Indecent Proposal

Manwhore. That's what the board of directors--and the tabloids--thinks of billionaire bachelor Reese Crane. Ordinarily he couldn't care less, but his playboy past is preventing the board from naming him CEO of Crane Hotels. Nothing--and no one--will keep him from his life's legacy. They want a settled man to lead the company? Then that's exactly what he'll give them.

Merina Van Heusen will do anything to get her parents' funky boutique hotel back--even marry cold-as-ice-but-sexy-as-hell Reese Crane. It's a simple business contract--six months of marriage, absolute secrecy, and the Van Heusen is all hers again. But when sparks fly between them, their passion quickly moves from the boardroom to the bedroom. And soon Merina is living her worst nightmare: falling in love with her husband.
A former job-hopper, Jessica Lemmon resides in Ohio with her husband and rescue dog. She holds a degree in graphic design currently gathering dust in an impressive frame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot Damn! Remember when you were a child, and you got your mitts on a tasty treat? Remember the barely restrained manner in which you opened said tasty treat? That is exactly how I feel every time I get my mitts on a, Jessica Lemmon release! The cover alone for this book reduced me to a giddy child! Reese Crane is a businessman through and through. He doesn't have time for emotional entanglements. But there’s something that even his readily available billions can't secure for him. Now that his father is retiring, he wants the position of CEO of Crane Hotels. In order to obtain that he needs an image makeover. He needs to shed his playboy persona. Merina Van Heusen wants nothing more than to secure her families’ legacy, The Van Heusen Hotel. But the " Sewer rat in a suit " has bought her hotel out from under her. Reese offers her an opportunity to get the hotel back; marry him for six months, help him show the Board of Directors that he's settled down and can represent his family's company...then it's all hers. This is a modern spin on a marriage of convenience. This is a well loved trope of mine! These two think they're going to treat this arrangement as a business transaction; feelings and mushy stuff won't get in the way. Silly silly people. The heart has its own agenda! I really liked, Merina! She has such a spunk about her. She's smart, stubborn, and has a sense of humour that constantly put a smile on my face. Reese is her exact opposite. He's all business all the time. His life is organized and least that's what everyone believes. He's hurting. He's struggling with life changing events from his past. When, Merina comes barreling into his life, his world is knocked off its a fantastic way! These two together are a hoot! They build a fragile friendship and reluctantly move to lovers. Sex muddles everything up, right? But lust is often stronger than the conscience. And thank goodness for that! I was biting my nails for these two to finally make the bedsprings creak! In true, Jessica Lemmon fashion, I wasn't disappointed. She writes sultry love scenes that make can make your cheeks flush. I really loved that even during intimate moments there was some humour. It was well placed. It didn't detract from the love scenes, it made those postcoital moments beautiful and funny! Jessica Lemmon is a brilliant writer. She writes characters that I want to invest my thoughts and time in. I want to really know them. I'm always sad when I hit the last page. I feel like I have to say goodbye to friends. She also has the uncanny ability to make me laugh on one page, and then bawl on another. She does those " black scenes", the moment you think that the characters can't come back from, like a boss! Ms. Lemmon tears my damn heart to shreds and puts it back together flawlessly. I'm excited that this is book #1 in the series. It means that I have a lot more awesomeness to look forward to! I can't wait to see, Tag Crane fall hard for his heroine. Of course, he won't go down easily, but the journey will be outstanding! I'm just going to throw out there that you should read EVERYTHING that Jessica Lemmon has written. She's that damn good! I've never walked away from one of her books feeling anything less than fantastic. 5 Stars (A)
