Temporarily Yours by Diane Alberts
Entangled Publishing - January 2014

This soldier’s the perfect hoax…if she doesn’t fall for him first.
Stats whiz Kayla Moriarity knows her way around numbers and algorithms. Men, on the other hand, are unsolvable equations. Now Kayla’s en route to her sister’s wedding—without the fictional boyfriend she invented for her family. Fortunately, her plane comes complete with complimentary cocktails and a ridiculously hot ex-marine in the seat beside her. And that’s all it takes for Kayla’s inhibitions to go sailing out the airlock...
Cooper Shillings has soft spot for people in trouble, but he certainly wasn’t expecting to land in it himself—and definitely not while getting naughty mid-air with a sexy southern belle. When he hears Kayla’s predicament, however, he offers his services as a stand-in boyfriend. After all, he’s heading overseas soon...and how could he refuse a little no-strings wickedness?
It’s the perfect plan. And all Kayla has to do is ensure her family falls for the ultimate bluff, without falling for it—and Cooper—in the process...

 My  Thoughts:  Whether she's writing as Diane Alberts or Jen McLaughlin, I'm a huge fan of all her work and the fact that this is an Entangled Brazen book is just icing on the cake.  Needless to say, I was looking forward to diving into the pages of the hot romance I knew I was in store for.  

Kayla Moriarity is headed home to her younger sister's wedding, while Cooper Shillings is headed to his new job.  A crowded airport, an overzealous youngster, and a candy cane later, Cooper Shillings finds himself flat on his back and between the knees of one of the hottest women he has ever seen.  Now before you get ahead of yourself, this isn't what it seems, though you will get to delightfully experience what it seems a little further into the novel.  Right here, however, he is actually on his back on the floor in an airport terminal after being stabbed by a super hero wanna-be with a candy cane.  I kid you not, and talk about a memorable introduction and beginning to a story, that it certainly was.  Cooper and Kayla hit it off from the get go and thanks to a few stiff drinks combined with Kayla's tendency to ramble when she's afraid, and she is deathly afraid of flying, Cooper soon knows the whole story about the fake boyfriend she has created to get her family off her back, and is enjoying himself immensely in the process.  That enjoyment goes both ways, as Kayla is quite taken with this green-eyed gorgeous hunk of a man seated beside her.  They actually giving flying first class a whole new meaning, one that I will always think of fondly when it come to flying from now on.  One think leads to another and Cooper winds up playing the role of the fictional boyfriend for the weekend and they both have a lot of fun in the's when things start to feel more real than fake that the problems begin. 

I loved Kayla's character.  She is an actuary, something I never would have guessed could make for such an interesting character, and I really liked her.  Cooper is an ex-marine and let's just say Diane Alberts delivers once again in the hottie department, creating a guy you can't help but fall head over heels for.  The story she has written is fun, sexy, and romantic, and reaches the top of the scale in the steam factor as well.  

Temporarily Yours was a quick read for me and I devoured it in one sitting, enjoying every minute.  Diane Alberts has delivered once again, a really great sexy romance, something she has quickly made herself known for, and a definite book to add to your TBR list if you are a contemporary romance fan.
