Nothing chases away the January blues like a brazen quickie. I love a book that gives me an escape from reality and as far as easy breezy, sexy reads go 'Temporarily yours' hits the mark. This story is written by a new-to-me author and I can assure you that it won't be the last time I pick up a book by Diane Alberts. With a smile on my face and my brazen addiction satisfied for now, here are the rest of my thoughts ...

She might think this was the end of their time together, but if he had anything to say about it... it was only the beginning.

It's not secret that I'm a total Brazen junky. Whenever I need a fix for something sexy and steamy, they're my go to books. Add into that me being a fan of Diane Alberts, and I just had to snatch this up. Did I like it? Sure. I got my fix. But I was still left feeling like I wanted more. Guess I'm a greedy hussy that way.

I couldn't put this book down! It was sweet, funny and sexy as hell.

Temporarily yours is about Kayla and Cooper. They meet at the airport. So it's practically LOVE AT FIRST FLIGHT. Kayla is afraid of flying, so Cooper "sacrifices" himself to help her more than one way....*wink wink*.

She tells him about her sisters wedding and her dilemma about her "fake boyfriend" for her family's sake. One leads to another and Cooper swoops in to help a damsel in di

Quick to hop in the sack doesn’t always work for me, but it did in Temporarily Yours. Why? I liked both characters from the get-go, Cooper and Kayla had good chemistry, and I believed and felt their attraction.

I enjoyed how Kayla’s profession played into the story, she was an actuary, and she had stats for everything, but she couldn't bank on how hard she would fall for Cooper. He was so honorable and protective, and sometimes love can beat th

Sometimes reading can be like a one night have an itch... you want to get it scratched without any complications...and then enjoy the process. It doesn't have to be deep… it doesn't have to make you contemplate the meaning of life... it just is a little something to get the mental mojo working. You get you the thrill of a meet, chemistry, maybe a little concern and then that satisfying happy ever after.

Temporarily yours was a sweet, sexy and quick read. Kayla and Cooper meet in an airport lounge area and their attraction is instant. Within a short time both learn that neither one of them is looking for a serious relationship. Kayla has all sorts of statistics that say relationships don’t last and Cooper's life doesn’t allow for one.

Kayla is sitting in the airport waiting for her flight, knowing she is going to plummet to her death.

Cooper has taken on a new security job and will be heading overseas soon. He sees Kayla waiting for her flight, the same flight he is on, and next to her is the only empty seat in the area.

After talking, Cooper decides to upgrade his ticket to first class so he can sit by her and help her get through her flight. His "distraction" techniques definitely worked for Kayla. Afte

4.5 - "You can use me in any way you desire." ... "Any way. Anywhere. Anytime." Stars!

Temporarily Yours is the first book in the Shillings Agency series, and what an absolute cracker it is too. I absolutely loved both Kayla and Cooper, and their story was one that kept me totally immersed until the very end of the book.

This was a quickie with a side of smokin hot. The relationship moves at light year speed, they meet in the airport, give in to explosive orgasms chemistry within 24 hours of meeting, decide to spend a weekend together pretending their in a committed relationship to fool her family, and then after several meaningful orgasms conversations, decide they love each other and want to give this thing between them a shot.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review

I liked it, but it bothered me a bit that it was in third person.
But that's personal so don't take it to heart.

It was fast paced, but for this story it was good.
All the things were told and no lose strings.

It was a hell of a lot steamy! And lot's of fun!
It was a great book that I would tell you to read!

This was a hot little read. I loved the way Cooper and Kayla met. I like that the hot guy made a fool of himself for once. You always read about the woman going all tongue tied and tripping so this was a nice change. I especially loved Kayla's character. She was a bit nerdy with her random talk of facts but instead of being a shy nerd, she was a confident woman. She was straight up with Cooper. It was very refreshing. Great read!

This was a fun, quick, sweet romance when you're just looking for something steamy and fun. There's more sex than substance, which got slightly irritating,and I found myself skimming the abundant sex scenes. I would've liked to have seen more interaction outside the bedroom, but then again, they only had a few days time together. I did like both characters, but would've loved much more development in the relationship.

Again, rounding up from a 3.5. This was really cute. A bit of a geeky, yet confident heroine and a charming, sweet hero. A quick, fun little fantasy.

I'm a huge fan of author Diane Alberts and I love Entangled's Brazen imprint so of course I couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy of Temporarily Yours. This story is everything you'd expect from this author - hot and steamy with great characters and a believable romance and I absolutely devoured it.

It was ok, I didn't care for the writing, very predictable things to say. Predictable read.

Another things you could definitely tell the guy's POV is written by a female. It's just one of those things. Not as believable.

Don't get me wrong, it was a nice book. I would recommend it for an easy, steamy (but not as steamy as other brazen books) read.

Feb 09, 2014 Judy rated it it was amazing
This book was everything I look for in romance books. Wonderfully written, witty, steamy, great strong characters, meaningful, just a little dose of angst and a wonderful HEA. It's also fairly short but it included everything I wanted it to and I didn't want it to end. Yes, they are attracted to each other fairly quickly but I completely accepted it. I just loved this book.

ARC via NetGalley

Thank you, Entangled Brazen

Let me just say that the beginning of this book reminded me a lot of Jennifer Blackwood’s Landing the Air Marshal, also from Entangled Brazen. In both books, we have a heroine who’s terrified of flying (I can totally relate) and a hero who’s willing to help her through it with, let’s call it, unorthodox methods… meaning, a little bit of sexy times. Not complaining here.

But that’s where the similarities e

When I received the ARC for "Temporarily Yours," I was not expecting to receive it, and to be honest, it was a really pleasant surprise.
I opened the email with a huge smile and happiness, because I knew that, what I was about to read, I was going to be soaked by red clouds, in heart-shape, pouring MAD LOVE.

It was the most beautiful story I have ever read this year. An unexpected encounter with a hot marine, willing to help a Cinderella in distress. Honestly, who would g

This was a nice, steamy, rapid read about Kayla and Cooper meeting in an airport lounge and then becoming embroiled in a fake life very quickly.

With an immediate visual attraction between both parties, Cooper Schillings (an ex marine) finds himself next to the stunning Kayla Moriarity (an actuary), watching her tremble with her fear of flying. Small talk and distraction sees Kayla through the lounge wait

I'm not gonna sugarcoat - there isn't much that Diane can write that I won't love and this is one of them. Cooper was freaking sizzling off my pages and I couldn't turn the slow enough. Yes, I said slow enough. I read passages over and over, saying hot damn many, many times.

My Take on this Journey:

Temporarily Yours, by Diane Alberts was a fast paced, quick ride, with a sexy guy named Cooper Shillings, and an independent woman named, Kayla Moriarity. This book begins in the airport, while Kayla is waiting to board a plane to go to her younger sister's wedding. Kayla is not looking forward to the trip, because she know's her parents will be constantly harassing her about having a boyfriend. Kayla has it all thought out. She has a made up boyfriend, but no one she can
