My rules for being a Manhattan billionaire's fake girlfriend... No kissing. No fooling around. No falling in love. What can possibly go wrong?
Note to self: When your boyfriend dumps you on your thirtieth birthday, it's probably not the smartest idea to drink so much that you wake up in the same bed as the mysterious hottie wearing the gorgeous suit who you noticed sitting across the bar.
The only silver lining in my obvious lack of judgment is the promise of never seeing Mr. Suit again, not in a city the size of New York.
Or so I thought, until a story I'm working on about the country's most sought-after and elusive escort lands me in the same café as Mr. Suit. So I do what any self-respecting woman of my age would do in my shoes... Try to ignore him.
But he won't let me.
Instead he makes a proposition that leaves me questioning whether I need to have my ears checked. Be his fake girlfriend for a summer of wealth and excess in the Hamptons. In return, he'll help me win back my boyfriend's heart.
Juvenile? You bet.
Effective? Could be.
Bad idea? Most likely.
But what do I have to lose?
Apparently, a lot more than I originally bargained for.
Let the games begin...
Dating Games is a standalone modern retelling of Cinderella meeting her billionaire Prince Charming. If you like a sassy heroine, a sinful hero, and a whole lot of laughs, then you'll love this fake relationship romance.

Couldn’t Put it Down
Although all of the details led me to the exact conclusion I expected, I still couldn’t put the book down. I only took away 1 star because of how predictable it was, however the other 4 stars are simply because I had to keep reading to make sure I was right. The relationships between the characters was so immersive and I loved it. Aside from a few grammar and spelling errors, I’d recommend this book.
Too long, has some cute spots here and there, but definitely too much over the top unbelievable drama. Kinda hokey & predictable at times, really getting fingered on a balcony at a crowded 4th of July party in the Hampton’s & managing time pop off in sync with the fireworks finale so no one hears her scream?!? Ohhh kay, right.
The author can’t decide if she’s a romance writer or a Social Justice Warrior inserting phrases like “Use your words” and “Be her voice”. She flitters about from abused children, murdered spouses, & the caste system of the Haves & Have Not’s in the Hamptons.
As well as telling a cluttered, convoluted story of a sex-less male escort who doesn’t charge his clients because he’s (wait for it) a Billionaire!!! The author also bores us with history of 12 year stint as a loser’s girlfriend, a ridiculous scene in a bar that almost made me put the book down, and way too many sappy, cheesy Breakfast at Tiffany’s references.
Edit it down & don’t try so hard. It’s really obvious (and annoying!)
This book started so slow and the main character was so annoying. I couldn’t even picture the way the characters looked. The whole thing was irritating.
