Tempting Her Fake Fiance by Julie Particka ~ Review

Source: Purchased the eBook for 99¢

A proposition leads to compromising positions...

Journalist Stasia Grant needs a hero. Specifically one who will help her humiliate her ex-husband after he publicly left her for another woman. In Vegas for the biggest interview of her career, Stasia is grappling with a broken heart, her cheating ex (and the other woman), and a serious need for revenge. Her salvation comes from the most unlikely place charming and sexy-as-all-get-out action star Evan Stone. 

After spending his life playing a superhero, Evan has a plan for delicious satisfaction: a fake, week-long engagement. He'll not only show Stasia's ex what he's missing but gain some sympathetic publicity to turn around his image as a player. It's win-win for them both. But neither expected the sizzling chemistry that erupts whenever they're together. Stepping out for the paparazzi, Stasia and Evan are about to pull off the performance of a lifetime...but will they fall for their own con?,%201

Amazon still has it for 99¢



I so love pretending stories.  When I saw this one, I couldn't resist!  AND once I started, I loved it.  

These two have that chemistry that's perfect.  Previous relationships never brought the heat they feel together.  They both have an interest in pulling off the pretense.  As they start touching each other for the public, sparks fly.  Soon the pretense has a fling included and feelings can't be far behind.

What I loved about the story was the way the pretense helped Stasia re-discover who she is.  Evan sees her as beautiful and fun.  But her ex-husband had smothered all of that out of her.  Evan's on a mission to help her see herself as she is.  Their relationship became genuine and sweet as they developed feeling for each other.  Of course, nothing goes smoothly for couples like this.  Heartbreak was inevitable. 

The heat level is HIGH.  They explore some sexual fantasies with each other along the way.  And they were pretty much insatiable.  Their antics may have caused a few problems for them, hehe.

If you love a brazen book with some fun pretending, then this is a great one.  Last I checked it was still only 99¢.  Great deal.


About the Author...

Julie Particka was told to get serious about her future in Junior High. Several years after getting a bachelor’s degree in chemistry, she realized being serious was over-rated and went back to her first love–writing. Now rather than spending her days in the drudgery of the lab or teaching science to high school students, she disappears into worlds of her own creation where monsters sometimes roam, but true love still conquers all.

She can most often be located in the Detroit area with her favorite minions (the ones who know her as Mom) where she is currently hatching a plot for world domination. It involves cookies for everyone, so she’s pretty sure there’s no way it can fail…except the minions keep eating the cookies.
