Resisting Mr. Tall Dark and Texan

Resisting Mr. Tall, Dark & Texan (Harlequin Special Edition)

About the Book:
Hot off the press! Word around town is Ethan Traub— of the Texas Traubs—is bringing the family oil business to Thunder Canyon, along with his sassy personal assistant, Lizzie Landry. Settling down isn't part of this wealthy bachelor's game plan. So why are we hearing rumors that he's starting to see Lizzie as something more than his devoted employee?

Lizzie may be secretly in love with her heart-meltingly handsome boss, but she knows better than anyone that he's not the marrying kind. Besides, she's got her own dreams—to hightail it back to Texas to open her own bakery. But my sources tell me the oil baron won't let her go so easily. Stay tuned, faithful readers, to find out if this is one deal Ethan will seal with a kiss!

My Comments:
You don't pick up a book that looks like this if you want something with an original plot line, so you won't be surprised to learn that this doesn't deviate too far from the old reliable plot of best friends becoming more.  I did find it odd that Lizzie was both is personal assistant at the office and his live-in housekeeper at home, but it did give them plenty of time to interact in the book.  I liked her, I liked him, I liked the way they were both trying to strike out on their own, but still hold onto the familiar.  I liked the happy ending.  Grade:  B.

I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley.  I was not obligated to provide a positive review.
