Jordan Wolf’s company runs like a well-oiled machine. At least until his PA, Brady Donovan, comes down with the flu and takes sick leave. Then Jordan discovers what a treasure Brady is and who really keeps his business—and Jordan in particular—moving like clockwork. So when Jordan needs a plus-one, Brady seems the obvious choice to accompany him. After a major shopping trip to get Brady looking the part, however…. Wow.
Brady has a whole new wardrobe, and now his boss is whisking him away for a weekend party. Something is going on, something Brady never expected: Jordan is looking at him like he’s never seen him before, electrifying Brady’s long-hidden desires.
But can the romantic magic last when the weekend is over and it’s back to reality?
Review: My Fair Brady is a super sweet romance by KC Wells that I adore. KC Wells is not a new author to me and although I know that I’ve enjoyed Wells’ work in the past and found their writing style pleasing, I can’t really name any other novels from the top of my head. Therefore, I had no idea what to expect. All I knew was that I love a romance that is the whole trope of boss falls in love for his PA when they are making out that they are romantically involved. There is just something so sappy and romantic of the two leads falling in love that makes me sigh like a teen in love. So heads up, if you like that too, then this will be a totally enjoyable read.
A quick note on the title. I’m by no means a fan of the movie My Fair Lady, but my sister and mum are obsessed so I had kind of expected something more along the lines of that movie to happen here. It’s not like that is an uncommon plot device – a rich guy (on a bet or on a whim) decides to make over and teach someone how to be around the upper echelon of society and they two unwittingly fall in love. To be perfectly honest, Brady already knows how to dress and how to act around the rich and famous, after all, he keeps his boss’s business and life together on a daily basis. He just doesn’t have the money and hasn’t had the need to be around these people until he and Brady start their little charade.
The story takes a lot of time to really get started, but that’s a good thing because we get to know our two MCs, rich, powerful businessman, Jordan Wolf and his very efficient and almost too capable PA, Brady Donovan. Brady has been working as Jordan’s PA for three years, but it is only until recently that Jordan starts to realise just how amazing the man is at running his business life. Jordan doesn’t have much of a personal life which is a shame for a strong man who probably is over due for a good dose of love. Then after a conference trip, Brady gets a severe flu and Jordan is shocked at the extent of how much Brady makes his life better and less stressful at work. Jordan is going through a series of epiphanies here and he is determined to help Brady, which is the start of the guys starting to get to know each other on a personal level.
I found the story really charming. The thing that I most enjoyed about this novel was that not only did the reader get to take their time to see the characters develop and get to know them properly. Additionally, I liked how the romance, while not a slow burn, was not a case of “ooo, I didn’t see you for three years and didn’t realise you had a crush on me, by the way I love you”.
