The Weekend Proposition
by Ella Jade
One weekend—no strings, no expectations, and no commitments. On Sunday afternoon it all ends, or does it?
No-nonsense businessman Spencer Cannon has a dilemma. He's headed to Connecticut for the weekend to attend his cousin's elaborate wedding. His whole family will be there in addition to his obsessed ex-girlfriend Ava. According to Spencer's brother, Ava has been telling her friends she's planning a magical reunion with her favorite ex-boyfriend. Spencer's not in the mood to deal with her, but he can't miss the wedding. He needs a plan.
Struggling Brooklyn waitress and aspiring graphic designer Dakota Vercelli has fallen on hard times. College debts, pending eviction, and her sick mother are taking a toll on her. A chance encounter with Mr. Cannon, CEO of Cannon and Carrington Advertising, leads to a proposition that may be just the thing to solve both of their problems. Spencer's offer—spend four days with him during the wedding festivities and keep his ex off his trail. In return, he'll compensate her generously for her time. He needs a weekend girlfriend, and Dakota needs the cash.
It was just supposed to be a business deal, but after sharing a room, kissing under the stars, and attending a wedding, their attraction is undeniable. Will the illusion end when the weekend is over or is the proposition just the beginning?

A spicy version of Pretty Woman, The Weekend Proposition by Ella Jade captivated me from the very beginning. I really enjoyed both the characters. Spencer Cannon is this practical no nonsense businessman yet he comes up with a plan that will help out Dakota “Coda” Vercelli and himself at the same time. Spencer has some major baggage in the form of his vindictive mean ex Ava, and that adds a pretty big conflict. Coda and Spencer have some amazing chemistry and it was fun to root for them to realize that they can be more than just crazy physical attraction.
I recommend this story, I really enjoy Ella Jade’s stories and this was an excellent addition to her backlist.
