My Review...

I was super excited to read this book since after A night of Southern Comfort I became a fan of Robin Covington.  I didn't know what to expect in this book but was pleasantly surprised with how it all turned out.

Mick Blackwell is a gorgeous, successful movie star. Who has never been in love and can't relate to his current role
Piper James is a successful writer with a jaded past that was in the spotlight.  Piper is called in to help Mick act like he is in love.

The chemistry is instant.
Mick leaned in, and heat swept over her skin, settling in her most intimate places.  He was the man every woman wanted in spite of his playboy reputation.  Or maybe because of it. She loved men who came with a warning label. And Mick Blackwell didn't just have a label - he had a neon "Flammable. Do not touch" sign flashing over his head.
They both thought that they could play along with one another without either of them getting burnt.


Because of Piper's past she can't believe Mick's intentions.  Because of Mick's non loving past he is not truly sure of his intentions until it is almost too late.

Can love survive the media shit storm?

I really liked the story.  Their chemistry was experimentive and explosive while still being sweet.
