps a log about it kinda proves that. But then Pam shows up. Clearly there's something else about her that throws him off. Maybe it's because she just doesn't swoon at him simply because he smiles at her. She's left an impression that's for sure
Typical boorish Roy showing up. Still it was nice to see Pam standing up to him like that. Despite that it feels like this Pam is just recently out on her own for the first time, she does have a bit of fire to her. Good to see.
Should be interesting to see where we.go from here.
