4 Rules are Made to Be Broken Stars
* * * *
It's Live!!!
Sometimes you just feel like reading a book you know will be fun, snappy and make you feel good in the end. It doesn't matter if the premise has had different variations... you have read the blurb and something unique calls out to you and you say- Yeah, I'm up for this. That was exactly what happened to me when Six Month Rule by A.J.Pine came across my sight...I am glad I did.

This happens to be part of a series, however, I never felt like I was missing anything... the only thing that happened after reading the entire book was interest to see what the other installment held.

There are a couple of unique parts to this love story... the guy is British with a capital B. He is extremely charming and also has that true difference from our American Chaps. These differences are there from the start and add to the story big time. The other part of this which adds a twist is the ploy of reading one's Horoscope and the stars in the galaxy. These hooks are part of our gal's make up and each chapter has her checking on what her Gemini guide tells her.

All of these elements are then used with the backdrop of driven career people.

He has been working non stop in publicity representing top fashion icons and new up and comers... and it has taken almost 6 years to realize he has been missing out on his adorable daughter's life. All the traveling, all the success cannot make up for all he has missed and his ex has made it clear he needs to make changes before it is too late. This last contract with this new designer for her show in Chicago will be for six months and then he will be a full time dad to his little angel, finally.

She has been doing events and shows, focused on becoming partner as soon as possible. In order to reach her goal, she has set up a six month rule for "relationships" if you can call them that. After seeing much and having her partners becoming demanding and not understanding her need to put her career first...she has decided...

Six Months...All the thrills, sex, fun and did I say sex....
Yes, all of that told in the beginning...with no broken hearts or trauma ... just fun, fun, fun till the six months are done...Clean breaks, no moping, no mess....and it also leaves her able to reach her business partner goal without any obstacles.

These two meet; first in a chance situation which leaves an impression on both...and then in the conference room with her boss to learn her partnership will depend on how well she does this new event with HIM. They have about six months to arrange everything and make it a huge success...
Both are about as opposite in their communication styles...and both are fronting their personalities... protecting their inner minds from each other...yet both also are hugely drawn to each other too....

So what to do, hmmmmm....

Why not do that six month thing...she thinks...after all he is leaving and this way they both can enjoy what is happening with them...Yeah... that is the way to go with this...nice and clean...

Except we all know that isn't what happens... and it is the reading all about it that makes this enjoyable. Both of these characters have their own hang ups but also have a sweetness and charm. I happened to love all the fun made at the Brit's expense...His dialogue seemed authentic and the references to Chicago landmarks felt so, as well. We even saw both of them stumble and then right themselves in this relationship. I am always a sucker for a man owning up to his shortcomings.

If you are in the mood for something not too heavy and love the idea of a British man asking "May I" , in that way to make your skin pebble and heart beat... then I would say this is your fun read.
