Series: Silver Creek #2.5
Published by Penguin on 2014-06-17
In USA Today bestselling author Maisey Yates’s latest Silver Creek Romance, a rich girl gets the privilege of starting over—and finding true love.
Lucy Ryan got everything she thought she wanted, going from high school queen to Manhattan trophy wife. But none of it was worth staying in a loveless marriage. So now she’s back in Silver Creek—with no money and no place to stay, applying for a job cleaning someone else’s house. And her potential employer is the last person she ever expected to see again.
Mac Denton can’t believe the mean girl who once tormented him in high school is now his housekeeper. He looks forward to making her squirm for a few days before she runs back to her rich husband. But Lucy has changed, and he is surprised to find himself attracted to the beautiful, courageous woman she has become.
Lucy is finally ready to go after what she really wants from life. And what she wants more than anything is Mac. But is Mac ready to truly forget the past and embrace the future?
FTC : I got this book for a fair and honest review from NetGalley.
This is set in the Silver Creek series but doesn’t need to be read in any order. In fact, I recommend you read it first so you can see if you like the authors voice . I do but I knew that walking into this series.
This is a lovely little reverse Cinderella story with a side order of enemies to lovers trope thrown in for good measure. I really enjoyed it.
Lucy was a pain in Mac’s ass in high school, the popular girl who liked to be mean to assert her power. When life kicks her in the ass she has to go for the only job she is remotely qualified for; housekeeper to the lovely Mac. He could be an arse, and oh how he tries, but he just can’t seem to be horrible to someone so down on their luck. There is also the fact that the sexual tension is thicker than even Lucy’s pie crust…
I’m going to go no further with this as, at just around 75 pages, I don’t want to spoil it. I loved the characters, loved the story and I loved the lightness of it all. The dialogue is spunky, the sex is scorching and the pace kept me reading right through to the end. I think it’s a winner.
