Really more like 3.25 stars. I’m guessing “Nothing Personal” is one of Jaci Burton’s earlier novels. The story is one I would have expected to read in a series romance like Harlequin or Silhouette instead of one published by Samhain. If you’re looking for erotica, don’t go here. The sex is hot, but the only thing erotic about it is the language used to describe it. Not that I didn’t enjoy this book, it was just not at all what I was expecting.
Ryan needs to marry and procreate to keep the company his grandfather willed him. He was raised in an unfeeling environment and considers this marriage just another business deal. When his latest fiance back out he decides to try with the one woman who hasn’t yet let him down, his assistant.
Faith has loved Ryan since the day she met him while interviewing for her job. There’s nothing she won’t do for him (silly twit). When he asks her to marry him, she quickly realizes this is just another business deal for him, but it will likely leave her heart in tatters.
If you need more on the plot, just pick up any serial romance about the assistant (secretary) who doesn’t think she’s pretty (but turns into a knockout) and how she tames her unfeeling boss who can’t resist her gentle passion.
