A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

This marine's the perfect hoax…if she doesn’t fall for him first.

Stats whiz Kayla Moriarity knows her way around numbers and algorithms. Men, on the other hand, are unsolvable equations. Now Kayla’s en route to her sister’s wedding—alone and without the fictional boyfriend she invented for her family. Fortunately, her plane comes complete with complimentary cocktails and a ridiculously hot ex-marine in the seat beside her. And that’s all it takes for Kayla’s inhibitions to go sailing out the airlock...

Cooper Shillings has soft spot for people in trouble, but he certainly wasn’t expecting to land in it himself—and definitely not while getting naughty mid-air with a sexy southern belle. When he hears Kayla’s predicament, however, he offers his services as a stand-in boyfriend. After all, he’s heading overseas soon...and how could he refuse a little no-strings wickedness?

It’s the perfect plan. And all Kayla has to do is ensure her family falls for the ultimate bluff, without falling for it—and Cooper—in the process...

My Opinion

If you are looking for a hot quick read on a cold winter’s night you can stop looking.

Cooper and Kayla meet at the airport. She is afraid to fly (has to though) and he has a hero complex. So he tries to make her feel better about flying home. While they are in first class, it comes out that she s also upset cause her family wants her to settle down so she invented a fake boyfriend. It is easier that way- instead of the pity, the looks, the disappointment. Since she is going home for her sister’s wedding though she will be asked a bunch of questions about where he is- questions she can’t answer since he is not real. Cooper has a few days on his hands so he volunteers to be her fake boyfriend.

Kayla is cute. When she gets nervous she will ramble off strange statistics. I get why she made a fake boyfriend. Her family loves her and means well. Cooper has survival guilt from the war so he is running away- so it is interesting that he runs straight to her. The chemistry between these two is sizzling- although the insta-action is a little too much for me.

To be honest, my favorite part was the fake break-up and the real make-up.  Yeah, I know it makes no sense but if you read the book you would understand.

Temporarily Yours was a fun, hot read that will keep you entertained for a few hours. Nothing really stood out though hence the 3 stars.

My Rating 3 out of 5 stars
