Overview

Plus One by Aleatha Romig

A fun, sexy new stand-alone from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

He's sexy and confident, the kind of man every woman notices. You know, the one with the to-die-for body and panty-melting smirk. And then there's the way his designer suits drape over his broad shoulders and big...well, we've all heard the rumors, the ones that say he's up for any challenge.

But I can't see him that way. He's my boss-technically one of the owners of the company where I work-and definitely not in my league. Men like him don't notice women like me, and they don't date them.

And I don't date men like him.

Until that one time that I catch him in a compromising position when I'm also in need of a last-minute date for a wedding...and then it's not real. It's blackmail.

For one weekend, he's my plus-one.

Beautiful and unobtainable.

From the moment she walked into my office with those stunning blue eyes and crazy sensual curves, she's been on my mind. Three years and never once has she acted interested in me. Usually I flash a million-dollar smile and women fall to their knees, some literally.

Not her.

Then on the occasion that I agree to let another woman do that-fall to her knees-guess who happens to catch us?

It may not be the most conventional way to get on her radar, but I didn't get this far in business without knowing when to seize an opportunity. If this sexy little firecracker with perfectly kissable lips thinks she can blackmail me into attending her cousin's wedding, I'm going to jump at the chance to be her plus-one.

You love her darker side. Now it's time to meet Leatha, the lighter side of Aleatha, as she trades her renowned twists and turns for laughs and love with this sexy new stand-alone romance, PLUS ONE.

Good story had me laughing and hooked.

This was a new author to me. Wow, what a great book; I loved this from start to finish. This was an hilarious read, with many laugh out loud moments that had me almost in tears at times. Ms. Romig's characters came to life whilst I was reading this book. I loved the quirkiness and although at times annoying members of Kimbra's family; her grandmother Helen is such a hoot with her mother Judy not far behind. There was smoking hot romance, humour as well as edge of your seat tension as you wondered if their charade would be found out. Duncan is sexy and confident, the kind of man every woman notices and believe me not only has Kimbra noticed but all the women in her family have too.  Until fate and a little blackmail brings Duncan and Kimbra together, neither of them are aware that the feelings they have for each other are reciprocated. Kimbra takes advantage of her knowledge to coerce Duncan into being her Plus One for her cousin's wedding; not knowing that he has had many fantasies about her since she went to work for his company 3 years ago. Duncan knows an opportunity when he sees one and jumps at the chance. What transpires is a “fantasy” weekend of epic proportions. However, what happens when they leave the family homestead and return to their “real” lives, will fantasy become their reality or will the dream burst?  I believe that Aleatha Romig is known for her darker writing, but Plus One by Leatha, the lighter side of Aleatha, as she calls herself is certainly a book I highly recommend. It was an absolute pleasure to read and I will certainly be on the look out for more of Leatha.

Fun romp as Kimbra thinks she has blackmailed her boss into acting as her plus-one at her cousin's wedding. Duncan does not do anything unless he wants to and he wants to be with Kimbra so he goes along with her. They learn a lot about each other and themselves. I enjoyed these two and the sex was hot! I loved watching Duncan realize that he does not want the weekend to end their relationship. Kimbra is afraid of being hurt. I loved watching him convince her to give them a chance. Their pasts come back to haunt them a little but it all turns out right in the end. Kimbra's family was a blast, especially her grandmother. I would read the lighter side of this author any time..

This is the first book that I have read by Aleatha Romig, but I think maybe I need to check out some of her other books. I loved Plus One, it was a lighthearted, fun, easy read without a lot of angst or drama. I loved Duncan Willis, ok I know he is a player, but when he sets his mind on someone he wants, he doesn't give up. Kimbra, or Kimberly Ann, is smart, beautiful, sassy and fun. She thinks that she is forcing Duncan to be her plus one at the wedding of her cousin, but he knows different. The other characters in this book were a real treat, especially her Grandma Helen, she really had me laughing out loud. So if you love romance on the funny side, give this book a chance, you won't be sorry, it is a very enjoyable, sweet, sexy and fun romance. I laughed out loud, teared up a time or two, and totally swooned over Duncan. A big bouquet of five blooming, colorful stars for this one!

