This soldier’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—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 by Diane Alberts is a sexy fun quick read about two people avoiding love at all costs. Both headed in different directions, both with parent issues, both running from relationships, and both on the same flight.
Cooper is an ex-marine heading to North Carolina, where he’s starting a new job that will send him back overseas. He’s running away from anything that might make him face his demons. When he stumbles upon Kayla who’s heading to North Carolina for her sisters wedding. The two strike up a conversation which leads to Kayla admitting that she’s afraid of flying.
Cooper decides to make it his mission to help Kayla during the flight. As they get to know each other better they also discover they’re attracted to one another. By the time the plane lands they’re more than ready to hump at baggage claim. 🙂
One thing leads to another and they end up at Kayla’s hotel. It’s there that they devise a plan to fool Kayla’s parents. See Kayla’s parents are always trying to marry her off. So she told them she had a boyfriend. Only she doesn’t and when Cooper decides to be her fake boyfriend….well things start to get complicated.
They both try desperately not to get close. Neither of them wants to get involved yet it doesn’t seem to make a difference because the more they try to keep things light and well fake, the closer and closer they get.
This is a really cute albeit sexy love story. These two obviously didn’t know how much they needed each other until they were face to face. In just a few short days playing fake they manage to learn what takes most of us years and years to learn. So even though this is a whirlwind relationship it does feel believable. They are both able to hep each other when no one else could.
You’ll be rooting for them for sure. This was my first Diane Alberts’ book. Her writing is crisp, fun, and sexy. I would have liked this story to have a little more depth but that’s hard to do in 200 pages. I look forward to reading of Diane’s books!
