The newest romance from New York Times bestselling, Audie Award winning author Kylie Scott!
He walks the red carpet. She’s more familiar with vacuuming one.
When a scandal tarnishes the reputation of hot as hell A-lister, Patrick Walsh, he needs a reputation rescue, pronto.
Enter waitress Norah Peers–a nobody who’s average with a capital A. She’s available, dependable, and has sworn off men for the rest of her natural born life. In other words: the perfect match for a no-strings fake romance.
For the right amount of money, she can avoid waitressing and play the part of his dependable down-to-earth girlfriend. What she can’t avoid–dammit–is the growing steam between them.
But being hounded by the paparazzi and having her life dissected on social media is a panic attack in the making. And while Patrick might be a charming rogue on screen, in real life he’s a six-foot-two confusing, gorgeous, brooding grump, who keeps her at a distance . . . but also makes her feel like this bond between them might be more than just an act.
Being dumped on cue should be no big deal. Except being fake with Patrick is the realist relationship Norah has ever had. What’s a girl to do, but flip the script, and ask for a re-match made in Hollywood?
Sweet and fun read!
Celebrity romances are one of my favorite types of romances to read. I truly enjoyed reading Fake by Kylie Scott. It was such a sweet and fun read. Norah is a waitress where a famous Hollywood actor frequents. When she learns Patrick needs help to fix his reputation, could Norah be the one to help? It would be fake relationship and she would be compensated. Sounds easy right? But what happens when lines start to blur, and their chemistry is undeniable? Norah was just what Patrick needed. She was fun and laidback. I loved reading about their interactions and seeing them fall. This was a quick and entertaining read.
A Real Treat
There’s nothing fake about how good Nora and Patrick are together. What starts out as a means to repair a Hollywood star’s damaged reputation turns into so much more.
Patrick’s in a bind due to a poor relationship choice that has thrashed his career. Solution? Get a nice fake girlfriend to rehab his image. He decides that Nora, a waitress at an Italian restaurant he likes to quietly frequent, fits the bill.
Nora is currently on a break from dating after making one too many poor choices, leading with her heart and not her brain. When she gets the offer, she accepts because, well Patrick. And the money would allow her to help her grandma. But while she’s game to do her best, nothing prepares her for the whirlwind that is Patrick’s life or the enigma that is Patrick himself.
So. Much. Fun!
The story line was really good. If I could I would rate the book a 3.5. The beginning started off kind of slow and just odd. I contemplated giving up on it, but was already too invested. It gets progressively better, however the sentence structure and word choices just didn’t flow right at times. I found myself having to re-read several sentences because some things just didn’t make sense. Once I understood, I was just left thinking, “why did they phrase it that way”? Maybe a bad editor? Not sure, but this book could have been a 4 otherwise.