Plus One By: Aleatha Romig ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5 Star Review by Kristie K The softer side of Aleatha Romig is a flirty, fun, and sexy diversion…definitely worth the trip… Plus One takes us on a charming adventure in the “fake boyfriend” genre, with enchanting characters, humor, wit, and lots of sexy. Kimbra Jones is a small town girl that left her country roots behind to follow her dreams in the big city. As a HR manager of a large pharmaceutical logistics company in New York City, Kimbra handles all manner of HR and employee issues…including those involving “indiscretions” - even if the offender is her incredibly gorgeous, definitely sexy, and incredibly mesmerizing boss and CEO. Faced with a moral and personal dilemma, Kimbra knows she must do what’s right and report the incident as she would for any other employee…but there are more pressing matters…finding a plus-one for her cousins upcoming wedding in rural Indiana. Her solution? Confront the boss with his indiscretion, and blackmail him into being her date for her cousins wedding. Simple…right? Duncan Willis is a reputed playboy, hot as f**k, incredibly successful, and able to snag just about any woman he sets his sights on. Kimbra is the woman that caught his eye three years ago when she first walked into his office, and the one woman that hasn’t fallen at his feet. When she walks into his office to confront him about an indiscretion he was involved in, her solution plays her right into his long waiting hands, and he isn’t a man to turn down a perfect opportunity. Determined to make the most of his situation, Duncan accepts her terms, but not without some terms of his own… OMG!! Aleatha Romig completely blew me away with her softer side! This book captured the sweet, innocent nature of Kimbra and her upbringing, while throwing in plenty of wit, humor, and pure delight. I fell head over heels in love with EVERY character. From Kimbra and Duncan themselves, to her family, their friends…every last one. Ms. Romig has always excelled at creating a plausible and amazing storyline and plot, and Plus One is no exception. I think it is safe to say that Ms. Romig’s softer side is just as incredible and captivating as her dark side. It is very possible that Aleatha Romig is the perfect blend of dark AND light… Kristie K

I've read Aleatha's Consequence and Infidelity series. This was a lighter side and it was awesome!! Very funny and hot. Duncan is drool worthy. Kimbra's family is hilarious, especially grandma Helen. I hope Trevor and Shana get their story.

A huge fan of Aleatha Romig, I was excited to see her venture out of her darker suspenseful romances and embrace what she called her lighter side. Duncan Willis co-owns the company where Kimbra Jones is employed in HR. Kimbra thinks Mr. Willis is sex on a stick, but is shocked to find him in a potentially compromising position with another employee. Kimbra needs a date to her cousin's wedding back home in rural Indiana. Could she possibly blackmail her head boss into a weekend as her plus one, to save face in front of her family, whom she assumes thinks less of her because she left small town Indiana for the big city to pursue her career? Unbeknownst to Kimbra, Duncan Willis has had his eye on her since the first time she walked into the office three years earlier. He's more than willing to let her think she's blackmailing him into this weekend affair, in order to spend time with the woman he has the hots for. From there, the hilarity ensues. Kimbra's Grandma Helen's comments alone are a reason for reading this story! Follow Kimbra and Duncan as they spend a long holiday weekend really getting to know each other, in the confines of an Indiana farmhouse filled with plenty of characters. Sometimes it's not all as it seems. As much as I love Aleatha Romig's darker side, she has just as much talent in writing romantic comedies. I look forward to more of both from this author.

Plus One is the first Lighter book by Aleatha Romig and I found it to be a breath of fresh air. I thought that Ms. Romig did a great job of make me laugh and swoon during the book. Grandma Helen really is a hoot and I think I am going to be like her in my older years. No Filter Needed! I liked the dynamic between the two main characters Duncan and Kimbra. I can't wait to see what else is on the Lighter side of Aleatha! Can fantasies become real? I look at my toothbrush differently now!

