When Hope Prescott's parents disappeared, her carefree teenage life vanished forever. She and her three siblings were separated and sent to different foster homes around the country. Now, seven years later, Hope is still searching for them. To support herself, she works for an answering service, and cares for her clients as if they were family.

When wealthy businessman Zachariah Givens hires Hope's service, Hope initially mistakes Zack for his butler. Tired of being coddled and flattered because of his money, Zack is charmed by Hope's candor, not to mention her sexy voice, and keeps up the charade. As their friendship turns into passion, Zack is determined to have her, even if that means the unthinkable - marriage. But when Hope discovers his deception, Zack knows he must solve the mystery that haunts Hope's past in order to convince her that their futures lie together.... Download and start listening now!

    " Just the Way You Are was a fast, fun read that kept you turning the pages to see what would happen next. Zach is a rich bachelor who is used to people liking him as a result of his money. Hope is a poor young woman struggling to make ends meet as she chases her dream of tracking down her family. A phone conversation between Zach and his answering service operator leads to Hope mistaking Zach for his butler. After that, things go really crazy. Dodd does a great job at creating such likeable yet relatable characters who both are looking for love while trying very hard not to look for it. The plot is well setup with the mystery of Hope's past, but that plot is not completed in this book so I am assuming there will be another book with these characters. I had been hoping to find out what really happened, but I don't mind reading another book with these great characters. The secondary characters from Hope's answering service really added to the storyline as well. Overall this was a great read that I would definitely recommend. "

    " This was an easy read, not much action but a love story where two people met in unusual circumstances and fell in love despite the spiteful words and lies. Hope was not the spunky heroine I always liked but she had attitude, a warm heart that endears everybody. Zack was the stiff and heartless corporate bastard whose life was changed by a woman on the other line. It's amazing how some of the ice around him slowly melted because of Hope and there's a little humor here so I enjoyed reading it. Since this is fiction, fast-paced attraction wasn't really realistic in the long run. The story had drama, a little comedy, suspense, and action, there were a lot of touching moments here, the love scenes were passionate but didn't really sizzle, and the writer really introduced the characters well enough, some of them were just one of us normal people and when a good deed was done, it would certainly come back to the doer tenfold. It's a good read I finished it in one sitting. "
