Pretending He's Mine (Caught Up In Us Series by Lauren Blakely
Reeve Larkin needs a job. Sure, the actor is talented and gorgeous in that dreamy, broody sort of way that makes all the women swoon. But he lost out on a part in a big movie, and now his day job hours have been slashed too. What's a handsome young thing in need of a role to do? Sign up to be the fake fiancé of the sexy and shrewd casting director Sutton Brenner, who must appear temporarily attached if she's to land a coveted gig casting a red-hot film. So Sutton strikes a pact with Reeve to play the role of her fiance until she closes the deal. The trouble is - she's sexy-as-hell and damn near irresistible to him. And he's not only a great guy, but also the best dirty talker she's ever met. It doesn't take long for their pretend love affair to heat up, especially after that toe-curling night in the balcony of the Broadway theater. And that scorching afternoon in the stacks of the New York Public Library.
A red-hot love affair. An intense connection. But as the lines between make-believe and matters of the heart blur, can two people working in the world of acting fake it til they make it?
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a sweet little romance. Highly predictable and transparent, but still a sweet, soft quick read. I rather enjoyed it. It was short and simple, giving you enough to enjoy the characters. I would have loved to see it a little more in depth, a little more played out, but it was still a fun read.
