Genre: contemporary, romantic comedy
Publisher: Lauren Blakely Books
Publication Date: June 1, 2018
I’ve picked up a Lauren Blakely book after a REALLY long time and I’m so bloody happy that it was this book. Christian and Elise’s story was like a modern fairy tale. I love these two together. The story was hilarious, sexy, heart-warming and just so damn hot. I cannot get enough of these two and a re-listen is happening in the near future for sure.
This book had so many moments where I couldn’t stop grinning like a fool. I’d be sitting in the metro just listening and grinning like a fool because Christian was so goddamn charming. And aaaghh Elise,GAWD I LOVE HER! Lauren Blakely writes THE BEST women ever.
This was my first time listening to both Grace Grant and Shane East and I’ve become a fan for life. These two embodied Christian and Elise so perfectly and just I didn’t want the book to end. If the book was 72 hours long, I’d still want more.
Absolutely beautiful story. Equally brilliant narration!

I’ll say this about Christian — he made one hell of a first impression. When I first saw the strapping man, he was doing handstands naked on a dock along the canal. His crown jewels were far more entertaining than anything else I’d seen on the boat tour, so I did what any curious woman would do — I took his photo. I might have looked at the shot a few dozen times. Little did I know I’d meet him again, a year later, at a secret garden bar in the heart of the city, where I’d learn that his mind and his mouth were even more captivating. But given the way my heart had been trampled, I wanted only a simple deal — No strings. No expectations.
Our arrangement worked well enough until the day I needed a lot more from him…
Let me just say, this whole part-time lover thing was her idea. I’d have gone all-in from the start, but hey, when a gorgeous, brilliant woman invites you into her bed, and only her bed…well, I said yes.
But then, one hysterical phone call from my brother later, begging me to find myself a wife so grandfather’s business stays in the family, and I need a promotion with Elise. Turns out a full-time husband suits her needs too, and a temporary marriage of convenience ought to do the trick, until we can simply untie the knot…
As long as no one finds out…
As long as no one gets hurt…
As long as no one falls in love…
But our ending was one I never saw coming.
