When Noelle hires an escort to accompany her to a charity event, it’s merely to show her ex that’s she’s moved on. Yet she gets more than she bargained for when Dane is assigned to accompany her. Tall, dark, and handsome, he knows how to arouse jealousy. He also knows how to arouse her!

{ review } .

You know how sometimes I say "I found a review that I was working on and never finished it"?

...yeah, the book that this one 'belongs in', COURTING TROUBLE, is one of those books. I really enjoyed COURTING TROUBLE, so I promise to get you the full-out review at some point in my busy life (I'd do it now, but after I sling this baby out, I'm headed to bed -- I've been up for 20 hours and need my sleep).

This novella is an extremely short (and I put an extreme emphasis on extremely) novella that essentially takes place in the span of 30 minutes (yes, Dane, I'm giving you some time, but we all know guys don't need that much time...).

Noelle hires an escort to make her ex jealous as an event. She doesn't expect to be ridiculously attracted to the man. He plays his part well... almost too well.

The thing is, Dane is attracted to Noelle, too. He doesn't date clients, he doesn't sleep with clients, but he wants to make a brief exception for Noelle.

The only part that had me really rolling my eyes was the whole forgetting her ex's name thing. But...

While reading, I'd like to add, I rolled my eyes often at the quickness of the emotion. Obviously it's going to move fast -- but seriously, in that time frame? But after I put it down, I sat back and reflected.

This little blurb of a book takes place during a minute part of the prologue of COURTING TROUBLE. Noelle and Dane aren't even secondary characters in TROUBLE -- but Sienna, although not named, makes her appearance (I even went back to TROUBLE to see if she ran into this couple in the prologue).

So while it was short and a bit unbelievable, the lines a tad corny...

I forgave it because it was like a side-flash in a soap opera.

Forgiveness given.
