This is a love story about a small town girl and an older, sophisticated and sexy millionaire who steals her heart. Alternating between the point of view of Tessa and Barclay, the book is well written and well-paced.
Tessa and Barclay both have an intense attraction to each other despite their age difference. Tessa and Barclay have fallen for each other; everything seems perfect until their individual dreams get in the way. Tessa has landed her dream man and dream job but can she keep both of them?
Tessa was a great character. I loved that she was sassy, smart, and confident to strike out on her own in NYC with no guarantees. Though I found her naivety worrisome. Not to mention the fact that she always relied on her best friend to tell her the ways of the world. I loved Barclay and the fact that underneath his hard exterior lies a sweet, kind, and caring man.
Overall, the story was fantastic. I enjoyed the interaction between the characters. It is a fun and quick read that will have you swooning for your own Barclay Hammond.
