Publisher's Summary

Fake love, real sparks.  

When Celeste Lamontagne receives a wedding invitation from her ex, she's furious. The only thing worse than being cheated on? Seeing your ex and the girl she cheated with get married. Less than a year later. And as part of a two-week long Mediterranean cruise. But they say the best revenge is a life well lived, right? Not for Celeste, it isn't. It's arranging an elaborate fake relationship with someone to make your ex jealous.  

Lane Bishop is the perfect someone to do just that. Impulsive to the extreme, she loses her job right in front of Celeste. There goes Lane's best shot at becoming a stylist in New York City. She can have another chance if she agrees to travel with Celeste, pretending to be her girlfriend so that Celeste's ex sees her happy and thriving. The only catch? Celeste's an heiress accustomed to getting everything she wants. She's rigorous about details - some might say spoiled - which clashes with a free spirit like Lane.  

The sparks between Celeste and Lane become harder and harder to ignore. Can they convince the wedding guests of their passion without the flames setting them both alight?  

Contains mature themes.

Great Listen!

I'm a sucker for the romance stories where two people pretend to be dating for whatever reason. I know it's silly, but this book really did a great job based on a pretend relationship. "Pretend Girlfriend " had witty dialogue, humor, adventure, sex, TWO NARRATORS, and even a nod to Metallica :) I enjoyed the audiobook a lot!

Hit and miss

This kind of story can really go either way which made me hesitate to give it a try. In all honesty I was feeling a hit through most of it. The chemistry between the characters was there and left no doubts that they were meant to be. That's one of the hardest things to convey in any story.
It didn't start losing points with me till the main conflict; While it wasn't the one I had expected which could have been a pleasant shock, it wasn't. The conflict was kind of whishy washy. it didn't have the impact I felt had been building. in fact it felt too easy. the build up wasn't the kind you expect from an easy romance but the ending definitely was. the transition was jarring enough to make me pause and try to work out where all the tension had gone.

Great writing

I like an author who can use unique language, but the story was a little lacking and the romance scenes didn't have any OMG.

Loved this story!

I really liked the whole premise of this story. It was full of character and I loved the way the two women of opposite poles came together. The only drawback to the audiobook was the narration of one of the characters was not very good in my opinion, it detracted from the story.
