Missed the mark for me

Dirty Bet - Melinda Minx

I'm usually a big fan of this author's work, but this one missed the mark for me. It's an interesting enough read and it did keep me turning pages to see how it would all play out, but some things about the story bothered me. I understand the need for Eric's complete 180, but it was almost like he was two different people. He was extremely arrogant in the beginning and had the attitude that any woman would be made better if she was on his arm. For me, he just became way too much of a good guy, way too fast. Ruth wasn't just a plain Jane, her description was so over the top that is was almost laughable. That may have been the point as there were some amusing parts in the story, but it was a little much for me. I did like the ending and the way everything was wrapped up. While this isn't my favorite book from Minx, it is worth the read and I will read other works by her.
