Successful businessman Ryan Bennett had agreed to masquerade as his wealthy cousin for a blind date.But from the moment Ryan saw Julie Nelson to the moment he should have said good-night, he was captivated and couldn't resist an invitation to share her bed. In the hazy afterglow of their heated lovemaking, Ryan confessed his true identity, claiming the passion between them was real despite his deception, but Julie wasn't buying it. Obviously she considered him the enemy.

Except now she was having the enemy's baby...

I can't believe how long I've been reading Susan Mallery! I'm shocked!!! This might have come out in 2006 but I didn't read it till 7/2008. Still very long ago. 

I love doing my A Blast From the Past post. I get to talk about those books that I loved and read before my blogging days. 

You no long will find the Silhouette Desire's in print. That line is no more. Desire's are still around but under the Harlequin name only. Used book stores might be your best bet to get this one. 

Like all of Susan Mallery's books I enjoyed this one. Because of how old it is I can't remember everything about it but funny enough I do remember the series it went with. How that happened I have no clue. Memories are funny that way. 

Because I was having trouble remembering it I went to Goodreads to see if that helped jog my memory. It's not something I usually do before I review a book. I like my reviews to be in my voice not someone else. 

I will admit after reading some of the reviews this one seems so dated. Yes, I know it's older and that's why. What I can remember of it, which is very little but I must review what the finger lands on, I enjoyed it. Mallery always adds a little humor into her books. Even back in the day where the page count wasn't high, this one is only 184 pages, she packed a lot to her stories. 

You could always count on her to do a story right! 

Even though I don't remember a ton I will tell you that you can't go wrong with a book by Mallery. She's a wonderful writing that will drag you into her stories and entertain you while you're there. 

If you've read The Substitute Millionaire or any other book by Susan Mallery I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡

The Million Dollar Catch Series


  1. I actually remember The Unexpected Millionaire the most of these three and I think you or maybe Chris loaned me it after you were talking about it at one of our book clubs.

  2. I don't remember this group of stories, but I probably own them all. I read her Special Edition reads more.
