Bennie's Wish by Xara X. Xanakas

A pure romantic comedy like it was long I haven't had the chance to read, my only complaint is that it was only a novella. I really hope the author will consider to revisit this pair, since they were sweet and cute.

Aloysious "Ally" is a sad rich guy; cute but not handsome, he was not lucky with the choice of friends, who are basically munching off him and treating him like a money spounge. Ally is so mistreated that he is no more able to see the good in him, and so of course is not able to understand when a guy is really interested in him and not his money.

Benedict "Bennie" is not maybe as rich as Ally, but with a career as supermodel, he is quite requested both in his public than private life, problem is that people want him in the private for the spotlight they can gain in the public.

They are perfect for each other, and I really liked how Bennie was not into this story for nothing else if not that he really cares for Ally; Bennie doesn't see Ally as a pity case, and when the reader has the change to see Ally through Bennie's eyes, it's a completely different guy, sweet, cute, clever, someone you'd like to cuddle. Doesn't matter if he is bald and a
little overweighted, that is not what Bennie sees.

This is the story of their first meeting, for that reason I think the author has the chance to tell us more, especially since she infuses a light streak in the story that is refreshining.
