Faking it never felt so good…

Cory Santangelo is used to getting his way, both in the boardroom and the bedroom. Lately he hasn’t had much opportunity to do anything but work, but one unexpectedly sexy night in a gazebo with Victoria, his gorgeous and feisty interior designer, changes all that—especially when they’re caught on camera. Suddenly Cory’s sterling reputation is no longer above reproach. Since his impromptu encounter coincides nicely with his need for a girlfriend to get his well-meaning, meddling parents off his back, he decides to ask his lifelong frenemy for a favor.

To pretend to be his girlfriend for a month. No strings attached. The only problem? Vicky Townsend wants those strings tied all around her.

She’s battled a long-suppressed crush on Cory, and their combative work relationship has only fanned the flames. When he suggests his needs are more than she can handle, she’s ready to up the ante. And her bargaining chip is lots of delicious, inventive sex.

Until they discover nothing feels as good as making it real…

Review ~

Wowza! I just finished reading, No Romance Required, the long-awaited book by another favorite author of mine, Cari Quinn. I freaking love this woman and her stories! I always know I will get characters I will fall in love with and storytelling that will capture my heart. She also happens to be one of the nicest and funniest person I've gotten to know on twitter and FB and who truly adores her fans :) 

Let me just start off by saying how much I LOVED Cory! OMG! Behind his standoff-ish and workaholic persona, lays a man with some sexy and *gasp* kinky tendencies. It all began after some bantering between Cory and Vicky that turned into raw, smoldering heat at a gazebo for anyone to see. These two characters had incredible chemistry and I enjoyed the sparks, witty dialogue and banter whenever they were in the same room. They both had issues in their personal life; Cory being consumed with work and no interest in a long-term relationship and Vicky being afraid of getting abandoned again by those she loves. I loved that Vicky was a strong heroine and was not afraid of anything that Cory dished out.

What started out as a "fake" relationship between him and Vicky to appease his parents, turned into something more meaningful than either one of them ever imagined. And the sex just kept getting hotter and hotter and I almost self-combusted after the wax play scene on the dining room table! *fans self* You will need some ice to cool off or help get things hotter again. LOL!  Cari did a terrific job writing that scene and depicting each move and sensation experienced by both her characters. She just blew my mind and had me distracted all day until I could finish the book. 

This story was sexy, hot, sweet and romantic and the ending just melted my heart *swoon* Two secondary characters, Bryan and Jill, were introduced in this story and I'm hoping they will get their story in the future. In the meantime, I'm already anxiously waiting for the next book by this wonderful author.
