AN ALL-NEW STANDALONE FROM NEW YORK TIMESBESTSELLING AUTHOR JULIA KENT
I never thought my perp walk would lead to true love.
Then again, I never thought I’d be arrested on RICO charges and hauled away in zip ties on camera for the world to see, minutes after closing the most amazing deal of my career.
And all of it in front of my biggest rival, billionaire wunderkind Ian McRory.
I am broke.
I am disgraced.
I am alone.
I am a sucker.
But the worst part? I have to go back to my hometown and live in my bedroom filled with relics from my childhood.
Lisa Frank never made me so mad before.
Just when I needed a rescue, I got one — in the form of help from my biggest rival.
He can’t bring back my money.
He certainly can’t bring back my reputation or my pride.
But there’s one thing he can bring back to me.
A sense of hope.
Maybe even love.
Ian sees something in me no one else does, and he’s relentless about making me see it, too. As we grow closer, I’m starting to see that while my entire life used to be a lie, the truth is staring me in the present — and it’s a truth I like very, very much, hot eyes and gorgeous smile and all.
But I have to be careful.
I can’t be too —
The final book in the USA Today bestselling Do-Over Series (Fluffy, Perky, Feisty), as Mallory’s sister, Hastings “Hasty” Monahan gets her turn at a happily ever after that starts off with an arrest.
So this book first of all made me really hungry for cheese. Manchego cheese, a type I hadn’t tried, to be specific. As a huge fan of cheese, I mean my whole family makes fun of me for it, I’m a little surprised I hadn’t tried it before. But I bought it the other day and plan to try it now!
Okay, more about the actual book and story. First of all, I wasn’t sure I’d be able to like Hasty, or Hastings as she prefers to be called. I mean she just wasn’t very nice in her sister Mallory or any of the other books in this series. But, Hasty definitely grows through the story, and I got to see just why she acted the way she did. Part of it was just her, but part of it had to do with her husband. And Ian, wow, you gotta love Ian! And when there was the twist at the end, the reason he had told her it wasn’t her, it was him, I actually don’t know why I didn’t see that coming! But I didn’t! So it was perfect.
As with the others in the series the side characters are so much what makes the story complete and so much extra! First Raul, you have to love Raul. And then there was the reference back to the urine perimeter from Feisty, which you should really read, I can’t explain it and give it the justice it deserves. Not to mention the cow birthing scene in this one.
A perfect book to wrap-up this series, and a wonderful series that introduced me to a new favorite author that I’m now catching up on all her books I’d missed!
