With the impending marriage of James and Tate, the women of Alden are all over Cole Bowen to become his one true love. They are aggressive and persistent But Cole is not the marrying type. He's not the type to bring a woman to his home, spend the night, or see her more than once. Christy isn't looking for a boyfriend. After running away from her ruined engagement, and her mother who calls he constantly to let her know she's making a mistake, dating is the last thing on her mind. Sex on the other hand, is not. She wants it and is even willing to consider hiring a male prostitute to get what she wants. Enter Cole. Cole has the perfect arrangement to their problems. Christy agrees to fake date him to keep the women of Alden off his back, and in return, Cole offers her his sexual services.
Cole is one of my favorite types of man. He's the alpha male. The man in control, both in the bedroom and outside of it. Christy, on the other hand, is my least favorite kind of woman. She's insecure, and constantly puts herself down. This kind of woman annoys me but it's great to watch Cole, be strong enough for both of them and help her break those barriers down. Unfortunately in the process, she falls for Cole and has to let him know that. Since he's not the boyfriend type of guy, what does he do?
This story was fun, hot & sexy and a great read.
