Derek Rory never meant to propose to his best friend’s little sister. But when her boss tells a family-oriented investor he’s Stephanie’s fiancé, Derek can either play along or let her get fired. He’s hardly one to turn away from a damsel in distress. If only that damsel wasn’t adorable and sexy with a laugh that could melt any cold business mogul’s heart.

When a business proposal becomes a marriage proposal, Stephanie Miller tries to keep it strictly boardroom. But when things get hot under the table, it’s all they can do to stay apart. As the tangle of lies drags them deeper into the underhanded world of business politics, Stephanie finds herself in over her head—not just with her job, but with her “fiancé.” His eyes are cold, but his kisses light her on fire. If she’s not careful, she’ll end up faking her way into a real romance.

First of all, who doesn’t love a fake relationship romance? Because I do. Stephanie, the heroine of Faking It, is one of those heroines you just have to love. She’s vibrant and bubbly…and clumsy as hell. As a fellow klutz, I had a good time reading about her mishaps. She wasn’t exactly a bumbling idiot, just clumsy enough to make a tiny mess of things, which actually turned into the best thing that had happened to her in a long time.

The simple act of listening to the weatherman had her caught out in the rain without an umbrella, and that’s how she first meets Derek. The friend her brother wanted to introduce her to, anyway. Derek was hot and successful…and terribly emotionally stunted. But not in that annoying way that most men have of being emotionally stunted, no Derek’s father had done a real number on him and it is what causes much of the drama in Faking It.

Throw in a smarmy boss and possible spy for a brother, and you have a fast and fun romance that’ll have you smiling the entire time.

This was a classic opposites attract and watching how being together made both Stephanie and Derek better people was a joy and something you rarely get to see in modern romance. Sometimes Stephanie was stubborn as hell, too proud to accept help but you always understood her rationale, even if you wanted to beat her over the head with it.
