When Arden St. Ives is roped into participating in a phone bank fundraiser for his university at Oxford, England, the last thing he expects is to end up talking to alumni Caspian Hart. Billionaire alumni Caspian Hart. Arden's stumbling attempts at conversation are the antithesis of fundraising and intrigue the aloof Caspian into showing up for the annual dinner to thank the volunteers and donors. Arden thinks he's found a man who might be his Prince Charming, but Caspian's emotional distance puts their relationship on a more commercial footing; he'll support Arden while he decides what to do after graduation as long as Arden is available at his beck and call. Arden agrees, thinking he can break through Caspian's shell, but what will he do if there's nothing inside the shell?
VERDICT Arden is hilarious and peppers his thoughts and speech with pop culture references that go over the business-focused Caspian's head. Caspian is more two-dimensional, in a Fifty Shades of Grey parody sense, and just when he starts fleshing out, the book ends. Fans of Hall's amazing debut, Glitterland, and the breadth of the author's work since will demand this latest, but it is recommended for libraries where Hall is already popular.
