I don't mind unrealistic in my books but this was too much. The heroine was a Mary Sue - a perfect woman who got everything she wanted without really working for it. Yes, there was some drama so the hero could save her again and again but it was equally unrealistic.
At the end her very important job suddenly meant nothing to her and the stuff from her grandmother, that she'd tried to hold on to, was apparently all forgotten because the hero had stored it for a whole year without any reason at all.
The book wasn't particularly well written but it had humor and some entertainment value. If you want a credible romance then this is not the book for you. If you want a teenage dream, then go right ahead.
This book is so damn good! I couldn't put it down at all. I mean come on I was reading on my phone while walking and ran into the damn door.
Kent is this spoiled rotten dropped dead gorgeous guy who is beyond rich. I loved this character the second he opened his mouth. I just couldn't get enough of him.
Beth is a young girl that came from nothing and was determined to be something. She just wanted to focus on her schooling and then move out of her home town. Well let's just say she wants to run from her past.
Is it really that easy?? Or will your past always haunt you??
Then Beth got this amazing job and she is now an underwriter at an amazing financial institution.
But then she met Kent....
The chemistry between these two is amazing. I love how they are the best of friends and how he is super protective.
Now please keep in mind there is way more to this story but I am not trying to spoil it for you.
But there are lies, trust funds, a proposal, an agreement, marriage, betrayal, chemistry, romance, hate, and love in the story.
Oh one last thing...the ending of this book made my heart skip a beat.
To recap, Bethany left her small town and bad memories behind after her mother stole her identity and left her with a ton of debt. She moved to Chicago and got a job as a bank loan underwriter, hoping for a fresh start. She met two men: Ken Plack, heir to Plack Industries, and Brian Benson, a finance banker. Ken was a total man-whore who only does one-night stands, and has no intention of taking over the family business, even with his Ivy League degree, but he only wanted Beth's platonic friendship. Brian is gorgeous and respectful, works in the same company as Beth, and is exactly whom Beth would want to marry... but Beth doesn't want workplace drama. When Beth's deadbeat mom and money trouble followed her to Chicago, Ken offered her a solution... He needed to marry to retain his trust fund (else it's going to charity). Ken offered to pay off her debts if they get married and get a divorce later. But that would mean giving up on Brian. Beth thought she can keep things platonic... but who does she really love in the end?
The story's pacing just felt... off. Brian is almost superfluous, as he gets his own love in 2nd book of the series. When he realized Beth really wanted Ken, he took himself out of the picture. How noble of him. Ken... was way too adorable, and I don't feel his own insecurities were that well explained. The problem with Beth is while she did struggle, it seems quite a few good things happen to her... She's the best in everything... except family drama that keeps dogging her. AND she found not one but two guys who adored her within weeks of moving to a new city. Eh...
Consider this really a 3.5/5 rounded up to 4
This was the first book I've read by Mia Kayla and I look forward to reading the second book in this series.
The story of Bethany Casse & Kent Plack is an interesting one. Kent really, really bugged me with his rich boy attitude. I felt like he could have been starring in a reality show of spoiled, rich kids. Bethany has worked to rise above her "destiny" in life. She allowed others to take advantage of her in the past and it was a joy to see her stand up for herself. HOWEVER, I wanted to kind of shake her also. I was angered about all who walked over her. In the end, the romance took over for me and I enjoyed the story for exactly what it is - a lighthearted fictional romance between two people. A modern day Cinderella story if you will.
I would recommend this book to others who are looking for a fun and fanciful read.
