Engaging characters and some angst set Garbera’s book apart from the crowd. Recovering mean girl Olive Hayes is trying her best to be a better person when Dante Russo hires her for a makeover. Olive doesn’t realize it, but her bad behavior in college caused him significant pain. Readers might take issue with how long Dante keeps the secret of their prior acquaintance, but Garbera never lets her character forget that he shouldn’t keep the secret. Side characters add much to the book without seeming like they only exist to be characters in future books.
VERDICT In this first in a new series, Garbera (Secrets of a Wedding Crasher) balances an enjoyable love story with satisfying character journeys in a book that will delight romance fans.
