It’s fake, but it feels so good.

Oliver Steele is supposed to be my knight in shining armor. He’s tall, handsome, and as cocky as he is rich. With his good looks and charm, no one’s going to suspect a thing. No one’s going to believe our engagement is fake.

But he’s taking this thing way too far. The way he wraps his arm around me like I'm his. The way he kisses me and presses his hard body up against mine. I almost believe that it's real. Almost.

He's doing it on purpose now; he loves that this is getting to me.

Two can play his game, I won’t let him win. By the time our week together is done, I’ll leave Oliver on his knees and begging.

But the minute we’re alone in the bedroom, I know I’m in over way my head. When he undresses me with his eyes, I realize I lost before the game even started. It’s only a matter of time before I lose myself in his touch and let him do whatever he wants to me.

I know what I want, but I can’t tell what’s real anymore.

MY REVIEW

If you've read Anaconda, then you've already met Brianna's bestie, Mindy, who appeared to be unfiltered and unapologetic. If you haven't read that book (and you really should if you haven't), get ready to meet and fall for her and Oliver just as I have.

Mindy's mother is getting married and is adamant that Mindy attend. She also expects her to bring her dear fiance, Harold, the man she's been engaged to for a year, as her plus one so everyone can get the chance to meet him. However, there's a slight problem with that. You see, Harold doesn't exist. Rather than admit to her lies, Mindy enlists the help of Brianna and her husband, Gavin, in order to find her a stand-in. Gavin finds his friend Oliver to fit the bill. It doesn't hurt that Oliver owes Gavin $500,000 after a poker loss and doing this one favor will wipe out that debt.

Both characters... actually I enjoyed ALL of the characters in this book. Mindy's family was... interesting... and I found them as open and honest as she was (well as she was most of the time). It was hard to stomach Mindy's weakness and her need to lie, but her coming-of-age moments where worthwhile and gave her character true dimension. I also liked watching Oliver and Mindy fall for one another and how, for the most part, they lived in the moment and didn't try to hide or fight it.

I'm guessing Mindy's sister, Roxy, may be getting a story of her own. That's my prediction and I think it would be fun because that girl is a riot!
