Publisher's Summary

USA Today best-selling author Lexy Timms brings you a sexy, sweet romance that'll have you rooting for the underdog the whole way!

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?

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.

Not your average "billionaire" romance

Let's face it, billionaires in romance books tend to have many of the same characteristics. They're ruthless, rude and downright nasty.

I was pleasantly surprised with Dane Prescott. Sure, he is a workaholic. And yes, he does have the requisite revolving door for all the women in his life. Although up front we are introduced to a man who genuinely likes his assistant Allyson. He is attracted to her but apart from that, he shows her kindness and compassion and offers to help with a fake relationship.

Allyson Smith may have a crush on her boss but she's smart enough to keep her personal and professional lives separate. She is intelligent, an asset to the company and displays no TSTL moments. Refreshing!

Dane and Allyson's relationship is somewhat of a rollercoaster ride as they try to outmanoeuvre their respective family's machinations - be it trying to keep them together or keeping them apart. Additionally they question themselves and each other as they determine whether they are right for each other. Even with uncertainty around them, I appreciated that they did communicate. The messages were not always the hearts and flowers variety but they were real.

At just under 5 hours, the book kept me pleasantly entertained for an entire afternoon.

Verity Burns narrates this book. Her British accent was pleasant to listen to and both male and female parts were distinct. I did feel that the narration was at times too soft-spoken. I also found the first few minutes difficult to get into because I felt the speech bordered on the monotone. Overall, it was a good narration and I would be happy to listen to another of Verity's narrations.

Faking it 👍🏽

My first book by the author Lexy Timms. The narrator Verity Burns did an excellent job. The book is written well just a bit fast paced for me. I'm nosey I enjoy reading or listening to the characters Build relationships. It's a cute story line , now that I've read/listened to the first book I have to finish the series. It's a quick read/audio good enough to cuddle up with on a rainy day.
