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.

Will their ruse unravel completely—or will Mason and Daisy’s undeniable attraction ignite a scorching love affair that knows no rules? -Goodreads

I received this novel from Net Galley in return for an honest review.
This is the story of Daisy, who is the youngest sister of 3, and is known as 'the other, clever one'. We can all get this as a poorly disguised reference to her not being 'typically' pretty (or thin or straight haired etc). 
I thought the premise of this novel was intriguing, but I soon got annoyed with Daisy. She has no self esteem or confidence, and it soon got boring and irritating hearing her refusing or compliments. 
She is approached by Mason in a bar, because his brother is trying to hit on her sister, and need Daisy distracted. Mason and Daisy hit it off, but Daisy finds out that he was only chatting to her to keep her busy, and she decides to blackmail Mason into accompanying her to her other sister's wedding. 
I liked the relationship between Mason and Daisy, there was plenty of sarcasm and sass, and their interactions were fun to read. 
There was a pretty ludicrous and irritating twist towards the end to keep our main couple from being together, and a couple of twists within the story that felt a little to predictable and cliche, but overall this was a laid back and enjoyable read.
Overall, if you're looking for quick and relaxing read, that is pretty feel good, this one will definitely fit the bill.

Happy reading!
