Put a Ring on It

Idgie Says:
This is a cute Rom Com type story.  Ridiculously wealthy man sweeps scorned woman off her feet.  But the woman has her own independence and bank account and doesn't get swept off for desire and need but for a change of pace in her life.  Refreshing that he's not "saving her".  

Fairly light-hearted and many amusing moments and quick dialogue.  A fun book to disappear into for a while. 

My only gripe - person in charge of cover didn't bother to really investigate the book - the dog is totally wrong.  (Yes, these things bother me.)  :)


Put a Ring On It

PENGUIN GROUP Berkley, NAL / Signet


Also available in Trade Paperback
The author of New Uses for Old Boyfriends returns to the Delaware seashore town of Black Dog Bay, where one woman learns to put passion before practicality…

Brighton Smith doesn’t do outrageous. As an insurance actuary, it’s her job to assess risk and avoid bad investments. But when her fiancĂ© calls to confess he’s married someone else on a whim (“I looked at her and I just knew!”), she snaps…

That night, at a local bar, Jake Sorensen—hot, rich, and way out of her league—buys Brighton a cocktail. At midnight, she kisses him. And by dawn, they’re exchanging vows at a drive-through chapel.

Brighton knows Jake is a bad bet, but she doesn’t care. After a lifetime of playing it safe, she’s finally having fun. Until the whirlwind romance gives way to painful reality...and Brighton finds out the truth about why a guy like Jake married a girl like her. With her heart on the line and the odds stacked against them, Brighton must decide whether to cut her losses or take a leap of faith that this love affair is one in a million.
