Confident but distrustful Sophie Caldwell needs help if she's going to save her family business. Her grandma left one rule for Sophie to maintain ownership from her uncle before she's thirty: get married. But how does she get her uncle off her ass when she's only twenty-seven and hasn't had a boyfriend in years?
Lean, cut, British-born MMA fighter Xander James has never lost a fight, and he's not about to start now. On the brink of a comeback to be a UFC champion, his landlord wants to take away his last chance by shutting down his gym. No. Hell no. Fortunately, his landlord's niece has a problem of her own. Time for a proposal she can't refuse.
What’s it About? Sophie Caldwell needs help to save her family business from her uncle. Unfortunately the only way she can keep her grandmother’s bakery is if she’s A.) Already thirty, or B.) Married. Sophie is only twenty-seven and her uncle wants to sell the bakery along with the space being used as a gym by British born MMA fighter Xander James. Fortunately for Sophie, Xander has an idea: A marriage of convenience. Just until they’re both in the clear and then they can go their separate ways. Never mind that there’s been an unspoken attraction between them since they first met.
Did you like him?Yes.
Why? Xander was fifty kinds of sweaty goodness! He was working so hard on his UFC comeback and was willing to do anything to make it happen. I loved that while he married Sophie to help get what he wanted, he was so selfish that he didn’t help Sophie grow her business. For a “fake” husband he was so attentive, considerate, and just totally irresistible.
Did you like her? Yes.
Why? Yay for tattooed, pierced heroines! Something different! Just the face that Sophie was the one with the tats and piercings made her stand out but she wasn’t a clichéd bad girl. In fact, she was a total sweetheart and a good friend. I loved her dedication to her grandmother’s bakery and to her customers but also to helping Xander succeed. Sophie didn’t throw tantrums because he didn’t as much time with her because he was training, she remained independent no matter what.
Click It or Skip It? Click It. Xander and Sophie find a balance between passion and humor and it totally works for them. Gina L. Maxwell did a great job with these two.
