Publisher's Summary

Straight-laced lawyer Kate Matthews always plays by the rules. But when her ex gets engaged and a big promotion is on the line at work, she blurts out that she has a new boyfriend. And now that she's proved she "has a life" outside of work, everything is perfect. Except for one teeny little detail - there is no boyfriend. And now Kate's liable for her little white lie.

Dominic Sorensen is hot, charming, and very definitely not Kate's type. But not only does Dominic want to help Kate renovate her home, he's also willing to play "boyfriend". All he wants in return is a little pro bono work for his sister. Now instead of Mr. Right, Kate has a delectable Mr. Fix-It-Right - and some unbelievable sexual chemistry. And if falling for Dominic is a breach of contract, Kate is guilty as charged.

Contains foul language

My idea of a "sweet" story should not have cursing. I counted over 30 conversations with cursing, including two "G.D.'s" At first, there was one or two per chapter, then it got worse around chapter 14. It ruined an otherwise good story. At least it was in the Escape package and didn't cost me a credit. Can't there be two versions of these kinds of books, the original and a "clean" one for people who like the story but not the language?

Cute easy story

This is my first time with this Author and Narrator. I found this story to be a cute and easy story to listen too. I thought Dominic and Kate had great chemistry. The outcome was pretty obvious but mostly because it is like most romance novels but getting there was still cute. I can see myself picking back up on the remaining books in the series at some point.

Narration frustrating

Narrator drops "t's" - unfortunately in words like Payton one of the characters, which sounds like "Pay-un" and eaten, "ea-un"etc. She doesn't do it with all words, but often enough to make me grind my teeth.
