Mitch is the interim President of the Texas Cattleman's Club and a recovering football star. His assistant Jenny is a picture of boring efficiency who has had a crush on Mitch since she's been a teenager. But Mitch does not seem to notice that she even exists outside the office. He certainly does not see her as a woman. That is, until her friend Emily talks her into a makeover. Mitch does not know what hit him. All of a sudden he sees just how attractive Jenny is and he can't take his eyes off her. But he honestly feels that Jenny is to sweet an innocent for him. While he feels she deserves better than him, he becomes insanely jealous of any other man who appears attracted. With the help of good friends, he reconciles himself with his reality and makes a determined play for Jenny. As an added bonus, we get the parallel story of Emily and Cole.
The story was a short, quick, interesting read. I generally like my books a littel longer because I think it serves for better character development. I thought that the plot was ok. Some effort was made to delve in the past of the primary actors, but I found he characters a little one dimensional and shallow. Jenny was just a little too sweet to be real. She forgave Mitch time and again even when he says the most horrendous things to her. I liked the story but I can't say I fell In love with the protagonists - and I want to fall in love with my leading actors. My recommendation is that this is a good beach read but not the one to really sink your teeth and get lost in. I actually preferred the firs tbook in this series - One Night, Two Heirs. And now having been hooked, I feel compelled to finish the series!
