Review: Training the Temp by Melinda Di Lorenzo


Part-time journalist Beth Styles has been assigned the terrible task of reporting on one of Seattle's most eligible bachelors. All she has to do is get in, get the story, and get out. Everything is going fine, until she opens her big mouth and challenges the man of the hour to a bet. Thank goodness the only thing on the line is her career. And her integrity. Oh, and her hand in marriage...

Real estate mogul Parker Stephenson likes to be in control, and he hates the press, so he'll do anything to keep from ruining his reputation, including taking on this pretty, mouthy journalist. Even if that means promising - in front of thirty witnesses, no less - that he can make her fall in love with him in just 28 days. Too bad he can't seem to take charge of her, the way he takes charge of everything else...

My Review:

The challenge is on.  Who will win?

Parker Stephenson is a private CEO who made the mistake of being caught in camera saying he could make any woman fall in love with him and then train her to be a good wife.  He ruffled a lot of feathers with that statement.

Beth Styles needs an interview with Parker in order to secure a permanent position with Between The Sheets, the magazine that she works for.  She will do anything to get it.

When Beth confronts Parker about his statement and wanting an interview, he gives her an ultimatum.  He tells her that he can have her trained to be his wife in 28 days.  If it doesn't happen, Beth can have her interview.  Beth isn't happy about the arrangement but she goes along with it so she can get the interview.  A lot of things can happen in 28 days, even falling in love.

This book was hard to put down.  It covered a wide range of emotions and I couldn't help but cheer on Beth and Parker as I read their story.  They were perfect for each other but they just needed a big push to realize it.
