Cosmetic Heart by Kathy Bosman

Lisa works for a top South African magazine as the make-up artist, but writes articles on the quiet. When the chief editor, Daniel, asks for her help in posing as his ex-fiancĂ©e to save face with his family, Lisa agrees, hoping to obtain a promotion in return. She doesn’t expect to fall for the handsome editor nor to fit in with his family who love her unconditionally. But Lisa has more secrets, and she doesn’t believe in love and family. After Daniel finds out her secrets, will his forgiveness and determination be enough to cut through all the layers Lisa has put over her heart?

Chelz Review~
Cosmetic Heart is a delightful read that I truly enjoyed.  Lisa is a lady that is stifled in her current position at work.  She, like many of us, has challenges with her family and the natural comparisons and expectations that take place in the family unit.  Dan is a good-looking boss who is extremely intimidating.  

When Dan comes to Lisa, who is his make up artist for the magazine he runs, and asks a huge favor of her, the story takes off and sparks start to fly.  There are so many great parts to this story.  I was happy when Lisa dove into the pool and Dan's nieces and nephews fall instantly in love with her and then ask her to help them with their diving.  I LOVED it when Dan said, "Kiss me, my mom's coming".
The wedding rehearsal was great and I thought Lisa would have realized their true love then--but, Lisa is kind of stubborn.  (like most of us ladies are).  The one thing I would have liked to have known earlier in the story was that this took place in South Africa.  I'm not familiar with that country so I would have realized some of the terms being used were common lingo of that country.  It would also have been more clear as to why they would be swimming on New Year's holiday.  
Make sure you pick up Cosmetic Heart for your next read.

FYI this is a clean read.
