Publisher's Summary

I'm pretending I'm in love with my best friend. What could possibly go wrong?

Leighton is my best friend. My subordinate.
My girlfriend.
That's the story we're selling. To our co-workers. To our friends. To everyone who's anticipating the breakdown of the year at my ex's wedding. It's a terrible idea. This ruse is going to f--k sh-t up. Losing her is out of the question. 

Touching her is all kinds of wrong.
And right deep in my bones.
Then Leighton slides her hands into my hair and presses her berry lips to mine.
And all that wrong fades to right.
I stop pretending.
I forget the woman who broke my heart. I forget our rules. I forget I'll be lost without her.
I kiss her back like I'll never get enough.
I won't. 

But I can't risk losing my best friend.
Even if she's the woman who might finally unlock my heart. 

From the author: Pretend You're Mine is a full-length, standalone romance with a pretend girlfriend theme. Come see why listeners say "no one writes broken bad boys like Crystal Kaswell."

Good Story!

Both narrators were perfect for this story. They brought these characters to life. Love their banter back and forth...can’t wait for the next novel with Dean as the main character.

This is how a recorded book should be narrated

I have hundreds of recorded books, I have my favorite narrators, but, when I downloaded this book I wasn’t prepared for this performance.
This is genius, this is perfect, this is how you bring the book to life and live the story. Thank you soooooo much.

Another great story from Crystall Kaswell

Pretend You're Mine is the third book in the Inked Hearts series from Crystal Kaswell. This is a best friends to lovers romance between Ryan and Leighton. They are fun and sexy and quietly lust after the other until the plunge is made. Crystal Kaswell has cornered the market on the sexy tattooed man in whatever he is doing. I love to read about all of her heroes and the women in their lives! And the narration is always top notch.

Hot Hot Hot

I didn’t realize that this story could get any better but I was so wrong. Listening to it makes it so much better! I fell in love with Ryan and Leighton’s story. What can be better than best friends becoming more? Nothing! They struggle to deal with their feelings and other outside situations. A must read!!

loved

I have loved these two and wanted them together since we meet them in Tempting. They are the best couple for each other. Ryan and Leighton really know how to play with all of your emotions. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book

falling for the fake girlfriend

Ryan is still trying to get over his ex...whom he caught cheating...more than a year later. To pour salt in the wound, he receives an invitation to her upcoming wedding to the guy whom she cheated with. Leighton has been in love with her best friend, Ryan, for quite some time now. She hates the hold that his ex still has in him. When she learns of the impending nuptials, she suggests that Ryan take his new gf...albeit a fake one. Ryan agrees to the arrangement and the pair begin attending pre-wedding events together. Penelope, the ex, still seems to harbor some feelings for Ryan and, even though he says that he’s over her, Ryan appears to indulge her. Meanwhile, he’s developing feelings for Leigh, but fights them since she told him that she’s in love w a guy who doesn’t know how she feels. Will the pair ever be honest w each other and get together or will Penelope always be in the way? Leigh also has some insecurities from her past that may also stand in the way of happiness. I really enjoyed this story, although there were times when I wanted to shake Ryan..and Leigh! The ‘supporting’ characters helped to round out the story. Loved the ending...now I need Dean’s story!

Great humour

Really enjoyed this book. Brilliant balance of emotion and humour. A lovely happily ever after. Dean was one of my favourite characters from the previous books in this series. Fantastic narration as always.

Hiding in plain sight

As always from Crystal, the characters are well rounded and the story gripping. Like many other Inked Hearts fans, I've been impatiently waiting for this book and I wasn't disappointing. Leighton is sweet and funny, but also no nonsense. Add in matters of the heart though and like many, her heart and head come to blows. Ryan is... Well he's just Ryan! He's been hurt so bad that he's blind to the obvious. He truly values his friendship with Leighton, that really comes across beautifully. As events unfold and their friendship is tested, you find yourself on the 'Will they? Won't they?!?' journey. I laughed, cried and shook my head at times. Both main characters pull you in and give your heart a squeeze.

I absolutely adore the narrators. They add another dimension to Crystal's characters and truly bring them to life.

Wow

This one kept you guessing right till the end. Even I wasn’t sure which way Ryan would go. I think what he thought was love turned out to be infatuation and complacency till he was faced with losing his girl. Loving this series. Narration was awesome too. Loved the banter between characters.
