    What happens when a boxer finds chemistry with a geek?

    Parker Brown can’t believe she needs to hire a fake boyfriend. When she landed her dream job in renewable energy, she thought she’d be entering a world at the forefront of progressive thinking. But the head boss prefers to promote employees who are “settled.” Thankfully, she’s found the perfect candidate, a fellow intellectual looking for some quick cash. What Parker gets is his protective big brother—Rhys Morgan. The tall, muscled ex-boxer with a foul mouth shows up just as her boss does, and now she’s stuck with the manipulative jerk.

    Responsibility weighs heavily on Rhys. Now permanently out of the ring, he’s trying to hold together his late father’s gym and keep his younger brother, Dean, on the straight and narrow. To save Dean from himself, Rhys takes his place, ready to give this society girl a piece of his mind. Instead, he finds an opportunity. Even though they can hardly stand each other, posing as Parker’s boyfriend is a win-win deal. She gets to keep her job, and he’ll charm her star-struck boss into sponsoring his gym.

    Problem is, they can barely keep their hands off each other. And what started as an easy deal isn’t so easy anymore. Because what future can a rough ex-boxer, afraid to open his heart, and a polished society geek, who has sworn off real relationships, possibly have?

    They say opposites attract. These opposites are about to combust on impact.


    I'm a big fan of Samantha Young's writing and now I'm in love with Kristen Callihan .... The Perfect Match!

    Parker is used to working in a predominantly male environment but when her boss says she needs to be committed to someone in order to be hired, she gets worried. After all, for him, only those who show commitment in their personal lives can be a person who is committed to the company. Her direct boss ends up implying that this requirement is a fact because the company depends on the capital that the millionaire boss is investing in them. 

    Parker is a shy and quiet geek who likes to work and is keen to get hired after the trial contract period. As she does not want to get involved then she think it is most viable to hire someone until she is hired in the company.

    The big problem is that Rhys is all good and more than she imagined as soon as she met him.

    Rhys is a boxer who stepped out of the ring after a tragedy struck him and realizing that his father's gym was in dire financial straits, decided to devote himself to keeping his father's dream. But this effort is not easy at all, so when he sees the chance of getting an investor through Parker's acquaintances, he swallows his pride and agrees to be with the girl at company events.

    Parker and Rhys together are great and even though they are so different they realize how focused they are on their goals and how they can help each other and give each other strength. Loved this unlikely and cute couple.

    I confess that what tied me most to the book was knowing how would end Parker's story in the company and what would happen to her boss ... Wow! I loved how it all ended and was overjoyed by Parker's behavior.

    Sou super fã da escrita de Samantha Young e agora me apaixonei por Kristen Callihan....The Perfect Match!

    Parker está acostumada a trabalhar num ambiente predominantemente masculino mas quando seu chefe diz que ela precisa estar comprometida com alguém para poder ser contratada, ela fica preocupada. Afinal para ele só quem demonstra comprometimento na vida pessoal pode ser uma pessoa comprometida com a empresa. Seu chefe direto acaba dando a entender que esse exigência é um fato pois a empresa depende do capital que o chefe milionário está investindo na empresa. Parker é uma geek tímida e quieta que gosta de trabalhar e está emprenhada em ser contratada depois do período de contrato de experiência. Como não quer se envolver então acha que o mais viável é contratar alguém até ser efetivada na empresa.

    O grande problema é que  Rhys é tudo de bom e muito mais do que ela imaginou logo que o conheceu.

    Rhys é um boxer que se afastou dos ringues depois que uma tragédia o atingiu e ao perceber que o ginásio do pai estava em péssima situação financeira, resolveu se dedicar a reerguer e manter o sonho do pai.  Mas essa empreitada não está nada fácil então quando vê a chance de conseguir um investidor através dos conhecidos de Parker, ele engole seu orgulho e aceita ser acompanhante da garota nos eventos da empresa.

    Parker e Rhys juntos são ótimos e mesmo sendo tão diferentes percebem como  são focados em seus objetivos e como conseguem se ajudar e dar força um ao outro. Amei esse casal improvável e fofo.

    Agora confesso que o que mais me prendeu ao livro foi saber como terminaria a história de Parker na empresa e o que iria acontecer com o chefe dela...Nossa! Eu adorei como tudo terminou e fiquei radiante com o comportamento de Parker.

    5/5 estrelas
