I finally finished reading Persuading Annie by Melissa Nathan. I’ve had it sitting on my shelf for around two years if not more. The first Melissa Nathan book I read, The Nanny, I loved and decided to pick up the rest of her books.
Like the others of hers I’ve read, (The Nanny, The Waitress, and The Learning Curve) Persuding Annie did not disappoint. It was a light, funny, and fluffy book, perfect for a summer read.
The alternating points of view kept it interesting, and I found it highly amusing that the main love interests were named Jake and Edward. There was even a Bella in the end.
If you’ve read any of her other books, or are just looking for a bit of fluff, I’d highly recommend Persuading Annie.
