He groaned. This was torture. Being trapped in a room with a beautiful woman was just about every man's fantasy, but he had to remember that this was just pretend.

Allyson Smith has crushed on her boss for years but never dared to make a move. When she finds herself without a date to her brother's upcoming wedding, Allyson tells her family one innocent white lie: that she's been dating her boss. Unfortunately, her boss discovers her lie, and insists on posing as her boyfriend to escort her to the wedding.

Playboy billionaire Dane Prescott always has a new heiress on his arm, but he can't get his assistant Allyson out of his head. He's fought his attraction to her, until he gets caught up in her scheme of a fake relationship.

One passionate weekend with the boss has Allyson Smith questioning everything she believes in. Falling for a wealthy playboy like Dane is against the rules, but if she's just faking it what's the harm?

It was ok.

The story was interesting but the narrator doesn’t do a very good job displaying emotion and I had a hard time paying attention because it wasn’t super interesting. (I did not pay for this audiobook it was gifted for review under a promo code)

Predictable and Monotonous

This is my first audiobook by Lexy Timms and although this was a cute story about a romance between a boss and his secretary, it leaves a little more to be desired. Allyson appears to be more than competent while performing her job but a total door mat to her family. Dane was not the stand up guy that he believed himself to be by jumping to conclusions and lashing out at Allyson when his mother was the one to blame was inconceivable. However the story would have been better if there was a different narrator. Verity Burns’ performance was monotonous and devoid of personality making the audiobook a chore to complete.

Great Story & Listen🎧 4.5 Enjoyable Stars🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This is the first book in Lexy Timms’ “Fake Billionaire” series, I enjoyed her writing style and the interesting storylines she created. They grabbed my attention right from the start and captivated it straight to the end and what an ending it is!!! The character are likable and easy to relate to, my heart went out to Allyson, she is constantly be verbally beaten by her parents and bitch of a sister. So she does a foolish thing and makes up a story that she is dating her rich boss. Her boss, Dane Prescott, finds out about this lie and agrees to be her date for her brothers wedding. The two hit it off, she always crushed on Dane and it seems he has a soft spot for her as well. When one lie leads into another they both get in deep, with her family, his family and even business partners. Dane’s world is a cut throat world but Allyson can stand up to the best of them. I admired her strength and ability to think on her feet. Dane disappointed me when he jumped to conclusions, but redeemed himself when he looked out for her best interest even if it meant pushing her away. Lexy Timms fit an impressive amount of story into this book, it is well plotted and there is never a dull moment, with plenty of drama, some angst, twists and turns, some heartfelt moments and some hot ones. Thank you for this great story, I am looking forward to what comes next for Allyson and Dane in the next book of the series, “Temporary CEO”.

Verity Burns is a talented narrator and voice artist. She does a nice job bringing the characters and their story to life. Her portrayal of the characters is spot on, she captures and project their emotions it into her performance. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for the great listen🎧

Allyson flips sides of society.

I voluntarily reviewed this audiobook by receiving it as a gift. When I read the blurb I like the genre of a boss and his assistant becoming romantically involved, but I didn’t connect with the characters as much as I wanted to. Even though Danes character was handsome and rich he was cold and arrogant at times. Allyson acted meek while in his high society world, but when at work she handled any problem with ease.
It would’ve been more enjoyable if she didn’t take anyone’s crap. This is only my opinion and shouldn’t prevent you from reading or listening to this book.

Sweet and Sexy start to this series!

I love fake relationship romance and this is a fun story. Allyson is a smart, hardworking assistant and is crushing on her boss. When her family gives her a hard time for not having a boyfriend, she tells them what they want to hear. When her boss, billionaire playboy Dane Prescott finds out she told them she was dating him, he offers to be her date for her brother's wedding. Little did Allyson know, but Dane has feelings for her as well. I loved how sweet and protective he was of Allyson. But when you are an eligible hot billionaire bachelor, you can't make a move without the press finding out. Now their little weekend of deception takes on a life of it's own. This fun, emotional, sweet and sexy romance has twists and turns that keep you totally engaged. Narrator, Verity Burns, had a pleasant voice, with good articulation. I felt it was a bit monotone at times and would have loved more passion and emotion in her performance. I did enjoy this book tho and am looking forward to finding out what happens next in book #2.

Awesomeness!!!

This is one of the best stories I've heard. The way the character's relationship grows makes you smile throughout. Be warned that it does end in a cliffhanger though.

Great Book

Any additional comments?

Faking It by Lexy Timms was a great read. Dane finds himself attracted to his assistant Allyson. She has always crushed on her boss. When she has no date to her brother's wedding, she lies to her family and says Dante is her boyfriend and can't make the wedding.She never expected Dante to find out about her lie. I thought this was a great book that I enjoyed reading. I can't wait to read more of the series.

Disappointed

Would you ever listen to anything by Lexy Timms again?

I would try others, yes.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Verity Burns?

Anyone.....anyone else. She's monotone and it was a very difficult listen.

Sweet and fun listen

Allison and Dane were just pretending. But as with most pretend romances, they turn real. That is about where the predictions end and the real story begins. People meddling, secrets to protect each other and disbelief riddle this relationship to the point of possible devastation. Each chapter brings a little more light into this every growing romance.

Allison is sweet and easy to like. Dane is so protective and almost instantly head over heels as he pretends to be Allison's boyfriend. This romance is a sweet, ever changing romance. They capture the readers heart and you cannot put this book down. I really enjoyed the challenges the couple faces and how they solved the problems.

The narrator, Verify Burns is easy to listen to. She narrates at a good pace that is easy to follow. Ms Burns was clear and easy to understand as well.
