Faking It is the second book to the series Book Boyfriend by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde. This was another fun story that was easy to read, steamy and entertaining.
Max was a good man who loved his family and friends. He was a charming and smooth talking man but he was genuinely a good man. He was content with his life but when he meets Hailey he knew that he wanted more. I love that he was falling hard fast. Hailey was a woman who had lived through tragedy and was still healing over criticism that had cut deep, which made her self conscious. But she was determined to make something of herself and she did. When she interacted with Max, a playful side came out. I really loved them together because they made sense and balanced each other.
I did want more with Addison. I think I wanted to see her get more in trouble and a little more justice but at least it was served.
Rose Barclay was hounded by reporters where ever she went. She was not good at dealing with them always but then Steven McBride will be there to help as he will provide a fake engagement. With Steven so close Rose will find herself falling in love with him.
Steven McBride was home for a mission which would only bring sadness to him and the receiver. Steven will delay the news when he stumbles upon Rose and will find it necessary to help her. Steven will find that with every moment he spends with Rose the more he will want her.
Scandal and the Duchess is a novella in the series Mackenzies/Highland Pleasures. This novella is number 6.5 in the series. I really liked this novella. It was quick and fun. I liked that Jennifer Ashley is continuing on with the extension of the McBride brothers.
Steven McBride is mischievous but you know that he is a good man. He works hard and is a man who understands honor. Rose is a young woman who has been through enough but she still finds herself able to help others. Together they are on a mission and things will get heated. It is lustful but there is a sweetness between them, and it builds to a sweet romance.
I liked the mystery of the two pieces of furniture that Rose’s husband left in his Will. I was intrigued with what the Duke had left for his wife and when you found out the mystery it melted your heart. I loved the thoughtfulness of the Duke, it gave Rose something in the end.
