Bethany needed a date to her 10 year high school reunion but doesn’t have the time or want to find one. She comes up with a plan to pay a guy up to 20,000 to be her fake boyfriend for the weekend.
Ransom is a hot guy, sitting alone at the small diner. He is pretty much minding his own business when Bethany propositions him to be her date for the reunion. But he doesn’t want her money... He wants access to the adoption agency’s database that she works for ,in order to get information. He doesn’t tell her why but she agrees.
While getting to know each other better, Bethany tells Ransom she has never had an orgasm. He is shocked but determined to change that.
The reunion has a couple bumps but for the most part they enjoy themselves. But as the time is nearing the end, neither one of them want to let each other go.
I received an ARC copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it
Ransom Jacobs, is looking for answers and will do whatever it takes to find the information he needs. As luck would have it, he stops at a local diner and ends up making a very unusual deal which will hopefully get him the information he is seeking.
It's a rather quick read that involves the lives of several classmates, some bad weather, and questionable decisions revolving around the class reunion. As for the woman who had achieved so much in business, I found her moral compass skewed on several topics...and the physical interaction between characters a bit too shallow. I received a reader copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. There was potential for a good story but it lost focus and never felt believable after the diner encounter.
This author must really like the name Bethany...
I wish I had paid more attention to the author's name before I agreed to read this book. This author's style of writing just doesn't do it for me. I feel like I was being told a story instead of feeling like I was there in the moment as it was happening. I didn't care for Bethany or Ransom in this story and the ending was super dry. All that build up just to continue dating? Just like a previous book I've read by this author, I just didn't feel like there was any actual romance between them. And I thought it was ridiculous that Ransom wasn't being completely honest about who he was and she still fell for him. Fell for who? Who is he? I don't think the author really answered those questions. Bethany was super annoying to me. Didn't like her from the very first chapter. She didn't seem very personable. This is will be the last Ciles novel I read for a while. Not too impressed...
Curiousity that took two forms. One, what lies ahead of them and will they pull it off; and two, the mystery that is Ransom. Who is this guy, what does he want, why does he want it and what will he do if he gets it? He is handsome and goes out of his way to help her but what motivates him to ask for a specific form of payment in return? Can he be trusted or will he betray her?
Bethany is a nice young woman, very successful in her career but comes off as a little naive with some things and then her character changes to being quite confident about aspects of her sex life. This is where I found it a little contradictory and confusing, on a few occassions. It was at these times that Ransom came across as a bit too opportunistic but by the end of the book the reader understands his behaviour better. The way Bethany viewed herself in comparison to her peers was a bit surprising but in hindsight, thinking about school reunions, generally, most people like to prove to their old classmates that their lives are so successful.
Bethany's education into having a rewarding sex life, teaches her, that it can most definitely, depend on the "talents" of a considerate partner. Quite educational and hot as hell!
I recommend this book, it was very entertaining and is well worth the time to read.
