Third in the “sweet and sumptuous”* romance series from the author of Coming Apart at the Seams...
Thirty-year-old Bebe Banerjee is desperate to get rid of two things: her fiancé and her virginity. Escaping her arranged marriage might be impossible, but she refuses to give her firsts to an entitled jerk who lives on another continent. Instead, she devises a plan that guarantees another man will get her momentous firsts. But she never imagined that man would be Cal O’Brien, the gorgeous heir to the Riley O’Brien & Co. denim empire…
Although Cal has always been fascinated by Bebe’s brilliant mind and beautiful eyes, he’s never pursued her. She can’t stand the sight of him, and every time they’re in the same room, they end up trading insults. Yet when he finds out about Bebe’s bold plan, he makes his move, unaware of her upcoming nuptials. He promises to make her firsts unforgettable, but he doesn’t know how hard it will be to forget her when their arrangement ends.
Love the writing
What I enjoyed most about this book, was the intellectual banter and hilarity...wry humor and whip smart, witty banter. The author does a wonderful job of drawing you in with the differences in the dialogue that was unique to each character. There is such a sweet innocence to Bebe, a juxtaposition to her over the top intelligence. Never having found love within her family, she is finding it for the first time through Cal...who is introducing her to all her "firsts".
There are many different aspects of this story to enjoy, while you have the story of Cal and Bebe, also interwoven are the backstories of the other O'Briens. Ms Sutton has created a story timeline like I've never read before. Jumping ahead in time, but then filling you in shortly thereafter...this moved the story along at a quick pace and kept it interesting.
Though this is the first book I've read by this author, I plan on catching up with the first two books in the series...I truly enjoyed her unique style of writing and just how much depth and dimension she gives her characters.
