Veronica Jamieson wants nothing more than to get away from her life as a sheltered princess with parents that want her to settle down with a man totally wrong for her. However, she does the one thing she feels she has to in order to make her feel like she's living her life her own way and that's to go work for her grandad's construction company.

If there's one thing Matt Shaw knows it's that spoiled rich girls are no good for him. But when Veronica shows up wanting to work for his construction company, he finds she's not like his past girlfriend who couldn't handle living back in his hometown and away from the limelight of the big city.

At first, I didn't know what to think of this book because of the mysterious title. Then again, as the saying goes, one should never judge a book by its cover or title in this case and that's especially true for this book. The plot was enthralling from the beginning with Veronica's stubbornness to prove she could do a job she knew she wasn't right for. As for the dialogue, I liked that it revealed how different the lifestyles of each of the main characters was. Matt being a single father to his niece and struggling to keep his business afloat where with Veronica, she was a spoiled rich girl and could have anything she wanted yet didn't want to be seen that way. Instead, she just wanted to live a normal life without the glitz and glamour of her family life. The sex scenes were just right, and illustrated the compelling attraction Veronica and Matt had. What I liked so much about Veronica was her determination to prove to Matt she could be so much more than what he thought her to be -- a spoiled rich girl. While with Matt, I liked his relationship with his niece and that he stepped into the role of her father after his brother died.

Overall, Ms. Daniel has penned an incredible book that shows not all spoiled rich girls have to live a life where money is the most important thing to her and that in fact she will only settle down with a man that will show her the love she deserves.
