I need a wife. NOW.
With this hockey season on the line, I can’t afford any distractions. And a dating reality show is one huge distraction. But there’s a surefire way to get out of this dating show contract. All I have to do is get married.
Even with a reputation like mine-the Scottish bad boy of hockey-I’m confident I can find someone to play Mrs. Taylor Savage for a year.
Like Becca Barnes. The one who got away. Too bad she hates me. But that’s why she’s perfect for this arrangement.
My contract is dissolved. She gets the bakery of her dreams.
She just has to live with me and pretend she loves me in public for a year. No strings. No touching (unless there’s a camera). No messy heartbreak.
It’s sure to be a challenge because with the way I crave her, keeping my hands to myself might be harder than I planned.
But I can handle this. Being married to her will be easy. As long as I don’t fall in love with her along the way.
When Becca meets a hot Scot on the ferry, sparks fly and the last thing she expects is to nearly kill him on their first date, but that’s exactly what happens. And things only get crazier from there. Becca is a baker struggling to afford renovations for her new bakery. Her life is work non-stop so she doesn’t have the time – or the patience – for the smooth-talking player, no matter how hot. And Taylor Savage is HOT. But it’s no matter, she’s not going to go there.
Taylor isn’t one to take no for an answer, not when he can tell she doesn’t mean it. Yes, he made her mad but if she’d just give him a chance to explain, she’d realize he’s not so bad. Becca doesn’t want to hear his excuses, though. So when he asks her to marry him to get him out of an awful endorsement contract, she has no interest. The last thing her life needs is to proximity to this infuriating yet irresistible man. He softens her up by begging and sweetens the deal by paying for the bakery renovations, so she can’t say no.
Fake relationships are a favorite and this one was perfect. Becca is sweet and funny and independent and determined not to fall for hockey’s bad boy. Taylor is impossible to resist and so sweet on Becca, even before she realizes how he feels. Their story is sweet and steamy fun. I received an ARC from Candi Kane PR in exchange for an honest review.
