FAKING IT                                           LEXY TIMMS

He groaned. This was torture. Being trapped in a room with a beautiful woman was just about every man’s fantasy, but he had to remember that this just pretended. 

Allyson Smith has crushed on her boss for years but never dared to make a move. When she finds herself without a date to her brother’s upcoming wedding, Allyson tells her family one innocent white lie: that she’s been dating her boss. Unfortunately, her boss discovers her lie and insists on posing as her boyfriend to escort her to the wedding. 

Playboy billionaire Dane Prescott always has a new heiress on his arm, but he can’t get his assistant Allyson out of his head. He’s fought his attraction to her until he gets caught up in her scheme of a fake relationship. 

One passionate weekend with the boss has Allyson Smith questioning everything she believes in. Falling for a wealthy playboy like Dane is against the rules, but if she’s just faking it what’s the harm? 



MY REVIEW:
    Wow! Has this book totally disappointed me.  I was totally into it too.  It was a page-turner that I didn’t want to put down.  I started it late in the evening and stayed up till five in the morning reading.  Still at 76% so had to go to bed.
     I reach for it in the morning determined to finish it and to my disappointment and anger, I had only about a page and a half left the rest was teaser chapters for another book she was peddling for another series the author has.  Like I would read or buy a book from what I now have found out is how she ends most of her books in CLIFFHANGERS!!!
     Nowhere in the synopsis/blurb does it say CLIFFHANGER.  I hate when authors do this to readers.  Not to mention the next five books deals with this same relationship for all five books.  Meaning five more CLIFFHANGERS.
     I like this couple too.  You had Allyson who works with Dane the billionaire.  And after three years of working together, they speak to each other as humans, not employee and employer.  The chemistry, that was able to be allowed out finally after so long working close together is so hot. Allyson is Dane’s personal assistant.  He trusts her like no other.  The only other person in the world he trusts more is himself.
     But at the end of an all-day wine and dine sight-seeing day with clients she makes a fatal mistake and betrays his trust.  He is not happy.  But he gets why she did it.  He understands family pressure and agrees to be her fake boyfriend for her brother’s wedding.  But she panics because she didn’t ask.  He hijacks the weekend accommodations and takes her to the weekend.
     The weekend gets leaked to the press and the fake relationship gets bigger and more out of control.  The funny is funny, the sex is hot, and the pain is felt deep.
     Here is my decision…
     Did I like her writing?   Yes: 1 star
     Did I enjoy the characters and the storyline?
Yes: 1 ½ star
     Did I like the CLIFFHANGER?   NO!  0 stars
     Did I like that the author wasn’t honest with the reader about IT BEING A SERIES OF CLIFFHANGERS?   NO!  0 stars.
     So, let’s tally this up 2 ½ stars.  So, I always round up and since I have to admit that up until the end, I enjoyed this author’s writing I am giving this: 3 stars.  Free on Amazon.  Follow us on www.1rad-readerreviews.com.
