Working in Hollywood meant Jessica Dawson was used to lying. As an assistant to one of the biggest agents in town, biting her tongue and spewing out sugarcoated untruths were an almost daily occurrence. But fabricating alternate realities never spilled into her personal life, until three months ago when she told the biggest lie of all.
While her dear gran lay on her deathbed, Jessica mentioned she’d met her soul mate. It had been Gran’s last wish to see all her grandkids settled down before she went to see Jesus. And as the only one still single, Jessica didn’t have the heart to disappoint her.
No one expected Gran to make a miraculous recovery.
Now, Gran was expecting to meet Jessica’s perfect man at her cousin’s wedding, which meant she needed to find a perfect man fast. Hiring a professional was the only solution.
Enter Dave Larsson, younger brother to one of Hollywood’s elite.
Sexy, funny, and just as smoldering hot as his super-famous sibling – he had talent and charm to spare. But most importantly, he was affordable and available.
All she needed to do was haul Dave home, have him meet Gran and the family, then shortly after the wedding, “break up” with him.
It was either that, or admit to her #1 Lie.
Only thing she didn’t plan on was the bigger lie she would need to tell herself when it was time to let him go.
T. Gephart is a new author for me. When I picked this book I did not realize it was the fourth book in the series. After being half way through the book is when I made the connection because I was looking to see if the next book was an audible escape book and the whole series. I now have to go back to book 1 and read from there. Gephart’s writing is fun to read or in my case listen to. I loved the way the characters interacted with each other.
Jessica is a whole trouble of a mess because she told a big lie to her family. By the end of the book you have come to realize the person she lying to herself the most. Which I feel is the worst person you can you lie to. As whole Jessica as a character she was enjoyable. Dave was not what I expected. At first I thought that he was going to be some kind of player but was one of the most supportive “fake” boyfriends I have read. He was there for her every step of the way. Towards the end of the book I did want to hit Jessica because I thought some her decisions were poor.
I wanted to shaker her but what can you do?
GRACE GRANT! I love her. She makes any story come alive. To me Grace Grant never had to compete with herself. I book I listen to I fall in love with her voice. Grace when she reads has a very good pace also she has a wide range of voices. There were accents in this story since they were in Texas for half if it. So Grace did a great southern accent.
10/10 would recommend this book.
Thank you all for joining me in our little part of wonderland. Please don’t forget to feed the unicorns on your way out.
Until next time
