How did you two meet?
The quintessential question asked to every couple. And the answer is usually some bubbly, lovey dovey tale of being struck in the bum by Cupid’s arrow.
My meet cute (well not so meet cute) is slightly different. I was trolling a wealthy neighborhood in Beverly Hills, searching for someone to take me as their bride, you know, to make my arch nemesis jealous who consequently just fired me.
He was stomping around the block like some sort of gorgeous ogre, mumbling about a business deal gone wrong and attempting to finagle his way out of it.
And that’s when we bumped into each other.
There were no sparks.
Not even a hint of blossoming love.
But next thing I knew, I was scarfing down free chips and guac, listening to this man lay out all of his problems which led to his big ask . . . he wanted me to be his Vivian Ward, you know, from Pretty Woman–minus the frisky behavior.
We’re talking about living in a mansion, intimate double dates, and pretending we were head over heels in love . . . and engaged. Can you imagine?
The absolute audacity.
But people do crazy things when they’re desperate. And I reeked of desperation. So, I struck up a deal.
My one big mistake, though . . . big . . . HUGE? I accidentally fell for the incomparable Huxley Cane.
This book is filled with romance, an alpha male and billionaire, and the woman who changed his life. The story has many mortifying situations that are laugh-out-loud funny and many romantic moments that will leave you swooning. This was a fabulous contemporary romance read with complex characters.
Lottie is off-again friends with her boss Angela. She gets fired from her job at the humble blog where she works without reason, and honestly, that boss is a petty witch.
Huxley is a businessman working with his brothers. He is a playboy, flashy and brilliant sometimes. He has a deal go south and decides to salvage it by putting his foot in his mouth. Now he has a double date planned without a girlfriend and a few other lies. How will he get himself out of this one?
The conversations in the book are hilarious. The level of sadness and snark between Huxley and Lottie is awe-inspiring. I love that they are sassy and both filled with so much attitude. They have so much hate for each other together, but this book does get steamy.
Omg, Lamaze class has to be the best, funniest thing I have ever read; just wow, the author is a true genius to come up with this type of romantic comedy. The author does a fantastic job of mixing mortifying situations with steamy scenes. This couple burns up the pages.
I love that the biggest change in this relationship happen to Huxley, and yeah, he messes up royally. But eventually, he does wow her again and earn his way back. From the beginning of this book to the end, he is a changed man.
I love how this book ends; it was a fantastic romance read.
