Nadine is hosting her sister’s bachelorette party at her home. When the male strippers show up, she sneaks into the living room to see what is going on. But when the men take their clothes off and the oil comes out, she heads back into the kitchen. When Ethan heads into the kitchen to cool off a bit, him and Nadine chat while she invites him to have a snack.
Shortly after, Nadine finds out that there is a work retreat coming up and she needs to bring a significant other with her. But the problem is, she doesn’t have one. But with a potential promotion on the line, she needs to find someone. While she has a guy she normally brings to these types of events, she knows that he will not work in this occasion. She calls the agency that she hired Ethan through to see if she can hire him for the weekend.
Before the retreat, Ethan and Nadine get together to work out all the details. But when they actually arrive at the hotel, and realize that they need to act like they are in love, and that they have to share a hotel room, they are not sure if this will really work. Can they make Nadine’s coworkers believe that they are truly a couple and in love? Will Nadine end up with the promotion she wants?
I enjoyed this book and the concept. It’s interesting to see how Ethan and Nadine interact and how she brings forward her conceptions of what she thinks Ethan’s job truly means.
