His Girl Friday by Ellen March
Sally Friday is a mess. Not only is she tortured by self-doubt, but she is also clumsy and has no fashion sense. However, these qualities are exactly what her boss is counting on when she sends her to spy on reclusive millionaire playboy, Roman Daniels. Sally, normally an office clerk for the gossip magazine, Normandy, interviews for the position as Roman’s new secretary.
His jealous PA, Antonia, immediately hires the girl, confident that her disheveled appearance will make her invisible to Roman’s wandering eye. Reliably disaster-prone, Sally makes a memorable first impression, and Roman wonders if he will survive her employment. But there is something about Sally that Roman can’t dismiss. Unlike every other woman, she is unswayed by his masculine good looks, and he keeps catching intriguing glimpses of her feminine potential. When Sally takes a midnight dip in his pool, Roman makes an eye-popping discovery: Sally is hiding a luscious hour-glass figure beneath those baggy clothes. Her hidden assets as well as her refreshing innocence have Roman hooked.
That is, until his growing feelings and fear of commitment get in the way and he decides to back off. With the help of Roman’s best friend Paul, Sally plays to Roman’s jealousy and gives him a taste of his own medicine. But what will Roman do when Sally's deceit is revealed?
Foxy Rating = 3.5 stars
This is a quirky but sexy read about a lonely girl who is often overlooked but finally gets some good karma in her life and lands a billionaire!
Sally Friday is an orphan, she has no family, she’s never had any support with little or no friends, and as such she feels the world is against her so tries to hide herself away in her dowdy clothes and her big glasses. Her boss gives her a task she cannot refuse and is sent to apply to be the secretary for secretive but sexy Roman Daniels. It’s a given that she will get the job as his PA, Antonia, will not be hiring any beauties for Roman to bed, she wants that role for herself!
The story then evolves after Sally is working at Roman’s country mansion and her yearning for love takes hold when she sets eyes on Roman. Roman on the other hand is supremely annoyed with his PA for hiring such an ugly secretary. But then Roman starts to have feelings for this strange but alluring young woman. Or maybe it’s just the assets she tries to hide under her baggy clothes.
I liked that this was based in the UK (although I was trying to fathom which ‘moors’ the house was near to being 2 hours out of London) and I liked the terminology I can relate to. Roman was a bit of a pain to get to like but after a while he did grow on me and I ended up finding his obnoxious ways endearing for some strange reason. Sally was a sweetheart but her clumsiness was a little over played and got annoying after a bit.
Overall this was a light and fun read and gave the reader a good story of the mild and meek finally changing their luck and getting all the good that they deserve. It was a little of a Cinderella story, with an 'ugly PA' sister and a gay god brother! A real love story overcoming adversity. Yes at the last page you are cheering on for Sally finding her true self and her true love.

work into another universe.
Since a child I devoured any written word and enjoy acting out my fantasies in print.
