I received an ARC copy of this book for a fair and unbiased review. That being said my favorite genres are romantic thrillers. However this book caught my attention almost immediately. It is a sweet, sexy, and very funny romance. In many ways it pokes fun at the reality television shows that are so popular these days. The characters are well developed and quite believable. Although the beginning is a little slow once you get to the meat of the book it progresses nicely. Dominic, the sexy male lead, is exactly that, a sexy male. Amusingly, he is not looking for a girlfriend and only takes part in the show as a favor to a friend. The “ladies” who hope to be his chosen dream girl go from hilarious to the kind of girl you want to kick in the bottom. I was rooting for Chloe, the female protagonist, from her first appearance. She is very funny and smart and her sister is possibly my favorite character. Chloe is your average girl competing with model thin snooty girls. If you like witty, character driven, romances then you’ll love this book. It takes a little while to get into it but once you do you’ll enjoy it.

I do love when it can win you over, even if it’s not the sort of thing you usually read.
I feel the same way! I just bought her other book, “Return”. I guess I’m hooked!
