Publisher's Summary

It's only pretend...

And it's only three months.

I'm in the midst of scrawling "I quit!" onto his fancy cardstock letterhead when my boss corners me. He needs a favor, he says. And then he asks how well I can act...

Hudson Rutherford needs a fiancée.

With his old-moneyed parents forcing him to marry some bratty hotel heiress and his hedonistic, playboy lifestyle at stake, the only way to get them to back off is to make them think he's truly, madly, deeply in love...with me - his third personal assistant this year.

But I can hardly stand working for him as it is.

Hudson is crazy hot and well-aware. He's arrogant, spoiled, and silver-spooned. He checks me out when he thinks I'm not looking, and his life is a revolving door of beautiful women. Plus, he can't even pronounce my name correctly - how's he going to convince his family he's in love with me?!

I'm seconds from giving him a resounding "no" when he flashes his signature dimpled smirk and gives me a number that happens to contain a whole mess of zeroes...

On second thought, I think I can swallow my pride.

But, oh baby, there's one thing I haven't told him, one teensy-tiny thing that could make this just a hair complicated....

Here's hoping this entire thing doesn't explode in our faces.

EXCELLENT BOOK, WELL WRITTEN

The book was well written. Its story was unique and very believable. At the end of the book we are totally in love with both Characters. Maribel changes Hudson and brings the good side of him out....no bad characters only good ppl. I loved the ending alot. This book will go down as one of my favorites.

The Perfect Illusion

Fun book to read, narration was good and writing just as much. It is one of those books that gives you a break from heavy reading.

Wonderful and fun

This story was sweet and sexy. The characters real and full bodied. You feel the pain and happiness of all of them, even the ones you want to hate. Great summer or weekend read.

Middle of the Road

I wish I could have liked this more. I saw that it was recommended by Laurelin Paige and I like her books but this books was pretty mediocre for me. The writing was good and the narration was solid I just had story issues. First of all, Hudson was a real a-hole for most of the first half of the book. I just don't find that level of arrogance and disregard for people's feelings sexy. I had real problems with suspension of disbelief overall. It made no sense to me how Mari thought she could keep her secret to herself for any length of time, much less the 3 months that she needed to pretend to be Hudson's fiancee and then be his fake wife for an extended period of time afterwards. Overall, there was a decided lack of sizzle to the story and that's what I look for in my romance novels.

Beautifully unexpected

This book was not what I expected, and that’s not a bad thing; it was beautifully unexpected. I enjoyed this story.

Fun read!!

This was a nice book, with a fun story.
No super heavy content.
I always love practical messy story themes that work out in the end!
