I loved the interactions between Lori and Cole. Their initial meeting and follow up was memorable and amusing! Cole is persistent as seen with this exchange with Lori: "How about tonight?" "No," I say, because it's the right answer. For me. For my mother. For now. "Then when?" he presses.
One night can certainly make all the difference in the world as Lori and Cole find out. There is a tug of war between the two of them. Both are direct and straight to the point. And in Cole's case, he is quite resourceful, if you catch my drift ;) Cole was my favourite part of this book. He was a great protagonist who was determined and never gave up. Lori was also a great character who was independent and refused to allow any man to help her. Their paths crossing was definitely not a chance meeting. The story certainly looks at the struggle of independence and reliance on another person. Just because you accept a person's help, it doesn't make you weak. I think Lori learns this through her journey. She can still have her independence but accept help from others because they care about her and want to be there for her. The story is engaging and gripping and I absolutely loved it.
Dirty Rich Cinderella was a beautiful insta-love story, full of chemistry from the first moment the characters bump into each other on a busy sidewalk. I haven't read book one from this series but that didn't effect my enjoyment and now I'm definitely going to read it.
Lori's world has fallen apart, she was top of her law class at Stamford when debts from her dead father's and her mother's poor health result in her dropping out of uni and working four jobs just to make do. A chance meeting with Cole on a busy sidewalk and again in a bar that evening set in motion a path totally unexpected by both of them.
