His Girl Friday by Ellen March - Blog Tour, Book Review, Giveaway

Sally Friday is a mess. Not only is she tortured by self-doubt, but she is also clumsy and has no fashion sense. However, these qualities are exactly what her boss is counting on when she sends her to spy on reclusive millionaire playboy, Roman Daniels. Sally, normally an office clerk for the gossip magazine, Normandy, interviews for the position as Roman’s new secretary.

His jealous PA, Antonia, immediately hires the girl, confident that her disheveled appearance will make her invisible to Roman’s wandering eye. Reliably disaster-prone, Sally makes a memorable first impression, and Roman wonders if he will survive her employment. But there is something about Sally that Roman can’t dismiss. Unlike every other woman, she is unswayed by his masculine good looks, and he keeps catching intriguing glimpses of her feminine potential. When Sally takes a midnight dip in his pool, Roman makes an eye-popping discovery: Sally is hiding a luscious hour-glass figure beneath those baggy clothes. Her hidden assets as well as her refreshing innocence have Roman hooked.

That is, until his growing feelings and fear of commitment get in the way and he decides to back off. With the help of Roman’s best friend Paul, Sally plays to Roman’s jealousy and gives him a taste of his own medicine. But what will Roman do when Sally's deceit is revealed?

To say that Sally Friday is a mess is a freaking understatement of the year. She was a disaster and terribly clumsy. But despite these imperfections, you can’t help but like her. There is that innocence and a little sprinkle of feistiness inside of her that makes her easily likable.

It was her qualities that caught the attention of her boss, and sends her sleuthing to a reclusive millionaire playboy, Roman Daniels. She is to be interviewed as his new secretary.  His personal assistant-slash-sometimes-bedmate, Antonia, hires her thinking that she wasn’t a threat – well Antonia was in for the biggest surprise of her life.

Their first meeting was quite a disaster, and had made an impact on Roman, not really because of an incident but the fact that this woman wasn’t charmed by him. He kept on wondering if she’d ever survive working for her knowing she was a magnet to accidents. Good thing she was still reliable with office jobs.

When Sally took a midnight dip on his pool, Roman had his jaw dropped to the floor. Beneath those baggy, unfashionable clothes, not to mention the braces – lies a sexy figure, which had Roman totally drool. Problem is, Roman wasn’t cut out for commitment, and the fear of the word itself had him step back from his secretary. Good thing, there’s Paul – the amazing fairy god mother, who I completely adore. Together, they played on Roman’s jealous streak and gave him a taste of his own medicine. But the problem still lies: what will Roman do when he uncovers Sally’s deceit?

I love watching Roman eating his own words when it came to Sally. He has a temper, a mouth with no breaks at all, and he can really be rude. But then, he can apologize when the situation calls for it (and perhaps a little nudge from Paul). It was his fear that had kept him from being with Sally, and it was the fear of commitment that had almost made him lose her.  I’m really glad he came into his senses before he completely lose this girl. She might be accident-prone, but she was a gem.

Sally’s clumsiness was amusing most of the times, and I wonder if a person like her really exists. There is no day that she didn’t break something or she hasn’t slipped. She should invest well in health insurance. But I like what the moral of the story was all about – never judge the book by its cover. Sally might have been a little different from the rest, but there is more to her than her appearance. She too is a human being with emotions. It’s just lame that other people would belittle her because of it. Nevertheless, I still loved her because she didn’t allow people’s opinion to sink into her, and affect her.

The mix 3rd person POVs had my head whirling a little, but it’s nice to have a glimpse on the thoughts of every character once in a while. This novel was easy on the heart, and had me entertained from the start to finish.

Hello and welcome to my corner of the world :)
I live on top of a mountain in Wales ideal in the summer not so in the winter months or when it rains, which is a lot in Wales!
My three children have left home, however my life is still manic. I live with my husband he sadly won’t leave home but I live in hope (joke). I have one suicidal cat that really does have nine lives.
I have five Alaskan Malamutes. They own me literally as I never go anywhere without taking their hair with me, they insist! My hobbies are showing and working them.
My first love though is writing, it’s a total escape for me my selfish time :) Writing my books takes me from the mundane chores of work into another universe.
Since a child I devoured any written word and enjoy acting out my fantasies in print.
My ambition is to pack in my nine to five job and become a full time writer. Another one of my many dreams. I have stockpiled work of various genres, including my first love erotic romance, followed by psychological thrillers and supernatural so be prepared I am making my mark on the world of literature
