ABOUT THE BOOK
Within days of wishing she could change her life, Fran Cooper is acting assistant to a celebrity, on a yacht in the Mediterranean, and en route to a tiny Italian island and the glittering Crystal Ball, along with the world’s rich and famous.
When she – quite literally – bumps into a handsome American called Evan, a man able to keep his cool in the face of chaos, the magic really begins.
Evan makes her a promise: no last names, no life stories, just one unforgettable night. Yet Evan belongs at the Crystal Ball and Fran is a gatecrasher. They may be soulmates, but their homes are an ocean apart, and their lives a world apart. They’ll never meet again – unless, on a night like this, everything can change forever…
I don’t think that I have ever laughed so much while reading a book until now. Fran Cooper doesn’t know her own worth and unfortunately, neither does her fiancé of the last twelve years. Stew has Fran’s life planned out. They have already left her beloved London for life in Sheffield after he inherited his gran’s house. There are rules, no more jobs that take them away from home, something as a PA used to happen for Fran. It has left Fran jobless in the lead up to Christmas until her agent offers her the opportunity of just a week’s work, which will involve travelling. It does have its clauses of non-disclosure of whom the person is that Fran would be working for. When Stew won’t give her the time to tell him about this opportunity and dismisses her, Fran has to make a choice.
Oh wow! I loved every single page in this book. I was whisked away with Fran with eyes wide open, into a world of glamour and fairy tale dreams that do come true. Fran, of course, got the job, which was to care for a top-billed solo artist, whose hit recordings lived at the top of the charts. Fran had to accompany the artist to Italy and an exclusive one night only charity performance that would only be attended by the elite, followed by an out of this world auction. No, literally a space trip was one of the items to bid on!
I continually laughed from the time Fran set foot on the Yacht that was more like a luxury hotel, to the end of the book. But even the rich have baggage, and her charge was no exception. But oh, what a merry dance they played. It was the closest I have ever come to consider Tena lady, as I laughed so much. I think that I had an overflow because my eyes couldn’t cope with any more.
Fran is like the modern-day Cinderella, that will go to the ball, even if she has to gate crash the event. She has nothing to lose now, as her days as a P A seem like it won’t ever be an option again. What a night it is. This story has everything you could ever wish for in a fairy tale. So bring your popcorn, settle down and enjoy a night of blissful entertainment. I could happily read this book in the lead up to Christmas every year, even knowing how it all ends up. It is what dreams are made of!
I wish to thank the publisher and Net Galley for an e-copy of this book, which I have reviewed honestly.
