Good cause. I like kids. Don't have any, don't really want any for a few more years, but they're cute in a long-distance way. As long as they're not sticking raisins up their noses or falling down into sewer drains or following the family cat up a tree.
Okay, so maybe he didn't like kids so much. Not enough to go through this humiliation. Then he thought about his own baby niece and twin nephews. There was nothing he wouldn't do to make sure they remained the safe, healthy munchkins they were.
He was going to have to go through with it. Tugging again at the too-tight collar of his own rent-a-tux, Jake peered through a crease in the black cloth curtains, eyeing the audience. The elegant ballroom was packed with round, white-draped tables, around which sat dozens of women in gowns and shimmery cocktail dresses. Laughter and gossip reigned supreme as they tossed back fruity Cosmos or sparkling champagne. They all watched hungrily, calling out bawdy suggestions as the raucous bidding continued for Bachelor Seventeen, who was currently center stage.
Well, all except one. A brunette who stood about ten feet away from the curtain he was peeking through. And this time, he let his gaze linger. She was almost shadowed by one of the giant standing spotlights, which cast gaudy, unforgiving pools of light on the spectacle occurring on the stage.
But what he saw of her was definitely enough to pique his interest. First because she had some wicked curves. She wasn't a tall stick figure in a little black dress like half the women here. Nor did she have bottled blond hair swept up in a complicated hairdo like the other half of the audience.
No, hers was dark and thick, with long curls that fell in disarray past her shoulders. The look was wildly seductive, as if she'd just left her bed rather than an exclusive Michigan Avenue beauty salon. Earthy, sultry, not at all restrained. The woman was sexy in a way that women didn't seem to allow themselves to be sexy anymore.
Her looks, however, merely started the fire in his gut. Her untouchable, out-of-place demeanor stoked it until it almost engulfed him. The brunette wasn't laughing it up with her rich gal pals, or tossing back Manhattans while turning her hand to make sure her diamond rings showed to their greatest flashy advantage. In fact, if he had to guess, he'd say she looked almost disapproving, even tense.
He couldn't see her face very well, though he got a glimpse of a stiff little jaw, lifted up in visible determination. And her back was military straight. He sensed she was keeping it that way intentionally, as if she didn't dare let her guard down lest she be distracted from whatever mission she'd set for herself.
As if realizing she was being watched, the woman glanced around, turning her head enough to cast her face in a bit of light spilling off the stage. Enough to highlight the creamy skin, the curve of her cheek, the fullness of her lips and the dark flash of her eyes. Jake's hands clenched into fists at his sides. Though she couldn't possibly see him and was in no way mirroring his reaction, hers did the same.
She clenched out of visible concentration that seemed to swirl around her, creating a no-fly zone between her and everyone else in the room. He clenched out of pure lust. And nobody had as much as given him a quickened pulse rate since. Not the women he met at the station. Not the ones he helped.
Not the nurses at the hospital. Not the hot girl who'd moved in upstairs from him, the one who'd already locked herself out three times just so she'd have an excuse to ask for his help. This stranger? She'd given him a hard-on from ten feet away. Product details File Size: June 1, Sold by: Harlequin Digital Sales Corp.

In an attempt to keep her stepmother from engaging in a extramarital affair with a European gigolo, Maddy goes to a charity bachelor auction and places the winning bid for the man she believes is the gigolo. Jake can't believe he's let himself be pressured by his Chief into being a bachelor in a charity auction.
While waiting backstage, he peers out the stage curtain and sees the woman of his dreams. To Jake's pleasant surprise, the woman he spotted earlier is the winner, and thus begins our wonderful tale of mistaken identity. Maddy is overwhelmed by Jake and can't resist his charms even though she knows Jake is a paid escort. She hadn't planned to become involved with such a man, but the temptation of being with Jake is more than she can bear. Jake is falling for Maddy, but can't figure out what is holding her back and why she seems to think he gets paid to be with women.
I downloaded this one simply because Ive never read a book that took place in my home town of Chicago. I was slightly disappointed when the first love scene I read started out strong, with enough detail to make you feel like a part of the story and not just a reader, but then ended with a trail off as though someone had closed the curtain on their most intimate moment.
I put it down intending to be done with it - but ill be darned if I couldnt stop wondering about Maddy and Jake. I decided to give it another chance, and Im so glad I did. Although I thought the 30 day deal could have played out much better than it did, leaving much more room for additional chapters and stuggles, the ending was by no means lazy. It tied together nicely, leaving you with a satisfied feeling at the close of your journey. I did take slight issue with the notion of Chicago's "high society.
Ive lived in Chicago for 30 years, and while Im sure there are some rich high society people having dinner parties up in our high rises, Ive never once heard of anything like it - let alone read about it in any publication.
That little tiny smudge on this story was very easy to let go of though, especially since Jakes character falls easily into the roll of a true, down home Chicago guy. To impress me with a contemporary is rare This was a nice surprise from Leslie Kelly. The story turns around mistaken identity: Jake falls for Maddy and insists to get on a date with her no matter what, and from there they start building a relationship with Maddy thinking he is a gigolo and trying not to fall in love with him Overall it is a fun book, it has some nice moments and I must say I was surprised by the hot sex scenes Also, it ends quite abruptly and there is no epilogue I might be a bit repetitive with this, but for me a romance without epilogue feels like something is missing I really love my romances to have a happy ever after..
So, for me, is this an OK read for a fun break in the day?: Is it a good enough book to be a keeper?: See all reviews. What other items do customers download after viewing this item?
