Derek Rory never meant to propose to his best friend’s little sister. But when her boss tells a family-oriented investor he’s Stephanie’s fiancé, Derek can either play along or let her get fired. He’s hardly one to turn away from a damsel in distress. If only that damsel wasn’t adorable and sexy with a laugh that could melt any cold business mogul’s heart.

When a business proposal becomes a marriage proposal, Stephanie Miller tries to keep it strictly boardroom. But when things get hot under the table, it’s all they can do to stay apart. As the tangle of lies drags them deeper into the underhanded world of business politics, Stephanie finds herself in over her head—not just with her job, but with her “fiancé.” His eyes are cold, but his kisses light her on fire. If she’s not careful, she’ll end up faking her way into a real romance.

Review

This is not a very long story (154 pages) but Diane Alberts is the queen at capturing your attention and heart with a short amount of pages. She has a talent for writing spicy scenes with crackling sexual tension but in a tasteful way. --thereadersden.blogspot.com
------
Faking It was the perfect feel good romance that had me smiling and giggling to myself all the way though. Stephanie and Derek have fantastic chemistry and this is definitely a case of opposites attract. --feelingfictional.com
------
Chemistry is an integral part of any romance book and Faking It has it in spades. It burst off the page and got right under my skin and I just loved it. --readingunderthewillowtree.blogspot.co.uk
------
Faking It is definitely a pleasure! It made me smile and laugh along with the characters' actions/thoughts. I love how her characters are so sweet and witty! --michellechewwrites.com
------
I loved this book; it was everything thing that I look for in a good book. It had sexual tension, romance, sweet dates, fake engagements, a sassy heroine, and a hot hero. --bsreviewers.blogspot.com

For this review and more my blog

I wasn’t expecting much from Faking It, I have been in a bit of a contemporary romance slump lately. I have read some nice books in the genre but nothing that blew me away. Finally my luck seems to have changed because Faking It was really, really good.
