Review

Lucille P. Robinson of Alternative-Read.Com - "Girl of My Dreams is a superbly written story of true love & the kind of love that causes a woman to save herself for the right man. The story moves your emotions from calm to excitement to joy to happiness. Yes, a little fear shows its ugly face in there as well. A good, fast read brought to a satisfying end. A story that takes you into the heart of a woman's dreams of being in a beauty contest, desired by a rich handsome man, and admired by many fans."

Brenda Talley, formerly of TheRomanceStudio.Com - "The plot offered by Ms. Mandel is fresh, exciting and one that will definitely keep readers' attention.These characters were bold and diverse. The author has used her sense of humor, as well as her sense of adventure, to present the storyline. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this Cinderella Story."

Rose of TheLongAndShortReviews.Com - "Ms. Mandel brings us a fun twist on the traditional Cinderella story...Girl of My Dreams is funny, has great descriptions of the exotic locales the show visits, and is just an enjoyable afternoon read."
Pat White, Multi-Published Romance Author - "A diverting read with plenty of humor and tenderness...A fresh and charming Cinderella story."

George Thompson of PopSyndicate.Com - "Full of frills and laughs galore from beginning to end. Ms.Mandel knows how to bring flat images on paper to life by giving each of them something to do with the story she is weaving and does it quite well."

From the Author

I had tons of fun writing Girl of My Dreams. It was a huge departure from my first book, Two Wrongs, a murder mystery with a romance tucked inside. In Two Wrongs, the focus of the book was a tragedy and how the two characters learned to deal with it.

In Girl of My Dreams, the focus is the love story and how the two main characters from different backgrounds and life values can find common ground and learn to love each other.

I couldn't resist throwing in a bit of suspense in this book as well, but in a humorous way.
It seems I can't help adding romance to my mysteries and mystery to my romances.

I hope you enjoy Girl of My Dreams.

When Jillian Baker makes the impulsive decision to join a reality show, she has no idea just how big a deal it will become. Acting on a minor loophole in the rules, she goes from being the producer's assistant to a popular contestant on "Girl of My Dreams," a show where the winner will get the chance to wed a millionaire. Jillian didn't mean for it to be a fiasco--she just wanted to help when the show was a finalist short. Someone had to jump in!

Blake Caldwell is furious that his plain-Jane assistant went behind his back to get on his show. Even worse, she's hands-down gorgeous when made up, and the show's millionaire star isn't blind. How can he get Jillian off the show when she is easily the most popular contestant, and maybe even the girl of his dreams?

Full of heart and humor, GIRL OF MY DREAMS is a story about more than flashbulbs and PR bits. Family, love, and greed's temptation steer Jillian and Blake through the uncharted waters of life.

From Hawaii to Venice, L.A. to Paris, Mandel has written a charming tale that will leave readers with a smile in their heart and whistle on their lips.

This light hearted romance draws the reader in and moves along well with a bouncing tempo.
The story live centers on Jillian, a tried and true producer's assistant and her desire to win the heart of her famous employer, Blake. Although he never notices her while she works behind the scenes to support his effort to be a success outside of his renowned family name, fate grants her a chance to catch his eye...and she takes it.
When a food poisoning incident leaves the show without enough female contestants, Jillian leaves her temp job and steps into the part. Remade as a dream girl she must take on a new role in the public eye...as well as in Blake's. Wealth and glamor tempt the now bedazzling beauty into making a choice between her new world and her ultimate desires.

This is a delightful read that I recommend to anyone that enjoys a pleasant story or a light romance.

(added on review) I feel like I was a bit too harsh in my original review and just wanted to clarify a bit by noting this is a nice book with a cute storyline. I am a bit older now and have read some other books of this genre and this is actually one of the better ones. Even with that being so, I still rate it average at 3.5 stars. I am changing my review to four stars by rounding up.

A good, sweet story. Well maybe not sweet so much. The first half of the book was annoying in a way. In books guys are supposed to be sweet, not depicted as they are in real life. It bugged me how horny everyone was and went a little over board in my opinion. Glad there were no explicit sex scenes like most romances these days. That was refreshing anyway. The second half of the book looked up though and became sweeter. And I adored the ending. It is the kind of ending I always enjoy so that is a plus. The only thing about the ending I didn't like was when she said she paused the movie and yet when Blake came in the actress was crying on-screen. It was only like two pages appart. I dislike inconsistencies. Other than that the grammar mistakes weren't too bad and the story line was nice. I enjoyed the story, wasn't absolutely in love with it, but it was a very decent little book.

I think I will read some other stories by this author. :)

Morgan, congratulations on writing a wonderful and interesting story. I tell you how good your story is: I couldn't put it down. In fact I needed to read it until the final page.

You certainly have a great talent for storytelling. You left me hanging until the final page.

Congratulations again on writing a wonderful story.

it is a mix of the bachelor theme. this story is between to characters Julian and Blake. Blake is a t.v. producer and is tired of living in his mothers footsteps. he wanted to make a name for his own work. so he created a show call " girl of his dreams." it is just like the bachelor. everything was going great until his contestant got food poisoning. now he needed one more girl and fast.

Julian was Blake's assistant. After noticing the problem she was suppose to go outside and pick a pretty girl off the street. lets face it who wouldn't want to date a billionaire?! After quick thinking Julian decided to be the contestant. She couldn't let Blake's new show go down in flames. she secretly loves him. now Julian isn't a looker. she has big glasses and is a nerd. the makeup artist made her a bombshell. she was a big hit, even though she wasn't breaking any rules because she was a temp!

now here is where the book got predictable. Julian was thriving in the show while Blake got jealous. and a contestant will try to harm one of them... Julian will have to choose which guy she wants while playing in the game show and not blow it for any of them
