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.
