From New York Times bestselling author Krista Lakes comes a sexy standalone novel about a billionaire and the indecent proposal he gives the local barista.

Billionaire CEO Jackson Weathers needs a family for a PR boost, and I've signed a contract agreeing to give him one. A doting girlfriend in public. A wedding ceremony to invite all the socialites to. And finally, a baby for him to parade around, to show he's really a wholesome, down-to-Earth man.

I've tried to remain cynical about it. He's going to make all my dreams come true. So what if it's supposed to be a loveless marriage?

Only, his tenderness in private has me hooked. The way he kisses me drives me wild. When we make love, I lose myself to him. His body feels like it was meant to be on top of mine, like we fit together like two puzzle pieces. I can't help but begin to fall for him.

I can't tell him, or I risk losing everything. And nobody else can find out about our little "arrangement" or it will destroy his reputation. Still, I feel like I have to know how he feels, before the marriage, before the baby, before I give my entire life over to him.

Is it still just pretend?

When Jackson meets Emma he is overwhelmed with the feelings that he has for her. But Emma is 'merely' a barista whilst he is a multi billionaire so why would he be really interested in her? With her low esteem she doesn't think that he is sincere about any real feeling for her but when he asks for her help to give him the 'perfect' family man look of a doting wife and baby to help his image and that of his business she agrees. But she really does love him. Can these two really get their HEA or is all just business? I loved Jackson and Emma and read this virtually in one go [okay I feel asleep - it was late at night] as it is so well written and they both seemed to be so real. I like Krista Lakes writing style as she really knows how to draw you into her stories and to actually like her characters. I look forward to her next book in the series. Definitely recommended

This book is fantastic and brilliantly written! It is incredibly descriptive, funny, and the ideas are well-developed. The plot is relatable, consistent, and there is a great pace from scene to scene. Great storyline with interesting characters who are sweet and a perfect fit for each other … the chemistry between them is hot and off the charts. A really enjoyable fast pace read with some exciting and interesting twists; and I take great pleasure in recommending it.

Yep. This will probably always be one of my favorite themes no matter how many times or how many different ways I get to read it. Because I know that what starts out as a fake relationship isn’t going to stay that way for long and that “fake” is going to come back and bite them in the butt. I loved seeing the instant spark between Jackson and Emma. And I think that spark just about shorted out my reader, it’s so intense. The slightly sarcastic banter between them is probably my favorite thing in the whole book. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book.

Jackson Weathers is a billionaire and CEO with a big problem. His womanizing ways are beginning to backfire causing the stock of his baby company to drop. His PR person was doing a good job until his las escapade made big headlines. To save his company she told him he needed to marry and have a baby with someone that the public would believe in. Emma is a barista that serves him is coffee every morning and the only woman that he believed fit the bill to be the wife and mother. Now all he has to do is convince her to do the job. Emma is already half way there with her feelings for him but marrying and having his child is a big decision and responsibility. Can she leave her feelings out of the contract and do it or will her heart suffer? I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

So sweet, and sexy! This was a charming, beautifully written, fast paced read that had a lot of heart, and the perfect amount of heat. Krista Lakes’ talent for combining sexy scenes with genuinely moving romance ensures that the story is as intense and sensual as it is emotional. I loved Emma and Jackson, flirty, banter as friends as they connect in the coffee shop. They had a great attraction and pull to one another. But when Jackson asks Emma out, I like how Emma tries to be cautious but open, but inside is seriously flipping out, since she has had a crush on him since she has met him. Jackson was so, so, sweet. Even when Emma accepts the contract, Jackson pulls out all the stops, really wooing her and that made me melt. I thought he would be this player of a man, but he was such a likable character. I loved their flirting and their amazing chemistry and a seriously great connection. Entertaining, sexy and oh so sweet! Another Krista Lakes book that leaves a smile on my face and my heart happy. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The well written storyline and the well defined characters grabbed my attention from the very first page and I remained totally enthralled until the turn of the very last page!

Author, Krista Lakes has written a modern love story about Jackson the billionaire who wants to salvage his reputation by entering into a marriage of convenience to Emma the barrister. However, what's different in this story is that Jackson never comes across as cold as some billionaire's do in similar storylines which I found refreshing. These two people really liked each other. Of course there was a weasel of an antagonist stirring things up to test the relationship. I liked this story and am recommending this book. The storyline was well developed and the chapters flowed effortlessly. (Note: I am volunteering to leave a review of this ARC book.)

Jackson is simply swoon worthy. Playboy turned devoted husband and father. What is better then that? Coffee girl turned billionaires wife with still the morals of us common folk. This book is a definite must read. I loved every page.
