“Whoever said a kiss is just a kiss never locked lips with Brent Maddox.”
Small-town practical to the soles of her size fives, high school English teacher Jen Casey has one weakness—she’s never been able to resist a dare. Ergo, when her BFF Candy Johnson throws down the triple-dog dare gauntlet, Jen has no choice but to accept the challenge. She e-mails former-classmate-turned-millionaire Brent Maddox, offering advice for the lovelorn.
But, really. Is it her fault Celebrity Magazine published the e-mail instead of forwarding it?
See, that’s the problem with dares in Jen’s experience—they almost always have dire consequences. Like Brent Maddox showing up on her doorstep—tall and golden and sexy as sin—determined to get payback. Like finding herself a reluctant guest at his sprawling Malibu hacienda, sentenced to a week of the same high life she blames for his romantic snafus.
Of course sparks start to fly. She’s only human, and Brent is an unexpectedly endearing hunk and a half. Unfortunately, Jen isn’t built for quick and steamy affairs. She’s been dreaming of that love of a lifetime man, and now she’s falling fast. She can run before it’s too late, or stay and take the biggest gamble of her life. Brent promises nights filled with passion, but will he ever offer his heart?

For Love or Money was a quick read. One that I found fairly predictable, but enjoyable none the less!
Jen is an innocent little thing that can’t stay away from a dare. No matter what apparently. And one too many dares get her caught up in a bit of a… dilemma.
Brent Maddox is middle class gone rich and rogue if you ask Jen. She claims he likes to flaunt his money and that’s why he can’t find love.
Of course, the dare that puts Jen in a dilemma comes back to bite her in the bum!
I loved the chemistry between Jen and Brent and had a giddy smile on my face the entire time I was reading. I could not get enough.
This was a short read so it didn’t take me long to read it and I have already read it one and a half times! If you like clean romance and are looking for a quick read that won’t take much more than a day or two – this is the perfect read!
And I’m certain you will want to read it more than once too!
