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.

Not her.

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.

Release Day: May 16th
A fun, sexy new stand-alone from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

I had the opportunity to listen to the audio of Plus One by Aleatha Romig and jumped right on it. This is my second Lighter Ones book by Aleatha Romig I have read/listened too, and I loved it. We get a fun, light, sexy and very enjoyable story. There is very little drama and a whole lotta sweet.

Kimberly Ann, as she is known to her family, Kimbra as she goes by now, is in need of a plus one for the upcoming wedding of her cousin. Her family believes she is still with her ex, who cheated on her on New Year’s and she broke up with. The last thing she wants is to have her family’s pity and meddling. So, when the opportunity presents itself, she finds her very hot boss in a very comprising position, she decides she has found her plus one.

Duncan Willis has not been able to keep Kimbra Jones out of his mind since the first time he saw her in his office three years ago. She is what every wet dream is made of, for him, every night. But she has never once shown any interest in him, until now. She thinks she is bribing him to be a plus one, but what he is really doing is seizing the opportunity to spend time with her.

I loved Kimbra and Duncan. Kimbra was such a strong and intelligent woman. She was living her dream, even if her family does not understand. But when it comes to her family she is vulnerable and insecure, though they love her and only want to see her happy. Duncan was charming, strong, determined and a lady’s man. But he had secrets and those secrets is what kept his heart behind iron walls, that is until Kimbra. Can he let her own or will he lose her?

Kimbra insists the weekend they will spend at her family’s farm is only pretend. But their chemistry and connection cannot be denied. They are so sweet and hot together and totally honest to each other. I loved seeing them interact not only with each other, but with her family as well. Grandma Helen was a hoot! I want to be her when I grow up! When the weekend is finally over, will they be as well?

The narrators, Samantha Prescott and Brian Pallino, did an amazing job in bringing Kimbra Jones and Duncan Willis to life. They did a great job with the characters and story. Plus One is one sweet and charming read that will have you laughing and swooning! I loved the audio and highly recommend reading or listening to Plus One by Aleatha Romig.

 EXCERPT

I’m in an alternate universe and it’s every fantasy I never knew I had.

What CEO of a billion-dollar company dreams of enjoying a farm in the middle of nowhere? Who imagines waking in a small bedroom, complete with a canopy bed and sunshine streaming through pink curtains, as birds sing? What owner of a 7,000-square-foot penthouse with a to-die-for view of the Empire State Building enjoys the hominess of a hundred-year-old, 3,000-square-foot farmhouse with a wraparound porch, creaky floors, and a view of cornfields?

Sitting with a cup of steaming black coffee, I listen as Kimbra and her brother Kevin bicker back and forth while helping their mother in the large eat-in kitchen. The warm spring air is filled with the sizzle of frying as the aroma of coffee, eggs, and bacon reminds me of some of the best diners in New York.

Although Kimbra’s dad, Oscar, is talking, I can’t concentrate on anything but Kimbra—Kimberly Ann. That’s what everyone here calls her.

“Because of you, I’m out ten bucks.” Kevin says, not doing a good job of whispering.

“Me?” Kimbra asks. “What did I do?”

Kevin tilts his head my way. “You brought a real guy here. I put money on him being made up.”

Kimbra reaches out and punches his shoulder.

He lifts his hands in surrender. “No. Listen. I was sure it was a good bet. When Mom said your boyfriend’s name wasn’t Timothy, but Duncan, and you didn’t want him in the wedding, Susan and I figured he wasn’t real. I bet Jimmy ten bucks this fake Duncan guy would be a no-show. Susan and I were sure that before last night, you’d have some reason why at the last minute he couldn’t attend. You know, like you’d make up some accident or something.”

Her brother is about as good at speaking softly as he is at being nice to his sister.

“Shut up!” Kimbra whispers back. “Obviously he’s real.”

Kevin’s head falls back in laughter. “He’s real, all right. Last night I thought your old bed was going to collapse.”

Kimbra’s eyes flash to me. And though I look down at my coffee and pray her dad isn’t listening, the gleam in her expression makes my cock twitch with the memories of the night before.
