Sally Friday is a mess. Not only is she tortured by self-doubt, but she is also clumsy and has no fashion sense. However, these qualities are exactly what her boss is counting on when she sends her to spy on reclusive millionaire playboy, Roman Daniels. Sally, normally an office clerk for the gossip magazine, Normandy, interviews for the position as Roman’s new secretary.
His jealous PA, Antonia, immediately hires the girl, confident that her disheveled appearance will make her invisible to Roman’s wandering eye. Reliably disaster-prone, Sally makes a memorable first impression, and Roman wonders if he will survive her employment. But there is something about Sally that Roman can’t dismiss. Unlike every other woman, she is unswayed by his masculine good looks, and he keeps catching intriguing glimpses of her feminine potential. When Sally takes a midnight dip in his pool, Roman makes an eye-popping discovery: Sally is hiding a luscious hour-glass figure beneath those baggy clothes. Her hidden assets as well as her refreshing innocence have Roman hooked.
That is, until his growing feelings and fear of commitment get in the way and he decides to back off. With the help of Roman’s best friend Paul, Sally plays to Roman’s jealousy and gives him a taste of his own medicine. But what will Roman do when Sally’s deceit is revealed?
Do you like a story about an ugly duckling who turns into a beautiful swan? If you’re answer is yes then this book is for you.
His Girl Friday is a delightful read. It’s funny, romantic, dramatic and very very enjoyable. Moving at a great pace you will have it finished in no time, and it will leave you with a smile on your face. This book is well written, displays great emotion has good character development and has a line-up of very likeable characters.
Sally our main protagonist and the story point of view is our ugly duckling. She is very awkward and clumsy and at times you feel embarrassed for her if you’re not laughing at her antics. Her self esteem is low, but you can see the strength in her that develops nicely as the story moves along, thanks to the help of Paul, Roman’s best friend. Roman is our mega rich playboy, and it took me a little while to warm up to him. His temper is right on the surface a lot especially with Sally and his outbursts are at times amusing. As the story moves on his temper fades, thanks to a reality check and this is when I liked him the most. Then we have Paul, Roman’s gay best friend, he’s fantastic from the first moment. He accepts Sally for who she is, and they become good friends.
The romance side of this book is very sweet and includes some very steamy, tastefully written sex scenes. It also has a very happy ending that is a fitting end to this tale.
Overall, a fun read that will leave you with a smile on your face.
Hello and welcome to my corner of the world 🙂
I live on top of a mountain in Wales ideal in the summer not so in the winter months or when it rains, which is a lot in Wales!
My three children have left home, however my life is still manic. I live with my husband he sadly won’t leave home but I live in hope (joke). I have one suicidal cat that really does have nine lives.
I have five Alaskan Malamutes. They own me literally as I never go anywhere without taking their hair with me, they insist! My hobbies are showing and working them.
My first love though is writing, it’s a total escape for me my selfish time 🙂 Writing my books takes me from the mundane chores of work into another universe.
Since a child I devoured any written word and enjoy acting out my fantasies in print.
My ambition is to pack in my nine to five job and become a full time writer. Another one of my many dreams. I have stockpiled work of various genres, including my first love erotic romance, followed by psychological thrillers and supernatural so be prepared I am making my mark on the world of literature
