It was Donovan’s idea.
I don’t even know how he got me on board. Sure, I could use a break from the one-night stands and merry-go-round lovers in my bed, but I hadn’t thought that putting a ring on a woman’s finger was the answer.
Especially not that woman.
Elizabeth Dyson needs to marry to get access to her father’s company and take over as president. If I take on the role of groom, she’ll hand over her advertising subsidiary to Reach Inc. the firm I own with Donovan, my supposed best friend.
Problem is that, even though the girl is confident and sexy and brilliant, she doesn’t know the first thing about running an empire. And she’s awfully particular about the wedding plans, even though it’s a FAKE wedding, for all intents and purposes. And we can’t seem to spend more than five minutes together without wanting to tear each other’s hair out.
Worst of all, I can’t stop imagining what it would be like to kiss her.
And soon I’m unsure how much of this business arrangement is just play and how much of it is real.
Book one of two.
"Paige has done it again with another scorching, obsessive read." -- New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent
With over 1 million books sold, Laurelin Paige is the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today Bestselling Author of the Fixed Trilogy. She's a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there's kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn't seem to complain, however. When she isn't reading or writing sexy stories, she's probably singing, watching Game of Thrones and the Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She's also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn't do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio.

I didn’t have a plan for him.
He was the means to an end, a workaround to the cruel terms of my father’s will that would allow me to inherit his company.
I hadn’t planned to fall for him.
I hadn’t planned to enjoy every minute of our wedding, hadn’t planned to gasp his name so many times that night, hadn’t planned for the sexy games on our honeymoon.
He didn’t plan for his secrets to come out.
And neither of us planned for heartbreak.
