NOTICE: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Taylor Harris--Marietta, Montana's new librarian--is the quiet type who likes her glamour between the book covers. When she's pushed into attending the formal Valentine Ball with Marietta's Most Eligible Bachelor, Troy Sheenan, Taylor can't imagine a worse pairing. What in the world would she have in common with a wealthy playboy like Troy?

Technology tycoon Troy is forced by business concerns to return to his hometown and take the town librarian to the Valentine Ball... what he doesn't expect is that Taylor is even less excited about the prospect than he is! Intrigued by the only woman in town who wouldn't be thrilled to take his arm at the big event, he's determined that she will not just agree to be his date… bur she's going to like it. Can Taylor turn a cold shoulder to Troy's heart-melting charms, or is this about to be Marietta's hottest Valentine's Ball yet?

This was a nice, sweet read. I'll admit that the blurb sounded more fascinating than the actual vibe of the book, but I still enjoyed the book. Taylor is marketed as shy and quiet, but I found her a bit boring to be honest. This may be my personal taste and not a reflection on the author's character. I just like women with a bit more grit and spunk. You can still be nice and shy but have some personality. I felt Taylor was lacking in this department. Troy, on the other hand, was detailed as a wealthy playboy. That caveat was only in Taylor's head as Troy proves time and again that he's nothing more than a nice guy.

There wasn't a lot of conflict in this book, which left a bit to be desired, but it is worth reading. Taylor and Troy make a cute couple. If you like cozy romances, this one is for you.
