A romantic comedy that puts the “fun” in dysfunctional family.
Rising actress Lowell Barton has problems… lots of them.
One night, she tries to solve them with margaritas… lots of them. Unfortunately, she throws them up all over a police officer’s shoes. Then a video of the incident shows up all over the Internet.
Now she needs to do damage control. Fast. What she needs is a story juicy enough to throw off the press. A new boyfriend—a perfect, smoking hot new boyfriend—would be just the thing.
Unfortunately, it’s just the thing she doesn’t have.
Deciding to throw caution to the wind and money at her mounting problems, Lowell hires a date. But when sexy escort Kyle Richards steps out of her past and onto her doorstep, she finds herself in a fresh hell she couldn’t have imagined.
Is he the stepbrother-escort from hell, or just the thing to save her career—and herself?
Lowell’s about to find out. One thing she knows for sure: only desperate times call for measures this desperate.

Lowell Barton is an actress who got in trouble by drinking to get over her problems. She puked on the police officer’s shoes and it was caught on a video which spreads in the social media. It almost ruin her career and reputation but she will not allow that to happen. As a solution, she hires an escort to pretend as her boyfriend. Interestingly turns out to be her ex-stepbrother, Kyle Richards. These two didn’t have a good relationship when they’re kids and always throw each other some banters. Things changed between them as they saw each other in a different way.
Overall, it’s a guilty pleasure read. I liked it. The romance is good, not much of a character development and the premise is easy to read but Lowell mostly frustrated me. She’s really whiny in my opinion.
