He'll make her an offer she can't refuse...

Actress Tess McKenzie is performing in the Tenth Circle of Showbiz Hell-dinner theater. All she really wants is to start a theater of her own. Then Tess receives an offer she can't refuse. She'll get her funding...if she pretends to be the fiancée to her nemesis, Texan property tycoon Hunter Dade. If she's going to pull this off, she'll need all the luck she can get. Break a leg, indeed.

On the verge of a big business deal, Hunter needs to hire a fiancée. He hasn't quite forgiven Tess for ruining his wedding, but when their chemistry goes from combative to straight-up lust, the "no sex" clause in their mutually beneficial arrangement is tested. Which is a serious problem, because if Tess isn't careful, she'll go from breaking a leg to breaking her heart...

EVEN THE SCORE is a super hot and wonderfully romantic story.

Tess needs money to open her own theater, and when Hunter Dade offers to pay her to pretend to be his fiancee so he could close the deal on a property he's been eyeing for some time, she agrees. She and Hunter have seriously hot chemistry, but she never expected to develop feelings for him...

Both Tess and Hunter are unforgettable characters. Hunter especially is not only hot, but the way he protects the women in his life will just melt the heart (and panties) off any woman. I like the way the author slowly peels back the layers and we see through Tess's eyes the person that Hunter is truly underneath. That man is a keeper!

Aside from this book being hot, I like the instances of when each character starts to develop feelings for the other, and the normal everyday things they share make the romance more believable and realistic.

He stabbed a pepper in her frittata, and she dueled with his fork adorably when he went in a second time.

The author's writing style is smart and witty, refreshingly different. If there's a complaint, it's that the story's too short! Fortunately, the second book in the series will be available soon!
