Trust in Advertising - Victoria Michaels

Synopsis - Lexi White finds herself at a crossroads. After putting everything on hold to care for her ailing father, it’s finally time for her to start living her life again. An exciting new job holds the promise of a fresh start, until she comes face to face with someone from her past who has always stopped her dead in her tracks, and who evidently still has the power to make her forget her own name. This time around, Lexi’s a grown woman who refuses to back away from her dreams, even if it requires working with her old high school crush. Side by side. Every day. Will he end up being her downfall or exactly what she needs?

Vincent doesn’t even remember Lexi from high school, but he begins to take notice when the fiery young woman is hired as his new assistant. Quickly, Lexi turns his world upside down and becomes an invaluable addition not only to his team, but to his life. Having learned a few hard lessons about trust in the past, Vincent is reluctant to let down his guard, especially when it appears that someone is out to sabotage his family’s advertising agency.  Professionally, they are dynamite together, but when sparks fly between them personally, will Vincent let lies and jealousy ruin everything between them, or will he finally learn not only how to love, but ultimately trust…in advertising?

Review - A light and easy to read book.  It is pure chicklit but has all thee ingredients that makes chicklit work.  A decent storyline, the good, bad and the ugly and the top ingredient - humour.  You feel the chemistry between Vincent and Lexi, the goodness and kindness of his family and her friends.  However, the book would not be without the wicked witch of the west and Jade is certainly that, with sleazy sidekicks to match. 3*
