Move over, Colin Firth – there’s a new Darcy in town!

Jax Hawthorne is Hollywood’s sexiest bad boy. I’m a glorified secretary who thinks color-coding my library is a wild Friday night. So when he shows up after all this time wanting to make good on our childhood deal to tie the knot, it’s not because he can’t resist my perfect credit score.

He needs a fake girlfriend to rehab his reckless image, and I’m the (safe, sensible) girl for the job. I would be insulted… if the proposal didn’t come with an all-expenses-paid trip to England while he shoots a new movie version of ’Pride & Prejudice.’

Goodbye, my dumpster fire of a dating life. Hello, steamy nights with a chiseled hunk who knows all the right moves.

Soon, I’m knee-deep in the English mud – and on-set drama. But all our fake-smoldering is getting my very real panties in a twist. It turns out, Jax is so much more than just a reckless playboy. He makes me want to forget our ‘arrangement’.. and break all the rules.

Can our pretend romance turn to something real? Or will scheming actresses, control-freak PR crews, and a pesky little thing called love ruin the best (fake) relationship of my life?

I’m new to the Katie McCoy fan group and boy am I glad I joined. What a great author, someone who cleverly creates a story that captures you with it’s romance and sexiness. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel, intrigued by the developing relationship of our to lead characters and the destination of their romance. Here is a writer who clearly loves her characters, is invested in them and enjoys writing their story.

I always love reading a story that you can feel has been lovingly created, with a set of characters who aren’t perfect at all but loveable nonetheless. These characters are crafted to perfection, their turbulent relationship one that draws you in and captures your attention. Highlighting to me as a reader just how deep McCoy is in their world and how much attention to detail is included.

A great novel, one I really enjoyed reading, with just the right amount of romance to not make me want to hurl my kindle at a wall and enough steaming sexuality to keep me enthralled until the end. Perfect for fans of McCoy or novels in the contemporary romance genre.
