Aspiring writer Kelli Dalton needs a man, and fast. When she’s rear-ended by a sexy-as-sin biker on the way to a Vegas romance readers convention, she sees her chance. If he’ll pose as her fake boyfriend long enough to impress a bestselling author, Kelli has a shot at saving the bookstore for underprivileged kids she runs back home.
Quinn Anderson doesn’t know what to make of the cute little writer who stirs his heart and his libido, but he does know he wants to get better acquainted. And if that means keeping up their sexy ruse all week, he’s game.
Quinn knows girl like Kelli deserves someone with a secure future to help with her store, not a guy struggling to turn a profit on his chopper shop. But if his motorcycle designs win the big Vegas competition, he’ll have enough prize money to fund his dreams…and hers.

I really enjoyed this book. I’d been feeling tired and a little rundown, but this story gave me such a lift. Right from the start I liked Kelli, she’s a bookstore owner whose landlady is trying to put her out of business because she uses her retail powers for good (inspiring less advantaged kids to read), and who also dreams of becoming a romance author. She’s also a teeny-tiny bit jealous of her supposed best friend, whose best-selling book Kelli beta-read and rewrote extensively without even getting a mention in the acknowledgements. So she’s a normal woman, struggling to keep her dreams alive, with a best friend who seems determined to belittle her talents at every turn. I had to like her.
Then comes a fender bender with a sexy biker and I knew this book and I would get along.
What follows is flirty and sexy, with a touch of sweetness, some scorching chemistry and lots and lots of fun. I loved the craziness of the convention and the way Quinn takes part was just brilliant. Quinn is a refreshingly normal kind of guy. He’s easy going, hot and good natured. The things he puts up with for Kelli are frequently hilarious and although he has a few dramas in his past, he’s pleasantly angst free. I loved how things developed between him and Kelli – they’re so cute together. Quinn’s first impression of best-frenemy Brae made me chuckle a lot too.
Okay, so perhaps Brae was a little cliché and things with her boyfriend felt a bit weird. I also would have liked more of Quinn’s family, because things with his mother went strange towards the end.
However, when it comes to Kelli and Quinn, I loved this book. It’s fun and flirty, with a good touch of heat, a lot of romance-orientated silliness (the bisexual wereparrots were definitely my favourite) and was pure enjoyment from start to finish. I am definitely going to have to try more books from this author, because anyone who can write feel good fun like this deserves a second look.
