A funny and witty tale of love, this book simply makes you smile.

Designing footwear is Jenny Prillaman's life, so getting the plum assignment to create a socialite's wedding shoes is a dream come true. Dealing with the heiress is another story. So is staying away from her dreamy new boss, a man too hot to deny for long, despite Jenny's best intentions of keeping her business away from his pleasure.

Making Bellagio, Inc an international success is executive Marc Waterson's career ambition. But his life's desire is to find the right woman and settle down. Too bad Jenny would rather follow in his corporate footsteps than try on the glass slippers of a company wife.

At least Marc's got one thing going for him - the way to a woman's heart is through a really great pair of shoes!.

Peppermint Patties and Shoes - what is not to love ! 4 Dec. 2005
By cb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
`Feet First' by Leanne Banks is a fantastic contemporary romance. Jenny Prillaman is assistance shoe designer and finds herself designing shoes for reality TV wedding because her boss is in rehab. Marc Waterson is the VP the Bellagio shoe company and is looking for a wife but find the beauty queens fix-up lacking something. Jenny told herself she gets one hot affair in life and she sets her sights on Marc Waterson and sparks fly. This is a fun quick read with a mix of shoes, laughter and great love scenes. I am off to find more from this author. I would also suggest Body Check by Deirdre Martin , `Drive me Crazy' by Kate Angell ,`She's got the look' by Leslie Kelly and `Saving Allegheny Green' by Lori Wilde.

Step into a fun book 1 Sept. 2005
By Patti Fischer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Marc Waterson is the no nonsense vice president of Bellagio Shoes. He is currently overseeing his Cousin Brooke's reality TV wedding, and he wants everything to run smoothly, which will mean lots of publicity for the company.

Jenny Prillaman loves her job as an assistant to Sal, a shoe designer at Bellagio. Sal unfortunately has a passion for alcohol more than sketching right now, so Jenny agrees to step in for the wedding planning. While Jenny wishes Marc would remember her name, she is both thrilled and distressed at the prospect of working with him - he doesn't know her resume is a sham.

FEET FIRST is a wild tale centered around a company, a wedding, and of course - shoes. Jenny is trying to be low key while working with Marc, but her sassy side keeps popping up. I will admit that if I had been Jenny, I would have written off Mr. Square Pants Marc early on. But their attraction keeps bubbling to the surface, until soon it's boiling hot. Of course, like some foods, sometimes it gets too hot, and must be cooled down before it can be enjoyed. As Marc and Jenny experience the ups and downs of their relationship, readers will be taken on an entertaining ride. What an enjoyable way to spend time -- reading FEET FIRST!

Other characters in FEET FIRST give it even more comedic fun. There is the bride-to- be, Brooke, who sometimes forgets she is getting married. And there are Jenny's friends who are always ready to offer Jenny advice in how to entice Marc. FEET FIRST will have you chuckling out loud, so don't read this one in public unless you're prepared to explain that it's about...shoes. Yes, after reading FEET FIRST you may be tempted to go buy a new pair. <g>

Step into a funny tale of love set among the shoe-haves and shoe-less. Leanne Banks reminds us again how good she is at creating amusing characters and plots. If FEET FIRST doesn't convince you to look at footwear in a different light, then maybe it's time to get rid of your tired old shoes. With witty dialogue and entertaining characters, I highly recommend picking up FEET FIRST today.

Feet First 30 Sept. 2005
By AK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
When her boss, the haute shoe designer Sal, is sidelined by a prolonged "illness", Jenny Prillaman's life becomes a Cinderella story. With a reality bridal show needing new Bellagio shoes for their prima dona bride yesterday, Jenny's sketches do more than just fill in as a stop gap measure, they enchant the prickly bride. Moreover, the plain Jane, mousy young lady catches Marc Waterson's eye. He has no idea why she gets under his skin so, even after Jenny undergoes a makeover. Yet, she does, despite the lack of propriety. What begins as simply getting each other out of their mutual systems turns into something stronger, though neither Mac nor Jenny will admit it. The only problem is, their relationship began on a foundation of unwitting lies.

**** Although there are some slightly red moments, overall, "Feet First" is a sweet, old fashioned romance. Most readers will be able to identify with Jenny and cheer her on as her dreams unfold. A delightful secondary romance blossoms alongside the main one as an added attraction. This is, quite simply, a feel good read. ****

Jump Feet First into Fun 30 Aug. 2005
By Marilyn Puett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Jenny Prillaman gets the chance of a lifetime when her boss at Bellagio Shoes lands in rehab and she gets to step in and design the wedding shoes for a celebrity wedding. Unfortunately, Sal had embellished her resume a bit and the company VP thinks she not only has a degree from a design school, but that she has experience as well. When she has a chance to come clean on the deception, she keeps quiet because everyone is going crazy over her designs and she's able to escalate her lust for the VP up a couple notches to a full-blown roll in the hay.

Marc Waterson, Bellagio VP, had decided it was time to end his bachelor days and enlisted his friend's help to find a suitable mate. After a parade of beauty queens with fake hair, fake nails, fake body parts and fake smiles, he is drawn in the the spontaneous Jenny Prillaman who amazes him with her talent and soothes him with her ever-present stash of Peppermint patties.

Their relationship moves quickly but Jenny knows she must come clean about the false information on her resume. However, she's falling head over heels for Marc and jumping feet first into what could be disaster. Can she tell the truth, keep her job AND keep Marc too?

Leanne Banks' FEET FIRST is the first of a three-book series set at Bellagio Shoes and is full of fun and passion. The single title format allows for a larger cast of characters and I especially enjoyed Jenny's gay "girlfriend" Chad whose help and advice helped spur her on to greater things.

FEET FIRST will make a great end-of-summer read when you're looking for something flirty and sassy and bold.
