If faking love is this easy... how do you know when it’s real?

When her partner of over a decade suddenly ends things, Laurie is left reeling—not only because they work at the same law firm and she has to see him every day. Her once perfect life is in shambles and the thought of dating again in the age of Tinder is nothing short of horrifying. When news of her ex’s pregnant girlfriend hits the office grapevine, taking the humiliation lying down is not an option. Then a chance encounter in a broken-down elevator with the office playboy opens up a new possibility.

Jamie Carter doesn’t believe in love, but he needs a respectable, steady girlfriend to impress their bosses. Laurie wants a hot new man to give the rumor mill something else to talk about. It’s the perfect proposition: a fauxmance played out on social media, with strategically staged photographs and a specific end date in mind. With the plan hatched, Laurie and Jamie begin to flaunt their new couple status, to the astonishment—and jealousy—of their friends and colleagues. But there’s a fine line between pretending to be in love and actually falling for your charming, handsome fake boyfriend...

So good!

Really 4.5 stars, but what a great read! Finished it in day, just really took a hold of me and just couldn’t stop reading it. The characters are terrific and your really root for them. I wish was there was epilogue!

Felt loose endish at the end

Like that it’s was obvious the guy fell too and early on too

It was okay, but not a pager turner

Much like all of Mhairi’s books, this one is fine. She doesn’t tend to write page turners and this is no different. I found myself trying to force my way through it just to get to the resolution. Never truly got invested in the two main characters and never really bought into their chemistry. Definitely prefer You Had Me at Hello over this one.
