The Wingman (Alpha Men #1) by Natasha Anders
She was supposed to be his one-night distraction. But their attraction is undeniable.
Introverted Daisy McGregor is used to being a wallflower, but what she lacks in style, she makes up for with an acerbic wit, a passion for life, and a deep devotion to her family. So she’ll suffer through her sister Dahlia’s bachelorette party and accept the cloud of pity for going stag to the wedding.
Out at the pub, sexy bad boy Mason Carlisle is a reluctant wingman tasked with entertaining Daisy while his brother flirts with her oldest sister, Daffodil. When the plan fails and Mason’s true intent is revealed, he feels intense guilt—and a sensual spark of desire for the unlikeliest of women.
Daisy decides to use this unfortunate encounter to her advantage: to make it up to her, Mason will be another kind of wingman, playing the role of her boyfriend and wedding date. Will their ruse unravel completely—or will Mason and Daisy’s undeniable attraction ignite a scorching love affair that knows no rules?
I loved The Wingman. Loved it so much. I don't know what it is about the way this author writes but she took this story that I thought I would enjoy, that I thought would be a quick, fun read, and made it so much more. It was a fun read, but it was an amazing read as well. Oh, I wasn't expecting everything I got out of this story. Such a great read.
Daisy is the wallflower of the McGregor sisters. She is the plain one, the one no one notices. She has accepted that and is all about her family and doing what she can to help out.
Mason does not really want any part of his brother's plan to woo Daisy's sister, especially since that means he is supposed to go talk to Daisy and distract her so his brother flirts with Daffodil. He feels really bad about it, but still does it because it is his brother. Only he finds that Daisy is kind of amazing and would anyone not want to be around her? How can no one see how awesome she is?
These two were so much fun to read and I loved how everything played out. Daisy uses Mason's guilt to secure herself a boyfriend for her sister's wedding festivities, but of course, spending so much time together leads to some real feelings between them. Oh, this book was everything. I loved the characters, I loved the story, I loved how it was more than a normal two people get put together for something and fall in love story. It was amazing. The interactions between Daisy and Mason were so much fun and they were perfect for each other. I loved everyting about this story. This author is definitely a new favorite.
