Rating: 5 Cups
Socialite Savannah Morgan knows that her primary value in life is her daddy’s money. Playing detective, she tries to prove, once and for all, that the man her father wants her to marry is a cheating scum ball. Instead, the tea she orders turns out to be of the Long Island variety and she wakes from a sensual dream of a man who was too good to be real… to find him very real indeed and wearing a wedding ring that matches uncomfortably well with the one now residing on her finger.
Brodie Harper isn’t much of a drinker. But when his best friend ties the knot to nuptial bliss, he swills back quite a bit of tequila in an attempt to drown his own loneliness. Waking up in a room done up like a red Valentine with a hooker wasn’t part of his plan. Finding out he had married the hooker and he didn’t even know her name just makes the hangover all the worse.
To save his contract with an eccentric Texan, they find themselves tied together for a few days pretending to be man and wife. It shouldn’t be hard… the passion between them is real enough even without alcohol blurring their vision. But when the pretend passion begins to unravel under the weight of very real feelings, the two of them struggle to keep their hearts safe. But is it so bad really… being Brodie’s Bride?
This story was so funny and fast-paced, I had a hard time putting it down. The interplay between the characters and the well developed secondary characters made these people literally leap off the page. Riddled with sexual tension, thick enough to cut with a knife, but with such likeable characters, it is next to impossible not to fall in love with them. I loved this story and hope to see more of this author in the future.
