Material Girl - Julia London
"Meet the glamorous Lear family whose dying patriarch has vowed to teach his spoiled, pampered daughters some lessons. Rich, beautiful, sexy-Robin Lear is all that. Until her father tells her he's dying and demotes her from a cushy job in the family business. In an instant her world has unraveled-she spends a night in jail, works as a lackey to her ex-boyfriend, and is way too distracted by a sexy contractor..."

Such a great read! No simple storyline here! After reading the reviews I was prepared to dislike Robin immensely. Spoiled, rich girl meets poor hunky guy. It's so much more than that. Jake and Robin has real angst and tension and tons of character growth on both parts. The secondary characters are fun filled :) I love Grandpa Elmer and Zany! The real issue of abandonment and loss are well dealt with.

I highly recommend this contemporary debut and will definitely be reading Rebecca and Rachel's story.
