Publisher's Summary

An overnight billionaire....

When Carson Frost inherits a confectionary that rakes in billions but is too cash-strapped to last another 60 days, he agrees to take a loan from his late father's rival. There are two catches: Carson has to sign over a permanent stake in the company and marry the man's daughter.

Concocts a fake bride....

Two weeks before the wedding, he gets cold feet and claims he's in love with someone else. The investor says he'll still hand over the cash if Carson takes a stroll down the aisle - with the woman who owns his heart. Since he isn't even dating anyone, Carson panics. Where is he going to find a bride willing to jilt him at the altar on such short notice?

And whips up a little love.

Ella Hope is an actress happy for any paying gig, but jilting a hottie in public isn't what she had in mind. Still, she needs rent, and he's in a bind. How hard can it be? While playing at matrimony, suddenly their intimacy isn't so fake. Ella can't help but fantasize that Carson is her groom and they will live happily ever after. But once his company is safe, will he want her anymore?

female narrator reading male character's lines

Only at chapter 3 and I've just had enough of the cheesy way the female narrator is reading the male part. Wish duet type of reading is used for this one or just the male narrator doing all the reading.

Lady narrator

I tried to listen to two books from the series but failed to stay interested to finish the book. I didn’t like the way the lady narrator did her part, this is only my opinion. I can’t stay focused because of poor voiceover of the lady. I would really like to finish it (I can’t read the book @ the moment)

disappointed

Struggled to finish the book. I kept listening hoping I would get drawn in to no avail. the narrators leave something to be desired. when they speak for the opposite sex it's almost cringe worthy.

Female narrator is awful.

The story is ok and even convincing, but the woman narrating just crushed every chapter. When she speaks with a male voice is just gagging. Finished it because the story involving a bully being put in his place got me curious.

short and sweet

I love short and sweet story and this one has it. This story is about arrange marriage and love at first sight. I feel like the story is believable because I've seen it in real life. It's the reason I was drawn in. Male narrator hit the spot. On the other hand, female narrator was good. However, I'm not fond of her male voice but bearable to listen. All in all, I would recommend and you should not regret it.

Cute and Sizzling

This story is totally a cute and fun read. The chemistry between Carson and Ella is off the charts. The pace was great, the auxiliary characters were interesting, and I enjoyed every bit of it. Both narrators were excellent for these characters.

Really enjoyed this book

Very entertaining and enjoyable story with a puppet master trying to control the strings. The h goes back and forth which gets a bit frustrating but explanations are eventually revealed.

Excellent read.

Love the story, not sure I like the narration

Carson makes plans to have Ella jilt him so he doesn't have to marry a woman he doesn't really like in order to secure a loan from her father. He hires Ella to play the woman he loves. As always happens when fake relationships happen, things develop. Both of them fall for the other. Steamy, sweet, a little conniving on someone's part, and a HEA. I love the book. I wish they used duet narration or simple didn't try to pretend to speak as the opposite sex when they are reading their chapters. The voices kind of drove me nuts. So that spoiled it a bit for me but the story held me until the end.

pathetic.

I hate the Male point of view on love making. it's just plain pathetic. Men do not fall in love be cause the sex is good. This is a few hours of your life you won't ever get back. Don't waste your time.
