Review: Diamond Girl by Diana Palmer

The last person Kenna Dean had imagined teaming up with was her infuriating boss, Regan Cole. But they had a common goal—to break up the relationship between Regan's brother, Denny, and his latest girlfriend. Regan may have had his own reasons for wanting to split up the couple, but Kenna had made hers perfectly clear—she wanted Denny. Or so she'd thought.

But as Kenna and Regan put their scheme into action, things begin to backfire on them. And what had started out as an unlikely alliance was suddenly promising them more than they'd ever anticipated!

My rating:

For the past two years, Kenna Dean has been mooning after her boss without the man taking notice. Except when she's crossing figurative sabers with his older stepbrother. She's never met two brothers more different; Denny is golden and a perfect gentleman, while Regan is dark, beastly, and an utter jackass to her.

But she's willing to forget all his bad qualities when he decides to help her get Denny away from his newest flame. It might take a while, but they'll get it done.. Then the plan backfires and Denny isn't the only one noticing the new and improved Kenna...

Trope-ish and predictable, but nevertheless cute and sweet; even funny with all the initial bickering and spark-denying animosity between Kenna and Regan.

In time, it lost a little of its charm, thanks to the sporadic animosity displayed by Regan and his stubborn inability to see what was in front of him, and admit to it, before it was too late.
The conflict went on a little too long for my taste, making the heroine lose a little of her spine as it progressed and she went all gooey female doormat on the guy (and the reader).

The resolution had also a bit to be desired with Ms Palmer resorting to yet another trope (near-miss experience), but overall, it was a cute and sweet story.
