Madison Nichols, aspiring actress, is floundering. Her rent is due and she needs a job. Desperately. After getting a tip about an open position, she rushes to Jameson Technologies and meets CEO Jared Jameson. Unfortunately, due to a misunderstanding, she is put in the awkward position of pretending to be his girlfriend. Not the job she was applying for. And when she finds out Jared lied to her to get what he wanted, she decides to get back at him. In front of his family.
Jared is stunned when Madison announces they are getting married. She pushed her revenge too far. How can he tell them it’s all a lie? And when his sick aunt asks them to be married before she dies, Madison comes up with a hair-brained plan to hire an actor and stage a fake wedding.
What they both don’t know is Jared’s father has found out about the fake wedding. And he’s got his own hair-brained plan.
Victorine Lieske certainly knows how to write a delicious character! I adored Madison from the start! She was vivacious, charismatic and lovely. As an actress myself, I felt the author had a great handle on the type of character traits a true actress would have. I loved it. Madison was comedic and I found myself actually laughing out loud several times.
Madison's character opposite is certainly Jared, a guy who doesn't crack a smile and would rather pay someone to go on a date with him than form a meaningful relationship.
The book arcs nicely, showing the relationship change between Madison and Jared. Although I didn't always like the way Jared handled things with Madison, it just made their relationship more realistic. I highly recommend this light, fun, sexy read!
