Instead, she's been spending her days battling her co-workers at Wunderthings Lingerie International and her nights trying to avoid her grandmother's possessed cat. And though she gets

Quick read, slightly addicting. Wish i was sitting on a beach reading this.
Cute story with good characters.
Questo romanzo, un autentico chick-lit al 100% è stato davvero una gradevole sorpresa per trascorrere un rilassante pomeriggio. Non so davvero come ringraziare la persona con cui ho fatto lo scambio per avermelo fatto scoprire se non sperando che il mio libro le provochi la medesima mia gioia.
Forse la storia non sarà delle più originali, forse i cliché tipici del genere ci sono tutti in grande quantità, ma è davvero un romanzo delizioso, fresco, interessante e ricco di umorismo e divertimento.

I hated this book. I thought the characters (especially then main) to be dull and weak. I thought the plot to be boring. The ending was predictable, which would have been okay as romance novels often end predictably, but I didn't feel as though all the loose ends were wrapped up for the main character.

I liked the characters and the setting. Easy beach read. It was both humorous and romantic.
Another entry in the realm of sexual romances, this particular specimen is one that had me grinding my teeth from beginning to end. A horny milquetoast of a woman, Darcie Elizabeth Baxter (it’s revealing that her first two names are taken from one of literature’s most contentious couples) is good at her job but lousy at confrontations. She lets another co-worker steal her ideas and allows her on-again, off-again narcissistic adulterous lover to throw his boorishness all over her in bed.

I thought this book would be a light, easy read about a woman’s adventures in Australia. We’re talking about a young, single world traveler working in the lingerie industry - I was picturing something akin to “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert." As a frequent international traveler who has always wanted to go down under myself, I thought I would devour this book in just a few hours, but I was sorrily mistaken. The painfully push-over protagonist idly lets her coworkers steal credit for her work, ca ...more

Darcie Elizabeth Baxter works for a underwear company that is expanding into markets in Australia. She goes there for a 2 week fact finding trip with her boss and finds Dylan Rafferty, Aussie Cowboy. Throw in drama with a boyfriend, a sister who is dying to come to NYC from Cincinatti, a sex addicted grandmother, a back stabbing coworker, a friend going through the marriage trials after her first baby, and an upstairs neighbor that is prone to break ins and you have a pretty fun read... I would ...more

This book is about the life of an ordinary girl who is trying to make a name for herself in her company and at the same time trying to find to find love. It has a good share of steamy situations too. But after reading this book..i thought about a close friend of mine who is in the same situation as 'Darcie' who is the main character. I thought my close friend should quit all the flinging around and get her life straight. This book makes you think bout your career and the man you want to spend th ...more

I read another book from this press that was a "romance" i guess, and it was cute and fun, and a quick read. I really enjoyed it, so I thought I would give this a try...! I was wrong... this one was has no nuance, poor dialogue, and a flat and predictable plotline. I stopped halfway through because I don't care about what happened to the main character.
