A fun, sexy new stand-alone from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

He’s sexy and confident, the kind of man every woman notices. You know, the one with the to-die-for body and panty-melting smirk. And then there’s the way his designer suits drape over his broad shoulders and big…well, we’ve all heard the rumors, the ones that say he’s up for any challenge.

But I can’t see him that way. He’s my boss—technically one of the owners of the company where I work—and definitely not in my league. Men like him don’t notice women like me, and they don’t date them.

And I don’t date men like him.

Until that one time that I catch him in a compromising position when I’m also in need of a last-minute date for a wedding…and then it’s not real. It’s blackmail.

For one weekend, he’s my plus-one.

Beautiful and unobtainable.

From the moment she walked into my office with those stunning blue eyes and crazy sensual curves, she’s been on my mind. Three years and never once has she acted interested in me. Usually I flash a million-dollar smile and women fall to their knees, some literally.

Not her.

Then on the occasion that I agree to let another woman do that—fall to her knees—guess who happens to catch us?

It may not be the most conventional way to get on her radar, but I didn’t get this far in business without knowing when to seize an opportunity. If this sexy little firecracker with perfectly kissable lips thinks she can blackmail me into attending her cousin’s wedding, I’m going to jump at the chance to be her plus-one.

You love her darker side. Now it’s time to meet Leatha, the lighter side of Aleatha, as she trades her renowned twists and turns for laughs and love with this sexy new stand-alone romance, PLUS ONE.

~ 5 Seizing the Opportunity Stars ~

Oh My Goodness!!!! I definitely want more of Leatha, the lighter side of Aleatha. This book was AMAZING !!!!

I haven’t read many of Aleatha’s books, but the ones I have, have been outstanding, so I was excited to hear that she was venturing into the RomCom arena. Her dark reads can definitely take you out of your comfort zone, but this lighter side of Aleatha will bring you back home.

I honestly think that Aleatha has a strong future in anything she writes. Whether she gives us dark and twisted or light and sexy, her books can do no wrong!!!

Plus One is a standalone novel that is told from Dual POV, but we do get more of Kimora’s POV than Duncan. I thought this storyline was both captivating and entertaining. There was just the right mix of drama, humor and romance. This is truly what a fun, sexy beach read should be about. Leatha made me laugh out loud so many times, but she also tore at my heartstrings when it came to the backstory of Kimbra and Duncan. I also fell so HARD for Duncan. He takes a top spot on my book boyfriend list. He was extremely swoon worthy !!! and talk about a “dirty” mouth…he sure had my panties melting 😉 This is fairly quick read, but that isn’t because it was short and lacking, it is because you will get swept up into this world and will have a hard time putting this book down.

Plus One is the story of Kimbra and Duncan. Kimbra has worked at Duncan’s company for almost three years now, and even though she has noticed how good looking her boss is, she has never made any kind of advance towards him, she has kept it completely professional. Duncan is the co-owner of a pharmaceuticals company and has a reputation of being kind of a player. Duncan has noticed Kimbra from the first day she walked into his office, and is intrigued that she doesn’t fall at his feet like other woman. Their story becomes complicated when Kimbra catches Duncan in a compromising position at work. Kimbra also has a personal dilemma, in that she needs a date for her cousins wedding coming up. So seeing an opportunity, she “blackmails” Duncan….or so she thinks 😉 From here we get to see a fun, sexy and entertaining journey to a HEA. You will definitely want to follow their story and see how it all works out!!

I loved the secondary characters we meet in this story. Shana (Kimbra’s BFF) and Kimbra’s family….especially grandma Helen were amazing!!! I was laughing so hard when she brought Duncan to meet her family for the wedding. Grandma Helen and her mom Judy say some of the darnedest things. You might not want to read this in public. We also got to meet Duncan’s mom and learned about his brother Trevor. I wouldn’t be upset if Shana and Trevor got their own story….just an idea 🙂

So if you are looking for something a little safer and lighter from Aleatha Romig, you need to read her lighter side Leatha, in Plus One. This is definitely a favorite of mine for 2017 and I think it is a MUST READ!!!!



I’m in an alternate universe and it’s every fantasy I never knew I had.
What CEO of a billion-dollar company dreams of enjoying a farm in the middle of nowhere? Who imagines waking in a small bedroom, complete with a canopy bed and sunshine streaming through pink curtains, as birds sing? What owner of a 7,000-square-foot penthouse with a to-die-for view of the Empire State Building enjoys the hominess of a hundred-year-old, 3,000-square-foot farmhouse with a wraparound porch, creaky floors, and a view of cornfields?
Sitting with a cup of steaming black coffee, I listen as Kimbra and her brother Kevin bicker back and forth while helping their mother in the large eat-in kitchen. The warm spring air is filled with the sizzle of frying as the aroma of coffee, eggs, and bacon reminds me of some of the best diners in New York.
Although Kimbra’s dad, Oscar, is talking, I can’t concentrate on anything but Kimbra—Kimberly Ann. That’s what everyone here calls her.
“Because of you, I’m out ten bucks.” Kevin says, not doing a good job of whispering.
“Me?” Kimbra asks. “What did I do?”
Kevin tilts his head my way. “You brought a real guy here. I put money on him being made up.”
Kimbra reaches out and punches his shoulder.
He lifts his hands in surrender. “No. Listen. I was sure it was a good bet. When Mom said your boyfriend’s name wasn’t Timothy, but Duncan, and you didn’t want him in the wedding, Susan and I figured he wasn’t real. I bet Jimmy ten bucks this fake Duncan guy would be a no-show. Susan and I were sure that before last night, you’d have some reason why at the last minute he couldn’t attend. You know, like you’d make up some accident or something.”
Her brother is about as good at speaking softly as he is at being nice to his sister.
“Shut up!” Kimbra whispers back. “Obviously he’s real.”
Kevin’s head falls back in laughter. “He’s real, all right. Last night I thought your old bed was going to collapse.”
Kimbra’s eyes flash to me. And though I look down at my coffee and pray her dad isn’t listening, the gleam in her expression makes my cock twitch with the memories of the night before.
