The Book
Release Date: 4 April 2017

It’s only pretend…

And it’s only three months.

I’m in the midst of scrawling “I QUIT!” onto his fancy cardstock letterhead when my boss corners me. He needs a favor, he says. And then he asks how well I can act … 

Hudson Rutherford needs a fiancée. 

With his old-moneyed parents forcing him to marry some bratty hotel heiress and his hedonistic, playboy lifestyle at stake, the only way to get them to back off is to make them think he’s truly, madly, deeply in love … with me—his third personal assistant this year. 

But I can hardly stand working for him as it is.

Hudson is crazy hot and well-aware. He’s arrogant, spoiled, and silver-spooned. He checks me out when he thinks I’m not looking, and his life is a revolving door of beautiful women. Plus, he can’t even pronounce my name correctly—how’s he going to convince his family he’s in love with me?! 

I’m seconds from giving him a resounding “no” when he flashes his signature dimpled smirk and gives me a number that happens to contain a whole mess of zeroes … 

On second thought, I think I can swallow my pride. 

But, oh baby, there’s one thing I haven’t told him, one teensy-tiny thing that could make this just a hair complicated … 

Here’s hoping this entire thing doesn’t explode in our faces.

My Opinion  3.5 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is a book in where you can tell quite quickly that there is going to be a blow up between both characters as their is a major secret held back by Mari that should have been mentioned right from the beginning.

The characters are well rounded, but you have the arrogant, hot millionaire/billionaire alpha male Hudson with our strong leading lady Mari who initially cant stand Hudson.

The chang in demeanour from Hudson comes quite rapidly along with the change in feelings from Mari, which can give a feeling of whiplash.

Sometimes things felt a little unbelievable, but then this is fiction and not real life.  I especially thought the friendship baby angle was a bit weird, but i guess it does happen.
