Just Say Yes! Confirmed bachelor Dr. Marcos Calderon is in hot water. He needs to come up with a fake fiancée fast or he’ll disappoint his beloved grandma who’s arriving on the next flight to meet her. Proper social worker Gabriela Morales should fit the bill—but tonight, in that sexy, slit-to-there red evening gown, she looks anything but proper. Gabriela only volunteered for the hospital’s charity bachelorette auction to benefit a cause dear to her heart. Now she’s reeling from the hot doctor’s bid of fifteen thousand dollars for a weekend date with her! She’s not sure what Dr. Handsome has in mind, but the smoldering look in his eyes is unmistakable…
I tend to avoid books with couples or hunky men on the front- think of it as a preset bias. I don't know why, but I just can't bring myself to pick them up. Sophia's book has a sexy couple on the front. *insert dooming music* Only it wasn't dooming at all! From the first pages I instantly feel in love the characters She creates a beautiful character arc. I wanted the book to go! "Give me more, dammit." The playboy Marcos is full of self-confidence that makes you want to hate him or at least view him as Gabriela does in the beginning! It seems that all things change with this book. The humor thrown in fun and makes you smile as you read. I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Marcos' grandmother! My mom came from the Old Country, and I could just imagine that my grandma was like this too- only insert French accent. The only problem I had was that I wanted more background. Sophia adds in little bits and pieces but there are some things that are left unsaid. I want some back memories! This is an excellent, lighthearted read. I smiled my way through it. It is a quick read though. I did not read the first book in the series, Wild For You, so I can't comment on if it follows the same vein, but this book easily stands alone. I highly recommend it for those that like makes-you-smile-at-the-end kind of reads. The sexual element is not overwhelming, but makes you feel for the two characters as their relationship develops. This book is fabulous and I can't wait to read other works by Sophia Knightly. I hope everyone picks it up and reads it. Thank you, Sophia for the chance to read such a wonderful book and opening my eyes to a different aspect of romance!
