Faking it never felt so good…

Cory Santangelo is used to getting his way, both in the boardroom and the bedroom. Lately he hasn’t had much opportunity to do anything but work, but one unexpectedly sexy night in a gazebo with Victoria, his gorgeous and feisty interior designer, changes all that—especially when they’re caught on camera. Suddenly Cory’s sterling reputation is no longer above reproach. Since his impromptu encounter coincides nicely with his need for a girlfriend to get his well-meaning, meddling parents off his back, he decides to ask his lifelong frenemy for a favor.

To pretend to be his girlfriend for a month. No strings attached.

The only problem? Vicky Townsend wants those strings tied all around her. She’s battled a long-suppressed crush on Cory, and their combative work relationship has only fanned the flames. When he suggests his needs are more than she can handle, she’s ready to up the ante. And her bargaining chip is lots of delicious, inventive sex.

Until they discover nothing feels as good as making it real…

My Review:
Ever since he appeared in NO FLOWERS REQUIRED (book 2 in the series and Cory’s brother Dillon's book) I've been longing for Cory's book and when it came I devoured it as soon as I could. I read it in under 24 hours and in practically one sitting (only pausing for meals and slee ...more

Last year I picked up No Flowers Required and was blown away by the authors writing style and ability to suck me into her book. It was sweet, it was hot, and I loved it. One of my favorite reads of 2012. So imagine how excited I was when a rep for the author offered me an ARC of the next book in the ...more

4 "Three strikes and I'm in..." Stars!

I love this series, each book just keeps getting better and better, and who knew Cory Santangelo was such a dirty, sweet and total softy under that starchy, unrelenting personality.

"There was only one Santangelo brother I ever wanted to take my chances with."

I picked this up on a whim (with out realizing it was the third book in a series). It was a fun enjoyable read. While I do admit Cory and Vicky were a little hard to connect with at first, I enjoyed their sparks. The overall plot of the the book was a bit of a stretch (view spoiler) ...more

I’m a fan of Quinn’s books, so when she emailed me about her newest Love Required book, I was interested to see how things would work out between frenemies Cory and Vicky.

What a fun and sexy story! I want to read other books by the author because this couple is awesome.

4.5 stars

I am a huge fan of Cari Quinn's, so naturally I have been eagerly anticipating No Romance Required's release. It was just as good as her others, and I think I have found a new favorite. The tension between the two protagonists is insane. No Romance Required is a tale of a fake relationship ...more

By Melissa February 10, 2015

This is one of the better books in this series. Cory and Vic were hot together. I think that sometimes this author throws something's into the storyline and then forgets to readdress them. Either way I still loved this book. I like how Cory was so afraid that he was going to ruin things. I read a fe ...more

By XxTainaxX October 13, 2013

Well... what can I say about this book? It's a hazard. Nearly set my Nook on fire. There should be a disclaimer! :-) I absolutely fell in love with Cory. There's something about him that sparked my interest in No Flowers Required and in No Romance Required, I found out exactly what that was! Want to ...more

Cory is a no nonsense man and he has no patience, “for Christ’s sake, will you just shut up and get naked?” Cory's a bear when things don't got his way, “what is this proper effing notice ****? You used to be available when I wanted you. Now you’re so important that I need to schedule everything?” I ...more

Wow! I took a day off to relax and ended reading the whole book! that is how good it is. I couldn't put it down. I love that kind of love/hate relationships, frennemy type!

Once again, Cari Quinn was able to make me forget life outside my book!

"Complete forest fire, no extinguisher needed" describes the first sexual encounter of the main characters of this story, Cory and Victoria.

I found a gem in this series and cant wait to read the other 3 books in this series. Cory Santangelo is hard worker actually all he does is work, until the night him and Vicky Townsend get steamy in a gazebo outside a banquet. And when he finds out that his perfect reputation along with his job are ...more

I loved these characters, this book, their story - the was something in them that poked at me and made me want them to cuddle. In a case of opposites attract, this was everything isn't as it seems!

A great love story, lots of sexy moments, lots of pulls at the heart strings, and two people who are un ...more

Mazliet no grāmatas "muguriņas":

Korijs Santandželo ir pieradis dabūt visu pa savam, abos – guļamistabā un ārpus tās. Pēdējā laikā viņam nav bijis daudz iespēju kaut ko darīt izņemot darbu, bet vienu negaidītu seksīgu nakti vasaras mājā kopā ar Viktoriju, vi

No Romance Required (Love Required 3) Cari Quinn.

I've enjoyed a few of Cari's novels now – thankfully among the trilogies there are still authors that write stand alone novels. Not that I don't enjoy trilogies and series but I just HATE the waiting for more...anyway, No Roman ...more

By Heather in FL August 27, 2013

I tagged this "friends to lovers", but it's really frenemies to lovers. Cody and Victoria have danced around each other since they were kids and like to snipe at each other. It's all good-natured fun, but they seem like oil and vinegar. Vic's older sister is probably better suited to the business-fo ...more

By Debbie January 23, 2014

4.5 rating - This is the third book in Ms. Quinn's series. It's about Cory and Victoria. Cory is a workaholic who never sleeps or takes any time for himself. His parents are retiring from the family business and basically give him an ultimatum that if he doesn't take time for himself and enjoy life ...more

By Paige February 27, 2014

When I glommed No Flowers Required yesterday, I picked up on the spark between Cory and Vicky, and I was realllllly hoping that the next book in the series was their story. Much to my delight, it was!

Cory is an uptight workaholic. He only goes home to sleep, and even then he rarely sleeps because o ...more

Review originally posted at Love To Read For Fun

Cory is Dillon’s unlikable brother from, No Flowers Required. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about Cory as the hero. He would need a heroine who would occasionally kick him in the balls and Victoria is the perfect person for that job.

Cory is a w ...more

This is the third book in the Love Required series and I was super excited to read it. The chemistry between the two main characters was leaping off the page in the previous book, so to see how it played out was well worth the wait.

This story didn't disappoint, it had me laughing, sighing, fanning ...more

By Kirsten August 16, 2013

I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review. Cory Santangelo is a workaholic, and everyone knows it. One night changes everything for him when his parents give him a directive to get a life instead of burying himself in work. One impulsive decision leads to another impulsive decisi ...more

By Nicola August 14, 2013

There are absolutely no reasons why you shouldn't read this. I devoured it. If you haven't read 'No Flowers Required' you really should. It could be a standalone, but you're missing a treat as characters cross over.

So our leading man, Cory Santangelo. Good grief. I had a strong suspicion he'd be hot ...more

By Kristy March 10, 2014

Loved this book and the series. This is book three. Please read at least book two before this one. Cory is a workaholic and doesn't want to change. He is trying to make the family business grow and support his parent who are going to move/retire. He works with Vicky to put out a magazine about inter ...more

Cari Quinn

USA Today bestselling author Cari Quinn wrote her first story - a bible parable - in 2nd grade, much to the delight of the nuns at her Catholic school. Once she saw the warm reception that first tale garnered, she was hooked. Now she gets to pen sexy romances for a living and routinely counts her lucky stars. When she's not scribbling furiously, she can usually be found watching men's college basketball, playing her music way too loud or causing trouble. Sometimes simultaneously.
