Having recently bought a fixer upper she is in need of a good contractor. Just happens that her neighbor has a nephew that has a background in construction and what he does is restore old homes. So, even thought they are exact opposites she hires him. Then the fun begins. These two enter into an agreement, she needs a boyfriend and he needs a lawyer. Seems simple enough. Only thing, they have not figured in all the ways that their lie will effect their friends and family not to mention co-workers. There are some twist to the story as their feelings for each other start to grow.
This is a very entertaining story. I really enjoyed it. I definite recommend it. Good characters, good story line and a very good romance.
I was not paid for this review. I am not an author nor do I know one. I am not kin to this writer. I am a reader and this is just my opinion, nothing more, nothing less.
Kate is a lawyer who always plays by the rules. She still works with her ex, the guy she thought she would marry one day, and it is tough. Especially since he is now engaged to the gorgeous new lawyer at the firm. She is in line for a promotion, something she has been working her whole career for, the next step in her grand plan, only she needs a significant other. When the position is dangled in from of her she snaps and say she has a boyfriend. Only she doesn't. Not really.
Dominic is super sweet. Hot, nice, charming, everything you could want in a guy. He works for his father's construction business, but his real passion is restoration. He was going to school for architecture, but when his family needed him he dropped everything to be there for them. Only in doing so he lost his girlfriend as that was not the life she has envisioned. It put him off women a bit, but when he meets Kate there is a small spark. She is so straight laced and he thinks what would it be like to get her to loosen up a little bit?
When Kate needs some renovation work done, Dominic is her guy. Things just fall into place and when he finds out she needs a boyfriend for her firm events they figure out this will be perfect! He needs someone to help his sister with a messy divorce, but the sister won't take handouts. Only if Kate pretends to be his girlfriend then offer her legal services maybe she will take it and everyone wins. Dominic's sister gets help, Kate gets her promotion, everything should be wonderful.
Of course through all of this pretend dating they really fall for each other. Kate always thought she wanted her ex back, but now that things are heating up with Dominic does she really want that? Plus when things at work get a bit tricky she has some big decisions to make. These two were really cute together. They have some ups and downs, but it was a light, fun read.

Her Back-up Boyfriend by Ashlee Mallory is a sweet telling of the age old problem of loving the right person and being loved in return. The story, though predictable, is cute and well executed. However, a really good proofing of the text would help tremendously. I liked both Dominic and Kate. I liked their hearts, their sincerity and honesty. The supporting characters were also interesting and well defined. All in all this was a clean (no vulgar language or explicit sex) and enjoyable read.

True to its billing, this was a squeaky-clean read with few mild language instances but otherwise a very interesting read about two...Read more
