Divorced Mother of 3, makes a deal with a wealthy good-looking politician to pretend to be his girlfriend until after the primary election. Has some very funny sections, and some warm steamy love scenes. Reminds you of the movie "Pretty Woman"

Very fast-paced romantic story. I felt that the plot was different enough to keep me interested and predictable enough that it read like a typical romance novel. The characters are very likable and people that you can relate to. A few times I even saw my own life or my family's lives reflected in scenes and attributes of the characters. Susan Donovan has a unique voice - I can't wait to read more of her!

This is a quick read page turner! I literally read it in two days because it was so good! It was fun and entertaining, yet romantic.

Jack is bad boy turned Romantic, while Samantha isnt needing saving, but definitely needing someone to put her first for once.

I didn't think I would like this book but I gave it a chance because I really liked Donovan's other books. I enjoyed it. It was a quick easy read. The characters are fun with great back story.

I didn't like the way the deal was leaked. I didn't quite buy it would happen given the characters involved but otherwise it was a good book. I agree with the other review that it reminded me of a single moms version of "Pretty Women."
