Poppy Collins loves her sister and will do anything to help her through rough times, even if it means secretly running a business that plans divorce parties. When she's asked to plan a party for the friend of self-made millionaire Beck Blackwood, she agrees to meet with him face-to-face even though that's not her usual style.

Beck Blackwood's life isn't going so well at the moment, and the only way to get it back on track is to get married. When he meets Poppy Collins, he blackmails her into getting what he wants.

This was a very entertaining book and I liked how it started and just kept getting better from there especially when the two main characters are introduced to each other. The dialogue between them was intense at times because of Beck blackmailing Poppy and then both of them realising that they were falling in love even though in the beginning the marriage was one of convenience. The sex scenes were hot and perfect for the story where they were placed as they showed the explosive chemistry of the hero and heroine. What I liked so much about Poppy was that she was willing to do anything for her sister. While with Beck, I liked how ruthless he was in making sure Poppy knew that she had no choice but to go along with them getting married.

Overall, this book was an excellent read which I'm sure many readers would be interested in because who knew being blackmailed could be so good especially with an alpha hero like Beck.
