Excerpt & Giveaway: Nothing But Trouble by Ashley Bostock

Nothing But Trouble

Publication date: August 28th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Billionaire CEO Michael Vilander needed just one date. Creating a fake profile on his own matchmaking website may not have been his brightest move. But then Sophia Baldwin’s arresting face pops up on his CHAT NOW feature. Not only is she gorgeous, but after spending half the night exchanging messages with her, he finds her to be naive, innocent and way too sexy.
Twenty-four-year-old Sophia Baldwin is barely able to make ends meet. Caring for her sick grandmother prevents her from having a normal life—aspirations of attending college full-time to become a nurse are on the back burner—but then she meets the charming and dazzling Clint on an online dating site. When he asks her to the Denver Arts Foundation’s Annual Valentine’s Day Gala, she’s confident things are looking up.
Once Sophia learns that her hot date is none other than website mogul Michael Vilander, she’s definitely not mentioning her night job. What’s a lie by omission anyway? After all, it’s only one date…Until Michael’s ex flaunts her fancy engagement ring in Michael’s face and something compels Sophia to announce her and Michael’s engagement. AKA, fake engagement. They agree on one month to pretend they’re in love before all bets are off.
Pretending to be in love with a sweet and sexy billionaire, but not actually falling in love, ahem, how hard could it be?

“How about we schedule in times we can see each other every week for the press’s sake? I’m pretty sure I can pencil you in at least a few times next week.”
Sophia felt the strain of her skin above and below her eyeballs as she laughed incredulously. Pencil her in? Like an appointment? He must have realized how idiotic he sounded. His deep laughter rumbled against her chest, and the sound of his chuckle stirred something inside of her, and they both laughed aloud together.
“Is that something most of your women accept? To be penciled in?”
“It has worked well for me in the past.”
“That’s not going to happen with me, Michael Vilander.”
“Are you agreeing that you’ll be my fake fiancĂ©e?”
Was she? Out of nowhere, his mouth was on her cheek near the corner of her lips. She fought the desire to turn into him. To take what he was offering. To feel those tempting lips she’d watched all night long as they graced the edges of his water glass. Before she could work up enough nerve, he pulled away leaving her wanting more. A real kiss.
“Please accept my proposition,” he said in an even tone.
