Kristen Callihan & Samantha Young
What happens when a boxer finds chemistry with a geek?
Parker Brown can’t believe she needs to hire a fake boyfriend. When she landed her dream job in renewable energy, she thought she’d be entering a world at the forefront of progressive thinking. But the head boss prefers to promote employees who are “settled.” Thankfully, she’s found the perfect candidate, a fellow intellectual looking for some quick cash. What Parker gets is his protective big brother—Rhys Morgan. The tall, muscled ex-boxer with a foul mouth shows up just as her boss does, and now she’s stuck with the manipulative jerk.
Responsibility weighs heavily on Rhys. Now permanently out of the ring, he’s trying to hold together his late father’s gym and keep his younger brother, Dean, on the straight and narrow. To save Dean from himself, Rhys takes his place, ready to give this society girl a piece of his mind. Instead, he finds an opportunity. Even though they can hardly stand each other, posing as Parker’s boyfriend is a win-win deal. She gets to keep her job, and he’ll charm her star-struck boss into sponsoring his gym.
Problem is, they can barely keep their hands off each other. And what started as an easy deal isn’t so easy anymore. Because what future can a rough ex-boxer, afraid to open his heart, and a polished society geek, who has sworn off real relationships, possibly have?
They say opposites attract. These opposites are about to com-bust on impact.
5 Outmatched Stars on Goodreads
Outmatched by Kristen Callihan & Samantha Young was just what I needed coming towards Christmas and the end of the year. It was quirky, fun and fast read.
“I was thirty years old and single, and my parents were worried because I’d been single a while now. Like, a while. A whole lotta while. Thirteen years.”
Parker Brown is a single woman in a male dominated company. Although her boss is great and willing to further her carer, his boss has issues with her being single. She sees no other option but to hire a man to pose as her boyfriend for work events. She is not expecting that guy to be Rhys Morgan, an ex boxer who is moody and intense in a very hot way to show up.
