*SPOILER* Don't read beyond this point if you don't want the "plot" ruined for you...
Ok, BIG Problem #1 - as an amateur genealogist I find the idea of a Working Class Canadian woman finding out that she is descendent from an English Earl and then all of a sudden she starts to call herself "Lady Mills", thinks she is actually a Blue Blood worthy of arranging her daughter's marriage as if its the 18th Century, somehow gets into contact with the mother of a current Earl in England and bamboozles the English woman into thinking her modern day Canadian daughter is "Upper Crust" marriage material...is ABSOLUTE DRIVEL. I am descendent from William the Conqueror and never once have I referred to myself as "Princess" nor thought I should be a part of that world. Only the biggest twit would actually behave as this mother does in the book, which as a character makes her incredibly unlikeable. Despite this, the author could have made it work if the main character wouldn't have gone along with her mother's schemes...but she does which only transfers the "twit-ness" onto the main character. Lets call it as it is...a Blind Date NOT an arranged marriage. I honestly expected from the description of the book that the main character would be Indian or something where arranged marriages are still a bit common place.
Problem #2 - There is no way an upscale Jamaican resort would double book a Billionaire and a not-billionaire in the same room...for the simple reason that their price points would be so unbelievably out of each other's "range" that I would find it more believable that she was put into the "maid's quarters" of his private villa by accident (similar name to real maid as an idea?) than what was written in this story. After all, she would have probably booked her vacation on expedia for the best deal on a budget and he would have booked through a travel agent with "no" budget. Same room? I don't think so. And IF such a mistake had actually happened, they would have bent themselves into pretzels to fix the situation for the simple reason he is a BILLIONAIRE! (and apparently a previous and well-liked guest, too)
Problem #3 - No character development. I said it before, but it deserves another mention. I already didn't like the main woman because she's obviously inherited her mother's stupidity, but I was never given any reason to like the main guy either. Their "love" was unbelievable and so fast that I felt like the author accidentally left out the middle part of the book.
If the author (or other writers) read this; remember it is ESSENTIAL to get constructive criticism on your work before you publish. If all anyone is saying is "its good" or "I like it" then your work has big problems and they are being too nice because they don't want to hurt your feelings.
The way the storyline was written was very cute in way of mishaps at the hotel & their "cute meet". It made me sad to hear the mother thought of her daughter as homely, not a beauty, & slightly overweight. Yet, when James sees her for the first time he sees a curvey voluptuous sexier the hell. I just thought the whole arraigned marriage thing was just a weird kind of funny way to write this story. Yet, in a strange way it work very well. I enjoyed.
James Carrington is a wealthy businessman who heads off to the same country, city and resort to get away from family, work and opportunist women that want him for one thing only.
A mix up at the hotel has the two sharing a room, with an instant attraction between the two, with James finding Jess gorgeously proportioned, unlike the skin and bones women he is used to. They are like two peas in a pod with similar likes and dislikes, conversing for hours on their first meeting, and for the next 10 days spending time together doing once in a lifetime activities.
Although with a physical and intellectual connection never felt by either, both keep secrets, with Jess heading back home to her prearranged marriage when she receives some heartbreaking news about James.
I did enjoy the story, very sweet, sensuous without gratuitous scenes, however I did guess the ending, which was somewhat a little too obvious so for that I had to give it a 3 stars. I would still recommend it as a short, nice read with not too much thinking required. Perfect for on the beach!
