It's the most embarrassing night of my life. Not only did I literally run into the hottest guy I've ever laid eyes on in a hotel lobby, but the ice-cold water and whipped cream I'm carrying (don't ask) end up all over me.
If that wasn't enough, that same guy -- the hottest one of all time -- donates twenty-five thousand pounds during a charity auction... to win a date with me.
Things must be looking up, right? After all, a crazy-gorgeous guy just bid a ton of money on dinner with me. But when I see him sit down right next to my father, I know he's not interested in me. He just wants to do business with my dad. FML.
I'm determined to make the situation work. If he really wants to impress my father, the handsome stranger can marry me... for three months. It's all I need to get access to the trust fund so I can fund my charity. Tristan will be able to get what he wants from my dad, and my father will stop hounding me about getting a life. Everyone wins.
Soon it will be over. Until then, I've just got to ignore the rock-hard muscles I felt when I ran into him, the look in his eye that tells me he tastes as good as he looks, and the chemistry that sizzles between us whenever we're together.
A feel-good, fake marriage, standalone in the mister series.
I love when authors take a trope that is well-developed and make just a little tweak to it and make it feel like something else entirely. That said, I can't say what I liked about it and why, as that would be a spoiler and those are awful.
What I can say is that, as usual, I enjoyed this author's latest title. I liked Tristan and Parker, I related to them as people, and I definitely believed in their chemistry.
I loved their initial meeting, both with the pastry tray and during the auction when they are finally introduced officially, with neither of them wearing a single baked good. It gave the reader the idea that this one was going to be a little bit funny, while still steamy with all of the complex emotions you want from a romance.
There was a subplot that was the source of some drama and while I didn't love it, it also wasn't a distraction from the main story and there were some moments in the story that did revolve around it, so I am not able to say it was totally unnecessary...but I do think the important plot moments could have happened without it, if that makes sense.
That said, I enjoyed and recommend this title.
