I usually grab any title that features a librarian so I am ready for our library themed posts for National Library Week. I was going to feature this one, but the librarian part of our heroine’s life was barely there. Evidently, our heroine, Cami, traded in her research librarian cardigan for a more glamorous job in event planning.
I think the author used “librarian” as a metaphor for virginal and shy. (Come to think of it, I don’t know too many librarians that give off the virginal and shy vibe. But I digress.) Anyway, she meets Duke, the corporate suit in charge of security for Pryce Enterprises. Of course Duke and Cami have to work together due to security issues for a big gala that Pryce was hosting.
Duke thinks Cami is overly modest, and kind of boring. However, he can’t deny that there is some attraction going on. Of course Cami transforms herself into a spectacular looking woman (just like Cinderella). Duke confronts his tortured past and the two eventually get together.
I’ve read worse. The Cinderella theme isn’t my favorite, but I do think this would work in a romance collection just fine. I just was hoping for more library and less event planning.
