If there was an editor they need to be fired. The author clearly doesn't reread what she's written because there's so many continuity errors. They've known each other for five days, then twelve hours, they're talking while he's driving, then with no words to tell you this he's pulled up at hers and parked. Sure, don't hand the reader everything on a plate, but give them SOMETHING. Even the characters aren't likable and the pacing just feels way too fast. Would never inflict this book on anyone else, what a waste of money.

I usually love romantic novels and the cover and the back cover details showed great promise but as it turned out this was a bit naff.

This is definitely a case of insta-attraction and insta-love. I so wanted to like these characters but their actions were rather strange for people who had never met before. I know this is fiction but honestly these people's action were a stretch by anyone's imagination

I did like that some of the action was told through the inner monologues of the main characters, These were initially, hilarious but quickly became stilted. Hers was an ongoing internal argument with herself as to will she or won't she. In contrast his were a tad condescending and conceited. There was some angst (again internal) which was equally repetitive and his is a bit too full on.

The male lead was a confusing person. One minute he is being apologetic using archaic words like `martinet' and the next he is being rather base especially when one takes into account the female lead's history and the point in the relationship they were currently at. It is as though the author is not sure what she wants her male lead to be.

The book is written to a tried and tested formula so there are no real surprises. And there is some smut to enliven the proceedings along the way. The dialogue at the end was very formal, stilted and urgh!. Indeed the ending itself felt too rushed.

It appears to this reader that this was an attempt at a first draft that needs to be reworked into a tight gorgeous novel that is hinted at here. The work of a good editor would have also corrected the time line errors. It seems that the author could not remember when she got the couple together but it wasn't the same day or even within 16 hours but in fact over four days later the first met.

Full Disclosure: ARC received from Netgalley for an honest review.

Portia Da Costa (<----great name) has been writing smut, sorry, I mean romance since the 1990s and I, as a (ahem) romance enthusiast have quite a few of her paperbacks on my bookshelf so when I saw her new book up for review, I was all sorts of excited.

Much like her last series (the accidental trilogy which was fab for the first two books), this story is about a billionaire and an ordinary woman who catches his eye. The ordinary woman in this book is Jess, a twenty-nine-year-old virgin who has been clinging onto her v-card until she meets her dream man. Ellis is a billionaire businessman who has just bought the insurance company Jess works for.

Ellis is very straight with Jess, telling her that he doesn't do relationships (he has a troubled past,naturally enough), but he thoughtfully offers to pop her cherry and instruct her in sex so that she's all set for when Mr Right does come along.

An offer no one could refuse, surely?

There are no real surprises where the story eventually goes, with plenty of smut along the way.

Normally I'd lap up a story featuring a billionaire and mucho smut, but something was a little off for me in this one, particularly with the dialogue and the inner monologues of the characters; they both speak and think in a really stilted, old fashioned way that frequently comes over as being a bit, well, naff.

Jess lacks in confidence and her dialogue reflected this well, but perhaps too convincingly for me - she kind of killed the mood:

"I'll probably be rubbish in bed and a complete nervous nelly, but I'll try and do my best."

nervous nelly Yup...possibly the least erotic prelude to sex possible.

Very good read of a late twenties virgin meeting her new billionaire boss who just cant seem to stay away from her... He wants nothing serious since losing his wife and kids he feels he doesn't deserve to move on with his life.... All he can promise is 4/5 weeks of his time then he will be moving on! Can this virgin help him move from his past? Really enjoyed this book although it makes every gal think why the hell couldn't my first time be that god dam good cos my first time is one i would quite frankly love to forget but as they say you always remember your first time Yea course we do for the wrong dam reason hahaha but oh what a life we all lead where one would never be as good as the book lol Happy Reading people

At it’s centre is a plot that’s fairly recognizable, virginal girl meets dazzling billionaire businessman, is immediately swept off her feet and into bed…

But this is no 50 shades there’s no contract or secret room, it actually has a nice little love story going on.

Still there are many comparisons to the book of the moment, the damaged billionaire and the girl who falls in love with him and tries to fix him, it’s similarities are even mentioned a couple of times in the book.

In this case however if you can just appreciate the book for what it is you won’t be disappointed, give Jess & Ellis a go and experience their story.
