Playing pretend never felt so real…
Commitment makes you weak. It’s playboy Carter Richardson’s motto. The only exception to the rule is his aunt, and when Carter learns she’s terminally ill, he rushes to her bedside. Filled with fear and guilt—and desperate to ease his aunt’s mind—Carter does the only thing a guy could do…he panics and blurts out that he’s engaged to his aunt’s enticing protegée.
Lauren Olsen has already had her heart crushed once by Carter. Against her better judgment, she agrees to keep up appearances—until Carter makes their “engagement” public in order to protect the family business. Now Lauren’s torn between obeying her conscience, and obeying her desire. Because while she could never trust the womanizing Carter she once knew, she seems to be falling for the man beneath the playboy…
The book is the second installment in a series and I haven’t read the first one.
In general, the book is well enough written, a typical playboy meets the right down-to-earth woman and discovers his softer side. I liked the first few chapters and the ending, but the story didn’t attract me enough to more than skim through the middle part of the book.
