Just the Way You Are by Christina Dodd
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 attered 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....
Pretty much a typical contemporary romance novel. Zack starts out as a jerk but Hope's goodness starts to wear off on him. That doesn't stop him from continuing to lie about his identity, which you know is going to catch up with him eventually. There are some ridiculous parts but they just made me laugh. Hope makes some interesting friends working for the answering service. If you are in the mood for a predictable romance with some drama, I enjoyed it.
This is the first in a trilogy. Hope and her siblings were separated after the death of their parents. The second book is about her sister Pepper and the third is about Caitlin.
