At first glance, this book looks unpromising.Readers are expected to believe that a powerful business magnate is hypnotised by his nine year old half brother, goes to Las Vegas and meets and marries a Vegas showgirl after a courtship of two days.He goes out to buy doughnuts,but doesn't come back.He then 'snaps' out of the trance, returns to his real life, not remembering anything about the woman he married.
Kelly, the showgirl, is a Cinderella in disguise, not the morally loose gold digger that the term 'Show Girl' usually conjures up. She has one of her erstwhile 'husband's' business cards and follows him to Boston, intending to have it out with him.
Dean is appalled that he married someone so unsuitable, he doesn't remember her but decides to do the right thing and takes her to his posh house to live with him on a two month trial.
Dean has 'daddy issues': a feckless father with a penchant for showgirls and other romantic mesalliances.Dean doesn't see himself having his father's proclivities and sees himself as a decent man in an awkward situation.
I thought this was another 'Pretty Woman' story-done to death.I downloaded it because it was free and I thought this would pass an afternoon.
I was wrong. This is a sweet little 'love' story. You find yourself rooting for Dean and Kelly.
Whilst it will never be classed as a great book, it is readable and fun.I won't say I loved it, but I did like it very much.
