    Unfortunately, there is a case of mixed identity (kind of) and Parker is now stuck with her fake boyfriend's brother... Rhys... tall, muscled ex-boxer and totally not what she had in mind. Rhys jumps at the opportunity to solve his own financial problems. 

    These two were absolutely awesome together. I fell in love with both characters and their back and forth banter. There is definitely a case of "enemies to lovers" here and it was delicious. 

    If you enjoy funny and steamy romances with a touch of sarcastic banter thrown in, you should really give this one a go.

    Parker Brown is a single woman living in Boston who comes from a well known, wealthy family. Her career has become her entire focus, and she loves her job working in renewable energy as a data analyst. She's determined to move up in the company, and wants to score a permanent contract. The only problem is the top boss has an old fashioned way of thinking, and prefers his employees to be "settled." Since Parker hasn't found that special someone yet, she looks to hire someone to be her date to work functions. She's found the perfect guy. He's an intellectual like herself and they should have plenty in common. Instead she gets his older, overprotective big brother Rhys.

    Rhys Morgan is an ex-professional boxing champion who is known as the best of his generation. He's now retired from boxing, and running his family's boxing gym. The only issue is his finances are in trouble, and he needs money to pay off his mountains of debt. He has a lot of responsibilities that have fallen on his shoulders, but his top priority would always be his younger brother Dean. When he finds out about his deal with Parker, he decides to give this society girl a piece of his mind. There was no way he was going to let this privileged princess get anywhere near his brother. Then he realizes when her rich boss shows up that this may be the opportunity he's been needing. If he could find a sponsor for his gym, then all his problems would be solved.

    Rhys ultimately decides he could be arm candy for the right price. So what if they couldn't stand each other. He would pretend to be her boyfriend, and things between them would be strictly business. He never thought he would find anything about her appealing. He could admit the quirky, polished environmentalist was beautiful, but they came from very different backgrounds, and had nothing in common.

    Parker was furious that Rhys basically hijacked here life. She'd made a deal with the devil, and now had to spend too much time with the broody jerk who was full of attitude. Where his brother looked more pretty boy, Rhys was rugged and more rough around the edges. He was extremely hot, but totally not her type. She liked her men more refined, and less bad boy, but as they get to know one another better she realizes she's developed a huge crush on her fake boyfriend. He was intoxicating, and their unexpected connection blindsided her. Their pretend relationship starts to feel very real all of the sudden. Will they explore the chemistry between them, or will they decide they are too different to ever fit into each others worlds?

    -He was beautiful in a primal way.

    -With her, I felt like something new, something better.

    Outmatched by Kristen Callihan and Samantha Young is a fabulous enemies to lovers romance where opposites attract and fall hard for one another. I loved this book so much!!! It was an easy five stars for me. This writing duo is golden together, and I hope they collaborate again. I couldn't get enough of Rhys and his huge heart and gentle soul. He was completely dreamy! I would be thrilled if we could get more books in this world. I would love a story for Carlos or Dean!

    Enemies to lovers, opposites attracts, hired fake boyfriend, hero is a boxer— HERO IS A BOXER.

    My romance reader's heart is full and also ready to read about Dean and Carlos. Please let this be the start of a neverending collab between these two authors. Brilliant!

    I. AM. SO. HAPPY. RIGHT. NOW.

    Seriously. I don't even know what to do with myself? What do you do when two of your favorite authors co-write a book together and not only does it live up to your RIDICULOUSLY BIG expectations but actually EXCEEDS it?!! You flail like the happy fangirl that you are and offer up an ovary on the chance that this will mark the first book in a series. What? It's a totally normal reaction. Stop judging me. GOD.

    If you love enemies to lovers and fake relationship tropes, this is your next obsession. Guys, I'm not even kidding. This book was everything. All of the things. Witty banter, humor, and all of the steam. And the characters? My god! Talk about opposites attract.

    Parker Brown is a girl after my own heart. She comes from privilege but it certainly doesn't define who she is. She's a lot smart and with just the right amount of quirky. Desperate to make an impression on her boss's misogynistic a-hole boss in order to secure the job of her dreams. Sounds easy right? Too bad it's not her knowledge at work that matters, but the having a boyfriend. So what's a girl to do? Hire one, of course!

    Rhys Morgan is a retired boxer desperate to keep his gym afloat after the passing of his father. So when he learns that his brother got a job pimping himself out to some pretentious rich chick, he's all too eager to put a kibosh on it. But when he stomps to meet her and put her in her place, he somehow ends up making an impression on her boss and offering to take his brother's place. PLOT TWIST!!

