Description
Perfect for readers of Susan Mallery and Rachel Gibson, Molly O’Keefe’s gritty and sensual tale of passion and politics features the brother of the heroine from the author’s beloved novel, Never Been Kissed. He’s a driven man who refuses to be distracted—until he meets a beautiful bartender who just may change his life.
 
With his chiseled jaw and thick blond hair, Harrison Montgomery was born to lead. Four generations of Montgomery men have served the state of Georgia, and now he’s next in line. Harrison, though, is driven to right wrongs: namely to clean up the political mess left by his father’s greed and corruption. But Harrison must first win his congressional bid, and nothing can get in his way—not even an angel who served him whiskey and gave him a shoulder to lean on and a body to love for a night. Problem is, she’s pregnant. Scandal is brewing, and there is only one solution: marriage.
 
Damage control? Ryan Kaminski can’t believe that a cold, calculating political animal now inhabits the body of the emotionally vulnerable stranger who gave her the most unforgettable night of her life. Really, she doesn’t want anything from Harrison, except to be left alone to have her baby in peace. But Ryan is broke, jobless, and essentially blackmailed by Harrison’s desperate family to accept this crazy marriage deal. For two years, she will have to act the role of caring, supportive wife. But what is Ryan supposed to do when she realizes that, deep in her heart, she’s falling in love?

        Starred review from August 18, 2014
        Ryan Kaminski, former model turned New York City bartender, is yanked out of her squalid but safe world and into a whole other dimension in the stunning fourth Boys of Bishop contemporary (after Between the Sheets). Harrison Montgomery plans to continue his family legacy of civil service with a run for Congress. His life is old money, public faces, and iced-over private lives. Ryan’s is scraping by, fighting for what you’ve got, and a family who will stand with you through—almost—anything. A no-strings-attached tryst between the two leads to Ryan’s unexpected pregnancy. When reporters begin to harass Ryan’s family and the scandal threatens Harrison’s career, the lovers make a deal for a hasty wedding, a public show of young love, and a private business arrangement. When his cold front meets her fiery spirit, both characters display a remarkable amount of care, selflessness, and chemistry. Their emotional turmoil and mutual confusion feels real, immediate, and wrenching. This is a love story not to be missed. Agent: Pam Hopkins, Pamela A. Hopkins Agency.

        October 1, 2014
        After an uncharacteristic one-night stand, congressional candidate Harrison Montgomery is facing scandal when Ryan Kaminski winds up pregnant; marrying her is the obvious solution, but falling in love is an unexpected surprise. After facing a family crisis, Harrison gives into temptation and connects with Ryan, the beautiful, compassionate bartender with blue-collar roots and a slightly shady past he meets in his hotel. After a sizzling one-night stand, he leaves her a sweet note that nonetheless expresses his intention to never see her again, then feels betrayed when he learns she's pregnant and claims the baby is his. Desperate to salvage his reputation, he convinces her to marry him, but while the two maintain a very cozy and romantic public image, privately they are too clouded by distrust and uncertainty to forge an authentic relationship, especially since Harrison's parents and sister are struggling to navigate their own personal and public personae. Ryan wants to learn more about the "real" Harrison she met in a Manhattan hotel room but is stymied by the cool, remote man he's become since their quick wedding. Set against the backdrop of Southern politics, the book is a modern rendition of the classic "marriage of convenience" romance trope, and in O'Keefe's very capable hands, readers are drawn into Ryan and Harrison's engaging journey to understanding and love. With two generations of Montgomery family scandal and drama to sift through, Harrison's parents, especially, seem to shift from supporters to saboteurs and back again, while Ryan, especially, is an intriguing character who surprises everyone, including herself, by becoming an asset rather than a liability. Overall a great read, though there are perhaps too many moments when Ryan and Harrison seem on the brink of emotional breakthrough, only to retreat into yet another moment of uncertainty. O'Keefe, however, is a master of explaining-and selling-character motivations. A touching, sexy and surprising story of two people from completely different worlds who turn out to be a perfect match.
