About this ebook

One little white lie leads to more than she planned...

Straight-laced lawyer Kate Matthews always plays by the rules. But when her ex gets engaged and a big promotion is on the line at work, she blurts out that she has a new boyfriend. And now that she’s proved she “has a life” outside of work, everything is perfect. Except for one teeny little detail—there is no boyfriend. And now Kate’s liable for her little white lie...

Dominic Sorensen is hot, charming, and very definitely not Kate’s type. But not only does Dominic want to help Kate renovate her home, he’s also willing to play “boyfriend.” All he wants in return is a little pro bono work for his sister.

Now instead of Mr. Right, Kate has a delectable Mr. Fix-It-Right—and some unbelievable sexual chemistry. And if falling for Dominic is a breach of contract, Kate is guilty as charged...

Each book in the Sorensen Family series is STANDALONE:
* Her Backup Boyfriend
* Her Accidental Husband
* The Playboy's Proposal
* Her Surprise Engagement

I love this story! The characters are likeable and the romance sweet. I like that the protagonist is a powerful woman in the sense that she didn't need to depend on the man to survive, she is a successful woman without being hard-headed and irritatingly stubborn. She has a heart and her reactions are quite reasonable. Don't get me started on the hero's swoon-worthy personality. He is an amazing character; sweet, handsome and funny without needing to be alpha-like. Loved it!

I really enjoyed reading the budding romance between Kate and Dominic. I appreciated the fact that the author really took the time to let the reader relate to Kate as a determined woman in pursuit of a career and how the idea of falling in love and starting a family can seem counterintuitive. I am really glad I stumbled upon this book and I highly recommend it! Kate and Dominic have been officially added to my favorite couple list!

I love this book! The hero, Dominic was as charming and gentle as ever. A lovely reminder that priorities can change. Can't wait to read the other Sorensen family series.

About the author

Ashlee was thirteen when she sneaked her first Kathleen E. Woodiwiss book hidden away in her mom's closet. After two days of staying home "sick" from school to finish it, she was hooked. Her rabid love for romance has continued ever since, and after a misadventure in the world of law, she is finally settling into her dream job of writing about people finding their happily ever afters—the only stories worth reading, after all.

Ashlee lives in the greater Salt Lake Valley in Utah with her sweetie, two fabulous kids, and a dog and cat that vie equally for her attention. Sometimes by sitting on her computer when she's trying to work. And although surrounded by picturesque mountains and beautiful landscapes, she's practically allergic to direct sunlight, the outdoors, and anything that involves communing with nature. Give her a book, an abundance of coffee, and a shady (enclosed) spot with a view and she's happy.

Whether writing contemporary romances or romances with mystery and suspense, Ashlee aims to create down-to-earth heroines and heroes that will make you laugh and fall in love all over again.

You can find her on the web at www.AshleeMallory.com or lurking on Twitter (@ashleemallory) and Facebook. Drop her a line! She'd love to hear from you.
