C 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 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 mem. He assests of a deceased family member of the company Grace is expected to itemized and get the value of a giant art and wine collectionCallan is the nephew of the deceased and he encounters Grace in his uncle s apartment An agreement is made that Callan will work with Grace but not interfere or hinder her progress But Callan has an alterior m Honestly now thinking about it it made me uncomfortable reading how ashamed she was of being poor I mean it s one thing you get tired of working so much and barely make ends meet But it s something completely different to think that being poor is shameful and try to hide that fact from people because you can t allow people to find out how simple you are Like avoiding to take people to your house because you re embarrassed of where you live I was raised thinking nobody is better than anybody because of money What makes people better than others is behavior attitudes choices you make You re financial condition doesn t define you character She was embarrassed of eating her sandwich in front of the male mc and she would rather eat outside and being cold than eating inside because God forbid what would he think if he saw her eating a peanut butter sandwich I can t relate to shallow vain people like this So yes I save myself from become annoyed Zero chemistry I can t connect with these characters I don t see lust much less love between the 2 Cliche story about a poor girl and the rich guy She needs the Everwar (Cal Leandros, job to pay the bills and support her sister Of course her hormones are out of control in the presence of the maleSeeing him in a towel is reason enough to forget what she was going to do and starting babbling Like one of my GR friends said why so much blushing and astonishment in seeing a naked man In her early to mid 20s she probably saw at least one naked man I assume Because she had lived with a man before Maybe he took showers like the old days wearing a white gown Who knowsBesides nothing happens in this book Every morning he makes coffee for them They work around the apt sorting the dead uncle s belongs She thinks about how poor she is and how she needs theob He regrets he did nothing productive with his rich ass She goes home to her sister He walks the dog and goes to sleep Rinse repeat This for over 30% of the book She was staring at me so I picked up the tamper and compressed the coffee grounds I fitted the filter into the grouphead and turned on the machine male mc Everything was dreary But at least I was wearing Chanel female mc priorities lol pathetic I didn t know where to look because there seemed to be nothing but stupendously hot hard male as far as the eye could see The towel hit him a few inches above his knees showcasing muscular thighs and calves His belly was a work of sculptural art all peaks and valleys and firm looking muscle I stared at first one flat nipple then the other Then somehow I managed to hinge my gaping aw shut and lift my gaze to his face from female mcWhat led to this when he offered her the coffee I almost forgot to close my fingers around the hot glass but some self preserving instinct kicked in at the last second from female mcIt still amazes me how a person can go from smart to extremely brainless stupid because of a man Is this supposed to be cute Or show how attracted she was to him Itfailed miserably because chemistry here is negative 10 So I decided DNF I m too annoyed and bored with this book If at 30% it didn t catch my interest of keeping turning the pages and see if something else happens I should do as much as cut my losses There is precious time was wasted here Sarina Bowen is an auto read author for me whilst Sarah Mayberry isn t I ve read as many of her books that haven t worked Versus Those That Have So those that have so ll admit to being interested in seeing how Temporary would work out for me This man would be the death of me The foundations for a great story were there wealthy Aussie playboy Callan arrives in New York following the death of his beloved uncle to discover his callous mother has hired a temp Grace to create an inventory of her brother s estate He s grieving and determined to find the missing will his uncle wrote to stop his mother claiming everything she has a ob to do and can t risk it no matter how attracted to him she is as she s raising her younger sister on a shoestring budget It was all there for the taking yet I didn t get much of a connection from Grace and Callan for a good 5060% of the book which was a real shame as they were great characters No flirting no touching no eye fucking no dirty talk between nine and five And that includes lunch Everything good about this story came in the last 40% the depth and chemistry it was lacking the intimacy and some great humour courtesy of Grace s 15 year old sister Olivia And it was all this albeit late which saved it for me and the boredom dissipated boredom being something that never ever occurs when I read a Sarina Bowen book and I ve read many but it is something I ve experienced from Sarah Mayberry so I can t help but come to certain conclusions over why this was the case hiring Grace had been her greatest gift to me After turning the final page I don t think I d be too far off the mark in thinking that there may be another potential opportunity for these two authors involving Callan s sister Claire And whilst I didn t love this they ve done enough to piue my interest if this is the case Copy received in exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion 4 STARS The most beautiful man I ve ever seen is the one who can ruin everything A woman barely making ends meet and a playboy that holds a piece to one of the world s most powerful business empires couldn t possibly have anything in commonor could they I had ignored the fact that we could not have two wildly divergent lifestyles I had ignored everything and let myself get swept away Grace is barely keeping a roof

of attraction they for have one another As Callan Playboy fa ade begins to slip so too do Grace s career prospects I really enjoyed peeling back the layers and getting down under with Callan There s a vulnerable boyish charm to him and seeing that side to him was wholly endearing Whilst Grace s social predicament may have been a precarious one I was instantly enamoured by how resolute she is in making sure she is able to provide for her sisterI m really looking forward to from this duo Whilst I m well acuainted with the goodness that is Sarina Bowen it s always great to add a new author to the roster as I feel I have with Sarah Mayberry The most beautiful man I ve ever seen is the one who can ruin everything I love Sarina Bowen and in my opinion her colabs with other authors have always

much The attraction and chemistry between the two was intense and even though they come from two different walks of life they worked well together Will they stand the test of time or will it all fizzle if Callan s snobby mother finds out What s going to happen with Grace s ob These were uestions I kept asking myself and the intrigue of what was going to happen meant I simply could not put this story down I m a 100% born and bred Aussie and I m always a little worried about reading stories with Australian characters whether the author will use correct slang and terminology synonymous with Australia Having an Aussie co write
