Temporary Boyfriend by Shanora Williams
Release Date: November 9th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Piper Madison can only think of one way to get her parents to accept her: hire a temporary boyfriend.
She hires Matthew Cooper, a hot, tall, and wickedly handsome male escort with a set of dimples and charm that will bring any woman to her knees.
He assures Piper they will prove her family wrong - that she doesn’t need to be married to some billionaire in order to be happy - and that it will remain strictly business between them.
But when their strictly business relationship starts to feel a little too real, Piper and Matthew realize hearts are on the line, and that they may be in for much more than they bargained for.
Excerpt:PIPER - I shut off the water but before I can put my toothbrush away, Matthew is standing behind me, pressing his body against me. His groin pushes into my ass and I realize that through that towel, he’s hard. I look at his reflection in the mirror. “What are you doing?” I laugh softly. “Saying good morning the way a real boyfriend would.” He kisses the crook of my neck and I nearly melt inside. The heat travels down, building up in my most sacred area. I drop my toothbrush and turn in his arms, looking up to meet his honey eyes. “Wait—” I press a hand against his chest. “I thought you said this shouldn’t happen anymore.” I point between us, confused. “I know I got carried away last night.” “I liked it. Probably a little too much,” he murmurs on my lips. “I bet you did.” “Maybe what I meant is this shouldn’t happen…much.” My eyes widen, and I bite my lower lip, fighting a grin. “You’re serious right now, aren’t you?” He responds with a kiss on my cheek and a gentle push of his hard cock into my groin. “But isn’t that breaking all of your ‘escort’ rules?” I make air parentheses with my fingers. “Possibly…” “God, you are so confusing,” I whisper, our lips a hair’s breadth away. “Trust me, I’m confused as fuck about you too.” He looks me over, his tongue running over his bottom lip. “You want to know what I’ve been thinking about all morning?” He grips my waist and picks me up. My butt lands on the counter, and he steps between my parted legs with a smirk on his lips. “What?” “I keep thinking that what happened last night wasn’t nearly enough.” He studies my lips. “The way you rode my c*ck, how tight and wet you were. I need more, Piper. A lot more. I know we only have about twenty-five minutes, but,” he sighs, pulling my shorts down and tossing them in the corner. He takes my shirt off next. “I’ll be quick.” His lips land on the bend of my neck again, and he sucks, causing a tingling sensation to shoot through my legs and hit me right in the core. “I promise.”
This is my first book by Shanora Williams and it definitely won't be my last. You can't tell from the cover, but this was the perfect book to get me into the holiday mood. It follows Piper who has to travel home for Christmas to see her family. She has always been the black sheep in the family by not falling into what her parent's expected her to do. She didn't end up becoming a doctor like they wanted. Instead, she found a happy career as a editor. She also didn't marry someone super rich like they expected either. With how busy her job is, she finds it hard to date. But this holiday season, she finds herself hiring an escort to pretend to be her boyfriend to please her parents. It starts off innocent enough with Matthew coming along with her, but they both find themselves crossing the line between clients. They are sharing with each other more than they ever expected and are definitely attracted to one another. I wasn't sure how to feel because he was an escort, but Matthew makes it clear that he does not include "sex" with his clients. You can see Piper slowly growing on him, and even though he had a particular facade to keep up, it was nice to learn about him slowly. He was just so lovely and despite it being a job, he was genuinely a good person offering Piper support when she needed it. Piper's family was definitely a handful and you can totally see why Piper did what she did. The truth would only have her family meddling more. Even though it felt like insta-love (it was only a weekend that Matthew had to pretend), I really loved how they came together and the build up of their relationship. I really liked also how they decided to come clean about everything and how accepting her family was. Overall, this was a super cute holiday romance with a lovely HEA. Perfect read to prepare for Christmas holidays!
