On a dare, Beth embarks on an unforgettable one-night-stand. This situation is what romance novels are made of. Although this is a typical scenario for a romance novel, the writing style and emotion conveyed, makes this an enjoyable and spicy read.
Of course, her one-night-partner turns out to be a most eligible bachelor billionaire – Jake Masters. As the story evolves, Jake is totally smitten with Beth. Use your “suspension of disbelief” and you have a billionaire chasing a blue collar girl (bartender) and making this a lovely romance story.
As I read this book, I was caught up in the daydream of actually having a hunk such as Jake chasing our heroine (and wishing I was the she). Gentle, passionate, caring…sigh! Yes, Jake was perfect in so many ways, throw in Rosie (our heroine’s dog), and this story becomes what dreams are made of.
I enjoyed reading this book. It was like a soft balm for a rainy afternoon, where you would lie on your sofa and just daydream the afternoon away.
