Book review and GIVEAWAY of Her Heart's Desire by Adriana Ryan
My rating: 3 1/2 of 5 Stars

 You can win an ebook copy of Her Heart's Desire! Scroll down for further details.

Book Blurb:
Millie Fields’s life could be a Greek tragedy. As if frizzy hair and a dead-end job weren’t enough, the heartthrob of her dreams, Graham Lance, doesn’t even know she exists. The only man in her life these days is her best friend Braedon Hill, who seems to have an endless supply of tissues for her equally endless tears. Ironically, Millie is so blinded by her yearning for Graham that she can’t see Braedon’s heart yearns just as keenly for her.

Things become unbearable for Millie when a cruel twist of fate lands her – literally – at Graham’s feet. Utterly humiliated, she flees outside into the pouring rain, the sound of her coworkers’s contemptuous laughter echoing in her ears. As she sits sobbing on a bench, a stranger appears bearing a gift that will transform Millie’s life: A mysterious necklace that will metamorphose her into a ravishing beauty at dusk. Her newfound identity helps Millie finally land the delicious Graham Lance. But as she gets closer to Graham, her relationship with Braedon starts to disintegrate. Will Millie realize all that Braedon has to offer? Or will she choose to live her dream with Graham?

My review: 
This is a bit of a Cinderella story for grown-ups. It is a light bit of fun reading, with a lot of sexy stuff and a predictable but satisfying ending. Millie is a bit lost and she lacks self-confidence and sometimes you just want to shake her and say "Look what you're doing!" But like all good Cinderella type stories things work out for Millie in the end. The sexy stuff is sometimes pretty explicit so definitely not a novel for the under 18 crowd. If you are looking for a short, light and run read this just might be the book for you!

  3. To have my own personal assistant take over my laptop and organize today's chaos, to be 20 lbs lighter and 20 years younger. To close my eyes and wake up in my dream house with my own big bath tub, and my toilet, and doors to close the word out of for me time. Once a week having a mani and pedi and my scalp and body massages as my personal assistant goes over what needs to be done when I wake up in the morning. As I fall asleep all clean and fresh smelling next to my manbeast, I may wake up in my cabin, but a little pressure and stress have been relieved.. oh and A.B. I said it three times fast!

  8. Oh I'd want my own house set back in the woods, kids who listen and do as they're told, a husband that does what he's supposed to, someone to read my email, money enough to pay bills, give the kids a good allowance, and do some retail therapy...I could really go on and on here!

  9. Haha! I love all of these replies! 12 hours of no distractions simply for writing sounds heavenly, though! :D Thanks so much for having HHD here today, A.B.!

  11. If it was only from dawn to dusk, I'd go for something not materialistic or anything that changed my physical looks, because it would then just vanish when dawn arrived. So I'll settle for the ability to be highly creative for a few hours every evening and then get a good night's sleep. My creativity would remain even after dawn's arrival, in the written word or whatever object that I created during that time :)

    epub format
