When faking it takes on a whole new meaning…

Tallulah Duncan is excited about her brother’s upcoming wedding in Louisiana, but what she’s not looking forward to is facing the man who will undoubtedly be waiting for her. Years ago she and an old boyfriend made a pact. The next time she comes home, if she’s still single, they’ll get engaged. He’s a nice guy, but Tallulah doesn’t love him—or the idea of being an undertaker’s wife. And the smokin’ hot guy next to her on the plane is a loud-and-clear reminder that her biological clock is on the fritz.

Security specialist Garrett Andersen is pretty sure the gorgeous woman next to him on the plane is about to have a panic attack. And when he tries to distract her, she does the most enchanting, adorable thing he’s ever seen. She blushes.  Since they’re headed to the same wedding, he finds himself agreeing to step into the role of adoring fiancé. In real life, she’s his comrade’s kid sister, so it’s hands off all the way. Except behind closed doors, her all-out campaign of sweet seduction is burning that strategy to ashes…

Warning: This book contains some very hot, very steamy sex, with a smokin’ hot security specialist who knows just how to hit his mark—and make it explode. Did we mention it was hot?

Once again I’ve jumped into a series after it started and once again I’m going to have to add more books to my TBR pile, because if book 1 is anything like Trouble in Tallulah I’ve definitely got to read it.

Tallulah has a yes man complex – she’s sweet and caring (perfect for a teacher) but she also has a hard time saying no and doesn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.  Which is why she finds herself agreeing to a sexy stranger’s suggestion that they pretend to be engaged, otherwise she’s going to end up unhappy as an undertaker’s wife.  Garrett may be attracted to Tallulah but, besides being his buddy’s sister, he believes she’s also too good for him.  He’s not anyone’s HEA … so why is his heart saying something different.

Forced together during the wedding weekend, their attraction quickly overpowers any good intentions about keeping things all business.  But it also gives them a chance to get to know each other better, to glimpse secret fears and longings, and to develop wants and hopes of their own.  And while Garrett helps Tallulah realize that speaking up for what she wants doesn’t mean that she’s being hurtful to someone else, she also starts him wanting something more than he ever has before.  But she may start being assertive, she has a long road ahead of her to show him the man she knows him to be.

They are not kidding when they say this one is hot, but it also has a good amount of heart to go with the steam.  While Tallulah and Garrett definitely have no problem setting fire to the sheets, they also get under each other’s skin.  Sweet, sassy and sexy as all get out, Trouble in Tallulah is a whole lot of fun.
