New Release Review: Temporary by Sarina Bowen and Sarah Mayberry

by Sarina Bowen and Sarah Mayberry
Release Date: September 12, 2017

The most beautiful man I've ever seen is the same one who can ruin everything.

The first time I lay eyes on Callan Walker, I know he’ll be trouble. With his smug grin, hot Aussie accent and thousand dollar shoes, he’s just the kind of rich guy who always gets what he wants. 

And he wants two things: a night of sin, and my cooperation as he outmaneuvers his powerful mother to take control of his uncle’s estate.

I can’t afford either one. I’m the only thing standing between my little sister and the foster care system. He may have money and charm on his side, but I have something even more powerful -- pure desperation. This temp job at his mother’s company can become a full time job for me. It has to. 

But when Callan’s eyes rake over my body, sometimes I forget my obligations. His piercing gaze finds the fun, optimistic girl I used to be and not the tired person I’ve become.

And it works--if only for a moment. Our night together was a mistake. I can't afford to get sucked into his high-powered family’s treachery. But the closer I get to Callan, the more layers I find beneath those expensive clothes. Though I can’t forget this is temporary. He’s temporary. I have too much to lose. 

Too bad my foolish heart didn’t get the memo...

My review: 5 stars!
Sarina Bowen is a one-click author for me- I feel like I have read her entire backlist, and loved every single word. I'm happy to say that after reading and loving the co-written Temporary by Bowen and Mayberry, I'll be checking out Mayberry's backlist as well. Temporary had everything I love in my romance reads: likable characters (Callen is dreamy!), a slow burn, super hot chemistry, witty banter, and great secondary characters. I hope these two authors partner again soon! The ending of the book hints that that might just be happening! Cannot wait!
