Synopsis
“Really? Can Mad Dog do that?” She asked. Ellen nodded with a smile “Well, it seems he can, and he is doing it. He’s a very powerful man, Hope.”
However, it didn’t help that everything was such a big mystery. Who exactly was Mad Dog? Did he really live up to his nickname? Even more disturbing was the mysterious red head in his life- who was she?For Hope, being the new temporary face of a famous and expensive fashion Line Company didn’t only require that she come out of her world of naiveté and experience the confidence and certainty that knowledge usually provides, but also exposed her to the passion, vulnerability and overwhelming desire that only Mad Dog could ignite.

 

The Review

Special thanks to the author for a copy of this eBook in exchange for an honest review

The story focuses on Hope, who is very much a plain Jane who likes to read and just graduated from Uni. Her sister enters her in a competition where she wins the prize of being the face of Mad Dog, a very popular fashion line. Hope sees this as an opportunity to experience life on the other side and of course, meet the well-known playboy known as Mad Dog. Despite all the warnings, Hope is drawn to Mad Dog and it’s not long before she has to make certain decisions especially with all the rumors she keeps hearing.

What did I think? Actually this as a quite a fun and quick read. If you like a good Mills and Boon romance type book then you will love this book. The plot was simple, slightly predictable but like I said, I don’t mind that as long as it is a fun ride to the end. So the main character Hope was just slightly annoying, her ignorance initially seemed a bit cute but even after she became the face of Mag Dog, common sense should tell you that you need at least be clued up with what was happening around you. So yes that drove me slightly mental. I quite liked Mad Dog, although it would have awesome if the author gave him a real name…. like Brian or something or even a real last name, it just felt a bit awkward and clunky referring to him as Mad Dog throughout the book.
I like Ellen, she brought some attitude and sassiness to the story that made me smile, what happened with Dwayne in the end…. he seemed to fizzle away. Supporting characters for the book we ok, I liked the red-head lady she brought a certain mysteriousness to the story it had me speculating who she could be throughout the book and I was shocked when I found out so kudos to the author for that surprise.
Kendra….. well I might let you find out about that one on your own. I enjoyed the pace of the book although sometimes I wanted things to move faster, that’s just me as I can be quite impatient when it comes to the fun bits of a book. Plus the author did some fabulous story telling
Overall it was a fun romantic read and would highly recommend it. Plus it is only 99p on Amazon so be sure to pick up a copy here.
