Jill Michaels prides herself on one thing: being independent. That is until her daughter gets into an elite school, and she needs money more than ever. It seems her fairy godmother—aka her deceased Grammy—has granted that wish in the form of one-fourth of her estate. The only catch? She must be married by her thirtieth birthday. In two months.
Aaron Collins is fresh out of the army and back in town to help his father’s failing business. When he runs into Jill at a hotel where she’s attending a single’s mixer, he makes sure she doesn’t make it past his room and into another guy’s arms. When he hears about her predicament, he has a plan: they’ll get married and keep it a secret. And maybe have a little sexy fun until he leave towns for his new job.
But letting go of the woman of his dreams may be harder than Aaron could have ever imagined.

At the reading of her beloved grandmother's will single mom Jill Michaels learns that the only way she can claim her inheritance is to marry before her thirtieth birthday, problem is she doesn't have a man in her life, nor does she really have time for one. But with her daughter's expensive private school fees piling up, she could really use the inheritance to pay for things. With no man on the horizon, her friends suggest she go to a dating mixer party to meet a suitor, that would be willing to play her fake husband, long enough for her to receive the inheritance. While she isn't so receptive to marrying a complete stranger, she also really isn't willing to let this opportunity slip through her fingers, so she reluctantly goes to the mixer. After meeting several duds she is ready to bail, but once again her friends come through for her in a big way... a strong, sexy, hunk of a man kind of way.
The moment Aaron Collins learns that his teenage crush is in the same hotel that he is in he knows he has to meet-up with her and catch up. She was always his one regret, she was beautiful, popular, and he was always too chicken to make his move. But he is a changed man now, a very confident man now, and the moment she walks back into his life, he isn't about to let her slip away, without at least first making his interest in her known. Then he learns why she is at the hotel and the thought of her hooking up with another man from a dating mixer puts him on edge, no way is he letting someone else take her home. So he makes her an offer she can't refuse...
I love a good reunion romance, and I have to say this one totally hit the mark, it was sexy, funny, and left me with a happy heart! These two walked onto the page, and I was instantly wrapped up in their story, they had some serious chemistry and I knew the minute they let loose, there were going to be some serious fireworks, and boy were there, I'm still seeing stars!! I thoroughly enjoyed my time with these two, and I am certain that if you give them the chance they will charm their way into your heart too!! Highly recommend this one, it is sure to satisfy all your reading must-have's and then some!!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.
FALLING FOR THE FAKE FIANCE EXCERPT:
What a weird feeling—she sat across from someone she’d seen every day in high school, and yet the man in front of her was a complete stranger. One with blue eyes so dark they looked like whorls of ink. Ones that were subtly undressing her, if she was reading the situation right. She took another sip from her glass. Was it getting hot in here? Because, man, was she thirsty. Better to focus on things she could control. Like the tasty wine. Yes, this wine was fantastic. Maybe if she focused enough on her drink, her body would stop tingling from the heated glances Aaron kept throwing her way.
With shaky hands, she placed the glass back on the table. It’d been a while since she’d been in the company of any guy she was actually interested in, but she forced down the nerves. “What do you have lined up now that you’re out of the military?”
“I’ve been rooming with a buddy up in D.C. He did me a solid and found me a job at a private security firm he works for. I’ll start it as soon as I’m finished helping my dad. What have you been up to?”
Oh, you know, getting wild and crazy with Netflix binges of Paw Patrol and worrying that she’d get some type of lung disease due to accidentally inhaling too much mac and cheese dust. Her life was glamorous. It might have qualified as pathetic that she enjoyed dentist appointments and even routine check-ups just for the sole fact she could get a minute to herself. Her AARP card was due in the mail any time now. “Same old, same old. Nothing really changes in our town.”
“Besides the fact that you’re now attending singles mixers. When did that start?” He took a long sip of his beer, watching her with an intensity that made her skin tingle.
“Tonight. It was silly, really.” The last thing Jill wanted was for Aaron to know that she’d gone out in search of a husband, because how desperate did that sound? One bad haircut stood between her and Brittany Spears circa 2007.
“I don’t know how long I’ll be in town, but I’d be more than happy to take you out.”
His forearms flexed as he gripped the pint glass, and she mentally shook her fist at the fact the sleeves of his flannel weren’t pushed farther up his arm. Maybe Kate was onto something. Broad shoulders, dark eyes, lips that she should have noticed were kissable years ago, because whoa.
The next time she glanced down at her cell, they’d been talking for hours, catching up on everything from crazy stories from his time in the military to her latest run-in with a very involved dance mom. For real, those ladies were scary.
She peered around the room and realized that they were the only occupied table, besides a few stragglers at the bar. “I should be getting back to my room. It’s getting late.” This was the best dinner she’d had in months. No, years. When was the last time she’d actually enjoyed the company of a man, one whose deep voice was a warm caress down her spine? By her calculation and the fact she could call herself a born-again virgin thanks to the lack of action…it had been a freaking long time. Maybe it was the wine. Or maybe it was the muscly, drool-worthy man in front of her, but dammit, she wanted one night of fun. Screw the whole search for a temporary husband—it wasn’t going to happen. But she could be happy for a few hours in other ways.
