I found an instant bond with Jane. How could I not like this woman that is hanging in there with her hands full and still trudging along. She has a business she is running on her own and dealing with two sisters that if I may be frank are a pain in the rear end. Just when she doesn't quite know what to do with life an interesting prospect is offered. That prospect offers a nice amount of money that just might solve a few problems and a chance to take a break from her sisters.
Brock Wellington is the guy that does exactly what is expected of him. He's always been the one to take care of everyone. He always does exactly what he is suppose to do even if it's not what he wants. He has two brothers that are a handful. They are good boys in their own way but they sure do know how to get themselves into trouble. Then there is his Grandfather that is giving him fits about the auction and getting married.
Brock and Jane meet in a very unique Cinderella style way. Poor Jane finds herself in the middle of a messy situation when Brock comes to her rescue. When they meet up again things are just as messy. Brock can't seem to not stick his foot in his mouth around Jane and the attraction leaves them both reeling a little bit. The sizzle is certainly there and just waiting for a moment alone to spark the explosion between them.
I so enjoyed Brock and Jane's story. There is a nice amount of humor and drama mixed in to make this a great read. I laughed out loud just as much as I flipped pages quickly to see what in the world was going to come between these two next. Just as they would clear one hurdle another problem would pop up. I don't want to tell you too much because you really need to grab this story and read it for yourself.
The characters are well written and the story line is compelling and held my attention throughout the book. I can not wait to see what Ms. Van Dyken has in store for the next book in this series. I know I am already anxiously awaiting the release of The Playboy Bachelor.
