Worst Quote: I have an encyclopaedic understanding of what a woman wants…and giving it to her. I achieved full fluency in female body language, the clues, and the gestures.


Personal Review:

Spencer is a handsome, hot and filthy rich guy who sleeps around. Charlotte is his ‘best friend’ and partner of their business. Spencer needs to appear ‘steady’ (and I don’t remember why, something to do with his father’s business?). Anyway, he asks Charlotte to be his fake fiancé for a week and that’s how the story began.

As I started reading this book I admired Charlotte and started to hate Spencer and I was so looking forward to the downfall of Spencer. In fact, that was the main motivation behind continuing with the book!

Spencer’s downfall was quite anti-climactic – there was no redemption or work on his part. It was just ‘oh I love her’ and he then gets her. No drama, no hysterics and no grovelling!!

Random Ramblings:

Enjoyed reading a romance from the male POV (even though it was annoying at times!)

Overall Feeling:

Just ok