    The banter between these two was off the charts hot. SWEET BABY JEBUS! The banter was everything. Rhys and and Parker absolutely burn up the pages together. Their chemistry is incendiary. The slow building romance is packed with so much sexual tension that you feel like your fingers singe just turning the pages. The pages are full of witty banter and sizzling chemistry that I just couldn't get enough of. Parker may have grown up privileged but she's determined to make her own way. I just loved her. Then there's the mouthy Boston boxer with a heart of gold. Together they set the book on fire. And that's not even mentioning the incredible secondary characters that I'm desperately hoping will be getting their own books.

    Basically, this book was freaking fantastic!! An absolute must read full of heart, humor, and steam!

    Kristen Callihan and Samantha Young, two authors who have been on my favorites list for years, have come together to collaborate for the first time, and I truly hope there is more in store with this fabulous writing duo!

    is a wildly fun and steamy

    romance between a prim and proper career-oriented New York princess and a ruggedly handsome ex-heavyweight boxing champion. Parker Brown, aka

    , and Rhys Morgan at first glance, appear to be an odd match. There couldn’t be anything these two have in common but when they peel back each other’s layers, there is no mistaking how they are two halves of a perfect whole.

    Parker is trying to get a permanent position at the company she works at. To do so, she needs to be in a serious relationship and bring her man to some company-sponsored functions. She uses an app to hire the perfect man to be her date for the unforeseeable future. Parker wasn’t expecting to get a two hundred fifteen pound sinfully sexy alpha male to be her fake boyfriend. Rhys’ younger brother was supposed to play the part, but Rhys was not about to let his brother throw his ivy league education down the drain to become a paid escort. He intended to meet Parker and give her a piece of his mind but winds up taking his brother’s place when he realizes that the arrangement could help him save his family-owned gym.

    Rhys and Parker are like oil and water at the start of their journey but it’s clear from their first encounter that underneath the tension and hostility is some scorching hot chemistry. The anticipation for these two to give in to their desires for each other is almost painful! For readers, it’s easy to see these two are a match made in heaven but their shared cluelessness will make for some thoroughly angsty fodder.

    30-year-old Parker Brown loves her job at a Renewable Energy company, but the owner is a chauvinistic sexist man who only hire married or woman in a serious relationship - which proves (in his eyes) a long-term commitment.

    Parker has been single for 13 years, and now she could lose her job, so she hires the perfect candidate, Dean Morgan to be her fake boyfriend.

    But when the time comes, she finds herself in front of a different guy - He doesn't wear a suit, he's rough, has a dirty mouth...

    30-year-old Parker Brown loves her job at a Renewable Energy company, but the owner is a chauvinistic sexist man who only hire married or woman in a serious relationship - which proves (in his eyes) a long-term commitment.

    Parker has been single for 13 years, and now she could lose her job, so she hires the perfect candidate, Dean Morgan to be her fake boyfriend. 😍

    But when the time comes, she finds herself in front of a different guy - He doesn't wear a suit, he's rough, has a dirty mouth... and he's PISSED! 😱

    📚 "𝗟𝗼𝘃𝗲 𝗱𝗼𝗲𝘀𝗻'𝘁 𝗺𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝘀𝗲𝗻𝘀𝗲. 𝗙𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗶𝘀𝗻'𝘁 𝗮𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗹𝗼𝗴𝗶𝗰. 𝗜𝘁'𝘀 𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗺𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗿𝘆." 📚

    Rhys Morgan (Aww... even his name is sexy! 🔥) Is an ex-heavy weight-boxer that runs his family’s gym, but it's on the verge of bankruptcy. 😬

    He's the perfect combination of soft and tough in one sweet package. 😋

    Rhys refuses to let a rich woman "pimp" his little brother, so he goes to tell Parker exactly what he thinks of her... instead, he takes the role as her fake boyfriend. ❤

    They can help each other - he could find a sponsor to save his gym and she could keep her job. What could possibly go wrong...? 😂

    📚 “𝗕𝘆𝗲-𝗯𝘆𝗲.” 𝗛𝗲 𝗱𝗶𝗱𝗻’𝘁 𝗺𝗼𝘃𝗲. “𝗔𝗱𝗶𝗼𝘀?” 𝗦𝘁𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝘁 𝗺𝗲. “𝗩á𝗺𝗼𝗻𝗼𝘀. 𝗖𝗶𝗮𝗼. 𝗔𝘂 𝗿𝗲𝘃𝗼𝗶𝗿.” 𝗜 𝘀𝗶𝗴𝗵𝗲𝗱 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝘃𝗶𝗹𝘆. “𝗦𝗵𝗼𝗼.”

