Stealing the Bachelor

Stealing the Bachelor
Stealing the Heart Book 3
Sonya Weiss
Because of some comments made by a nerdy classmate, Eric, in high school; Ann has grown up feeling like the unattractive sister. So she throws her time and energy in to creating her chocolate business. But her trust in men seems to be highly flawed. Her business manager uses her business to cover a scam and leaves her at the mercy of the FBI when he steals all of her money and implicates her in the fraud. The only person that Ann knows who can help is Eric. She's penniless and desperate enough to go see if he is willing to take her case pro bono. Eric is willing to take her case, but he has a condition. Ann needs to help him become a bad boy so he can land a girl. Ann agrees and the two find themselves spending a lot of time together as they change Eric's wardrobe and work on Ann's case.

This was a sweet, simple story that worked well as a stand-alone. I could tell that Ann's sisters had previous books and their struggles and romances were referenced several times, but it wasn't enough that I felt lost or detracted from the book. There wasn't really a lot of drama or suspense. The issues were resolved quickly or faded away, making these aspects of the story weak. The main focus on the story was the romance between the two characters. I think the story could have had more depth, the characters could have been more fleshed out, and the main drama could have had more details. Overall it was sweet, but not gripping.

I received this book free of charge from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
