She's no Sleeping Beauty. And he's definitely no prince . . .
Margot McCleery could have lived her whole life without seeing Bentley Wellington again-her ex-best friend and the poster boy for Hot, Rich Man-Whores everywhere. But Margot's whiskey-augmented grandmother "buys" Bentley at a charity bachelor auction, and now suddenly he's at her door. Impossibly charming. Impossibly sexy. And still a complete and utter jackass.
Bentley's just been coerced by his grandfather to spend the next thirty days charming and romancing the reclusive red-haired beauty who hates him. The woman he abandoned when she needed him the most. Bentley knows just as much about romance as he knows about love-nothing. But the more time he spends with Margot, the more he realizes that "just friends" will never be enough. Now all he has to do is convince her to trust him with her heart . . .
Until her grandmother buys Bentley in an auction in hopes of shocking her shut-in granddaughter into living her life again.
And, there is some manipulation on the side of Bentley's family trying to keep them together for longer than the original weekend.
I liked Margot and Bentley, and I liked them together...but I never really liked the way they got together and I never totally believed in it. I thought it was a little over the top, and I just didn't really connect with it.
The issue I had with the beginning made it tough for me to feel really connected with the characters, which made it tough. I didn't dislike it, but the "meet cute" at the beginning did impact my enjoyment of the rest of the story.
I liked that both of them were a little broken, that there were things they both needed to get past and both accept and learn to live with. I liked the story arc and the character development, and I liked the growth of the characters.
I do recommend this title and I did enjoy it overall.
