Publisher's Summary

On paper, it's pretend. But my heart knows what's real.

His proposal came in a little black envelope with 13 unlucky words: You still owe me that favor, doll, and I'm cashing in. Marry me.

In a normal life, I'd never get hitched to Calvin Randolph. Not with his heart-stopping blue eyes, infamous player reputation, and an ego bigger than the part of his anatomy he loves boasting about the most.

Been there, done that. All except the last part, which he's left to my shameful imagination for seven years apart.

Of course, the fake fiancée contract I just signed is anything but normal. Neither was the tragic day our schoolyard romance died, when he made an unspeakable sacrifice.

He saved my life. He paid a terrible price. Now, I owe him big.

He's come to collect in make believe: the blushing lies, the sideways glances leaving me breathless, the teasing kisses every time his teeth grab my bottom lip in front of the world.

It shouldn't be this hard.

It's just pretend. It's just a few weeks. I can totally resist the demanding, cold, obscenely handsome man he's become.

We have our rules. But the simple one I kept to myself might be harder: don't fall in love.

I already did that once. I know the risks. I won't let it happen.

Because if his charm steals my heart again, if I let him go all the way when his lips trace scary promises on mine, this paper engagement becomes real enough to ruin us....

Alpha male heat advisory, emotional powder keg, and hard won happily ever after inside! This is a stand-alone full length novel with no cliff-hangers. Discover the fire and mystery Wall Street Journal best-selling author Nicole Snow brings to romance!

A DISAPPOINTING LISTEN I’M AFRAID

The trouble with a good female narrator is that they totally spoil you for anything less and, when a book’s reader is just so-so or not that great, then they fail to capture your interest, hold your undivided attention, excite you with their vocal nuances, make you swoon with a believable deeper male pitch and entertain you by delivering an enjoyable listen. Unfortunately (for me) this book suffered because of this.. but it wasn’t all on the narration.. no, there were some pretty bad statements, sentences and scenes too which had me skipping, missing and speeding up instead of savouring each dual POV chapter. Even the sex scenes failed to impress and had some pretty bad wording for what should’ve been sexy, sweet and sensual.. in fact, I can’t believe Nicole Snow wrote this.

Worth a credit? This is my thoughts only.. and maybe it’s just because my last few perfect listens have spoiled me for anything less, but for me it’s a NO not worth a credit - and I’ll be asking for mine back.

Oh dear ...!

I will be sending this back .
I finished it in the hope it would improve . It didn’t .
The story was predictable but dragged on .
The narrators were barely tolerable . The Ellie McClenden was monotonous at best !
I just can’t find anything good I’m afraid . I will stop now ...!

Ok

Well I wasn’t sure I was going to like this book as I didn’t like the main characters at first but as the book progressed it got better I started to like them , not my favourite Nicole Snow book .
