Immersed by Jennifer Griffith

Immersed tour

Today, I have the sixth and final novella  in the from the Ripple Effect Romance Novella Series.  It is a series of 6 clean novellas by 6 different authors. 

“Like a pebble tossed into calm water, a simple act can ripple outward and have a far-reaching effect on those we meet, perhaps setting a life on a different course—one filled with excitement, adventure, and sometimes even love.”

Immersed NewAuthor: 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.

In a way, I'm sad to see this series end.  I have enjoyed it immensely!  Immersed was a nice way to wrap it up. While this wasn't my favorite of the set, I did enjoy Lisette and Erik's story.  I thought Erik was too cute.  I liked the way he wormed his way into Lisette's heart.  It was too bad that Lisette had to resort to majorly toning down her looks in order to get ahead in her business.  It just kind of proved the stereotypes of today that really need to go away. 

The one part of the story that I didn't like was the scenario with Lisette's mother and the marriage contract.  I had a hard time believing that one. No court in this country would allow a contract like that to be legally binding.   

In any case, I hope you will give this series a try.  It was great to meet all of these wonderful characters.  I hope this set of authors does something again like this in the future.  It was a lot of fun to read!

About the author:

unnamedFDRE9K6NJennifer 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.
