Book Review - Her Backup Boyfriend by Ashlee Mallory
ABOUT THE BOOK
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
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...
Well written story with characters who had remarkable chemistry. Watching these characters fall in love felt natural and simple, even if the circumstances outside of their feelings were anything but simple. Dominic is a great balanced character who is sensitive enough to be believable while still being a strong male, while Kate is a driven woman with a soft edge. I’ve seen this story done where the characters are stereotypes based on the occupation, and Ashley Mallory does a wonderful job of creating well rounded characters that were easy to root for and fall in love with.
OVERALL RATING - 4.5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - Not too much steam, but lots of chemistry
