(Better Date than Never series, Book #7)
Career-driven attorney, Jill Parnell, has worked long and hard to become a partner at Corbett, Gray, & Shaw. When the coveted position is given to the boss’s nephew, she does what any intelligent employee would do—attends a colleague’s wedding and schmoozes a high-powered partner at another law firm.
Her potential new boss has only one condition for her, that she demonstrate a personal life that will support a thriving career. Pretending to have a boyfriend is outside Jill’s comfort zone, but she invites the best man to act the part and Ryan is all-too eager to play her significant other. Sparks fly between them, but she reminds herself she’s only driven to date to get back on the partner track.
When Jill discovers Ryan is the lawyer who stole her promotion, her charade threatens to implode. But breaking off their pretend relationship could cost her the job of her dreams. And the more she gets to know Ryan, the more she’s tempted to tame the bad boy, and make him her own.

I'm really stuck on Ryan getting a job from a family member in a firm that he didn't work for before that. I had a real problem with that. It turns out that he is qualified for the job, but would he have been hired even if he hadn't been qualified? The idea was a hard one to shake. It's impossibl...
I'm so glad that these books don't require you to read the series in order to understand what's going on, because I am all sorts of insane with the reading order. I read the sixth one a while ago, and then this one was free one day, so I snatched it up, too. I don't think I even realized that they w...
