About this ebook

If these two total opposites can find their middle ground, they just might win it all…

Tawny Torres

            I’ve had my life and career mapped out for years, and neither includes an apron, an iron, or a husband—yet. But instead of a promotion I got canned. We’re not talking about that. Whatever. I got a new job, except this company is all about having a healthy work-life balance and I sort of—totally—lied and said I had a boyfriend. Now, I need to find one stat…just temporarily until something better comes along. Someone, please tell me why I asked the gorgeous, charming, David Farber…the man who loves to push my buttons as my stand-in? Because the thoughts I’m having are anything but temporary.

David Farber

            When Tawny asked me to be her boyfriend-for-hire, I didn’t hesitate, except for the money part. I’d been trying to get her to see the real me for months. Now was my chance. She’s everything I could want: tough, tender, smart, and sexy. The timing could be better. Work is killing me, but I got this…I have to. It’s my one shot at getting the cred at work and winning the woman of my dreams.
