I don't know why there are so many negative ratings. This book was well written and easy to read. The story line was so believable, and the main characters touched my heart and soul. Yes, there were a few minor errors, so what? It didn't take away from the story, at least for me and I'm really picky about that kind of thing. All you have to do is go back and read my other reviews, to see how many times I deducted for those kind of errors. But not this time, because they were minor errors and they were so few.
This story starts off with a big misunderstanding, and grows from then on. First it her fault. Anna Findlay hired a man from an agency to escort to take her to a high school reunion. One that she had been dreading since the day she left home to attend college. Her high school years were a complete nightmare, but now that she's made a success out of her life as a very popular book author, she wants to go back and rub it into their faces. The only thing is...she doesn't have a date to go with her. Hence her need for an escort.
She had been watching the clock and waiting in the hotel lobby for her escort to arrive, when she spots a long, tall, hunk of a man crawling out of a shiny new black SUV in a black tailored tux. She automatically assumes that he's her hired escort, and then gets really irritated when the escort proceeds to keep talking to the doorman about sports. At this point they are already late, so she goes outside and practically drags him along.
Jed Walker ( who's not only a self made billionaire, but also the sole owner of a major t.v. network)finds himself in shock at the woman's behavior, but at the same time... he's also very intrigued by the beautiful woman so he decides to play along. On the drive there Anna continues to berate him and keeps referring to him as someone named "BOB". Jed keeps snickering under his breath, which only pisses Anna off even more. She also keeps saying something about a 'no sex clause', which has him even more confused.
From then on it's one long string of misunderstanding and assumptions between the two, which sometimes becomes so hilarious. Other times it causes some really emotional damage. When a woman named Trinity pulls a prank on Anna and Jed out her own pure jealous rage, Anna is devastated and runs back home to her foster parents house.
It's there that Anna finds herself revisiting her past, and finds herself learning that she has never been comfortable in any of the personnas she has invented for herself.
She can run all she wants, but Jed will not stop until he finds her and tells her the whole truth and wins her back. He has too....because there is no life worth living without her in it.
It takes falling in love - and Christmas with her foster parents - to show Anna that all she needs do is be herself.
Would I recommend this book? Yes, in fact; I highly recommend it!
