What do you do when Mr. Right seems oh-so-wrong?
Holly Sinclair is ready to have it all. She’s even found her Mr. Right–a steady, reliable guy who just needs a little convincing. Now all the former wild child has to do is free herself of her very inconvenient attraction to Jack Everett. Not only does the notorious playboy and tabloid king seduce her at her sister’s wedding, he follows her to Paris! Suddenly, Holly is alone with Jack in the most romantic city in the world–and his family is leaping to the wrong conclusions…
The world’s most infamous bachelor has finally met his match. If Jack was the type to settle down, Holly would be the woman of his dreams. There’s just one hitch: Holly actually believes she wants to marry Mr. Oh-So-Boring. Intent on proving that she deserves someone better, Jack finds himself playing the role of the perfect boyfriend…a little too well. If he’s not careful, he might just lose this game–and his heart.
My first Maggie Dallen book. I tried so hard to get into this one.
It was fun, but it just didn’t hit the spot. I couldn’t relate to Holly at all! She’s obsessed with the wrong guy. A guy who doesn’t even like her back. Sure, they dated some time ago, but they were kids. The ‘little convincing’ is almost like telling a rock it’s flexible. It just doesn’t work. The whole story, Holly dragged on and on and on about him. I got tired of hearing about him.
Jack. Bless his heart. I adored him. While he dragged his heels as well, I could more relate to him than anyone. I’m thinking I want to go read the other book with him in it! Jack was a sweetheart, even when he wasn’t trying to be.
The plot seems well thought out. I just could not look past Holly as a character. I felt she brought the whole thing down.
