Sometimes the perfect match is right under your nose…
Doctor Benny Sorensen has had it up to here with her party-throwing playboy neighbor. She’s declaring war. She doesn’t care how gorgeous or charming he is, he’s going down. That is until he proposes something she’s not sure she can say no to…
Wealthy ad man Henry Ellison lives an uncomplicated life that revolves around work, women, and partying. In that order. Until Benny storms into his life. To placate his attractive but hotheaded neighbor, Henry offers to help her land a date with the man of her dreams. Only as Henry makes her over and coaches her on the fine art of flirting, he realizes that the idea of this woman in any other man’s arms but his own is unacceptable. But Benny’s a forever kind of girl and forever might just be the one commitment he can’t make.
Each book in the Sorensen Family series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.
Book #1 Her Backup Boyfriend
Book #2 Her Accidental Husband
Book #3 The Playboy’s Proposal
I haven’t read the first two books in the series–yet!–but it didn’t matter a bit going in to this one. Sure, Benny’s siblings play a prominent role throughout–what a fun family dynamic!–but though I added their books ( Her Backup Boyfriend and Her Accidental Husband ) to my TBR ASAP, I didn’t feel at all at a loss because I hadn’t read them already.
And now I’ve got those two to keep me distracted until Daisy’s book comes out 🙂
Benny and Henry were a great couple–a wonderful example of the Eliza Dolittle/Henry Higgins type of romance. I loved that even though of course nothing happened between the two of them before Henry started her makeover (they were firmly in the antagonistic camp before that), he very definitely realized long before the book’s end that she needed to be appreciated for who she was all along, not just the “new” Benny she’d become. He was adamant about it, both in his head and out loud, and it just endeared him to me even more.
Plus, he’s an awesome uncle. And appreciates Property Brothers. And her dinosaur foot slippers. Obviously, Benny needs to hold on to that one. 😉
I loved that the two of them went from enemies to friends and then started to look at each other in a new light. It felt very natural and right. And did I mention adorable?
Benny is a fun heroine, and very easy to identify with. It just about broke my heart to see her try to be someone different for her doctor crush–Just tell him you don’t like sushi, already!was running on repeat in my brain at one point–and the fact that she went so far down that path just underscored how much better Henry was for her. I loved that she was the one to take the plunge first, even if Henry had his head too far up his butt at the time to appreciate her effort.
Fortunately, he does a good grovel.
Backing up to read books one and two now, and anxiously awaiting number four….

Synopsis: One little white lie leads to more than she planned…
Straight-laced lawyer Kate Matthews always plays by the rules. But when her ex gets engaged and a big promotion is on the line at work, she blurts out that she has a new boyfriend. And now that she’s proved she “has a life” outside of work, everything is perfect. Except for one teeny little detail—there is no boyfriend. And now Kate’s liable for her little white lie…
Dominic Sorensen is hot, charming, and very definitely not Kate’s type. But not only does Dominic want to help Kate renovate her home, he’s also willing to play “boyfriend.” All he wants in return is a little pro bono work for his sister. Now instead of Mr. Right, Kate has a delectable Mr. Fix-It-Right—and some unbelievable sexual chemistry. And if falling for Dominic is a breach of contract, Kate is guilty as charged…

Synopsis: Payton Vaughn’s trip to Puerto Vallarta for her friend’s wedding was her big escape from her ridiculously overbearing mother–oh, and that little matter with her cheating fiancé. Now, her flight’s been cancelled, and she’s crammed into a tiny car with the gorgeous-but-irritating best man.
Viva la road trip from hell…
Cruz Sorensen doesn’t have time to babysit some spoiled socialite, even if she is the future daughter-in-law of the man who could change the fortune of his family’s company. He has no business getting to know her better—not even for all the tequila in Mexico…until they wake up with grande-sized hangovers as man and wife.
Now Payton and Cruz must decide if they’ve reached the end of their journey…or the beginning of a new adventure.
