5.0 out of 5 stars IMPLAUSABLE PLOT, BUT UNPUTDOWNABLE 1 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the story of Lilley Smith estranged from her family, she is a filing clerk for Caetani industries, a worldwide clongomerate owned and run by Prince Alessandro Caetani, business man, and playboy. Lilley is having a bad day after catching her boyfriend in bed with her best friend. Lilley is a mousey little thing she pushes her metal filing trolley scurrying around the office corridors trying to be invisible wearing her baggy clothes. Hiding her voluptuous body, that she believes is plump. Lilley is working late she is a lot slower than the other filing clerks due to her dyslexia and likes to catch up on her work. When Lilley hears someone coming and not wanting to be caught working late and crying at the same time she hides in an office. But she has hidden in Prince Alessandros office and he finds her, demanding to know what she is doing there. Lilley finds herself telling him about her boyfriend and and her best friend. Alessandros who is on his way to a charity ball, insists that Lilley will attend as his partner, whisking her to a boutique and beauty salon. Just like Cinderella, once out of her baggy clothes and dressed in a sexy clingy dress Alessandro can hardly control his lust, he has had many women so many he cannot put a number of how many. But none have ever driven him mad with desire like this little mousey virgin. He wants to have one night with her, but there are conditions Lilley must be aware that it will only be one night then he will never see her again. Lilley who is so enamoured with Alessandros beauty, he is tall dark muscular with thighs like tree trunks (that's the authors description) finds she cannot resist and agrees. When she sees him naked her first ever sight of a naked man, we got the usual response "oh he's so big will he fit" oh please! Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Lovers, Lies and A Baby 31 Mar 2012
It is amazing what a little lie can do. We let other people lie to us when we know the truth. The most harm is done when we lie to ourselves.

This isn't me waxing philosophical, but the point of this story. Nobody really seems who they are and everyone is trying very hard to be someone else. Lilley Smith pretends to be a file clerk. She's not very good because she has dyslexia but believes that really she's stupid because her father told her that. She knows she could be more, but it is easier to let the lie stay in place and be what she isn't. Also, her last name isn't Smith. It's Hainsbury.

Alessandro Caetani is a prince, but he isn't because he doesn't want to be one. He's a bit cold and calculated. He hides behind sex because he would rather not have any messy emotional contact with the opposite sex. He uses his position to control those around him and any situation he is in. He also has a deep and abiding hatred for anyone named Hainsbury.

So how do our heroine and hero get around this sizable impasse? They don't tell the truth. Well, up to the moment Lilley finds herself pregnant and then they are rather careful with the truth. I shan't tell you how this all works out as that would spoil things a bit.

I am impressed with how Jennie Lucas handled the topic of dyslexia. It was considerate and thoughtful. She gave the subject the gravitas it deserves. How a person processes the written word or number is very important to our society and we make judgments based on that process. Ms. Lucas shows how we can get it all so very wrong.

The writing in this story is good and occasionally, very strong. The dyslexia sideline is slipped in amongst the usual smoldering glances and bickering banter. It was a good read but I probably won't read it a second time.

3.0 out of 5 stars M&B Standard fare 22 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Standard M&B fare - innocent young woman pretending to be someone she is not, and hiding her family connections catches the eye of the CEO of the company she works for. Standard Cinderella moment where she is dusted down and a couple of hours in the beauty salon together with an eye boggling designer dress turns into a Princess for the night and where Prince Charming (he is indeed a Prince after all) suddenly sees what lies under the baggy clothes. They both have secrets which come back to haunt them - but true love wins in the end. Irritated that I actually paid full price for this one as have read better when price is cheaper or even free - however not the worst I have ever read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Redheads Guilty Reads 8 July 2012
A Night of living dangerously is a romantic, compelling, intriguing, fun loving novel! Along with the novel the cover of the novel is beautifully stunning!

This has been the ever Mills & Boon book which I picked up due to it's front cover as it itself tells a story! The Cover I think really is so beautiful - maybe more books in future will look like this.

When I read what the book was about I knew that this wasn't just a book with a pretty cover, the story sounded amazing so I bought straight away. I couldn't to go home and read it as I knew I wouldn't be disappointed!!

Lilley is the best character I have EVER read about! I immediately felt attached to her and wanted to read more and more. The same goes for Alessandro! He was just so intriguing I wanted to know so much where there characters were going from the very first page!

From the very beginning I had no idea if the author was going to give me what I wanted or if she was going to give me the unexpected! But I really got what I wanted! Through the twists and turns of the characters lives I grew to honestly love them. Lilley especially.

The descriptions of the characters and the scenes around them were so well detailed I could picture it in my head and know exactly what way the characters would look due to Jennie Lucas' details of them.

A Night of Living Dangerously had a lot of conversation! Something which I prefer a lot! I read quicker if two characters are talking and to me it makes the story better!

There's novels which I love reading about and I don't know why and it's if a girl has a one night stand with a playboy and falls pregnant and I loved the way the men act in these books! A Night of Living of Dangerously is that book!
