"The one you like best. That's my favorite position. My favorite thing is making you feel good." 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 fiancé 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?

BOOK & AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: 4 STARS
I loved this book the first time I read it and now, with the audiobook, I had the chance to fall in love with Reeve and Sutton once again.
This was the second book I read by Lauren Blakely back in 2013. I loved the plot, the characters, the love story, the sexy scenes, the ending and of course, and knowing a little more about the HEA of Kat and Bryan.
Reeve is an actor who’s only starting his career and he has the opportunity of his life. It wasn't what he expected at first, but he agreed to Sutton’s deal to pretend to be her fiance in order to get an audition in her soon to be new project. But… Being a pretend-fiance is a hard job for someone who has had a crush with the other one for a while, right? But this fact made this pretending even better, hotter and very very interesting.
Sutton is a director who likes to control everything. She’s a control freak, now I understand why she’s best friend with Michelle (From The Seductive Nights Series, read my reviews here Book 3,5 and Book 4), they are the same. But she had a “weak” side, and Reeve knew how to reach it. It was awesome how she fought to keep the control but their chemistry and then her feelings toward Reeve won that power battle.
The narration of Emily Durante was good. At first it was a little difficult to connect with her performance, because her voice for Reeve wasn’t that fitting, but as the story progresses, I got used to her voice and I ended up loving her voice. I like the pace of her narration and her pronunciation is flawless. Her british accent for Sutton was awesome.
