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 ...

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 distress and

3.5 Stars! I want to make Cooper mine...permanently!!

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.

3.5 Stay With Me Stars!

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

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. So after a bit of flirting Cooper finds himself upgrading his ticket to first class so he is able to enjoy his flight to North Carolina s

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 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.
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.

When Kayla and Cooper meet at an airport lounge their attraction is instant even though neither of them is looking for anything serious. Kayla is a nervous flyer and Cooper has a bit of a thing for
Very sexy and very sweet!
I'm a huge fan of grand gestures and Cooper's is up there with my favourites! : )

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.

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.
4.5 stars - ARC PROVIDED.

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

3.5 (70% worth of) stars

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've read a bunch of veteran love stories this year--men suffering PTSD coping in bad ways, men adjusting to prosthetic limbs being afraid to commit--and so I wasn't really sure what I'd get with this book.

I'm SO glad it was fantastic.

Sure, Cooper Shillings has a guilt complex that's driving him back to the frontline--this time as private security not as a combatant--but he's setting all his emotional baggage aside for the weekend. This stunning gal he met at the airport is worth a bit

Stand alone at this time, first book in a series I believe.

Another winner from Entangled Brazen. Several things I loved about this book.

Heroine, Kayla, was an actuary. Think it is the first time ever in a romance that I've read for that job profession. Made it fun with all the "statistics" that popped up in conversation.

Kayla has had sex before! Oh my word, even "flings" - I'm starting a shelf for heroines who have had a normal sex life prior to

This is my first Diane Alberts book, and I wasn't impressed to be honest. I hope it's just a fluke though, because she did write Try Me and it's been on my Must-Read list for quite some time. So, with that out of the way, lets get started...

I'm going to go ahead and get this out of the way, just because I'm feeling a bit nit-picky tonight. The blurb is somewhat misleading. While Kayla and Cooper do join the Mile High club (somewhat), they don't meet on the airplane because their seats are next t

I really liked Temporarily Yours. Dianne has managed to write about two characters you will immediately fall in love with.

Kayla Moriarity and Cooper Shillings both have some family issues. Kayla is tired of her family consistently pushing for her to get married and/or have a man in her life. Cooper is battling his own demons of watching his best friend die and not saving his life. Cooper is also dealing with the disappointment that his father has

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.
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Cooper and Kayla! Diane Alberts had me hooked with her sweet, hot, sexy, romantic story TEMPORARILY YOURS right from the start of this book and I enjoyed every single word! Ms. Alberts is a new to me author and OMG did she make a fan out of me!

Let’s start with the adorable, sexy, smokin’ hot, ex-Marine that is Cooper Shillings. He is not just dreamy, but a good guy who stepped right up to be by Kayla’s side and help her. Cooper is one of those guys who just has natural born h

I'm not a big fan of numbers. In fact, we don't get along at all. But Kayla Moriarity is a whiz kid with numbers, and I actually kind of loved her tendency to spout random statistics (I wonder how many of those were real and which were just made up for the book). She was so cute and adorable with her rambling/babbling before the flight. It's no wonder Cooper Shillings fell for her. Or at least wanted to help her with her fear. And of course, he's got a damsel in distress thing and she happens to ...more

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

I loved this book so much it hurts!

I loved how 'insecure' Cooper is, yet so confident at the same time and I loved how simple and relatable Kayla's attitude is. She's just adorable and even I loved her. I rarely loved heroine but this one, I adore her.

Cooper and Kayle stumbled upon each other at airport, Cooper's sweater got stained by kid and Kayla's afraid of flying. The attraction is so irresistible, Cooper found himself upgrading his seat next to Kayla's. They hit it off and Cooper agrees
Pretty good overall. Better than some of the others I've read.

I really enjoyed Cooper and Kayla's 'fake' relationship. They really matched well to each other and saw what really mattered.

Both felt like disappointments to their families and I liked how they could easily fix the problem for the other, but couldn't see it for themselves. Of course in the end, they had to face those very things in order to find happiness.

I think the short lengths really hold these books back, but for .99 cents th
3.5 "forever yours" stars...

This book was...meh! Nothing to really write home about!


If you're looking for something short & sweet, then this is the book for you!


I didn't not like this book, I just didn't love it! I like the premise behind the story, just didn't feel like I was able to connect to the characters all that well. It was a well written story, I did like the authors writing style, and I found the story flowed very easily. Again, I did enjoy reading this one, it was just missing so
