Everything seemed to be going right for Cora.  She had a wonderful fiance, a great best friend and a fulfilling life.  One day, a tragic event causes that life to crumble around her.  She turns to her best friend in her time of need.  They embark on a search for answers, delving deeper into a web of magic and destruction.  The closer they get to the truth, the more questions they have.  To Cora, magic was the stuff of fairy tales.  Immersed into a very different kind of world, the real storm was just beginning to take hold.

“It felt like I was nowhere yet everywhere all at once.  I was invisible and completely panicked.  The millions of pieces I had dissolved to drift on the breeze and away from my nightmares.  It was kind of like floating weightless in a pool, perfectly relaxing.  The warm breeze from the window embraced and soothed me.  I let the air current carry me as far as it could through the summer city.”

“Defeated, I closed my eyes and took a few calming breaths trying to relax myself.  I pictured the dandelion in the park today and took a deep breath as to blow the fluffy seeds in all directions.  I pretended I was light and fluffy and started to feel a tingling in my body.  I began to feel as light as the dandelion seeds and soon I felt like mist floating.  This time, I tried to keep myself in the room, swirling in a humid block.”

Review of Can't Buy Me Love by Maggie Marr

A creative office romance



Everyone knows that Cole Jackson is lethal--in his charm and in his reputation as ruthless media mogul and one of the world's great CEOs. A fact his former executive assistant Meg Parson has learned firsthand. He's the one who banished her from his executive suite with no explanation.

Determined to secure her long awaited promotion within Comnet, Meg Parson is back and can deliver the one deal Cole Jackson has always wanted and could never get. This deal is Meg's ticket to the top. Now Meg must juggle this high-stakes deal with her unfathomable attraction to her former boss--an attraction Meg has denied for three years. An attraction which raises painful memories from her past. An attraction that Meg's boss Cole seems to share. If Meg can't pull off this multi-media merger, not only is her career at stake but also her heart.

 My review:

This romance novel was cute and romantic.  I even cried when sad parts happened.  She spun an original and emotional story.  I loved how she made the audience able to relate to this normally out of league couple.

I like the premise of this story.  It had great potential that fell through just slightly.  As good as the story was, it lacked depth and length.  There was a lot more development that could have occurred with greater satisfaction.

The romance in this book was sizzling, even scorching at some points.  I am surprised there wasn't smoke from all that fire.  I found myself rooting for the couple in places in the story I didn't expect to.

Can't Buy Me Love was a cute office romance story.  I wish this had been a full length novel so we could get to know the story better.  I also wished for an ending that was a little less rushed.

Overall, the story was great and worth a read to anyone who loves romance books.  This book is just a taste of what is to come for our lovely Maggie Marr, so stay tuned.
