Book Review: "The Penthouse Prince" (Virginia Nelson)

Ever looked around at your mundane 9-to-5 office job and thought you might could be doing better? Ever wondered what it would take to spice up your boring world?

Ever been completely caught off-guard when something did happen to shake up your routine?

Then you know exactly how single mother Jeanie Long feels. She works in the call center of a large corporation owned by a mysterious, wealthy young man named Cameron James, who has been infamously called the "penthouse prince" for his exploits and escapades. Their lives are as far apart on the social ladder as they could possibly be.

Until the day that their worlds collide. Jeannie's just looking to report her immediate supervisor for misconduct when she finds herself caught up in one of Cameron's impulsive schemes. He contracts her to pretend to be his fiancee so he can keep the business and get his overbearing father off his back.

What Cameron doesn't know is that there is deception on both sides of the (church) aisle. Jeanie isn't telling him everything she knows about her young daughter or her past. And then, when the scheme turns into reality and demands that Cameron and Jeanie get married, Jeanie realizes she's fallen in love with a man who does not believe, even remotely, in love. Can their differences be reconciled?

The Penthouse Prince is a sexy romance by Virginia Nelson, published by Indulgence, an imprint of Entangled Publishing, and due out on February 9, 2015. Witty dialogue combined with a startling premise and fascinating characters --- Cameron, in particular, is a dizzying combination of wealth and need, impulsiveness and patience, thoughtfulness and thick-headed oblivion --- the work stands to be a contender among others of its kind.

Look for heavy sexual tension and several satisfying encounters between the leads, as well as a suspenseful growing romance between someone who has always longed to be swept off her feet and someone who has never, in his life, thought that love existed.

Even the other characters --- Jeanie's daughter, her neighbor friend Lori, Cameron's father and his close friend Lowe --- come with their own adverse circumstances, desires, and agendas, all of which combine into complex subplots that underscore and heighten the excellence of the main story line.

Like your contemporary romances somewhere between oh-so-subtly sensual and Fifty Shades of Grey-explicit? Look no further than The Penthouse Prince for a satisfying read.
