I'll say this about Christian - he made one hell of a first impression. When I first saw the strapping man, he was doing handstands naked on a dock along the canal. His crown jewels were far more entertaining than anything else I'd seen on the boat tour, so I did what any curious woman would do - I took his photo. I might have looked at the shot a few dozen times. Little did I know I'd meet him again, a year later, at a secret garden bar in the heart of the city, where I'd learn that his mind and his mouth were even more captivating. But given the way my heart had been trampled, I wanted only a simple deal - No strings. No expectations. Our arrangement worked well enough until the day I needed a lot more from him.
Let me just say, this whole part-time lover thing was her idea. I'd have gone all-in from the start, but hey, when a gorgeous, brilliant woman invites you into her bed, and only her bed...well, I said yes. But then, one hysterical phone call from my brother later, begging me to find myself a wife so grandfather's business stays in the family, and I need a promotion with Elise. Turns out a full-time husband suits her needs too, and a temporary marriage of convenience ought to do the trick, until we can simply untie the knot...as long as no one finds out...as long as no one gets hurt...as long as no one falls in love....But our ending was one I never saw coming.

Such a great listen
This is such a great book. The story is fabulous and the narrators work great together. You will definitely want to listen to this.
I love Lauren Blakely books, I mean who doesn't. This is a typical marriage of convenience story, but the setting is incredible and the way Elise and Christian work together and interact is amazing. I think my favorite part of the story was the beginning (lust at first sight) and the ending (juvenile corruption). I love that history is repeating itself and there is no shame in it.
As for the narrators, they work really well together. The story was engaging and the American combined with the British was a great combo.
