April Hamilton wants you to know she hasn’t been on GigsForHire since that time she sold her futon after college. She doesn’t even spend that much time online. And even if she did, she would not be looking up personal ads. But going home alone for her family’s summer reunion is an invitation for every single relative to butt into her personal life. She simply can’t handle another blind date with the butcher, the baker or the candlestick maker from her hometown. So when she finds the GigsforHire ad for a boyfriend-for-hire, she’s ready to pay to play.
Heading Home and Need a Buffer? I’m the REAL DEAL.
Theo Banks has been running from the past for years. He’s this close to finally settling all his debts, and one more job as a boyfriend-for-hire will do the trick. He’s no gigolo. Please. He’s something of an actor, and he knows how to slip into any role, including pretending to be April’s new beau — the bad boy with the heart of gold.
Even if it means sleeping in close quarters in that tiny little bed in her parents’ inn. Even if it means spinning tales of a romance that starts to feel all too true. What neither one of them counts on is that amid the egg toss, the arm wrestling, and a fierce game of Lawn Twister that has them tangled up together, they might be feeling the real deal.
She only wanted to show her family once and for all that she had no need to settle down.
He didn’t expect to have the time of his life at her parent’s home.
They didn’t plan on loving every single second of the game.
But can a masterful game of pretend result in true love?

Wow I have to say it, this is pure pleasure to read. I loved this book, it was just full of all the right ingredients. A sexy swoony guy that I fell for, definitely my kind of man. A lively intelligent woman that doesn’t need a man, but fell in love with Theo because it was meant to be. They were so great together, and I just love ” I remember when”
I loved the advert on Craigslist for a fake boyfriend, I would have hired him. Sometimes a book has all the right ingredients, but is not always a winner. When it’s a Lauren Blakely it usually is, and this is no exception. I loved every minute, and was glued to my kindle from start to finish. I can’t wait for the Audio edition because I will buy it and listen to Theo and April brought to life for me again. I want to hear Theo’s cartoon talking vibrator voice come to life. This was sexy, funny and great entertainment, and I couldn’t stop smiling. This is definitely 5 stars from me.
✦The audiobook is narrated by Zachary Webber and Erin Mallon! ✦
