What's a little blackmail between friends? Well, apparently it's even more fun when it's between enemies who have the undeniable hot's for one another!
Donna Alam has a fabulous knack for throwing her characters into dubious, precarious and often riotous situations that just have you sitting back with a glass of wine and thinking.."Ohhh yeah, this is gonna be good!"
Heather needs a plus one for the office wedding of the year, and Archer could use a little less attention drawn to his Casanova ways; or at least that's as Heather sees it, and so what better way to solve both their problems than with a little mutually beneficial blackmail? Only their fake relationship is likely to lead to a shedding of clothes, inhibitions and the ultimate risk...her heart.
Archer Powell is an unabashedly flirtatious rogue, cheeky and "one of the lads", but this man is also chivalrous to his core and has the huge, loyal heart of a lion. Oh, and the tall dark and handsome part isn't lost on Heather either!
Where in contrast, Heather comes across as the office Ice Queen, different even in her retro siren image, so assimilation in the judgey office she works in is already walled off for her. It's no surprise there is something different about her, and I loved her brash way as a result of what makes her special. And evidently so does our hero, and he is absolutely just that in this story for Heather.
"My body following hers is as natural as the tides." As is this author's ability to put the reader in the mood, in the scene and to feel the heat; you're right there in the story too.
It's so easy to get taken away with the characters in Donna's books; to laugh with them, at them, cry with them, swoon with them, nervous for them, and cheer for them. So go ahead and do just that, you won't regret it! This is easily a feel good 5 Star read for me!!
Another stand out book which has great comedic scenes as well as her usual sensual stuff. I liked that the female lead characters is ADD as often this is given to male characters. Loved the integration with Miranda and Harry’s story too.
I usually love Donna's work but I have to say this one somehow didn't quite tick the box don't get me wrong it was still a great read I just didn't connect with her charcaters like I normally do.
Heather needs a date for the office wedding of the year and Archer has a bit of a love them and leave them reputation so what could be better than them attending together at least that is Heather's thought on the matter so she blackmails Archer in to going with her. What she doesn't expect is the connection between them. Can her stand in become her stand out for the rest of her life.
I was given a copy of this book but this is a true and honest review
Donna Alam is one of my favourite authors as her books are well written, have lots of witty dialogue and have great characters. This book has all of that, it’s the story of Heather and Archer and it is the true fake boyfriend to HEA story with both characters not seeing what’s in front of them. Enjoyable read.
