Part-time journalist Beth Styles has been assigned the terrible task of reporting on one of Seattle's most eligible bachelors. All she has to do is get in, get the story, and get out. Everything is going fine, until she opens her big mouth and challenges the man of the hour to a bet. Thank goodness the only thing on the line is her career. And her integrity. Oh, and her hand in marriage...

Real estate mogul Parker Stephenson likes to be in control, and he hates the press, so he'll do anything to keep from ruining his reputation, including taking on this pretty, mouthy journalist. Even if that means promising - in front of thirty witnesses, no less - that he can make her fall in love with him in just 28 days. Too bad he can't seem to take charge of her, the way he takes charge of everything else..

I expected more, and was disappointed from beginning to end. This book did not keep my attention, started off intriguing but fizzled. The book lost me after the first few chapters and I kept thinking it would get better, but it never did.

Loved this story! Beth and Parker have strong chemistry and that, along with their verbal sparring kept me glued to the pages. Parker initially comes across as arrogant and chauvinistic with his boasting that he could train any woman to be a good wife, but we soon see that he has a soft side and he is almost endearing in his pursuit of Beth. There were several parts that had me chuckling aloud. A great book all around and definitely a must-read.

Training the Temp by Melinda Di Lorenzo...I absolutely loved this book so much fun to read. The characters are fun and likable, with all their bantering. Beth and Parker are perfect together will they figure it out before it is to late. This is my first book by Melinda Di Lorenzo and it will not be my last. I highly recommend this book, you will enjoy it as much as I did. I received a complimentary copy of this book from publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Training the Temp by Melinda Di Lorenzo made me smile. It was a funny plot, but it works. We have heard about it before, but it's well written with a good setting a great characters and the story has a nice flow that makes it a good read. I enjoyed reading this romance story.

I really enjoyed this story, heck I loved it! I am still laughing and shaking my head! From the first time that Beth met Parker. To all the moments they spent together, until the very end of the story. I enjoyed every emotional, hilarious, sexy part of this book and then some. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

This is the first book I've read by Melinda Di Lorenzo and I thoroughly enjoyed it! The chemistry between our two lead characters Beth Styles a part-time journalist and rich, arrogant real estate mogul Parker Stephenson lit up the pages. Beth is supposed to interview Parker and sparks fly from the first meeting. Upon meeting Parker, Beth's mouth gets her in trouble and the fun begins! This is a fast paced, funny, romantic story that sucks you right in. Check it out. I am looking forward to more books from Melinda Di Lorenzo. I received an ARC from the publisher for a honest review.

Loved this one! This is the first book by this author I've read and I must say I really enjoyed her writing style. This was a great story with great characters, lots of humor, some very touching moments, and an overall entertaining read. Parker Stephenson is caught on tape making a pretty bold statement and that clip went viral! When Beth Styles is assigned the job of covering his press conference to discuss the tape by her editor, she can't believe her bad luck. She's pegged him as an arrogant jerk and doesn't really want to hear what he has to say. When he challenges her in front of all her colleagues that he can get her to fall in love with him in 28 days what can she do but take him up on the challenge! They are both determined to win but will either come out of it with their heart unbroken?? I definitely recommend this one.

The challenge is on. Who will win? Parker Stephenson is a private CEO who made the mistake of being caught in camera saying he could make any woman fall in love with him and then train her to be a good wife. He ruffled a lot of feathers with that statement. Beth Styles needs an interview with Parker in order to secure a permanent position with Between The Sheets, the magazine that she works for. She will do anything to get it. When Beth confronts Parker about his statement and wanting an interview, he gives her an ultimatum. He tells her that he can have her trained to be his wife in 28 days. If it doesn't happen, Beth can have her interview. Beth isn't happy about the arrangement but she goes along with it so she can get the interview. A lot of things can happen in 28 days, even falling in love. This book was hard to put down. It covered a wide range of emotions and I couldn't help but cheer on Beth and Parker as I read their story. They were perfect for each other but they just needed a big push to realize it.
