Publisher's Summary

Love wasn’t supposed to be a part of the deal… Even a famed matchmaker like Nolan Madaris’s great-grandmother can’t get it right every time. Nolan, the notorious fun-loving ladies’ man, could never connect with someone as straitlaced as tech whiz Ivy Chapman. Yet the scheme Ivy proposes is tempting - they can pretend to be a couple, just long enough to satisfy their families. But someone forgot to clue in their hearts. 

What happens, though, when Ivy’s plan to get her relatives off her back has an unexpected side effect: getting her into Nolan’s bed? Houston’s number one womanizer may have found the only one who can truly satisfy him, body and soul. But with a man from Ivy’s past determined to be part of her future, both she and Nolan will have to decide what’s fake, what’s real and what’s worth fighting for…

a little let down...

The story was another beautiful Madaris romance by Mrs. Brenda Jackson... but, i was disappointed by the narration. i am accustomed to Mr. Pete Olms suave, husky voice like in all his other Madaris novels and this time... it was totally different.

Great story

I recommend a new narrator. Great love story with a little adventure at the end.

Narrator ruins it for me

The narrator sounds robotic. It is super distracting. I’ll download the kindle version. I cannot concentrate in the story.

MAMA LAVERNE IS AT IT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Brenda Jackson does it again.. She gives a great story about Ivy who has been hurt by a doofs ex-boy friend and Nolan who was told by his ex-girl friend he was only dated so her friend could date his cousin. I say good riddance to both of the ex's. Both came away stronger and knew what they wanted out of life. Mama Laverne maybe in her 90's but she knows about real love. Her love average is 100%.

Thank you Brenda for giving us a strong black woman who did not hesitate to tell her man what was going on so they could work out the problem TOGETHER. Thank you for giving us a strong black man who was not afraid to listen to his heart so he could find true love. It is good to know we are in the 21st century and secrets don't need to be kept to make the story longer. It was enjoyable to catch up with characters from other books and to have them come and help out. It is what family is all about.

Love those Madaris.
