Synopsis from Goodreads
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 smouldering 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.
The 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.
Jessica Dawson has a habit of letting her mouth go into action before her brain can take charge. Hoping to make her grandmothers dying wish come true, Jess weaves an intricate tale of true love. While it did indeed make her grandmother happy, Jess now needs to find someone to play the role she has so cleverly crafted in order to appease her families curiosity when she attends her cousin’s wedding.
Working as the number one personal assistant to a top entertainment agent ensures Jess crosses paths with a lot of eligible bachelors including the luscious Larson brothers. Although it is Dave who Jess really connects with. No matter the underlying connection they both feel, neither Jess or Dave are willing to acknowledge it because of their work connection.
Desperation leads Jess to offer Dave the lead role in an indie production which just happens to be that of her one true love. 😂😂
Circumstances conspire to ignite the passion between Dave and Jess, involving a lot of humorous situation brought about by Jess’s lack of filter and brain to mouth connection.
Unfortunately, neither is willing to make themselves vulnerable to the other because their situation is supposed to be fake which levels them questioning both the feelings they have for each other and those they themselves feel. While it is blatantly obvious to everyone else around them how real their feelings are 💝
Jess’s twisted way of thinking adds to the upheaval creating unnecessary complications between the pair. I loved the inclusion of the other Larsson siblings in the plot alongside the unconventional members of Jess’s family.
As much as the problems mount against Jess and Dave you just know that two people so perfect for each other aren’t going to be kept apart 😍
