Langley Vaughn is in desperate need of a date.
But not just any date.
She’s looking for a date to the wedding from hell. It isn’t every day you’re forced to be in the bridal party while your first love marries your arch nemesis… otherwise known as the world’s worst stepsister. The entire situation is a nightmare, and Langley is sick and tired of taking orders and forcing a fake smile. She’s done being the bad guy when she was the one who was wronged.
She needs to find a date who’s not afraid of her family’s money and someone who is willing to shake things up. She needs someone outside of her normal social circle, someone ready to go to war with the well-to-do. She needs someone who won’t back down. Someone willing to play the complicated game of tug of war she’s been engaged in with her family for years.
Never in a million years did she think she was going to stumble across her very own heroic heartthrob when she set her crazy plan in motion.
Not only does Iker show up for her time and time again, he also forced her to finally fight for herself.
He says he’s only there for the money… but his actions speak so much louder than his words.
Iker Alvarez would do anything and everything to get his hands on some quick cash.
Not just any cash, but enough to make sure his younger brother gets into the college of his dreams.
Thank goodness for a desperate, pretty little rich girl with too much money and her heart set on an outrageous scheme. Being in the right place at the right time might just be the answer to both of their prayers — and this smart soldier has never let a golden opportunity slide by.
Iker doesn’t mind coming to Langley’s rescue and being her plus-one… as long as the price is right.
Only, he didn’t plan on liking the blonde socialite as much as he does. He is totally unprepared for the pull he feels toward her, coupled with his growing desire to protect her from the vultures and villains living under the same roof.
He wants to be the guy who keeps her safe and gives her the courage to fight back that she obviously needs… But someone else, someone far more powerful and influential than Langley’s wealthy family, has dibs on Iker’s time and on his future. He knows he isn’t the guy Langley can count on in the long run, but damn if he doesn’t want to do everything in his power to be that man.
Langley’s half sister, Camille, marries, and she also marries the Langley ex-boyfriend she stole from her right under her nose. Langley went to look for a man who would accompany her to the wedding but who would make sparks.
I really liked this first volume very much. Langley is adorable, sweet and kind but she must accept to live with the hatred that her mother-in-law and her half sister have felt for her for too long.
The marriage was the last straw, so she will look for a boyfriend to accompany her but will not have the look or attitude of a rich little boy. I loved their meeting, Langley’s naivety and Iker’s protective side even though he doesn’t know her yet.
Iker will help her and protect her from her mother-in-law or her half-sister, he will also make her realize that her father should protect her too.
This first volume is really very interesting and even if I expected the way it end, I look forward to reading the second volume.
Quick Word: A very romantic first volume.
La demi sœur de Langley, Camille se marie, qui plus est avec l’ex de Langley qu’elle lui a piqué sous son nez. Langley va donc chercher un homme qui l’accompagnera au mariage mais qui fera des étincelles.
J’ai vraiment beaucoup aimé ce premier tome. Langley est adorable, elle est douce et gentille mais elle doit accepter de vivre avec la haine que sa belle mère et sa demi sœur éprouvent pour elle de puis trop longtemps.
Le mariage a été la goutte d’eau, elle va donc se chercher un petit ami qui l’accompagnera mais n’aura pas le look, ni l’attitude du petit garçon riche. J’ai adoré leur rencontre, la naïveté de Langley et le côté protecteur d’Iker même s’il ne la connait pas encore.
Iker va l’aider et la protéger que ce soit de sa belle mère ou de sa demi sœur, il va aussi lui faire prendre conscience que son père devrait la protéger aussi.
Ce premier tome est vraiment très intéressant et même si je m’attendais à la fin, j’ai hâte de lire le second tome.
En bref : Un premier tome romantique à souhait.
