Allie Parker's had enough. Just because she's a dog groomer, her overachieving family of doctors and lawyers treats her like a child. She's convinced that a successful husband is all she needs to change their attitudes. 

So when she and her friends come up with a brilliant new way to meet eligible men, Allie squeezes into her sister's stylish clothes and sneaks into continental breakfast at an upscale hotel to find herself the perfect guy. Before Allie has taken her last bite of syrup-laden waffle, she's met the man of her dreams. But what she doesn't know is that he's a jewel thief who mistakenly thinks she's his contact—and so does everyone else who's after his stash of diamonds. 

Suddenly Allie's world is crazily upended. And as she scrambles to prove her innocence and get back to her old life, she discovers happily ever after sneaks up when you least expect it. 


This book was definitely cute. It's one of those books that you just get sucked into and absorbed in and it's fun. It wasn't emotionally draining, or overly tense. And so that made it a perfect summer read! I enjoyed this book. 

Allie is a dog groomer among doctors and lawyers, so she wants to prove herself, like the synopsis says, by getting a successful husband. I loved the idea of sneaking into expensive hotels continental breakfasts in order to meet guys. It was unique, and something I had never read about before. It made for a great story, and I loved that it was a group of girls, instead of just Allie doing this. It gives more story, and I love when the main character isn't the only one the reader gets to know. 

I enjoyed the little twists and turns the book took in regards to the jewel thief and ending up with a stolen ring. I liked that this wasn't just a fluffy contemporary but had a little extra in regards to plot. The mystery aspect of it was light enough that it didn't take away from the light and funny feel of the book, so that was all balanced well.

I am looking forward to finding out more about the other girls. I like contemporary romance series for this exact reason. You get a main character romance and introduced to side characters who then show up in later books and it's a cycle.

I would recommend this book for anybody looking for a light contemporary read with a side of humor and adventure.
