Faking It by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde
Date of Publication: April 11, 2017
Confirmed bachelor Max Sterling isn't into rescuing damsels in distress, but when the very tempting Hailey Ellison needs his help, there's only one thing for him to do. Step in and pose as her loving fiancé. Except there is nothing fake about his attraction to her, or how much he wants her beneath him in his bed, moaning his name. But what starts as a sexy, flirty, temporary engagement, quickly becomes something more serious that neither one ever anticipated.
Faking It is book 2 in the series, but it can be read as a standalone. I suggest reading Big Shot, the first book, before or after you read Faking It, because you'll be missing out otherwise.
Max Sterling is a confirmed bachelor and the last thing he wants is someone changing that status, especially after his mom's last disastrous attempt. However, when one of his clients, Hailey, needs him to pose as her fiancé, he's more than ready help her.
I loved Max and Hailey! Hailey was fun, shy, not too lucky in love and since she is a healthy size 14, she isn't that confident about her looks. I adore that Max kept reassuring her about that, showing her with words and actions how attracted he was to her. He was a gentleman up until the moment he realized he could actually have her and after that, he just went with the flow. He was self-assured, without being arrogant, and sweet when he needed to be, and of course, I would melt right along with Hailey when he was wooing her. ;) They had unbelievable chemistry and this book just confirmed that Carly and Erika can deliver some very hot, hot, HOT scenes!
Faking It is a fantastic read, light, funny, sweet and hot, with just a sprinkle of angst to balance things out. You won't regret picking it up!
