Sandy is looking for a “Billionaire/normal girl” book, and she has a ton of detail to help us pinpoint it, so maybe some here knows. For some reason, this one is flashing a neon “I read it!!!” sign in my head. I’m thinking… Emma Scott or maybe Roya Carmen? Or…? GAH!!! I read it right around I discovered my love of their books. Or was it Lilah Pace? Jeannine Colette?

I remember the beautiful pink super-vintage designer dress and it tore my heart out at one point. Am I thinking of the right one?

I’m also remembering trouble with an assistant and a dress-shopping spree for said “party”, so now I’m thinking it’s none of the above. Hmm…

She asks:

“hi all, a while back i read a book, one of those millionaire types,

they meet at a fashion party, he is of course rich she is a working girl, doing online stories about fashion, has a roommate who designs fashion, think takes place in Boston.

Anyway they meet again at a coffee shop, he ask her to party and then sends her gifts, i think a vintage watch from Tiffany’s and then dress to wear to party with him, where she runs into a woman who tells her to stay away or similar.

At one point she goes to visit him at his work but sees a model coming out and thinks he is cheating, then they go off on trip to colorado?

and get married but then come back and she goes to her home he goes to his.

hope this makes sense to someone, drives me crazy that i can’t remember name of book or the characters names, thanks for any help”

My guess? Asking for It by Lilah Pace. Or is it The Ground Rules (Book 1) (The Rule Breakers Series) by Roya Carmen?

Anyone else?

Tsuki: It’s not asking for it.

Theresa: It is In Flight (Up in the Air Book 1) by RK Lilley….the first book in the series… The fashion piece is not fitting with In Flight…but the watch, dress, and model all do…ahhh this is driving me CRAZY…there is another book niggling at my mind but I can not think of the name!

Tessa: It’s on the tip of my tongue too. This Man (This Man Trilogy Book 1) by Jodi Ellen Malpas?

Maria: Pretty sure it’s Steel and Lace: The Complete Series, a four part book, by Adriane Leigh.

Definitely not the This Man Series…not read Steel and Lace…I think I need to know this answer as much as Sandy!!!

Tessa September 8, 2016 at 7:43 PM

Release Me by J. Kenner? I swear, I’ve read this. Somewhere.

Is it Meredith Wild’s Hacker series? It’s been a while since I’ve read the first book to remember all the details but the billionaire/working girl in fashion, Boston, “other woman” thing fits.

It’s Steel and Lace, Marla is right. Boston + Vintage Tiffany watch = Steel and Lace. Bad book, btw.
