I don't like being mean, but seriously this book was a joke. Yes, it was a free novella, I appreciate that and all, but it was a waste of my time. I can't stand insta love, but if the story is good enough I can get over that. But this wasn't even a good story. I'm very disappointed. :/
I thought it would be a pleasant chick-lit kind of story, like the old movies I watch on my tv at times. But this was just bad. I didn't like the writing, the fast forward scenes, just to ...more
Such a waste of a good cover art. Both this and The Sheik's Intimate Proposition.
What I didn't like
1) She wasn't even remotely afraid of her boss
2) Story went on too fast (well, it's a short story after all)
3) Insta-love. Over the weekend, really? Bahh
What I like
1) The feisty heroine
The overall story that the 'tycoon' has told his sister that he's getting married, to stop her worrying, and needs a 'fake-financee' to show was a nice idea.
The story moves along at a reasonable rate.
Unfortunately the end completely lets it down.
----- Spoilers -----------

This particular story was no different of course! I enjoyed it very much i just wish the ending was a bit different because it seemed a little bit unrealistic. (view spoiler)[ Even though Miranda declared that their en ...more

I loved the banter between Royston, and Miranda. Just the way the two interacted with one another made this a fun read. Royston had just found his sister after years of not knowing where she was. He loved his sister, and would do anything to make her happy. The only thing his sister wanted, was to see Royston happy. To her that meant in a relationship. Royston needed a fake fiancé, and fast. He needed one before having diner wit ...more
You knew because of the length of the story the love between the couple was going to be POW, and it wasn't bad... I enjoyed how they started off by giving you the idea that the main couple disliked each other and then as they got to know each other they found love.
But the reason behind Royston's lying and needing ...more

Easy and Quick read.
Hello again, Tamar.
I'd ask if you'd kidnapped any other naked women, but this book takes place directly after your story, so you wouldn't have had any time.
Wyndi finally gets to meet up with her long-lost brother, Royston, who had been told by the foster care system that Wyndi was dead, because he wouldn't stop running away to try to find her to take care of her. He doesn't believe her at first, until she tells him things that ...more

Here is the write-up from Amazon:
It’s wonderful to be engaged! Or at least it would be if he actually had a fiancée…
Royston is reunited with his sister at last – and she’s married and expecting! He is thrilled, but so caught off guard when she questions him about his love life that he makes up a story about a non-existent fiancée, just to protect her gentle heart. N ...more
This was so bad.
Summary: Rich alpha male's sister believes the only way you can be happy is if you're getting married. So, when she confronts her brother, Royston, about being happy, instead of saying that he's dating someone, or that he's still trying to find this special someone, he tells her he's engaged.
BUT, GUESS WHAT? He's not. And he's not dating.
So, Miranda, one of his employees comes into his office, and he's like "hey, I make a lot of money, do you want to be ...more
There was a story here and it could have been something great but it wasn't particularly engaging. I had hoped for more substance even with the length of the "book" but there were too many holes and not enough story development. However, there is a potentially great little weekend romance story here but the author just missed the mark by skipping over all of the important relationship building dates and conversations that I assumed the character had during those long car rides out of ...more
