Shy banker, Madeline Turner, is drafted by her half-sister to buy the "services" of a gigolo at a charity auction. If Maddy didn't purchase this guy her new stepmother would and use his services. It would break their father's heart if he were to find out.
Paramedic Jake Wallace had been "convinced" to help out by his boss. The only way he could get through the humiliation of being auctioned off like a piece of meat with a bunch of the wild women hooting and whistling in the audience was by reminding himself of all the needy kids that would have a good Christmas because of this night.
Jake peaked through the curtain and took one look at Maddy. His body had an instant reaction to her and he hoped she would be the woman to buy him.
Maddy bought and paid for him and then disappeared. Without even leaving a contact number for their date.
Jake tracked her down and insisted she had to go on their date.
They really, really liked each other.
Maddy didn't want a relationship, she couldn't handle a relationship.The prologue leads to a bit of confusion. The women putting together the program for the charity auction are never seen or heard of again. But the repercussions of their incompetence are felt throughout the rest of the book. However, from the very first sentence in Chapter 1 you are hooked by fabulous dialogue, good story building, the comedy of the mistaken identity, and HOT love scenes.
You have to read the book yourself to see how it all ends.
