This Marine’s the perfect hoax…if she doesn’t fall for him first.
Stats whiz Kayla Moriarity knows her way around numbers and algorithms. Men, on the other hand, are unsolvable equations. Now Kayla’s en route to her sister’s wedding—without the fictional boyfriend she invented for her family. Fortunately, her plane comes complete with complimentary cocktails and a ridiculously hot former Marine in the seat beside her. And that’s all it takes for Kayla’s inhibitions to go sailing out the airlock…
Cooper Shillings has soft spot for people in trouble, but he certainly wasn’t expecting to land in it himself—and definitely not while getting naughty mid-air with a sexy southern belle. When he hears Kayla’s predicament, however, he offers his services as a stand-in boyfriend. After all, he’s heading overseas soon…and how could he refuse a little no-strings wickedness?
It’s the perfect plan. And all Kayla has to do is ensure her family falls for the ultimate bluff, without falling for it—and Cooper—in the process…
"I will definitely be reading more Diane Alberts andJen McLaughlin books if they're as sexy as this one. Which I am totally sure they are. *goes to freeze some ice cubes*"--Kati, Romancing the Rakes
"Like all Brazen books, Temporarily Yours has a high heat factor, but Diane Alberts particularly excels at encounters between the sheets (or on an airplane, the back seat of a car, etc.), seamlessly blending them into the narrative to deepen the romantic connection between Cooper and Kayla." --Yvette Cervera
"I loved this story!! It was super sexy, sweet and just perfect! Everything I look for in a Brazen!"--Allison Riviera
"Temporarily Yours is another fantastic example of why I love Diane Alberts. She knows how to write sexy, steamy scenes with laugh out loud moments mixed in."--Candace Fleming

3.5 Stars! I want to make Cooper mine...permanently!!
Quick to hop in the sack doesn’t always work for me, but it did in Temporarily Yours. Why? I liked both characters from the get-go, Cooper and Kayla had good chemistry, and I believed and felt their attraction.
I enjoyed how Kayla’s profession p... ...more

4.5 - "You can use me in any way you desire." ... "Any way. Anywhere. Anytime." Stars!
Temporarily Yours is the first book in the Shillings Agency series, and what an absolute cracker it is too. I absolutely loved both Kayla and Cooper, and their story was one that kept me totally immersed until t... ...more
Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review
I liked it, but it bothered me a bit that it was in third person.
But that's personal so don't take it to heart.
It was fast paced, but for this story it was good.
All the things were told and no lose strings.
It was a hell of a lot steamy!... ...more
This was a hot little read. I loved the way Cooper and Kayla met. I like that the hot guy made a fool of himself for once. You always read about the woman going all tongue tied and tripping so this was a nice change. I especially loved Kayla's character. She was a bit nerdy with her random talk o... ...more

Again, rounding up from a 3.5. This was really cute. A bit of a geeky, yet confident heroine and a charming, sweet hero. A quick, fun little fantasy. ...more
I'm a huge fan of author Diane Alberts and I love Entangled's Brazen imprint so of course I couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy of Temporarily Yours. This story is everything you'd expect from this author - hot and steamy with great characters and a believable romance and I absolutely devoure... ...more
This book was everything I look for in romance books. Wonderfully written, witty, steamy, great strong characters, meaningful, just a little dose of angst and a wonderful HEA. It's also fairly short but it included everything I wanted it to and I didn't want it to end. Yes, they are attracted to... ...more
Very sexy and very sweet!
I'm a huge fan of grand gestures and Cooper's is up there with my favourites! : ) ...more
4.5 stars - ARC PROVIDED.
When I received the ARC for "Temporarily Yours," I was not expecting to receive it, and to be honest, it was a really pleasant surprise.
I opened the email with a huge smile and happiness, because I knew that, what I was about to read, I was going to be soaked by red cloud... ...more
I'm not gonna sugarcoat - there isn't much that Diane can write that I won't love and this is one of them. Cooper was freaking sizzling off my pages and I couldn't turn the slow enough. Yes, I said slow enough. I read passages over and over, saying hot damn many, many times. ...more
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Cooper and Kayla! Diane Alberts had me hooked with her sweet, hot, sexy, romantic story TEMPORARILY YOURS right from the start of this book and I enjoyed every single word! Ms. Alberts is a new to me author and OMG did she make a fan out of me!
Let’s start with the adorable, se... ...more
Fun, sexy and lordy it had me tearing up too! Temporarily Yours was a really delightful read. I had such a good time with it as Kayla and Cooper have a chance meeting, attraction hits them full force and, well, they end up pretending to be a couple at her sister's wedding and having lots of nekki... ...more
"Exactly. No Attachments.” Just two people enjoying each other’s company for a short time while pretending to be in love. What could possibly go wrong?”

Stand alone at this time, first book in a series I believe.
Another winner from Entangled Brazen. Several things I loved about this book.
Heroine, Kayla, was an actuary. Think it is the first time ever in a romance that I've read for that job profess... ...more
I've read a bunch of veteran love stories this year--men suffering PTSD coping in bad ways, men adjusting to prosthetic limbs being afraid to commit--and so I wasn't really sure what I'd get with this book.
I'm SO glad it was fantastic.
Sure, Cooper Shillings has a guilt complex that's dri... ...more

Temporarily Yours is one of those books which has a simple concept storyline but delivers a great sexy captivating read. It's low angst, very hot with wonderful characters and whilst it didn't hold any huge surprises and I have to admit I semi-predicted where the crux of the story was heading, it... ...more
I loved this book so much it hurts!
I loved how 'insecure' Cooper is, yet so confident at the same time and I loved how simple and relatable Kayla's attitude is. She's just adorable and even I loved her. I rarely loved heroine but this one, I adore her.
Cooper and Kayle stumbled upon each other a... ...more
I'm not a big fan of numbers. In fact, we don't get along at all. But Kayla Moriarity is a whiz kid with numbers, and I actually kind of loved her tendency to spout random statistics (I wonder how many of those were real and which were just made up for the book). She was so cute and adorable with... ...more
