Blog Tour Book Review: His Sweetest Fortune

by Stella Bagwell

Harlequin Special Edition; January 17, 2017
$5.75 U.S.; 
224 Pages

Sophie Fortune Robinson is on a mission. The word around the office watercooler is that the boss's youngest daughter is intent on landing Mr. Right by Valentine's Day—and that she has her eyes, and heart, set on a certain hunk in Marketing.

But when she enlists her longtime pal and coworker Mason Montgomery to teach her how to get a man to notice her, little does she know she's already captured his attention!

Now Mason's in a real bind! He has just a few short weeks to fight his way out of the "friend zone." On his agenda: convincing sweet Sophie that he is the real man of her dreams! Will Fortune smile on true love's venture?

Review: Her Sweetest Fortune is a sweet romance. I'm not sure that this book was suited for the Special Edition Line. I know it was part of a bigger series, but Sophie, oh Sophie she was so not a grown up.

The plot of this story is more suited to a teen novel or a new adult novel. I love the friends to lovers theme, especially as Mason wasn't a typical hero. There was sensitivity that is usually lacking. But again, its our girl, Sophie who is the huge problem here. How could any grown woman act like she did? Her whole crush on Thom and dating him, was just ludicrous. Why would you want to keep going with someone you have nothing in common with, except that you have some delusion that he's Mr. Right.

This isn't the reasoning of an intelligent woman. Especially when she thinks about Mason, when she's on dates with Thom. (And who wouldn't, Thom is a flipping jerk)

The book is enjoyable if you read it putting  the focus that Sophie is very young or at least not very mature.

Rating: 3 flowers
