I Love When You Canlove when you can tell who wrote what When the flow is so great you would never know That is how Temporary was Sarina Bowen is one of this authors I will always ead I love her work Sarah Mayberry is a new to me author I thought they did a fantastic job with this book I m already looking forward to from this duo Grace is working for a temporary agency hoping to land a permanent job It s important to her to find steady work She s young and living in NYC but most i IT S ALIVESurviving 100 days with Callan WalkerI think it s easy to be selfish when it seasy to be selfish Do you know what I mean I ll give you an example I can t cook so hubby does most of the cooking in our house Now when I say I can t cook I m kind of fibbing I can cook just not very well or not as well as hubby does So while hubby is cooking dinner each night I happily spend the time eading Am I being selfish Maybe I should keep him company or could help chop vegetables or something But I don t I don t because it s easy to be selfishCallan Walker has found it bloody easy to be selfish He s a good looking bloke with plenty of money and a jet setting lifestyle The life he s lived has been fun and pretty frivolous Why change a good thing If it s not broken don t mess with it And if it happens to piss your overbearing controlling mother offwell that s even betterCallan s life takes a pretty big nosedive when Jack his beloved uncle passes away It makes him stop and assess where his life is going When he finds out that his estranged mother took it upon herself to have Jack cremated with no funeral Callan is livid He decides he better head to New York and oversees that Jack s last wishes were honoured Imagine his disgust when he finds out his mother hired a stranger to pack up Jack s goods and calculate his assets for a uick sale Over Callan s bodyor when Callan meets the strangerunder his bodyGrace has a temporary job she HAS to keep She has the sole care of her 15 year old sister and needs the temp job to become permanent She s determined to ignore the extremely hot Aussie and his sexy accent especially considering he s the boss s son Grace is sure that his flirting is a ploy to get whatever he wantsand it may just workI eally enjoyed Temporary It made me laugh seeing the American character swooning over Callan s hot accent HAHAHAHA I ll have to make a ecording of hubby to see if we can make my overseas friends swoon If I sweet talk him we can get him to say Bloody Hell a few times or maybe
even get him to offer to shout us a beer buy a beer As anget him to offer to shout us a beer buy a beer As an myself I can vouch that Callan is the eal deal I ve met Callan or blokes like him Actually that s a lie I can t say I know too many Aussie blokes with six pack abs unfortunately They must be all hiding overseas Temporary kept my attention from start to finish There were plenty of scenes that packed an emotional punch Both Callan and Grace have pretty messed up mothers at completely different ends of the scale Callan s mother is a woman who loves work over everything else She s controlling manipulative and evil Grace s mother is not thereliterally She s a drug addict who chose that life over her children and now it s Grace s esponsibility to aise her sister Olivia As a mother myself I found it very hard to elate or imagine acting in either way I m far from perfect but I do love my kids unconditionally an. The most beautiful man I've ever seen is the same one who can uin everything The first time I lay eyes on Callan Walker I know he’ll be trouble With his smug grin hot Aussie accent and thousand dollar shoes he’s just the kind of ich guy who always gets what he wants And he wants two things a night of sin and my cooperation as he outmaneuvers his powerful mother to take control of his uncle’s esta. ,
D want only their happinessThe spark between Callan and Grace was evident from the very start Considering Grace s need for her job she held out as long as she could I understood her logic of why she eventually caved Even on your hardest days facing the toughest battles a little time out for yourself should be a treat to yourself She didn t plan on forever Grace just wanted a bit of a spark to brighten her day Turns out that spark lit uite the inferno for both of them Temporary was a great story about finding love when you e feeling lonely Callan because he d just lost the one family member he espected and loved and Grace because she was struggling with the pressure of aising her sister on a temp s salary Two very different people living very different lives finding a connection that neither could deny It wasn t easy and it was definitely bumpy Luckily Callan can make a mean lah tay that s a latte I m trying to sound out how I say it and offer an Iced VoVo bikkies to tempt your taste budsand help you forget he s a drongoI will definitely be back for from this author duo and by that ending there s hopefully already in the works Stacey is Sassy eceived an advanced copy of this story The copy provided is not the final copy and may be subject to edits and changes 4 STARS The most beautiful man I ve ever seen may be subject to edits and changes 4 STARS The most beautiful man I ve ever seen the one who can uin 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 oof over her head while taking care of her teenage sister With an addict for a mother and a father long out of the picture Grace is all her sister Olivia has A temp job for the Walker empire is exactly the chance that she needs The possibility of turning it into a permanent position is what she hopes But finding herself at the beck and call of the powerful and cold head of the business is not what she expects When her assignment is to make sure that the estate of her boss s ecently passed brother are documented and uickly taken care of the last thing she needs is the meddling of the prodigal son He wasn t looking to strike up a thing with a cash strapped temp who acted as guardian to her teen sister and I was not looking to have a fling with a playboy ladies man I found way way too likeable Callah has left behind everything that made him a Walker A uthless mother that cares nothing for his happiness and a sister blindly serving his mother s whims his beloved uncle was the only person that showed him any love He ll be damned if he allows his estate and life to be packed up in boxes with a cold efficiency that only his mother is capable of The one thing he doesn t anticipate is the beautiful temp sent to do his mother s bidding No flirting no touching no eye fucking no dirty talk between nine and five And that includes lunch Temporary was a slow build that admittedly I struggled a bit to get into at first The first 30% eally sets everything up
but at a pace that didn t uite hook me Iat a pace that didn t uite hook me I immediately fell for the main characters There was always endearing about both Grace and Callan Perhaps it was the fact that there s so much to them than first meets the eye Callan is not the typical bad boy and playboy Te I can’t afford either one I’m the only thing standing between my little sister and the foster care system He may have money and charm on his side but I have something even powerful pure desperation This temp job at his mother’s company can become a full time job for me It has to But when Callan’s eyes ake over my body sometimes I forget my obligations His piercing gaze finds the fun optimisti. .Immediately Fell For The Mainfell for the main There was always
Hat you expect This is a man with
plenty of depth to him and the youof depth to him and the you out about him the harder you fall for him Grace is a woman that s barely getting by but there s this tenacity to her that you can t help but espect She s doing her best and try as she might to ignore the pull to the handsome man that she has no business getting involved with inevitably it proves to be too much Don t get used to it This is only temporary The secondary characters of Claire and Olivia added to the mix perfectly and come the second half I was hooked This was a delicious slow burn omance with characters that you can t help but oot for It was swoony sexy humorous and utterly endearing ARC courtesy of publisher in exchange for an honest eviewFind me on Sarina Bowen is an auto ead author for me whilst Sarah Mayberry isn t I ve ead as many of her books that haven t worked versus those that have so I 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 hiredarrives in New York following the death of his beloved uncle to discover his callous mother has hired 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 job to do and can t isk it no matter how attracted to him she is as she s aising 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 eal shame as they were great characters No flirting no touching No Eye Fucking No Dirty Talk Between Nine And Five eye fucking no dirty talk between nine and five 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 ead a Sarina Bowen book and I ve ead 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 eceived in exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion Honestly now thinking about it it made me uncomfortable eading 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 e embarrassed of where you live I was aised thinking nobody is better than anybody because of money What makes people better than others is behavior attitudes choices you make You e financial condition doesn t define you character She was embarrassed of eating her sandwich in front of the male mc and she would ather eat outside and being cold than eating inside because God forbid 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.
