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.
Hailey Ellison runs her own successful matchmaking business. Due to the recent growth of her business, she’s in looking for new office space and is extremely particular about the space she’s looking for. She’ll know it’s the one when she sees it!
Max Sterling to the rescue! Max is Hailey’s real estate agent and while he knows exactly what Hailey is looking for, he cannot help but be enamored by her. However, there’s a big ol’ ring she’s rocking on her left hand and he’ll be nothing more than professional with her.
After a few months of touring property after property, Max finally show Hailey the space she’s been looking for from the start. While out celebrating their big accomplishment, the mother of a former client of Hailey’s exposes her secret she’s been keeping. Max, realizing what is really going on, steps in and helps her out. However, now that he knows what Hailey is really up to, he’s more than happy to play along in her little charade but definitely for his own benefit.
I love this story. Max is so patient and understanding, he absolutely melted my heart. I was completely smitten with Hailey. A successful woman who has insecurities like we all do, with a gorgeous, intelligent and sexy man falling at her feet? Yes, please! Hailey took a while to warm up to Max with all of the issues she had about herself, but it made me love her even more.
Can Hailey and Max work through all her insecurities? Can they keep faking something that is turning out to be so very real? Will Hailey get past her insecurities and let Max love her for who she really is? Will Max get everything he never thought he wanted?
I enjoyed this book tremendously. I first read Carly and Erika’s Big Shot and loved it!! These ladies know how to write a smoking hot love story and Faking It is just as good, if not better, than Big Shot!! I cannot wait for the next book!
I give Faking It by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde 5 stars!
