From assistant to fiancée!
Joss Dawson knows the one thing that will make his dying father happy is to see his son find love…the problem is, he's sworn off love forever!
But the answer's simple! Asking his father's fiercely intelligent, beautiful assistant Eva to play the perfect role – his fiancée. Only for Eva it's not that easy…
Pretending to be Joss's fiancée threatens to ruin the life she's worked so hard for! And how will she keep her head when she's losing her heart to her frustratingly attractive new boss?
I loved the dual perspectives that the story is told from it gave a lovely rounded feel to the story to hear from both Joss and Eva. They were a perfect match but of course things never run smoothly and they both have heartache in their pasts that left them a little on the insecure side. Can they get away with faking a relationship or will it all end in tears?
The story was the perfect length for me to read in an evening and once I started I didn't want to put this book down. It is a sweet and heart warming story about two people who although attracted to each other are fearful of falling for each other due to their pasts. Joss and Eva's chemistry is perfect and you can see the sparks fly when they are together but I also loved how Eva is able to stand up to Joss.
Both characters had vulnerabilities which made them all the more endearing and I really hoped for that happy ever after. Joss has had a difficult time and I could totally understand his reasoning for the way he acts and I loved how Ellie Darkins put this issue into the book. Joss is a strong character but sometimes we can't be strong all the time and Joss is a perfect example of this. The combination of more serious issues and the flirty interactions between Joss and Eva was balanced perfectly. I was left smiling on a couple of occasions as I wondered if they would be brave enough to jump into a real relationship.
Flirty, sweet and heart warming!
With thanks to Ellie Darkins for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
