Waking up in a hotel room next to a nearly naked Gwen Christopher is a shocker for Paul Bennet. Hmm, one too many the night before? After all, he's rich, successful and looks more like one of his movie-star clients than their PR rep. Paul can have any woman he wants. Any woman, except Gwen's smokin'-hot sister. Taking plain Jane Gwen out as favor was supposed to be his ticket in. And okay, sure, Gwen's fun and smart and interesting, and absolutely amazing in bed. But she'd never fit in with his parties and paparazzi lifestyle. This is a total mismatch. So why's he so ready to dive back into bed with Gwen the first chance he can?… (mais)

A charming opposites attract romance with some super steamy scenes.

The hero, Paul Bennet, a gorgeous and successful PR executive, initially comes across as very shallow and superficial although he does have an understanding of his own shortcoming. After agreeing to accompany Gwen Christopher, his current flame's less attractive sister, to a family event, Paul finds himself relaxing and enjoying himself more than expected. Gwen brings out the best in him, and he decides that he wants to become a better man.

Gwen, the Plain Jane, heroine is intelligent and witty. She is a lovely person although she can be a bit judgmental at times. Like the hero, she also acknowledges her biases and realizes that there is more to Paul than a pretty face, and it is well-worth the effort of looking beyond external appearances.

My one small nitpick is the lack of an epilogue with Gwen's family being put in their place and realizing that Gwen and Paul have something real that they, with all their superficial beauty, will never have ( )

This was pretty good quick read.

Paul is trying to get into gorgeous flight attendant Autumn's pants. But its pretty clear from the beginning that she's just leading him on because she enjoys the attention. In the hopes of getting laid by her in the future, he agrees to go to a family shin-dig with her less gorgeous sister, Gwen. At the party, Paul is shocked by how much fun he ends up having. Days later, he's still thinking about how relaxing it was to hang out with Gwen. So he tracks her down at her favorite bar and starts out on a quest to befriend her.

Paul is the main narrator of this book. Gwen also has a good chunk of the book from her perspective, but the story starts and ends with Paul's voice. This made for a really interesting story, because it became less about Gwen's hang ups and more about Paul's quest to transform his life. So instead of the heroine being sucked into the rich and powerful hero's life, its about the hero finding happiness in the heroine's life. It was nice to see Paul's transformation with Gwen acting as a kind of guide. Watching them develop a friendship and really getting to know each other before diving into a relationship was also great. This made them a lot more believable as a couple.

My problem with the book however was a pretty big one. The climax of the story was really contrived and the blow-up that happens as a result seemed really insignificant. It made their time apart look childish because of how small the problem that caused the fight was. This made for a really unsatisfying reunion. There was also the smaller problem I had with Gwen's family. They were really cruel towards her for no apparent reason. Making them all seem like a bunch of cartoon villains.

Despite this though, I enjoyed most of the book. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quick read with a bit of a different plot. ( )
