⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ LOVED this

Man about Town

Well that was pretty great. This is my first time reading anything by this author, and I’ve got to say that I loved it. With a light, fun but still heartfelt vibe, this book just flies by. The banter and chemistry between our couple is apparent from the beginning, and the hints of a Cinderella story make the plot unique. Marcus is actually the fairy godmother in our Cinderella’s story, but that doesn’t mean he can’t steal the girl for himself.

The story follows Alex, a woman who has just started working for a prestigious and serious financial firm. She knows nothing about fashion but wants to look like she fits in, so she hires a date to accompany her to a work party. Alex gets more than she bargained for with Marcus, a disgraced trust fund kid who knows everything about the world Alex is just entering. Who better to help her learn how to fit in than a guy who grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth? But as Marcus and Alex spend more time together, the differences between them don’t seem so obvious, and the chemistry that sparks between them is impossible to ignore.

I loved the writing style – the story moves quickly, the characters are so easy to like, and the banter made the relationship have plenty of depth. It’s a slow burn romance that may take a while to heat up, but the sexual tension was there from early on, making the inevitable combustion that much sweeter. I also loved the twist on the rich playboy trope – Marcus may have started out with an easy life, but he’s choosing to take the more difficult path because that’s not who he wants to be anymore. Once I got to know more about him (the fashion knowledge at the beginning definitely threw me off), I absolutely loved Marcus. While this is part of a series, it’s easily read as a standalone. I didn’t have any trouble following along, though I might have to go back and read the rest of the series now because this one was so great. If you’re looking for a light and playful slow burn romance with plenty of depth, this is definitely a good option. I received a free copy via Booksprout (then purchased it for my collection) and am voluntarily leaving a review.