    𝗛𝗲 𝘀𝗰𝗼𝘄𝗹𝗲𝗱. “𝗗𝗶𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗷𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝘀𝗵𝗼𝗼 𝗺𝗲?” 📚

    Rhys and Parker are complete opposites - she is tiny and intelligent, rides electric bike to save the earth and never curses. He looks like a mountain of muscles, rides a Harley and has no filters... But together, they prove that contrasts really do attract. 🎉

    No doubt, the best thing about this book is their interactions- their banters made me laugh out loud!!! (especially when he tries to get her to curse) 😂😂😂

    📚 “𝗢𝗵, 𝗯𝘂𝗹𝗹-𝗽𝘂𝗰𝗸𝘀.”

    “𝗛𝗼𝗰𝗸𝗲𝘆? 𝗣𝘂𝗰𝗸𝘀? 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁’𝘀 𝗻𝗲𝘅𝘁? 𝗕𝘂𝗹𝗹𝘀 𝗼𝗻 𝘀𝗸𝗮𝘁𝗲𝘀?” 📚

    I loved their embarrassing moments, the passion and romance, the way they were the perfect balance for each other... but mostlly, I just loved Rhys. ❤

    The book talks about an important issue - gender inequality and injustice that women go through in male-dominated work places, but unfortunately the "solution" was too superficial. It could have given the book an important quality and depth.

    I won't lie, there were parts that made me roll my eyes (I grew wary over his size. "Do you think that’ll fit?” 🙄) and towards the end I got tired of the insecurities, misunderstandings and people who tried to destroy them... I would rather read about the way their relationships grew and evolved. But despite that - I really enjoyed this book! ❤❤❤

    📚 “𝗦𝗵𝗲’𝘀 𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁. 𝗜 𝗹𝗶𝗸𝗲 𝗵𝗲𝗿. 𝗔 𝗹𝗼𝘁. 𝗕𝘂𝘁…”

    “𝗦𝗵𝗲 𝗵𝗮𝘀 𝘀𝗰𝗮𝗯𝗶𝗲𝘀?”

    𝗜 𝗱𝗿𝗼𝗽𝗽𝗲𝗱 𝗺𝘆 𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘀𝗵𝗼𝘁 𝗵𝗶𝗺 𝗮 𝗹𝗼𝗼𝗸. “𝗗𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗻 𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗺𝗲𝗮𝗻𝘀?”

    “𝗜𝘁’𝘀 𝗮 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝗱𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁—”

    “𝗙𝗼𝗿𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝗜 𝗮𝘀𝗸𝗲𝗱. 𝗦𝗵𝗲 𝗱𝗼𝗲𝘀𝗻’𝘁 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝘀𝗰𝗮𝗯𝗶𝗲𝘀." 📚

    It's a sweet, passionate romantic comedy that came just in the right time - with awesome characters, fun plot and great writing! 👌

    I have no idea which author wrote what. I didn't even feel like the book was written by two different authors - what proves that together, Samantha and Kristen makes a hell of a great team! ❤👑

    So if you want a light and fun read that would make you laugh and fall in love, this is the book for you! 💃🎉

    3 Cracked in the Head Stars ⭐

    What could a retired heavyweight boxer and an environmentally friendly geek have in common? Well actually, almost everything once they got over their egos, animosity, and their narrow-minded views of each other… 

    Parker Brown needs a fake boyfriend to progress at work.  Where she thought she was hiring a compatible escort to play the part, she got the caveman brother in his place.  Before she has the chance to tell him to piss off, Rhys Morgan has accepted the role, concreting their fake relationship with her colleagues.

    Desperation is evidentially driving Rhys Morgan as he is now officially Parker’s boyfriend.  Why some high society girl needs to a hire a man is unfathomable. But for Rhys, the money he gets from this gig will help save his family gym that is sinking faster than the titanic.

    Supposedly, they are two people that are total opposites and clearly despise each other.  With an arrangement that forces them to spend far too much time together, they will come to realize that first impressions aren’t always right.  Their newfound tolerance to get the job done soon turns into an opportunity for more. Such as all the touching and kissing disguised as practice.

    This duet of authors have managed to create a light-hearted romance filled with great banter. Unfortunately these two characters both warranted a good smack across the head for being thick-headed. The constant miscommunication between Parker and Rhys and denial of their attraction created unnecessary obstacles.  To be fair, I'm probably not the ideal target audience as I prefer my romances raunchier and faster paced, but I do enjoy a good rom-com. This was just OK.
