Publisher's Summary

What happens when a pretend boyfriend wants more than make-believe? Find out in this Westmoreland novel from New York Times best-selling author Brenda Jackson!

No red-blooded man turns down the chance to escort gorgeous Trinity Matthews - and Adrian Westmoreland is definitely red-blooded. For her, he'll pretend to be her man. But keeping his hands to himself? That is impossible. A Westmoreland always keeps his word, but how long before Adrian turns this fake affair into something real?

Trinity is a pain

The main female character was annoying. She was difficult and extremely condescending. The narrator made he sound like an annoying spoiled child:

Ok story, but a Bit Boring

I listened to the audio version of this book. I would give it 2.5 stars. The story was blah and the narration sounded stilted and boring. I am not sure the narrator had much to work with in this book. There was no emotion to the narration. I had read this book some time ago and it was a DNF for me. I thought listening to the audio Book would be better.

I have loved the Westmoreland series, but I have also come to discover that it is the earlier books that evoke some feeling in me. I felt no connection between Adrian and Trinity. It seems so fake reading about the perfect (maybe 1 character flaw) Westmoreland man falling for the gorgeous, yet slightly insecure, hazel eyed woman, and reaching her from whatever situation she is in at the moment.

I wanted to enjoy this book as much as the earlier books, but I just didnt.
