“Tonight feels warmer than most. Rendering someone speechless leaves me speechless. He looks… enchanted.”
Ben is a hard-working guy with his own business. He could use some more income, but he’s doing fine and he likes his work. When a client approaches him for something totally different, Ben suddenly finds himself in some surprising situations, but he enjoys the perks of his new side job as an escort. When he’s hired as a ‘fiancé’ by a dumped woman it’s a different gig for a change, and it doesn’t take long before he starts to see more in Miryam.
Miryam thought she had her life planned out; the right study, the right job and the right fiancé. Until he dumps her for his assistant, leaving Miryam to deal with the mess. Getting dumped is bad, but Miryam is more ‘afraid’ for the reaction of her family, especially her meddling grandmother. So, she and her friends come up with the brilliant idea to hire a guy the play her fiancé, to postpone the news a bit. Ben is perfect for the job, and soon Miryam starts to see him in a different way.
“I want to kiss you again, but I’m scared to. Are you going to hit me?” “No. I promise not to hit you.”
Accidental Manwhore is a standalone book, and told in a double POV. The first part of the book is mostly form Ben’s POV, telling about his daily life, and his sudden side job as an escort. Like other books by this author this story is easy to read; no flowery monologues or deep inner thoughts, just an entertaining story about real-life issues.
I love Miryam and Ben. Not only as a couple, but also as individuals. I felt sorry for Miryam, her ex really hurt her feelings, but I didn’t understand why she wanted to hide it for her family. Well, that was until they got into the picture. I probably would have done the same. Ben Ben Ben… He’s a good guy but he is a wee bit naive in the beginning. My only issue with Accidental Manwhore is that it takes some time before Ben and Miryam meet, and even longer before they become a couple. We see Ben in action (totally hot) throughout the book , but I wanted more of him and Miryam.
“Did you just say you loved me while we’re sitting in a police interrogation room?” She laughs. It’s a sound I’m certain I’ll never get tired of.”
I’ve enjoyed reading Accidental Manwhore, I give this story 4 stars.
Ben works watering plants in an office building. He started this company not that long ago and makes enough to live, but is not making a ton of money. Some of his clients are a bit scary in how strong their personalities are, but he is a good guy and gets his work done.
Miryam is getting married. To the perfect guy. They both are attorneys, they both know what they want, it is going to be great. Maybe not a grand, passionate relationship, but perfect for what she wants.
When Ben's dad is diagnosed with cancer he will do almost anything to get the money to pay for his treatment. So he tries to get some more plant watering business, but his boss at the office building has another idea. Just go to some parties and keep the ladies happy. Easy peasy. And it pays a lot more than Ben could hope to make in an evening doing anything else. So of course he agrees. Oh, he was so adorable. He doesn't realize what is going on until he is in it. He was so much fun.
Miryam thought her fiance was perfect, only to find out that he doesn't actually want to marry her. Right before the wedding. So now she will have to tell her grandmother, the person closest to her whose health is not the best, that she is not getting married. Her grandmother will be devastated so what will she do? Hire someone to play her fiance of course. Only Ben is that someone and they have had a run in before. But desperate times call for desperate measures. Now I will say I really didn't like Miryam for most of the story. She was soooo judgemental and awful! I was yelling at her a lot in my head while reading her parts. She thinks she knows Ben when she doesn't know anything. And she treats him not so good because of what she thinks she knows of him and ah! I didn't like her. But I still enjoyed reading her. Which is odd.
Through all of this, through being a fake fiance and spending time together, these two grew closer. Oh I enjoyed this story. It was fun. Ben and Miryam and everything they go through. I so enjoyed reading thier story.
