Review: Accidentally Yours by Susan Mallery

First line: "Girlfriend, this is not your thing," Lance said as he passed over three napkins, then clucked his tongue.

From the back cover:
-Single mom seeks billionaire's pocketbook to fund dying son's research cure. Will seduce if necessary. Blackmail is not out of the question. Miracles welcome.

-Cynical billionaire seeks working mom with a heart of gold for PR campaign to improve his standing in the community. Must be willing to attend social events. Anyone looking for love need not apply.

It seemed like the perfect match...until the unthinkable happened.

My thoughts: This was a fun, quick story that tugs at your heartstrings. It is a story about love: about a mother's love, about romantic love, about the redemptive power of love. Kerri Sullivan is a woman facing almost insurmountable odds. Her son, Cody, has been diagnosed with an incurable and terminal disease. After finding out that the one researcher who had been working on the disease abandoned his research due to an accident, Kerri was driven to finding funding to persuade him to get back to work. Willing to do just about anything to get the money, she approaches millionaire Nathan King. It just so happens that he, who's own son died from this same disease, was in a position to use Kerri to his own advantage. It seems like the perfect match - they would each benefit from their association. Their journey, of course, takes them on quite a ride. This novel combines witty dialogue, romance and humor to tell a heart-tugging story of survival, with a mother's undying love at the forefront. I was laughing and crying throughout the book and finished it in one sitting.

(I purchased this book.)
