I love Noelle Adams but this just wasn't it.

I read it a while ago and from what I remember it didn't work for me because the guy was too shy and too boring.

And I wasn't a big fan of the girl and I think I paused somewhere in the middle with the intention of finishing it later but I never did.
And I don't feel like doing it now.
Maybe in some distant future.

Hence the 2 stars. Romance, Contemporary ReRead:
This was a fast reread but still just as enjoyable as before. Perfect for a few minutes of free time or when you just need a fix for this particular trope.

Original Review:
Loved this quick little look at the beginning of a new series. Anything to do with marriage/engagement/relationships that are based on convenience and an exchange of cash is totally my thing. Aurora has had a thing for Mike and when the situation arises, she hires him for a trip with hopes that something more will come of it.

This doesn’t have Mike’s point of view, but as all of Ms. Adams’ single point of view books do, this one is more than capable of getting his feelings across to the reader. I love that about this author.

This is very short so there isn’t really any plot here but with just a few scenes we learn quite a bit about these characters. I would love to have more but I’m hoping we’ll see them in the future series. Despite being short in length, this is long on sizzle without consuming the story. I absolutely loved everything about this!

Heroine POV
Triggers Romance, Contemporary This is too short to make anything out of it. Still, I spend a few enjoyable hours reading it. Romance, Contemporary

Aurora might run a successful business with her brother that offers companions for hire, but she's never used the service herself--until she needs an easy date for an important banquet in New York. She fortunately knows just the man for the job. Mike O'Dell. He's cute and smart and funny and good-hearted, and she's been into him for all the years he's worked for her company. Now's the time to make her move. What could go wrong with hiring him as her date for the weekend?
