Six months out of law school, Rachel Pearce is completely disillusioned by her job hunt. Despite pounding the pavement with her Ivy League degree in hand, her job prospects are no brighter than the day she graduated. Then in a chance meeting with a former acquaintance, eccentric young millionaire Henry Walker, Rachel finds an unexpected opportunity: Henry is looking for a personal secretary. Swallowing her pride, Rachel sets aside her law firm aspirations for what she envisions as secretarial work—mountains of paperwork and filing. But when she finds her most demanding duty to be daily cookie runs for her new boss, she’s baffled by her unconventional job responsibilities.
As she’s pulled into Henry’s delightful whims, caught in a whirlwind of private jets and fancy dinners, Rachel finds herself inexplicably drawn to this handsome and charismatic man. But reality always has a way of intruding, and logic tells her that this adventure can’t last. When real life inevitably comes calling, Rachel must decide if she’s willing to trade in her dream of success in the courtroom for a chance at love.
Love on a Whim is a companion novel. I didn’t realize this when I started it. There was obviously some back story that was missing. It worked as a stand alone but when I finished I went back and read Before the Clock Strikes Thirty to read Shannon and Nathan’s story. So if you have the option I recommend you read Before the Clock Strikes Thirty then read this title.
I really enjoy Aubrey’s writing style. She makes me laugh. Rachel and Henry have lots of chemistry and this book was lots of fun to read. This secured Aubrey on my short list of must read authors. Definitely going to go find and read her other titles.
While I guess this could be considered “LDS fiction” I don’t think there is anything in this that is specifically LDS and it is more implied that the characters are LDS simply because they don’t drink or smoke. Nothing about it is preachy or religious. It is just a clean romance.
