Rating: 4 Cups
Afton Lanford is the movie reviewer for her city’s paper. She is beautiful, witty and full of life, and determined not to repeat her mother’s mistakes.
Cooper Stewart Carrington is a rich investment banker from a wealthy and well-known family. He loves mountain climbing and has climbed six of the seven highest mountains in the world. He is tired of women who only want him for his money.
Afton is looking forward to her wedding to coworker, Jason. She is actually shopping for a wedding gown when she sees him in a lip lock with her maid of honor. In her rush to catch up to the pair, she runs into Cooper with her scooter. The two concoct a scheme to save face for Afton and to keep gold diggers away from Cooper. One problem—Cooper is not the bank teller Afton thinks he is. Afton hates liars, and unless Cooper comes clean, their developing romance is in jeopardy.
This is an entertaining story full of humor and romance. Afton and Cooper are engaging and likable characters, and their antics gave me quite a few chuckles. Cooper’s efforts to keep Afton from finding out who he really is were pretty funny at times, and her revenge when she found out was priceless. Her aversion to men of wealth was a little over the top, but his aversion to women in search of wealthy husbands was a little more understandable. I had a hard time understanding some of the decisions they made, but overall the story is a fun read.