I was so excited to read this and discover the lighter side of Aleatha Romig. So, I dive into this book and come to a screeching halt at the beginning of the book at the "Author's Note" only to discover, I already have read her lighter side. Turns out this master of dark romance knows how to weave a secret into a book just as well as she knows how to keep a secret alter ego pen name in real life! Aleatha Starts out this book with a confession of her own. She was one half of an author duo writing under a pen name delivering some of my favorite hot, quick and dirty novellas! Plus One is a re-written version of Duncan: The Deal by Jade Sinner! The premise remains the same. Kimbra needs to a date to her cousin's wedding back home. She blackmails the boss, Duncan, into being her date after an awkward bathroom encounter. Of so she thinks. As we've seen before, many the relationship starts out as a ruse but how quickly the lines of truth and lie become a blur. I did a quick run through of the previous published novella for comparison. Because this is a full-length novel, there is much more opportunity to give the characters and their connection much more depth. We get more of the backstory of both Kimbra and Duncan, removing that element of insta-love. In true Aleatha Romig style, she takes what was a simple twist in the novella, and makes it much deeper and more complex. We get more of Kimbra's wildly entertaining family with their love of sex toys and Amazon Prime. I'm now a firm believer that every romantic comedy needs a dirty grandma. The over the top elements from the novella were re-worked as well, yet still leaving the comedy of those elements intact. Some of the "dirtier" sex scenes were toned down in favor of creating a more meaningful connection between the characters, but I wouldn't have minded if they were kept in. Overall, it's safe to say Aleatha can write light and funny just as well as she writes dark and intense. They are both sexy in their own way and I really hope she is going to re-work more of these stories!

“Sometimes…the easy way doesn’t have the same destination.”“We’d been together, united, the closest two people can be, but today we wanted more.”“As our hands connect, a part of me feels complete. I couldn’t explain my need to touch her, to be in contact, if I were asked. It’s a new feeling that I can’t dismiss.”“I’m lost to this man, to the timbre of his voice and ministrations of his hands, as I do as he commands.” OMG! OMG! OMG!! Seriously! This book! I’ve been following Aleatha Romig for quite some time now. I fell in love with her dark characters, and her suspenseful and sinful story-lines. When I heard that she was writing a lighter romance, I won’t lie, I was a bit skeptical. Could she do it? Could she write something light and fun and swoon worthy???? Well, I am here to tell you, she can! The queen of dark and sinful romance delivered a swoon worthy, unforgettable, light romance. I am blown away in the absolute best way possible. Plus One exceeded my expectations and gave me a romance beyond my wildest dreams. From page one I was intrigued and captivated by the characters. The plot was a lot of fun and you could just tell, this story was going to take you for a fun and entertaining ride. The chemistry between our two main characters, Kimbra and Duncan was intense and had been building for quite some time and when an opportunity of a lifetime presents itself, Duncan would be a fool to pass it up. Duncan was everything that I wanted in an Aleatha Romig hero. He was sexy. He was determined. He is never told no and is not afraid to go after what he wants. However, he is also sweet, kind, caring. He is the perfect book boyfriend that not only knows how to please a woman, but is the definition of swoon-worthy. He is the perfect match for Kimbra. Kimbra is the kinda girl that I think we can all relate to at one time or another. She loves her crazy family and will do anything to please them. She is afraid to let them down and is afraid to let them see that she’s not perfect. She is a caring and strong woman. She is hardworking and an amazing friend. And when she falls in love, she loves with everything that she is. I loved seeing Kimbra around her crazy family and could not get enough of her Grandma Helen…Grandma Helen, you were a total riot. I could not stop laughing from your antics, and I think every family needs a grandma like you to keep things interesting!. Plus One is an honest to goodness fun read. It is sexy. It is funny. It is sinful in it’s own way. It is easy to relate to and entertaining as ever. The characters are a lot of fun and will have you swooning one minute and in fits of laughter the next. This book took me by total surprise and I loved every single second of it. I truly enjoyed meeting the lighter side to Aleatha Romig and can not wait to see what other lighter romances she has in store for us next.

Duncan and Kimbra are a mess, but an irresistible one all the same. It was hard to stop laughing long enough to experience the next gem this clueless duo threw my way. He's the boss. - His fancy suits, unlimited funds and animal magnetism make him a catch, but his rep screams "Guard your heart." She's living the dream. - A job that she loves. A city that has endless possibilities and a boss that stars in some of her wildest fantasies. Her hormones are yelling "Go for it!" but her brain is screaming, "Run Girl!" Which voice will she listen to? Ms. Romig stretches her comedic chops as she tickles the funny bone. Plus One had me wondering why discovering this author took me so long.
