Maribel works in a Department store on the jewellery counter, She's worked there for over ten years, getting the job at 16 years old to help support her mother when she was dying of cancer and the job is her life. She lives by herself, is struggling for money and is more than happy to spend her free time staying in and reading books in her flannel pj's than making friends. The buildings billionaire owner and manager Miles Braxton-Worth goes up to her one day and buys the most expensive necklace they have and she can't help feeling a spark between them and when she gets home she gets a delivery and it's the necklace Miles bought with a note saying they will meet for brunch the next day which happens to be Valentines day. Will the pair get together and what does a Billionaire want with a penniless shop worker?
I did like this book and i liked the characters, especially Maribel and there were times when it put a smile on my face or made me laugh a little but there were also serious problems with this book. The story was completely rushed and we didn't really get to know or understand the characters in any depth, especially Miles. He bought her the necklace, said they were meeting for brunch the next day and she never even asked herself or him why me, what does a billionaire want with me? They fell in love after only a day and the main bulk of the story happened over 4 days of their lives. The book had the feel of Pretty Woman (without her being a prostitute) but it was just unconvincing. It was a easy read book and i did like the concept and characters but it just wasn't as good as it could have been.

Enjoyed reading with the exception of typing errors, namely waste instead if waist. Last bit of the book where midriff was down as midrift Some parts of the book was unreadable. Perhaps a fault with download. Also wondered why author thought she needed to repeat parts of the book from Miles or Mirrabelle' s point of view. Literally skipped those parts as was just repetitious.

Miles has watched Maribel from afar for too long, and now feels its time to make Maribel aware of him. He does not like the person he has become, but is he able to change this, with or without Maribel's help? Can Miles convince Maribel they could have a future? As a previous reviewer says, the story is very similar to Pretty Woman. A good read, but could have been better.

The story started alright but if there is one thing I hate it's repetitive stories and this took the cake!! It gave you her side of the story then repeated the whole thing pretty much word for word to give you his side of it! Couldn't finish it if I read his name one more time I was gonna scream!!

I downloaded this book for free and I loved how the author was able to re write the chapters to see the sides of each main role, I enjoyed the book and would state that it is a must read
