MORE THAN JUST A PAIR OF PUMPS
GENRE: Contemporary Romance YA
Release Date: May 18th
Gutsy and stubborn 24 year old Trinity Parker is more than thrilled when she lands a job in a top New York fashion store, crunching numbers in the back office. As luck would have it, it’s on her first day there that she ends up heroically foiling a robbery. Or so she thinks.
The man she thought was stealing, Dimitri DuPont, a handsome and rich distinguished gentleman, insists Trinity apologizes to him for her assumptions.
In fact, he demands more.
Dimitri is a man one cannot say no to. So she doesn’t. She succumbs. Soon, her life becomes a tangled web full of lies and deceit and Dimitri DuPont, the one person who’s been there through it all, takes her out of her comfort zone and leads her on a voyage of discovery.
Will he be the anchor that she needs or the catalyst that blows her world apart?
I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Honest is what you will always get from me: good, bad or in-between.
From the beginning, Dimitri DuPont is a mystery. You never know exactly what to think of him. Yes, he comes from a rich family. He dresses nice and has that rich air about him that says he demands respect. When Trinity doesn't "bow" at his feet, he is intrigued; not only because of her beauty, but because she isn't impressed by his money and standing in society.
Trinity, being the accounting/auditing inquisitive-type that she is, has plenty of questions about the man, but she is also intrigued with him as well. As much as she would like to fight the chemistry between the two of them, she finally gives into it. With, so much going on with the business she is paid to audit, and so much going on with Dimitri, she is left with quite a job trying to put all of the pieces of the puzzles together.
Alexandra did a wonderful job keeping my interest in this book. It is quite the page turner. I am a sucker for a good romantic suspense/mystery, so this book was right up my alley. Alexandra also did a wonderful job in her character building. She did it a little at a time as the story progressed at just the right time, giving me information when I needed it to hold my interest, but not too soon to make me bored with the story.
However, being that I am an Accountant, I have to be honest, there were a few little flaws in her research into the world of accounting. For that, I have to mark off a little. She could have used a little more time for research to make the book more accurate in that area. In my opinion, it is ALWAYS better to take more time to get facts accurate, even if it means moving a release date. But I DO love the book other than those little flaws in the book and I do recommend it as a read. If you aren't an Accountant or don't work in accounting, you probably won't even be bothered by it.
Yes, there is a cliffhanger, so I am looking forward to book two in this series to see what happens next! But, I should have known she would do that! That is always a "thing" she is good at doing to us! :) However, they are always worth the wait!
