Magazine editor Macie Graham always gets her story - and she needs dirt on smokin' hot radio personality Ross Mannon. After he trashes one of her articles, she goes undercover to get revenge on the infuriating Texan. Ross wants a housekeeper and role model for his teenage daughter. When the perfect woman shows up, Ross is relieved. What he didn't expect was an attraction to his gorgeous, red-stiletto-wearing employee. "Operation Cinderella" was a foolproof plan, but Ross proves he's as perfect behind-the-scenes as he is in public - until Macie uncovers a secret that could destroy his reputation. Should she chance losing her job or the fairy-tale ending she didn't even know she wanted?

After a conservative talk show host slams one of her columns on his show which causes advertisers to pull their spots, a liberal, NY editor decides to go undercover as his housekeeper/au pair in an attempt to dig up dirt on him as revenge. Unfortunately, he's not the evil, misogynistic, Bible-thumping, puppy-boiling bastard she assumed him to be. As she realizes this and sees that he is a good man who loves his daughter, says what he means and means what he says, she falls in love with him and his 15-yo daughter. Both the H and h have some issues from their past, and these crop up and are dealt with. When MJ does manage to dig up "dirt," she has to reevaluate her career choices and what is really important to her. I loved the epilogue and the real story behind "the shoes." This was well-written, and the narrator did a great job. I SO hope that the rest of this series will be produced and released on Audible.
**I REALLY liked that the author didn't use her writing to climb on a soap box as, unfortunately, so many do. Despite the media and political puppet masters' best attempts at dividing the US and stirring the pot of intolerance, a story like this helps to remind us that stereotypes are ridiculous and that people are more likely to see in each other the ties that bind us together more than the differences that tear us apart when we take the time to actually try and understand each other and not just spew acidic comments in an attempt to tear each other down and "win" an argument.
This is a very sweet story but the narrator is a little flat. She doesn't have a lot of emotion in her voice. The story was very sweet and makes you think of good people and good things come to those that do good.
