Jennifer and Ian have known each other for seven years, and they’ve always been at war. They are leaders of two different teams in the same merchant bank, and are engaged in a running battle to be number one.
Until one day, they are forced to work on the same project, managing the money of a rich aristocrat. They have to spend a lot of time together, even outside office hours. Ian is the most wealthy and sought-after bachelor in London, and an innocent evening spent at the same table is enough to land him and Jennifer on the gossip pages of a tabloid.
Much to his surprise, Ian starts to realise that being with Jenny could have its benefits: the photos have discouraged all the vacuous girls that usually flock to him. Pleased to be rid of them, Ian makes Jenny an offer she can’t refuse: to have free reign of their rich client if she pretends to be his girlfriend. But soon, it becomes more and more difficult to tell the difference between fiction and reality…
Light-hearted, charming, and delightful.
This story is truly a contemporary approach to the classic happy-ever-after fairy tale, complete with the handsome, rich Lord, and the intelligent, strong-minded commoner.
The prose is clear and precise, The plot is interesting, well paced, and entertaining. And the characters are sweet, amusing, while at times maddening.
Overall this is a nice, romantic, easy read that would be perfect for a relaxing day in summer.
Thank you to NetGalley, especially Aria Fiction, for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.
