Her brother, Toby, has brought his boss, Patrick, her Prince Charming, to escort her to the party. Although he’s the man of many women’s dreams, Ellie simply can’t go along with it because there’s a secret between Ellie and Patrick—one she can’t even tell her own brother!

a nice romance 4  4

The heroine's brother ask his boss (the hero) if he could go as the heroine's date to a company party where her ex is attending with the boss's daughter. He agrees, which shocks the heroine and makes her a little nervous because her first meeting with the hero was when he caught her sunbathing half naked in the backyard of their (brother and hers) home. At first, she tries to stop his help but awfully rude phone call from her horrible ex to notify her that he's going to announce his engagement to the girlfriend is the push that has the heroine go along with the plan. Her level of nervousness is only heightened when she discovers that the hero is the boss's nephew and that the ex is only using the OW as a stepping stone to his career. So, the hero enlists the heroine's help in order to throw the ex off, prove to the cousin that he's a two-timer, and have her dump him. The reason why is because she's not going to believe them if they tell her. After the party, the hero expresses his interest in a date with the heroine and she agrees with hesitation. They have a wonderful time together and some things happen along the way; it's discovered the heroine's brother is engaged to the hero's younger sister, the ex is starting to crack, and the heroine is falling in love. Yet, she believes the hero is only doing all of those kind things out of love for his sister and cousin. This is the pick that drives a wedge between the two because the heroine's standoffish behavior makes the hero think that she's still in love with the ex, which is completely preposterous but if the heroine can believe the hero is only being with her for the benefit of his family then he can believe she's still in love with the ex. The two of them have a small fight and distance each other a bit. Then on the night of a big party, the heroine goes out to see the hero and ex fighting each other because the hero is trying to keep the ex from getting to the heroine. Apparently, the man finally cracked in front of the cousin and when I mean cracked I mean hassled her about moving their wedding date sooner then letting it slip that he was two timing her with the heroine. So, she dumped the man, he got fired, and he's back for the heroine but the hero is there to stop him. This whole confrontation helps the hero and heroine reveal their feelings to each other and find out that the other feels the same as them. The hero asks the heroine to marry him and she happily accepts. The ex walks off with his tail between his legs and the heroine goes with the black-eyed hero to the party. For me, it was a nice romance and I did like it.
