This is a real summer read book I really enjoyed this series, honestly sometimes I want to read books for pure enjoyment and not get a lesson or another out of them, I mean come on I need to leave room to learn on my own and this book definitely delivered on the fun pleasure read part It s a page turner, quirky characters and who doesn t love getting thrown into the rich and fabulous life I love the 3 main characters, how all three were different but they still became close friends and experienced new boundaries I loved the romance in here especially spoiler between Mara and Ryan, I love maid and boss stories.
