So the book boyfriend for the week is

Dominic Sorensen!

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...

He's a sexy one...

As Dominic bent down on his haunches to stare at an array of something or other, her gaze wandered helplessly down.  She carefully checked the side of her mouth for drool.

He looked perfect.  And after the day she'd had, she felt an overwhelming urge to head directly into his arms, to have their strength around her, holder her.  Smell his clean, musky scent.  Feel the touch of his hands on her waist and hips as he pulled her closer and the stubble that darkened his jawline as she raised her mouth to his in a welcome.

I adore the things he says...

"Really.  So I thought we'd take this opportunity to show him and that fiancee of his that you have no interest in him anymore.  How could you, when you have such a sexy, virile Latino glued to your side?"  She crooked a brow up.  "Virile?  Did you actually just say that?" 

His voice was thick with emotion when he finally spoke.  "Whatever you do, Kate, make sure you never settle for anyone who doesn't show you in every breath, every word, every touch that he loves and adores you every day of his life."

I adore how he treats her...

And at the moment, when Dominic chose to let Kate off the hook, she realized she liked him a little more than she probably should.

Don't ask, it's not what it sounds like...

"Okay, you're doing fine, just hold it steady and it will go in easily.  I promise."
"I'm not sure, I feel like it's going out of control.  Look.  I'm shaking."
Dominic could hear the panic in Kate's voice.  But he refused to help her and after another twenty seconds, she drove it home.  And looked down at him, a surprised but satisfied look in her eyes.
"I think I did it."

"Oh, yeah.  I can't see through it at all," he said sarcastically, since he could still see that hourglass shape of hers through any kind of fabric.  She'd discarded the jacket from earlier, leaving him to try to keep his eyes off her curvy assets.


A quick read, I read this one straight through in an evening.  It's everything I love about Bliss books.

Dominic is a great guy that was hurt in the past.  He's not really over it.  Kate is coming out of a hard break-up but she's determined to get everything she wants.  Partner at the law firm she works at is the number one goal she has.  But for that she need the stable home life a strong relationship gives.  Working with her ex and his new fiancee makes it difficult to stay focused but Kate is driven to succeed.

Then she meet Dominic.  Working on renovations for her house, he see an opportunity for both of them to get what they need and he proposes the pretend relationship.

I adore pretend relationships.  It always puts two people together who don't think they're right for each other.  Then when they are forced to keep up appearance, the sparks fly.  Of course, they resist and that's when the fun begins.

This one just reads well.  Things fit and make sense.  There's lots of secondary characters that I love and hope to see in upcoming books.  It's just enjoyable.  Left me smiling.  I saw a few things coming but so enjoyed the ride.  It's a classic Bliss book.  Sweet and satisfying.  If you love the Bliss line, you'll want this one.  If you love a great romance that has you happy at the end, you'll want this one.
