Description from Publisher:

I’m not being cocky when I say I get attention from millions of women. As the Dating Guy on morning radio’s top L.A. music station, it’s my job to give the single guy’s perspective on dating, love, and sex, and I’m killing it in the ratings. The best part? I have to stay single (it’s in my contract) and with a faux British accent on air, no one knows who I really am. The mystery is part of my impressive appeal.

I love my job.

I’m great at it.

I have no trouble getting a date or getting laid.

Until I meet her. Teague Watters. She’s a breath of fresh air, and I can’t stop thinking about her. As a rule, I always leave women wanting more. But this time I want more. Teague is into me, I can see it in her eyes, yet she’s playing hard to get. Well, bring it, because I’m game for the chase.

Circumstances deem I should keep my distance so I don’t hurt either one of us. But the fact is, I’m having a hard time backing off. Because sometimes the thing you can’t have is the thing you want—and need—the most.

My Rating:
Heat Rating:

Every morning, the coffee shop that Teague, our heroine, works at goes silent as everyone is glues to the radio and Bennett's radio show about being a single guy dating around. She wants to be a travel journalist, though moving to LA is the furthest she has been from home. She bumps into a gorgeous guy - literally - not just once, but twice, after accidentally getting a second job as an assistant to a high profile wedding planner.

This starts off with instant attraction between Teague and Mateo (the actual identity of Bennett), but they fight that attraction for a significant portion of the book. Mateo helps show Teague around LA and their relationship slowly builds to more. I'm not sure why, but I had a harder time connecting with Mateo, and he felt a bit too arrogant to me a lot of the time. I think that he may have been less sentimental than I would have liked, and that made these two feel more like friends who lusted after one another than two people falling in love.

I typically love "alter egos" in stories, so was really looking forward to the "Bennett" aspect. It didn't come up much, except that Mateo had a secret he couldn't share and we got a synopsis of how he felt about Teague via the show every once in awhile. I really wanted some sort of interaction between "Bennett" and Teague!

This was definitely a fun read, with some excellent sexual tension! The wedding planning parts were a fun way of showing Teague's development, and the "LA tourist" bits were a delight!a

A California girl, the beach is her favorite place for fun and inspiration. Her fondness for swoon-worthy heroes who flirt and stumble upon the girl they can’t live without jumpstarts most of her story ideas.

In her spare time she also likes to put her treadmill to good use while watching her favorite TV shows, take hikes with her hubby, indulge her sweet tooth, and play sock tug of war with her cute, but sometimes naughty dog, Harry.

She dreams of traveling to faraway places and loves to connect with readers.
