I first “met” Everly Dalton in a series of bad date shorts in Ms Kinglsey’s newsletters and loved her. (By the way, they have all been compiled into a free prequel book, Everly Dalton’s Dating Disasters. I highly recommend reading it. The stories are hilarious!)
Everly’s dating life may be a series of horrendous first dates, but at work she is the best assistant Shepherd Calloway has ever had. He usually scares them off within weeks but Everly has kept his life running for three years. When he finds himself in need of a pretend date, she is his first call. And after getting bad news about his father’s health, they continue the ruse with Everly moving into his home.
Everly and her boss aren’t friends, but she feels protective of him, especially with all the gold-digging women using him for his name and his bank account. She agrees to help him out. She is surprised by the side of Shepherd he keeps hidden, and he likes the color she brings into his life.
I loved this book. Everly and Shepherd are fantastic together, their families are lovely, and Everly’s besties Nora and Hazel are #bffgoals. I am so happy that Everly finally has her happily ever after.
