Review: Her Backup Boyfriend by Ashlee Mallory

Title: Her Backup Boyfriend

Author: Ashlee Mallory

Synopsis:

One little white lie leads to more than she planned…

Straight-laced lawyer Kate Matthews always plays by the rules. But when her ex gets engaged and a big promotion is on the line at work, she blurts out that she has a new boyfriend. And now that she’s proved she “has a life” outside of work, everything is perfect. Except for one teeny little detail—there is no boyfriend. And now Kate’s liable for her little white lie…

Dominic Sorensen is hot, charming, and very definitely not Kate’s type. But not only does Dominic want to help Kate renovate her home, he’s also willing to play “boyfriend.” All he wants in return is a little pro bono work for his sister. Now instead of Mr. Right, Kate has a delectable Mr. Fix-It-Right—and some unbelievable sexual chemistry. And if falling for Dominic is a breach of contract, Kate is guilty as charged…

***MY REVIEW***

5 out of 5 stars

Had this book not been on sale, I probably would have never given this book a chance because I tend to prefer my romances to be more on the steamier side, but I'm really happy that I did give it a shot because this book really was a wonderful romance and I loved it.

This book was one of those feel-good romances that just sticks with you. Kate and Dominic where both some great and likable characters and I found myself really invested in the sweet romance that developed between the two of them. What started out as a fake-relationship to help Kate get a job and help Dominic get his sister some legal help ended up being one of the most enjoyable and heart-warming relationships I've ever read in a romance.

On top of the swoon-worthy romance, I really loved how family-oriented this book was. The rest of the Sorensen family were just as great to read about as Kate and Dominic. And of course I just loved the plot of this book and how it really chronicled a change in Kate from workaholic lawyer who kind of just did what was expected of her to be "successful" to a woman who finally takes matters into her own hands and stands up for herself in order to get her HEA and what a satisfying HEA it was.
