Does being in a relationship make you a hot commodity in the eyes of would-be suitors?
Chloe Lane is about to find out. When her childhood pal, Ethan Webster, asks her to play the part of his girlfriend in order to test this theory, she reluctantly agrees. As a work-crazed fashion designer, boutique owner and soon-to-be reality show judge, Chloe has no time for a real boyfriend, but being part of a faux pair will do just fine. Not that she has any intention of trying to attract someone else.
Opportunity unexpectedly knocks when Chloe meets fellow reality judge, William Shannon. Super successful and super sexy, this high-powered entrepreneur inspires Chloe to test Ethan’s theory herself. Now, on top of keeping her fashion business productive, carving out a new role as a television personality, maintaining a fake relationship and attempting to lay the groundwork for a future relationship, she’s lying to William, lying to her friends, lying to her family and quite possibly lying to herself. Will Chloe be able to keep it all together, or are things about to explode?
My opinion: This book is about fashion designer Chloe and her quest to find a man whilst becoming a tv star on a new reality show.
The book is based in New York and has quite a Sex and the City feel, with lots of talk about fashion and men! I really enjoyed the book and immediately warmed to the characters.
Chloe has agreed to pretend to be her best friend Ethan’s girlfriend. This is much to the delight of her friends and family who think they should have got together a long time ago. It’s all going well until the god like William Shannon enters her life and makes things a whole lot messier!
The style of writing is easy to read and has a friendly feel, although it took me a while to get some of the American references (note to self, a blow out is a blow dry in the UK!). This was a really fun book and was humorous and romantic. Both qualities I love in a book.
Chloe has a little feel of Bridget Jones to her and I would compare the book to British writers such as Jane Costello.
My rating: A fantastic four stars.
I received an advance copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review
