Fiancée for Hire (A Front and Center Novel) by Tawna Fenske
**I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review**
Solid 3 ½ stars!!
Once a Marine, always a Marine – that’s the life motto for former Marine MacArthur Patton. And when his private consultation for the government requires him to have a fiancée, Mac turns to his younger sister Sheri for help – which comes in the form of Sheri’s best-friend since childhood, Kelli Landers, who has had a serious case of lust for Mac, but to Mac she was just his kid sister’s friend and nothing more than that.
So when the two meet for a “strategy meeting”, Mac sees her for what she is – a beautiful, spunky, kick-ass woman. Their meeting inspires a mutual lust – but Mac is determined to keep their dealing strictly professional, while Kelli see this as her chance to finally fulfill her teenage fantasies with Mac. But when the danger starts to escalate, Mac worries about whether he will be able to keep Kelli safe enough – and be able to hold off all of the pent-up desire they both feel.
This was a great romance that had some deep subject matter at times, but it was necessary to explain where Mac and Kelli’s hearts are at through the whole process. And while I felt like it was a bit predicable, there were a few choice surprises that spiced up the book and made it an overall enjoyable read!
