Nothing Personal by Jaci Burton

A sexy, standalone novel from the New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of the Play-by-Play series and Hope series.

Multi-millionaire casino owner Ryan McKay needs a bride in a hurry, and the one he chose has just backed out, which means he could lose his company within hours. He doesn't know the meaning of the word failure, so he's scrambling for Plan B and not happy that the ridiculous terms of his grandfather's will have backed him into a corner.

So when his shy but dedicated executive assistant Faith Lewis tells him she'll do everything in her power to make sure he succeeds, she's shocked to realize Plan B involves her--in other words, he wants to marry her. Like right now.

Faith reluctantly agrees, burying the heavy crush she's had on Ryan for years. But the shy virgin is going to have to live with, sleep with, and reveal many secrets to the enigmatic man who sees this as a logical business deal. Faith's been holding out for love, and that four letter word isn't in Ryan's vocabulary after being raised by a cold, loveless family.

But love very rarely follows the rules of business or logic, and this business deal is about to get very personal.

I found that this story was a lot like the movie The Bachelor. Ryan is a very rich guy that is stunning good looking and must marry and produce an heir to keep control of his family's company. His secretary is always there doing what needs to be done and never complaining. Then the woman he is due to marry walks out on him and he literally have hours to replace her. Then there is Faith. She is not a stunning beauty like his previous choice but she is not awful. She hides behind big baggy cloths and glasses. When he asks her she is taken back but utterly wants to go through with it. Having never had sex she is uncertain of that aspect of the marriage and Ryan agrees to give her 2 months to get comfortable with him before she has to have sex with him. She knows he will keep his word but will she be able to hold out for the two months. Ryan knows his duty to his new wife but once she transformes right in front of his eyes into the ultimate beauty inside and out he has trouble sticking to his plan of "BUSINESS MARRIAGE"

Even though I felt like I was reading the story the bachelor it was really good and I looked forward to each and every page.

I bought "Nothing Personal" on my Nook. Saw it was 369 pages. Loved the story, but was surprised when it ended 100 pages short. Surprised to see an exerpt of another book "Chased" at the end----nothing was said about it on the "Nothing Personal" overview when I bought it. I began reading the exerpt of "Chased" and was extremely dismayed to see that it was SMUT. I immediately deleted both from my library. I feel I should have been alerted that another book was included with my purchase.

Two lonely people, who noticed each other, and never acted upon it, until fate steps in. Ryan needed a wife, on the quick of a dime, and he knew "old reliable," (Faith) would bail his behind out. However, he never knew his "plain Jane," assistant would strike up the match to kindle his desire for her. Faith is unlike any woman Ryan has ever laid in bed with. She's never been with a man before, and is willing to give Ryan one of the most precious and special gifts a woman could bestow upon a man, her virginity. Only if he waits three months to receive it. Since Ryan prefers his women seasoned, the allure of being Faith's first becomes extreme intriguing to him. And intensifies the endless sparks of fire, in the realm of passion he feels for her. With no signs of ever dissipating, even when he does enter her hidden treasure. Ryan thought he knew all he needed to know about getting a woman in bed, lavish jewelry, luxurious trips to exotic places, & etc., well he was DEAD WRONG!! Like any woman, Faith enjoyed the gifts she received from Ryan, however, they were impersonal and didn't quite come from the heart. In the long run, it was she who seduced him, with her naivety and inexperience. Having him to discover his true feelings and experiencing things he never knew existed between a man and woman, LOVE. I can understand why certain people believe this novel is a typical Cinderella Story, yet it's extremely exciting to discover the dynamics between these diverse individuals. Faith isn't poor, she's exceptionally content and financial stable with the life she's lead until marrying Ryan. And Ryan is exceedingly reserve regarding his feelings for anyone, he would absolutely prefer to be impersonal with everyone he comes into contact with. Yet he is tremendously honorable. Faith had been infatuated with Ryan since the day he interviewed her for her job, and he had been fascinated with Faith even before her transformation, yet to catch a glimpse of his beautiful duckling in her wedding dress. It is then, at that precise moment, their adventure begins. I utterly believe I'm going to be obsessed with the other novels written by Ms. Burton. She's going to become one of my favorite new authors. I highly relished the way she wrote these characters, they were relatively easy to understand, the reasons for their solitude. And their trials and tribulations were true to real life, and nothing seemed to be off base. Instead of other writers, who leave the reader wondering, what in God's name were they trying to describe. Not the case with Ms. Burton, well done. This novel DESERVES WELL BEYOND A 10 STAR RATING!!

## Loved, loved this book. Was it original? Um, no. But so what? It was incredibly heartwarming and sweet. There were even some laugh out loud moments. The heroine was adorable and the hero was hot. I don't think Ms. Burton can write a bad book. I kept finding myself smiling while reading this (for the second time no less) and I love that.

Although I've read similar versions of this story line many times, Nothing Personal was well written and kept me very entertained.

The characters were well written and I actually liked them unlike in some of Burton's newer releases. The atoryline has been done over and over again but thats ok as long as their is some depth to it and the characters feel real. I liked this one and will try to find more like this from Burton. I did not enjoy her Wild Riders series that much...too much time with group sex and strip clubs.

I have read other books by Jaci and they were just ok. This book reminded me of earlier works of the great Julie Garwood or Linda Howard. The characters were developed and we liked these people. The plot was believable and I just sighed when this book ended. Keep 'em coming, just like this, Jaci.

This is an easy read. The story is good and the characters are lovable. It's a good 'inbetween' read--I grabbed while I was awaiting a much anticipated new release. Jaci never lets you down!

Fantastic work by an author I gravitate to often. While one of her earlier works, she still brings the heat along with the heart her fans have grown accustomed to. Why knock it down a star? Not enough character development in my opinion on the side of the hero in this book and it's short length. However, beggars can't be choosers with a free read from BN can then? Worth downloading and a good escape.

NUMBER OF HEARTS: 3 3/4 REVIEW:  This was a really good story from Ms. Burton. I loved that she was able to tug at my heartstrings give me a major case of anxiety and then bring such a sweet ending to this story.  Ryan started out as a bit of a dirt bag who was only looking out for number one. But he grew on me so very much. The since with Tiger was the clincher for me. Faith is so shy and sweet at times it was painful. I keep waiting for her to get a backbone and take no prisoners. Really enjoyed this story.  I was honored to get an audio copy from Tantor Audio for review. This was my first book narrated by Elizabeth Hart. I think she did a great job telling the story. Her voice for Faith was spot on. But I had a bit of an issues with the boys voices. They were a bit too high pitched for me. I would have love for Ryan’s voice to sound different. But after a while you got use to it.  Disclaimer:  I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tantor Audio in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

I've read a couple other books by this author and enjoy her easy, lightly funny writing. This book, however, has a terribly tiresome heroine. After about 50 pages of continuous naivete, the endless shyness and whining in her thoughts got really old, really fast. Plehh! Not her best book.

A short and sweet Cinderella story. Faith has always has a thing for her boss, Ryan, so she is willing to help him fulfill the guidelines of his grandfathers will. In the process both Faith and Ryan learn so much about themselves and each other. They discover love, passion and sadness. A good read, worth the time.
