Being the heir to Jacobs Enterprises, I’ve been around fake people my entire life. I promised myself a long time ago that I wouldn’t change for anyone. Which is the only reason I’m a professional hockey player who lives on the beach and does as he pleases without answering to anyone—except my father.
And now, my daughter.
Being a single dad wasn’t in the plan but after a one-night stand who took off after the baby was born, this is my reality.
My dad’s been harping on me to quit hockey and join the company for years and now that I’m a father, he’s only intensified his efforts. Until he makes me a deal I can’t refuse.
Insert Lena Boyd, the Jacobs’ family PR rep. She’s beautiful and intelligent and not at all the woman for me—ask anyone.
My dad needs us to act happily engaged and sell the idea that we’re in love. If we’re successful I won’t have to join the family legacy—ever. Of course, I agree.
That’s when things get complicated. I thought I had her all figured out until I found out there was more underneath her judgmental sneers and eye rolls. It feels like everything is coming together for the future I really want—with Lena—until my past ruins everything.
Five stars for Ford
This is another page turner from Piper Rayne.
Ford’s cocky and ladies man. No settling down for him. That is until he becomes a single dad. The scenes between Ford and his daughter are beautifully written and will make your heart melt!
Lena is in charge of PR for Ford’s family and is used to having to spin stories about Ford’s antics. She has always had to be responsible. Mr. Jacob’s has a proposition for Ford and Lena that will give each of them something they really want.
I loved reading about and seeing Ford discover that maybe there’s more to life than always being a player. Loved all the emotions in this book.
Something about Lena drove me crazy. Her wish washy, want you, no I am not good enough behavior made me want to close the book and give up. I didn’t see a transition for Ford to realize this is the moment I love this woman, it was just bam I love her. This book feels rushed and sadly as a first I can’t say I would recommend to a reader.
Love the redemption of a bad boy
I’ve been waiting for Ford and Lena‘s book since Countdown to a kiss. Ford Jacob’s is the heir apparent to his family’s company Jacob’s enterprises. Ford doesn’t want to run his father’s company, he just wants to play professional hockey. Ford rebels against his father’s pressure by partying and fighting. Lena Boyd is the family PR person who is constantly dealing with Ford’s misbehavior. When one of his past one time flings dumps his baby on him, Ford’s father convinces Ford and Lena to fake an engagement to save his family’s reputation. I love a fake relationship trope and throw in hot hockey players and you have a really fun read. Love this series and cannot wait until the next book in the series. I received an ARC of this book from the author for for my honest review.
