Langley Vaughn is in desperate need of a date.
But not just any date.
She's looking for a date to the wedding from hell. It isn't every day you're forced to be in the bridal party while your first love marries your archnemesis…otherwise known as the world's worst stepsister. The entire situation is a nightmare, and Langley is sick and tired of taking orders and forcing a fake smile. She's done being the bad guy when she was the one who was wronged.
She needs to find a date who's not afraid of her family's money…someone willing to shake things up. She needs someone outside of her normal social circle, someone ready to go to war with the well-to-do. She needs someone who won't back down. Someone willing to play the complicated game of tug-of-war she's been engaged in with her family for years.
Never in a million years did she think she was going to stumble across her very own heroic heartthrob when she set her crazy plan in motion.
Not only does Iker show up for her time and time again, he also forces her to finally fight for herself.
He says he's only there for the money…but his actions speak so much louder than his words.
Iker Alvarez would do anything and everything to get his hands on some quick cash.
Not just any cash, but enough to make sure his younger brother gets into the college of his dreams.
Thank goodness for a desperate, pretty little rich girl with too much money and her heart set on an outrageous scheme. Being in the right place at the right time might just be the answer to both of their prayers—and this smart soldier has never let a golden opportunity slide by.
Iker doesn't mind coming to Langley's rescue and being her plus-one…as long as the price is right.
Only, he didn't plan on liking the blonde socialite as much as he does. He is totally unprepared for the pull he feels toward her, coupled with his growing desire to protect her from the vultures and villains living under the same roof.
He wants to be the guy who keeps her safe and gives her the courage she obviously needs to fight back… But someone else, someone far more powerful and influential than Langley's wealthy family, has dibs on Iker's time and on his future. He knows he isn't the guy Langley can count on in the long run, but damn, if he doesn't want to do everything in his power to be that man.
This is a great book, part one in the “In Luv”duet, easy to read, well written with main characters you will love and supporting characters you will love to hate. Langley was looking for a date to her stepsister’s wedding…not a polite charming date, but a date that would shake things up. In a dingy bar looking for a potential candidate to be her date, she meets Iker and he saves her when trouble hits. They forge a mutually satisfying arrangement.
Iker is real, honest, sexy, loyal and all man. There are two sides to Langley…the fake, plastic version, armor she wears as a shield when dealing with her family and the confident, sexy, relaxed woman, who laughs and teases easily with Iker. Langley and Iker’s chemistry is off the charts and it is great to see Langley grow in confidence with Iker at her side. Their agreement has an end date it wasn’t meant to be forever, but what happens when feelings get in the way? “She’d fallen into my life exactly when I needed her, but the timing couldn’t be worse. The irony of that was incredible.” Their story is concluded in the second book “Boy in Luv.” Highly Recommended.
