The Reviews are in for Desert Breeze's "Not Just Make Believe"
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Andrea Peterchef is the reluctant new nanny to troublemaking nine-year-old Piper, and even though her first day ends with tomato-soup puke, her outlook improves over a sexy conversation with Piper’s guardian, Max. His voice evokes an image of her perfect man, but he’s a workaholic. Andrea can see Piper craves the love and stability of a family, and she’s determined to do what it takes to make that happen.
Maxwell Gildenthall is a stockbroker haunted by the 9/11 deaths of his girlfriend and his cousin-- Piper’s dad. Deadlines and data define his life -- not baby dolls and Disney videos. When his plus-sized au pair badgers him into spending more time with Piper, he realizes he’s been neglecting the child, and the chance to be near his pretty nanny is a bonus. Away from emotion-numbing work, he’s racked by guilt and pain, which threatens the fragile relationship he has with Andrea. It will take more than a spoonful of sugar to make these problems go down smoothly.
Coffee Time Romance - Danielle
"Sandra Sookoo gives us characters that we cannot help but relate to in this backwards and yet very comedic fairytale. While Andrea does not believe full-figure women like herself can get the prince, Max goes out of his way to prove to her how wrong she is. Throw in a girl who is a mix of Pippi Longstocking, Dennis the Menace, and Pollyanna, and you to will fall in love with this funny tale."
