Publisher's Summary

The newest romance from New York Times best-selling, Audie Award-winning author Kylie Scott!

He walks the red carpet. She’s more familiar with vacuuming one.

When a scandal tarnishes the reputation of hot-as-hell A-lister Patrick Walsh, he needs a reputation rescue, pronto.

Enter waitress Norah Peers - a nobody who’s average with a capital A. She’s available, dependable, and has sworn off men for the rest of her natural born life. In other words: the perfect match for a no-strings fake romance.

For the right amount of money, she can avoid waitressing and play the part of his dependable down-to-earth girlfriend. What she can’t avoid - dammit - is the growing steam between them.

But being hounded by the paparazzi and having her life dissected on social media is a panic attack in the making. And while Patrick might be a charming rogue on screen, in real life he’s a six-foot-two confusing, gorgeous, brooding grump, who keeps her at a distance...but also makes her feel like this bond between them might be more than just an act.

Being dumped on cue should be no big deal. Except being fake with Patrick is the realist relationship Norah has ever had. What’s a girl to do but flip the script, and ask for a re-match made in Hollywood?

Fake kept me up late reading because I could not put this story down. I adored Patrick and Norah, the fun, the banter...all the sweetness. Not to mention the heat! Kylie Scott delivers again!" (Carly Phillips, New York Times best-selling author)

“Kylie Scott has been one of my favorite authors for years. Her way with words, and her ability to make me fall in love with men I know I shouldn’t but do anyways, has always been the recipe for the perfect read for me. I absolutely loved Fake, and it was easy with brooding alpha Patrick and quirky lovable Norah. The two of them together are a match made in book heaven. I couldn’t put this book down once I started and know everyone will feel the same.” (Aurora Rose Reynolds, New York Times best-selling author)

“Kylie Scott proves once again why she is one of my auto-buy authors. Fake is an absolute delight...for every woman who wished her celebrity crush would fall madly in love with her. Fake is romance gold from one of the genre’s best!" (Naima Simone, USA Today best-selling author)

"Grumpy megastar hero whose rare smiles bring out all the warm and fuzzies, and the upbeat, every girl heroine he never saw coming." (Ally Blake)

FAKE HAS ALL THE FEELS

I had been anxiously waiting on this book to come out in audible for a while, and I was not disappointed. The story has all the feels, and I laughed out loud at some of Nora's thoughts about Patrick, and imagined the scene Kylie was trying to paint for me, very clearly.

I loved the story by Kylie Scott, and I loved Andi Arndt's narration. I listen to audiobooks while walking outdoors, getting the exercise I need during lockdown in Melbourne. Walking is not my favourite thing. However walking with the audiobook of Fake in my ear made walking a pleasure.

This was Kylie Scott perfection 🥰

I always enjoy her books and could not wait until this came out in audio. It was perfectly written with just enough drama to keep you engaged enough sweetness to make you swoon enough of a protective male hero to make you want to grab him and take him home lol Add all this to great narration and you have a 10 🌟listen. This is going on the repeat list.

A FAKE - FOREVER ROMANCE DONE SO DELICIOUSLY RIGHT

I do love a good ‘fake’ relationship where boundaries deliciously blurr and emotions get real.. and Norah and Patrick’s story was all I’d hoped for - and much more. A drool-worthy Hollywood Actor with a damaged career because of a bad reputation and the hardworking good girl financially stretched Waitress who turns that bad boy around. Yes, it’s pretty predictable - awkward start.. staged touches and kisses.. a solid friendship forms.. and sparks ignite into a fire as the closed-off actor slowly opens up to a down-to-earth woman. But folks, it’s also a very enjoyable, very charming and very addictive listen told from Norah’s POV. There’s a wonderful anticipation as feelings slowly change and finally they open-up, own up and reach the same page.. but what is true and what is false? Will Patrick choose his ex when she comes back on the scene? Will he choose his rekindled career when, and if, he gets the call this’fake’ has all been for? Or will time simply run out for the happy couple?

Worth a credit? Yes it was great. Andi Arndt did a great job bringing the straight-talking, loving, selfless, out-of-her-depth Waitress to life bringing with her the emotional dilemmas and lustful “never going to happen “ temptations that are front and center since moving in with her broody, sexy, generous, handsome, hot fake fiancé.

A little thin

I thought the author was a great storyteller but the plot was very thin. Initially you were caught up in this mystery about the hero and his behavior. But as the story goes on the clarity of his problems became very murky. Which in turn would have helped it have a better ending.

Brilliant

I absolutely binged on this story.

Andi Arndt’s narration combined with Kylie Scott’s epic writing make for one hell of an amazing audiobook.

Patrick and Nora’s story was…perfect. Angsty, funny, passionate, and unputdownable.

From strangers to fake boyfriend and girlfriend to inseparable, their journey was worth every second.

Stop what you are doing right now and listen to this book! Trust me, you won’t want to pause it!

Five stars!!

Not the best

I love Kylie's books but this one just wasn't as good as some of the others. It doesn't hold a candle to Repeat or Play.

Disappointing

Wow, so disappointing! Thank goodness it's over! I love Kylie Scott ... Stage Dive and Dive Bar series are among my absolute favorites but even Andi Arndt couldn't make me like this story.
