Review: Her Backup Boyfriend by Ashlee Mallory

Her Backup Boyfriend

Synopsis

One little white lie leads to more than she planned… 

Straight-laced lawyer Kate Matthews always plays by the rules. But when her ex gets engaged and a big promotion is on the line at work, she blurts out that she has a new boyfriend. And now that she's proved she “has a life” outside of work, everything is perfect. Except for one teeny little detail―there is no boyfriend. And now Kate's liable for her little white lie... 

Dominic Sorensen is hot, charming, and very definitely not Kate's type. But not only does Dominic want to help Kate renovate her home, he's also willing to play “boyfriend.” All he wants in return is a little pro bono work for his sister. Now instead of Mr. Right, Kate has a delectable Mr. Fix-It-Right―and some unbelievable sexual chemistry. And if falling for Dominic is a breach of contract, Kate is guilty as charged...
5-Stars Review

It is a heart warming romantic novel. Kate and Dominic are both likable. It written in way that keeps readers interested throughout the book. Kate has still not gotten over her ex, who also happens to be her co-worker. When she finds out that he is now engaged to a "perfect" girl who is nothing like Kate, she is feeling quite bad about herself. Dominic is her neighbour's nephew. He is helping her with renvations. But then circumstances made them to struck a deal... pretend to be in love with each other so that Kate can get that promotion she has always wanted and Dominic can get his sister's life sorted out (with Kate's help that is). As always with these kind of stories, things don't go the way they envisioned and soon their lie becomes the truth.Now its up to them to convince themselves that they can make it work....
