Hot man for hire...

Rachel Clarke is a single mom with three boys, and she needs help. Now. Unfortunately, her only option is John MacDonald-her high school sweetheart and the disgraced hometown hero who's just returned to Lake Bliss. He's perfect for the job. He cooks, he cleans, and he's amazing with kids. He's also still far too sinfully hot for Rachel's comfort...

Rachel is just as gorgeous as John remembers. But in order for his new youth activity center to be a success, John needs Rachel's help to earn the town's trust back. In exchange, he'll take care of her boys for the summer while she works. Except keeping their relationship strictly business is harder than he imagined. But summer can't last forever, and when it ends, so will their arrangement-and John's time in Lake Bliss.

Erin: A single mom of three boys that turns to her former high school sweetheart, now town bad boy for help was a premise I just could resist. Luckily for me, Jenna Rutland’s Just for Appearances lived up to my expectations. It’s the second book in her Lake Bliss series and it was even better than the first one. Lots of sexual tension, a good plot, and a fast pace made this quite enjoyable.

Rachel Clarke needs help. As a single mom, she needs someone to watch and take care of her kids over the summer. John MacDonald has returned to Lake Bliss, disgraced and in need of an image makeover, agrees to watch her boys hoping it will help repair the damage and keep his youth activity center open. An agreement to keep things strictly professional goes by the wayside as soon as these two realize their feelings for one another have never really faded. There’s a lot of back and forth between these two that lent itself to much tension, both sexual and otherwise. Rachel and John are so comfortable with one another, it’s no wonder their love blossoms.

Check out Just for Appearances. It’s a sweet, comfort read that shows why getting there is half the fun!

Erin

Erin is a book addict! She loves books of all kinds, but her favorites are Contemporary Romance or YA (and she reads both boy/boy AND boy/girl, sometimes even girl/girl!) She's been reading since she could hold a book in her hands and doesn't see that changing any time soon. Give her a Coke, kick ass tunes from her favorite playlists, and a book, and she's in reading heaven.

She's a Texan, though she drinks her tea plain and NOT sweet. She loves cheesecake, strawberry limeade's from Sonic and her favorite color is purple. In her books, she loves an HEA, but she never minds if the road is rough to get there, as long as the reward is worth the struggle.
