Confirmed bachelor Max Sterling isn't into rescuing damsels in distress, but when the very tempting Hailey Ellison needs his help, there's only one thing for him to do. Step in and pose as her loving fiancé. Except there is nothing fake about his attraction to her, or how much he wants her beneath him in his bed, moaning his name. But what starts as a sexy, flirty, temporary engagement, quickly becomes something more serious that neither one ever anticipated.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lighthearted, fake fiance trope FAKING IT by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde is a stand alone, erotic romance story in the authors’ Book Boyfriend series. This is real estate mogul Max Sterling, and professional matchmaker Hailey Ellison’s story line. FAKING IT can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary. Several characters cross over for cohesion and familiarity. Told from dual third person perspectives (Max and Hailey) FAKING IT is a fake fiancé trope in that both Hailey and Max are in need of an imaginary fiancé. For months Hailey has pretended to be engaged to ensure the success of her matchmaking business but had no intentions of revealing any important information or the truth about the who and why. Enter Max Sterling, Hailey’s real estate agent, and the man who stars in all of her fantasies and dreams including the use of the name Max Sterling as her imaginary fiancé. Max is desperate to stop his mother’s meddling in his personal life and offers Hailey the option of joining together for mutual benefits. What ensues is the building relationship between Max and Hailey, and the fall out when the truth is finally revealed. Hailey has issues with self-esteem including a struggle with weight and body image that pulls at Hailey’s need to succeed. Max is a successful real estate agent who finds himself attracted to a woman who claims to be engaged. Their mutual need for a fiancé finds our couple falling in love but Hailey struggles with the possibility of an expiry date on their building relationship. The $ex scenes are intimate and seductive without the use of sexually graphic, over the top language and text. There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Wes and Natalie, renovation expert Kyle Coleman, and Connor Prescott, who works in the construction side of the real estate business as an investor and property flipper-all first introduced in Big Shot #1. We are also introduced to Hailey’s assistant and best friend Brielle; Max’s parents Grace and Douglas Sterling; as well as Max’s his brother Alex, and his sister Kristen. The requisite evil is Addison Brooks, a woman who refuses to take no for an answer. The world building looks as the building relationship between Max and Hailey, and the potential for fall out when all is revealed. The friendship and camaraderie between Max and his friends leads to some humorous moments, as well as the heartbreaking possibility when the time on Max and Hailey’s fake fiancé story line expires. FAKING IT is a lighthearted, sweet and seductive story line with moments of humor, fun, falling in love and letting go of the past. We are witness to romance and love; friendship and family; betrayal and revenge. The premise is sexy, spicy and heartwarming; the characters are energetic and realistic; the romance is intimate and sensual. FAKING IT is a delightful and courageous story line as one woman steps out of her comfort zone and into the arms of the man with whom she will fall in love.
