The first time I lay eyes on Callan Walker, I know he'll be trouble. With his smug grin, hot Aussie accent, and thousand-dollar shoes, he's just the kind of rich guy who always gets what he wants. And he wants two things: a night of sin, and my cooperation as he outmaneuvers his powerful mother to take control of his uncle's estate.
I can't afford either one. I'm the only thing standing between my little sister and the foster care system.
He may have money and charm on his side, but I have something even more powerful - pure desperation. This temp job at his mother's company can become a full time job for me. It has to. But when Callan's eyes rake over my body, sometimes I forget my obligations. His piercing gaze finds the fun, optimistic girl I used to be and not the tired person I've become.
And it works - if only for a moment. Our night together was a mistake. I can't afford to get sucked into his high-powered family's treachery. But the closer I get to Callan, the more layers I find beneath those expensive clothes. Though I can't forget this is temporary. He's temporary. I have too much to lose. Too bad my foolish heart didn't get the memo....

A surprisingly sweet romance
This was an unexpected pleasure. Yes, it has the heightened realism of a romance novel - gorgeous millionaire playboy etc and there are a few plot points I quibble over (at one point said playboy doesn't seem to have ready funds available which seems a bit implausible given the champagne and jet setting lifestyle) - however, this novel also has more heart and plot than many of the genre. A real highlight for me is that THANK CRUNCHIE, audible as actually chosen readers who can do Australian accents! The book is well written, well read moving and fun.

This Is Going To Be Among My Best Books!!
This is a keeper! This story has a lot of twists and turns and I loved it. 💜💖 You have Grace, who is trying her best to make a living and raising her 15 year old sister. And then there is Callan from Australia, who comes from a cold loveless wealthy family. It’s a great read that once you start you don’t want to stop. As usual, Shane East gives a wonderful performance with an Australian accent. He is also very powerful in scenes where Callan is dealing with his anger, emotions, due to his dysfunctional family. You feel for both Grace and Callan. It’s a lovely story. If I’m not mistaken there will be a second book that continues their story. This book is worth getting.

2 words... Callan Walker!
Any time Shane East is narrating it is a one click for me, so when I started listening to this book by two authors I had yet to listen to I did not know what to expect. That being said, I was hooked from the first page. Loved the dual POV. The characters were well developed and relatable. Plus who doesn't like a hot Australian hunk with heart like Callan Walker! This was my first book by these authors but definitely won't be my last.
