The first time I lay eyes on Callan Walker, I know he’ll be trouble. With his smug grin, hot Aussie accent and thousand dollar shoes, he’s just the kind of rich guy who always gets what he wants.
And he wants two things: a night of sin, and my cooperation as he outmaneuvers his powerful mother to take control of his uncle’s estate.
I can’t afford either one. I’m the only thing standing between my little sister and the foster care system. He may have money and charm on his side, but I have something even more powerful — pure desperation. This temp job at his mother’s company can become a full time job for me. It has to.
But when Callan’s eyes rake over my body, sometimes I forget my obligations. His piercing gaze finds the fun, optimistic girl I used to be and not the tired person I’ve become.
And it works—if only for a moment. Our night together was a mistake. I can't afford to get sucked into his high-powered family’s treachery. But the closer I get to Callan, the more layers I find beneath those expensive clothes. Though I can’t forget this is temporary. He’s temporary. I have too much to lose.
Too bad my foolish heart didn’t get the memo...
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
As fast-paced and irreverent as it is steamy and dramatic, Temporary is a punchy romance from the American-Australian team of Sarina Bowen and Sarah Mayberry. It brings together Grace Carrington—a perennially unlucky temp at a New York holding company who’s put her art-school dreams on hold—and Callan Walker, the brash scion of the wealthy Aussie family at the helm. On the strength of Callan’s confidence (and accent), Grace lets her guard down long enough to know she’s in trouble. We loved the crackling wit and zinging pace of this modern metropolitan romp.

A pleasant surprise, I love Sarina's books and was really into this one. I can't seem to find the rest of series though. It ended very abruptly. ❤️
Love this writing duo
What's not to love about a book that has a hero with a smug grin, a sexy Aussie accent and who also happens to be the kind of rich guy who always gets what he wants, I have to say Sarina Bowen is one of my go to authors so I will always grab what ever she writes , this time it's a book she has co-written with Sarah Mayberry and what I really loved about this book apart from the story was I couldn't tell you who had written what, the chapters and words just flowed.
Grace is temping and hoping that each new temporary job may lead to that permanent position she desperately needs to support herself and her sister, when a job auditing an estate is offered with the chance of a permanent position at the end of it she jumps on it. What she doesn't expect is to be caught in a family dispute over a final will and testament.
Callan'uncle owned the estate and he knows his mother is up to something when she sends a auditor in to do a quick job of cataloging and selling the estate off, what he didn't expect was the auditor to be someone as beautiful as Grace.
Will Grace do what is needed to keep the job she so badly needs or will she go with her gut feeling and help Callan find the missing Last Will and Testament. This book has so many twists and turns, it's emotional, and at times it's funny especially when Grace's sister Olivia has her say, and of course it's HOT. A beautifully written love story that had me hooked from the first page to the last line. I hope we get more from this writing duo.
