Review: The Dimitrakos Proposition by Lynne Graham

A man she can't say "no" to

Sharp-tongued, independent firestorm Tabby Glover will do anything to get Greek billionaire Acheron Dimitrakos to support her adoption claim over his cousin's small child. The last thing she expects is his outrageous marriage proposal!

She has no choice but to say yes, even if the arrogant tycoon can't stop looking down his nose at her for one minute! Tabby can see that there is more to this proposition and this devastatingly handsome man than meets the eye. But as the thin veil between truth and lies is lifted, will this marriage become more than in name only?

Paperback, 192 pages
Published December 17th 2013 by Harlequin 
Genre: Romance

Kristine's Thoughts:

* I won a copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.*

This book for me was typical and followed the usual formula of this genre. It was highly predictable, in fact I'm pretty sure I've read almost the same story line before, but entertaining none the less. It is a case of two people who can barely stand each other being thrown together and fighting a mutual attraction. Both Tabby and Acheron are likeable but a little annoying at times in their views and actions.

There isn't much else I can say about the book without giving the entire story away so I will discuss the one thing that I did have an issue with. The cover is horrible for this book! Tabby is suppose to be a tiny waif like woman with a tiny frame and chest. The model on the cover is nowhere even close to that description. I try not to judge a book by its cover but many people do and I think Harlequin really needs to put more effort into making appealing covers.
