I will say that I enjoyed reading A Perfect Fit more than My Fair Lacey. Both novellas are great, but I connected more to the characters in A Perfect Fit.
My Fair Lacey primarily focuses on a woman trying to learn how to present herself in a sophisticated manner in order to impress high brow bankers with the hopes that she'll be able to obtain a loan. Lacey's transformation mostly involves developing an advanced vocabulary and upgrading her wardrobe. Of course, misunderstandings ensue while Lacey expands her vocabulary that is sure to earn a chuckle from the reader.
A Perfect Fit focuses on a scheming brother trying to lure his sister away from an obnoxious boyfriend by setting her up with a hunk of man candy. This novella was especially funny and a delight to read.
I often compare reading anything written by Janette Rallison to eating chocolate. It's delicious, sweet and consumed far too quickly
MY FAIR LACEY--Lacey Johnson wants to have her own restaurant but the bank turned her down for a loan. Her roommate's brother Garrett Halifax needs to do a dissertation and helping Lacey get a better job by changing the way she talks and dresses is going to be the topic of his dissertation. Garrett also wagers his sister's boyfriend, Anthony, that Lacey can get a better job which is how A Perfect Fit comes about.
Lacey is from a family that's never had a lot of money, but she's a wonderful person who's a hard worker and cares about her family so much that she dropped out of college when her father got cancer. She's very rough around the edges as far as speaking properly and doesn't care much about what she wears as long as it's modest and clean.
The story reminded me a lot of the TLC show What Not to Wear except this also included English and grammar lessons. Garrett is super sweet and shows a lot of patience with Lacey. As always Janette Rallison has some hilarious scenes and funny dialogue. I loved the story of Lacey's date with an out-of-towner, and the conversation at the art gallery when she confuses the word neophyte with nympho was priceless. You can't go wrong with a rags-to-riches type of story especially when it all works out for everyone in the end.
A PERFECT FIT--JoJo Halifax's brother, Garrett, doesn't like her boyfriend Anthony at all, so he makes his roommate from Harvard, Wyatt Nelson, a deal he can't refuse. Garrett will hire Wyatt as his assistant at Kenworth's for the summer with double the pay, and he can stay in the guest room at Garrett's condo rent free while he dates his sister, JoJo, to get her away from the pretentious Anthony, or "at least fall out of love with Anthony". There's also the homecoming game parade float contest going on which enables JoJo and Wyatt to spend time together.
Wyatt is handsome, witty and funny, while Anthony is a manipulative, pretentious artist who thinks he's smarter and better than everyone else. The more time JoJo spends with Wyatt, the more she sees how different he is than Anthony. Unlike Anthony, Wyatt thinks she's a talented artist. I loved the family dinner scenes. I originally read this story as part of the Second Chance Kisses (Echo Ridge Romance #4) and it was one of my favorites in that collection.
Both of these stories are clean romances and I think they'd make great romantic comedies.
My Fair Lacey was my favorite - I have never liked My Fair Lady because it is degrading to women, however, I loved Rallison's remake! Garrett helped Lacey in a supportive way to improve her speech and dress but not to change her personality. He was respectful to her too. I love 1st person narrative because we don't know what Garrett is thinking - just his actions. Lacey is fun and I was impressed with how hard she worked! I also loved learning new words with her!
A Perfect Fit. Wyatt was just swoony! I think Anthony was very well written and a perfect example of how a boyfriend can be manipulative but how Jojo fell for it. Having previously been in a relationship like that, I related to Jojo's feelings and reactions.
Once I started I had to read both the same night so I loved that the ending completed both love stories!
Content: Clean (there are a few innuendos but still mild)
Ending: Together they can be Stand-alone HEA

I love the modern twist on My Fair Lady in My Fair Lacey - plus I liked the ending of this much better than the movie ending.Read more
