Confirmed bachelor Max Sterling isn't into rescuing damsels in distress, but when the very tempting Hailey Ellison needs his help, there's only one thing for him to do.
Step in and pose as her loving fiancé.
Except there is nothing fake about his attraction to her, or how much he wants her beneath him in his bed, moaning his name.
But what starts as a sexy, flirty, temporary engagement, quickly becomes something more serious that neither one ever anticipated.
3 Fake It Till You Make It Stars
Hailey is looking for the perfect office space for her matchmaking company. That's right, this woman who has never known love runs a reputable and popular matchmaking agency. Hailey even goes as far as to wear a fake engagement ring to keep men away.
It made her feel more secure and confident, and being in love gave a credence to her expertise as a matchmaker.
Max is the realtor who is hired to find Hailey her new office space. Hailey knows thinks he is way out of her league but allows herself to ogle him anyway.
They went out to lunch to celebrate finding Hailey's perfect property. It was all going so well until Hailey's little secret about her 'fake fiance' came out in a very awkward way.
This gave Max the perfect excuse to get closer to Hailey, they agreed to keep up the 'fake fiance' routine going to help get Max's stalker out of the picture.
So Max and Hailey start to get to know each other, Max soon realises that Hailey has a lot of body issues and insecurities about her sexuality after a terrible thing happened to her in college. Max then makes it his mission to show her just how fantastic she really is. I have to give a shout out for the phone sex scene, that was HOT!!!
BUTthis book is NOTabout the hot scenes as there is only 1 actual sex scene in the whole book, so if you're looking for lots of sex look elsewhere.
This is a story about overcoming insecurities, trust and finding true love. I enjoyed parts of this book but I did feel it was missing something as I found it really hard to get through, I think it was just a little slow for me. So IMO there is nothing wrong with this book it just wasn't really for me.
