Fake it until you make it…
The Proposal: Adeline Rigby will live with Accountant Jack Foster and pretend to be his fake fiancée for one month in order for him to seal a promotion to partner. In return, Accountant Jack Foster will intimately tutor Adeline Rigby in French before she leaves for Paris where she will fulfill her dream of attending Le Cordon Bleu.
1. Maintain distance. Three get-to-know-you dates before announcing their engagement will be tempting enough.
2. No kissing. Okay, fine. Three kisses. Maybe four. And neck kisses don’t count.
3. No touchy feely stuff. Or at least not too many public displays of touchy-feely stuff.
4. No sex.
5. All right, all right. One night of sex in order to be a believable engaged couple.
6. Two nights of mind-blowing sex to make sure first night wasn’t a fluke.
7. Absolutely, positively, no falling in love.
5 Stars: "Loved! This is a delicious novel about Jack, who desperately wants to become partner at his firm, and Adeline, an aspiring chef who longs to go to Paris to study... This is a fun book that is made me smile and keep turning the pages just as quickly as possible. Fans of the genre will love this book. I've added the author to my must read authors' list."
4 Stars: "What I thought was going to be just a light romantic comedy turned out to be that and so much more. This one has a deeper, more intricate back story that kept me reading to try and find out what was going on with Adeline...If you like a book that combines humor with sexiness and deep emotions, you should give this one a read. I am glad that I did!" - Heather P., Netgalley Review

5 Stars: "I absolutely loved this book. Adeline was such a hilarious woman...Jack made their arrangement so much sweeter and so very sexy." - Lori, Goodreads.com Review
5 Stars: "One of the most humorously entertaining stories I've read.Filled with sass, attitude, love and lots of romance, you can't help but fall a bit in love with Jack and Adeline yourself." - Becky B., Goodreads.com review
