Book Description: Six months out of law school, Rachel Pearce is completely disillusioned by her job hunt. Despite pounding the pavement with her Ivy League degree in hand, her job prospects are no brighter than the day she graduated. Then in a chance meeting with a former acquaintance, eccentric young millionaire Henry Walker, Rachel finds an unexpected opportunity: Henry is looking for a personal secretary. Swallowing her pride, Rachel sets aside her law firm aspirations for what she envisions as secretarial work—mountains of paperwork and filing. But when she finds her most demanding duty to be daily cookie runs for her new boss, she’s baffled by her unconventional job responsibilities.
As she’s pulled into Henry’s delightful whims, caught in a whirlwind of private jets and fancy dinners, Rachel finds herself inexplicably drawn to this handsome and charismatic man. But reality always has a way of intruding, and logic tells her that this adventure can’t last. When real life inevitably comes calling, Rachel must decide if she’s willing to trade in her dream of success in the courtroom for a chance at love.
My thoughts: This book was the perfect read for me right now. I love the combination of romance and comedy. There are comedic situations that put a grin on my face and kept me anticipating what could possible happen (or go wrong) next.
The cover is perfect for the book. The character re-connect in a sweets shop. I like to see the cover and think of the really good stuff that is non-fattening inside of the book. It's a very sweet romance.
Rachel thinks she has her life figured out. She graduated from law school and thinks she should be on track to a productive career practicing law. Her dreams are not coming true and she is struggling to survive when she runs into Henry. He is a wealthy ex-boyfriend of her best friend. His offer to employ her as his secretary was not well received, but became a necessity as things became more desperate for Rachel.
Aubrey Mace writes with a wonderful and clear voice. I could picture many of the scenes in my head. Her presentation of the banter between Henry and Rachel was excellent. They are wonderful characters and I am very grateful that I got to read their story!
This book is clean and fun! There is mild religious references that don't have a big impact on the story. This book can be enjoyed by all.
