Plus One by Aleatha Roming
A fun, sexy new stand-alone from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.
He's sexy and confident, the kind of man every woman notices. You know, the one with the to-die-for body and panty-melting smirk. And then there's the way his designer suits drape over his broad shoulders and big...well, we've all heard the rumors, the ones that say he's up for any challenge.
But I can't see him that way. He's my boss—technically one of the owners of the company where I work—and definitely not in my league. Men like him don't notice women like me, and they don't date them.
And I don't date men like him.
Until that one time that I catch him in a compromising position when I'm also in need of a last-minute date for a wedding...and then it's not real. It's blackmail.
For one weekend, he's my plus-one.
Beautiful and unobtainable.
From the moment she walked into my office with those stunning blue eyes and crazy sensual curves, she's been on my mind. Three years and never once has she acted interested in me. Usually I flash a million-dollar smile and women fall to their knees, some literally.
Then on the occasion that I agree to let another woman do that—fall to her knees—guess who happens to catch us?
It may not be the most conventional way to get on her radar, but I didn't get this far in business without knowing when to seize an opportunity. If this sexy little firecracker with perfectly kissable lips thinks she can blackmail me into attending her cousin's wedding, I'm going to jump at the chance to be her plus-one.
You love her darker side. Now it's time to meet Leatha, the lighter side of Aleatha, as she trades her renowned twists and turns for laughs and love with this sexy new stand-alone romance, PLUS ONE.
4 Star Review by Ashley
Two words I never thought I would use to describe an Aleatha Roming book...FUNNY & LIGHT but there you have it! Plus One was her first attempt into something lighter and she nailed it!
Now don't get me wrong, how the whole "Plus-One" got started had me shaking my head but the guts of the book is where the magic happens. Getting to experience it from both Duncan and Kimbra's POV made it even easier to feel their connection. And there was a BIG one, one that had been brewing for three years. Duncan and Kimbra were both hiding it but when Duncan was presented with an opportunity, he seized it!
I can't even get into all the antics that happened during Duncan's literal weekend with the Joneses but I don't think I've laughed that hard in a long time. Two words- Grandma Helen. I can not put into words the joy that woman brought me. But back to Kimbra. Despite her embarrassment and her need to live up to her perfect family, she let her true colors show. But when the reality of Monday morning came crashing in, the dream was over....
Duncan thought what started in Indiana would carry over to their lives in New York but Kimbra had other ideas. However, Duncan, being the go-getter that he is, wasn't going to let the chance to have the one thing he's wanted for years slip away with the change of a time zone. I appreciated and admired his honesty. And his sweetness. Sigh. My fingers are crossed hard to see more of this lighter side of Aleatha Roming. Now, don't get me wrong because I love her dark side but Plus One was truly something special. Duncan and Kimbra's story is witty, charming, full of humor, heat and heart.
