His Girl Friday by Ellen March
Sally Friday is a mess. Not only is she tortured by self-doubt, but she is also clumsy and has no fashion sense. However, these qualities are exactly what her boss is counting on when she sends her to spy on reclusive millionaire playboy, Roman Daniels. Sally, normally an office clerk for the gossip magazine, Normandy, interviews for the position as Roman’s new secretary.
His jealous PA, Antonia, immediately hires the girl, confident that her disheveled appearance will make her invisible to Roman’s wandering eye. Reliably disaster-prone, Sally makes a memorable first impression, and Roman wonders if he will survive her employment. But there is something about Sally that Roman can’t dismiss. Unlike every other woman, she is unswayed by his masculine good looks, and he keeps catching intriguing glimpses of her feminine potential. When Sally takes a midnight dip in his pool, Roman makes an eye-popping discovery: Sally is hiding a luscious hour-glass figure beneath those baggy clothes. Her hidden assets as well as her refreshing innocence have Roman hooked.
That is, until his growing feelings and fear of commitment get in the way and he decides to back off. With the help of Roman’s best friend Paul, Sally plays to Roman’s jealousy and gives him a taste of his own medicine. But what will Roman do when Sally’s deceit is revealed?
His Girl Friday 4 Star Review
A fairytale for adults, reminiscent of the Ugly Duckling.
Sally Friday, the ugly four-eyed girl with braces is threaten with the loss of her job
unless she spies on mega-rich playboy Roman Daniels and report all the juicy
gossip to her boss, Norma.
Antonia, Romans PA is only too happy to hire the ugly duckling after all, who
would give her a second look? She wants Roman’s eyes on her only.
No family, no friends and just barely making enough to pay her rent.
Sally has no alternative and accepts the position as Roman’s secretary.
Roman’s lifestyle; meet up, make love, and say goodbye. No seconds, no repeats,
and when Sally walks into his life she takes him by surprise.
He has never known anyone as frumpy and accident prone as Sally Friday.
Clumsy to extremes Sally is a danger to herself.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. A light summer read whether you’re lying
on the beach or hanging on the deck. Just enough hot to lighten up even
the cloudiest day! Don’t be shy, it’s not in your face erotic instead a breezy
The banter between Sally and Roman was comical with some laugh aloud moments.
Roman was harsh at times but only because he couldn’t figure out the girl
behind the black rimmed glasses.
Ouch, that hurt! Poor Sally, knowing it and hearing it isn’t helping
Sally has low self-esteem and lacks confidence and it’s Roman’s best friend
Paul who helps to transform Sally into a beautiful swan.
I loved Paul, funny as hell and a good friend to Sally.
Gay as the night is dark his instincts tell him Roman is falling for “His Girl Friday.”
Predictable yes, but I didn’t care I was enjoying it too much.
Romance, humor and no cliffhanger a good read!
