A tough one to read if you’re not very fond of cheating. This one, though, had special circumstances. The thing that carries this book, however, is the character of Neesy. OMG! Funny as hell! She’s clumsy and speaks her mind. But, she’s also caring and driven. Always thinking of others before herself. And, when her boss, Adrian, says that he has a special job for her, how can she say “no”. It’s how she interprets it that has the reading laughing out-loud. She does take it in stride, though, when she realizes what her real job will be and tackles it in that Neesy way with tenderness, care, and heart. Adrian, however, he was hard to like. He was brash, controlling, and in a way deceptive. But Neesy accepts him nevertheless. Most of his actions, though, came from guilt. Guilt for his involvement in an accident from his past and now guilt for his growing feelings towards Neesy. But, when the truth is revealed concerning a character’s past indiscretions, everything changes.
This was a quick read that had me laughing one moment, crying the next, and then throwing my hands up in frustration. I’m telling you Neesy was one fabulous character! She really carried the book with her humor and confidence. I had no idea what I was getting into when I picked up this book because the blurb was pretty vague. But, it’s best to go in reading it blind. You will be totally surprised!
