A fun, sexy new stand-alone from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.
He's sexy and confident, the kind of man every woman notices. You know, the one with the to-die-for body and panty-melting smirk. And then there's the way his designer suits drape over his broad shoulders and big...well, we've all heard the rumors, the ones that say he's up for any challenge.
But I can't see him that way. He's my boss—technically one of the owners of the company where I work—and definitely not in my league. Men like him don't notice women like me, and they don't date them.
And I don't date men like him.
Until that one time that I catch him in a compromising position when I'm also in need of a last-minute date for a wedding...and then it's not real. It's blackmail.
For one weekend, he's my plus-one.
Beautiful and unobtainable.
From the moment she walked into my office with those stunning blue eyes and crazy sensual curves, she's been on my mind. Three years and never once has she acted interested in me. Usually I flash a million-dollar smile and women fall to their knees, some literally.
Then on the occasion that I agree to let another woman do that—fall to her knees—guess who happens to catch us?
It may not be the most conventional way to get on her radar, but I didn't get this far in business without knowing when to seize an opportunity. If this sexy little firecracker with perfectly kissable lips thinks she can blackmail me into attending her cousin's wedding, I'm going to jump at the chance to be her plus-one.
You love her darker side. Now it's time to meet Leatha, the lighter side of Aleatha, as she trades her renowned twists and turns for laughs and love with this sexy new stand-alone romance, PLUS ONE.

Book Review: 3.5 Stars
After reading Aleatha Romig’s suspense duet, INTO THE LIGHT, I became an instant fan. I fell in love with her master mind, her ability to develop these amazing plots and unbelievable twists. I learned real fast to expect the unexpected with her, so when I learned she was expanding her creativity and coming to the “light side”, I was instantly intrigued. (I tend to lean more towards reading lighter romance novels.) And for an author that is known for her “dark side”, that piqued my curiosity even more.
Kimbra (aka Kimberly Ann) Jones needs a “Plus One” for her cousin’s wedding. She blackmails one of the co-owners of the pharmaceutical company where she works, after finding him in a compromising position. She needs a plus one for the weekend and she will take that chance, even knowing it’s ethically wrong. She’s desperate and she takes desperate measures.
Duncan Willis is co-founder of “Buchanan & Willis Pharmaceuticals”. He always gets what he wants, no woman can resist him, but three years ago when he met Kimbra Jones at his office, he wanted her immediately, but he thought she didn’t even notice him. Now she is in front of him asking to pretend to be her boyfriend or she’d report the incident. He would never let someone tell him what to do, but this is the chance he’s been waiting for, finally Kimbra has noticed him and he will seize his opportunity.
I really feel bad about the rating I’m giving this book, not only because it’s Aleatha and I’ve come to love her novels, but also because it has an interesting plot, but unfortunately I just couldn’t connect with the story. I liked this book, but in the end, I just couldn’t love it. I didn’t like how things went so fast between them. I did really like this one particular part when they enjoyed a weekend in Kimbra’s hometown. The whole situation with her family was hilarious and very entertaining. And I did like how the things worked out in the end for them, love the final chapter.
Despite this book didn’t fulfill my complete expectations. I’m positive it will resonate with others because it still contains Aleatha’s unique writing style.
