From the New York Times best selling author of NOT WHAT SHE SEEMS.
Madison Nichols, aspiring actress, is floundering. Her rent is due and she needs a job. Desperately. After getting a tip about an open position, she rushes to Jameson Technologies and meets CEO Jared Jameson. Unfortunately, due to a misunderstanding, she is put in the awkward position of pretending to be his girlfriend. Not the job she was applying for. And when she finds out Jared lied to her to get what he wanted, she decides to get back at him. In front of his family.
Jared is stunned when Madison announces they are getting married. She pushed her revenge too far. How can he tell them it’s all a lie? And when his sick aunt asks them to be married before she dies, Madison comes up with a hair-brained plan to hire an actor and stage a fake wedding.
What they both don’t know is Jared’s father has found out about the fake wedding. And he’s got his own hair-brained plan.
This is a sweet romance, appropriate for any age.

Am I the only one who thinks the chick on the cover looks like Rachel McAdams in "Mean Girls"? Even with her face half covered? That's what originally attracted me to this story alongside the fun sounding synopsis...unfortunately the story itself wasn't very memorable.
I read this about a while ago and I honestly can't remember anything significant outside of the description. I vaguely recollect the heroine bonding with the hero's father and something funny happening because of him but I seriously can't recall any of the minutia. I do remember how fun it was to watch the heroine needle the hero in front of his family though, so.... This was one of those delightfully surface level, mind numbing reads. Something to kill time with that you won't have to dig too deep with or get too emotionally involved. It was just a sweet little story with a nice romantic arc between two main characters who began with distaste for each other so that was nice to watch unfold. If I...
I picked this book up a few days ago. What really drew me to it was the cover and then the title hooked me.
Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. Lieske did a fantastic job with the story line and developing the characters! I think my favorite aspect of the book was the humor. There was a lot of it and I laughed out loud many times while I was reading it. I could picture each of the characters in her book and almost wished this was part of a series because I wanted to see more from them all beyond the end of the book.
I also appreciated that the book was clean, while still having some wonderfully romantic scenes. Nicely done!
I didn't give it five stars because I read the first chapter and didn't care for the hero at all. I was very glad I continued to read and got to know him a little better as the story progressed. I still found myself wishing he would apologize more or accept more responsibility for the hilarious situation they found...
Madison is a bit impulsive and emotionally fragile, but she has good heart. She's out of a job and following the advice of a friend shows up to interview for a job that doesn't exist. Jared is looking for the person he has arranged to pretend to be his girlfriend and assumes that is Madison. He convinces her to go along with him to the family gathering with the possibility of a job later on. He then admits the job doesn't exist. She goes along with the charade to a point - afterall, she is an actress - and she needs to pay the rent.
Her attempts to get even with Jared backfire when she finds that she likes his family and doesn't want to deceive them. The ending is predictable, but there are humorous moments along the way and the story is well-written. Those looking for a light and fun romance that could be shared with teens or parents will enjoy this book. It was just what I needed in between reading mysteries.
