Boston socialite Morgan Lett is literallygrainding her teeth behind the mask of sheer indifference and her inherent sarcasm. Her fiance just dumped her for her stepsister, the charity foundation she has given her life to is in danger of folding thanks to her stepfather, and now, the gorgeous man she bid on and won at a masquerade bachelor auction turns out to be a cold, emotionless jerk and her new boss.
Millionaite Alexander Bishop needs a fiancé. ASAP. The best that money could buy so that he can go ahead and take helm of the family business and his inheritance that he has groomed. Morgan, with her beauty and pedigree, is the perfect candidate. If only her sharp wit and humor doesn’t drive him crazy and he manages to keep his hands off her, no matter what his instincts are telling him.
When it comes to Mills & Boons, there is not much to expect when it comes to the main plot and narrative style; there’s bound to be a happy ending, and there’s going to be some heavy chemistry with heavy petting followed by a moment of distrust that will drive a wedge and act as a bridge later on. What I loked about the book, is the strength if the lead characters and the secondary characters that have been snucked in for future reference. I am always attracted to strong characters, irrespective of the gender. In this case, Alex and Morgan are a perfect complement to each other, who balance each other in their strength and their weaknesses. For the love of the characters alone, I am writing this review.
The title makes sense only when you read and understand the characterisation of Morgan. The cover image resembles a poster ad for some male model posing for calvin klein or something of that sort, and hence I do not like it. Considering the strength of the characters and their mutual chemistry, I would have expected something equally outstandinng.
My opinion: Loved the book for its brevity and the characters. But otherwise, recommending it those who love books of this kind, like my Mom!!
My rating: 3 out of 5
