Powerful Persuasion by Ayako Shibata


Art is incredibly pretty but the story is dumb. I'm with the other GR reviewer who was hating on the hero. This is a lot like The Proposal with Sandra Bullock only stupid and without the charm. Hero is a sleaze who hires the heroine for a legit-sounding position only to take her to his family and announce that she's going to be his fake fiance to appease his VERY TRADITIONAL Italian grandmother (and does he tell her before he meets the family?? hahaha no).

There's also a jealous, cheating OW and a car accident, so it feels very soap opera-y. I'm rounding up for the strangeness of it all and because I liked the art, but there isn't much to say about this one.

1.5 to 2 out of 5 stars
