Blurb (from Goodreads):One fake relationship shaken not stirred...
Bar manager Paul Chapman is sick of his family's traditional ideals. Marriage, babies, and a white picket fence? Not his gig. But now that his 'golden child' big brother is tying the knot, Paul's screwed. His ex will be there...and she's having his cousin's baby. Unless he wants to show up to the wedding alone and face his family's scrutiny, he needs a girl on his arm. Now.
Cocktail specialist Libby Harris has spent her life earning the nickname Little Miss Perfect, all to win the love of her wealthy, controlling father. But she deviated from his plan, and now her business is on shaky ground. If it fails, she might as well kiss his respect-and her dream-good-bye. Her only hope? Convince the hottest bar in town to take on her product.
Luckily for her, the owner's brother is sexy as sin and in need of a perfect girlfriend...
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“He was going to convince Libby that her ‘no sex’ rule was pointless. He had absolutely no trouble separating sex from emotion.”
This was a good adult contemporary romance, in which the main characters pretended to date.
The characters in this were a little naïve to think that they could pretend-date and feelings wouldn’t get involved! Paul so obviously really liked Libby, even though he wouldn’t admit it even to himself, and Libby seemed attracted to him also.
The storyline in this was about Paul and Libby pretending to date, and of course ending up falling in love with one another as real feelings developed between the two, which was pretty predictable really! There were a couple of hot sex scenes though, and the chemistry between the characters was good.
The ending was once again, pretty predictable, but I was pleased that we got a happy ending.
6.5 out of 10
