As the Governor’s daughter, Charlotte McClain is an expert in playing pretend. High society, the men her mother shoves in her direction and a Pre-Law major are all a part of her perfect pretense. But when she pretends to be a nobody during Spring Break, she meets someone who rocks her world.
Mason Rowell knows heartbreak and Spring Break don’t mesh well, so he allows the mysterious Charlotte to seduce him. What should have been a fling, results in something deeper. After Spring Break has long since passed, he moves to Washington to pursue his graduate degree, but what he never expected to find living among the rich and pompous, was the girl who gave him the strength to change and the desire to start anew.
When the guy Charlotte can’t forget goes from a sensual memory to temptation in the flesh, her facade is put to the test. If she surrenders to his charms, she risks ruining her mother’s perfect career and master plan. Playing pretend is what Charlotte does best, but how long can she pretend she doesn't love the man who made her proud of her true self?

3 stars -An enjoyable read with a side of yummy
The title got my attention. I am drawn to stories where people are pretending to be together. This story wasn't one of those but it is what got my attention.
I really like Mason. He's a sweetie. From his name to his character, he's just a great guy. A gorgeous bartender, he's walking sexy. Not a player, not a bad boy, he's one of the few good ones. Coming out of a long relationship that ended badly, he's hurting. The week he spends with Charlotte heals him but then she's gone and he can't stop thinking about her. He needs cuddling. That's all I can say.
Charlotte is being controlled by her mother but at nineteen she wants to be who she really is. The week of freedom she spends on spring break gives her a taste of what she really wants. But for some reason, she won't tell her mother no. So she's miserable. She's not my favorite character and I wondered a lot about why she put up with so much from her mother but since I have no experience in her circles of life, I really don't understand.
Could I Put It Down...
It's a quick read and I read it straight through in an evening.
In The End...
This book is an enjoyable evening with a side of yummy scenes. If that appeals to you, then give this one a try.
