Having to attend my sister’s wedding with a pretend boyfriend had been bad enough, but when that fake date left me stranded an hour before the ceremony, I thought my life was over. No one wore disappointment as poorly as my mother, and I’d already given her a thousand reasons to wish I’d never been born.

Which was why, when a random stranger sat beside me at the bus stop, wearing a crisp suit and a winning smile as though God himself had heard my woeful prayers, I wasted no time in making a rushed deal with the devil:
A night of his time in exchange for money I didn’t have.

It sounded so simple. It sounded easy… if only cash had been what Fraser Scott wanted at the end of the night. A man like him, with his intense grey eyes, hard muscles, and obvious charm didn’t need his wallet filling. He didn’t need anything I was willing to offer freely.

By the time it was all over, what Fraser demanded, in fact, was me…

And it turned out that Fraser wasn’t the kind of man who walked away from a deal without coming out on top.


I don’t know what I expected with this story, but it was SO much more! I thought I wasn’t going to be able to like Fraser but he definitely won me over! He was growly but still sweet.

And Charlotte – not Lottie – you just feel so bad for her. She’s obviously the “black sheep” in her family, and she knows it. She knows her mother wishes she was more “socially acceptable” and does what is expected of her, just like her sister. And hence why she has a standing wedding date who has to bail on her, but then it brought Fraser into her life. Hot or not, I’d still be so wary of how coincidental it all seemed to be, but maybe that’s too much Criminal Minds reruns.

Fraser is definitely the protection Charlotte needs against her family. Without even knowing Charlotte, he’s already annoyed with how her family treats her. But even though he stands up for her, you just don’t know if she will forgive him for his omissions.

5 stars!
