She’s everything he never knew he wanted.
Elinor Dashwood has found the perfect job. There’s only one little catch… her boss.
Edward’s gorgeous, kind, and taken. Well, maybe. There’s something odd about his engagement to the town’s sweetheart, and it seems like he wants Elinor to figure it out.
Nope. Detective Elinor is not on the case. She’ll just admire him from afar like every other sensible person with an unrequited crush.
Edward Ferrars was just fine pretending to be engaged until Elinor moved to town, started working for him, and decided to invade his thoughts. Now his fake fiancée has set her sights on Elinor as enemy number one, and Elinor is the last person who deserves to be called a homewrecker.
He’s ready to call off this out-of-control favor, but if he unleashes the wrath of his fake fiancée, will Elinor be along for the ride?
Rating: Mild+. Mild crude humor; mild kissing; mild sensuality.
Absolutely and completely delightful! I have enjoyed all the books in this series and this one was no exception. The plot was a fantastic modern adaptation of the original and I loved the characters – their personalities were so true to the originals! You can’t help but love Edward and Elinor, get slightly annoyed with Marianne, feel bad for Brandon, and detest Lucy.
The romance was sweet but swoony (the first kiss scene was fabulous!) and there were some great laughs. Highly recommend this book as well as the entire series!
