This book starts out with Lizzie telling her parents she's getting married. They do not approve of her marriage, but things go south when she finds out her father lost all of there money and may be going to prison. Now when Lizzie goes home to tell her fiance Con, things go from bad to worse when she learns somethings about him she never would have thought possible.
Now with Lizzie's life in shambles, Con feels guilty so he tries to do what he can to help her out. Things get all kinds of messed up with Lizzie comes up with a scheme to get money for her and Con. And Con just goes along with her because he feels guilty.
I have to be honest, I didn't really like the hero, or the heroine at all. It made me dislike the story some as well. I really didn't start to like it till about eighty percent into the book. Then I actually liked what was going on. And I really enjoyed the ending it was sweet! So over all I would say the book was okay. It has an interesting plot line, but I just wasn't feeling it was for me.
I would like to point out first that due to the sexual content this book is for mature readers. Which mean there is some pretty hot stuff!
Lizzie Hathaway had it all, heiress to an empire that she really had no desire to be a part of expectations she felt she could never meet in her parents eyes. However she meets Conroy Beale and he brought out her confidence to stand up to her parents, he made her feel beautiful and sexy something that she had always lack in her curvy body. He was gorgeous, wealthy, educated, everything she could ever want and he wanted her, or so she thought.
Everything comes crashing down around Lizzie and when she confronts Con and the truth comes out who he really is she can't believe that she was so stupid. That anyone could actually want her, could actually just love her for who she was. Conroy really cares for Lizzie but Love he's not capable of anymore. Heartbroken and angry Lizzie flees New York.
Lizzie hates Con actually she hates that she still cares for the man and when he shows up to save her from herself she is determined to get back at him for hurting her this time.
In a rollercoaster of events Con and Lizzie both discover things about themselves that facing the past can only help clear a path to the future and sometimes Love is really all you need.
Jennifer Lewis really knows how to bring out the laughter and the heartbreak in one sitting you couldn't help but feel for these characters and in the end you felt as if you were right there with them.
Review copy provided for an honest review.
It took some time for me to warm up to the characters. In fact, I wasn't sure I liked them at first. Then I started to get emotionally invested in the outcome of their encounters, an it was on. I ended up rooting for and looking for the happily ever after. The ending was satisfying. Oh, and did I mention the sex was hot? I did? Well, it bears repeating.
I rated it 4 stars for the authors ability to change my mind about her characters with the strength of her story.

To start with, the characters were more bipolar than they were just irritating. It was hard for me to totally relate to Lizzie as a female character. At first was so excited that she was a full figured character, and about 30% through, they made her go depressed and she lost weight. It is later remarked that she is still 'curvy' where it counts but this story is supposed to be a month after the big awful (my way of not tossing in spoilers), and how is it possible for a girl that was basically like a size eighteen to suddenly loose enough weight to sport yoga pants and a sports bra living off Cheetos and Champagne? That just didn't work for me. There needed to be a more believable element with her transformation.
As for Con--yeah, he wasn't really a bad boy, he was just kinda thick headed. He claims that he can't love, well won't, because all the people he loves die or go away. Horrible things happen when you love.
We couldn't have come up with a better conflict?
Yes, those things did bother me, however, how strangely the characters were created and brought to live they somehow had this incredible chemistry that you actually could feel as a couple. I thought the story was a bit wordy, and drug us along with far to much tension that pretty much by the end I was like--Oh, please you all are still gonna not communicate?
But like I said, I still somehow enjoyed this book for the subtle flaws that I found without. I found that I wanted so hard to keep reading, yet there were painfully redundant scenes that I set my kindle down for a few hours before I went back and pushed through to get to more of the really clever banter, and the sexual tension. I think when you lay it all out the story had huge potential, could have been a five star from me, if both characters would have just talked a bit more instead of relying on clever snark to get them through each scene.
They were obviously in love.
The fact Lizzie didn't believe it at the beginning and took him at face value was silly to me. He was there, no one else was, and I think if she would have pushed him just a bit, he would have stayed instead of the month parting.
So, like I said it was the little things that made me struggle to love it--I think if some more deep flushing out went into the story I would have been sold hook line and sinker. I do want to read more of Jennifer Lewis!
