Book Description

This marine's the perfect hoax...if she doesn't fall for him first.
Stats whiz Kayla Moriarity knows her way around numbers and algorithms. Men, on the other hand, are unsolvable equations. Now Kayla's en route to her sister's wedding--without the fictional boyfriend she invented for her family. Fortunately, her plane comes complete with complimentary cocktails and a ridiculously hot ex-marine in the seat beside her. And that's all it takes for Kayla's inhibitions to go sailing out the airlock...

Cooper Shillings has soft spot for people in trouble, but he certainly wasn't expecting to land in it himself--and definitely not while getting naughty mid-air with a sexy southern belle. When he hears Kayla's predicament, however, he offers his services as a stand-in boyfriend. After all, he's heading overseas soon...and how could he refuse a little no-strings wickedness?
It's the perfect plan. And all Kayla has to do is ensure her family falls for the ultimate bluff, without falling for it--and Cooper--in the process...

"I will definitely be reading more Diane Albert and Jen McLaughlin books if they're as sexy as this one. Which I am totally sure they are. *goes to freeze some ice cubes*"--Kati, Romancing the Rakes
----
"Like all Brazen books, Temporarily Yours has a high heat factor, but Diane Alberts particularly excels at encounters between the sheets (or on an airplane, the back seat of a car, etc.), seamlessly blending them into the narrative to deepen the romantic connection between Cooper and Kayla."--Yvette Cervera
----
"I loved this story!! It was super sexy, sweet and just perfect! Everything I look for in a Brazen!"--Allison Riviera
----
"Temporarily Yours is another fantastic example of why I love Diane Alberts. She knows how to write sexy, steamy scenes with laugh out loud moments mixed in."--Candace Fleming

From the very first chapter until the very last word, author Diane Alberts had me entranced with this often hilarious, insightful, wonderful, and extremely sexy story that basically takes place over a weekend between two strangers. Odd thing is that within minutes of them meeting, as a reader, I could feel their connection and couldn’t wait to read more.

This is one of those books that writing a review for it is hard because I truly loved this story so much. It wasn’t typical; they meet by chance, have an instant connection, enjoy some wild moments on a flight, and end up agreeing to a short fling before he leaves for a new work assignment overseas. Cooper Shillings and Kayla Moriarity were such an engaging couple; I loved their interactions and their odd little internal thoughts about one another. It was such a breath of fresh air for two people to not stress over the amount of time they knew each other and just enjoyed the time they had together. Both have family issues which only makes their bond stronger.

These two have a lot and I do mean a lot of hot, steamy, sexy fun because they know they have a limited time with one another. Holy smokes they burn up many surfaces and indulge in some public play as well. They are totally uninhibited with one another and it is quite refreshing. They also spend quite a bit of time learning about one another which was equally entertaining and to them a little bit scary as they find themselves sharing things with one another they’ve never shared with anyone else in their past.
I loved that there wasn’t really a big blowup between Cooper and Kayla; there was a moment of panic, followed by some eye-opening clarity, followed by one hell of a grand gesture. Temporarily Yours is one of those books that is guaranteed to make you smile, rev you up, and make you glad you are a lover of this genre!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome in ways I didn't expect February 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't know what I expected going into this one. I've read several of Diane's novellas, and have always been a fan of her writing. But with this being her first Brazen, and with it being longer in length, obviously, than the novellas, I wasn't sure. Some authors are more geared towards shorter than longer, and while this one is on the short end even for Brazen, something in me just had reservations in ways I can't explain. But I was completely blown away.

The opening scene with Cooper and Kayla meeting was hilarious, with this quiet little wit about it that reeled me right in. Then for this gruff, sort of grumpy man to become so unexpectedly concerned about this stranger so clearly afraid of flying, and to split second decide to drop several hundred bucks to upgrade his seat to first class, so he can sit with her, tugged at my heart. Their chemistry is explosive, and I would so love a flight occupied in the ways Cooper provides. Hello hotness. And what should've ended when the plane landed, somehow led to more, fueled by their chemistry and desire for each other. Wake up the next morning, and somehow Cooper is her boyfriend everyone at home thinks isn't real, and things just progress from there.

Fake relationships are always so much fun to read, and Diane does an awesome job building this one in a completely believable way. Yes, this pair falls hard in basically 2 nights. And something in me said it was fast, from complete stranger to more and yet... I so bought it. I felt the connection between these two, and I've always felt like sometimes, that right person just comes into your life at the very right time and yes, leads to things moving fast. I don't doubt the connection and depth of emotion between this pair.

Temporarily Yours by Diane Alberts
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book read hot from the first Chapter! I can guarantee that absolutely no one would mind the hassle of flying if there flight was anything like Kayla Moriarity's. Cooper Shillings, ex marine, can't seem to stop himself from helping people and when he meets Kayla in the airport he immediately can't seem to stay away from her. Kayla's endless babbling that includes statistical data from everything from relationship survival ratings to the percentage of people who die in flight vs. on the runaway are absolutely refreshing to Cooper. He can't remember the last time he was this intrigued with another person let alone a woman. Kayla's fear of flying soon leads to Cooper paying to upgrade to first class to sit beside her. Needless to say, what happens next definitely changes the way you look at taking flights. It was so hot my cheeks were burning while I read it.

What starts out as a mind blowing one night stand quickly changes to Cooper escorting Kayla to her sister's wedding as a "pretend" boyfriend. Kayla and Cooper agree to keep the relationship just physical and fun but before long they are both in over their heads. These two needed each other to realize that they are both running from problems instead of facing them. And maybe just maybe they are misjudging the people who love them the most. Sometimes honesty is the best policy and having a little faith that your loved ones want what is best for you even when it doesn't seem that way.

Temporarily Yours is another fantastic example of why I love Diane Alberts. She writes storylines and characters that you not only identify with but fall in love with. She knows how to write sexy, steamy scenes with laugh out loud moments mixed in. This is another winner! Read it soon!
