Publisher's Summary

In the first book of The Fancy Lives of the Lear Sisters trilogy, a spoiled socialite discovers the best things in life are worth working for.
For socialite Robin Lear, being handcuffed in the back of a police car for a bogus crime is the cherry on top of the worst week ever. First, her father announces devastating news. Then, in a fit of tough love, he demotes Robin from her cushy job in the family business and reassigns her to work for an insufferable manager. Now, for the first time in her life, Robin will have to earn her place in the world - and the sexy new contractor renovating her house may be just the man to show her how.
One look at beautiful Robin Lear is all Jake Manning needs to know that she’s just another trust-fund baby who’s never done an honest day’s work. Getting involved with a woman like her would be a disaster - yet staying away is proving to be damn near impossible. But who knows better than Jake that the best things in life are worth the effort….

Enjoyed this surprisingly

I purchased this book as I could not find anything else in chic lit I had not read that appealed. I was very surprised the storyline was good. I enjoyed the character of Robin Lear and how she developed. The story was very entertaining if a bit unbelievable but I purchased the next two in the series as soon as I finished this.
The narrater was great also a very good voice.
A great holiday read.

Oh Those Men in Tools Belts

What made the experience of listening to Material Girl the most enjoyable?

there are 2 more stories with reader Natalie Ross


What was one of the most memorable moments of Material Girl?

When Jake wishes our heroine the best.


What does Natalie Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Natalie Ross's male reading voice. It is so sexy! I buy as many books she reads by herself.


Any additional comments?

Julia London books just do not quite make it. Hero's are good,but the female leads tend to just not make the A list. Maybe there is not enough humor, but a slight stab at it. I guess I would have to say, these are romance stories, but with an under tone of the dark side. There is a happy ending, but needs more humor in her stories. A listener wants to feel good after the listen. I am going to try book 2 as the outline sounds a bit more fun.
