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?
My Review: 5 stars
I laughed so hard at the beginning of this book at times it was hard to breathe. I felt badly for Sally because of her circumstances, but at the same time admired her for not giving a crap what others thought of her. I also felt badly for Sally because she was a walking disaster - a klutz in the highest order, not something on purpose, just the way she was. Roman is a womanizing jerk who thinks it's quite alright to sleep his way through the female population. When Sally comes to work for him, things go wrong right off the bat. All by design, courtesy of Antonia, Roman's PA, who doesn't think that Sally could ever be a threat to her and that Roman would never want her. Something that Roman reinforces over the next week or so with his words, hurting Sally's feelings repeatedly and quite badly. Then when he actually sees under Sally's wrappings, Roman does what Roman does best. Karma's a bitch though because once Roman takes everything that Sally offers him, he treats her so badly she decides she can be just like Roman. Roman leaves on a trip and while he's gone, Paul, Roman's friend and employee gives Sally a makeover. Wowza!! Sally is smokin' hot under those baggy clothes she's been wearing. Now everyone sees it and that's when things begin to go sideways. Roman can't stop thinking about Sally, and doesn't deal with it very well, especially when Sally goes out with a friend of his. Things become even more muddled after that, and as a result Sally is badly injured, in more than one way. The last few twists I did not see coming at all, and I love that. The end of the book made me very happy for everyone involved. This was such a fun read, and I loved the characters, the supporting characters were just as important as the main ones in this book, in my opinion.
