Who's the sexy blonde stranger sleeping in Simon Holcroft's bed? The workaholic returns from a business trip to find someone stretched out on his sheets. Between the laundry basket at her side and the smell of orange cleaner, he deduces that the young woman is his maid-and resists the urge to kiss her awake.
But when his brother's fiancé-his own ex-bursts in and strips down to her panties, Simon has to get her dressed and back where she belongs. So he introduces the maid as his fiancée. But his little white lie gets bigger, because now he has to bring his supposed bride-to-be to meet the whole family. One offer-she-can't-refuse later, Simon has bought himself a temporary fiancée.
In debt up to her eyeballs and all alone for the holidays, how could struggling grad student Caroline Sampson not accept her gorgeous client's fantasy proposal? But acting like she's in love comes more easily than she ever expected.
Yet another book that isn't very long at all, but filled with so much that leaves you feeling that the story was about six hundred pages.
It doesn't drag on, nor was it very slow. It was one thing after another. Caroline is a very strong female character that has dealt with a lot and is only trying to finish law school. When Simon makes her an offer she can't resist, her life totally turns upside down, but for the better. Of course she doesn't see it immediately, but Simon was exactly what Caroline needed. I loved the chemistry between the two and love Simon's family. I love reading a story that paints a picture of a family who are very close. I grew up in a big family and my cousins were like my brothers and sisters. So reading and learning about Simon and his family was nice because it reminded me of mine. Caroline has never had a big family so to her it was new, but she too quickly fell in love with Simon's family.
I enjoyed this story and recommend it for a great summer read. It's not very long, but you will finish reading it feeling like it had everything it needed. A Good Choice for Reading.
