A man wasn’t on her holiday wish list…
His grandfather’s will had made it perfectly clear: Gabriel Kane had to be married by the age of thirty-seven or he’d be denied control of the family business. With only days to go, billionaire Gabriel isn’t above maintaining his deception and using blackmail and bribery to get what he wants. Too bad his friend, Josie, is his only option. But is she desperate enough to accept his marriage proposal?
Entrepreneur Josie Wright burns the candle at both ends and keeps her eye firmly on her goals: to grow her chain of coffee shops and to protect her brother. Children and a family of her own would be nice, too, but she won’t trust her heart again. Gabe’s unwanted proposal might solve all her problems, or it might be her biggest mistake.
As Gabe battles his aunt and cousin over the family business and Josie fears losing hers, can two people already living overfull lives find room for each other? Will a marriage of convenience born from lies and blackmail transform their former friendship into a marriage of true love or create a smoldering wreck?

Loved this book!
Loved the book! This author's books get better with every new one that comes out. Josie is just wonderful in every way: witty, smart, hard-working, talented and you wonder why with all that she's let a few bum guys get in the way of true love in her life. She's got her reasons and you think, time and time again, she's going to get that kind of love in her life when literally everything goes wrong. Gabe is spot-on, the perfect mix of the perfect guy yet screwed up enough to make you root for him. He's handsome, a touch arrogant and rich and .... oh yeah, lies to a woman he's blackmailing into marrying him. What could go wrong? Just everything, and yet, it's a steamy-yet-not-steamy clean-cut romance with twists and turns that kept me wanting to know how it ended. Great book! I received an ARC and am voluntarily leaving my review.
