Harlequin American Romance

Being "Always the bridesmaid but never the bride" had never bothered Detective Jill Ames before. But, when the last of her hometown bachelorette buddies announces an upcoming marriage, she needs a husband quick!

1-800-HUSBAND provides Matt Travis, who is desirable, unpredictable, irresistible, and all wrong.

The book had a great beginning, even with the too coincidental (and practically eye-rolling) development that the hero doesn't really like cops.

However, it really took a step back at the forced sex scene. She's tipsy, possibly drunk, he's not, and it still happens? Yeah, right. I'm guessing the guidelines for Harlequin said there had to be at least on sex scene, and that seemed a good place to stick it. Honestly, the book would have been better off without it.

Then there was the development about the girlfriends fake marriage. Bleah.

Verdict: Good for the first part, went downhill from there. Definitely not a keeper.
