Sam Crescent launches a successful hostile heart takeover with this swift and sexy read. Rafe Shawl knows what he wants and will stop at nothing from getting it and the moment he decides Ellis Johnson is his I knew we were both in for the adventure of a lifetime. As a klutz who’s had my share of accidents I totally felt for Ellis when her interview is ruined by Rafe’s hot coffee and even hotter smile. I love that his offer is like a modern day fairytale. It’s almost too good to be true and watching as she soon discovers that everything just seems to get better for her is wonderful. But I also liked how things weren’t perfect for either of them. It wasn’t as easy as snapping his fingers and getting everything his own way and just because she didn’t have to worry about money it didn’t leave her without her hardships. I liked watching the relationship develop and delving in to Rafe’s characters. I’m never disappointed when I pick up one of this author’s books and this story was no exception. It had all the elements I’ve come to expect and love; a powerful alpha male, a curvy heroine and a sexy situation that always leads to happily ever after. Do yourself a favour, pick this one up.
The Story: Rafe Shawl will do just about anything to gain control of his father’s company. Because of some tricky clauses he will have to tread very carefully. Ellis Johnson needs a job and she never expected she’d take one as a wife. As their relationship turns from strictly business, Ellis discovers Rafe hasn’t just bought a bride for half a decade but that he needs an heir as well.
Rafe Shawl needs a wife. In order to inherit his father’s company, he has to be married, and the moment he bumps into Ellis Johnson, spilling coffee down her, he knows she’s the perfect woman for the job.
Covered in coffee, Ellis knows there’s no way she’s going to get the job that she’d been about to be interviewed for—but the guy who’d just done the damage is offering to pay her a million dollars just to have coffee with him. She can’t refuse, especially when she realizes his offer is legit—one coffee and then becoming his wife.
Ellis sees no other alternative, so she agrees to be his wife, and help him win back his father’s company. Five years, that’s all she has to do. Five years, pretending to be in love with him.
But five years will never be enough when she’s really fallen in love with him.
But what will happen when she finds out that he lied to her? Not only does she have to give him five years, but he also needs an heir…
