Immersed by Jennifer Griffith
Lisette Pannebaker speaks five languages and has a brilliant business plan—personal language immersion. Clients can hire her to shadow them and speak all day in any language they need to learn for business or travel—whatever. But there’s a major hitch: she’s far too pretty. Clients with less than honorable intentions sign up just
have Lisette at their side.
Solution? A make-under. Way under. It works like a charm. None of her male clients show her the least bit of interest. Until… Erik.
Erik Gunnarsson is charming, kind, and smart—everything she’s ever looked for. Even though he seems to have a secret and she swore she'd never date a client, Lisette is tempted to shed her disguise—even if it means jeopardizing her career.
Jennifer Griffith studied French, German, Japanese, and a wee bit of Spanish in her school days. Her grandmother was Norwegian, and Jennifer grew up with lots of Scandinavian traditions floating around, including fabulous cardamom laced cookies called Krumkaker, made on a fancy waffle iron. However, she’d never dream of trying to teach someone any of those languages. And she might botch the cookies. Instead, she writes novels in English, drives her five kids a million places, and laughs with her husband, who came up with the plot for Immersed because he’s just a cool muse like that.
Immersed is the sixth book in the Ripple Effect series by author Jennifer Griffith. Once again the reader (namely ME) is taken on an epic adventure straight from the author's imagination to my ereader. The main character, Lisette has a horrible problem - men can't get past her pretty face to see her in a professional way - so she does what any beautiful, intelligent woman does for her career, she gets a "make-under." Yep, that's right - sort of a make over only opposite. She wants to be less attractive and more plain so that the male clients who hire her don't focus so much on her physical attributes, yet one doesn't seem to get the message - and she finds herself smitten with him and considering exposing her little make under.
As the story unfolds, I found myself laughing and loving how well-written the characters are, how engaging the story is and how much I have enjoyed reading not only this book but the others in this series.
Although Immersed is the sixth in the series, I felt that this story could be read on it's own without having to read the first five books. A fun and fantastic clean read that kept this reader entertained from beginning to end.
