Conor Hammond is desperate.
Well, not quite—but desperate enough to do something potentially stupid. His high school reunion is right around the corner and, now that he’s a wealthy business owner, all those girls who used to diss him will want to hit on him—and he needs a buffer. His assistant Morgan Tredway’s going to help out by playing his fiancée for the weekend.
But then Conor notices how nice Morgan’s legs look in those red heels…and Morgan remembers how she used to have a crush on her boss. That doesn’t stop them from telling themselves that these shenanigans are just distractions. It’ll be back to business as usual come Monday morning.
Except the emotions feel real.
When Conor’s propositioned by the ultimate trophy girlfriend and Morgan’s ex comes crawling back to her, will they look back on their weekend romance as just a fling or seal the deal?

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Mo and Connor are a great couple…..errr…..a great boss/assistant couple. They have a great vibe and a wonderful ability to bounce off each other. When Connor hangs with is buddy Brock and follows his “Fake Fiancée” idea, he soon finds out not only are they compatible in the boardroom but the bedroom too!!
Connor is the nerd turned stud in his high school class. He doesn’t want to deal with the gold diggers, so he asks his friend Morgan to save him from the claws and a possible future ex-wife. Morgan is angry and hurt over being dumped by her ex, so she agrees because she she is getting paid and new shoes outta the deal…can’t hurt right???
As the weekend goes forward, Connor and Mo start to feel the sizzle of chemistry when they both see each other as more then just a boss/assistant. They both start to wonder…..what if. When Connors dream girl from high school makes her intentions knows, Morgan has to keep her lips zipped because this is Connors dream girl….or is it??? Connor has always lusted over Raquel and when she throws herself at him, he is conflicted because she isn’t Morgan!!!
I loved the banter between Morgan and Connor. Its obvious they enjoy each other’s company and personalities. I liked seeing this friendship cross that line to MORE and then struggle with wondering if they made a mistake.
Side Note – I liked how the epilogue was written. The style was GREAT for this couple and story!!
“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” While you’re more likely to see Jade headbanging instead of Dirty Dancing, she—like Baby—won’t be put in a corner…or a box. So even though you can’t really stick her books in one genre, you could say she mostly writes steamy Contemporary Romance—and, while you’re at it, you’ll notice in her stories that Jade freaking loves Colorado, hard music, coffee, bad words, and CHOCOLATE!!! And so do her characters.
Oh, and there’s always a glimmer of hope…because if life doesn’t have that, what’s the damn point?
