Meet Clara Andrews… Your new best friend!
With a love of cocktails and wine, a fantastic job in the fashion industry and the world’s greatest best friends, Clara Andrews thought she had it all.
That is until a chance meeting introduces her to Oliver, a devastatingly handsome American designer. Trying to keep the focus on her work, Clara finds her heart stolen by lavish restaurants and luxury hotels.
As things get flirty, Clara reminds herself that inter-office relationships are against the rules, so when a sudden recollection of a work’s night out leads her to a gorgeous barman, she decides to see where it goes.
Clara soon finds out that dating two men isn’t as easy as it seems…
Will she be able to play the field without getting played herself?
I got this book not just from freebooksy, but I also follow the author on Twitter. I finally decided to give this book a try, because there are several books in the series. Well…it was simply…okay.
The title truly says it all. It is more introduction about who Clara is and what she does and what she wants in life. I’m all for stories about women ‘playing the field’ because I’m tired of reading about men doing that, why can’t women do that as well?
The story was kind of a quick read, but I didn’t care for the pacing of the story.
It seemed so quick.
Boom she meets this guy and falls in ‘lust’ with him.
Boom she works with him.
Boom they go out on a date – and then she goes out with someone else. And she seems to like him…
Boom they sleep together and he tells her he wants a real relationship and not a fling.
And then boom the I love you’s come.
That’s great for a guy to say that, but it was just so fast. I don’t care for fast pace relationships. You don’t get much out of it except the fairy tale ending high. That high will eventually end. I know, I know, it’s a series, but that’s how it felt in the first book.
When something bad (I don’t mean catastrophic bad) happens, the guy flees! I’m thinking, okay, you want a real relationship, and yet you act like a child not getting the toy he wanted and leaves. I got news for you, that’s not how a relationship works. I won’t give away much of the ending. I think I already gave away too much as it is.
The book was cute in a way, but too fast paced for my liking.
