    Loved it

    I loved this story!! It's light, it's funny, and it's completely entertaining. There is nothing Marcus Rosemann enjoys more than really getting under his father's skin. Since deciding to follow is own path rather than join the family investment firm, his father has been waiting for him to fall on his face and come crawling back. Oh yeah, and marry a nice, respectable Jewish girl and settle down. Not going to happen!! After a hilarious letter mix up, Marcus finds himself meeting Rose Verma. She's wild, carefree, and the perfect woman to send his father straight over the top when he finds out Marcus is dating her. So what if a little blackmail is needed to get her to go for his plan. While Rose might agree, the blackmail and all, she's not above a little bargaining of her own!! Definitely one I recommend!

    A page turner and heart jerker!

    Jenny Holiday's characters leap from the page. They are funny, quirky, human (in an Amazonian version of Mindy Kaling kind of way). If you want to be swept away, seriously entertained and thoroughly satisfied by a read, here's a pick for you!

    Great read!

    This was the 3rd book I've read from Jenny Holiday in 3 days and I can't wait for the next installment of the 49th floor series. Totally loved it!!!

    Opposites attract in the most delightful way!

    This fun and sexy story, part of the 49th Floor series (all standalone) is the story of Marcus and Rose. Marcus is in a bind - he needs to show his domineering father that's he's not going to take over the family business (or marry a nice Jewish girl) as his own company is doing very well (thank you very much). What better way than to bring a totally non-conservative non-Jewish woman to his family's charity ball, just to stick it to his father once and for all? And when Rose conveniently owes Marcus a big favour, he's not above resorting to blackmail to get her to go along with his plans. But Rose's sparkling personality and fun demeanor endear themselves to Marcus more than he ever expected. His plan is backfiring, because all of a sudden it's his heart that's getting played. When the truth is revealed, will Marcus realize that Rose is the real prize all along? First of all, kudos to the Cover Gods for picking a perfect Marcus for the cover. That man, his expression, is Marcus to a T. He's a no nonsense businessman, determined to prove to his father that he has the business acumen and the intelligence to make something of himself and he's worked hard to create the successful advertising firm that he now has. I loved his character as this staid, serious, somewhat disgruntled man. The meet cute with Rose (which I won't spoil here) was hilarious and I laughed out loud at the unique premise. She's a disaster for him, all bright colours, witty comebacks, big smiles and enthusiasm. She's a vegetarian and East Indian, a woman who fosters abandoned dogs and works for an environmental agency - the complete opposite of his high society wealthy family. In other words, she's the perfect woman to show his father that he can take his plans for him and shove them where the sun doesn't shine. Rose agrees to Marcus's plan reluctantly (though she hasn't much choice) and even though it's obvious that Marcus's father is not a fan of hers, she handles herself with poise and dignity and makes a positive impression on the rest of his family - so positive in fact that Marcus inadvertently finds himself telling them that they're engaged to be married - much to Rose's surprise. A fake girlfriend was all he had intended - now he's got a fake fiance! This causes a bit of a problem for Rose too - she's been trying to find the right guy for her (as she's decided it's time for marriage and a family if she can find 'the one') and Thursdays are her online dating matchup nights (lately a new guy every week, as they just haven't been working out). Being engaged to Marcus is definitely going to put a crimp in those plans. But with a fake fiance comes a sudden perk - the chance to explore the attraction that's simmering between them. After all, a few public displays of affection aren't out of place since they are having a whirlwind courtship. But when those PDA's turn into private moments, the steamy heat between them sizzles and though they may be opposite in character, in bed they are a perfect match. I loved these scenes too, filled with humour and sexy goodness. But of course, when the truth comes out, Marcus screws everything up (well, someone has to), and his determination to keep his emotions out of the game is the opposite of Rose, who has gone all in with her heart, even knowing Marcus's views on love and marriage. I loved seeing his vulnerability as he comes to terms with how he really feels. It was great to see Dax and Jack (heroes from the previous two 49th floor stories, equally as entertaining as this one) give Marcus some timely advice (and berate him for his bonehead moves) - I love the bromance in these types of stories, the camaraderie between male friends (who speak the unvarnished truth) always makes for a good laugh. This story had me highly entertained from the get go and rooting for Marcus and Rose to get their happy ever after which of course they do . 5 stars!

    Brilliant.

    Another great book from Jenny Holiday. Her stories have a way of sucking you into the heart of the book, experiencing a rollercoaster of emotions with the characters as though it were real. I like the diversity of Jenny's stories, It's not everyday you get to read an interesting story about a Mindy Kaling lookalike and a brooding Jewish Ad man with Daddy issues. Cultural diversity always makes a book richer and it also added so extra drama in this story.
