Story was unexpectedly funny. Lots of drama and suspense with a bunch of thwarted romance thrown in. A few sexy times (mild). Narration was okay. Like the interactions of the main cast of characters.

Sexy but lots of teasing.

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.

Snapping just one pic of the A-list Hollywood couple tying the knot will pay her way through grad school.

Two stories so deeply intertwined, you'll think you know how they intersect... but you'll be wrong.... Zack Martin The day I met Emily Bennett my whole world changed. Sure, we were just kids, but I was old enough to know my life would never be the same. She was my best friend. My destiny. My fate. I wasn't wrong... I just didn't know how twisted fate could be.

2/5 rating: It’s okay. I am a fan of this author, but I found this book a bit boring. The big plot twist was interesting but predictable. I didn’t mind the narrator as much as other reviewers but would also rate as just okay.

Max Crawford has reached the point in life where he's starting to think about settling down. Unfortunately he's always been a little awkward when it comes to social interactions, and working from home doesn't help. He spends so much time alone, painting beautiful, historically accurate model trains, that half of Whitford has begun to joke that he may be a serial killer. Not exactly prime husband material.
