And I've got both firing on all cylinders. In fact, I have ALL the right assets. Looks, brains, my own money, and a big c*&k.
You might think I'm an a*&hole. I sound like one, don’t I? I'm hot as sin, rich as heaven, smart as hell and hung like a horse.
Guess what? You haven't heard my story before. Sure, I might be a playboy, like the NY gossip rags call me. But I’m the playboy who’s actually a great guy. Which makes me one of a kind.
The only trouble is, my dad needs me to cool it for a bit. With conservative investors in town wanting to buy his flagship Fifth Avenue jewelry store, he needs me not only to zip it up, but to look the part of the committed guy. Fine. I can do this for Dad. After all, I’ve got him to thank for the family jewels. So I ask my best friend and business partner to be my fiancée for the next week. Charlotte’s up for it. She has her own reasons for saying yes to wearing this big rock.
And pretty soon all this playing pretend in public leads to no pretending whatsoever in the bedroom, because she just can’t fake the kind of toe-curling, window-shattering orgasmic cries she makes as I take her to new heights between the sheets.
But I can’t seem to fake that I might be feeling something real for her.
What the fuck have I gotten myself into with this…big rock?
Another asshole/player type book intrigues me again... this time it falls short of impressing me. It starts off with a fake engagement between friends, all that just to impress a potential buyer for his dads company. Like other books fake love turns into real love, real fast.
Now there weren't as many sex scenes as you would think from seeing the cover of this book. At parts it was a little boring, seem to drag on for no reason. Even some of the dramatic parts, where you're thinking oh yeah! here comes the drama!, weren't even close to as good as you would expect them to be. I really wanted and expected more from this book, which was very disappointing. More details on their emotions while going through the drama would've helped. But I'm not sure much could make this book better.
I did really like how Lauren Blakely gave it a clean, concrete ending. I didn't want or need to know more about Charlotte or Spencer once I finished. This is a 2 star book for me, not really worth your time. I don't regret reading this book, but it definitely wasn't my favourite love story.
