Surfer Zane Hollander has always been lucky with the ladies. But if he’s to land a new sponsor, Zane needs to clean up his act, and fast. He might not have anything in common with brainy event planner Sophie Birch, but she’s sweet and respectable—exactly what he needs.
Sophie’s never set foot on a beach, let alone left her hometown…until now. What does a sex-on-a-surfboard celebrity like Zane see in a klutzy bookworm like her? Oh, right. Nothing. Their relationship is purely fictional. And Zane is supposed to be on his best behavior. Sigh.
But the more Sophie blossoms under the beachy sun, the more Zane fears he'll just break her heart. And this time, he’s found a heart he isn’t willing to break…

Sophie needs to let her hair down a little. Instead of looking for Mr. Right, she needs some time with Mr. Right Now. Living in Montana, she takes an assignment/vacation to sunny California to oversee the Surf Fanatic Film Festival. This is where she meets Zane Hollander, sexy, gorgeous surf pro. Zane needs to clean up his reputation if he wants to be the ambassador to Surf Help Exchange, a non-profit organization promoting humanitarian, clean water, and natural healing efforts around the world. Will Sophie agree to accompany Zane to a few public appearances in exchange for getting more business for her company?
Great story with fabulous characters! Bryce, Danny, and Honor were fantastic secondary characters. Sophie is full of surprises. Zane had no clue what he would awaken inside little Ms. Wholesome Montana. I loved her character growth throughout the story. The issues Zane had were a little more difficult to navigate.
Robin Bielman writes fantastic contemporary romance and I'm always wearing a smile at the end of her books!
Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Great characters learning about growing maturity, and acceptance. Just a real nice story with a HEA.
Keeping Mr. Right Now
I have long been a fan of Robin Bielman's romantic contemporaries. There is always humor, a very sweet love story and a HEA. This book is no exception and is actually my favorite of Ms. Bielman's so far.
Zane Hollander is a professional surfer with the bad boy image it carries. He spends so much time on the road, his usual hook ups are quick and almost anonymous. He never graduated high school and feels somewhat inferior which adds to his pick of women who want to be Zaned for a day or two.
He has a chance for the ambassadorship for Surf Help Exchange. Their goal is promoting clean water and natural healing efforts across the globe. They have a stellar reputation and Bryce, his agent and Danny his business manager think he would be perfect. For eight days in White Strand Cove, California he has to be the best he can be. Both in the water and out. Bryce and Danny have decided to find him an appropriate "girl next door" type to make him behave for the week.
Sophie Birch is afraid she is in way over her head. This is the first time she has handled a special event on her own. She is in charge of keeping the Surf Fanatic Film Festival on schedule with no bumps in the road. Sophie is so excited being from Montana the sight of the Pacific Ocean catches her breath. She made a friend almost immediately, her name is Honor and treated her to her first piña coloda . Honor is very impressed that Sophie has a surf lesson with the infamous Zane Hollander, he doesn't do lessons.
Sophie shows up for her lesson and is speechless at the total lusciousness of Zane, and forgets to be nervous that she has never set foot in the ocean before. He shows her the fundamentals in the sand, and takes her out in the water. Disaster...... After nearly drowning, Zane grabbed her from the water and brought her to shore, he ends up being the hero! As compensation Bryce and Danny want her to be Zane's date for the festivities. Mr. Right Now it is.
This delightful read had great characters and I think their might be some action between Honor and Bryce in the future! The description of the surf and sand made you feel like you were there. I personally recommend this novel for the laughs, the heat, and the love story.
I received this eBook from the publisher for an honest review.
