This book was definitely a page turner. I barely put it down from page one. However, the NZ slang got a little bit much. Being a Kiwi myself it was quite nice to start off with but as the book went a little overboard - mainly because it came across as a bit forced because I don't think NZ-ers talk like that at all. The storyline is typical to what is hot right now in the romance genre - misunderstood billionaire looking for someone to love. There were aspects that were different and interesting - the advertisement, the room - but the relationship was the usual, not very rich woman changes the moody male. There is definitely enough drama to keep you interested and it wasn't far fetched dramatics. My only other critique would be the ending was a bit abrupt given the previous events. I didn't feel the issue was given it's due. Otherwise it's a wonderful book and I enjoyed the NZ dialogue - it was nice to have some Kiwi humour for a change. :)
Thank you to Charlotte Boyett-Compo for the copy in exchange for a honest review.

Charlee is the author of ninety books, the first ten of which are the WindLegend Saga. She was married 43 years to her high school sweetheart, Tom, until his untimely death in April 2009. She is the mother of two grown sons, Pete and Mike, and the proud grandmother of Preston Alexander and Victoria Ashley and the giddy great-grandmother of Amber Dawn.
A native of Sarasota, Florida, Charlee was adopted at birth and grew up in Colquitt and Albany, Georgia. She says of her heritage: "I was born in Florida and raised in Georgia so that makes me an official Sunshine Cracker!" She now lives in the Midwest where she enjoys the changing of the seasons.
Her hobbies are reading, writing, and quietly communing with her beloved husband, Buddha Belly, as he guides her gently from somewhere beyond the here and now. She is owned and operated by seven cats who only allow her to leave the house for catnip, kitty kibble, and clumping kitty litter.
She loves to watch *ANYTHING* in which Victor Webster, Antony Starr, Michael Trucco, Santiago Cabrera, or Chris Vance have starred and patterns her heroes after these fine actors as her tribute to the many hours of enjoyment they have given her.
She collects statues of the Grim Reaper, Anubis, gargoyles, and windchimes. One of her prized possessions is a Grim Reaper windchime sent to her by a fan from England.
Her signature Reaper novels have a huge loyal following and currently she is at work on new erotica novels for Ellora's Cave and New Concepts Publishing.
