Excerpts
From the book

“I want your body.”

Callie Matthews jerked around to see her boss, her very sexy Hollywood-plastic-surgeon boss standing only a few feet away in the foyer of his office. When he reached behind his back, the lock to the front door slid into place with a quick flick of his wrist.

“Excuse me?” she asked, thankful the office was now closed.

A naughty grin spread across Noah Foster’s face, showcasing that killer smile that never failed to make women weak in the knees as their panties were dropping. Granted, her panties had always remained in place, but still…

Mercy, she was so shallow, because if he so much as crooked a finger for her to follow him into the break room and.

“Hear me out,” he said, holding his hands up. “I know you want to catch your big break by acting–“

O-kay. So they obviously weren’t having the same thoughts about him wanting to tear off her underwear in the break room. Such a shame.

“But,” he went on, oblivious to her naughty thoughts, “I have a proposition for you.”

Those last three words were like music to her ears. That break-room fantasy might come true after all.

“I have an upcoming ad campaign I’d like you to model for.”

She shook her head. “I’m sorry. What?”

Model? The chubby teen that still lived inside her nearly laughed. But Callie had long since left that girl behind in Kansas.

Noah moved toward her, never taking his gaze from hers, never breaking that signature smile. “I’d like you to do the modeling for the ad to launch my new office across town.”

Callie came to her feet and moved around the desk. “Obviously, you haven’t thought this through.”

He raked his eyes down her body, sending all kinds of yummy thoughts swirling through her overactive imagination. “Oh, but I have. And it’s you I want.”

Oh, baby. If only those words were used under different circumstances.

“You have tons of clients you could use,” she told him as she turned and marched down the hall to the lounge to retrieve her purse. “Besides, I’ve never modeled.”

Like most transplants to L.A., Callie had come eager to be the next actress that would make Hollywood directors and producers sit up in their chairs and take notice of her remarkable talents. Unfortunately, her agent couldn’t get her any auditions that weren’t embarrassing. So far she’d done a commercial for zit cream and one for STD meds. Yeah, not the claim to fame she’d been hoping for. But she had to start somewhere, right?

Wait, maybe that whole STD thing was why Noah wasn’t so interested in seeing her outside the office. He did know that was purely acting…didn’t he? She was free and clear in that department, especially considering her lack of sexual experience. Not that she was a virgin, but she might as well be for the two pathetic encounters she’d had.

“I just want a few pictures of you, Callie.” Noah followed her and rested an impressive broad shoulder against the door-jamb. “The ads we’re going for will showcase the natural side of surgery, how to stay young and fresh.”

Callie mimicked his action and crossed her own arms over her chest and leaned against the counter. “But other than that minor chin scar you did microdermabrasion on, I haven’t had anything else done. Isn’t that false advertising?”

“Not at all,” he argued. “If you had never been a client, then that would be false advertisement. But you’re perfect, Callie. You’re beautiful, the camera will love you, and you’ll be on billboards across town. Tell me you don’t…

 

 



My Review

Noah Foster is a plastic surgeon who is a sweet guy who is hurting from a sad past that involved his fiancé who has passed away.   Callie Matthews works for him at his office as a receptionist.  She very badly wants to be an actress. Noah wants Callie to pose for a Photo shoot for his practice.  On the way to the photo shoot Callie gets into a terrible car accident that leaves her scarred.  Noah wants to help Callie as both a doctor and a man.  Throughout the book the chemistry between the two jumps out at you. 

 5/5
