Jillian Greene thinks all men are
pigs. No, wait. She KNOWS they are starting with the first
man who she witnesses betraying his wife – her father.
Because of the way she feels about men and their lying,
cheating, and swinish ways, Jillian’s job as bait for ‘Catch
a Mate’ is the perfect job for her. She loves nothing more
than capturing cheating spouses in the act but lately the
clients’ tears are starting to wear on her. Jillian figures
it is time for her to talk to Anne, ‘Catch a Mate’s’ owner,
about possibly selling the business to her but before
Jillian can get Anne to talk to her, she is called into
Anne’s office and meets HIM, Marcus Brody.
Marcus Brody and Jillian experience
hate at first sight and when Jillian finds out she is paired
with Marcus for her night’s assignment, she almost
explodes. Not only did they insult each other but they
realized something else – each has a raging desire to bed
the other which at the moment is a fate worse than death.
The harder Marcus and Jillian fight
each other, the more their animosity turns to desire until
they are unable to contain themselves, much to their mutual
horror. Too late to forget how each felt in the other’s
arms, Marcus and Jillian agree to sex only. They may have
agreed on a simple sexual relationship but both will find
out that their feelings for each other are anything but
Catch a Mate by Gena Showalter is witty and
playful. Underneath Jillian’s tough outer exterior is a
woman yearning to find the one man who will be hers forever,
steadfast and faithful. Marcus, for all of his bluster and
blunder desires the same thing – a match trustworthy enough
to take a chance on forever. Catch a Mate was
about real love and acceptance. I hated for it to end!
