Penny Robertson just wanted to get through the events leading to her sister's wedding with as little drama as possible. Smile until it hurt, avoid questions about her lack of someone special, then put it all in the rearview.

She wasn't counting on traipsing to The Red Door Club--or meeting the drop-your-panties sexy businessman, Xander Wade. Xander has a proposition for her: if she agrees to pretend she's his girlfriend for a month, he'll go with her to the wedding...and pay her twenty thousand dollars.
It seems like easy money; a business arrangement that benefits them both, but she wasn't counting on falling for him.

Xander Wade works hard and plays even harder. CEO of a cutthroat investment firm, his philosophy on romance is no strings attached.

When his ailing father threatens to boot him from the company if he doesn't settle down, Xander makes a choice to play the game. He'll pretend he's the marrying type for a month, then go back to the jet set life. No complications. No love.

He wasn't betting on Penny. A month seemed like a breeze before her. Now, a month isn't long enough...

This is the first book in the Falling For You Series by Ava Claire.

    This is a pretty cute story, and suspenseful at the end, it makes you wonder about Victoria. What secrets does she have, why does she care, and will we see their relationship evolve?

    This book was really really interesting. I literally read the whole thing in less than a week because I just could not put it down. The only reason that I couldn’t give it 5 stars is because it was too short and it left me wanting more!!!! There was an awesome cliffhanger and I NEED to read the next one. I would definitely recommend this if you’re looking to read something with just the right amount of depth and sexiness. ‘Tis a must read unlike any other. 😂 I downloaded this on IBooks.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the depth of characters that the author created. So much being said, that, words spoken couldn’t portray. I look forward to reading the rest of the series. I am an avid reader and most stories are so similar, they are predictable, not the case here. Intrigued and interested in seeing the complexities of human nature unravel.

    This was a very good book, lots of sizzle between the main characters. It will be very interesting to see where the series goes from here.
  • Family Dynamics

    By JJavidreader
    Penny is getting ready for the wedding of the season for her sister Victoria. Her family has never approved of her and she feels like an outsider looking in. The bridesmaids went to an X rated club the weekend before the wedding and of course Penny felt out of place. When she’s ready to run, in walks Xander and the sparks flew. Xander has just been informed that he will loose control of the company that he’s built up if he doesn’t stay in a relationship for one month. The wedding events continue and Penny gets beat down even more and Xander tries to prove to her that she is worth more than her family does but Penny can’t make him see that he’s in the same situation. Will the wedding make a true relationship out of what Penny and Xander are doing or will it end the month long relationship?
