What did I think?

Brilliant. If I could give is 6 stars I would. Rachel delivers the perfect blend of Maid In Manhattan and Cinderella. I DIED. It was absolutely the best of reads and I want MORE. Jane is anything but plain, but in her own eyes? She is a girl who walks against the wall. The girl no one looks at. Until she's wrong. Until he seems her. Brock is a yes man. He feels the need to please everyone and in the end does nothing truly for himself. He even agree to this crazy auction that his grandfather has cooked up. Till he sees Jane. There is something about her that he just can't turn away from. A story about letting go of all the things around you in your life and doing what you truly need to do for yourself. It's a book about facing your demons and coming out on top. It is also a book that gives us NOT ONLY GRANDMA, but a new player in the game, Grandpa. And the twins. I can't forget the twins! I laughed, I swooned, I cheered. This novel was the best! If you are a fan of The Bet series, then you will LOVE it!


Cinderella never had to deal with this crap. Jane isn't entirely sure that Cinderella got such a raw deal. Sure, she had a rough start, but didn't she eventually land a prince and a happily-ever-after? Meanwhile, Jane is busy waiting on her demanding, entitled sisters, running her cleaning business, and . . . yep, not a prince in sight. Until a party and a broken shoe incident leave Jane wondering if princes---or at least, a certain deliciously hunky billionaire---maybe do exist. Except Brock Wellington isn't anyone's dream guy. Hell, a prince would never agree to be auctioned off in marriage to the highest bidder. Or act like an arrogant jerk---even if it was just a façade. Now, as Brock is waiting for the auction chopping block, he figures it's karmic retribution that he's tempted by a sexy, sassy woman he can't have. But while they can't have a fairy-tale ending, maybe they can indulge in a little bit of fantasy . .
