A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...
This marine's the perfect hoax…if she doesn’t fall for him first.
Stats whiz Kayla Moriarity knows her way around numbers and algorithms. Men, on the other hand, are unsolvable equations. Now Kayla’s en route to her sister’s wedding—alone and without the fictional boyfriend she invented for her family. Fortunately, her plane comes complete with complimentary cocktails and a ridiculously hot ex-marine in the seat beside her. And that’s all it takes for Kayla’s inhibitions to go sailing out the airlock...
Cooper Shillings has soft spot for people in trouble, but he certainly wasn’t expecting to land in it himself—and definitely not while getting naughty mid-air with a sexy southern belle. When he hears Kayla’s predicament, however, he offers his services as a stand-in boyfriend. After all, he’s heading overseas soon...and how could he refuse a little no-strings wickedness?
It’s the perfect plan. And all Kayla has to do is ensure her family falls for the ultimate bluff, without falling for it—and Cooper—in the process..
Temporarily Yours is a short and sweet but bland. The characters did not make much of an impact.
The hero and heroine both have very minor family issues: they don’t know how to talk to their [beloved] family. The hero also has some PTSD-like issues stemming from losing his best friend while on duty in Afghanistan.
Honestly, the story is cute and short…but it’s nothing to write home about. I probably will read other books in the series if I can find someone to loan them.
