So, new month, new Daddy from the Dynamic Duo. Marry Me, Daddy was a lot of fun to read, and I loved everything that happened in it.
We have a bazillionaire named Spencer who has a month to find a suitable wife or he loses his grandfather’s company. He really doesn’t need the company, since he is super duper rich on his own, but it’s the whole principle of the matter. It’s his grandfather’s company. So he does what every self-respecting bazillionaire does, and puts up some billboards advertising for a wife. What, you never saw a billboard like that? There’s just one small glitch, because of course there is, and that’s that some copycat decided to put up their own billboard, and Spencer got all his applicants.
Meanwhile, across town, we have Anna, one of our Dirty Dozen, who loves working at the coffee shop, even though she hates coffee. She knows all her regulars, knows what they want to drink, and will stop and chat with them wherever they are. There’s a techy type who comes in a couple of times a week, gets coffee and pound cake, then sits in the corner and works on his computer. Anna doesn’t know much about him, until she sees his face and name on a billboard on her way to book club.
The next day, he comes into the coffee shop, talks to Anna, and all of a sudden, we have proposal #1.
This is a marriage of convenience story, but it almost feels like a comedy of errors a lot of the time. There are a couple of times when it seemed like the most catastrophic thing that could happen does happen. Without those mistakes, it wouldn’t be as funny, though. And really, with some of them, I have to wonder if they are truly mistakes or were they maybe a sign from the gods? Or was Jasper’s luck working in a weird way?
I like Spencer, even if his last name is ridiculous. I loved seeing how he felt when it came to the Dirty Dozen. I would think that the ladies would be overwhelming at the very best of times.
I really liked Anna, and how she all of a sudden came out of her shell. Definitely riskier than a bean burrito. She’s also very caring and rather tricksy when necessary. I like her little sneaky bits.
I love everything that happens in the end. Because all the things happen.
That’s all I have to say on this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!
