A fun, sexy new stand-alone from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

He's sexy and confident, the kind of man every woman notices. You know, the one with the to-die-for body and panty-melting smirk. And then there's the way his designer suits drape over his broad shoulders and big...well, we've all heard the rumors, the ones that say he's up for any challenge.

But I can't see him that way. He's my boss—technically one of the owners of the company where I work—and definitely not in my league. Men like him don't notice women like me, and they don't date them.

And I don't date men like him.

Until that one time that I catch him in a compromising position when I'm also in need of a last-minute date for a wedding...and then it's not real. It's blackmail.

For one weekend, he's my plus-one.

Beautiful and unobtainable.

From the moment she walked into my office with those stunning blue eyes and crazy sensual curves, she's been on my mind. Three years and never once has she acted interested in me. Usually I flash a million-dollar smile and women fall to their knees, some literally.

Not her.

Then on the occasion that I agree to let another woman do that—fall to her knees—guess who happens to catch us?

It may not be the most conventional way to get on her radar, but I didn't get this far in business without knowing when to seize an opportunity. If this sexy little firecracker with perfectly kissable lips thinks she can blackmail me into attending her cousin's wedding, I'm going to jump at the chance to be her plus-one.

Maria’s Review

3.5 stars
➦This is a pretty enjoyable romance with a fake relationship trope. It’s full of fun banter, silly situations and steam. Low on angst too! So if you’re looking for a light and fun read then do check it out!

➦The heroine of this novel needs to bring a date to a wedding. But she has nobody to ask! So, when she happens to be in the bathroom while his boss engages in some inappropriate activity with a coworker, she sees a perfect opportunity for blackmail. Because why not? He’s rich and hot and would be a perfect plus one.

➦Little does she know, however, that he would be the one benefiting from their deal. Because he’s had a crush on her for years but, being used to women practically jumping him, he patiently waits for miss prime and proper to notice him. Or something.

➦The rest of the story involves obnoxious family gatherings, vibrator jokes and acceptance into a mile high club. Cute and sexy, pretty fast paced. I liked it a lot, I didn’t completely love it. I think I needed just a bit more angst. And I didn’t completely fall over heels for the hero, but that’s just one person’s opinion. I definitely encourage you to find out for yourselves! 🙂
