Maggie Andrew has a problem. She needs to convince Richard, her attorney boyfriend of five years, that he’s finally ready for a commitment. How? By planning an unforgettable night starting with a romantic dinner for two and ending in the bedroom. And to help things along, Maggie has spent half of her salary on sexy black lingerie from Crandall’s Department Store that Richard won’t be able to resist. Except, once home, Maggie realizes she has someone else’s shopping bag and instead of her very expensive lingerie, she’s stuck with a housecoat that wouldn’t turn anyone’s head, least of all Richards. When Maggie goes back to the scene of the swap, she runs into Benjamin Saunders, a tall, dark and handsome stranger, who not only has what she wants but may also turn out to have what she needs. Suddenly what Maggie thinks she has with Richard is called into question and she’s not sure of anything.
I very much enjoyed this book. Chick-lit is one of my favorite genres, and this book doesn’t disappoint. I loved the way the love interests met. It was so quirky and fun. The banter between them is great and I loved the whole bit with “Alice”. (You’ll have to read it to find out.)
The plot is a little predictable, but, the comedic style makes up for it. Erin Brady has a style of writing that is fun and easy-going. I love being able to pick up a book and be hooked right away. Her characters are loveable and funny.
