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...
Cooper is the kind of guys that sees a woman that is in distress and his protective side takes over making him more than willing to bend over backwards to help a woman. Or, more in this case, upgrade his ticket to first class to sit beside Kayla and distract her from while flying to her sister’s wedding. During this flight, a few things happen: Kayla’s nerves lessen because of Coopers amazing ability to distract her (wow!) and Cooper realizes that there is something special about Kayla that sparks his curiosity. This curiosity makes Cooper offer his services to accompany her to her sister’s wedding and play the role of the made of up boyfriend.
Cooper and Kayla were the kind of characters that I love reading about. They are so witty, loving, giving, and perfect for each other (even though they both restrain from accepting that they are made for one another.) Their time together shows the reader that they have that chemistry that we all love to read about, in bed and out of bed, but throughout this book, each character is remembering that this is just an act even though they are falling for each other.
