Satisfaction Guaranteed

Elizabeth Sewell is a workaholic accountant. She has her whole life mapped out ahead of her in this thought out life plan she made for herself some time ago. Her work, unfortunately, is her life and even if Mr. Right were to walk in front of her, between her lack of experience with men and her lack of time to commit to a relationship, she wouldn't recognize it. So, she again puts a plan into action of what to do to attract the ideal mate and just how she's going to go about reaching this goal.

This is where Jack Harley comes into her life. She has decided that hiring a male escort will solve all of her male experience problems. He could teach her the ropes and what she should and should not look for in a man. Problem is, Jack isn't exactly who she thinks he is and he doesn't actually tell her the truth either. He feels that she is just too beautiful and too intelligent to tell her the truth.

Does Jack ever tell Elizabeth the truth about who he is? Or does she find out on her own? Despite everything, do they end up together in the end?

Unfortunately, although I liked the story idea and found the characters interesting I just couldn't get past the slow paced movement of the plot. For me, it distracted me from fully enjoying the story as I had hoped and for giving it a higher rating.
