Title: More Than Just A Pair Of Pumps
Author: Alexandra Iff
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Gutsy and stubborn 24 year old Trinity Parker is more than thrilled when she lands a job in a top New York fashion store, crunching numbers in the back office. As luck would have it, it’s on her first day there that she ends up heroically foiling a robbery. Or so she thinks.
The man she thought was stealing, Dimitri DuPont, a handsome and rich distinguished gentleman, insists Trinity apologizes to him for her assumptions. In fact, he demands more.
Dimitri is a man one cannot say no to. So she doesn’t. She succumbs.
Soon, her life becomes a tangled web full of lies and deceit and Dimitri DuPont, the one person who’s been there through it all, takes her out of her comfort zone and leads her on a voyage of discovery.
Alexandra, a singing and dancing force not to be reckoned with, especially when she holds a microphone, is someone who imagined her life would be just like in the film ‘Grease’. So she found her ‘Danny’, married him and right at this moment they are dancing the night away.
She is known for her love of fast cars and her pumps, which she has way too many pairs of. Correction, you can never have too many pairs of pumps!

This is my first book to read by Alexandra Iff. For me this book had me confused at some points and scratching my head at other parts. While the storyline is full of potiential, to me this one fell flat unlike the beautiful Pair of Pumps.
Trinity Parker is a young 24 yr old who has been hired to check out the ‘books’ of a successful store in NYC. Taking on this job would ensure that she would be able to return to school and finally obtain her degree. Although when she walked in on the first day, she convinces herself she witnesses a customer stealing a watch.
Dimitri DuPont is a complete mystery man. Never revealing too much about his ‘investment’ company, never revealing much more than his instant attraction to Trinity after she put her hand in his pocket looking for the ‘stolen watch’.
This book had many twist and turns but I didn’t really get the full effect of them. They were short lived and not enough to justify a reaction. Would love to see this book reworked and re-released because it is one story-line that I can honestly say, I’ve not read before. Great concept, just not executed as well as it could have been.
