The most beautiful man I’ve ever seen is the same one who can ruin everything.
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…

Temporary was a quick and fun read about a rich playboy and an independent temp hired (by his mom’s company) to help get his uncle’s estate in order. Overall I really enjoyed this book. I got through it quick and was surprised when it ended. I feel like some questions weren’t answered but it’s not really a cliffhanger. Callie’s mother is atrocious and hope to see her get her due in another book.
The humor was used well in breaking up emotional tension but didn’t have me laughing out loud. Grace’s sister is a riot and I like the themes of family and love that run throughout the book.
I like that it touched on some LBGTQ issues, especially on family acceptance. The authors made these issues secondary to the story but I’m glad that they not only touched on them but did it in a factual and respectful manner.
I’d probably read more books by these authors. The writing was well done and kept me interested throughout. I received an advanced copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary review.
For a smart person, sometimes I could be really stupid.
