Once upon a time, a good girl who wanted to be naughty, met a naughty boy who wanted to be good...
Beth Pierce, is the Director of Fundraising for her older brother's new legal non-profit. She spends her weekends fighting off lecherous men at charity galas and her weekdays trying to hide her attraction for a certain sexy young attorney in her office.
Mark Patterson, is the object of Beth's desire. He spends his weekends having casual encounters with women and his weekdays trying not to think about how gorgeous, smart, and sexy Beth is. Because not only is Beth his colleague, she's the younger sister of one of his closest friends.
When Mark is assigned to escort Beth to those weekend galas, they both quickly realize that things could get very interesting. Will Beth be as naughty as she would like to be? Can Mark be as good as he wants to be? Even if they give in to their desire for each other, how can they risk romance when so much is at stake?
My Beth and Mark:
Beth Pierce is a in charge of fund raising for brother non-profit legal aid. She’s had a crush on her brother’s best friend for years now and whenever he seems to be around she turns into a complete klutz every unlike her usual confident and independent woman she is.
Mark Patterson is a lawyer at the non-profit and is also best friend of Beth’s friend. Mark finally notices Beth in Adam and Lilly’s book butnow has no idea what to do. He doesn’t want to ruin his relationship with his best friend but he really wants Beth.
I though Mark and Beth were cute together. Some of their scenes are quite funny and their romance is sweet. The book doesn’t have much conflict or angst since they both wanted to date each other and were pretty much blunt about what they wanted from the relationship from the start.
Quibbles: I know many people are not happy that it isn’t a full novel length book but really I think this book is better this way because they have known each other ever for a long time and now wanted to be together. Their story was pretty much straight forward and didn’t need for it to be 300 pages long but I would liked the book to be more focused on Mark and Beth especially since it was smaller and we waited a long time for the book.
Overall, this is a great addition to the series and I really enjoyed it. Happy Reading!
I’m always hesitant when it comes to novellas because it’s rare that an author succeeds in delivering a full story in so few pages, so thanks for putting some of my worries to rest where this title is concerned. It’s a little weird that Silber didn’t focus on Mark and Beth more, but other than that I like!

The thing with novella’s is it has to have everything that a full length should in aprrox 100 pages so it’s quite difficult to get everything right.
There was is other secondary character introduced that need help so from about 60% they were trying to help her.
