Blog Tour - Love on a Whim Review and Giveaway


About the book: Six months out of law school, Rachel Pearce is completely disillusioned by her job hunt. Despite pounding the pavement with her Ivy League degree in hand, her job prospects are no brighter than the day she graduated. Then in a chance meeting with a former acquaintance, eccentric young millionaire Henry Walker, Rachel finds an unexpected opportunity: Henry is looking for a personal secretary. Swallowing her pride, Rachel sets aside her law firm aspirations for what she envisions as secretarial work—mountains of paperwork and filing. But when she finds her most demanding duty to be daily cookie runs for her new boss, she’s baffled by her unconventional job responsibilities.
As she’s pulled into Henry’s delightful whims, caught in a whirlwind of private jets and fancy dinners, Rachel finds herself inexplicably drawn to this handsome and charismatic man. But reality always has a way of intruding, and logic tells her that this adventure can’t last. When real life inevitably comes calling, Rachel must decide if she’s willing to trade in her dream of success in the courtroom for a chance at love.

My review: First off, don't you just love the cover of this new book by Aubrey Mace??? I think it's just AMAZING! 

I love it when I'm able to read books about characters that I've already fallen in love with! This book is about the same characters in Aubrey Mace's Before the Clock Strikes 30 and it made me want to go back and re-read that book. Aubrey Mace is really talented at writing 3-dimensional characters that you fall in love with and then you really, really want them to get their happily ever after ending. I loved Rachel and the way that she ends up having to swallow her pride and instead of becoming a lawyer like she wants to, become a personal assistant to Henry. But what a great job, she gets to drive his fancy car around and get himself (and her too) amazing cookies at Ruby Snap. And she gets paid for it too! 

I liked Henry too, I love the way he offers Rachel a job, multiple times, and you find out more about the great things he did for her in the end, but he is a true gentleman. The cast of background characters is great too, from Rachel's cat that she shares a hate-hate relationship with to the odd job man that Henry keeps around to take care of things he doesn't have time to take care of.

The plot was cute, it's a romantic, quick, easy to read book that I didn't want to put down. Go check out this great book!
