From Christina Phillips a sexy, new romance with a hero you won’t forget…
I'm not looking for love or a Happily-Ever-After because I know how that ends. I just need to concentrate on my degree and look after myself. But there's something about my boss, Harry, I can't resist. It's crazy since he's so hot and smart it should be illegal.
And then, just like Cinderella, I have my night at the ball and a midnight kiss, and for a week all my sexy daydreams come true. That fake date changes my life in a way I could never imagine. It turns out, Harry wants me too.
But I’m off to pursue my dreams, and he’s taking his business to the next level. There’s no way this fairytale has a happy ending, but that doesn’t keep me from wishing for it.
The attraction between Alice and Harry is truly one of the sweetest things. And I love the dual perspective the reader gets because we're able to see how each of the characters' pasts has really developed them into who they are, and who they can become - for better or worse. Usually the speediness of this relationship would upset me, but these two have known each other for a while, and it plays off really well when they get together.
I found the conflict between them to be petty, and frustrating at times. However, because I really liked each of the characters, I found that I was able to hold on until that pettiness dissipated.
This was a 3 star read for me - sweet and entertaining, but still missing that something that would make it a re-read for me.
