Book Review: Faking It With #41
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.
Romance readers if you like friends to lovers and fake engagement stories, than, you will want to check out this book. I have not read the prior two books in this series but that is ok. This book can be read as a stand alone novel. Although, I am looking forward to reading the past and the next book in this series. I want to get to know the other guys and their love interest better.
Lena is definitely, not a "puck bunny". She is intelligent, caring, witty, and does not automatically fall for Ford's charms. Although, there were some really close encounters that brought the tension. Thus, when Ford and Lena did finally hook up, I was so ready for it and them. Plus, who else during a conversation about cleavage will call out a guy for not showing his "groin cleavage".
Author, Piper Rayne brings the heat with this book. The only thing that might have been "fake" is the engagement but the love is real.
