Jill Michaels prides herself on one thing: being independent. That is until her daughter gets into an elite school, and she needs money more than ever. It seems her fairy godmother—aka her deceased Grammy—has granted that wish in the form of one-fourth of her estate. The only catch? She must be married by her thirtieth birthday. In two months. 

Aaron Collins is fresh out of the army and back in town to help his father’s failing business. When he runs into Jill at a hotel where she’s attending a single’s mixer, he makes sure she doesn’t make it past his room and into another guy’s arms. When he hears about her predicament, he has a plan: they’ll get married and keep it a secret. And maybe have a little sexy fun until he leaves towns for his new job. 

But letting go of the woman of his dreams may be harder than Aaron could have ever imagined.

     I love a book when you start laughing right out the shoot. Not to mention you know that there are rebellious daughters of southern women whose soul mission in life is to drive their mother’s crazy.  Their mother’s mission is to correct their offspring in all areas of their life.  Plus, everyone else’s children that are not doing it right too.  ‘Well, Bless Your Heart.’ Is a catch phrase that will have you laughing too?
     When you grow up next door to a guy who was the sweetest shyest guy you ever met life can’t help but be good.  Especially, if he is one of your best friends.  Can you help it that he just so happened to have some of the hottest friends ever?  Yet, they ended up being some of the biggest jerks ever too.  So, crying on his shoulder more than once was pretty often.
     Aaron Collins for being one of the best guys around and a football player was terribly shy.  He and Jill Michaels hung out all the time.  Then eleven years ago he left for boot camp and she hasn’t seen him since.  Although, she did write him for a while his letters just stopped coming once he was deployed for the first time.
     Until the weekend after her Granny’s will was read.  Where she’s told she will get one fourth of her will if she marries by her thirtieth birthday.  But Granny only left her two months to find a husband.  (How inconvenient of her.)  Now you see Jill is one independent single mother of a seven-year-old, Emily, who has a brain of Doogie Howser in second grade.
     And with Emily’s father cutting out on them before the epidural wore off then dying last year but before he passed he stole her ATM and charged up her card leaving her in debt.  Real cool of him.  So, now with Emily in the elite brain school for gifted children, things are tough.  Granny’s money would really help her.  But she is not willing to sell her soul.
     But her mom and two besties Kate and Mia see it differently.  In fact, Kate and Mia sign her up for a singles mixer for an adult sleepover at a hotel.  Not a good thing with one guy talking about alien constellations, another taxidermy and showing his pet he stuffed now less.  That was just a little much for her.  When Kate left to go to her room for something and didn’t return Jill wasn’t happy.
     She wants to throw in the towel.  But Kate gives her a room number of where she and Mia are staying since they got a different room just in case she got lucky.  When she gets to that room guess who she finds there behind that door?  None other than her long lost bestie Aaron.  And boy has he changed.  He grew up and his no pack turned into an eight pack.  He skipped right over six the army doesn’t mess around.  Let me tell you he is not shy anymore either and she finds out his ass doesn’t belong to Uncle Sam anymore and that ass by the way you could bounce quarters off of it but she wants to do a little more than that to him.
     When he asks her to dinner to go back to a saving her from having to go back to a singles mixer would be great.  Which he just couldn’t understand her need, to attend.  (What are all the men blind back in town?)  Because he thought she was gorgeous.  She was not going to explain it to him either.  It was just too embarrassing.  How lame her life had become that she need a man any man in two months’ time to marry her.  And it was her dead Granny pimping her out.
     After one night with him, she wishes it could be him.  But they had agreed to one night no strings.  Can they stick to that?  Read and see you will not be disappointed.  You will totally enjoy.  A Very funny couple who are learning old is new.  I give this: 5 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.
