Pretending to be in love with the perfect man should be easy.
Single mom Jeanie Long was trying to save her butt at work by reporting her manager to the company owner. Instead, she finds herself greeted warmly by gorgeous company CEO Camden James…and introduced to his father as his fiancée. Now she’s been hired—complete with a hefty pay raise—to be the fake fiancée of the infamous “Penthouse Prince.”
Camden doesn’t believe in love. He believes in mutually beneficial business arrangements. With his real fiancée off cheating on him, Camden needs someone to help him prove to his father that he’s definitely ready to marry. Yet Jeanie’s combination of beauty and bluntness act like an aphrodisiac, and their “for the press” kisses look incredibly real. So real that Jeanie and Camden are either very convincing actors… or they’ve fallen for their own charade.

This was a sweet, if trite, story. Probably more like 3-1/2 stars, but I enjoyed it, so I rounded up.
It's weird, I've been reading a lot of virgin stories lately, and not on purpose. In this case, Jeanie hasn't given up the v-card even though she's in her late twenties, mostly because she's seen... ...more
Both the hero and heroine here are attractive, funny, sexy and likable. Hero may have resolved her internal conflict a bit quicker than felt realistic, but this was both sexy and sweet and overall appealing. Nice job by Nelson! ...more
