Summary

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.

About Erin Brady

Erin Brady is a self-confessed romantic comedy addict who hopes to never find a cure. She spends countless hours re-reading Pride and Prejudice and admits to never getting tired of Darcy’s britches. She loves watching rom-com movies because, when it comes down to it, she can’t get enough of the “girl meets boy and falls in love” stories. Most importantly, she loves to laugh and finds humor in everything from washing dishes to singing karaoke off key!

Ms. Brady writes chick lit novels and enjoys every minute of it. All of her novels follow the lives of women who, mindfully or not, end up pursuing their dreams while making mistakes and learning to laugh (and fall in love) along the way. Erin admits that her inspiration for her characters often comes from her own circle of friends, despite her friends’ protests otherwise.

Currently, Erin Brady has published five novels: And The Winner Is, Shopping Swap, Holiday Gig, One Last Blind Date, Twelve-Step Plan. Another book, Into the Amish, is set to be released end of June 2016.

For the record, Ms. Brady acknowledges her obsession with celebrities, chocolate, Spanxs and designer shoes. She spent the better part of her life single and looking for love. She’s finally happily married to her Prince Charming but it took her a while (and the kissing of plenty a frog) to get there.

Last but not least, she has several subscriptions to tabloid magazines but mostly under different names although she claims she isn’t afraid to admit it.
