Publisher's Summary

She invented him! At least she thought she had!
Kit Forrester lived a life of lies - so what was one more? When her first vacation ever sank like the Titanic - she couldn't tell her friends THAT! So she did what she always did: She lied. And told everyone about her fabulous five-day cruise. Her days of fun in the sun and moonlit nights with the man of her dreams - Rafe Morgan, tall, handsome, incredibly sexy and successful. And well, now they were engaged! There was just one six-foot-two, 230-pound problem - Rafe Morgan did exist, and he wanted answers.
Retired Navy SEAL and Texas business tycoon Rafe Morgan was sure he was being set up by his suddenly acquired fiancee. He had spent 20 years in the navy and was trained to handle anything - until he came up against one volatile New York redhead with wicked curves and the world's hardest ass! And then he saw her sex lair and was more than willing to be Caught in a Trap. And to set one of his own!

3.5* FOR HER THERE WAS NO HOPE.. BUT HE HAD A PLAN

Kit had an abusive childhood where she had to scheme, hide, plan, outwit and lie in order to keep herself sane, safe and survive the Hell she was in. Now, as an adult, she's free from that tortuous world she is smart, strong, confident, comfortable and she has a successful career but she longed for more.... a dream and one that included a Knight in Shining Armour that could make her inner demons go away.

Unfortunately, old habits die hard and when her friends come around to hear all about the cruise she'd just been on Kit found herself once again lying and invented a wild sexy romantic love story involving an imaginary boyfriend called Rafe Morgan. However, rather than the gossip dying down her lies got spun around the office and before she knew it people were congratulating her on her engagement. Days later at a Cocktail Party a smiling, sexy, handsome, alpha hunk comes striding towards her, swoops her backwards over his arm and passionately kisses her and declares he's missed her..... and his name.... Rafe Morgan.

The dooda really hits the fan this time and what ensues is witty banter, suspicions, fun, secrets, instant chemistry, misunderstandings, a pact, a game of cat and mouse and a love story as cunning and mega rich Rafe slowly ensnares the woman of his dreams. He did this by asking Kit to trust him, move in with him for just 5/6 weeks spinning her a lie about doing it all to make some other woman jealous but it was really Kit that he was deeply attracted to. There's loveable secondary characters ready to welcome her into Rafe's family (including ex Navy SEAL Rafe himself) but Kit, being a realist, dared not dream, she knew all good things must come to an end for her, she was just a pawn in Rafe's game to make a woman jealous and so, for her, time quickly ran out.

Worth a credit? A light, totally implausible, contemporary romance (but hey this is romantic fiction) which had some sad, heartbreaking and nasty memories for both of them about child abuse and the devastating mental and physical damage of war. But thankfully the compassion, humor and tenderness between them brought the plot nicely back to present day attractions, passions, lust and hope. Dual POV's about a man who felt he had found his soul mate and he just needed to convince her of that by any way he could. The narrator was ok - just ok. Undecided about the credit but definitely a sale purchase.

predictable but entertaining

Enjoyed the book very much. The storyline has been done a million times, but adding the friends and family gave it its own twist.
Easy to listen to.
