Everyone knows that Aaron Blake is not the marriage type. He doesn’t do romance. He loves dirty games and women, but most of all, he loves his work. The day Josseline Altier becomes his personal assistant his priorities come crashing down, turning his well-planned life into a complete disaster. She’s uncontrollable and too self-assured for her young age. She’s not going to follow anyone’s orders, especially if they come from a man whose shameless eyes don’t miss a single chance to slide down her curves.
But one day, everything changes. One accidental picture in a morning newspaper will force Aaron and Josseline to make a decision, the consequences of which neither of them is ready to deal with.
It was supposed to be just a false romance, a pretense to spark the rumors. But nothing can stop the fire of irresistible attraction burning in their eyes.
One look, one touch, one kiss…
How far the game will go?



Josseline Altier is Oliver and Dominick little sister, she’s independent and self-confident. She wants a job in publicity but not in Dom’s company. So this last one, asks Aaron Blake, to hire her.

Aaron Blake is a boy who loves his work, women and dirty love game. He accepts to hire Josseline for Dom and he won’t be disappointed.

I like the relation between Aaron and Josseline, they are funny together and hot too. In the beginning of the story, it’s very clear that Joss don’t want to fall for Aaron’s charms. But he’s hot, sexy, he wants her and she knows it. I like the love game in which they are committed. It’s funny to see them kidding each other and finally realizing that they are falling in love.

Josseline is really a charming character; she has to give way, not only professionally but also with her family. She’s the little girl who has to prove herself. I think this is the girl in the series who has the most effort to make.

Aaron is charming, he wants Josseline even if she’s his friend’s sister. Since the beginning, he knows that their relation won’t be like all the others. He has faith in him and I like his personality. He’s confident and it’s sexy as hell. I really love him because he’s not a man with problems.

I like this story more than the two others, (and I love the two others) because even if they have some issues, they won’t fight their love for each other’s, they are jealous and protective but in the end, they are together for good and bad. Josseline and Aaron are really the best characters of this series.

Diana made it once again and she has managed to make me love a boy more than Oliver. That was a long shot but she did it right. I love the way she describe her characters and the fun dialog she write. And she’s talented with hot scenes.

If you don’t know this author and/or this series, I will just say Go buy her books, they are great with amazing covers. This one is made by Amina Black and she’s gorgeous.
