Sarah Harrison is used to strange customers.
Working at a lingerie store, she helps bored housewives, spicy sorority girls, repentant husbands -- and everyone in between. Yet no one sparks her interest more than Jared Gaines, the ultra-rich, ultra-sexy businessman who frequents her shop, buying delicate little "gifts" for the women in his life.
But one day, Jared sends her a gift from Bliss. Then another--and another. It doesn't matter how thoughtful he is, or how well-chosen the gifts are, or how sexy he is. It's inappropriate, and Sarah is determined to put a stop to it. Or at the very least, she wants to know why.
It's the oldest one in the book, of course. He needs a fake girlfriend for the weekend while attending his brother's engagement party. It's a terrible idea. She's certain it could even get her fired. So she absolutely takes him up on it.
Next thing Sarah knows, she's in San Francisco, pretending to be in love with Jared. Not that it's a hardship.
Except that the real feelings in their pretend relationship soon have her in over her head. Is he just faking it, or do they have their own shot at bliss?

Review: Dating 2: Fake Date
Fake Date by Monica Murphy is the second book in her Dating series. This is the story of Sarah and Jared who first met at the high-end lingerie store where Sarah works. Part of her job at the store is to meet with clients and help them choose their lingerie purchases. Her meetings with Jared are guaranteed to be tense, filled with innuendo, and a frustrating turn-on. Not that either one will admit that. When Jared starts sending Sarah gifts she calls him out on his inappropriate behavior and gets invited to his brother's engagement party in San Francisco. What ensues is intense chemistry, mixed feelings, self-doubt and wonderful romantic tale. Enjoy!
Not my favorite book, but it was an okay story. Probably wouldn’t read any other of her books.
Made me smile a lot!!
Holy chemistry! Jared and Sarah are adorable! The banter these two have is so funny. It is their way of flirting, I suppose. This is the second book in the dating series and it is also a hit, just as Save The Date Is. once again we have a brooding man who won’t let you inside his head and a woman who on the outside looks all put together and strong; when she really is doing everything in her power to hold everything together. Jared and Sarah start out as acquaintances. Meeting one another at Sarah’s place of work, Bliss. Jared seems to come in more and more often. And why? You think you know, but not until later in the book you find out. Jared is somewhat estranged from his family and is asked to attend a party. He really doesn’t want to go. But after some persuasion, Sarah decides to be his fake date to the party. But once away together, Jared and Sarah really find out that they are very compatible with one another. This book is very fun to read and had me smiling through most of it!
