Publisher's Summary

Working in Hollywood meant Jessica Dawson was used to lying. As an assistant to one of the biggest agents in town, biting her tongue and spewing out sugarcoated untruths were an almost daily occurrence. But fabricating alternate realities never spilled into her personal life, until three months ago when she told the biggest lie of all. 

While her dear gran lay on her deathbed, Jessica mentioned she’d met her soul mate. It had been Gran’s last wish to see all her grandkids settled down before she went to see Jesus. And as the only one still single, Jessica didn’t have the heart to disappoint her. 

No one expected Gran to make a miraculous recovery. 

Now, Gran was expecting to meet Jessica’s perfect man at her cousin’s wedding, which meant she needed to find a perfect man fast. Hiring a professional was the only solution. 

Enter Dave Larsson, younger brother to one of Hollywood’s elite. 

Sexy, funny, and just as smoldering hot as his super-famous sibling - he had talent and charm to spare. But most importantly, he was affordable and available. 

All she needed to do was haul Dave home, have him meet Gran and the family, then shortly after the wedding, “break up” with him. 

It was either that, or admit to her #1 Lie.

Only thing she didn’t plan on was the bigger lie she would need to tell herself when it was time to let him go.

Uninteresting

I rarely DNF an audio, but I found this story to be flat and uninteresting. It might have been livened up if it had been written in a dual narration format, but as good as Grace Grant is, even she couldn't save this book. Another issue was that the female lead grew up in Shreveport, LA and still has very close ties there. She is definitely a southerner. But there was no southern accent in the voice, no idioms, or anything like that in her speech or inner dialogue. That just made the character unconvincing for me.

So yes, I DNF'd after about 3 hours. I tried to listen to the end, but that was dull too. YMMV, but this was a fail for me. Luckily, it was in the AE package so I didn't waste a credit.

rom com junkie

I love a good rom com and this story delivered. Jess and Dave completed each other. Add laughter and hotness and you have a perfect audible listen for traveling.
