He was nobody's hero until he landed in the wrong bed…

Armed with a golden retriever and a concealed weapons permit, Lena Clark is fighting for normal. She served her country, but the experience left her emotionally numb and estranged from her career-military family. Staying in Independence Falls seems like the first step to reclaiming her life until the town playboy stumbles into her bed…

Chad Summers is living his dream—helicopter logging by day and slipping between the sheets with Mrs. Right Now by night. Until his wild nights threaten his day job, leaving Chad with a choice: prove he can settle down or kiss his dream goodbye. But when he ends up in the wrong bed, the one woman in Independence Falls he can't touch offers a tempting proposition. Chad is ready and willing to give in to the primal desire to make Lena his at night—on one condition. By day, they pretend their relationship is real.

But their connection extends beyond the bedroom, threatening to turn their sham into reality if Chad can prove he's the hero Lena needs night and day… forever.

Kassiah: You know I love the fake-relationships-to-real trope, and this one was very different from anything I’ve ever read. I’m not sure what to say or think here, so I’ll let you know what it’s about. Playboy Chad needs a steady relationship for job and Lena suffers from PTSD and can’t be intimate. After realizing their mutual attraction, they decide to have a fake relationship by day for him and he’ll help her get over her fears in bed.

I kind of have a problem with this kind of therapy, but I’m going to suspend my disbelief of that and go with the couple. They brought out the best in each other. I loved Chad’s dirty talk and his personality, but you know he’s the kind of guy I always love the most. Lena was strong and I wanted her to get better. But like I said, I’m not convinced that she could get better just by having a patient lover. Though it was hot, the story had some pacing issues for me, and I didn’t feel like I connected with these characters. I haven’t read the other books in the series, and yeah this one had an interesting premise, but I didn’t love it.
