Cheryl Parker has come to accept her reserved nature. Her tight ponytail and glasses are not eye candy for the average man, but that’s fine by her. Therefore, she’s taken aback when Matthew Cooper, a hunk of a man, shamelessly propositions her for a no-strings, intimate relationship. What in the world does he see in her?—and more to the point—what can she possibly offer him when he can practically have any beautiful, experienced woman? But she’s tempted beyond reason, and without much thought, she’s swapping her glasses for a pair of contacts…
This quick read packed a lot into it and held my attention from the start.
Cheryl is a great heroine. I enjoyed watching her blossom into the beautiful and sexy woman that she becomes. Matthew is a wonderful man. He is willing to see what others do not. Matthew sees the beauty that Cheryl hides. Watching Matthew bring out the sexy side of Cheryl was an entertaining read.
I enjoyed reading about the bond that grows between Cheryl and Matthew. They make a great couple playing off of each other very nicely. Even though they begin their relationship as a no-strings affair it looks as if their love may build a stronger bond between them. Not many people can say that they ever find anything close to what Cheryl and Matthew share. No matter what she changes Matthew not only tells Cheryl that she is sexy he shows her that he finds her attractive no matter what, not only endearing him to Cheryl, but to the reader as well.
Celia Jade has the readers enjoying themselves from the very first page. With good characters and a well written storyline this book should be on your to be read list.
