Timothy Mayfield is ready to marry for love, but, since his personal finances are thinner than he’d like, he knows he’ll also need to find a wife with wealth. After receiving an unexpected inheritance, Timothy’s circumstances change, and he is free to pursue his “perfect woman”—one with blonde hair, blue eyes, a light laugh, arched eyebrows, elegant fingers, and a dazzling smile, among nearly twenty other characteristics.
Maryann Morrington doesn’t match anything on Timothy’s list—except for wealth. An heiress in her own right, she is tired of men pursuing her only for her money. But at nearly twenty-two years old, and not a particularly stunning beauty, she can’t be as picky as her friend Timothy is.
The two friends end up playing matchmaker for each other. Timothy will find a decent gentleman for Maryann, and Maryann will prove to Timothy that his “perfect woman” doesn’t exist.
Until Miss Shaw comes to London.
Now, with Timothy’s heart captivated by the blonde, blue-eyed beauty, Maryann must decide if she should risk her heart and reveal her true feelings for her friend, or if she should settle for someone else. It’s an up-and-down game of “he loves me, he loves me not” with both hearts and friendship on the line.
I am almost finished with this book but I know I wont have time after I finish to write a review so while I don’t know how it ends I can tell you how I feel so far and pretty much what I think.
I am so in love with proper romance stories. I love the character and relationship build in these books and I always get those little butterflies when they have there proper kiss. I think what I loved the most about this story was how Maryann thought of herself. I think a lot of woman and girls can connect with Maryann and how she saw herself. I thought she was fantastic and her dry humor has me giggling a few times. My heart did hurt for her with how she was treated by Timothy and at times wasn’t sure how he would redeem himself.
I loved how their relationship grew and when they started to realize that they might be meant for each other. I just loved it. 🙂
Overall I think this is such a great read with lots of details and a rich love story. I loved Maryann and Timothy and really didn’t want this story to end. I adore Josi S. Kilpack’s writing and can’t not wait to read more books from her! Highly recommend to everyone this is such a great read for adults and even young adults.
