Allie Blue's dream of buying the old Smithington mansion and turning it into a bed and breakfast is stomped by a mystery real estate developer with a fancy pen and loaded checkbook. With no bed and breakfast, Allie resorts to one small fib which lands her a flight attendant's job and the task of pampering Upward Airlines' most demanding frequent flyer -- Kiptyn Thomas, III. Something raw and potent snaps between them, but Allie fights the attraction for the guy who thinks he's at the top of the food chain. Kiptyn Thomas is used to getting what he wants, when he wants it. Allie Blue both annoys and intrigues him. Will some well-intentioned fibs, a deep dark secret, and similar personalities draw them together or keep them apart?

Now this is how a story should be!

This is my second book I've read in the Millionaire’s Club series. I absolutely love this new refreshing series and I can’t wait for more. This story read very fast and seemed shorter than its length, but it was gratifying either way.

Allie Blue had a dream to open a bed and breakfast but it just got crushed. Instead she finds herself working as a flight attendant. On her fourth day on the job, she's told she has to serve one of the airlines toughest passengers, playboy billionaire Kiptyn Thomas. Never one to allow herself to be intimidated she rises to the challenge and... well... fails pretty miserably.

Why does this particular flight attendant peak Kiptyn’s interest? She sasses him, infuriates him and just drives him plain crazy. He now finds that he can’t stop thinking about her. Never has a woman ever possessed him the way Allie has. Kiptyn is at the top of his game. Making money comes easy to him, women do not. Though he doesn’t want to take their attraction forward, forward is the only direction he finds himself going. So now the game is on. If he is going to play, he might as well play for keeps.

Their attraction is instantaneous, but with their pasts, they are cautious and make many mistakes. It is a whirlwind romance filled with sensual encounters. Their passion is off the charts but it is still sweet and endearing. I will also say, without giving any clues away, that the closing day/night in the book is the most unique I have ever read. Wow, talk about imaginative!

This is a romance all wrapped up in a wonderful little package. It has a simple plot, but is rich in details. A back story is not necessary to enjoy this book. It didn’t need it, which then allowed the author to focus on the actual plot and not add all the filler needed to get a reader up to date. This story is just perfect. One Small Fib is solidly written and just the right size. I don’t feel like I missed a single thing and I am so satisfied with the ending I do believe I actually sighed!

One Small Fib is like a decadent dessert without all the calories; sinful and tasty with just the right about of sweetness. This book is perfectly proportioned without leaving you overstuffed. Ms. Romes will have me coming back for more.
